EDIT: thank you very much for the DD, I'm honored :) I've decided to reprocess the image and post it as a larger version. I hope you enjoy it!

Arguably the most beautiful and impressive waterfall I've ever seen, Aldeyjarfoss is even more impressive in its frozen winter clothing, and this image doesn't begin to do it justice. In winter, it is reachable only by super jeeps, but making the effort to get there was definitely worth the hardship.
The 20-meter-high waterfall is part of the river Skjįlfandafljót, and is famous for its hexagonal basalt columns, belonging to the Sušurįrhraun lava field.
We will be visiting Aldeyjarfoss on a wild super-jeep ride during my upcoming 'Winter Paradise' workshop.

If you wish to visit and shoot these awesome locations under my dedicated guidance, please check out my upcoming 'Land of Ice' (south Iceland) and 'Winter Paradise' (northern Iceland) photography workshops next January. You can view the workshops teaser trailer here!

You're also welcome to follow me on my facebook page, where you can get a first look at my images, as well as get all the info about my work, photo tours and other news.

Above the alpine line, where snow packs fifteen-feet-deep five months of the year, an oasis of gueule de loup springs from the cracks.  As the sun turns over head, the faces of the flowers spin in unison, fighting to attract the few bees that venture so high.

This is a blend of 7 focus slices for the foreground depth of field and one different exposure for the sky. The lens is literally 7" from the flowers. That is why I needed so many focus slices.

This was one of the hardest 1.5 mile hikes I've ever made. You start from the lake down there and hike up this steep, crumbly mountain until you get to this ridge. I damn near killed myself stepping on unstable rocks over and over.

I loved the view here and set up for sunset. It took me about an hour to find a spot and composition I really liked. I really liked this shot more than later ones I took from the same spot, because the sun is falling scross those trees in the front and adds a lot the depth of the image by having a nice middleground subject. Later, those trees were dark and it didn't seem as strong of an image.

On day 2 of the film shoot for the documentary for aFeinberg Galleries we hit the trail early and hiked along the south shore of Kauai for sunrise at a spot I had scouted the week earlier. The hope was to get some sweet reflections but alas the wind was not to have any of that. Instead I scampered out to capture the waves as they washed over this neon green moss. Luck would have it the sun would rise just at the edge of the cliffs and grace us with about 5 min of good light and then back in to the clouds.

Much different shooting photographs with cameras pointed at you. ha! Look for the docu dropping June 2012 :)

Thanks!

Collection: The Nintendo Generations

Fri Apr 24, 2015, 4:12 PM
Img-00 by techgnotic














While Atari may have defined a generation of gamers, Nintendo has both ushered in and held the hearts of several generations with their unique combination of affordable consoles and memorable characters. Mario may have been born a supporting character in Donkey Kong, but he has climbed the ladder, or perhaps slid up the pipe, to become not only Nintendo’s mascot, but one of the most recognizable characters across the globe.


Nintendo products have been met with varying success, from the much loved and nostalgically covered original Nintendo gaming machine and the GameBoy to the often forgotten flop of the Virtual Boy; the forerunner of the Oculus Rift perhaps? Nintendo hit its stride in the market by offering affordable consoles combined with large galleries of games with a wide audience. Not considered the brand for “hardcore” gamers, Nintendo has traditionally shied away from the more violent and graphically-intensive genres. Instead, Nintendo offers games with enough simplicity that any child or novice gamer can enjoy, yet enough complexity, story or challenge to keep even the most advanced gamer coming back for more. With both the Wii U and the New Nintendo 3DS offering a wide catalog of new and classic games available for download, gamers have more options than ever and no longer need to worry about constantly switching disks or cartridges. Losing yourself in the charming world of a Nintendo game has never been easier.
















Hello! You found my shop of strange and wonderful things!”











These guys are weaker than overcooked noodles!”











A sword wields no strength unless the hand that holds it has courage. You may be destined to become the hero of legend … but your current power would disgrace the proud green of the hero's tunic you wear. You must use your courage to seek power...and find it you must. Only then will you become the hero for whom this world despairs.”











Thank you Mario! But our Princess is in another castle!”

But the locations are all places to be experienced right here on Earth. So much of our world is becoming “flyover” territory in our high–tech mobile society that amazing places like those in these studies are becoming lost to us. Take a long look at each of these landscapes and then ask yourself whether or not most of them would be worth visiting for a few vacation days (instead of lazing by the pool at the Hawaiian beach resort). These should be the candidate “destination” locations in our lives.

