The Rest of DLWS Redwoods

As promised and in no particular order, here are the rest of the pictures from DLWS Redwoods...

Redwoods_Mossy_Bark

Redwoods_Leaf

Redwoods_Bark

Redwoods_Inside_Tree

Redwoods_Trail

Redwoods_Mossy_Tree

Redwoods_Worker

The morning that this shot was taken, I think I had more pictures of this foot bridge than of the trees. Leave it to me to be surrounded by nature and end up taking pictures of the texture on this bridge instead!

Welcome!

I know many of you have found me through Scott Kelby's blog (thanks Scott!!) I just wanted to welcome you and let you know to check back again very soon as I will have the remainder of my images from DLWS Redwoods posted by the end of the morning.

I'm new at this whole blogging thing, so any feedback you have is greatly appreciated!

DLWS Redwoods - Day 1 PM

Trying to play a little catch-up here... We headed to the beach for our second shoot. There were some nice reflections and clouds to play around with.

Redwoods_Reflection
Captured with a Nikon D3 on Lexar CF Media, 14-24mm f/2.8

This one actually didn't see any post aside from dropping a black point onto it, and it's probably my favorite from the evening.


Redwoods_Rocks_Reflection
Captured with a Nikon D3 on Lexar CF Media, 14-24 mm f/2.8


Redwoods_Mountain
Captured with a Nikon D3 on Lexar CF Media, 14-24mm f/2.8

Turned the sky b&w, then deepened it and added some contrast overall.

DLWS Day 1 AM

I'm about a day behind the curve here, which isn't really a good way to start this off, but I'll get there! The rest of the DLWS staff pretty well has this blogging thing down by now, but being the newbie that I am, it might take me a little longer to get the hang of this.

That said, here are a few images from yesterday morning's shoot on the coast here at Crescent City, CA...

Redwoods_Dock


Started off around the dock area, where there was some nice fog. I really liked the graphic of the dock, so I worked that for a while and came up with this. The raw image was much more hazy, but I wanted to bring the boats out a little. So I took it into Capture NX and dropped a control point to add some selective contrast without completely taking the fog out. Desaturated it a bit, then added some vignetting with Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0.


Redwoods_Mechanical
Captured with a Nikon D3 on Lexar CF Media, 70-200mm f/2.8

After that I walked around for a while trying to find something else of interest and stumbled upon some old, broken down tractor trailers. This was on the back of one of them and caught my eye, so I snapped this. Did some tweaking in Photoshop, then threw the Bleach Bypass filter from Nik CEP 3.0 onto it.


Redwoods_Shipwreck
Captured with a Nikon D3 on Lexar CF Media, 14-24mm f/2.8

I turned around and saw this boat across the way, but couldn't get the shot I wanted (down low from the other side) because there was a fence and a bunch of other junk in the way (as you can see). So I kind of settled for this shot, but couldn't completely pass it up because it was just so odd sitting there on dry land. Did some Photoshop finessing and added the Glamour Glow (again, Nik CEP 3.0).


Redwoods_Ship
Captured with a Nikon D3 on Lexar CF Media, 14-24mm f/2.8

As I was walking back to the van with the rest of the DLWS staff, we wandered into this huge building where they were literally enlarging this already huge fishing ship. The guys working on this behemoth were very friendly, informative, and deservedly proud of their work.


Redwoods_Worker
Captured with a Nikon D3 on Lexar CF Media, 14-24mm f/2.8

As we wandered around in awe of the size of the boat, Joe's eye wandered toward the beautiful quality of light splashing along the wall. So, being the master he is, he grabbed one of the workers and asked him to stand along the wall for a few seconds. Obviously, I did a little Photoshop tweaking on this, a mixture of adjustment layers and high pass, to get the grungy look.

Chances are you found me through someone else's blog, but make sure you check out the rest of the DLWS staff's images as well:

I also used the Glamour Glow filter in Color Efex on this shot.

Welcome to bradmoore|blog

As you can see, this is my first entry. It's also very late as I type this and I have to wake up early to go shooting, so it's going to be short and sweet. But I did want to post some sort of explanation about what this whole thing is going to end up being.

In short, it will be a photo blog.

I want to not only share my own photography, but point you to other places and people who inspire me. I also want to share tips and tricks about shooting, assisting, and editing.

I'll post more details later on when I have more time and am more awake, but I just wanted to give you a quick run-down so you kind of know what to expect.

You can subscribe at the bottom of any post, or drop by again later. Thanks!
