Ethereal Luminance by ScottMcCook

Hey Guys 🙂

We’ve been back just on 3 weeks now since our visit to the South Island of New Zealand. We had such a blast there photographing and just enjoying time away from work.

This is Mt Cook captured from the Hooker Valley in new Zealand.

The first edit I did on this particular image was from my alienware 18 while on location in New Zealand. Security check point staff still laugh everytime I get that laptop out to put in the tray for scanning, it barely even fits! It’s heavy but its awesome in regards to editing power and the screen is nice and big, many photographers I know don’t like editing on the run and I agree in a way, for me though it is important to begin an edit if i’m still buzzing from the experience, I tend to find that mood will be injected into the image as I process, so i’ll normally do an initial edit on location and then tidy it up at home.

Sometimes that’s harder than it sounds because I wonder where my wacky brain was when I was editing on location 😉 I might have some great ideas in regards to vision while editing in the field but they tend not to be too tidy 😉

So I had great pleasure in going back to this and giving it a bit more love 🙂
