Flower Squares – Part Two

Flower Squares – Part Two

Here are the second half of the flowers I published yesterday. These were all taken in Portland, Oregon at the public Rose Garden. If it wasn’t for people I worked with wanting to get there I doubt I would have ever taken the photos. There is a bit of a story behind editing these images. It almost didn’t happen. My hands were hurting from lugging around my tripod and Nikon D810 earlier in the day. While it’s not super cold,…

Flower Squares – Part One

Flower Squares – Part One

I have been getting requests for flowers from my Mom almost daily. Since she reads and comments daily I’ll humor her not for just one day but two! The whole flower thing started when I was a new at photography. I had no real clue what I was doing. If I was outside it was flowers. If I was inside it was my cat. Over the years my photography got better and I realized I hated flowers because I learned…

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…

Stormy Skies Over the Willamette River

Stormy Skies Over the Willamette River

This is another from Portland, Oregon. I used my 15mm Voigtlander that I got for my Sony A7R that now comes in a native FE mount so no adapter. This is the widest lens I ever owned and I really like the way it keeps distortion to a minimum. The newest Lightroom update even has a lens profile for it. I ¬†did this one in HDR because it’s about the sky. It’s just cool looking the way it swirls over…

Washed Ashore

Washed Ashore

I saw these logs when I took a path down towards the Willamette River in Portland. No idea how high the river gets but assume these were logs and stuff were washed ashore when the river was high from rain. I shot these with my Olympus TG-4 since it was far more maneuverable than my Sony A7R that was mounted on a tripod. I could climb on the rocks to get to the angles I was looking for instead of…

Portland Flowers

Portland Flowers

Not feeling much like editing from a lot of things coming at me I go with the one thing I can edit in my sleep, flowers. So I present just some of the images I shot of flowers while I was in Portland. These were taken while we were waiting for a table at the restaurant called Pok Pok in Portland. They had a cool system where they just send a text to your phone when your table is ready….

Nestled In The Hills

Nestled In The Hills

This is a Portland shot from my balcony in my hotel room. While my view looks ok I was also zoomed out on a 240mm lens. Plus a wee bit of cropping to get some of the extraneous bits out that would ruin the illusion. No idea why I like the image. I did think it was cool with all the giant pine trees in Portland and people with houses built within them. These were up on a big hill…

This Way To Seattle

This Way To Seattle

No idea the name of the bridge. I know there are only a few you can drive across the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. I shot this a little after 7 in the morning I think but there was hardly any sun showing so I knew it was going to be in monochrome. As for the title of the image, the sign says Seattle. Did the usual standard editing and then used Tonality CK for my monochrome conversion. I have…

Wave Crashing In

Wave Crashing In

I didn’t plan on showing any of the images I shot in Portland, Oregon just yet I really liked this one so I went ahead and edited it. This is a shot of some wake coming on on the¬†Willamette River here in Portland. I was out doing a sunrise shoot (no sun). You get very easy access to the river and I was down right on the water. I had my Olympus TG-4 which is waterproof so I just put…
