Airborne Saddle Bronc – Bozeman, Montana, Instagram post date: 05-09-2017

Photo taken at: Bozeman, Montana

Photo Caption: A saddle bronc continues to get airborne after it had dumped it’s rider at a roundup in Bozeman, Montana.
.
A shutter speed of 1/3200s completely froze all of the action for me, manually focused with my @sigmaphoto 150-600mm lens on my Sony a7R camera. .
I used Luminar from @macphun to create the styling for this photo.

Blue Hour Sunrise at Grand Teton National Park, Instagram post date: 04-29-2017

 

Photo taken at: Grand Teton National Park

Photo Caption: Blue hour sunrise at @grandtetonnps
.
I photographed this last weekend during the blue hour just before sunrise. It was so nice and peaceful watching the light on the snow covered Tetons get brighter and brighter. I barely noticed the below-freezing temps!
.
This was photographed using a split neutral density filter from @formatthitech to balance the exposure of the brighter mountains with the darker foreground. .
I processed the RAW file first in Capture One Pro, then used Luminar from @macphun to further stylize the photo.

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?
