As is often the case in these narrow alleys and walkways of ‘old blue’, the Blue City, Jodhpur, India, the fleeting light is brief, yet fortunate we were to quickly set-up, our model Natt, taking a position on a small step, in front of the red wooden gated entrance to a house, and I quickly moved back down the narrow walk, choosing to use the black iron railing of a nearby staircase as a foreground meandering line. And now, QUICK, what should my exposure be? EASY! This is exclusively, a manual camera setting of SUNNY 16, (A correct exposure of just subjects that are in sunlight will be correctly exposed when shot at F/16 and at the same shutter speed of the ISO, a 1/400 sec since I’m using 400 ISO.) And, anything that is in the shade will go dark if not black, which explains why, all of surrounds are under-exposed in this shot, again, due to my setting an exposure of Sunny 16, an exposure ‘formula’ that is as almost as old as photography itself. It was used for years, in the absence of light meters and as evidenced by this photo, a formula that is still applicable in the digital age! #somewheremagazine #weekly_feature #artofvisuals #photocommune #grikart_worlds #woman #earthfocus #phototips #imukung #blue #ig_respect #kings_third_age #people_infinity_ #kdpeoplegallery #ig_fotografdiyari #natgeoyourshot #ilovemyjob #youkeepshooting #nikonusa #nikonmea #pic #photography #reputation #passion #nikonnewyear #picoftheday #nikonownersmagazine #bryanfpetersonphotoworkshops

The Sequel Yesterday, one simple copper colored placemat, today, two of those same placements, configured into a somewhat cone-like, cylindrical shape, held together, fractionally, with the aid of Scotch tape, placed in Natt’s extended arms and hands, as she pokes her face through the narrower end, while my 18-300mm lens, at 18mm, goes ‘inside’ the wider opening of the cylindrical shape, relying solely on the single light source of the overcast light of mid-day as it easily passes through the nearby 16 foot by 32 foot window, filling the large foyer, where our shoot takes place, with an even ‘soft-box’ like kind of light. Stay tuned as my work/collaboration with the amazing model/mua, Nattakun Plaengdee, continues. We have moved on to the Blue City, Jodhpur, India where we are shooting for next several days.

I was filled with a combination of excitement and a justifiable sense of optimistic anticipation! I was just hours from meeting up with and working again with the beautiful model and make-up artist Nattakun Plaengdee and as always happens and for reasons that are perhaps buried deep in our shared primal history or ‘past lives’, Natt and I, with a shared sense of intense passion, would soon be creating some fresh and very exciting imagery together. Well, it didn’t take long! Just this morning, after Natt announced that she had bought and brought with her a couple of copper colored plastic place matts with the intent of using them somehow in one of our photo shoots, (yes, placemats meant for dinner plates) we were soon placing one against a window and as Natt leaned against it and as the sun came streaming through the numerous holes in the placemat, I shot a number of frames, joyfully! If you like this shot, oh my, you will be positively shocked by tomorrow’s post where we used TWO placemats in a manner that I am sure had never been thought of by anyone at the placemat factory. Until then, you keep shooting!

When was the last time you deliberately shot ‘horizontal lightning’? A few days ago, on a really clear night, myself and many other photographers were lined up atop the elevated walkway on the Kowloon side in preparation of shooting the Hong Kong skyline during the Blue 20. (Some call it the blue hour, but since its only a dusky blue color for about 20 minutes, I prefer to call it the Blue 20). On this night, at least in the immediate surrounds, I was the only choosing to shoot LONG exposures of 15-25 seconds. Most were shooting exposure times much faster, especially those who didn’t have tripods. I did suggest to the ‘stranger’ next to me who was using a tripod to consider shooting long exposures but his visual reply held a look that suggested that the ‘old man’ had just made a stupid suggestion;(my acute hearing thought he might be shooting exposures of around a 1/2 second) so I went back to shooting these long exposures WHEN the few slow moving lighted boats in the harbor would enter my frame and over the course of my 15-25 second exposures, the light trails from these boats would record as ‘horizontal lightning’, creating a dynamic in the overall composition that added some welcomed energy to an otherwise static skyline. You keep shooting!

