Two Views One Wheel

Two Views One Wheel

This is the skywheel at the National Harbor in Maryland. When I did this set I remember taking a lot of images of it because it is the most dominating feature. Lit up at night it was very cool so I took a ton of shots of it. Editing wise I’m not sure what I did. The one problem is that when I do pre-edits I forget what I did but I know I masked in a bunch of stuff….

A Splash Of Green

A Splash Of Green

This is the inside of the Gaylord National Hotel at National Harbor. I really like how the building is all open and you get light from all sorts of angles and the rooms look down into the atrium area. This is one of the first images I shot with my Voigtlander 15mm lens and you really get a wide angle without some of the distortion you normally do when you have a super wide lens. So I was able to…

Two On The Rocks

Two On The Rocks

These images were shot at the National Harbor and I just got around to editing them for. No idea why I never published them but I finally did. They seemed to work together so instead of doing one at a time I’ll post them together. Editing wise I went back to masking in layers and so on. I have been doing fairly clean edits so with these images I went a little wild and made the world look like I…

Baltimore Days

Baltimore Days

I shot this series as a preparation for my Panama trip where I am now. I wanted to see how the Nikon D810 performed in blazing afternoon sun. In addition I wanted to see how I performed in the blazing afternoon sun while carrying the “beast” as someone called it. The Nikon performed better than I did before I tapped out and had a beer after a few hours of lugging it around. I normally take my Sony A7R on…

Flying High Again – Part 2

Flying High Again – Part 2

As this post goes live I will be in a car heading to the airport to catch a flight out to Panama. It seemed appropriate to post these images today since I’ll be among the clouds again. This set of images focuses mainly on the ground and not the clouds. Shooting the ground from a plane is a lot easier because you have more contrast than clouds. The downside is you are going to notice motion blur just because you…

Portland Roses – Part 2

Portland Roses – Part 2

This is the rest of the roses from Portland, Oregon that I shot. I wish the weather was better when I was out there visiting but the shots I got were pretty good and I did enjoy visiting the city. Would have loved to see the Japanese Gardens that were next to the Rose Garden but I was out of time and I had a plane to catch to San Diego. I also want to say that this is the…

Around Matlacha – Part 2

Around Matlacha – Part 2

This will wrap up the Matlacha series. I never would have guess a funky little town located on the Florida Gulf would have generated so much interest but it did. If you are itching to visit I highly recommend a weekday versus a weekend if you are going for photography and towards the winter if you can. It’s a wee bit steamy in the summer time as I can attest. These images are more of the views you get around…

Portland Roses – Part 1

Portland Roses – Part 1

It’s my Mom’s birthday today. She would be the one that comments everyday on every post. She often times mentions that I should have more flowers. I often respond offline that I am not a flower photographer. They were great when I first started in photography but not so much now. I periodically take pictures of them and throw them up on the site to make her happy. It it with great fanfare that I held these images back from…

Upon Reflection

Upon Reflection

This series was shot while I was at Lakes Regional Park in Fort Myers, Florida. When I went there I was hoping to get sunset type photos but the trees were blocking my view of the sun which I wasn’t used to because I had been shooting along the river. With the light dropping and not getting sunsets I adapted and started to shoot the islandsĀ and their reflections on the water. It turned out to be one of the longer…

Flying High Again – Part 1

Flying High Again – Part 1

This series was shot on my return from Fort Myers to Washington DC. I had upgraded my ticket to a Premium Seat for extra leg room. I’m not tall at all but I like boarding early so I make sure my camera bag get into the overhead. It’s worth it to know my gear is safe. With my upgrade I lucked out and had a whole row to myself! I’m normally an aisle type of guy as I like to…
