Nikon D3X – Stuck in Customs

The Tate in London

Daily Photo – The Tate in London

I think this was one of the last years that they let people use tripods in here. I remember coming back the next year with some friends and the guards had totally changed their tunes. It’s still such a weird regulation to me. I think most of the reason is that they don’t want people to trip on tripods and fall over, but that almost never happens. And it definitely doesn’t happen in these wide-open spaces like this. I think people are much more likely to trip on a stroller or a myriad of other devices people carry about.

Paris at Dusk

Daily Photo – Paris at Dusk

It’s a fun challenge to walk around the Eiffel Tower and try to get photos without tourists in them. I mean, getting some tourists in the shot is not a bad thing at all, since it kind of goes with the territory. In most cases, I would recommend finding some shrubbery and trees and getting the camera down quite low to the ground with a wide-angle lens.

Ibiza Coast at Sunset

Daily Photo – Ibiza Coast at Sunset

We had dinner at a great beachfront restaurant here (I forgot the name), but the sunset was so amazing that I had to make a quick escape to capture some photos! This was different than the nude beach we visited for sure, where I did not take photos. Believe me, even though it sounds like it might be kinda sexy, you don’t want to see a lot of these people in their natural element.

Daily Photo – The Louvre on a Summer Day

I took this one with quite a wide-angle lens, but I like how everything is a bit warped and strange. I believe I took this back in the Nikon days with my 14-24mm lens. Man… that still is one of my favorite lenses of all time and I wish I had the equivalent on the Sony!

New York’s Central Park

Fantastic Fungi

This is a great doco about mushrooms!

Daily Photo – New York’s Central Park

Here’s a photo I recently re-worked for a show I was invited to. It’s one of my favorite images from New York and I went in to give it more of a “film” look. I tried about five different cross-processing techniques until I finally landed on this one.

London Court

Passport Sunday Returns to London!

Last week Passport Members got to see the edit of a different part of London, so I wanted to use some new techniques for this week. Enjoy!

Colorful Court

This one required a bit more work than I initially thought. Fun though!

Daily Photo – London Court

Isn’t this a wicked-looking building? At first, I thought it was some kind of evil lair. Actually, I thought that the entire time I was taking the picture until I realized it was just a courthouse that has rather gothic stylings. Well maybe it is an evil lair if the judge is kinda evil.

The Met

Daily Photo – The Met

I don’t often go visit museums in cities, because I’m usually too busy taking photos in said cities. However, I did go spend a few hours in the Met in New York to see their collection of Impressionist paintings. There is one wing that has a collection of Renoirs that is breathtaking. I had some music flowing into my ears as I roamed around to take them in. Memory us a tricky thing, but I have a perfect memory of most of my moments there.

Another Rainy Day in London

Passport Sunday goes to London

Join Passport Sunday today as you can see this cool technique for blurring out people that live in London. There’s nothing wrong with them of course, other than they are all drained by living in such a dreary city!

Here’s the cool technique for blurring out pedestrians I mentioned above!

Daily Photo – Another Rainy Day in London

This area around the mayor’s office is one of my favorites for shooting because of all the lines and angles. It’s even better when it rains because it seems to accentuate all of these shapes.

Film View of The High Line in New York City

The Dream Episode 1

I think you’ll get hooked after Episode 1!

Daily Photo – Film View of The High Line in New York City

I recently re-worked a few of my older photos for an exhibition. There was to be a bit of a “film” feel, so I went back and used various cross-processing techniques for the shots. This is a process where you push the whites into one color space and the blacks into another. Every scene is completely different, so I may start with a preset but then push it into another direction.

I haven’t been to Disney in years and I’m not sure if they still let you use tripods, but I’m sure glad they did while I was there! It was kind of weird carrying it all over the park, especially when I got on rides. The operators would just let me collapse it and put it under my legs. Seems like that might be kind of a hazard but they didn’t seem to mind, so neither did I!
