South Carolina – Sunrise Attempt

After I was pretty successful taking sunrise picture in Myrtle Beach last year, I was looking forward to using some of my new gear when I went back this year. The toughest part of sunrise pictures is you really have no idea what you are going to get until you are out there. Clouds are your best friend, but as you walk out in pitch black, last night’s weather forecast only gives you a fuzzy idea of what you are […]

Day 3 – Lyon to Grenoble

This was to be my easiest drive. A quick 3hrs to Grenoble, stopping by one location then taking a pretty cool road that hung over a cliff. I woke up without setting an alarm, had breakfast and left the city when I was ready. The GPS had been a little weird yesterday, so I just punched in the first location and went directly there without a pre-defined route. The new route took me close to Grenoble before heading west towards […]

Summer

Cottage Country

A close friend of mine has yearly get togethers up north. It usually happens late August and signals the end of summer. Due to his wedding in  September in France (You should know about it by now), it was moved to earlier. The previous year I had just bought my Canon T1i and had  a blast fooling around with night shots. I figured out I would try to push the camera’s high ISO to the max. I haven’t been extremely […]

Seattle

I got the opportunity to go to Seattle last week for a short weekend. I had Saturday free and knew that I wanted to go out and take pictures. After doing a little research, I decided I would go into the mountains in the morning and catch the sunrise, and then go to the coast in the afternoon. My assumptions on how much time it would take was greatly under-calculated and it took me forever. The morning shoot was ok. […]

Vermont Trip – Part II

As we drove on and stopped in a few locations, I still found that I was rushing my shots. I was impressed with how Brad took his time and had more of a mellow view of things. We ended up finding a covered bridge that was interesting and we stopped for awhile. The season was still causing issues and the shots around the bridge really weren’t all that spectacular. I was able to get one shot that was decent, but […]

Main Event

Cap Saint Jacques – Sunset Photoshoot

Around 5pm one Saturday night, I found myself dropping the kids off at their grandparents’ house. I had packed my camera in the car since the sky looked like it might provide a good sunset. Since I had my new Tokina 11-16mm with me, I was eager to try it out at Cap Saint Jacques. I had succeeded in getting one decent sunset there, and was interested in using the new wide angle to get a better one. When I […]

Pier - Part IV - Sunrise

Beautiful Carolina – Sunrise Photoshoot

I woke up at 5:30 with the sun rising at 6:30. I grabbed my bag and tripod and started to walk down the beach as the horizon started to lighten. I probably should have gone out a little earlier, but I rushed down the beach and got there in time. I had picked a fantastic day to go out. There were wisps of clouds, and I knew they would pick up the color nicely. I started shooting as light started […]

Test Shot - Long Exposure and ND Filters

Long Exposure & ND Filters

When I bought my new lens, I was cross-sold a filter set. It had a UV and Polarizer filter, but the one I was most excited about was the ND filter. I wanted to work with ND filters for a while, and I’ll write an article about them when I get a chance. What I have is a 0.6 filter which according to what I read gets me 2 stops of fun. Trying to get at least one good sunset […]
