If you’ve ever questioned the capabilities of the Nikon D7000, then I encourage you to see this video that Corey Rich recently produced in the extreme Alaskan wilderness. His documentary is a testament to hard work, great vision, and more hard work! Just watching the video made me tired.

Canoes in the Chugach

Posted September 30th, 2009 by   |  Photography, Software, Travel  |  Permalink

Alaska is such a photographic paradise, that it is hard to stop posting images from this great land. It seems like everywhere you turn there is a fantastic juxtaposition between mankind and nature at its grandest.

These canoes were pulled up on the beach at Spencer Lake, which is just below the Spencer Glacier in the Chugach National Forest. We were preparing to go out on some rubber rafts to explore the ice bergs and glacier when I noticed these two lonely canoes over to the side. They had a certain look about them that I just had to photograph.

Glacier photos from Spencer Lake, Alaska

Posted September 24th, 2009 by   |  Photography, Travel  |  Permalink

On the last day of our photo adventure to Denali National Park, we took a train ride to Spencer Lake for a boat trip along the Spencer Glacier. Our guides paddled our intrepid crew of photographers about a mile up the lake, to the terminus of the Spencer Glacier. All along the way we were able to paddle next to ice bergs that had recently calved from the glacier. The deep blue color of the ice was stunning and the sheer immensity of the glacier was amazing.

After enjoying our Spencer Glacier excursion, we headed back to Anchorage on the Alaska Railroad . Along the way, we enjoyed more stunning views of the Alaska Range and of Mt. McKinley.

Some HDR from Denali NP

Posted September 18th, 2009 by   |  Photography, Software, Travel  |  Permalink

Last week’s trip to Denali NP presented some high contrast lighting to deal with. One of the “downsides” of having good weather in a place like Denali is that your camera isn’t able to capture all the detail from the shadows while also capturing detail from the clouds and sky.

To overcome this issue with the camera, I took a series of exposures at different brightnesses and then ran them through software called Photomatix Pro. After compressing the tones, I brought them into Photoshop for a little more burning/dodging.

Had a fun day yesterday in Denali NP. We were able to photograph the mountain and see how massive it is. The weather up here has been amazing and our group was walking around in t-shirts all day long.

We are headed back into the park today for more fall color, wildlife and nature photography.

The weather was absolutely stunning this morning coming into Anchorage, Alaska. Beautiful blue sky. Crystal clear air. Wow.

Hopefully, the weather holds out for a few days as we make our trek up to Denali NP.

I’ve just returned from a week long trip to Alaska where I worked with a team at a Youth Camp in Unalakleet. I’ll be writing up a full report in this month’s newsletter. Until then, here are a few shots of Alaska from the air to hold you over.
