The Devil's Cornfield

Couldn't resist stopping to get a picture here.


Road and Sky

Wide angle rocks!

This is HDR from a single RAW image.

New York New York Casino

The New York New York casino shot from across the intersection.

New lens for me. A Tokina 12-24 f/4. I love this thing. :)

Just a collection of images that have worked well with the OptikVerve copper filter. It's one of my favorite palettes, but most images simply don't work with it. From the look of these four, it would seem that the light of sunset or sunrise works best.

Rising Sun on Red Rock

Steve asked me to join him Saturday morning for a sunrise shoot at Red Rock Canyon.

I spent the thirty minutes prior to sunrise maneuvering around the desert looking for "the shot" and I finally settled on this spot. Its not exactly what I had hoped for, but it turned out okay, I think.

Lake Isabella (Lomo Fake)

What can I say... whenever I get an image that has good green or red color, I can't resist faking a lomo shot.

I got a new lens today, a 50mm f/1.8. I wanted to take a step back and approach photography the way I used to when I was a teenager. A zoom lens is nice, but a prime lens forces you to get up and move around. I am hoping the prime will improve my creative vision. (My gawd, I can't believe I just typed this.)

Anyway... fairly low light, so the DoF is shallower than I'd like. At the time, it didn't occur to me to increase the ISO.
