Breaking Dawn

Breaking Dawn

I should just title this image too many damn layers and masks. I lost count how many were used in this image but there were a lot. I shot this out of the window at work. Used a tripod and a delay shutter timer. Once I started to edit the trees turned muddy and I really wanted them sharper along with keeping the sky intact and not causing too much noise in the blue channel. Thats when the layers and…

The Morning Rush

The Morning Rush

I had to be at work early for a couple days so I used the time productively; taking pictures. This image was a pain to edit because of the light. With the blue hour light providing enough to illuminateĀ the landscape but causing deep shadows but also washing out the car lights which I wanted in the image. Not 100% happy with it but it gives it some drama and you get the light streaks of the headlights which I wanted….

Lost In A Book

Lost In A Book

I will admit this is an “experimental” edit. There are lots of layers and masks going on. I wanted the girl to be the focus of the image and it was difficult with all the other things going on in the image. Part of the problem was I had a tiny shooting window because I didn’t want her to look up while I was taking the photo so I didn’t have time to really get my focal length right. So…

Structural In Monochrome

Structural In Monochrome

I have been doing a lot of color so I like to mix in some monochrome every once in the while to make it visually different. The theme here is each of these has some sort of structural support in the image. The first one is a stretch because I really liked the reflection but there is some structural bits on the top of the reflection and the parking garage roof. Also, since I took the picture and I edited…

Flags Flying

Flags Flying

This is the USS Constellation. It’s now a tourist attraction docked in Baltimore Inner Harbor. No idea what the fee is to board it. One of these days I’ll eventually go aboard. My desire to avoid people from walking into my shots is rather strong. I don’t mind them if they fit the image but most of the time they don’t. I need to have a sign or announcement that states “Photographic Genius At Work” or something. That way they…

Docked

Docked

I like this image for some reason. You got the darker side balanced by the lighter side then with the blue contrasting everything. Seeing a US Coast Guard cutter docked in Baltimore isn’t unusual. I believe they have a base near by and Baltimore is a major port for the United States. Mostly cars coming in and out from the automotive plants in the area. There are also cruise ships embarking from the Port of Baltimore as well. Enjoy.

Geometric Nights

Geometric Nights

The triangle shaped glass structures gave me the name. I have no real idea what the building is. To be perfectly honest, I have no idea what the area is. It’s the Baltimore Inner Harbor but I forced myself to roam other areas just to get some new shots. To be perfectly honest this was a fine outing as I got a lot of great shots and with a minimum of gear. Just my Sony RX100M3 and either setting the…

Cobalt Blue

Cobalt Blue

Fairly obvious where the title came from. The image just felt more natural this way. The cobalt blue just made the other colors stand out. With the water looking the way it does from the shot being 3.2 seconds long it felt right. This one is also from Baltimore Inner Harbor. I want to say the condos/apartments across the way are apart of the Federal Hill neighborhood but I would not quote me on that as I have never ventured…

An Evening Stroll

An Evening Stroll

Another one from Baltimore. Still in the Inner Harbor area of Baltimore but in an area I have never really explored. I was just walking around with my camera and snappingĀ the images. I remember this shot because I was trying to shoot the bridge and was having a hard time using the bridge rail for stabilization. It’s a small suspension bridge so every time someone walked it would vibrate the whole bridge. This made it extremely difficult to keep the…

Nature Inside Out

Nature Inside Out

This is the National Aquarium located in the Baltimore Inner Harbor. I am assuming this is some sort of greenhouse type exhibit as I have never been in the place myself. It’s usually packed with people when I go and I tend to avoid crowds. They don’t understand that a photographic genius is at work and walk into my shots! I took this as the sky was starting to go to black or as near as possible in a major…
