When driving home from a wedding venue I saw the the scene below and just had to photograph it. Sometimes everything comes together perfectly, the light, the colour, the clouds etc
So I pulled over, jumped out and shot this. I could get into landscape photography. I have a whole series of shots I want to do. Lets start with this one.
This is probably for the photographers out there only but I thought it might be useful.
Well this problem comes up for a lot of people and I have found how to solve it. Like many other photographers I often run a second display with my macbook and I kept running into this problem. I hope this helps someone and please leave a comment if it helps you.
If you macbook is running and external display from you mini port and suddenly you find your computer cant detect that display – you just get the flash of blue screen as it tries to change then nothing. Then do as follows:
Please note that these settings will reset your system preferences, this allows your macbook to detect your monitor successfully and connect to it. For almost everyone this means nothing. Does not affect your wifi or your monitor calibration etc. You do it at your own risk but its not really doing much.
Restart your computer and as it restarts hold down the following keys all at the same time option(alt) cmd P R
SO thats 4 keys being held down as the computer reboots. You will need to hold them down for 15-20 seconds the computer will reboot, then go blank and then reboot again, at this stage you can release the keys and let your macbook load normally. Problem solved.
No I dont mean I lost a personal project haha. But it was a theme I worked on recently. I had a hurricane lantern and thought it would be fun to do a very quick shoot of someone lost in the fog with a hurricane lantern. I shot this when it was nearly dark and the light from the lantern is real rather than photoshop. The mist is also real. The mist is actually what started the idea as we had several misty mornings/evenings in a row and predicting we would have it again the following day I set up the shoot very quickly. It was over in 10 minutes. I think I took around 30 frames experimenting with various angles.
