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.”

Amongst Giants

Landscape photographer Ted Gore circles the globe creating stunning images of the majestic and the mundane.
It has never been more difficult to make a truly notable landscape photograph. Yes, technology has made mastery of the photographic process more accessible than ever, but it has simultaneously become nearly impossible to create something unique. To stand on the shoulders of those who have come before without recreating the same work is no small feat.

Unique Technique
To be clear, Gore says, in no way is he an illustrator who creates his images in the computer. They’re grounded in traditional photography. It’s simply that he uses multiple exposures and post-processing techniques to make his images come alive. He’s a talented visual artist employing the many tools at his fngertips, as the master manipulators of the traditional darkroom did for decades.

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.

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 🙂

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.

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.”
