In Landschaften zwischen Himmel und Erde porträtiert er Natur rund um den Globus und schafft ein Werk, das uns Seite für Seite ins Staunen versetzt.

Photographing the 4th Dimension: TIME

 

Friend and fellow blogger Jim Goldstein has a new book (eBook) out that you should know about. We have featured a link on the side of our blog to go there and get this great new resource, or CLICK HERE.

Photographing the 4th Dimension – Time was created to inspire photographers creatively and technically through the exploration of slow shutter and video techniques. 7 creative photography techniques are discussed that in any other photography book might seem unrelated, but each provide the means to convey the passage of time in a manner that creates high impact imagery. Each section includes detailed tips, step-by-step instruction, gear & software recommendations. As a bonus there is even a field checklist to keep in your camera bag, so as to never miss an opportunity in the field. Techniques discussed include long exposures, light painting, star trails, cinemagraphs, time-lapse photography and more.
