You may have heard Morten Rustad’s name being bandied about alongside words like ‘time-lapse’, ‘Norway’ and ‘that’s-so-fricken-cool’.

The silhouette of a Joshua tree in Hidden Valley. The orange glow is the result of light pollution from cities to the south.Desert habitats are ecological peculiarities. They are harsh environments, typically with sand and rock instead of rich soil and running water. Their evaporation rates tend to exceed precipitation rates. And even though desert habitats can harbor a surprising diversity of life, their harsh conditions do not favor abundance.

Throughout history, paintings have undergone a distinct revolution. When two-dimensional paintings were no longer popular, artists had figured out different ways to allow the third dimension to impact the painting. We call that third dimension “perspective,” and it’s just as important in photography as in painting.photo by Dominik Brygier The use of perspective can add an extra sense of depth to your images. But, it’s ineffective unless you define a horizon. The horizon line is the space where everything you see gets so small that... READ MORE

Photographing stars and the night sky is completely different than photographing during regular daylight or even the Golden Hour. Most of the techniques and guidelines you’ve learned to follow for “standard” landscape photography don’t apply for nighttime photography, which makes it a hard genre to enter when you’re new to photography – even more experienced daytime photographers can feel out of place during the night. However, when you’re first able to capture images of the stars, the chances are that you’ll get hooked!After reading this... READ MORE

I’m not talking about backing up your photos (that’s a completely a separate topic), I’m talking about backing up your database of edits and organization (known as your Lightroom catalog). Here’s why backing up your catalog is so important:One day, you could start Lightroom just like usual, but get a warning message that your catalog is corrupt (see below):Or worse, you might just get a dialog that says “This catalog could not be opened due to an unexpected error” and your only choices will be...

A new kind of Vignette – A Gradient Vignette I have always used Adobe Camera Raw to create my vignettes, but recently I have been using a Gradient Vignette technique that I love.  The traditional vignette in ACR or Lightroom is so restricting.  Surely you can adjust the size, feather, intensity, and roundness.  However, you can’t […]The post How to Make a Gradient Vignette in Photoshop – Video appeared first on f64 Academy....

Understanding these rules will help you composite even when you’re breaking them!Using these rules will give you a good composition, but as an artist what you’re after is great composition.At the end of the day, composition...

Author’s Note: This article is specifically about landscape photography. While I do believe high dynamic range (HDR) is a much-needed feature in many realms of photography, I wrote this article as a devil’s advocate, hoping that you'll think more about what you know about light and whether working with narrow dynamic range systems is good for our collective learning and development as photographers.Every once in a while, I get into a conversation with someone who wants to shoot landscape images with high latitude film or is...

I highly recommend a 5-in-1 reflector as a tool for helping you get terrific light under many circumstances. It should be the first lighting tool you buy, and you should learn to master it before buying more lighting. The good news is that a 5-in-1 reflector is relatively cheap.

It’s a colorful world we live in, and that’s a beautiful thing. But sometimes as photographers, we find our images have gone a little sideways when we’ve captured the kaleidoscope of color the world has set in front of us. Colors can reflect where we don’t want them and bounce around to overpower a scene. There are things we can do to counteract this effect in the field and in post processing, though. Let’s go over a few.ADD MORE LIGHTSometimes, colored lighting is the look... READ MORE
