Update from our October Fall Color expedition
There are two types of image stacking methods that are popular today. "Focus stacking" is used to extend the depth of field. Whereas "exposure stacking" can be used to extend the apparent exposure time. This post is intended to be a quick introduction to the latter.
Note: Some would say there is a third type called "action sequencing" but we consider that to be somewhat distinct from focus and exposure stacking. At least for our purposes.
When to use exposure stacking
Founded in 1849, Knights Ferry features ruins of the Tulloch Flour Mill and the longest covered bridge west of the Mississippi. It is located just off of highway 120/108 about 40 miles east of Modesto on the Stanislaus River. The Tulloch Mill site and the covered bridge are part of the Knights Ferry Recreation Area, managed by the Bureau of Land Management.

Happy to share with you an interview with Jo Ann and me that was published yesterday at "Exhibitions Without Walls". We were surprised and honored to have been asked for the interview by Ed Wedman of EWW last month. The link below is the cover page. The interview is linked to below the images that appear on that page.

This image of Weston Beach at Point Lobos is from our Still Motion Abstract Series. The goal here was to create an abstract image yet still capture the feel of the surf, colors and textures of this wonderful morning on the California Coast.
If you are interested in learning more about some of our techniques we are planning several workshops for 2017. Please sign-up for our mailing list to stay informed.
This image, made in 2016 at Point Lobos, is from our Still Motion project. The exposure was approximately 2 minutes in the middle of the afternoon through filtered sunlight. What caught our attention was the way the surf was breaking, filling and swirling into the gap in these rocks in the mid intertidal zone. The goal being to represent all that motion in a still image rather than a video or time-lapse.
Because we plan to travel to many areas where cell phone coverage will be limited or nonexistent we have added a Delorme InReach Explorer satellite emergency communicator to our new Toyota 4Runner Trail that we've fondly named "Black Beauty". With it, we now have two-way satellite communications at all times.
We are please to announce the Aiello Studios' Photographic Expeditionary Group and you are invited to participate! The expeditions will essentially be meet-ups at various locations throughout the West that we wish to photograph. The concept is very simple. If you would like to photograph any of the same areas and are available you are invited to join us.
Jo Ann and George Aiello are a husband and wife creative team that have been collaborating for over 40 years. We invite you to browse and participate on our site.
We would love to hear from you. Use the button below to reach out to us.
