Five Days of New Tips/Tricks Videos! Day One
Each day for the next five days, I’m gonna post a new video here on the blog! Let me know if you have any questions… happy to answer!
I’m here with my friend Tom in the middle of Beijing. I decided to go to Tiananmen Square for the day and take photos… here’s a little of what happened. A bunch of people came up to me that had never seen a white person before; I was like a freakshow!
Daily Photo – Light on the way to Milford Sound
One of my favorite drives is from Queenstown to Milford Sound. I've made it about eight times, and I can't wait to make more!
Here's a tip for you as far as light is concerned. Some of the best days for landscape photography are those partially-cloudy days. This is because it makes the light sift in random ways across the landscape, lighting one thing while darkening the next. This can do cool stuff, as you see below, such as light up the trees while darkening the mountain behind… it's the kind of stuff that would take you ages in photoshop (or be nearly impossible!!). So, next time you are in a partially-cloudy situation, be more patient than normal and watch the light as it sways around from one thing to the next…
This photo was taken in Lumsden, btw.
