Hey N&L POTNers,

I need some help on July 19th I was photographing the sunrise at the Maroon Bells(my first trip to the Bells well the previous night was my first time as I was there for the sunset) but yeah I was there catching the sunrise and there was a photography group/workshop of people there doing the same thing and this longish white hair man gets down to his underware and gets in the water and photographs himself in the foreground with the Bells in the background.. to my left was this photog Kimberly(from California) I think her name was and she tells me his name and tells me he is famous for putting himself in his pictures, I said wow would love to see this picture he took of himself and his other work soo I give her my Card and tell her to drop me a email cause I knew I would'nt remember his name as it was unique.

well no emails as of yet but I do have this picture of the group, thats her(oof) in the foreground walking towards this group,

I'm hoping if you were at this workshop I think she said it was 5 days, or if you are pictured in this photo could you please tell me the instructors name as I would love to see the photos he created this day. cause that water was cold and he was brave this morning for going all out for the shot.

& being this in N&L picture sharing section might as well share 3 I like from my 2 days at my first trip to the Bells. I'll post a new thread with my Bells trip eventually here :)
1. sunset the night before

Nice shots, but your watermark is very distracting and takes away from the images.

Nice shots. The first one is a little dark, but the last one is an amazing shot!

thanks Sara:) and yeah on number 1 its a 2min 9 sec exposure with a 9 stop and 3 stop ND filter on it and there's a flaw in that combo as I see Banding when I increase the shawdows too much soo I left those trees a bit dark,, and it was sunset soo a lil IMO looks ok, I think I made sure the bells were exposed right. but yeah for sure if I print it I might increase the over brightness. thanks for mentioning it.

ps I checked out your website and Wow!

Lovely photos! Steve, I noticed that you were in bulb mode for photo 3 (gorgeous!). How long was the shutter open? And did you take several with varying shutter open times to nail it?

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Great shots Captain Steve!!! You captured it well. Good luck finding the photographer from the lake. Hopefully he is a regular on here.

Thanks. The Maroon Bells are a beautiful place. Your last shot is really outstanding, much better than my mid-day windy day shots of the same place.

Shot number 3 is stunning-I love it!

Scrumhalf, how did you see that he shot in bulb? I didn't find any exif info here or on Flickr.


Have a wheelie nice day!

^Hmmm... are you looking at this site on a mobile phone or handheld device? When I click on the photograph on my laptop, it takes me to Steve's flickr page. When I click on the camera name on the right side below his name, it displays the exif data.

And when I look at the exif data more carefully, I realize that I have the answer to my question. The "exposure" entry is 79, which I assume means 79 seconds.

As a newbie photographer, my question still is on how Steve figures out that 79 seconds is the right exposure for a bulb shot. Experience? Several exposures? Since I have never used the bulb mode, does the LCD display the image after the shutter is closed manually at the end of the bulb exposure, and one could figure out whether the shot is correctly exposed? Sorry for the elementary questions, I am learning so much by just looking at the exif data for the various photos!
