Shot near Jasper, Canada, in May 2014. Those of you interested in the post-processing performed on this image can check out the short video below. Feedback is welcome! And if it’s positive, I’ll continue doing this for future photos. I suggest watching in 1080p and fullscreen.
Moose Lake in British Columbia, Canada. This is a heavily processed shot. From my point of view, the goal in landscape photography is not necessarily to imitate the natural look of the scene, or what the eyes see. I sometimes try to augment the scene into a visually stunning yet still somehow believable image. I admit the balance is pretty difficult to find, and that this image may look thoroughly fake to you!
Here are the post-processing steps taken on this photo, in time-lapse form:
The W.A.C Bennet Library in SFU’s Burnaby campus. For those of you interested in the technical aspects, this is a blend of 6 exposures; five of them for the foreground and to diminish the overexposure from the lights in the walkway, and one for the stars.
