On the first day, when we decided to stop for lunch, I met Malika, a shepherdess.Here is a portrait of her as well as some pictures of the context in which his sheep live.
Stroll towards Akranes. Sixteen photos in total, the first three with the Before|After comparison to give an overview of applied processing to each type of photo. One the first (before adjustment such as 5 and 6), you'll notice the typical red shift of —neutral— filters (or supposed to be…). This detour was very nice, with […]
Sea salt accumulated on rocks after water evaporation.
In April 2012 (no need to point out that it took me a year before posting ^^), I took a full marmots "photo hunt" day. Besides the walk approach — somewhat "vivifying" with 14 kg of gear — I spent literally 7 hours lying in the snow for this result: two marmots photo, no more!
During an airshow, we often think it's best to have the longest focal length possible. The mind thinks “airplane”, and if possible, framed as large as possible on the picture. Often, it is not worse. Indeed, in presence of the ugliest weather for an enthusiast, namely blue sky and sunshine, you'd better frame tight, at […]
The jury has just selected my F/A-18C Hornet photography.
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 […]
Second and last day for Axalp (public opened). Those two F/A-18C Hornet are opening the show with a fast and low level pass launching decoy flares. Action ends in a fraction and the first day, surprised by them, I've not been able to take one shot with an aircraft on the frame, only “traces” ^^ […]
This is another view of the rock arch (). I used the same shooting technic as before: I intentionally overexpose my original shot. In fact, it's a photography technic where you help your camera to grab as much details as possible, because camera sensor are way mor efficient on highlight. It's also called to “expose […]
This is the mouth of the Courant on the Contis beach. This place is extremely slippery because of the moss. I ardently advise you to leave back any claim about the simple action of “walking”, specially when you move in those rocks with tripod and camera in your two hands. A nice technic if you […]
Back to my aeronautical shots, it has been a while… (but wait wait!, Bourget Airshow is coming ^^). Here's a little boy, one of the 30 and more the Swiss like to own. Well, funny enough, this aircraft is just an amazing flying machine I can guaranty this to you. Specially when it comes to […]
This F/A-18 was almost breaking the sound barrier, we can easily see the vapor cone in formation. Note the specific deformation, looking like an heat wave, drawing around the cone. Weather and light conditions was not really interesting on this shot, it was even difficult to post-process. Without such a cone, this picture destination would […]
