Time Lapse and some video shots Quick overview Lionel find occupation during the Time Lapse by drawing aboriginal shapes on the sand Just the once will not hurt… My camera (was protected under plastic bag), after 3h of Time Lapse in a sandstorm
That morning, I was fighting step by step to tear myself away from the snow with my 18kg backpack, then, pausing a moment to rest, this panorama offered itself to me. It was startling. Below, two adjustments, the fist is conform to my “habits of realistic post-adjustment”, the second that I enjoyed to make and […]
A picture that does not have much fancy, I admit very willingly, except the fact that visiting Manly was very nice and I wanted to share you this little piece of coast fairly typical of the place. I hope one day to have time to prepare a short video of that day. At the same […]
Very simple post-processing for this picture of the Opera taken at sunset: underexposure, strengthening of the black spot and cleaning of sensor dusts.
During a walk around Cairns, we went along this clearing. I was struck by the atmosphere that emanated from it: it was beautiful, quiet, without harsh and direct light from the sun, nature everywhere, much less human. And at the same time, images of the many inevitable movies about Vietnam and one begins to imagine […]
Mid of afternoon at Manly with a terrific light and such a beautiful bay… I focused my adjustments by working on the complementary tones present at this moment (orange light and grey/blue sky) and I also worked on the sea surface: the light catch was pretty interesting.
Based on the raw picture, I definitely had to do something with it; something interesting on it prevent me to trash it. I then decided to adjust it using actual combat/action movie style.
The “Château de la Chatonnière” his gardens is very pleasant. This is a restful place. The adjustment here was mainly done to reveal details on the sky. I add a vignetting effect to better guide the eyes into the path, while a slight color correction helps to render the scene more like “the way I […]
For this backlighting shot, I use the Center-Weighted Average metering mode to mainly expose shadows (the building), get more detail and quality on this critical areas, while the over-exposure on the sky will be easily handheld thanks to the great highlights (“to the right”) sensibility of the sensor.

This is a two minutes exposure with a simple ajustements work: Slight underexposure and saturation, removal of some ground dusts, and also a fence along the right wall.
The jury has selected my Grey-headed Flying-foxe photography taken in Australia. This bat belongs to "Megabat" family and regularly flies in the sunday, even if it sits more likely in the shade of foliage. With over 22.300 unique views, it changes from Flickr ^^.
When you shoot a 180s long exposure in Sydney harbor, you can't hardly avoid to get your picture striped by navigation lights of boats. It happens here and I had to remove one of them. It's not necessary but I think the picture is better anyway. Note there are still light traces under the balustrade, […]
Back from half a day in Manly. The boat is going straight to Sydney, full West and I take this picture. Note the strange effect on the water surface caused by this little speedy boy (see below) — arf! —. I took the picture exposed on the right which means I under-expose it on post-prod. I also […]
I took this photo using the same technic as , but five minutes before. I post-adjusted the picture to logically reveal highlights details — like in the sky — and enhanced the color complementarity, less visible on the original because of the voluntary over-exposure.
What a chance to be there for this sunset in Sydney! Considering the high quantity of dark elements on the frame, I choose to expose at right. As you can notice if you do the comparison (see on the picture above), the non-adjusted version is clearly over-exposed. In fact, — as I explain it on quite […]
