Pic(k) of the week 23: S A N D S C A P E S
Working on personal projects is "the" key to keep the creatives juices in one's photography, flowing! While waiting for the sun to go down in the Dubai desert for an upcoming startrail shoot, I got fascinated by the different patterns in the sand dunes.
Since then, I've been back to the desert several times, to specifically look for "Sandscapes", clearly not an official word but neither something I invented myself... Obviously influenced by the world "landscapes", over the years photographers started using variations like cityscapes, seascapes, etc... Sandscapes is just an extension of this list.
The image below is a triptych of three images that made it into the new "Sandscapes" gallery.
All 3 shot with the Fujifilm X-T1 and the 50-140 f2.8 lens
Shot a varying focal lengths and ISO's (1250 to 1600), f11, 1/400s
RAW file development in Lightroom CC
Lightroom CC Print module to make the triptych
The new Sandscapes gallery can be found here and is clearly a work in progress.
Remember to "Write your worries in sand and carve your blessings in stone"!
