How to not have people in your photos

As you can see from today’s photo, one of the way to avoid people, is to go out when it’s crazy hot and no one in their right mind would be outside :)

But there are also better options, and I write about those in the article here.

Sunny day in Salamanca

I would love to take this shot in the evening with the light on. Maybe next time I’m in Spain. But it will not be in Summer. Not again :)

This is a two shot panorama, merged in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

Astana Around Us

As I mentioned before, I visited Astana in Kazakhstan few weeks ago. I can’t really share the photos with you yet, but what I can show you, are few photos from the exhibition I’m a part off. Big thanks to Altair for sending me the photos :)

(the second photo is not mine, just including it to show you how the display looks like)
So if you are in Astana, Kazachstan, go to the city center and check them out in person.

On the roman bridge in Salamanca

Normally you would never get me to take photos at a day like the on I took this one. It was over 40 degrees Celsius outside, with zero clouds and crazy sunny. It was hard to even stand outside in the sun. But as I only had about 2-3 hours in the city of Salamanca, and I knew there is this old Roman bridge there, I wanted some photos of it. And I do not know If I go back, ever.

Good thing in such a weather though, that there was almost no one else outside. Just other crazy people like me :). So I had most of the bridge for myself. I really liked this composition, with the 4 lamp framing the cathedral in the distance. And I again did a panorama here to get more of the surrounding of the bridge into the photo.

This is a two shot panorama, combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

One from my first photos taken with the 5D mark II. I did so many mistakes that week :) Like not using a bubble level to correct the horizon, relining on auto white balance and more. But one always learns. Taken in the spring of 2012.

Metropolis, but no Superman here :) This is one of the night shots I took in Madrid last year. Still the weather here is horrible and I still have some time before my first bigger trip, so I’m still going through my older photos.

I really liked Madrid. Such a busy city. I had a hotel really close to this place, so I explored the city center as much as I could (I was just too tired for night shooting).

This is a manual blend from three shots, most of the photo is from the +2EV and I darkened the bright areas of the buildings.

I sometimes look back, to see if my skills in editing photos evolve. And so I did today. This is a photo I took last year in Madrid. And as I edited a very similar photo a year ago, it nicely shows the difference in how I edited photos then and how I edit them now.

So this is the new photo, edited now:

And this is a photo taken few minutes later, but edited a year ago :)
