I just got home from the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho. I have a variety of photographs to share. The first one is a panorama shot (five vertical exposures) under a full moon.
This is an Infrared HDR shot at Owl Creek.
I’ve got a night shot of the “cabin in the pines.”
And, some baby robins in a tree behind the cabin.
Here are two shots I like from my last trip to Monterey in June. It is amazing what you can do on a tripod after the sun goes down.
Both of these pictures were shot with a Circular Polarizer to reduce the light entering my lens, at f11.
It is amazing what you can do with two battery powered flash on location. We found an old railcar grave and took these pictures. We used two Nikon SB-800 flash units and triggered them with a Nikon SU-4. I’ve included a shot of the basic set-up as well.
This afternoon I got to shoot with Tom Bol, 4 skateboarders and 2 BMX bikers. Firing 1100WS, battery-powered, Elinchrom Rangers I was able to create some great effects.
Here are some shots of the young men lit with the same Rangers.
These are all HDR images from around Northern California and Reno. I have been on the road alot this Fall. I am looking forward to getting some editing time through the holidays. Merry Christmas everyone!
Ah, time is supposed to go slower in the summer, with the long days of light and warmth.
But, I feel like it is racing by, with all the pressures of a busy schedule and activities.
I hope you can take a moment here and there to see something in a new way, to smell the flowers, as they say.
Watch the light, it is both the magic in photography and your ticket to another place.
Waiting for a business meeting this week, I found some great old buildings in Berkeley, Ca.
Relics from a day gone by, painted churches, and the canvas of street artists.
Last night Dan and I shot around an almost deserted carnival in the parking lot at Gordon’s Photo. Using wide angle lenses and high ISO’s, some of the shots came out interesting. Here are a few.
