The Weekly Photo and Jasper eBook Release – May 16, 2011

The photo below is from one of the iconic photography locations in Jasper National Park. This image was taken from Patricia Lake looking towards Pyramid Mountain at sunrise. I used a Canon 24mm tilt-shift lens and shifted the lens to the left and then to the right to make two photos which I then merged into one panoramic image using photo merge in Photoshop. I also used a Singh-Ray LB warming polarizer to darken the sky and saturate colours and a Singh-Ray 2-stop hard-edge grad to hold back exposure in the peaks and the sky.

I am also happy to announce that my latest eBook, Jasper National Park – All Four Seasons from the How to Photograph the Canadian Rockies website is now ready for download. This eBook is an updated and expanded version of the Jasper National Park chapter in my printed book How to Photograph the Canadian Rockies. The new eBook is 181 pages long with detailed descriptions of 60 locations and illustrated with 114 images. If you want to get to the best locations in the right light in any seasons in Jasper, then this eBook is the perfect solution! Thanks to Stephen Desroches for his fine work designing the eBook and to Samantha Chrysanthou for her careful editing.

And stay tuned for another release coming up very soon: The Icefields Parkway – Wildlife Edition by John Marriott

    Hi Darwin,
    Bought the Jasper eBook this morning and am sat in Vancouver airport reading it now waiting for my flight to Calgary. Can not wait to use your many fantastic locations and tips for Jasper, the book looks and reads as brilliantly as the Icefields Parkway publications. Thank you!!!
    Any chance of the Banff eBook coming out in the next few days?

  3. Awesome photograph Darwin. Pyramid Mountain is my favorite mountain in the rockies. It’s just so jagged and rough. You mentioned that you only took two photos to stitch? Why not three? I should of taken a video when you gave us that lecture on how to use tilt shift lenses on your tour….. I forgot a few things. Do you have a tilt shift ebook coming out anytime? Thanks


    • Stephane, you only need two photos (the left shift and the right shift) to make the photo. The Tilt-Shift eBook should be out in June (I hope!). Those eBooks take a long time to write-up!
