New on 500px : As Luck Would Have It by alexnoriega by alexnoriega

Looks best on black.

An image from this spring up on the Rowena Crest. Got some nice color on quickly-changing lenticulars around sunset one evening with TEEDGEPEEDGE and aFein. It had initially looked like we were going to get skunked, but we got lucky with a break in the sky at the right time. Maybe it was this horseshoe formation of balsamroot that brought us that luck?

Utilized a perspective blend to achieve this composition. I normally would have liked to have the tree more prominent in the frame, but I felt this cloud formation needed to be showcased without distractions.

Sorry for reposting if you saw this yesterday, decided not to have multiple images up during the shenanigans.

A beautiful cloudless day hangin with Lil M and Patricia Thomas. Walter took this shot (technically) and I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. As the sun rose I looked over at my husband who was taking phone pics and reminded him (100 times) to click the other shutter!

New on 500px : Grand Spring – Grand Teton National Park by WildernessAdventureImages by WildernessAdventureImages

I will forever return to my favorite park in the NPS system, something about these mountains that rise above sage brush plains that keep calling me back. This year my focus was timing the arrowleaf balsamroot bloom in the flats of the valley. I timed it ok… 😉 This year’s bloom didn’t disappoint, even if I didn’t get the spectacular pink sunrise I’d envisioned in my mind.

Color of spring, Columbia River George, Oregon.
It was just before sunrise in Rowena Crest Viewpoint, OR during wildflowers season last month. The hill was covered with colorful balsamroot and lupine bushes. I am glad that I was there that morning enjoying fantastic sunrise scene.

I woke up to a rainy morning near the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon with Alex Noriega and Michael Bollino. Obviously my camera batteries died and it started to rain but Alex was kind and generous to let me use his Nikon to get this shot.

This was a tough shot to pull off… both with composition and processing. It’s a fairly extensive perspective blend that I had to utilize to get all the elements shaped up properly with the frame while overcoming the limitations of the natural elements and my own lens. It was all focus blended, blended for dynamic range, hand-stitched from different focal lengths, and then warped to get everything looking ship-shape again. After all of that it was pretty straight forward processing for me. Some texture work, some luminosity masking to get the tones proper across the board, and a bunch of dodging/burning (some of which is covered in my latest video tutorial).

I’m currently working on my next video tutorial which will cover many of these perspective blend, warping, stitching techniques I use. It’s pretty labor intensive work to put these together, but isn’t necessarily *hard* to pull off.

As always, check out my site for more images, info about processing instruction, in-field workshops, prints, and yadd yadda yadda that everyone else in this community does. http://ift.tt/HjSx9r
