Gears and Rust

This is a shot of a $20 pocket watch I bought on Amazon. I broke it apart and exposed it to white vinegar fumes for 24 hours and it caused this nice rust/corrosion.

Title
Wildflower Wasp
Description
I'm guessing this is a wasp on a wildflower outside of Carrizo Plain, CA. This guy stayed very still which allowed me to click off a bunch of shots. Bees usually hop very quickly from flower to flower making them hard to shoot.

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.

Mesquite Sunrise I
Description
The day before I took this shot of Death Valley's Mesquite Dunes there was a raging sand storm with wind gust up to 70 mph that lasted into the night. The next morning it was still very windy so I decided to head up the west side of the dunes to be upwind, and also so I could catch the blowing sand in the light coming from the east. It's a kind of weird comp but does convey the conditions fairly well.

Crops in the Wind
Description
I saw this scene while stopped at a stop light in Lakeview, CA so I pulled over and took a couple shots. It was extremely windy so there was no way to avoid the motion blur other than bump the ISO setting. But the exposure was still way too long. Even so, I like this shot so I'm just going to pretend that it was intentional and my artistic vision all along.

San Francisco Panorama
Description
I shot this pano from a famous vista called Twin Peaks.

You can see all the way down Market Street, City Hall, the Transamerica Pyramid, the Bay Bridge, AT&T Park and on and on. I'm definitely coming back to shoot this again.
