Went to Virginia and Washington DC this past weekend. Here are some of the photos. Enjoy!! Only spend about 24 hrs in both those states so everything was a little rushed. Next time, I'll have more gear with me and more time to plan my shots.

Everything was shot using a tripod an external remote. The camera was in manual mode. I wish I had a full frame to possibly capture the outer edges of the fireworks in some of the shots.

The city of New York built this ramp for Winterjam New York '09. I didn't get a chance to go to the Big Air competition the night before but here are some photos from the more public event. There were games, food, another area where you could slide down the hill, like a winter "carnival". I hope to get a chance to go again next year but for the night event so I can photograph Shaun White!!

01-30-09 Spyderco Spyker Focus Stacked



Location: Apt

EXIF Data:
Model: Canon EOS 40D
ISO: 100
Exposure: 1/200 sec
Aperture: 2.8
Focal Length: 100mm
Flash Used: No

So since it's a Friday and it's really cold outside, I thought I try the Focus Stacking technique again. So I brought out this knife.
Here is the setup:
- I used the 100 mm f/2.8 macro lens.
- The photo was a combination of 5 photos.
- Flash was to the camera left.
- I believe the power was at 1/4 power.
- I was shooting the flash through a shoot-through umbrella.

I know the photo isn't perfectly clean, but I think this is the cleanest I've gotten without much fiddling with the program. This photo was generated using default settings in the software. Enjoy!!

12-26-08 Random Lighting and Macro



EXIF Data:
Model: Canon EOS 40D
ISO: 100
Exposure: 1.0 sec
Aperture: f/8.0
Focal Length: 95mm
Flash Used: Yes

I used off-camera flash with this. I am satisfied with how it came out, but I still want to figure out how to make the image more crisp using flash. And for the knife collectors out there, yes this is a rare knife =D




EXIF Data:
Model: Canon EOS 40D
ISO: 100
Exposure: 30.0 sec
Aperture: f/11.0
Focal Length: 65mm
Flash Used: Yes

I just took this image for the heck of it and to mess around with various settings of flash. I need to somehow figure out how to use flash to give my images the "Wow!" factor.




EXIF Data:
Model: Canon EOS 40D
ISO: 100
Exposure: 10.0 sec
Aperture: f/11.0
Focal Length: 65mm

I took 3 photos and focus stacked them to create this image.

I took 3 photos and focus stacked them to create this image. I definitely need more practice in learning how to take the images to get a better stacked image. Also, I'm not getting results that I want using flash. I need to figure it out. Flash is driving me crazy!!!

12-25-08 Bryant Park Ice Skating

I was just too lazy to do anything special to the photos. Just went to Bryant Park to take pictures of people ice skating and to hopefully capture their expressions. Hopefully I accomplished my goal. I was expecting there to be sun, but we got there kind of late. So I had my circular polarizer and UV filter both attached. I didn't want to take the CP off in public so I just left it on. Hopefully I didn't butcher the pictures too badly. My first time using it and hopefully I'll be able to use it in more creative ways. Enjoy!!
