New eBook! Antarctic Dreams

Thursday, September 24th, 2015

 

I am happy to announce the publication of my new ebook, Antarctic Dreams, in digital form. I traveled to Antarctica in January 2014, and it is rewarding to have finally produced a portfolio of my favorite images. The book was designed in Adobe Lightroom, with file sizes that have been optimized to preserve the high resolution images files. The quality of the images really comes to life on screen. I know that this isn’t the same tactile experience of holding a book in hand, but it’s hard to dismiss the vivid quality one can enjoy on screen.

Antarctic Dreams – Digital Edition is delivered as two PDF files. One PDF contains single pages for viewing on an iPad, tablet, or other digital device and so is optimized for viewing the individual images, as well as for reading text. The second PDF shows the two-page spreads, allowing you to enjoy the book as it was originally designed.

I hope you enjoy my new book, which features 79 photographs and essays about my amazing photographic journey.  Please share this with your friends and fellow photographers!

Antarctic Dreams – a developing portfolio Part Two

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

As many of you might have noticed, I returned three weeks ago from an amazing adventure:  Antarctica By Air – A Unique Luminous Landscape Photographic Workshop with Michael Reichmann and Kevin Raber.

Here is a set of ten new images.  In spite of all the energy I have been putting into editing and processing in the past three weeks, I am shocked and thrilled that I still have many strong images to “finish” and present to you.

I would enjoy your comments and feedback on this selection.  When I have another set of newly processed images, I will let you know!  Also, as new images are created, I am adding them to my Facebook pageGoogle+ or 500px.

Enjoy, and if you Like, please Share!

Antarctic Dreams – a developing portfolio

Antarctic Dreams – a developing portfolio

I recently returned from an amazing adventure:  Antarctica By Air – A Unique Luminous Landscape Photographic Workshop with Michael Reichmann.

Only three weeks before departure, I was asked to replace an instructor who was unable to go.  Lucky me.  We photographed for five days, and I made 10,000 frames.  I know this amount sounds ridiculous, but the days were very long, the quality of the landscapes and wildlife was epic, and the shooting conditions difficult as we were often photographing from our zodiacs or the ship.  I photographed all images without a tripod, and with little time to deliberate on each composition.  Handholding and using two cameras, one with wide-angle zoom and another with a telephoto zoom, was a constant struggle.  And out of my comfort zone.

I have been editing and post-processing at a frenetic pace, anxious to see, begin to absorb and interpret all that I saw.

Here is a collection of 20 images, chosen only by my spontaneous leaping through my Lightroom catalog.  I am thrilled with the results, but I have a long way to go in my editing.  I plan to develop a portfolio of 40-50 images for a potential ebook, gallery prints and exhibits.

I would enjoy your comments and feedback on this selection.  When I have another set of newly processed images, I will let you know!  As new images are created, I am adding them to my Facebook page, Google+ or 500px.

Enjoy!

Bill
