The Invisible World | Photographer: Luciano Demasi

Luciano Demasi’s photo activity is focused on “capturing the uniqueness of each moment nature provides with its immense and stunning endless beauty”. He took photos in San Diego East County (including Anza-Borrego Desert) and US national parks.

His real artistic love is for infrared photography: “the invisible world is first imagined, then captured, and finally brought to life, to unleash creativity, passion, and emotions.The invisible world is part of our reality and infrared photography is what unveils true beauty by enhancing our perception”

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.

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.

Visual Love Letters to Earth

Photographer Aaron Reed shares his love of nature through striking landscape images. A resident of the Pacific Northwest, he focuses much of his attention on the temperate terrain and captures scenes of babbling brooks, massive forests, and monumental mountainscapes. Each composition is a celebration of natural light and color; together, they offer endless inspiration and are the essence of why many people venture outdoors.

Reed views his work—as well as photography in general—as a special way to convey and present his experiences to others. “In my opinion, the gift of a captured, and subsequently shared, memory found in a photograph holds deep value and importance,” he tells My Modern Met, “allowing each of us to experience others’ joy, pain, and life experiences despite being great distances and even lifetimes apart.” Through his photographs, he hopes to show the viewer the natural world in new ways and evoke the same joy that he finds when using his camera.
