Huntington Beach Sunset

I took this shot a little while back at Huntington Beach in Southern California. It has been a little bit since I have had internet, so there are a few pictures that I haven’t posted yet so I’ll try to put some up. Unfortunately I don’t have all the photos I want to post so my selection is limited but I’ll get them on here eventually. Anyway, this shot was taken in different parts. One part was the sky, another part for the water, and multiple parts were used for the pier. All in all it is more of a composite that I created from multiple picture of the same spot. If you want to learn about some of the techniques I used or are interested in getting different prints that may not be available through my site please feel free to email me on the contact tab up top.

Singapore

I took this shot while I was in Singapore during deployment. This was by far one of the best ports I have been to since I have been with the military. It was real nice and clean and there was actually things to see and do besides bars. I took this shot from way up hgh in a building that looked like a cruise ship was on top of it. I saw this sweet view and fortunately we all decided to stay at that spot until sunset. This is an HDR that is made up of -2, 0, and +2 exposures. I merged these three exposures in Photomatix and then masked through the better layers in Photoshop. Hope you like the results.

Family Photos

This is from a shoot I did for my friend and his family. We shot at Onofre beach off Camp Pendleton. This is one of my first time working with kids and it turned out to be pretty fun. They were definitely a learning experience and I was able to get some great pictures with them. Thanks for having me as your photographer guys! This is a RAW image that was processed in Photoshop CS6.

Doomed Youth

Took a few more shots of my buddy Steven Feusi while we were at Huntington Beach the other day. What can I say, he like getting his picture taken and I like taking pictures so it works out. You can check out his tumbler page by clicking on his name in this post. This is a RAW image file that I processed in Photoshop CS6. I love this lens. It is a Rokinon f/1.4 85mm. It gives awesome blur effects on the subjects. Let me know what you think or go to Steven’s page and give him some love.

Dramatic Sunset

Took this shot at Corona Del Mar over at the Newport Beach area. It was the first nice night I have been out for picture in a while. Lately I haven’t had to great of luck with the weather for some reason but it worked out on this visit. This is a RAW image file with a bit of work done to it. I masked through the sky to bring in another sky I had saved in one of my folders. I also applied some Nik Color Effex filters and levels adjustments. I masked through the -2 and +2 exposures as well. Hope you like the results.

Black and White Calm

I took this photo some time ago at Corona Del Mar beach near Laguna, CA. This was super early in the morning before the sun even set and is a real long exposure. I had wanted to keep it minimal with what was included in the shot and I think it worked out. I can’t remember since this was an old photo but I don’t think I even used an ND filter because of how dark it was. Either way, this is a RAW photo that was processed in Photoshop CS6 and turned to black and white with Nik Silver Effex Pro.

Vernal Falls

Vernal Falls was by far the nicest waterfall in Yosemite National Park in my opinion. It is a short hike off the main road that runs through the park. Once you start getting close to the falls you have to climb a set of stairs and you start to get sprinkled with the mist from the water hitting the rocks. You can walk all the way to the top where there is a large pool of water that’s awesome for swimming in, especially after hiking around all day. I stitched two images together for this one since I don’t have a wide angle lens. I processed the photo in Photoshop CS6 with Nik Color Effex Pro.
