挪威夏季北極生態探險之旅行前(Before Svalbard Photo Expedition summer 2016#2)


 經去年再度前往挪威的北極地區Svalbard巡訪及拍攝北極生態(特別是北極熊)後(詳細請參照本站:挪威北極熊尋覓歸來噗文),感覺仍無法感受到和北極野生動物的近距離觀察及拍攝,

After the cruise of the travel to Svalbard last year for the photography of the wildlife in the Polar area (see my pose of “Come back from Svalbard”), the feeling of how to get closer to watch the Polar landscape and wildlife is getting stronger,

Model外拍_Yun(Location Portrait)

 

此次外拍再次約了Model Yun來街拍,時間也延長為一天,拍攝的地點選在台北的信義區商圈,規劃路線由早上的誠品書店、台北市政府、世貿第3停車場,中午休息下午的信義公民會館及信義基隆路口陸橋等地,地點的安排及順序是希望能避開星期日的人潮。

  此次的打光安排使用3只Canon 580EX II為主燈,以環境光線為副燈,早上光線較強使用裸燈以搭配現場光的亮度,下午環境光線減弱,將主燈加一八角柔光罩,使光線較為柔和、平均並溶入四周光線,整個過程為增強都會街拍的效果,以低色溫約3400k設定相機,主燈加一Full CTO的濾片約5500k,使打在model上的光線保持原來的膚色,而不至因低色溫形成色偏。

This session is to use 3 Canon 580EX II as the main light and the ambient as the fill, I set the bare flash in the morning and use Westcott Rapid Box-26″Octa softbox in the afternoon for the fading ambient light, camera white balance 3400K and a full CTO filter for the flash as 5500K.

長時間曝光技巧及心得(Long exposure technique and how-to)

 

春夏交接之際在台灣東北角的海邊岩石上都佈滿厚厚的青苔,尤其是在淡水老梅地方的槽狀岩石海岸更甚,當漲退潮時槽內因海浪拍打岩石形成乳白的海水與岩石上翠綠的青苔間形生強烈視覺對比,前去拍攝時應先上網了解潮汐的時間,在漲退潮的1個小時內拍攝最佳。

In between the seasons of Spring and Summer, there is a landscape of the moss growing in the NE Taiwan coast, especially in a grooved rocks shore called “Lau Mei”, in between groove the milky water formed by the waves  turn out to be a strong contrast with the moss on the rocks during the Low/ high tides, it needs to know the timing of the tides every day before the tour to get a good shoot.

冰島冬季冰凍探險歸來(Come back from Iceland the frozen north)

前篇已說到此行前對冰島的一些印象及親身經歷,對冰島這個面積有3個台灣大人口只有30多萬的國家其實和台灣有非常多相似的地方,都是沒有豐富資源面積不大的地方,但是人民都是非常努力工作自力自強,但除此之外冰島卻有著我們沒有的美麗無比的景色,不論夏冬都呈現不同的風貌,冰島是歐洲大陸地形隆起的尖端部份,整個島是一座火山地貌,蘊藏豐富的地熱能源,因此鋁業成為冰島的重要外銷產業,冰島在不同季節都能呈現迷人的美麗景觀,特別是日出日落的大自然色彩和情境,經歷2008年的金融危機後這次再訪冰島,感受到他們已從困境中站起來,市面上到處可見的建築工事和擁擠的觀光客,在在顯示冰島已漸回復往日的繁華 。

The last blog on Jan.16,2016 has mentioned some impression and experience on the travel of Iceland, with this country which is 3 times bigger in area but the population are only 1.3% as Taiwan of 300 thousands, there are some similar faces with both of us, those are we don’t have enough resource and people work hard for their lives, but Iceland owns gorgeous landscape except, there are totally different faces of the landscape no matter in summer and winter in Iceland, Iceland is at the ridge of the European continent, the whole island is a volcano terrain, which rich in the underground heat, so the aluminum industry become one of their exports, there are unique view in the different seasons in Iceland specially the mood of colorful sunrise and sunset, this time I have seen the growth and come out of the financial dilemma since 2008 by busy constructions everywhere in Iceland, that I can see their past glory is coming back.
