Inspired by other landscape photographers, Like He went from snapping family photos to composing stunning landscapes of our area.
L.H.: My earliest exposure to digital photography started in 2004, when I purchased my first digital camera, a Canon A95 to take photos of my 2 year old daughter. I didn’t become serious until almost 10 years later, when by accident I became a member of a photo competition website, 500px.com, where I was shocked and awed by the beautiful landscape photos posted by the talented photographers throughout the world. I wanted to be one of them. I started to learn how to use my DSLR camera, ND filters, long exposures, Lightroom and Photoshop.
I find it very challenging to present the beautiful world though digital photographs, due to the limitation of the sensors of the digital cameras. Our eyes can perceive 14 stops light in dynamic range, while the best DSLRs can only capture 11 stops at best. I also find it difficult to make the photos stand out in front of talented Duluth photographers. Taking sunrise or sunset photos during the winter months is brutal, but the results of capturing the beautiful Duluth in its golden hours are very rewarding.
