Title
Liberty School
Description
I got the idea on how to do this still life from an old British photog named Phillip McCordall. He has a bunch of how-to videos on YouTube and it was this one that inspired me. I used a Canon 580EX speedlite on 1/16th power in a 24x24 soft box facing straight down. Two white foam core boards we positioned on either side and two black boards were used to cover up most of the white boards so only skinny white reflections are seen on the side of the glass (I used cranberry juice in the glass BTW). I took another exposure where I moved a white board in front of the bottle to highlight the label then composited that into the final image.

Fuzzy Grass at Alkali Pond
Description
I always visit Alkali Pond every time I'm in the Eastern Sierras. The fuzzy grass on the edge of the pond looked interesting to me - almost like it was manicured.

Seeds of Life
Description
Another shot from San Jacinto Wildlife Area. I saw this dry creek bed and thought it would make a nice lead-in. The new grass (or whatever it is) also looked great. So I started shooting this in overcast light but the sun peeked in below the clouds and showered this area with this awesome light.

Title
Rainbow Falls and Snow
Description
This shot of Rainbow Falls was made with three exposures (-1, 0, +1) and it's my first attempt at HDR. The light was so harsh and contrasty that I couldn't get a good result with a single shot so I figured I would try it with three.

Description
Taken Dec 23, 2007 at Garrapata State Park near Carmel, CA. I used an 81B and two polarizers to slow the exposure to around 30 sec. By stacking two polarizers I was able to get dramatic variations between blue and red hues when turning the filter.

Taken (06/23/01) at Hearst State Beach in San Simeon CA, down highway 1 from Hearst Castle well after sunset. The beach was closed for repairs but I ignored the signs and shot there anyway. I had taken shots of this pier before and wanted to reshoot it. Shortly after I took this I was chased off by the police, but at least I got the shots I wanted.
