Winery Dog

This was a pretty majestic dog. Especially the fur – it seemed to shine in the light. I called the dog over into the direct sunlight, and after petting it for a minute he started to drink from the fountain on the patio. That’s when I got this shot.

Nikon D700, 1/2000th at f2.8, ISO 800 at 40 mm. It’s a pretty shallow depth of field, so I kept close focus on the eyes and shot while he looked over at my brother Marcus sitting next to me.

Sunrise Sunbeams

Early morning flights. Bleech. The only good part is that you see a part of the day that normally is missed – early morning sunrise.

Nikon D700, 1/320th at f8, ISO 200, 56mm on the 24-70. Through the window of a 737 courtesy of Southwest. That’s an airplane window I’m shooting through!

Lou - Wow Beau, that is definitely pretty awesome! You see a good amount of airplane window shots, but that’s definitely epic. 🙂

Josh

Josh stayed as still as possible while I did the long exposure in manual mode with the remote shutter release. He’s smoking a cigarette – that’s the light trails hovering around his face. We definitely used the tripod on this one.

Post process in Lightroom – added black fill and vignette, and changed to black and white.

30 second exposure at f16, ISO 1600.

Tunnel

This tunnel is a single lane going across a wide expanse near the golden gate bridge. Thanks to Phil Hess for the idea, he had been wanting to shoot this one for a while. It’s got a light that allows traffic to come from each end, taking turns so no one has a head on. It’s a pretty interesting area to photograph.

Nikon D700 24-70 1 second at f22 ISO 1600. Full manual mode. There were some Lightroom adjustments made here, nothing too dramatic.

Have a great week everyone!

Roof

The California Academy of Science Museumis a great place for photography. There’s a bunch of aquariums, a 4 story rainforest, and some cool displays. This photo is of the rooftop of the museum – a living breathing organism. There are air vents for the building that open electronically by actuator, and an irrigation system. It helps insulate the building and reduces heating/cooling costs. I hear it’s beautiful in the spring too, actually flowering. I thought it looked more like a field than a rooftop!

 

1/1000th at f11, ISO400, 24-70 on the D700 at 36 mm. No strobe. Liberal use of the sliders in LR2. I like the lines in this photo, the curves of the hill and the round portals on the rooftop.
