Open Heavens

Fighting to get this picture before the full moon came up and washed out the sky. When I first got on location, the stars were so much more visible but I think I still managed to catch a bunch of good stars.

Falls on the road to Hana, Maui

I mainly shoot people and portraits, so this was one of the rare times I did a long exposure photo. It really takes lots of patience lol I used a 9-sop ND filter, which made it very hard to see from the viewfinder. It took lots of patience to look through the viewfinder to compose the shot, mount the ND filter, let it expose for about 30...


So I individually did a shoot today in my studio of each of my daughters and had them pick there pose for me to light paint, here is one of those images... Canon 6d, Sigma 24-105, Light painting Brushes Color filter&Hood set, Coast TX100 flashlight, Coast G26 flashlight and a broken car windshield....

The Salvation of Dr. Hans Reinhardt

Hello community, it´s my first day here @fstoppers!

The Salvation of Dr. Hans Reinhardt

I´m a big fan of the Disney movie „The black hole“ since my childhood.

It was and still is fascinating and scary at the same time that Dr. Hans Reinhardt will stay there for all...

Lombard Street

On the 31st of January, I made a trip to shoot the Super Moon rising over the SF skyline. After wrapping up the shoot, I wanted to capture this iconic exposure of Lombard street. Now, in order to get this perspective, I had to shoot on a very telephoto lens, around the 500-900mm range. Since I was about 1/2 mile away from my subject, and I was...

Adobe Falls San Diego,CA

This is a hidden waterfall right next to the interstate 8 freeway, next to SDSU in San Diego, CA. Many of the rocks are painted by students when the fall is dry. This is one of the few spots with unpainted rocks.
A single exposure using an ND filter to sow down the shutter in daylight.

Traffic Jam

This is a composite image of 22 shots with exposures ranging from 1/60s to 20 seconds at f11 on a tripod with a 10 stop ND filter and without any filter. I had to change my ISO (from 800 to 50) according to the shutter speed and the use or not of the filter so that it would be consistent throughout the shots. I then layered them in Photoshop...

Newport Beach Pier at sunrise

Lucky to live about 20 mins to local beaches.

I got an ND filter system in Dec., Wine Country Camera, to go with a D500, tripod, shutter release and a couple of wide angle lenses, 16-35mm f/4 and the 12-24mm f/4 dx.

The attached photo was taken 3.3.18 on Balboa Pier, around 5:00 am. F/11, ISO 100 for 199 seconds. No filter was...

New To The Group & First Post

I got to play with a 5 second exposure and a couple of lasers

Oh yeah, there was a shiny model involved as well! :)

This image was one on those images that was unplanned and spontaneous.

We were shooting another image for my 'Metallica' series and then I had this bright idea of using a couple of lasers with a long exposure...

Rainy Night, Around the Corner

Olympus OM2n, 28mm 2.8. Auotexposure at F5.6 on Portra 160. Scanner: Canon Canoscan FS4000us.

Film does interesting things to colors, especially with long exposures. The Olympus off the film metering is the best I've found for night shooting.

Gaussian blur on the sky cleans up the grain.
