This really needs to be viewed on a black background, so please click on the image.

An enjoyable evening out shooting with my boyfriend Ryan above the Grinnell Lake area in Glacier National Park. I’m getting excited for upcoming hiking and backpacking trips out in the mountains this Summer and decided to reprocess this one. Thank you for taking a look. 🙂

New on 500px : On Thin Ice by Arild_Heitmann by Arild_Heitmann

I nearly ruined my gear, my health, my teeth and my cojones to get this shot. So you better like it!

Besides, i have some big news….
I have teamed up with some pretty amazing guys for a small series of workshops. Some will take place in late 2015 and wont be announced just yet, but today i am proud to announce 2 rather epic workshops with two photographers that i have respected for many years…

In february 2015 i will be joined by Kah Kit Yoong at Magic Hour Travelscapes  for a 10 day adventure.

Then in march 2015 the dude of all dudes Ryan Dyar joins me for another epic 10 days.

Both tours covers some of the most amazing areas in Norway… Mountains, beaches, beaches with mountains, Aurora Borealis, long arctic sunrises and sunsets. It’s going to be a busy tour photographing some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.

Check out LofotenTours for the complete schedule with all the info you might need.

The white background kills the shadows on this. View it on black… please.

I went pretty dark and moody with this one… which captured my mood ad the time I was photographing this scene. We had some decent light and conditions, but I had to overcome some pretty serious obstacles to get this shot, and it’s overcoming obstacles that gives you the sense of accomplishment that makes certain images stand out to you.

First major obstacle? Making the 5min hike out to this spot. It was brutal, so tough. Even more so because I forgot my boots and had to make the long journey while wearing torn up Converse All-Stars. I immediately understood what it’s like to climb Everest. The 55f/12c degree temperatures had me in fear of frost bite and loosing a couple toes.

Second obstacle? Food. I didn’t get to eat dinner and had to survive on snacks alone. Earlier in the day Miles Morgan and I stopped at Subway (a tradition for us) and picked up foot long sandwiches. I ate half of mine and saved the rest for dinner. Well, I stored the sandwich on the side pouch of my camera bag. We arrived at this spot at Crater Lake and I set down my bag to wait for sunset. After about 30 min, I returned to my bag with an empty tummy, looking forward to indulging in the yummies I had saved. COVERED. IN. ANTS. I hate ants… almost as much as mosquitos. Both are pointless animals. So long story short, I had to survive on sunflower seeds and potato chips. I was in fear for my life.

BUT, I overcame the struggles to get this average shot!

All jokes aside, 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. In scenes like that, there are no obstacles to overcome!

Info about the tour can be found on Ryan Dyar Photography as well as my first release in a series of instructional videos I am creating (which covers techniques used in the making of this shot), info about processing instruction via Skype, in-field workshops and tours, and blah blah blah.

New on 500px : All Eyes by RyanDyar by RyanDyar

Yes, yes. This is one of the most iconic compositions from Ruby Beach… hell, even from most of Olympic National Park. But I just wanted to grab it real quick while out there with my friends Miles and Nagesh.

It was a busy night on the beach with a mass transit of photographers, so I ended up having to clone out a few guys from the frame. This is also a stitch of two horizontal frames on top of each other to get the perspective I was after here. Also a couple shots for dynamic range.

I’ve got a new video release I’m working on that covers some of this perspective blending stuff, as well as a few other types of perspective control techniques I use.

There is also a BIG workshop announcement coming up for some epic international Aurora stuff that I’m super duper stoked on.

Anyways, I recently released a tutorial video that covers some of the techniques I use in my processing (ones that were used in the making of this image). I also lead in-field workshops, teach processing online via Skype screen sharing, and blah blah blah… check it all out at Ryan Dyar Photography

Mount Baker, some blooms of Heather, and a sunset. Nothing ground breaking here… But a fun evening shooting in the mountains with my girlfriend.

I’ve got a very big workshop announcement coming up soon… so if you’re the Aurora shooting type, stay tuned for that. It’s looking to be an epic trip!

New on 500px : Broken Arms by RyanDyar by RyanDyar

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

New on 500px : Sun Tan by RyanDyar by RyanDyar

Spent some time at the Olympic Coast last week with some friends. Had a great time despite some of the woes….

-First night I had my backpack rummaged through by what I was sure was a bear… or Miles. Turns out, it was a coyote. I knew I should have put it in a safe place before crawling in my tent… but the one time I thought “screw it” was the time my bag got ransacked.

-In a mad dash to grab a shot, Miles dropped a lens. The sound it made hitting the ground was loud enough to scare away any wildlife that was nearby. It was a circus of expletives the rest of the day.

-Nagesh soaked his iphone in a creek crossing. Oddly, this meant his phone would not turn on, but the flashlight on the back would not turn off. We put it in rice… and that did nothing but make the rice taste like phone.

It was a heavy traffic week on the Olympic coast, running into some guys I knew, and guys I’d yet to meet. Was great to see some friendly faces out there, but the crowds are a little bothersome to shoot in. We ended up having Rialto Beach nearly to ourselves one of the nights and spent a couple hours getting soaked in the surf.

New on 500px : Through the Looking Glass by RyanDyar by RyanDyar

I know it’s Cinco de Mayo weekend and all… but if you could put your beer down long enough to view this on black it would be appreciated. It’s always interesting to me when I go back and view my old archives of images and see what I had previously that was “unprocessable” 6 years ago. When I shot this in 2008 I never imagined I would be able to eek out enough dynamic range or even make the light palatable enough to view it without causing a migraine. Years later with more capable software and a broadened skill set, the approach to this shot was simple and took all of 15min to process from start to finish. It’s only two exposures blended for dynamic range, some texture adjustments, a couple luminosity adjustments, and a significant amount of dodging and burning. If you are interested in how I go about creating my unique look in my images, I recently released a video about it. It’s for sale up on my site http://ift.tt/HjSx9r You’ll also find info about workshops, processing instruction via Skype, prints, and an article about my hobby of collecting stained glass portraits of minor league baseball stars.

New on 500px : Weather The Storm by RyanDyar by RyanDyar

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.
