Aren’t You Glad You Have Dials (2016-06-17 14:04)

The interior of an abandoned herring factory in Djúpavík, Westfjords, Iceland. At the time it was built, 1935, this was the most enormous concrete building in iceland and one of the largest in Europe, and built in just one year. Herring oil was crucial for general health, and was taken as a supplement. But also, herring oil was used by the Germans to manufacture glycerin, the main ingredient in nitroglycerine, used in the creation of explosives, especially during WWII. I traveled here with a group of photographers, including Lance Keimig.

Nikon D610/Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 30s f/14 ISO 100. I “light painted” the interior, illuminating everything while the camera shutter was open, using a Protomachines LED2 flashlight for the various colored lighting. And yes, doing this brought a huge smile to my face. Also, I found it funny that a group of night photographers would travel together to Iceland, where the sun is out for around 21 hours a day.

I Am Puffin, Hear Me Roar (2016-06-14 23:34)
 
This is a puffin in the Látrabjarg Bird Cliffs in Iceland. And now, I will entertain you with some fun facts:
– Puffins only have their Technicolor bill part of the time, during mating season.
– They are nicknamed “sea parrots”, or sometimes “clowns of the sea”.
– Puffins are amazing swimmers, and can dive 60m underwater. So, like, that’d be almost 200 feet under the surface.
– The Látrabjarg Bird Cliffs are the westernmost part of Europe.
– Puffins can be found on menus of some restaurants around Reykjavik.
– I think this is the first time I ever seriously tried to photograph wild birds.
– I did not use any Photoshop Cartoon Function to make this fine bird look like Toucan Sam.
Nikon D610/Nikkor 28-300mm 1/640s f/5.6 ISO 1000. Special thanks to Tyler Heibeck for giving me a few tips on photographing birds, as I have never photographed wildlife birds before.

Photo: Land of the Black Church, Iceland

Land Of The Black Church (2016-06-14 16:55 01)

An ant’s eye view of the Black Church. For the first part of the trip, I traveled toward the west part of Iceland with a photographic group led by Lance Keimig.  We stopped at the Black Church near Raudisandur, or Red Sand Beach. The church is a typical Lutheran style for this region. This is probably one of the few days we had really clear skies on the whole trip, as it was overcast and cloudy most of the time. The black church is one of 3 black churches in Iceland. They are black because the exterior wood is painted with pitch, just like the hull of a boat to protect it from the harsh Icelandic elements.
Nikon D610/Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 1/400s f/8 ISO 200.
