Bandelier Nat'l Monument with Ron Reznick

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by catalyst, Jun 21, 2007.

  1. Here are a handful of shots taken at one of the venues (Bandelier National Monument) during our recent New Mexico workshop with Ron Reznick.

    The entire session was a blast, the group was very friendly, comfortable and collegial, and when Ron said that the information would be flowing like a fire hose, he wasn't kidding - LOL.

    All were taken with the D200. I hope that these appear bright enough on a PC monitor, even though Ron used his Eye One Match spectrophotometer to calibrate my PowerBook's monitor . . .

    Stream: Sigma 10-20 @ 14 mm, f/11, 1/15 s, ISO 200 with polarizer and 2 stop grad N.D. filter:

    NIKON D200    ---    14mm    f/11.0    1/15s    ISO 200

    Wall - Sigma 10-20 @ 17mm, f/8, 1/125 s, ISO 320 with polarizer:

    NIKON D200    ---    17mm    f/8.0    1/125s    ISO 320

    Skull cave - Nikon 18-70 @ 31mm, f/8 1/320 s, ISO 200:

    NIKON D200    ---    31mm    f/8.0    1/320s    ISO 200

    Talus and cliffs - Nikon 18-70 @ 25 mm, f/8, 1/125 s, ISO 200:

    NIKON D200    ---    25mm    f/8.0    1/125s    ISO 200


    P.S. to Ron - Yeah, I realize that I just about blew the red channel on a couple of these. I'll do better with my WB settings next time - LOL.

    Eric :

    Wow. I really like the Skull Cave shot. Good eye.

    And what a pleasure to meet you this last weekend. Now I can put a face behind the camera.

  3. Hey John -

    Same here - it was my pleasure to meet you, and to benefit from your gentle and wise input, and your kind demeanor.

    For some of us of a certain age, the skull cave might remind of the old comic strip and more recent movie "The Phantom"???

    Your pal,

    Kind demeanor ? Oops. :wink: Don't let anybody know about that, eh? I've got a rep to maintain... :cool: 

    And yes, that same concept did occur to me (and I'm easily old enough to remember The Ghost Who Walks).

    Actually not a bad movie, either.

  5. Nice series, Eric. I know what you mean about the red channel!!
  6. Kinda reminds me of He-Man.
