Haida Picture Appreciation | May


South Perth Sunset

I discovered this composition just south of the Perth city on a dreary overcast day almost 2 years ago and vowed I would come back when conditions were better. It took me a few attempts, but I finally got the spectacular colors I had hoped for with the Australian autumn sky set aflame by the amber and purple sunset.

In January 2020, I was invited to Amsterdam to take photos around the Amsterdam Area by the @Iamsterdam. Broek in Waterland and Vondel Park are great places to take long exposure photos with my filters. And the weather was cloudy and rainy a bit. These places look peaceful and calm to me then I don’t want to miss it. Then I took this beautiful small village photos.

Black Beach

That morning in Vík, Iceland, I scaled so many huge rocks to get to the other side of the famous black beach. And, successfully I got far away from the crowd. Here I saw a fresh new look of Vík’s rocks, the sunrise was just hidden behind the huge rocks, exuding the charming glow. It is lucky that I carried the Haida filters with me and got this smoothy sea wave capture by them.

Changing World
This dramatic seascape long-exposure scenery was captured with a Haida filter at the famous and stunning Camel Rock in Bermagui, New South Wales, Australia.
It’s a beautiful thing if you are able to transmit the atmosphere of your location to others with your images. Enjoy the moment as much as possible, become a part of the scene and the places you are visiting, immerse yourself in the location, and just work with what mother nature is giving you. With a little bit of help from a great Haida filter, you too can deliver a stronger impact from your landscapes.

Another Place

It was a spectacular evening so we decided to spend the rest of the day at Bermagui photographing the Horsehead Rock. After I found my favorite composition, I stayed there and kept enjoying the view. The extraordinary light was offering a colorful display and was changing the sky from bright and quiet to dark and a bit stormy. I started to analyze how my perception of nature has changed over the years and how my personal development as a landscape photographer has evolved. This continuous landscape metamorphosis as seen in the photo is very similar to my personal transformation in the way I create my landscape photography. Never static and always evolving...

Here's a shot of my hometown Toronto during a fiery sunset last summer. This is a blend of two images. One 1/30 of a second exposure for the sky/city and another 20-second exposure for the water. I used the Haida Red-Diamond 10 stop ND to create a smooth glassy look on the water.
