Hey, hey! The Lightroom team just launched their own Instagram channel and I’m thrilled they included three of my images as part of their #BeBoundless series!

Photo by @jkost || During my first time in Antarctica, we were silently gliding past a larger iceberg. I noticed that there was a hole that I could see through so I focused on that spot and waited to see if we passed by anything interesting. It just so happened that there was a larger iceberg on the other side, and I was fortunate enough to capture an image as it appeared in the “window”. #BeBoundless

 

Photo by @jkost || This entire effect was captured in-camera. I love the idea of using the camera to capture things you can’t see with the naked eye – like black and white, or motion blur as seen here. Photography can be a way to explore new senses and see the world in a different way. #BeBoundless

 

Photo by @jkost || This was my first time using a small airplane for photography… and I’m afraid of flying. There were no doors on the plane and I was strapped in with one of those harnesses you can get at Home Depot. Fear aside, it was an incredible way to change my perspective. #BeBoundless

    Fantastic images, of course!!! Pardon my asking, but, would you possibly mind sharing your technique for the motion blur in the forest image? It’s so beautifully done!

      Hi Marvin, I actually wrote a book about how I did the project – it’s called “Passenger Seat: Creating a Photographic Project from Conception through Execution in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom” You can find it on Amazon if you want all of the details, but in a nutshell: as the passenger in a moving vehicle, I slowed the shutter speed of the camera down to 1/15 or 1/30 of a second and then tried to pan at the same speed as the tree or object that we were driving by. There are a lot of variables, including speed of the car, speed of the pan, distance to the subject etc, but the good news is that since I was capturing digitally, I can easily delete the majority of images that didn’t work! Sometimes I had to increase the ISO to maintain a greater depth of field (because it’s really difficult to get the correct object in focus) and other times (really bright days). I needed a neutral density filter. I hope that helps!
