http://ift.tt/1pPDAkt http://ift.tt/1j9IPX1 I am really happy to be getting back out with the camera more. I love the things that it brings, the experiences and the moments and this was one of them. We were completely alone, in a field in country NSW and it was a glorious afternoon. The sun was setting and throwing a magnificent light across the open plains in front of us and with a few drinks in hand we got to work with the camera's and took it all in. I'm still at a loss as to why exactly this location was chosen for the filming of the barn scene in Superman Returns but on that afternoon, in good company with that warm autumn setting sun I wasn't complaining. As always, thanks for looking!

A seed from a dandelion was hanging off a blade of grass towards the warm twilight sky.
This is 5 exposures blended together using my advanced Photoshop tonality control and multiple exposure blending techniques. I produced a video detailing these techniques, it's available here: www.zschnepf.com Last weekend I was co-teaching a workshop in the Gorge with fellow Photo Cascadia member and good friend David Cobb. We had a great group as usual. We were under a pretty cool, unstable weather pattern with lots of wind and rain, but it set us up for some dramatic conditions. We saw waterfalls, rainbows, paragliders, wildflower fields, incredible gorge views, and some spectacular light. This was our last morning. While I was helping some students set up in some foreground flowers I noticed this scene unfolding. I stepped to the edge of the cliff and fired off a quick bracket series and went back to helping some students. It was a great weekend of photography and adventure. Thanks for commenting!

The other weekend I went on a bit of a whirlwind tour with my buddy Eric - lots of driving and hiking with very little sleeping. Despite our jam-packed itinerary, I had initially thought of the Mesquite Dunes as my primary destination. I planned to walk around for several hours before sunset to find a solid comp, and I even rented a lens for the weekend specifically to shoot the dunes. I knew it was going to be hot down there, but we started out that morning hiking for hours in the freezing cold at 12,000 feet, so some hopeful yet benighted part of me was actually looking forward to the warmer air on the valley floor. It wasn't long after descending into Stovepipe Wells that we found ourselves sitting under the gas station awning, seeking relief in a cold hefeweizen and thinking, "Why the heck are we down here right now?" I'm not built for heat, and I wasn't about to trudge through the sand in 100 degrees for two hours until the sun went down. We decided to at least cruise over to the parking lot just to check out the dunes before reevaluating our plan to camp in the area. They weren't nearly as tracked-out as they get in the winter, but the heat still didn't deter a few crazy people from venturing out into the vast expanse of sand. Thankfully I had envisioned people in my photo, so I walked about 50 yards from the car, fired a few quick shots and decided to call it at that. This shot could have probably benefited from waiting another half hour for the light to change while I found a better comp. We figured it best to use the remaining daylight to hoof it back up to the Alabama Hills, where sunrise opportunities and reasonable temperatures awaited. Being that I had barely managed to nab four hours of sleep in the two days prior, waiting and driving at night would have been just about as silly as hiking through the scorching desert. Nonetheless, I'm still happy to get a half-way decent shot out of the stop that was even remotely close to what I originally had in mind! http://ift.tt/1hhTWKb

This is a gold-rated dark sky reserve, in recognition of the quality of the almost light pollution-free skies of the Mackenzie Basin in New Zealand.

Always better on black! I trekked out to Rodeo Beach with my buddies Griffin Moon and Toby Harriman. The sunset was really beautiful skimming the ice plants. There was an endless amount of poison oak to dodge, but hey it was worth it. Thanks for checkin it out guys!
I was fortunate recently to take a post-processing workshop from one of my favorite landscape photographers, David Thompson. It was an excellent and productive experience. We went over things like workflow, color, contrast, sharpening and luminosity masks. My eyes were opened to a lot of things I had been struggling with. We also talked a lot about motivations, originality and improving artistically. Thinking critically about what and where I want to shoot and having creative vision. David is a very talented shooter and one of the coolest and most down to earth guys you’ll ever meet...Check him out at: http://ift.tt/15WLrlv This shot is from sunrise on Sunday in the Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, California. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are all having a great week. All the best, Paul
It´s showtime... unfortunately only once a year...
Perhaps one of the easiest places to shoot.. wait for a little good light, bolt yourself to the ground so as to avoid being blown over the edge, cover the lens with a hood to avoid water (rain) damage, drive down a small road at night after the shoot and spend too much time gawping at the landscape and forgetting to shoot!!!
Mount Adams was always covered in clouds when I visited this scene in prior years, but on a crisp fall day in 2009 nature gave the gift.

I missed a beautiful sunset but still managed a capture i was happy with
During a visit to the Irish land I managed to find some time to go to the open air. While waiting for the sunset waited up just such a scene on the north coast of Ireland.
Autumn in the Western Cape just never dissapoints! Like these brilliant reflections captured as the water flows down to the sea down at Romansbay just as the last colour of the day is about to disappear. I just love my hometown!!

The sea was boiling around Mahon Pool in Maroubra on this very moody morning. Perfect for some long exposure photography. I really like this location at high tide and a nice swell. A couple of brave swimmers enjoyed their morning swim as the waves were splashing over the pool wall.

Late evening over looking Bwlch (mountain pass in the Welsh language) Farm just above Aberdyfi, Wales. A cloudy evening broke into a deep sunset just as the sun moved between the cloud layers, a couple of minutes later the sun was gone and the hillside disappeared again into the thick fog and rain.
