Frame Averaging – A Complete Guide To The New Long Exposure Triangle

It’s been around 18 months since Phase One first launched the concept of Frame Averaging in their IQ4 series of digital backs – a technology that can produce an in-camera long exposure image, essentially “decoupling” time from the traditional exposure triangle, with no need for filters in front of the lens. As one of their global ambassadors, it was great to see it develop through from those very first images I shot for the Phase […]

Comet Neowise – NeoWhere? Finding the Coolest Thing in the Night Sky

As the brightest comet in nearly a quarter of a century, you’d think that catching a glimpse of the huge cosmic ice-ball otherwise known as C/2020 F3 “NEOWISE” would be easy. After all, many had reported seeing it in the pre-dawn sky, and it’s a pretty decent size at 3 miles wide. As it travels through space at a rate of 144,000 miles per hour, nearly 70 million miles away from earth, NEOWISE has become […]

Dual Exposure+ – Testing the New Phase One Lab in Miami’s South Beach

My phone buzzed – “are you going anywhere with bright lights and deep shadows soon?” was the question. It was the guys at Phase One, with a new “toy” for me to play with – an incredible enhancement to the IQ4 medium format digital back which would allow for shadows to be recovered, virtually noise-free, with a 3-stop difference to the highlights in what appears to be one single shot. In other words, the “natural […]

Patagonia – Part Two: Mt Fitz Roy, El Chaltén, Argentina

Nearly a year on, and we return to “Part Two” of my Patagonia trip – following on from the time already spent in Chile’s Torres Del Paine National Park. It turns out, there’s a LOT of paperwork involved in taking a car from Chile to Argentina – something that Mark had (luckily) flagged before we picked it up in Punta Arenas. Without all these documents (and fees) being arranged when you collect your car in […]

The Other World Mono Lake State Reserve Park County Tufa South Paul Reiffer Professional Photographer Medium Format Phase One Sunrise Long Exposure Rocks Prints Large California

Mono Lake – Shooting ‘The Other World’ for Nearly 20 Years

While managing to remain relatively hidden and “off the beaten track”, Mono Lake (and its Tufa State Natural Reserve) has managed to capture the imagination of photographers from all round the world for many years – those keen to explore beyond the obvious nearby locations such as Yosemite National Park and Death Valley. My first encounter of this other-worldly destination (above) was very much a “drive-by” on a road trip nearly two decades ago (from […]

Death Valley – Photographs from the Hottest Place on Earth

Why would anyone go to the hottest recorded place on the planet to photograph locations 282ft below sea level? The answer is simple : Because Death Valley’s landscapes are absolutely mind-blowing. Step out of your air conditioned car and you’re instantly hit with the wall of arid heat that awaits all visitors to this seemingly barren land. With red STOP signs in every direction, warning of the dangers of walking after 10am (and the importance […]

Firefall – Capturing the Winter Glow of Yosemite’s Horsetail Falls

It’s a rare thing these days, finding solitude in the world combined with a stunning natural phenomenon; the result of an “Instagram generation” of which we’re all now seemingly members – where the “selfie” and “tick-box” is often more important than witnessing the event itself. While I stood in the thick snow of Yosemite National Park, in the shadow of El Capitan and Horsetail Falls, I couldn’t help but wonder how it must have felt […]

Splash! – Water Drop Photography with High Speed Freeze Flash

Sometimes it’s great to just have a bit of time to experiment and play with a new way of seeing the world. When 95% of your photography is capturing the outdoors or images for commercial clients, a few hours in the studio with some new toys to play with can open the mind (and shutter) to something very different indeed. Whether you hear it referred to as “water drop” photography or “splash” photography, we’re generally […]

Light Pollution, Astroklar & Natural Night Filter Review – Do They Really Work?

Light pollution: Increasingly a challenge for city dwellers and photographers alike. Those deep, dark skies that I’m lucky enough to see full of stars out in the countryside are becoming an endangered species in their own right as the world’s population continues to rise and urban areas inevitably expand. The problem is, with all that light bouncing around, our view of the night sky (and ability to capture it) continues to diminish on a daily […]

Chill Out : The End of Winter in Iceland

For the briefest of moments, the sound of cracking had stopped – the huge iceberg formations that feed Iceland’s iconic Jökulsárlón (or “glacial river lagoon” when translated) had steadied and the tide was turning. While often full of baby icebergs which have fallen away from the surface of the Vatnajökull glacier, finding one of this size in isolation resting in still water (with very few people around to distract) was quite unusual. Even better, the stillness […]

Spellbound : Iceland’s Northern Winter Waterfalls

It’s a truly amazing feeling – that moment when you walk up to a location that’s taken ages to get to, having planned it for months, with doubt all along the way that you’d even arrive – to find the exact scene you were hoping for. With a mix of relief, awe and then urgency; it was time to shoot the stunning Aldeyjarfoss waterfall, in the North-East of Iceland, before the weather closed in after our ice-bound […]
