For some of my followers you might have noticed that my Page “Iwan Groot Photography” which was for portraits has been merged with this page. So you can expect me to upload some of those portraits, but will be mainly my Retouched Portraits and my fine Art portraits, I dont think I will included my regular photoshoots,
I also have just moved to Ålesund so you Might see a bit more of the city from now on.
The Stairs up to the Fjellstua were rebuilt this year So for my Photo “Twilight above Ålesund I & II” I went up a different path since this one was closed and shot from higher up.
I Mainly went up here since I had some time to spend and since the clouds were very blah I thought I would just take some test shots to plane my next shoot here. But towards the end of my time here on the Stairs, the clouds started to break showing the patterns of how the cotton candy of the sky was flowing over the mountains and splitting apart to let some light through. This oppurtunity gave some clouds I really liked. I believe this types of cloud is called Stratus.
I like shooting lower to get some foreground, aswell as getting a several different poses at the edge and the wind provided some nice movement to my hair. The angels from this postion I find more complimentary, also the stairs going back and forth making s curves at the bottom of the fram give a unique image. This Panorama is made out of 4 tiles each with exposures, and to emphasize the colors I was seeing coming through the clouds I used two different white balances. For some it might be too much editing as it isnt straight out of the camera, But Im trying ti show what i experence, when I look i see color, I see contrast, I see Movement and a moment. I see a composition rather than a view, I see nature that can be captured in the Fine Art of Photography. I think you will see some fine art portraits from here in the future, if I can get models. =D
