Lima, Peru, 2011/04/28 - PeruPhotoTours has teamed up with Cognisys, Inc. to ensure that tour participants come back from the jungle with incredibly detailed images of insects, hummingbirds, frogs, and other rainforest creatures - PeruPhotoTours.com.
Photography tours to the Peruvian rainforest capture the hidden world of the Amazon with high resolution images. PeruPhotoTours has teamed up with Cognisys Inc. to ensure that tour participants come back from the jungle with incredibly detailed images of insects, hummingbirds, frogs, and other rainforest creatures.
The rainforests of the Peruvian Amazon harbor some of the highest biodiversity on the planet. However, much of this jungle life is composed of small insects, amphibians, birds, and other creatures whose tiny stature poses challenges to detailed photography. Technology available from Cognisys Inc. removes such barriers to capturing the exquisite nature of bizarre Amazonian wildlife.
Movements too fast to see with the human eye are captured with the StopShot flash trigger device developed by Cognisys Inc. Even movements as quick as the buzzing wings of jewel-like insects and glittering rainforest hummingbirds are brought to a standstill when StopShot is used with a cross beam sensor.
To document the texture and fine details of iridescent beetles, bird feathers, orchids, and other natural works of art, Cognisys’ StackShot device is employed. This robotic focus stacking tool tool is used in conjunction with a macro lens to take multiple shots of differently focused sections of the subject. These images are then combined with focus stacking software to generate one, highly detailed, in-depth photo of incredibly high resolution and depth of field.
PeruPhotoTours is providing all participants of its Tambopata rainforest photography tours with such Cognisys technology as well as other photography equipment because they believe that everyone travelling to Peru should have the opportunity to document their trip of a lifetime with professional grade photography.
“Anyone experiencing the intricacies and wonders of the Peruvian Amazon deserves the chance to properly document it with high quality images. However, the problem for the average tourist has always been the high cost for equipment needed to do the Amazon jungle justice,” said Jeff Cremer, the president of PeruPhotoTours. “Our program combines science, nature and technology to create art and Cognisys Inc. fits this model perfectly. Their technology will help tour participants get amazing images that easily rival those of professional photographers.”
In addition to helping tour participants document biological treasures of the Peruvian Amazon with Cognisys Inc. technology, PeruPhotoTours also provides clients with other top of the line photography equipment, workshops that teach them how to use it, and demonstrate how a book can be made that showcases their work.
Peru Photo Tours (peruphototours.com) provides all-inclusive photography tours in the Peruvian Amazon and other parts of Peru. Clients have access to professional grade photography equipment and are taught how to combine science, nature and technology to create art.
