A Photographer With a Drone Discovered a Stunning Glacier Scene Hidden in the Himalayas

Nowadays we’re all infected with modern technology, and when it comes to photography, drones have dramatically changed and aerial photography reached a new peak.

Drones give us the chance to take spectacular photos from a bird’s-eye views of landscapes, vast areas, risky terrains, and distant horizons. They are easy to use. But drones can easily reach dangerous landscapes and are specially designed for tracking and mapping natural hazards and risks.

One of the most scenic places in the world is the Himalayan mountain range. Covering around 2,400 km of land and water and is the home of rich biodiversity. The Himalayas are the third-biggest ice and snow deposit in the world, so there are about 15,000 glaciers there, many of them large, some smaller, and many have not been discovered yet.

And with the help of his drone, one photographer discovered a hidden treasure in the Himalayas.

David Kaszlikowski, a renowned Polish photographer with lots of awards in his name, specializes in mountain photography. His work consists of aerial and underwater photography, usually using drones. He was searching to find a perfect location to shoot his documentary, K2 Touching the Sky, and used his DJI Phantom Drone to search the area. He flew the drone above K2 Mountain, second-highest peak in the world. While looking for his ideal place, he passed through Concordia, the area below the mountain where the Baltoro and Godwin-Austen glaciers meet, he spotted something incredible. Kaszlikowski saw another new glacier which was surreal to him. This glacier was surrounded by a 65-feet wide water pool and it’s completely spectacular.

He said: “The place was special, making a very clean graphic frame. It was disappearing, melting, changing its form every day. It was quite obvious nobody will photograph it again like me; nobody will see it the same way the next season.” The sight that he witnessed was a completely unbelievable and spectacular sight. Both Kaszlikowski and a guide trekked to the location during nighttime so that they could capture its true beauty.

He used a Canon 5D Mark III on a tripod with a 30-second exposure, and he had the shutter open and used a LED to add the lighting for the photograph. The result was breathtaking. Kaszlikowski was spellbound and delighted of what he had accomplished.

And he also said that photographers should retain their style in their work and listen to their intuition. “Today, with digital and access to various advanced tools, it’s much easier to get decent results. But one thing never changes: You have to follow your vision.

This Artist Colorizes Old Photographs and They Look Totally Different

When we look at the old photos we notice they were all black and white grind. We ever thought we wish we could see them in colors. Or old movies that are made in the 30s-50s sometimes we have that slight imagination of how they looked in layering colors.

Since photography has always been an important part of human lives. Capturing the moment was also seen as a historical moment.

It’s a strange feeling seeing them in no colors, however, this issue is solved as this artist Sébastien de Oliveira is. Sébastien uses Photoshop to color old photographs and give them more life. The people in the photos look much more realistic and the pictures become so much more inviting. colorizing old photographs.

In one of his interviews, he stated: “I began 5 years ago to colorize some images and it became unstoppable. My three passions can combine themselves in colorization: painting, photography, and history. I spend lots of time finding images that tell a story. After spending some time on WW1 and WW2 images, now I am more interested in simple street views or peaceful ‘tranche de vie (pieces of everyday life) or colorizing portraits of actors from the golden age of Hollywood. I like to get into all the details that can be found in a photo and try to give my own interpretation

Sebastien de Oliveira told for the interview why he colorizes photos and how he got into it: “At the beginning, it was my hobby, but it is becoming a big part of my activity now, I am a photo retoucher and I work for the fashion industry in Paris. I have a background in Fine Arts studies so I paint and I take photos. My other passion was history, so I found a way to combine my three passions in one.”

The artist shares his strugle with colorizing photos: “I have a method so all the different stages are under control and not really difficult by themselves but the most difficult is always to choose a color for people’s clothing, because of the immensity of choice.
