Shooting High-Res Thermal Photos of Iceland to Show Nature at Work – Photography Article

A computer vision engineer by day and photographer by night, I never take the path most traveled, especially when it comes to imaging technology. Thermal cameras are one of the most interesting types of cameras, and while they are widely used in industrial, scientific, and military applications, they are largely untouched and unknown to the general public. Thermal cameras aren’t your average infrared camera, which sees light in the 0.8-1.7 micron range of wavelengths, depending on the sensor technology. On…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography I previously shared a post containing the best of my photos from my Laugavegur trail trek. This follow-up post is aimed at anyone who’s considering this trek themselves, or something similar – Especially if you intend to combine hiking with photography. It’s a fairly comprehensive discussion of logistics, locations, problems, and our choices. If you haven’t read the previous post, I’d recommend reading that one first. If you follow this blog purely for…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography In search of ever more adventurous photography experiences, I got talking to fellow landscape photographer Elliot Hook about visiting Iceland together, and we decided it would be a good idea to hike the Laugavegur trail. Despite having no real experience of this sort of thing, we were both keen to expand our horizons, and push ourselves to try something a bit out there. We hiked the trail in July/August 2018, and it was…

How To Photograph Sunrises & Sunsets – Time.Lapse Photography Article

Photographing the sun as it arrives and when it sets is usually your top priority when starting out with landscape photography. The 30 minutes before and after the sun rising or setting is known as the “golden hour” and I’ve found this time of day yields some of the best photographs in a photographer’s portfolio. In this article I’m going to tell you some of my best tips that you can use to create some amazing photographs of a sunrise or…

The Doors of Stykkishólmur – Kirk Norbury – Time.Lapse Photography Article

I never thought that doors would have so much character until I visited the lovely fishing village of Stykkishólmur found on the Snæfellsnes peninsula in Iceland. I hadn’t previously visited this village before so didn’t really know what to expect but driving in I saw that this village wasn’t your regular dwelling where everything looked the same. The place was overrun with character! Each house had its own design, its own colour scheme and the doors were what really grabbed…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography It’s almost a year since I visited Iceland for the second time, so I figured it was about time I put some photos together for a blog post. On our first visit, we had amazing blue skies and unseasonably warm weather. That makes the travel, and holiday more enjoyable, but it can mean that photography is difficult outside of sunset and sunrise hours. This time around, we had a lot of rain, a real storm,…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography I visited Iceland for the second time this year, and on one occasion I was fortunate enough to find stormy conditions on Reynisfjara beach, near the Southern coastal town of Vik. In almost gale force winds, the waves were crashing down from 3-4 metres or more in height, and I took a few photos… Reynisfjara Tumbling WavesFrom a stormy day on Reynisfjara beach, Southern Iceland.

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography This time last year, I wrote about my goals for 2013. So today I’m going to take a look back at them, and see how I think I did, during a very busy year. I think that setting goals last year really helped me think about the direction I want to go in, and kept my attention on the right kind of trips and days out as the year went on. So that will…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography I’ll be honest, I was feeling a little sheepish ahead of our trip to Iceland. I’d wanted to visit for years, as traditional “summer holidays” just aren’t my thing, and Iceland has always offered something different. The attitude of the people, the natural features and hot springs, the ease of access (just a cheap flight away from the UK) make it a really attractive prospect. But… in the last couple of years especially,…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography I recently wrote about my enjoyable 2012, and my favourite photos from the year. This time I’m looking forward to 2013, and thinking ahead to what I’ll be focusing on in 2013; both literally and figuratively.   The first thing is that I took a lot of photos this year. Around 10-12,000 at a rough estimate. And I think I want to take fewer next year. I want to…
