Columbia Icefield Gigapixel Project’s 2013 newletter

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

Well, I believe I found the last place I’ll use to share newsletters.

The layout and readability of Issuu’s PDF conversion is nice.

So here is an attempt at using their embed code.

 

 

I am planning on getting funding for this next season of shooting…..but, you never know….

 

I have also added a link to my Issuu profile in the friendly links section.

Columbia Icefield Gigapixel Project Annual 2013

I just created a permanent Page on my site for the CIGP 2013 Annual Newsletter.   However, it’s slightly different than the one that I sent in emails and posted JPGs of the PDF files earlier.  This one will gradually grow with media content as it is developed during the Winter.  Also, the image quality is better than the JPG post earlier.   Please check back for continued enhancements of the Newsletter page.  I will also do my best to make a blog post whenever I update that page.

For those of you who caught the Panographers episode, I apologize for the technical difficulties that chopped up my presentation.

Please remember you can custom order prints by contacting me directly.  The base price for panoramic prints is $45.  The base price for metal and Plywerk prints is $100.   Shipping is determined on a case by case basis.

I was recently and pleasantly surprised by a  customer’s comment after a holiday print purchase:

It came with a white boarder.  It was just perfect!  I sent it in for a custom frame already and it’s scheduled to be done a couple days before Christmas and I even made room for a name plate listing you as the photographer and name of the print :)  I’m super excited to get it back!  I’ll send you a copy of the completed project in a couple weeks :)
Thanks again for all your help in making this gift possible.
                                                                                                                                                        -Rechelle

However, if you want to directly support the CIGP you can also send funds directly to be used specifically for image acquisition this next year.

The only non-iPhone shot I got today while out on Silver Star Mountain today.    It was a chilly one, if I had more time I would have gone for a pano with the GigaPan.  Another time perhaps.

 

Excited for my webmaster to get this restructuring of my site complete.  I thank him for the work he does with the themes on this site.  We will be going with a lighter theme soon.

 

Don’t forgot to contact me directly for any prints of my photos.

 

Here’s some older photos to enjoy:

Now 2012 it got put here in the stairwell to the Raven’s Nest at Timberline Lodge:

Thank you to my Wife for clicking the shutter...however, it's a bit difficult to pre-focus at f/2.8 when you're not in the frame.  Thank you to my Grandpa for the much taller tripod!

Well, that went to random places…..

A Hidden Gem

Shot with 400mm on Canon 40D during the Gigapixel capture from Parker Ridge of Saskatchewan Glacier: Session two of the CIGP

The joy of shooting Gigapixel Imagery is going back through the files and finding little landscape images that perform well outside the much larger pano.  

Here’s a  link to the GigaPan version.  It still has stitching errors where the mountain’s meet the sky.  Due to the lack of motivation to make this one exact.  The main glacier below is stitched well, but from an artistic perspective this pano won’t do well as a print.   Next year I’ll get a wider field of view.  The inconsistent sun and rain cut this pano short.  So I focused purely on a scientific capture.

I’ve also added videos to my two accounts below, the vimeo has more content than the youtube.  Down the road I plan to feed both simultaneously.
