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.
The full moon over the ocean, near the Sutro Baths in San Francisco.
Although I’ve been to this location previously, this was the first time I’d ever attempted to catch the moonset. I spent a few hours here just taking it in through different perspectives and locations - this upload will be the first of many.
Massive multi-part HDR panorama of Yosemite and Half Dome
I’ve been sitting on this shot of Yosemite for a few years, never getting around to editing it. Honestly, I’m glad I waited. A few years ago, I would never have been able to do it justice. The processing techniques, as well as the artistic vision, were simply out of my reach.
I have improved as a photographer since then, but more importantly, I’ve improved as an artist. I can’t go back in time to retake my old photos, but I can use everything I’ve learned to turn them into something greater.
This one is a 6 part panorama with selective HDR data from 54 exposures.
I first heard of this site when I was contacted by one of their authors, Emily Hildebrand, a few weeks ago about having some of my work featured there. The site seems like a great place to discover interesting photography, and I’d recommend checking it out.
