All in Capture

Flower Fields, Carlsbad CA, 04.18

...

We were at the gate around 9AM thankfully, as the crowd grew and continued to do so until after we left around noon. Its a beautiful spot. Great color all over, and the tractor/wagon ride was a nice break after walking up and down the rows. Go before the season is over, but get there early.

Behind the Scenes Boots, 07.17

We moved our work studio recently (its our 4th or 5th move) and I realized I hadn't done many (if any really) behind the scenes pics in our last space so when I needed to shoot a stylized boot collection for one of our dealers I saved a sequence along the way. I won't bore with too much technical detail and instead just dive into some pics...

Anza Borrego Surprise, 05.16

On a whim I decided to spend the weekend out exploring Anza-Borrego State Park. I’d never spent any time there so I really looked forward to exploring and taking some pics. I know my Great Grandparents spent time camping and rock hounding out there, so its been on my bucket list...

Reprocess & Remaster, 11.15

I had the time to reprocess and remaster some of my older shots after migrating out of Aperture and into Lightroom. Shots that at the time I liked a lot, and now (10 or more years later) I still like. Today’s Lightroom (CC 15) offers features and performance that was only imagined. Ansel Adams would be in love with today’s tools. Having said that...

Beautiful Fragments, 2010

Back in mid 2010 I discovered a lens from Canon, the MP-E 65mm. Its a dedicated macro lens capable of capturing up to 5x magnification on a full frame sensor. Its used for scientific and forensic work as well as lots of people shooting insects. Hmmm… “bugs” didn’t really interest me until I saw...

White Rim Road, 06.15

The White Rim Road (seen in the foreground) is an approximately 100 mile loop around the middle level of Canyonlands National Park. Spectacular views and a wholly surreal drive compared to a daily cross-town commute. Permits are required but relatively...
