Restaurant On The Bay

Restaurant On The Bay

I had to go find a photo I took a few years ago so I was digging through my archives. I found some photos I never published. I have no reason for not editing them other than I guess I didn’t have the skills back then. My editing from when I started to where I am now is two different worlds. I never used Photoshop, I didn’t have a Wacom tablet, I had no idea what layer masks were, and…

Long Walk Off A Short Pier

Long Walk Off A Short Pier

I have been working in color too much. I knew I had to go monochrome soon. There is something compelling about monochrome landscape images. When dealing with lots of textures like this image it really draws it out. This is the pier that the ferry’s dock on when you arrive to Coronado Island in San Diego. I took this as I was walking back to catch my ferry from the island back to the “mainland”. While there is some falloff the shot was…

Bay Sky

Bay Sky

This was on the water taxi back from Coronado Island. While it was sunny out, the camera metered on the dark area. The Sony RX100M3 has a different way of spot metering then my Olympus cameras so there is a learning curve. Still, I liked how it came out. The way the sky is swirling and causes the land elements to be silhouetted. The light coming in from the left just adds to the drama of the image. Enjoy

This was shot from Coronado Island which is a view of San Diego I have never seen before. I really liked how the buildings were reflecting off the water. I didn’t use the usual landscape format to give the image a sense of length. I was shooting is 3×2 just for a bit of change up. To get the details out of the image I did another composite or about 8 total images. I am discovering that prefer doing a…

Reading Palms

Reading Palms

I was stumped for a title for this post until it hit me while I was editing. Where I live we don’t have a lot of palm trees. To be honest, we don’t have any until you go further south and I consider them poor imitations of a proper palm tree. I guess I have spent too much time in the tropics to get fooled by real imitation palm trees or something (yes I know what I just typed). So…

Solitude

Solitude

I know I said I was going to do more than one image in a series but this one works alone just because of the person just sitting there. I was out on some lobster pier I think and this guy was just sitting there thinking and looking out to the bridge going over to Cornado and I snapped the image. I knew it was going to be black and white the minute I took it and I gave it…
