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…

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…

Secret Garden – Part 2

Secret Garden – Part 2

With a break from flowers with some architectural stuff I feel I can attempt some more flowers! So I return to my secret garden or the US National Botanical Gardens. Considering I was stuck behind a Chinese tour group with photo permits for tripods I guess its not that secret. I have encountered Chinese tour groups before in Thailand and they are serious about their gear. I was genuinely impressed by the tripod permits they had. They are not that…

Small. Delicate. Things.

Title explains what I think of all these images. Very pleased so far with how all the images have come out with the Tokina 24-200mm lens. It’s not a macro lens in any sense but it handled the flowers very well. Mix that in with the Sony A7R’s giant 36.4mp sensor I get more tone and depth than I am used to working with. This is the second batch out of the camera for flowers and I think I have…

These are the other flowers that I took when I did the Sunshine of Your Love images. I have no idea what these flowers are called and to be honest doesn’t really matter. They are flowers or weeds or something between them. I’m not a botanist and really don’t pretend to be otherwise. Like the other set of images I shot these using an Olympus OMD-EM1 and the Olympus 75mm 1.8 (150mm eq). Using tweaked settings and a ISO of…

Sunshine Of Your Love

Sunshine Of Your Love

  As usual; points if you get the reference. I am fighting of a potentially debilitating attack of man flu also known as a sinus infection because the weather has been a bit weird. Still, I managed to stop and shoot a small plot of flowers I have been driving past daily. Fairly obvious some of the flowers that were there. I used an Olympus EM1 which I recently changed some settings on to get better detail out of via…