His eyes held a gaze of excitement as he studied the thick and steady rainfall outside his coffee shop. He seemed to shout, in a voice normally reserved for a Circus Ringleader, “The first rain in five months and boy do we need it. The deserts will soon be blooming” Having now left the Tucson coffee shop, my students and I headed for The Barrio neighborhood and along the way we came upon an intersection where a soapy, sudsy white foam seemed to be rising up from the black asphalt. This white foam served up a healthy contrast to the black asphalt and reflecting in this wet surface was the bright red color of the overhead traffic light! Not only was the sudden rainfall bringing color to the desert but it was also doing a great job of ‘painting’ curvilinear strokes of color atop a black canvas of asphalt! Now it was I who was feeling excited by the rain and I too was bellowing like a Circus Ringleader“Wow, this a nice abstract! It’s time for the telephoto lens, 200mm-300mm, and don’t forget to stop the lens down to at least F/22 if not F/32. We will need sharpness from the surface of the road as well as sharpness deep into the reflection!” Perhaps most memorable about this morning back in 2015, was realizing, much later, 11-months later in fact, that that particular mornings shoot of ‘painted asphalt’ would become the cover of the Third Edition of my book, Learning To See Creatively. Thanks so much to all of you who have bought my books!

Despite the daily oppressive heat where temperatures can reach 120 degrees, despite the daily on-slaught of ‘dust devils’ that quickly send you running for cover, despite extended droughts, the Erbore people, a remote tribe of more than 1,000 strong, somehow, someway, continues to survive, in SE Ethiopia; a full two days walk to the nearby sleepy town of Weyto. The first thing you will notice about every individual of the Erbore tribe is the intensity of their eyes, eyes that look directly at you if not through you, a gaze that, despite feeling you’ve been laid bare, you feel a quiet confidence that allows you to freely exchange any fear for complete trust as you are quickly led by the grasp of a hand intent on introducing you to every member of the tribe. And if not just as quick, you also notice their love of colorful necklaces; they seem to embrace the wearing of these colorful necklaces with a kind of “the more the merrier” approach, a practice shared by the children as well. Piercings, tatoo’s, or scarifications, where where the skin is cut, burned or scraped, in the name of making yourself more desirable are common place in so many African tribes, but it seems with the Erbore people, their attempt at beautification begins and ends with adorning themselves with colorful necklaces, and of course metal bracelets, rings and ear rings too. Next years January 2020, Ethiopia workshop will include two nights of camping with the Erbore tribe! I can’t wait and if you are at all interested in joining me in this truly amazing part of the world DM for more information about my January, 2020, 10-Day Ethiopian workshop! #somewheremagazine #weekly_feature #artofvisuals #photocommune #grikart_worlds #earthfocus #ig_respect #kings_third_age #imukung #people_infinity #colors #kdpeoplegallery #ig_fotografdiyari #natgeoyourshot #ilovemyjob #phototips #youkeepshooting #nikonusa #nikonmea #pic #photography #reputation #passion #nikonnewyear #picoftheday #people #ethiopia #nikonownersmagazine #bryanfpetersonphotoworkshops #portraits

Of the nine years I lived in France, two of those years I awoke to this view of the river Saone and Old Lyon, from the small terrace of my 5th floor apt. at 46 Rue Quai St. Vincent, Lyon, France. In so many ways, I have lived a life of a very fortunate photographer.

Selective focus is a technique and a photography term that gets thrown around a lot, but often times without mentioning the all important need to USE MANUAL FOCUS! With spring hopefully just around the corner here in the northern hemisphere, you will have numerous chances to practice the art of selective focus, but again, any attempt to do selective focus in Auto-focus will actually become more of a test in how long you can avoid using out the f-word in frustration since the ‘brains’ of Auto-focus rarely understands what it is you want to focus on when you are working in a ‘crowded field’. In late April, along the many dikes of West Friesland Holland, (photo #2 ), buttercups abound, in contrast to the still naked trees whose leaves will not be forthcoming for another month. From down low, lying amongst the bright yellow flowers, with my aperture at wide-open, (F/4 in this instance), and after focusing on the tree, I simply move about, left, right, up, down until I feel my frame is filled enough with a foreground of out of focus buttercups, in contrast to the in-focus tree, resulting in the image you see here. This idea is NOT limited to yellow flowers and ‘naked’ trees, nor is it limited to the season of spring. Think, think think, let your imagination run free!

