Its been a while since the last post – here are a few shots which I came upon the other day.
They fit perfectly in my Horizons series as seen in earlier posts.
Nothing changed … mostly water and sky, simplicity/minimalism, lots of negative space.
Some are multi exposures, some very long exposures, softening the water.

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather                                               ― John Ruskin

I’m about to go back to Pukaskwa Natl. Park for my workshops and haven’t edited all shots from the previous visit yet. So-here are some more fog images.
Three of them show my camping-tarp … shots I would usually avoid. Days of fog at Superior are just magic and more interesting in any way than sunny, blue-sky ones. As a matter of fact, sunny, mid-day light would be my last choice … anywhere. The first ‘fog-blog’ showed more of it hovering in the distance, but here we’re right in it … thick and quiet. Going back, I hope for a major storm and dark clouds. 

Workshops start Thursday, August 29

“Skies”

I like to depart from reality. All creativity is about the distinction between the natural design observed and the personal design created … impression instead of recording.
But here we have more of the ‘real’ thing … at least at first sight. Let’s not forget that NO photograph simply duplicates what the eye sees, let alone the final, mental image that our brain creates, called perception. And you, the viewer, perceive something else again.
Anyways … the landscape, or here seascape, is usually closely attached to realism and presented itself pretty closely to what we see here. But, besides perception, there are also the little technical tricks, like aperture settings / depth of field, long shutter speeds / blur of movement, ND grad filters, and more. Darkroom-work adds another level of personal touch. Ansel Adams stated that 50% of a photograph’s impact and success is darkroom work, which then was a chemical darkroom and now is a digital one.

The examples here all (except one) feature a low waterline, focusing more on the sky … as long as the sky is interesting. I also captured many new shots for my ‘Horizons’ series –  where the horizon often divides sky and water equally or is located in the upper part and mainly focuses on abstraction and negative space. But more on that next time.
These samples here are pretty ‘real’ and reflect the fantastic visual power of nature, including some ‘Jesus Pictures’, as I call them – you know … the threatening light beams out of majestic clouds as in silly religious publications.
All in all, nature put up some fantastic shows for me and I’m glad I had took the shots.
