Marketed as the "Smart Camera Assistant", the relatively new Arsenal remote camera controller is an interesting little device. It is the brainchild of software developer and amateur landscape photographer Ryan Stout.
We had a great expedition to Bandon, Oregon (and points nearby) with a group of fellow photographers in early August. The weather was mostly overcast, which is expected this time of year, and custom made for some long exposures.
There are two types of image stacking methods that are popular today. "Focus stacking" is used to extend the depth of field. Whereas "exposure stacking" can be used to extend the apparent exposure time. This post is intended to be a quick introduction to the latter.
In April 2017 we led an expedition to Knights Ferry, California. Founded in 1849, Knights Ferry features ruins of the Tulloch Flour Mill and the longest covered bridge west of the Mississippi. It is located just off of highway 120/108 about 40 miles east of Modesto on the Stanislaus River.
Happy to share with you an interview with Jo Ann and me that was published yesterday at "Exhibitions Without Walls". We were surprised and honored to have been asked for the interview by Ed Wedman of EWW last month. The link below is the cover page.
This image of Weston Beach at Point Lobos is from our Still Motion Abstract Series. The goal here was to create an abstract image yet still capture the feel of the surf, colors and textures of this wonderful morning on the California Coast.
Because we plan to travel to many areas where cell phone coverage will be limited or nonexistent we have added a Delorme InReach Explorer satellite emergency communicator to our new Toyota 4Runner Trail that we've fondly named "Black Beauty". With it, we now have two-way satellite communications at all times.
We are please to announce the Aiello Studios' Photographic Expeditionary Group and you are invited to participate! The expeditions will essentially be meet-ups at various locations throughout the West that we wish to photograph. The concept is very simple.
