Landscapes by Marek Biegalski

“I’m commercial, portrait and nature/landscapes photographer. Born in Poland in the early ’70s, I have moved to Ireland in 2006. I’m a self-thought photographer. My work captures sublime moments of light and surrounding, which is a result of meticulous planning and preparation. I’m looking out for patterns within the landscape and the hidden link between reality and the imagination.”

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.

Misadventures In Landscape Photography

How a shared passion can create lifelong friendships
by Miles Morgan

As a professional landscape photographer, I’m finding it considerably more difficult to write this article than I had planned. Conditions here on location are extreme, which makes the mere task of typing arduous, and the head trauma I suffered during this morning’s treacherous shoot is making thoughtful words challenging to come by.

Actually, that’s a lie. All of it. I’m not a professional landscape photographer. I’m a cookie-obsessed commercial airline pilot observing my middle-aged waistline get larger and my hair grow cheerfully in all the wrong places. The only injury I’ve sustained today is a cut to my nose from shaving—which I didn’t even think was possible. Like most of you, I’ve found something that I love in the simple act of clicking the shutter and then going completely Frankenstein in Photoshop.

While I don’t Facetube or twerk or tweet or whatever it is the kids do these days, I’ll occasionally gather up enough courage to post a picture on a photo-sharing site with a “behind-the-scenes” look at the adventure and calamity of it all. On one occasion, while exchanging sunset pleasantries with a fellow landscape shooter, I was shocked to hear him proclaim that he actually had heard of my name and was following me on 500px. I turned to him, eyes narrowing, cookie crumbs dribbling, and said, “So you’re the one.”

Landscapes and Seascapes

Alexa Rakow is a landscape and seascape photographer based out of Santa Barbara, California.
“My love for photography started as a child with a hand me down camera and 10 rolls of film that were gifted to me. I quickly realized I loved capturing the moment especially when combined with being in nature and seeing breathtaking landscapes. While photography is my full time passion, it’s only a part time career. Most days you can find me chasing around a five year old as his nanny.”

Wandering Spirit

Hobart-based photographer Hillary Younger describes herself as a gypsy, never standing still while she travels to some of the most beautiful locations on earth.

Hillary’s Tips for Great Landscapes Images
1. Ensure there is a focal point – a definite subject. A visual reason you took this image. It may be the highest point, the brightest point, the most luminous point. The part of the image that spoke to you, that intrigued and interested you in that landscape.
2.Create a transition to the focal point. That transition is towards an opposite: it can be from cool to warm; from light to dark; from high contrast to low contrast; from big to small. This will create a sense of three dimensionality in the image.
3. Simplify the composition. Landscapes are complex, full of varying shapes, textures and tonalities. Look for lines and shapes that can simplify the landscape and lead the eye on a specific journey.
4. Master the techniques involved in capturing the visual information you need. Understand the dynamic range of your sensor and how to make the most of its capabilities. In some situations you may need to take multiple shots at different exposures to increase the amount of information your camera can capture.

Hillary Younger’s beautiful landscape images are the product of a nomadic lifestyle and a pursuit of beauty in places far from the beaten track. It’s something that’s also marked her out as one of our Nation’s finest landscape photographers. She shares her remarkable story with AP editor Mike O’Connor
