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.
Real Vision Actually, it's even not the case because the long exposure has completely changed the way the scene was ().
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 […]
Diving under the ice of the lake of Tignes. This monitor give me a nice “say hi to the camera” before his dive under the 60 cm thick layer of ice with his “visitor” (in fact, it's 3 layers of 20 cm, two of ice, the middle one made of snow) About the adjustment, I gave more […]
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!
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 little wink to people who are using my Before|After adjustment feature on my blog. That's something quite different! ^^
As you can notice if you do the comparison (see on my blog), the non-adjusted version is clearly over-exposed. In fact, — as I explain it on quite many of my pictures — it's a photography technic where you help your camera to grab as much details as possible, specially on shadows, because camera sensor are way […]
Waiting for my first pictures of Australia to be ready for post, here's the windy top of La Grande Motte, 3.656 m high (3.456 m for the end of the skiable area). About adjustments, I've increased the exposure a little and modify the white balance to enhance the blue tones.
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 windy top of La Grande Motte, 3.656 m high (3.456 m for the end of the skiable area). I've been there quite a while, fighting against high speed and icy winds with lashing snow particles. But guess what? What a visual pleasure! About adjustments here, just a slight enhancement of blue (was dull) and […]
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 […]
