在新西兰南部峡湾地带有个漂亮的小镇“Te Anau”。前往米尔福德峡湾（Milford Sound ）和神奇湾（Doubtful Sound），这里是个不错的驻足之处。 这里也是摄影圣地。开车用不了多久，便有无限的风景。我起了个大早开车前往神奇湾，在后视镜里看到了这一幕

A Week of HDR Tips!
|I’ve got a special thing-thing for you this week! A special week of HDR tips! Rick Sammon and I are doing this thing together for fun, and I hope it helps give you some good ideas to take your art in new directions.
Go see HDR Tip #1, along with links over to Rick’s blog as well!
This first tip is entitled, “Create Your Own Future”.
Daily Photo – A Gentle Stream Through New Zealand
All this news out of New Zealand is still upsetting. I’ve got a lot of contacts and friends down there… and I know it’s a rough time. Not much I can do… feel a little useless… so about the best I can do is post some serene and gentle photos of the nicer side of nature. I hope all my friends down there find it gets a little easier as the days move forward.
Video from The Tech Guy
We have some fun video from the appearance on Leo Laporte‘s The Tech Guy yesterday. When I was out at Leo’s cottage a few weeks ago, he brought up the idea of doing a photography podcast on his network. I gave him the thumbs up and said I thought it sounded like a good idea! He said he wanted to put it together with me, Lisa Bettany, and Ray Maxwell. If you want to hear the latest in those discussions, fast-forward to the 12:30 mark.
And, after the interview, I forgot I was still on Skype! So, he caught me carrying my computer back to the office… but I did capture some more behind-the-scenes stuff that you may enjoy…hehe. You may enjoy seeing what happens during the commercial breaks of these shows… !
If you want to subscribe to more of Leo’s podcasts, just visit his main TWIT site. He has everything from the hit weekly show This Week in Tech that has John Dvorak as a regular to my fellow Austinite Brian Brushwood on NSFW. They have it all there!
Daily Photo – The Giant Sun Sinks into the Tasman Sea
Despite what I said in the podcast, sometimes you do want to go beyond +2 to -2 ! I can’t go through every caveat in those short soundbytes… but this exemplifies such a case. In this photo of the sunset over the Tasman Sea, off the coast of New Zealand, I did take 7 exposures form +3 to -3. Whenever you aim the camera right into the sun, you need to expose even more range than normal.
I am going back to New Zealand for about a month in October. It will be a blast! This time, I’ll be spending most of my time on the South Island, exploring around… I hope to bring back more wonderful finds from the wild for you!
Behind-the-Scenes in New Zealand
I recently edited together and posted this scene from the south island of NZ, when I was out in this beautiful meadow at sunset. I was using a 70-200mm lens, so I used this to add to my Nikon 70-200 Review.
If you’d also like to see the resulting photo, check out the Video on the Valley of Abundance page.
Daily Photo – Manhattan Living
When I was in New York City, I had the good fortune to spend time with Steve Simon. We had breakfast at this great little French place and then went around to do a bit of shooting. We stopped at his place and went up to the roof. Peering over the side, I saw this and thought it was kinda nice… so I grabbed a quick one.
Be sure to visit Steve’s site on the link above. He has amazing work and I am sure you will get a kick out of it!
Art Show in Austin
I arrived a little late to the show, and the girl that clicked us in said there were over 200 people there! Crazy! But it was really awesome to see this World’s Largest High Resolution Tiled Wall display. I enjoyed meeting a bunch of new people, seeing other artists, and checking out the whole scene.
A gentleman there named David Ingram (Dingatx on Flickr) grabbed this photo below to give you some idea of the scene.
Daily Photo – The Spray of the Tasman Sea
This was an incredibly difficult photo to achieve!
I did this one live, in front of my HDR Workshop in Tokyo. I like to tackle new photos in front of people so they can see how I struggle through the HDR process. It’s never easy… and I like to talk out loud and let people know my thinking process. I think this is a very interesting way to give a live tutorial, rather than go by some automated and predictable script. The way you think about all the unexpected problems, dodge and roll with the issues, and synthesize various tools to accomplish an end goal is an interesting process.
You’ll also see this on the upcoming HDR DVD. One night after an outing, I came back to process some brand new photos, and they all got to see me struggle through a few pieces to come up a satisfying work.
This was shot very recently when I was down on the extremely frigid coast of the Tasman Sea, on the southwest edge of New Zealand. With a wide-angle lens, you need to get in really close to this icy cold spray to get the splashes just right… I was completely soaked after this, and it felt (and smelled!) like I had just finished a multi-week crab hunt in the arctic!
Flashback Photo – I’ve Reached the End of the World
You can see the edge of this one from the giant wall display above… This one was also taken not too far from Antarctica…but on the opposite side of the globe down near the southern tip of Argentina and Chile. The huge display allowed my son and I to walk up very close to it… there is a little iceberg there, and he saw the two rocks. He asked me what they were, and I told him that I threw them out there while waiting around!
