Seeing great photography, I mean off-the-chart great photographs makes want to kick myself for not shooting every day! Something I noticed is there is a LOT of exciting experimental photographs in this collection. Some techniques I recognized. Some I can figure out, maybe. Others shots simply blow.Me. Away!
"The name of the game in wildlife photography—whether you’re trying to capture a herd of elephants on the Serengeti Plains or squirrels in your backyard—is patience. Wild animals are going to do what they’re going to do."
Mark: I'm always looking for different, smart, and inspirational sites showing creativity and expression. Looks like the curator of this site does as well.
"I have become a pop-culture junkie and a seeker of anything that is different, creative, energizing, but smart. We live in a world where so much is possible and the level of creativity is so high. We also have the means to share our findings with the world. So I am sharing."
For many photographers a sunny day at noon is just a nightmare, the light is hard, there are no clouds, skies look uninteresting, it seems nothing can be done. It's a good time to use an infrared filter and try to see what we can do with it.
An infrared filter will block most (but not all) of the visible light in the scene letting infrared light pass thru. As the cameras have an IR blocking filter you will need longer exposure times and a tripod, depending on how dark your filter is exposure can go from 20 seconds to several minutes!
When you shoot with the infrared filter foliage becomes whitish, water and skies can look black and everything looks different, it’s a great tool to explore another world around you.