A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and Art

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 7, 2012, 2:43 PM


With movies like Avengers, Brave and Hunger Games, 2012 seems to be the Year of the Archers and many artists have already been inspired to create their own archer characters.
Whether you're thinking about having one of your OCs pick up bow and arrow (in writing or drawing) or you're a stock artist who wants to create some decent archery stock, I hope this little guide helps you understand the wonderful thing that is archery.


First and foremost, a little disclaimer: For this article I will mainly draw from my own experiences over the past few years. I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).
However, in archery there are many styles and differences in material used, draw, stance, finger position etc. – it all depends on the context of your story/drawing/stock shoot and I can't possibly provide sufficient information here for every aspect of archery. I'd be happy, though, if this little compilation sparked some interest and encourages you to learn more about archery.

I'll try and include a few images to illustrate the text as well as links and videos for further research. And I'd like to thank snappapple and PirateLotus-Stock for the feedback and help in creating this article – and of course all my wonderful models who are featured here as example pics





Let's start with the equipment:


1. Bows


There are many different types of bows, the most common ones in western style archery being longbow and recurve bow. There are both modern versions of these bows (made out of modern materials such as fiberglass) and traditional versions carved out of one piece of wood (creating recurved limbs is rather easy: all you need is boiling water = steam) or made of different materials (so-called composite bows).
Traditional: Archer's Longbow 7 by syccas-stock Robin Hood 15 by syccas-stock
Modern: Female Archer 7 by syccas-stock Male Archer 8 by syccas-stock


The advantage of recurved limbs is that they permit the bow to be shorter and thus easier to handle while maintaining the same level of energy and power. A reflex bow is an extreme form of recurve: Rider bows for example need to be shorter so that the rider can turn around on horseback without whacking their faithful steed every time they do.
Horseback Archer 17 by syccas-stock


Another impressive and very distinctive bow is the so-called yumi, used in Japanese archery (=kyudo) as well as horseback archery (=yabusame), you'll usually see the long, asymmetrical version. Japanese archery is often seen as meditative, with a focus on the art of repetition, the perfection of the shot rather than scoring as many points as possible, however it did start out as a weapon of the Samurai and is not to be underestimated.

For contemporary bow hunting most hunters today will use compound bows that feature a system of cables and pulleys. Not only does it store more energy, it also allows for the archer to aim without the pressure of the bow string.
HIAPL_4 by jademacalla





2. Arrows


There are again different types of arrows, plumage and arrowheads. Nowadays most modern arrows are made of carbon or aluminum, but wooden arrows are still in use.
Male Archer 6 by syccas-stock  :thumb278855542:


I'm going to tell you how I've learned to fletch my arrows but if you dare take a look into an archery forum you'll soon find that there's almost endless discussion on what's the best way to do it. I use three feathers, they are glued to the wooden shaft and secured with string (see image above).
The cock feather often has a different colour and should be placed in a 90° angle to the nock (= slot to place on the bow string) and when you shoot it points away from the bow (again, that seems to be open for discussion).
example - fletching by syccas-stock


A special type of arrow is the so called flu-flu, used for bird and short distance hunting. The big feathers spiral around the wood, which makes the arrow slow down faster and thus easier to find if the archer misses their target.
(They also go "whooooosh!")
example - fluflu by syccas-stock


As for arrowheads,  you'll find that most modern archers use narrow points (field or target points) that are easy to pull from the target and don't cause much damage. However, there are also arrowheads designed to cause as much damage to the victim/prey as possible: broadheads, that feature two or four sharp blades and cause a bigger wound and massive bleeding. Those would be used for hunting and war-related matters.
example - points by syccas-stock





3. Protection


The basic protection kit nowadays would be an armguard or cuff for your forearm and a finger-glove  for the fingers you draw the bow string with.
Technically neither is necessary if you shoot often and correctly, however when using wooden arrows I still recommend the cuff as I've only recently witnessed what a (more or less unnoticeably) damaged wooden arrow can do to you when you try to shoot it and it basically explodes on your bow string.
example - protection by syccas-stock


If you shoot a bow without an arrow rest you could also use a glove for the hand that holds the bow, and there's much more gear to give your archer if you want, such as chest guards or armguards that cover the whole arm that holds the bow.


One thing you should keep in mind: if your archer has long hair  it might get caught in the bow string  – same goes, of course, for other dangly things like necklaces or ribbons etc. That doesn't mean you have to get rid of everything, but keep it in mind when designing your character.









