Africa chapter 3 and last (imgs)

Dear guys,

I quote what I already replied in a previous chapter..."did I already told you you're making me blush? yes, i think...I really have no words to explain you how great is the pleasure for me to see that my images give to you such good feelings, as well as I had while I was shooting, because sharing the beauty of our fantastic world is exactly my primary intent....I so love the nature that if I can only trasmit this positive feeling to a single person, I'm already grateful....so your comments are a gift for me."

I previously decided not to post an other chapter, because I didn't want anyone could thin kI'm here to be voted or to promote myself, but I couldn't imagine that chapter 2 also would have reached the 150 maximum replies and for those who are interested and didn't already visit my galleries (others please ignore this thread and excuse me) I like to have again an open channel (I assure this is the last one for this series, don't worry) for letting me answer to some of you when I can.

Keep shooting the world!

Alex

Alex, please

I won't tell you again how incredibly good you are. I just have a request. The tonality in some of your images is amazing (for example the apes, the lions, the giraffes and the elephants). It's really film-like, or even better than film. I don't think I have ever seen this quality from the D100. Please, please, please explain how you do it. What raw converter and what kind of post processing? I have been reading ALL of your answers but you hardly say anything at all on this matter. You mentioned the Velvia plug-in in the first thread. Is it that good or do you have other secrets?
Best regards
Lasse

Re: Africa chapter 3 and last (imgs)

Beautiful images! Could you explain some of your post-processing techniques? Also did you shoot RAW? How did you store your images in the field and etc ?
Thanks

I too ask again

You keep posting these incredible photos and I have to ask you again (as I did in "second chapter"), would you please share a broad outline of your post processing technique (software, settings, ...)?

Be my guest...

Okay Alex,

You've have my open invitation to be a guest in my home, only if I could hang out with you during a shoot. I hope by osmosis I could pick up a few tips.

I live in one of the most beautiful areas of the world, central coast of California, minutes from Monterey Bay (Pebble Beach, Carmel), and a short distance from Big Sur (1 hour) or San Francisco (90 minutes).

This is nothing compared to your work, Point Lobos State Park:

Re: Be my guest...

As I said in the first thread, very nice pictures indeed.. and shame on you for convincing me I don't need to upgrade from my D70 for a long time to come

Well, you also shot at the wrong time of day to get the most out of that scene..

Visual Poetry Alex. Mere words are inadequate.

Please keep posting!

Re: Amazing work. Bring on Chapter 4! -nt

Alex, your work puts National Geographics' photographers to shame. Your collection of African photos are hands down the best photos that I have ever seen. If you publish a book, I will have absolutely no hesitation to purchase it.

re: Hunting Lioness

I never realized before, how well camoflauged a lion could be. When I first looked at this picture, I wondered why you isolated that lone plant on the prarie next to that "rock". Yeah, that rock with the tail. LOL!!!

Absolutely enjoyed each image from your 3 posts. Hats off.

Re: Africa chapter 3 and last (imgs)

When your book is published, please let me know where I can send my $100.00 cheque to get it.

Your pictures are amazing and your talent puts you above!

Sincerily,

Michel

Re: Africa chapter 3 and last (imgs)

If this is what the D100 can do, I can't to see what the D200 will deliver.

I especially like the shot with the lion lurking in the grass. Great.
