Growing up in the Tampa Bay Area I thought I knew the area pretty well but I continue to find new spots to photograph. Last night I went by the Tampa International Airport and I was able to capture some great photos. Here is one of those photos. This photo is composed of 7 bracketed exposures, then merged in Photomatix and finally edited in Lightroom. Read More +
I went out last night after work to try and get some more photos with the A7 II. I guess I am lame since I ended up at Sand Key State Park again. I am always looking for new spots to shoot but have been struggling to find new locations around where I live. The first photo is 1 exposure, cropped and lightly touched up in Lightroom. The 2nd photo is composed of 3 exposures, merged in Photomatix and touched up in Lightroom.
This past Sunday, I saw some dramatic clouds earlier in the day, I knew that would make for a good sunset! I left my house around 5 PM, that gave me about 2 hours to find a spot and set up. I really wanted to get some photos from Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach but due to all the spring breakers there was no where to park. I have never shot at this spot before, I found some nice rocks and headed Read More +
With the recent time change I am now able to shoot photos after work. Last week during work I noticed some nice clouds, I knew that it would be a good day to go shoot the sunset. Here is a sample of what I was able to capture. While I was shooting the sunset, this huge roll cloud formed over me. It was gone within a couple minutes!
I had the pleasure of going to the Festivals of Speed in St. Petersburg, Florida, I captured over 300 photos and I will be editing them later this week. All photos were taken handheld with my Sony A6000 & SEL1018 lens (3 bracketed exposures, merged with Photomatix & finished in Lightroom). Thanks for checking out my page, if you like my work please share this with your friends!
My “Throwback Thursday” is a photo I captured mid last year at Vinoy Park. I arrived to the park 20-30 minutes prior to sunrise, I could tell immediately that it wasn’t going to be anything out of the ordinary because there was barely any clouds. At the time I was still new to the whole photography thing and was trying all kinds of different shots, I had gotten pretty good at taking bracketed photos handheld (takes some patience). As I worked the scene, I noticed that the Read More +
I was in Downtown Tampa last week and I had some extra time to kill so I went exploring. First shot was taking on the William F. Poe Parking garage. I thought it would be cool to show off the whats in front & behind me, I am really starting to like the SEL1018 lens! The second shot was taken from my car window while I was at a stop light. I really liked how the S. H. Kress and Co. Building Logo looked, everything else just Read More +
This past weekend I went out with some friends to get footage for an upcoming video for “Tampa Bay is Awesome”. We were out for a good 10 hours all around the Tampa Bay Area, from Downtown Tampa to St. Pete Beach. I would have liked to spend more time taking photos of all the spots but we were mainly out to get video footage with my friends drone. We filmed 2 videos, the first being the making of and the other being the actual promotional video. Read More +
Decided to make a stop at John Chesnut Sr. Park on the way home from work today. I really liked this scene, the blending of green and yellow, plus reflection in the water was a nice touch. Unfortunately the water wasn’t completely still which created a blurring effect. This photo is composed of 3 Bracketed Exposure, captured handheld with my Sony A6000 and SEL1018. I look forward to responding to your comments so if you like my work please Comment ✔ Share ✔ Follow ✔
I have been shooting photos with the same kit lens (SEL1650) for almost a year now, it was the lens that came with my Sony Nex-6. The SEL1650 is a great beginner lens but if I was trying to get better quality images I knew I had to upgrade my glass. After researching for months I made up my mind on the SEL1018, it has great reviews but it was tough to justify the $850 price. It went on sale last week for $750, plus Read More +
My TBT (Throwback Thursday) for this week is another photo from 2014 taken on Honeymoon Island in Dunedin, Florida. This time around I was looking for a new spot, after driving around the park for 20 minutes I decided to park in a different lot and stumbled upon this jetty. This photo is composed of 3 Bracketed Exposure, captured handheld with my Sony Nex-6 and SELP1650. If you like my work please Like ✔ Comment ✔ Share ✔ Follow ✔
My fiancée recently got a new job in Downtown St. Petersburg and she is constantly telling me about all the cool “Art” on the buildings. We finally made it out there this past weekend, I got some cool photos but I plan on going back sometime in the near future to get more! The photo I am sharing with you is composed of 3 bracketed photos, shot handheld with my Sony A6000 & SEL30M35 lens. Leave me a comment, I would love to read your feedback. If you Read More +
