The Bamboo Forest and some great Twitter Lists to follow

Some Twitter Lists for You!

BTW, I’m @TreyRatcliff on Twitter!

As you guys know, I’ve been using Twitter for the past 27 years or so. Over that time, I’ve built up a good list of people to follow. Now, I can share this list and more very easily with you. When you visit the links below, you can “Follow” the list. Or, you can also go through and follow the individuals. Any questions? Just ask below!

Do the good people on here a favor.  Follow the list, and then go through and follow some of the most interesting individuals inside.  Twitter is better once you build your own personalized list, and this will be a really good injection of inspiration into your world, I hope!

How to Use Tweetdeck

I made a video to show you how to use Tweetdeck to stay connected to members of the Stuck In Customs community!

To get your setup, do the following

Other suggestions for Tweetdeck:

  • Whatever interests you, make a “Search” column for it.  For example, my mom loves “General Hospital”, so I made a new Tweetdeck column for her with it.  Now, whenever anyone on twitter mentions something about General Hospital, she is the first to know!
  • Turn off the annoying sounds and the little popup notifier under the settings.  For me, it gets to be too much to constantly see updates!

After you follow the lists and some people therein…

Then you can then easily switch to that “channel” in Twitter to see the latest. Also, very soon you’ll be able to add that List as a Column in Tweetdeck, a program I highly recommend. As soon as they enable this, I’ll come update this post!

And, of course, be sure to tell your friends the fun of lists, especially those new to Twitter.  If people start out by getting good links with nice art and funny comments, it makes it a much better experience from the beginning!

Daly Photo – The Bamboo Forest

Today’s daily photo was taken while exploring the wilds outside of Kyoto a few weeks ago. It was a beautiful place! The walk took me into this giant bamboo forest. After strolling through it for a short eternity, I set up for shot. This is a standard 5-exposure HDR; it was shot with a 14-24mm lens. For those of you new to the site, you can find out more about my process in the HDR Tutorial.

    Wow, well worth the trip out. And again nice shot. Have to start really thinking about the setup of my shots. Inspirational, as always.

  • Stuck In Customs

    hehe John – it is funny how we keep going to the same places together!

  • Craig Ferguson

    Beautiful work Trey.

  • Birgit

    I can see myself getting lost there, too.

  • Stephen Butterworth

    Nice work as always. Congratulations also on the time travel – 27 years on Twitter is really remarkable :)

  • Debbie

    Wow, 27 YEARS on twitter. That’s amazing! ;)

    You were way ahead of eveyrone! Great blog picture today Trey, as usual!

  • Barb

    A cathedral of trees. Beautiful

  • Mark Miller

    I’ve got to say, this one is one of my favorites I’ve seen! I love the transition of color from the bottom up and the very smooth greens. Awesome photo!

  • John Smith

    I am looking for a dslr and I was wondering if you have had any experience with the d80.Is the thumb pad annoying? Thanks in advance, John.

  • Gail Moshier

    Wonderful spot to wander in, Trey!! Great picture. Wow, I didn’t know twitter has been around that long. I didn’t join twitter as I have enough in my life going on already, lol. Have fun, those who do. Thanks for sharing!!! Have a great day!

  • Ge

    HI! I’ve just came across your blog and I’m absolutely delighted!
    Already in my fav’s bar for a daily look up…
    Thank you for your great work!
    Keep going… :-)

    Congrats from Ge in Lisbon, Portugal

  • Stuck In Customs


    Mark – yes it is one of my favorites too. I even put it on my own desktop !! :) hehe

    John – I have not used the D80 I am afraid. I do have a “Digitial SLR Recommendations” area there on the right, though

    Gail – hehe – I understand… maybe some day! Actually, many people get on Twitter because it can “reduce” clutter by having you only follow a few things rather than a million! :)

    Ge – Thanks… I’d love to come to Portugal some day!

  • Synthetic Tone

    Really nice work on that shot. Love the angle and the processing.

  • Albert Knutsson

    I love this photo. The green light and the spots of sun coming through the tree roof is wonderful. The wide angle view sucks me into the photo. One of my favorites in this blog. (The image partly reminds me about the Flying Dagger movie.) Cheers, Albert

  • Dolby

    Beautiful shot Trey. I very much appreciate the aftermath work, esp the sunlight shining is brought out exceptionally well without spoiling the shot but it rather adds beauty to the shot.

  • casusan

    Oh wow! This is soooo beautiful Trey – what a super place to visit! Love it!

  • John Smith

    Thanks anyway.

  • Michael Tuuk

    Excellent! Another example of why I started liking HDR again (didn’t care for the overdone stuff I had been seeing when initially introduced to HDR and had written it off).

  • Jack Rice

    You can really imagine getting lost and submersed in the beauty and tranquility of this place, I think little other photographic techniques would do this scene justice, really where HDR runs ahead.

    Those Twitter lists are really rather good, I quite like the right-side of the brain list; good for looking at other artists and creatives works and experiments.

  • Stuck In Customs


    Jack – glad you like those lists — If you find some, please give some recommendations too! :)

  • Sathya Sayee

    Does your HDR book give the camera settings and lens for the images shown?

    If it does it would be a nice reference for those like me that are newbies in photography to understand the fundamentals of lighting and such. If it did I’m buying it.

  • Hoshiko

    …wow, amazing, are you the “superman” we are looking for? Thank you!!

  • Ann Courtney

    This is stunning – love it!

  • Martin Ayon

    WOW – Looking upwards to the top of the bamboo makes me feel dizzy, just like if I was at that place. You’re amazing.

  • Susan (5 Minutes for Mom)

    Brilliant. I love it.

    This is one of the best! Am curious what size you print at, and what printer-
    I notice one mention of a 60″ backlit print – is that your usual? 
    I do a lot of large images myself – up to 30,000px but only about 2700 wide – – 
    the wider ones have a definite proportion problem for wall viewing but do well for browsing as a narrative.
