Photographers are constantly in search of unique ways of representing frequently photographed subjects, and adventure photographer Dan Bailey is no exception. Now that winter has arrived, he has begun photographing the mountains of Alaska, not from the ground or by using a drone but from the cockpit of his small Cessna bush plane.
In his recent article, Dan explains that the lighting conditions are more dramatic in the winter due to the combination of heavy snow and a low winter sun. To take his images, he currently uses the Fujifilm X-T2, a combination of primes including the XF 35mm f/2, 56mm f/1.2 and 90mm f/2, and occasionally a zoom such as the XF 50-140mm f/2.8. He mostly uses the Velvia film simulation mode because it tends to suit these types of scenes.
