- Capture the true beauty of sunrises and sunsets that explode with texture and color.
- Choose the best perspective and composition.
- Focus properly with your tripod, with or without live view capability.
- Combine multiple exposures together using luminosity masks.
- Execute a perfect autobracket in the field for seamless processing.
- Overcome in-the-field challenges, such as dynamic tonal ranges and soft focus.
You’ll also learn the basics of landscape photography, such as the importance of raw format, how to use your manual settings (aperture, shutter speed, ISO), and the best way to focus for sharp images.
A Complete Learning Experience
With over 470 pages, 8 tutorial videos, and 8 image files, I’ll teach you how to develop your own creative workflows as you explore a wide array of landscape techniques, both in the digital darkroom and in the field.
Also included is a portfolio study of over 50 of my most popular photographs. Each image paired with a wealth of information, highlighting certain factors that led to their development. Examples include how I judge light, using my gear to overcome compositional obstacles, and how to execute a successful long exposure landscape image.
I also discuss the technical side of each image – what settings I use, how to compensate for exposure, and how to evaluate your composition for any specialized workflows: for example, how and when to decide if a scene needs to be stitched or autobracketed.
With the Complete Collection, you will gain a full understanding of how to capture your own beautiful landscape and seascape photographs. These eBooks will direct you towards the development of your own creative workflows, helping you achieve greater satisfaction and joy in your photography.
Bokeh: Creating with Shallow Depths is an eBook written to inspire photographers to think beyond the confines of a deep depth of field. This 120+ page eBook is focused on guiding landscape photographers of all levels to widen their aperture and see the environment as light and shapes, and to create abstract, ethereal images that have a deeper meaning and interpretation.
By using a shallow depth of field and thin slices of focus, you can completely transform a landscape, manipulating an environment that usually can not be changed or controlled. You can create a complex or simple photograph by changing your depth, and this extensive guide can show you how.
Golden Hours: Photographing the Light of Sunrises and Sunsets is a 179 page eBook written to help guide photographers through the unique challenges that this light presents.
Many photographers will often note that their sunrise and sunset images rarely represent the scene they observed. By detailing the specific steps of my creative workflow, both in the field and in the digital darkroom, I explain how to successfully translate what your eyes see during one of the most challenging times of day to photograph by using a combination of camera and processing techniques. This will allow you to transcend the disparity between what you see and your results so you can create realistic, vibrant images of this beautiful light.
In Color Processing: Creative Development in the Digital Darkroom, I explain my color processing workflow in a step-by-step fashion, guiding you through each stage from start to finish.
In addition to learning the details of my digital image processing, I also discuss the history of my creative development and what led me to discover my own techniques. These important milestones in my photography can direct you towards the development of your own unique color workflows, and provide the key to unlocking the full potential of your creative connection for unlimited possibilities. Included with this eBook is an image file so you can edit along step-by-step in Photoshop version CS2 or later.
Exposure Blending: The Complete Guide from Camera to Process is an eCourse that explains the revolutionary digital darkroom technique for capturing a scene with a dynamic tonal range. By autobracketing your scene and using luminosity masks in Adobe® Photoshop, you can blend multiple exposures together and recover blown highlights and crushed shadows.
This is a common challenge for any area of photography, but landscape photographers find this especially difficult since we typically can not manipulate or alter the ambient light. In this bonus step-by-step course, I use video tutorials to explain the entire process of exposure blending by detailing my personal workflow – from autobracketing in the field to blending exposures together in Photoshop.
