New on 500px : Something Fierce by DustinGent by DustinGent

Discovered some more files I hadn’t done anything with. Wildflowers will be in full swing in a few short weeks. Fractured shoulder be damned, I will find a way to get into the backcountry to shoot new areas 🙂

Upon opening the files from the 1Ds, I realized what a ^$&ing dust magnet it was. If there is an action in photoshop to remove 1.3K dust bunnies from files, I’m all ears. I actually bracketed for this comp, which helps because the files fall apart rather easily.

Anyways, expecting to get light like this again in fields of pristine flowers, as far as the eye can see and no mosquitoes. 🙂 I’m working on a new website that will have some new stuff on there, incase anyone cares 🙂

This past weekend, my wife and I decided to spend one night in Mount Rainier NP. The purpose of this trip was mostly to scout a new area, and see what was there. If anything.

On our way back to the car, I noticed that a pretty awesome lenticular clouds was forming. I stopped and took a few shots but I wasn’t pleased with the comp. So I decided to just appreciate the moment and let go of trying to make photographs.

Once at the parking lot, I remembered a spot I’d found the year before. This isn’t a secret spot or anything. It’s the Emons Glacier vista, which is one of my favorite view points in the park. And I wanted to show it to my wife. So we walked over there and that’s when the sky simply went off. No warning or anything. Went nuclear in a jiffy.

Anyway, thanks for looking, check the links above and follow me on Facebook! 😀

New on 500px : Miss Independent by ramij by ramij

Instead of catching fireworks on the 4th of July, I decided to take the 2 hour drive to shoot wildflowers on Mt. St. Helens. Thought I’d miss fireworks, but my trip on the way back was a “drive-through fireworks” display through the back roads of Washington. It seemed every home had their personal show going off in their backyard. Very cool experience on both fronts.

Technically, this one was an absolute bear to process. Something like 10 focus stacked shots and manually blending that took me longer than I’d like to admit. I wanted to get up close and personal with the wildflowers, which meant focus blending was critical for sharpness front to back. It’s not perfect but I couldn’t look at it any longer. I’ll definitely be back to this location again next year.

New on 500px : Mt St Helens Twilight Cavern by kevinmcneal by kevinmcneal

I have visited Mt St Helens every year since I began photography and it never fails to disappoint. I was always am impressed with the variety of color you can find on this mountain in terms of wildflowers. This was in a valley i took while exploring this mountain near Johnson Ridge..
Thanks for looking – much appreciated !

Figured I’d toss this one up before the big influx of Mount Saint Helens shots flood your guys’ flow in the coming weeks.

I’m out for the weekend to hunt some lesser known waterfalls. I’ll report back on how much poison oak I get.

Anyways, I recently released a tutorial video that covers some of the techniques I use in my processing. I also lead in-field workshops, teach processing online via Skype screen sharing, and blah blah blah.

Also, I’m happy to announce that I will be co-leading a tour in March with my friend Arild Heitmann! 10 epic days of chasing light across Norway. Mountains, beaches, beaches with mountains, Aurora, long arctic sunrises and sunsets. It’s destined to be the trip of lifetime!

You can check it all out at Ryan Dyar Photography.
