So often, we see videos of photographers sharing about the creation of their images after the fact.  While this is great for presenting the information in a more detailed and refined fashion, it’s easy to lose some of the uniqueness that went into the whole process.

Photographer Thomas Heaton, on a recent trip to Iceland, filmed his process in real time.  In the video, he gives us a true glimpse behind the lens, discussing the use of polarizers, neutral density filters, and delayed exposure to create a series of stunning images from the beautiful landscape.

One of the points I found the most interesting was from a photo of the sandy beach.  Most times we think of using polarized filters to bring out the detail of the sky.  But, in this image, Thomas used the filter to remove the glare from the wet sand, recovering valuable details and nuances of the scene in-camera without post-processing.