Like most artists with a camera, chances are quite good that you are looking for answers, inspiration, ideas and motivation in your continued pursuit of photographic excellence. Consider getting involved in the You Keep Shooting Photo Community. Enjoy all of the inspiring and informative video content from this past January, February and even March for FREE! To learn more, go to the link, You Keep Shooting, in my bio. In the meantime, and in response to a question I got from a follower, I wanted to share with you, at least one very quick way to make a compelling portrait, arguably even more compelling by making it ‘gritty’. This first portrait of a local farmer, enjoying a cornhusk/tobacco leaf smoke, near Bagan, Myanmar IS no doubt gritty, especially when compared to the second image, the ‘untouched’ original. And how hard was it to make this first image full of grit? In Adobe Camera Raw, I merely moved the CLARITY slider to the right, stopping at +55, give or take, and voila, gritty it became.

In much the same way the sculpture gazes at the rock before them, with chisel and hammer at the ready, the gifted and extremely talented make-up artist/model ‘Natt’, finds herself staring in the mirror, staring not at a blank canvas, but rather at the as yet unplanted terrain of her sculpted face. Sometimes, only minutes pass, other times, hours, but it is always worth the wait. I sit back with both wonder and amazement, all the while watching with great awe and excitement, this thing, practiced by Natt, this thing more commonly referred to as the creative process. Finally, it’s my ‘turn’ yet who am I kidding? The ART sits before me, haunting, looking into my lens. My role in this is so minimal. Move a light here or there, and then attempt to create a mood with that light by fiddling with my camera’s controls, yet still intensely satisfying. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

Could not tell you what all the celebration was about, but I was certainly elated to come upon this couple appearing to be dancing in celebration of..?...on a pedestrian bridge that crosses the Saone River in the city of Lyon France. Because my meter reading is solely for the bright low-angled late afternoon light falling on the buildings, the bridge and dancing couple record as a silhouette since both are in open shade.

Ahhhhh, the power of red! An otherwise monochromatic ‘sentence’ ends with an exclamation point, a red exclamation point no less! When setting your camera’s meter reading for snow scene’s, make sure you end up at a one stop over-exposure, (+1) as this will always get you WHITE snow, instead of the more familiar and not welcomed dark grey snow. From three stories up, on an outside terrace, the elevated view reveals a graphic scene comprised almost exclusively of lines! Keep an eye out for elevators and stairwells as one or both both might lead you to ‘aerial’ opportunities-“drone with your feet!” #somewheremagazine #weekly_feature #artofvisuals #snow #winter #photocommune #grikart_worlds #earthfocus #ig_respect #cityscape #ig_fotografdiyari #natgeoyourshot #ilovemyjob #phototips #youkeepshooting #nikonusa #nikonmea #pic #photography #reputation #passion #nikonnewyear #picoftheday #red #nikonownersmagazine #bryanfpetersonphotoworkshops #portraits

Arguably, the people of India as well as the landscapes and cityscapes, are the most colorful in the world, and some days, some mornings, some very brief morning minutes, no, make that brief seconds on this morning, you cross paths with one colorful individual, at the perfect intersection of light and shadow and no matter what happens the rest of that day, you recognize ‘that’ feeling, that feeling that will stay with you throughout the day, that welling up inside you of both elation and gratification, that feeling of LUCK, that you were just so damn lucky to be at the right place at the right time, with camera and lens, exchanging glances.

Rainbow Lorikeets, WOW, what colorful birds they truly are and very deserving of the word rainbow! At Singapore’s Jurong Bird Park the Lorikeets are quite plentiful in one specific large netted enclosure and where the tourists are free to roam on elevated walkways that meander through the rain forest habitat. Throughout the day, visitors are encouraged to offer up small one ounce size cups of a sweet nectar to the lovebirds and other colorful parrots within the netted enclosure, cups of nectar that when held out at a moderate arms length will quickly guarantee an arm covered in ‘rainbows’! Perhaps because it was late in the day, or I merely was lucky, but I came upon two lethargic Lorikeets (too much nectar/sugar?) and I was quick to take advantage of their sedated state and as is true in particular when shooting ‘closeups’ “you can always get even closer, assuming you have a macro lens, AND extension tubes and/or a closeup filter such as the Canon 500D which can be used on any lens, but most often added to the tele-zoom lenses. The first image you see IS the closest image I took, and the second image is that taken by a student of mine who was initially quite elated but once I shared with her what was still possible by focusing even closer, she was quick to realize that she had became satisfied too easy and had not yet fully worked the subject. We are all guilty of this at times, and if there was a single mantra that does cover a lot of photographic ground it would be this, “work it, work it, work it!” And in particular always be mindful, that in the world of closeup photography, you can always get closer still which in turn can reveal a number of welcomed and surprising compositions. Have a colorful day and you keep working it and you keep shooting!