Here is where it gets interesting for stock artists, and while I can try to describe the posture and show you the images, I know that it's still difficult to get it right when you've never had actual training or instructions. So I hope I can still give you a few pointers to make it easier to get started:


1. Posture


For a good archery posture the most important thing to consider is the following:
The strength comes from the archer's back, not their arms.   
In fact, many physical therapists recommend archery as a therapy for back problems. When I started out it helped me to imagine the point between my shoulder blades like a pulley to take my mind off the arm muscles.


Your archer should stand sideways to their target and only rotate their torso, feet slightly apart and relaxed. The way that works best for me is to lean slightly forward with more weight on the foot that's closer to the target.
Both eyes are open, the string is drawn to the face (don't lower their face to meet the string). The movement should be fluid and quick without any overly capricious, show-off extra moves.
Female Archer 4 by syccas-stock Hungarian Archer 12 by syccas-stock





2. Arms and Hands


The arm that holds the bow should be straight but not over-stretched from the very beginning with the elbow pointing to the side rather than to the floor, else they will probably end up smacking their forearm (which is something every beginner has to go through).
example - bad posture2 by syccas-stock  example - good posture by syccas-stock


The arm that holds the string should draw the string straight backwards, with the forearm being in line with the arrow. A very common mistake I see is the elbow being held higher than the arrow line.
example - bad posture by syccas-stock example - good posture by syccas-stock


The hand that draws the string holds the string, not the arrow. Typically you'd draw with index, middle and ring finger (either all three fingers below the arrow OR index above, middle and ring finger below the arrow) but that varies in different styles. The release should be smooth and relaxed and the hand should stay in place for a few seconds after.


The hand that holds the bow holds the bow, not the arrow. The arrow should never go between the fingers, it will be painful and probably derail the arrow of its target. The grip around the bow is soft and never tense, some archers keep their hands open during the draw and only close it around the bow last second.
Typically a right-hand bow places the arrow left of the bow grip but, again, that varies in different styles (it's different in kyudo, for example, and in horseback archery for faster reloading)





3. Anchor Point


Find a suitable anchor point. The anchor point is a point on an archer's face they always draw the string to. This ensures that the full draw stays consistent – that means when you paint or draw your archer-OC you should always give him the same anchor point.
It doesn't matter whether it's a high anchor point (cheekbone, ear, even corner of the eye) or low anchor point (jaw, chin or under) as long as it's consistent.
example anchor points by syccas-stock


For stock-artists this means: Don't be afraid of the string. I often see models drawing the string to a "safe" point in front of their face, not to the side of their cheek or chin. That just won't work.
Btw, in Japanese kyudo things are a bit different again – the arrow is usually drawn to a point behind the ear and the hand is not touching the face at all. It's the same for horseback archery, there you'll often find a floating anchor, often drawn to the collarbone area.
Horseback Archer 18 by syccas-stock





4. Common Mistakes


When I look through dA's archery stock I see a few very common posture mistakes which are then often translated to drawings and paintings. Research is essential for both stockers and artists, and with archery it's probably best to not just look at single pics, but rather go to youtube and watch the whole process.


Pixar's "Brave" shows us three wonderful examples of typical posture problems when they gave them to the competing suitors at the tournament. In contrast, Merida actually does a wonderful job. There's a great article that analyzes the trailer and the overall-archery in this movie, seriously have a look: www.wired.com/geekdad/2012/02/…









I hope this article could give you a little visual guide on how-to and how-not-to ;) If you have any questions please let me know, I'm in no way a big authority in archery but maybe I can help you out or point you in the right direction.
Archery has become an important part of my life and I can only urge you to give it a try, especially now that it has become a bit more mainstream and archery clubs are growing everywhere. Pick up a bow and shoot something! :D





For further research:



Here's a very nice and compact Beginner's Guide to Archery, including some information on different styles, equipment and what to think of when you want to get into archery and need to buy your set-up: www.merlinarchery.co.uk/merlin…

And this is a wonderful summary on the anchor point, which is something every archer should know:
www.archery-tips.com/archeryle…

There's a page that offers a few traditional books on archery to read online, amongst them "Toxophilus" by Roger Ascham (written in 1545), which is sometimes considered the traditional archer's bible. If you can deal with the 16th century English, have a look at it here: www.archerylibrary.com/books/

And last but not least: Wikipedia's archery section is actually very reliable and very extensive, so that's always a good place to start: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archery

Oh, and before I forget, here are a few of dA's reliable archery stock providers (beside myself, of course ;)):
