Overcast with a color blast

Shot just out front of Shane and Lara's house in pebble Beach. This spot had endless opportunities for shooting. It was a tough day with overcast skies  so the world turns a little grey. I decided to highlight and go with the grey tones and bring out some color in the appropriate spots.  Learning some new tricks with lens filters and blending effects. For this I am using a 3stop ND filter With a 2 stop grad. Post processed In Photomatix, Adobe RAW, Finalized in PSCS5 with Noise reduction from Define. Hope you enjoy

Back from Pebble Beach

The trip to Pebble was amazing. The coast in that area is absolutely perfect and the company was even better! I Had so many shots in mind headed up there that I knew I had to get but soon after getting into town I was pleasantly distracted by good times with good friends. Shane and Lara have really landed a special spot up there and it felt like home from the moment we landed. I will be working over the next few days to get the images together that I found interesting and posting as they are completed. So far i have a handful that I am working on but like this one the most right now. I enjoy...

Site up and running!

The site is up!!  Although still under construction for the next week or so. You will notice when you click the image under the DAILY photo blog that the image opens in your browser. Soon it will be in a snazzy light box like the rest of the site . I am very stoked with the site design and crazy speed for the size images I am using. This is all due to the amazing work Toad Cannon did for me on the site. Thank you so much for understanding my vision and making it better than I could have imagined! For those that follow my work, I will be updating the blog daily with images added daily as well....

The Casbah

For more of this shoot navigate under portfolio- people Last minute trip to the Casbah With Linda and a friend last night. Debated rather even wanted the camera with me and glad I did. Its so hard to work with the light in these small venues...its very low and difficult to get the shots. Walked in figured out the deal and shot here and there while I enjoyed the show. One moment lost in the music the next in the shot and finally into dancing with my beautiful little lady:) I need to keep these type of shoots up to get better and more comfortable this lighting. Not to mention I would like...

Abandoned Colorado

Driving south on the 85 today headed into Denver today I noticed a few abandoned properties. The light was gray and overcast sky's killed the op for some killer light rays to run through these structures. Of course I left my tripod in Denver not expecting to shoot today due to my flu caught from the outbreak monkey Linda. Either way bumped the ISO and handheld a few interesting scenes. Check under places and things for the goods :)

Playing with new filters

Snagged this shot last week at wind and sea beach. The sky was perfect that day and really wish I had remembered to charge the camera batteries before heading out to shoot for the day! Any who, was able to snag a few shots just before I lost power. I enjoy the rushing motion I can get in the water with this 3stop filter and will be playing around with some more of this effect in my beach landscapes. Hope you enjoy. Cant wait to get home to my editing station to start  working again!

Late last night

These building are always there just off my balcony here in downtown and I have never taken the time to walk over and observe them. I loved standing between them marveling at the symmetry and power of the structures racing to the clouds. This is their image to me

What a day!

Spent most of the day walking the streets looking for interesting subjects and studying the natural lighting for portrait work next week. In the process I meet  George McNally, A 61 yr old Vietnam vet  with an amazing sense of humor and a sack full of hilarious and wild stories. At the end of our conversation I asked him if I could have his image and this is what he gave me.
