Wave series from Shore Acres / Oregon Coast
To give you a size perspective the rail fence up on that bluff is about four and a half feet tall.
Tech note: All were taken with a Canon 40D, Canon 18-40mm L lens and tripod with a remote shutter release. I used manual mode and manual focus all preset to enable me to watch everything unfold and hit the remote as I wanted to.
Yesterday was a good day.
When you come right down to it there isn't much on a beach other than water, rocks and trees. Some days things just go the right way. It can be a tough job but somebody has to do it. This shot thanks to my wife (oregontechchick) and her little Canon A560.
I'll have more to post when I get things sorted and the good ones run through Lightroom.
Shot a duck with a Canon
The first shot is with the Tamron 28-75 mm that I use for most of my non macro studio stuff. The second two are detail shots and the Canon 100mm macro was used for them.
Not really looking for votes on this one. Just wanted to share the pretty work. The woman that paints these is a real joy to watch work. This Pintail is about 17" long overall.
Anyway... Mike and Jonna in Alaska in 2005. This was taken at the fishing port of Wrangell Alaska. You can see our ride in the background. We will be going back up there in 2010 for our 20th anniversary.
If anyone has the money to go and can take 3 weeks off the end of May /beginning of June 2010 and wants to split some expenses on a 7 day one way cruise with an extra 7 days up on Kenia and then fly home I'd like to hear from you. Send me a PM or an email.
Window light with a reflector. Canon 10D and Canon 100mm macro. F8 and 1/2 sec.
One year anniversary...
Some of you will remember that a year ago I had a little mishap in my wifes Explorer resulting in one Dead Ford. I had been up doing some winter shooting at Cougar Resevoir It kind of fell over on it's side after a short spell of being pointed West while traveling East at about 30mph on some ice. This happened about a year after my wife had done the same thing in it. Long story as to why but it was a vehicle thing and not a driver error.
Anyway the point of the post is.... No matter what the weather, when you are out running around shooting make sure you keep your camera bag zipped closed. I had mine sitting on the passenger seat and it was not zipped. In an accident lenses and other contents can become flying objects. If one of them smacks you in the head it WILL hurt and it's not real good for the gear either. I ended up with lenses in the back seat, on the ground where the side window broke, laying in the snow and mud.
Fortunately all of the gear and the driver survived unharmed. As for the Ford I never liked anyway, they totaled it and hopefully is is now rebar buried in concrete somewhere.

Out of Tune - An old piano I found in an abandon house in Central Oregon.
Is my point clear?
