Mount Moran Sunset – Grand Teton National Park, Instagram post date: 04-21-2017

Grand Teton National Park, Instagram post date:

Photo taken at: Grand Teton National Park

Photo Caption: I am off to one of my favorite National Parks this weekend – @grandtetonnps – where this was photographed a couple years ago in the fall. This will be the earliest in the year I have had the chance to get there – excited to see the Teton range covered in snow!!
.
Follow along on Instagram this weekend – I will be giving a behind-the-scenes look via the Stories, and might even do a live session or 2 if you are all up for it! 😃 .
I will be headed out there with my girlfriend and fine art painter @whitneyhallart as she looks for references for her wildlife paintings, and I am sure she will do some postings here on IG this weekend too!
.
As for this photo posted here, I was going for a mostly silhouette look, and love how the blue and yellow colors play off each other. This was at sunset looking at Mt. Moran.
.
The RAW file was processed fully in #Luminar by @macphun

Kinishiba Ruins – Whiteriver, Arizona, Instagram post date: 04-17-2017

Whiteriver, Arizona, Instagram post date:

Photo taken at: Whiteriver, Arizona

Photo Caption: This scene was photographed at the Kinishiba Ruins in Whiteriver, Arizona almost 7 years ago. At the time, I was summering in Pinetop, Arizona which is not too far from here.
.
Over the years I have tried processing this photo in different programs trying to get something I liked but was always unsuccessful. Even for me, some photos are simply not easy to develop and this was one of them. It was photographed with great light, but I could never make the photo “come alive”.
.
While working on a project for @macphun I took yet another look at this image using their program #luminar and finally was able to achieve a feeling in this photo that I was very pleased with and that I was looking for all along. It might have taken 7 years, but I don’t mind. .
The lesson here is to not give up on photos you are struggling with. It may take a few years, but experiment with different programs and take your time. Eventually you may get just the look from your photo that you were hoping for.
.
Has this ever happened with you and your photos?

Grazing Horse at Grand Teton National Park, Instagram post date: 04-11-2017

Grand Teton National Park, Instagram post date:

Photo taken at: Grand Teton National Park

Photo Caption: With storm clouds building above the Teton range at @grandtetonnps in the afternoon, I was able to photograph this grazing horse with some wonderful backlight with the sun shining through an opening in the clouds. The sun was only lighting up the field, which provided me with some great color contrast to work with.

Processed in Luminar from Macphun.

Mount Moran – Grand Teton National Park, Instagram post date: 04-03-2017

Grand Teton National Park, Instagram post date:

Photo taken at: Grand Teton National Park

Photo Caption: One of the reasons why I love photographing at @grandtetonnps is the absolutely incredible light that can happen there!
.
This was photographed this past fall during my annual fall foliage photo workshop there in the late afternoon as the sun was filtering behind a rain shower that was happening in front of Mt. Moran.
.
I photographed this from the popular Mt. Moran overlook using my 150-600mm lens handheld. I used Capture One Pro from @phaseonephoto to process the RAW file, then converted it to black and white and further enhanced it in Luminar from @macphun
.
The original photo had almost no color in it, as I photographed it with careful metering so as to not lose any highlight detail in the rain. This caused the foreground to become a silhouette. Seeing that there was almost no color due to the silhouette and grey clouds, it was an easy decision to process this as a black and white.