Rarely will anyone argue with the overall consensus that “mid-day light is the worst!” , yet as further proof that ‘rules’ can in fact stifle a shooting opportunity, a MID-DAY shooting opportunity I might add. She was one of a handful of the unsung hero’s at our hotel in Jinka, making certain we would be sleeping that evening on top of as well as under clean sheets and where else but under the HOT mid-day sun well the sheets be able to dry in time for that evenings slumber? From a nearby elevated position (drone with your feet when possible), I was able to shoot down from above, revealing the pattern of hanging bed sheets, a pattern deliberately used as ‘background vocalists’ who in turn call attention to the ‘lead singer’, the cleaning woman, dressed in a contrasting yellow dress no less! Are we having fun or what?! With the aid of my off camera flash mounted on a portable light stand to my left, housed inside a Lastolite Softbox, attached to a PW remote trigger, the ‘fill’ light from the flash took care of the normally harsh mid-day shadows on her face.

As artists, we are aware of our inner voice that is constantly prodding us to do more, to push past the self-imposed boundaries, boundaries that keep us ‘safe’ yet behind a stifling fence. If we are intent on reaching the as yet undiscovered ‘creative territories’, the fence has got to come down! Only then are we free to explore all of the “crazy”, “whacky”, “stupid”, “lame” and “ridiculous” as well as “brilliant” and “amazing” ideas that were born out of asking yourself, “What if...” “What if I purchased a small 12X18 piece of 3/8” plexiglass from the hardware store, then packed it in my luggage, remove it once I arrive in Venice, take it with me at dawn the next morning, and with the aid of a super clamp, attach it to the extended column of a small light-stand, spraying the plexiglass with water to create the rain effect and then compose the ‘standard’ image from San Marco of the Gondolas and the distant Church of San Giorgio Maggiore?” Obviously this idea is NOT limited to Venice or cities for that matter. That kind of thinking will find you back inside the fence! So, with pencil and paper at the ready, start writing down, NOW, as many other locations/subjects you can think of, where you could use ‘rain covered plexiglass’? You keep shooting!

When one looks for opportunities to shoot ‘motion-filled’ subjects, waterfalls, ocean surf and city traffic at dusk often come to mind, but the reality is, motion is everywhere, including the spray of sparks falling from the ceiling as the welder attaches numerous metal plates. Just like the volume of the water that makes up a waterfall, the volume/spray of sparks will also dictate the spread and length of the sparks. I shot this welder on a job in Istanbul, several years ago and the ‘luxury’ of being on assignment allowed me the opportunity to shoot multiple takes as the welder moved from one spot to the next. Just like the sun’s brightness, the bright sparks will over-power the light meter resulting in severe under-exposures, so one needs to set the camera in MANUAL MODE to a +2 over-exposure once the sparks start flying, BUT before you get ahead of yourself, you need to first choose a low ISO, i.e. 100-200, then set the shutter speed to a 1/4 second and then as the sparks start flying, adjust the aperture until your meter indicates a two-stop over-exposure AND with the camera on tripod, start firing away! If you exposed correctly, you will record more than just a motion-filled image. In fact you just might record an ‘E-motion’ filled image!

I have photographed my share of forests and some felt almost perfect, but not until last week, near Inle Lake, Myanmar did I feel I had finally reached ‘perfection!’ This is a managed forest of trees that will be eventually harvested for pulp/paper, but on this day it was meant to be harvested with a camera and shot at F/22, because I wanted to record a subtle starburst as my shifting point of view allowed a piece of the sun’s light to ‘burst’ from behind one of the trees. When shooting a backlit scene such as this and with the super wide angle lens, (the Nikkor 14-24mm and D850 at 14mm in this case) it is important to set your exposure to +1 and again move just enough to allow only a sliver of bright sunlight to peak around a tree when you take the shot. Depending on the density of the forested scene will determine how much additional exposure adjustments you do in post i.e. using the Highlight and Shadow Sliders in Camera Raw and/or Lightroom. I use Camera Raw and in this case I moved the Shadow slider to about 20, thus allowing some additional detail to come through. somewheremagazine #weekly_feature #artofvisuals #photocommune #grikart_worlds #earthfocus #ig_respect #nature #forest #ig_fotografdiyari #natgeoyourshot #imukung #ilovemyjob #phototips #youkeepshooting #nikonusa #nikonmea #pic #photography #reputation #passion #nikonnewyear #picoftheday #trees #nikonownersmagazine #bryanfpetersonphotoworkshops
