Tilt-shift effect in Autumn

Tilt-shift photography is the use of camera movements that change the orientation of the lens with respect to the image sensor, or by applying the effect of a shallow depth of field in post-processing software. In practice, this makes a real-world scene appear as a miniature or toy scene, such as you might find in a model railroader’s setup.

Creating exceptional Brenizer panorama images

Atlanta-based photographer David Grano-De-Oro explains how Zeiss lenses help him create his stunning Brenizer images, sometimes referred to as ‘bokeh panorama’. In this in-depth interview with the Lenspire team, he also talks about the personal challenges of outdoor photography, his role as a photographic educator and how his autism has become his strength when creating compositions.

The author
David Grano-De-Oro
“Get out of your own way and embark on an adventure.”
David Grano-De-Oro began his love of photography during his last year at Dillard High School, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He started shooting photos to further his development in fine art painting. And it’s that root in fine art painting that directly influences his techniques in photography today. What’s more, he uses his autism to laser-focus on his work – an ability his wife, Kristen Grano-De-Oro, refers to as his superpower.
As self-confessed oddball, David boasts a more complex ethnic background than most – with Chinese, Jamaican and Dominican ancestry.

Canada: God’s own land

Helmcken Falls – Yoho National Park

– 8900 kms by airplane
– 8 hours by car in one day to get there
– came across into 3 bears in the rainforest
– 22 shots merged
– 8,6 gb the final edit
– 4 hours postproduction
And last but not least…
– scared by the fact the sky would not have been clear
– only 15 m to shoot before the moon rise
– scared by the thought the 3 bears where somewhere around me hoping they would not be approching to close to me!
This has been one of the most intense and powerfull experience in my life! I was in this amazing place (Helmcken Falls – Canada) that is one of the darkest place in the world! (in a scale from 1 to 15 is considered to be 1 – pure darkness)
Hope that something of the emotions of that amazing night would come even to you 🙂

Bulb Mode

Long exposure photos captured in Bulb Mode (30 seconds or more)

As Hamnoy sleeps… by Andy Fowlie
What brought this image to my attention immediately was the sharpness of the huts in the foreground. This scene is very moody and the huts contrast the image nicely as well as add depth. Also excellent use of Bulb Mode. This is exactly what I was looking for in the brief. Very well done on a wonderful image.
