In the Moss by Steve Janosik

Bar Harbor, Maine. The bed of moss felt like a spongy box spring as I shifted around to get a few shots like this one. It was a refreshing Spring morning.

Starry night skies over California hills.

Went out for a late night drive with Vee to catch the meteor shower. I didn’t see any meteors, but I managed to catch this night shot. The illumination of the lower clouds by the lights of the city contrast nicely with the stars above.

Saguaro Cactus with a Mountain Backdrop (Saguaro National Park) by Mark Stevens
Via Flickr:
One of many stops along the Cactus Forest Scenic Loop Drive. What I was trying to find for this image was that point that just looked across this desert landscape, but I knew I’d need a high point along the road to capture that. My idea was to angle my camera slightly downward, raising the desert floor above the middle before it came to the mountains. The far-off peaks would then be higher in the image and allow for a more complete vista-like view.

Gearing Up

Before the shoot, comes the prep. Gearing up for a 3 camera shoot, utilizing an all Nikon lineup: D800e, D600 and D7000. All cameras are set to match each other (picture style, white balance, and movie settings). The Nikon D800e and D600 have 1.5x crop mode, so if I want to match the focal length of the D7000’s DX crop, I can.
