A couple of weeks ago I shared a number of images from Utah and Arizona taken near the end of a long trip last year which took me from Alaska to California. We were joined on that trip for a few days by some good friends of ours from Seward, Bob and Kathy Bingman. I thought I would share a few of Kathy’s photos from the trip, one because it is rare for me to be in any photo, but mainly, because I thought they were very creative and well done.
In my last post I wrote about using graduated neutral density filters to overcome scenes with extreme dynamic range. If there isn’t a nice straight division, filters aren’t much help. In these situations, I have started using a process referred to as high dynamic range photography, often called HDR photography. This is the process I used to capture this image of the Barber Forest Service Cabin at Lower Russian Lake, Alaska.
This is how I saw Pedersen Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska. But with out a graduated neutral density filter or a similar tool, my camera would have not been able to capture the photo.
Winter is a wonderful time for photography. I thought I would provide a few tips to make photography in the cold more successful.
