Photo Of The Day : “Moon Over Stanford”

This is another photo from the Trey Ratcliff (Stuck In Customs) photo walk at Stanford University on August 11, 2011. This was an amazing event, with over 200 photographers! All organized through my new obsession, Google+. This was the first Google+ Flash mob, and may have been a world record for a photo walk. Although Trey thinks it may have been 5 or 10 people shy of his Austin Photowalk. Thank you Bay Area traffic!

You can view the rest of the photos I took on my Google+ album at https://plus.google.com/photos/106719979779567208605/albums/5640125127238409201

Also, below the photo I took, is a group photo taken by Peter Adams (https://plus.google.com/106983800549406471589/posts)

If you are not on Google+ and you love photography, you NEED to be. It’s a great place for photographers to interact and share their work. Even if you are not a photographer, it is a great place to find new photographers. You need an invite though, but I have plenty to send! (You must add me to your circle though 🙂


Photo Of The Day : “Fireball Bridge”

The couple for the wedding I am shooting next week needed some last minute photographs, primarily one to print and display at their post ceremony reception. So as the ever so helpful photographer I am, I offered to help take a new one and expedite it. Since it was last minute, I just decided to take them up to the Marin Headlands and get the standard couple over the bridge photograph, although I think these are much better. I may post one later!

But while up there, the sun was setting and the sky was phenomenal. A typical Bay Area winter day. So I decided to work for myself for a split second, and captured this 5 exposure HDR.

Daily Photo: “Bridge To Forever”

This is the second landscape photo I took at the Risse-Savage wedding on August 7th. The wedding was at Martis Camp in Truckee, CA. It is an amazing location, located on a small lake. In typical Lake Tahoe fashion, the outdoor reception was interrupted by a 10 minute hail storm! I do have a great photo of the bride hiding under the groom’s tuxedo jacket, WHILE STILL EATING HER DINNER! She was getting pelted with pretty good size hail chunks, but she was NOT going to let this ruin her day!

This photo was taken long before the hail storm started. Even before the ceremony started!

Daily Photo: “Edge Of The World”

This is a photo of the bridge walkway down to the Point Bonita lighthouse in Sausalito, CA. 3 exposure HDR (-2, 0, +1). HDR using Photomatix. I actually didn’t really notice untill later that I was on Manual Focus, but it looks like I may have gotten lucky that it wasn’t too out of focus.


Daily Photo: “Rainbow Lake”

This is my first released photo from the Risse-Savage Wedding. This was taking in the middle of a freak August hailstorm in Lake Tahoe. There must be some good luck when a beautiful rainbow appears in the middle of your wedding reception, right?

Daily Photo: “The James Bond Yacht”

It takes a couple different factors to be able to get good photographs. Good DSLR, Better Lenses, Good Photographer’s Eye, Motivation, etc. But more so than ANY of these, most great photos (especially anything with moving parts) involves alot of luck. Which I had alot of for this shot!

This is the $300 million dollar, 390 foot yacht owned by the Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko. It was spotted anchored off the coast of Sausalito, in perfect view of the thousands of tourists who stroll down Bridgeway on a daily basis.

On Friday, I drove down to Sausalito to try to get some shots of the yacht before it took off for it’s next exotic destination. Of course, it was gray and foggy. Another typical San Francisco summer day! After snapping some HDRs of the massive sea vessel from different angles and focal length, I noticed the billionaire’s personal helicopter coming in fast for a landing! I quickly adjusted my settings and my tripod, and snapped this photo seconds before the copter was touched down for good. It wasn’t until after I looked on my viewfinder did I notice the “Adventure Cat” sailboat perfectly centered in front of the yacht, with all the occupants in awe over what they were seeing. Alcatraz on the right side of the frame was an added bonus!

Here is an article from the WSJ about the yacht.

Daily Photo: The Rock And The City

I took this from under the Golden Gate Bridge, a short hike from Horseshoe Bay. Can you spot the bird in the photo?


Daily Photo: Madrone Sun

Looking through my old photos, I stumbled upon this, which, to my knowledge not many people have seen, so as I sit here and process wedding photos, I needed something quick and easy to share, so here it is! I really like the way the sun beams are breaking through the tree and illuminating the bridge.
