One of my favorite places to be in the summer wildflower season is Mount Saint Helens in Washington. When we first arrived to this location, the clouds were amazing right over the mountain. But they changed, and I found this comp where the clouds had migrated.

This is a focus tack of 5 images and an exposure blend. If you want to learn processing techniques, make sure to visit my website for tips or for a skype lesson.

New on 500px : Luck by DustinGent by DustinGent

On the way back from spending the weekend in the Olympics with my wife, I talked her into letting me try my luck at MSH. NOAA forecasted 22% cloud cover at sunrise – however when Mt. St. Helens was first visible from the road, there were no clouds.

An hour later, there were some clouds. Flowers are still blooming, so if you haven’t visited here yet, fear not as it will be prime within a few weeks.

New on 500px : Shadow of Greatness by RyanDyar by RyanDyar

I recently reworked this file. Taking the time to finesse it a bit more with different approaches to how I managed the light. It’s a tough scene to process due to the light just going flat at this spot during sunset while in the shadow of this wall of peaks. Working the contrasts and luminosity to make things pop a bit more, while adding in a bit of glowing light up top seems to bring it back to life… but I left it dark enough that it still looks shadowy and secluded.

I teach all of this stuff online via Skype screen sharing. I have also released my first video of these series I am working on about post processing. This stuff, as well as all sorts of other stuff, can be found at Ryan Dyar Photography.

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!

New on 500px : Molten Lava by MichaelBollino by MichaelBollino

Hard to believe we’re entering the second week of May and summer shooting in the high country will be here before we know it. I’m really looking forward to this summer as I have designs on visiting and shooting locations in Washington’s Cascade range I’ve wanted to explore for years. To tide me over I finished processing this image from last summer taken in Jefferson Park in Oregon.

This one looks ok on black or white… so I won’t preach to you this this time. Well, I finally found some spare time to finish my processing video… I’m new to the whole video editing thing, so it took my feeble mind quite a while to figure out the most simple things. I’m happy with how it turned out. I’m not the most graceful of wordsmiths, but I think I was able to explain things well enough! Many of the techniques I show in the video were used in this shot. So if you’d be interested in checking it out head over to http://ift.tt/HjSx9r and check it out. There’s also other stuff, you should check that out as well.
