Week 4: Photography Edition (Aperture, Greenland, Exposure)

Aperture Curves

Rob Boyer wrote a series of articles about the Curves tool in Aperture that goes into great detail. It's one of the best explanations I've read and I learned a few things I didn't know. Rob knows his stuff. Check them out at:

If you use Aperture at all, go read them now. I guarantee you'll learn something you didn't know. If you don't use Aperture, I still recomend you read them since most of the information applies to curves in general and you'll be able to use it in Lightroom, Photoshop, iPhoto or whatever you use.

Daniel Zvereff photographs from Greenland

I find isolated locations fascinating. Greenland is on my list of places to visit one day, so I was excited when I saw this series of photographs from Greenland by Daniel Zvereff on the Leica Camera Blog. This is how he describes it:

The indescribable beauty of Greenland has provided me with complex revelations. These stark landscapes demand only admiration. The large, never-ending mountains reach up towards the universe, beckoning the clouds to wrap around them like blankets. These old giants inspire a simplicity and capacity of the mind; here humanity and its problems are left behind.

Beautiful. Find out about Daniel Zvereff on his website.

Exposure

Exposure is a platform to publish photo narratives. I've only started playing with it and so far I really like it. It's the easiest way I've seen to publish a photo essay or story and the result looks beautiful. It feels kind of like a Medium but for photography.
