Exclusive: Justin shares photography tips, tricks and more with Amvona

This is the last part of our interview with Justin Kraemer, winner of Bing photography contest 2009-2010. Justin likes shooting ‘surreal architectural landscapes’. And it’s true his landscapes are very unique and dreamlike. He loves shooting HDR photos of cities and aims to learn more so that he can build on and expand his photographic skills.

He lists many talented photographers as his favorite – most of them have a portfolio on Flickr. In our Q & A session when asked who his favorite photographer was, Justin exclaimed that,”I don’t really have a favorite big named “pro” photographer. I do however follow the work of several very creative and talented people on Flickr. Aaron Reed, Jeff Engelhardt, Clay.Wells, Surrealize, Doug Van Kampen, and Fresnatic are a few of my favorites.” These people are definitely very talented. You can view their portfolios by clicking on their names. Justin uses Photomatix, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom to edit and combine his photographs. When asked about his favorite editing software he stated that,”Because I shoot a lot of HDR photographs, I use a program named Photomatix to process and combine the images. I also use Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom to make adjustments during the post processing of all of my photos.”

Justin lists the following 3 photographs as his favorite from his portfolio:

“This one of the Mukilteo Lighthouse in Mukilteo Washington is both a personal and fan favorite. It is my most purchased photo, and I always like looking at it because it contains the Lighthouse, the ferry, and the beautiful colors of the sunset.(Justin Kraemer 2010)

“I also really like this one of Bell Harbor on Seattle’s Waterfront. The rooftop balcony at Pier 66 in Seattle is a great place to take photos, because it offers a tremendous view of downtown Seattle, the waterfront area, and the Port of Seattle.” (Justin Kraemer 2010)

“I also really like this one of Snoqualmie Falls taken this winter during a really cold stretch that lasted about two weeks. During this two week stretch, the temperatures never got above freezing and a big section of the waterfalls froze creating this very cool icy look on the rocks surrounding the falls.” (Justin Kraemer 2010)
