So I decided to share a composition today. My love for photography resides in post production. This image shows how I’ve been feeling the past month or 2. Photography for me has been about learning and trying to improve my work. Every few weeks I get the feeling that my work is not good enough, so I spend most my free time trying to change that. After another week or 2 the same feeling comes back again. It feels like I’m climbing a loop of stairs that never ends. Feeling pretty burnt out so I booked a trip to Asia to take a month break from editing this October. . . . . . . . #sonyalpha #ourmoodydays #createexplore #bluehour #way2ill #sunset #depthobsessed #createexplore #explore #landscape #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkgood #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #sheep #iceland #europe at Kirkjubaejarklaustur

Lake Louise was the place I fell in love with landscape photography. I was going to Calgary a few years back and stopped by this magical lake for some quick sight seeing. At that time I only had my phone so I snapped a few quick pics. I still remember how frozen and deeply it was covered by snow. Even though this place has been shared probably tens of thousands of times I hope my editing gives you a new sight to see. . . . . . . . #Explorecanada #explorealberta #ourmoodydays #createexplore #bealpha #banff #reflectiongram #depthobsessed #theweekoninstagram #earthoutdoors #landscape #wildernessculture #lakelouise #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #soft_vision #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #greatnorthcollective at Lake Louise, Alberta

Was hoping for more clouds but it was still a sunset to remember. I took a new approach to editing this image. I’m trying to stray away from all my super dark tones and will be focusing more towards a lighter vibe. Let me know your thoughts! Also I will be uploading the before and after to my story for anyone who is interested!

Skogafoss what a magical place! During my visit to Iceland I went to this place maybe five times during different weather conditions to capture it in a different setting. This was taken a little after sunset. It was a little dark so I had to ramp up the ISO a tiny bit but the mood was on point. Shot with the Sony a7riii 16-35mm 1/40 f4 ISO 200 . . . . . . . #sonyalpha #ourmoodydays #createexplore #waterfall #way2ill #sunrise #depthobsessed #createexplore #explore #landscape #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkgood #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #bluehour #iceland #europe at Skógafoss

Took a few days off from editing. When I started again it felt like I was doing it for the first time. I guess you have to keep on practicing everyday so you don’t forget the workflow. I had a lot of difficulty editing this image as the day was pretty hazy and adjusting the focus of the shot was tedious as well. I’ll be uploading the before and after to my story in a bit as always for anyone who is interested! Let me know your thoughts on this edit! . . . . . . #Explorecanada #explorealberta #ourmoodydays #createexplore #ig_color #way2ill #reflectiongram #depthobsessed #createexplore #natgeo #landscape #wildernessculture #cabin #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #soft_vision #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #greatnorthcollective at Yoho National Park

I’ve been tweaking this image bit by bit for the past few weeks and I think I’m finally satisfied with the results. This was taken during blue hour when the entire place was dark and colourless. It was also a cloudless morning so I felt like the sky was a bit empty which I filled with clouds from a magical sunset I experienced a while back. I’ll be uploading the before and after to my story in a bit for anyone who is interested! . . . . . . #Explorecanada #explorealberta #ourmoodydays #emeraldlake #ig_color #way2ill #reflectiongram #depthobsessed #createexplore #natgeo #landscape #wildernessculture #cabin #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #soft_vision #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #greatnorthcollective at Emerald Lake

Some places you have to see to believe and this is one of them! From the details of the sand to the mountain peaks it all felt like a dream. I only wish I could have seen this place a few more times under different weathers. . . . . . . . #sonyalpha #ourmoodydays #createexplore #mountain #way2ill #sky #depthobsessed #createexplore #explore #landscape #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkgood #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #cloud #iceland #europe at Iceland

Happy Friday friends! Through out this week I’ve been getting a lot of editing and some camera gear questions. So I will dedicating today’s stories to explaining some of these. If you have a quick question you can also leave a comment and I’ll try to answer it. . . . . . . . #sonyalpha #ourmoodydays #createexplore #bluehour #way2ill #waterfall #depthobsessed #createexplore #explore #landscape #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkgood #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #sunrise #iceland #europe at Skógafoss

Let the light guide you trough this photo. If it is too dark turn up the brightness 😂😂 when I took this photo it was a cloudy day where everything was evenly illuminated by subtle light. I wanted to direct the eye towards the river canyon so I used some photoshop magic. Hope it turned out alright!

What is the first thing that catches your eyes when you look at this image? Norway has been number one on places I wish to visit. Seeing this place in all its natural glory would be a dream. I should actually start saving up 😂😂 A 2 image composite for the #evoffa Photo by @evolumina edited by me . . . . . . . #lofoten #ourmoodydays #createexplore #way2ill #visitnorway #depthobsessed #createexplore #explore #landscape #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkgood #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #sunset #norway #europe at Lofoten

My first entry for the #EvoFFA this place has been on my bucket list for the longest time. Hopefully next year 😁 also tried out a new way of editing! As usually, before and after will be posted on my stories in a bit for whoever is interested.

Lake Louise, one of my favorite spots to visit in Banff. This was taken last October maybe a week after the first snow fall. I was having trouble editing this shot ever since I returned from that trip. I felt like it didn’t have a true representation of how magical this place was. I think with this new method I’ve finally figured it out. Hope this photo shows a partial representation of how beautiful Lake Louise is! Also, I will be uploading some before afters and previous attempts to my story in a bit! If interested have a look and let me know your thoughts! . . . . . . #Explorecanada #explorealberta #ourmoodydays #createexplore #ig_color #way2ill #reflectiongram #depthobsessed #createexplore #natgeo #landscape #wildernessculture #cabin #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #soft_vision #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #greatnorthcollective at Lake Louise, Alberta

One of my favorite spots in Iceland. Really wanted to see this place during a clear sunrise or sunset but the weather gave me rain instead. Also, at 16mm it was hard to capture the full scale of the view. Totally forgot I could shoot different perspectives and stitch everything together. Oh well maybe next time. Shot with @sonyalpha a7riii 16-35mm F4 1/160s 100 ISO . . . . . . . #sonyalpha #ourmoodydays #createexplore #ig_color #way2ill #reflectiongram #depthobsessed #createexplore #natgeo #landscape #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #soft_vision #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #greatnorthcollective #iceland #europe at Iceland

Happy Friday everyone! I’m organizing my computer today so I think I’ll post some edits from 2-3 years ago and a few from recently to see how different they are so if you’re interested I’ll be sharing them in the stories in a bit! Also since I’ve been asked about camera and gear I think I will also include that in all of my photos too now. Shot on Sony a7riii 16-35 f4 1/50 ISO 500 . . . . . . . #sonyalpha #ourmoodydays #createexplore #bluehour #way2ill #sunrise #depthobsessed #createexplore #explore #landscape #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkgood #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #bluehour #iceland #europe at Vík
