This weeks sunsets have been gorgeous, I made it out of work just in time to capture a glimpse each day. This was taken at the Gandy Bridge in Tampa.
It feels really good to be back at it again, I think I finally found something that truly makes me happy. When I am out taking photos I feel all my worries and fears subside as I focus on natures beauty. I have been fortunate enough to live in such a beautiful place where every morning and every night is a sight to see. It still baffles me how many people take it for granted on a daily basis.
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 haven’t posted any content on my website in 5 months. I took a break from photography and realized that it is a part of my life that I cannot ignore. Photography is something that I will continue to do until the day that I die! Working 6 days a week has made it difficult to pursue photography but I have learned that I can still find time to do something that I love.
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 was asked to drive a friend to a party last week and then pick them up a few hours later. Instead of going back home and waiting, I decided to walk around Downtown Tampa to try and get some practice with long exposures. What do you guys think, which photo do you prefer? The black & white or the color?
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!
I captured this beautiful photo a few weeks back. I was waiting to share this in hopes that I would find the SD card that had all the shots from this set but had no such luck. The sun lined up perfectly with this little tree, poor thing is struggling to survive. As always, thanks for looking & feel free to share!
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 +
“Ulele (pronounced You-lay-lee) celebrates the vibrant fusion of ingredients from Florida waters and land once home to many Native Americans, including the young princess Ulele. Expect intricately flavored, visually appealing dishes prepared on the 10′ diameter barbacoa grill.” I was in downtown Tampa with my fiancé and we were both starving, we couldn’t decide on a place to eat. So it was up to me to pick a spot. I decided on Ulele, after constantly seeing my friends post photos and rave about the good food I knew it would Read More +
