Journey Into Climate

Taking photos in the cold is not a lot of fun. But try that at the South Pole or in the Himalayas.

Actually, you don’t have to since Paul Andrew Mayewski and Michael Cope Morrison took a lot of stunning images while on excursions in the 1980’s. The slides they took have been scanned, are now available in a book, and a subset will be on display in July 2012 at the Canessa Gallery, 708 Montgomery Street, in San Francisco.

More information at Journey Into Climate. You can get some of the images printed on fotoflōt.

Loe Lekas HDR Magic

Sometimes you come across some photos where you think “how was that done”?.

Joe Lekas creates those kind of photos all the time.

Located in Chicago, he takes advantage of the many stunning views in and around the city. But he applies his magic to locations across the contry. Take a look at some of his work at http://photography.josephlekas.com or an intervie he gave at The Art Career Project.

Joe executes the creation of his High Dynamic Range art pieces flawlessly. What is most impressive is the detail sharpness he achieves, considering that many of his creations are actually ‘stitched HDRs”.
