Ok, this was NOT photoshopped. Apart from a small contast adjustment this is straight from the RAW file.

While shooting during sunset at Mono Lake, this massive storm came upon us. As the weather started to turn, I wanted to get a few shots of the clouds as they boiled over the mountains. I fired off a few shots and started heading with the group back to our cars.

Imagine my surprise to see this face in the clouds! Can you see the eyes? I know, they look Photoshopped, but they arent. Creepy! That’s just what I needed right before I went to bed last last.

During the course of this trip, I learned truly how valuable light is. This shot lasted less than 60 seconds before the light was too harsh

Landscape Photography: The Spray & Pray Technique

While on landscape photography workshop, we pulled over and jumped out of the car at the urging of our guide to get a shot that only lasts a few minutes while the sun is rising and only during this time of year.

I was completely confused as to what I was supposed to be shooting and just starting spraying and praying.  I was supposed to have gotten a layered shot of the different grasses in horizontal lines. Instead I got this, which isnt too bad as long as you dont zoom in too much to look at it. The 100-400mm lens requires a bit more skill to wield than I had at that time. Well, you learn through your mistakes.

Since I’ve started posting on 1X, I’ve started giving my photos names.

This one is “Among the Birch.” Yeah I know, not very original. Better than “Birch Trees #1” though right?

This is an abstract created by moving the lens up and down during the exposure. No Photoshop was used save for a bit of levels adjustment.

Yet even more dunes!

Another sand dunes shot from Eureka Valley in the Eastern Sierras.

I was standing at the top of a large dune during a sandstorm looking down into a somewhat protected area. You can see some of the sand devils on the horizon.

This is Eureka Valley Dunes #4

I’ve just started working on my photos from my recent photo expedition/workshop with Marc Adamus in the Death Valley / Eastern Sierras region of California. As I finish processing, I’ll be posting…

David Hellard's insight:

I’ll be posting photos as I’ve finished processing them, so be sure to check back often! (I have no idea when I’m going to be finished with these)
