How cool is THAT! Very nice shot and I find your processing very appealing.
Feel free to send me those LR presets anytime.

Nice!

Thank you Dave!!! I appreciate the compliment.

If you follow me on Facebook or are on my mailing list I send out Quality Freebies (like full Video Tutorials) quite often. I think I even sent out one on "WHAT ACTUALLY CONSTITUTES AN ORIGINAL RAW FILE / CUSTOM INTELLIGENT PRESETS." Some months back this year.

The next one in the making is about Linear Capture (how our cameras capture light) and Gamma Encoded Space (what has to be done to the Raw files so we can even see them) and how shooting to the right of the histogram is still quite relevant (if quality is your aim) even with the new generation of Sony and Nikon cameras.

solid pics. lovely. Could you tell us a bit about what camera and lenses you used? I'm assuming not a smartphone.


Sorry, I did not catch this question until now. Also, sorry I did not put it in the original post (I usually do).

Sony A7R2
Canon [email protected]
f/16
320 ISO
1/30th
A super quick Handheld shot between two people tripods because I was leading a workshop.
In post-processing, this is quite close to my custom default LR and Camera Raw Presets for Nikon and Sony cameras. Mainly just a handful of small corrections/fine tuning. 80% in LR 20% in Photoshop. All on an X-Rite i1Display Pro Calibrated 27inch Mac Thunderbolt at the general industry WEB standard of:

2.2 Gamma
6500 White Point
125 CD (candelas, or Luminance or brightness)

The real factor here is the moment. Whether I shot it Canon, Nikon, Sony or other. Whether I shot it at 42MP or even with my old Canon 10D (6MP) it still would look the same.


Hope it helps.

Oh my this is good. Those red streaks coming down in front of the white background really sets it off. The clarity of the ridge is incredible. Very nice work while you were working.

Just an absolutely crazy shot Mark. That red rain stuff is up there when it comes to the very best atmospherics one can wish for in a landscape image. I got it once in Hovenweep last August but would prefer having it up on the North Rim!

That is one of the most gorgeous photos I have ever seen in my life! The Grand Canyon is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places on earth. I hope we have as much luck this year. I am so looking forward to your workshop! It couldn't get here soon enough!

Thank you so much for posting all your gorgeous work ... it is so inspiring!

Hi Robert! Thank you so very much! I can not wait!!! Nothing I enjoy more!

This really took a very non-linear approach to get (for my clients and the quick snap for myself). In fact right after this blood-red sky and rainbow, the next day I got my clients another blood red sky and rainbow (double) and even massive lightning strikes in the scene at a very remote and super epic/vista location. The only way I was able to pull that off was by very intensive, hour by hour, weather study (all apps, all websites...) some general guesswork (due to having lived down there in the desert for years) and especially my client's awesome willingness to ditch the idea of having a linear itinerary or always knowing exactly where they are going next, or having to have a hotel every day. We literally chased the weather (and my intuition about it) to both locations and scored. Late morning (and sometimes even midday) on either day, we were not entirely sure where we were going for the evening shoot. People with heavy control issues usually don't like this type of approach. But those who are willing to trust me and put getting great light (thus images) as a major priority for a photo workshop are more than willing to do what it takes to catch the great light and more often this approach pays off in spades. People sometimes say "you were so lucky." As we know luck favors the prepared. A lot of workshops are not run this way. But I totally understand. Sometimes people want a Day1, Day 2... itinerary. My opinion is that this drastically lowers the chances for awesome light.

Which is exactly why I chose you for my first workshop. That is the EXACT approach needed to get the amazing photos you get. I am ready to sleep on the ground if that's what it takes. I am so super excited!
