Description By the time we got to Tioga Lake in Yosemite National Park, it was past three and mid-afternoon sun wasn't exactly providing the best lighting conditions. I have a fun new filter in my bag ready to solve that problem though! A 10-stop ND filter. Woah, nelly.This is a 30-second exposure in broad daylight!A 10-stop neutral density filter is extreme. It's just like a normal neutral density filter, but a black hole-esque monster that reduces the amount of light reaching the camera sensor by 1000x. It's insane. Even in the brightest light, seeing through the viewfinder is all but impossible so I had to compose the shot, then screw on my filter.I shot a 30-second exposure in broad daylight! The result is a uniquely beautiful view of Yosemite. A phantasmic dream of a landscape, really. This photograph is 'straight out of the box' as they say, with minor edits to tidy up a bit.I hope you like it as much as I do!
Mark Cullen, Portland, Oregon Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement I am so lucky to have grown up with miles of woods to play in behind my house. Oh, how I explored the land and fell in love with nature. By the time my parents bought me my first camera, I was more than ready to take the leap into landscape photography.
I remember showing my Dad one of my first ever pictures of a sunset from those woods. He held it for a while, studied it and proclaimed, "Hey! You're pretty good!" And from that day forward, I was a photographer.
Since those days, I've moved around a bit and spent time in Minnesota, North Carolina, and for the past ten years, Oregon. My wife and I live in Portland with our easy to leave for two days cat, Oliver.
I'm lucky to live a life of adventure and exploration. It's not all sunshine and roses but I can't help but find beauty in nearly everything. My photography is about capturing that beauty, then presenting it how I hold the moment in my mind.
Each of these photographs are very special to me and it makes me immensely proud to share them with you. Thank you for looking at my art and enjoy your day.
