Light Up Fall

Light Up Fall

I shot this in some small park in Baltimore when I was playing with my Sony RX10. The perspective is a bit weird but I wanted the focus on the light and the colors of the tree above it. I have been amazed at what I have been able to achieve with the Sony RX10. While I have the first version which means it doesn’t do 4K video I doubt the sensor has changed that much between the I and…

Buildings Of Baltimore

Buildings Of Baltimore

I could have titled this Oshiro 35mm F/2 lens review but that’s boring. Still, all the images were shot using the Oshiro 35mm F/2. I had purchased the lens because I needed a relatively fast 35mm lens for my Sony A7R. Since they don’t make E mount version I got the Nikon version and adapter for Sony E. With the lens in hand I set off to Baltimore on one of the hottest days of the year in August. I…

Float Along The Harbor

Float Along The Harbor

I have been shooting new stuff! In fact I have shot around 3000+ frames over the last 2 weekends. I have been in cities, national parks, municipal parks. I have climbed over rocks. Walked through streams. I have faced perils such as flesh eating chipmunks, carnivorous squirrels, blood sucking midges, rabid turtles, and quicksand like mud. All of the above is true. Mostly. This image I faced none of the above issues. I was on the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. 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…

Two From the Dome

Two From the Dome

This is Baltimore City Hall building which I just like for some reason. When I was in Baltimore last month I took a couple snaps of it just because I find it interesting. I used my Canon S100 for these shots. One of the issue with a 2/3″ sensor camera is that image degrades quickly. It’s just the nature of the sensor which is similar to a cell phone sensor. I still haven’t mastered the editing of these files but…

On The Harbor

On The Harbor

I didn’t take many photos while I was in Baltimore for the Baltimore Tattoo Convention. I contribute this to the fact that a tattoo gun jumped up and attacked my left clavicle and left me permanently scarred. The attack in question took 2.5 hours and by the time it was over the thought of carrying a camera bag on that shoulder which is my good one wasn’t going to happen so only a few images where shot. I did get…

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.
