The always great Tim Navis updates from the Mojave Desert with some striking images. These would be great on the wall at large scale.
Usually when people shoot photos of a city or Las Vegas for that matter, it’s long exposures with light trails in a clean and typical fashion. Fellow photographer Tim Navis took a much more interesting approach and shot this beautiful set of simulated double-exposures on his Canon 5d Mark II.
I learned of Cole Rise via his Instagram (@colerise – some great stuff in there too) and was immediately stricken with the beauty or his photography work. But when I saw his full portfolio I was completely blown away. I’d compare his style to maybe a little more processed version of Tim Navis, skewed more towards landscapes. Really beautiful stuff.
I checked in on Tim Navis recently after way too long away and as usual, I was not disappointed. He’s posted a lot of new work much of which I see as a distinct evolution from his already stellar earlier output. A lot of it is taking on a very illustrated quality which I really enjoy. Also loving the new B&W stuff; that tennis court shot is incredible. I’m pretty sure he’s using a 5D MK2 these days, not quite certain though.
On a side note, I’ve been trying to get Tim to do a process post here. Maybe a little urging will do the trick.
Navis has been a long time commenter on this blog but I just recently stumbled onto his photography and was very impressed. The colors are just perfect; such a nice tone, feels modern yet still authentic. From the Flickr EXIF data it looks like he’s using a Canon EOS 30D. Tim, perhaps you’d like to elaborate on your equipment (lenses etc.) and methods in the comments?
