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…

5 Airports and 3 Airlines Later

5 Airports and 3 Airlines Later

With my recent travels to the West Coast I had to do some creative flying to get to the various destinations in my itinerary. I flew out of Regan National Airport, laidover in Chicago, flew in and out of Portland, Oregon, in and out in San Diego, and then landed in Baltimore when I got back home. While I didn’t get pictures of all the stops I got a enough with Chicago getting the bulk of the images shot since…

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

Bay Reflections

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…

Vertical Monochrome

Vertical Monochrome

Still feel like editing building images in monochromatic. Just like how they look. These images were shot in San Diego, California and Jomtien, Thailand. Two different cameras were used, the departed Fuji X100S and my Olympus EM1. Some of the EM1 images got a bit noisy but I left it. Gives it a bit of a film grain feel.
