Photography

Taking pictures is a lot of fun. I’ve been into photography for quite a few years now.  I started with a Canon Digital Rebel, but in 2012 I got the Canon 5D Mark III, and love the camera! The main lenses I use are the Canon 24-70 f2.8 and Canon 70-200mm f2.8. For macro, I have an older Canon 100mm macro lens.

Some of my pictures are High Dynamic Range (HDR) photographs, meaning I take at least three exposures and combine them into one image.

Below are the latest posts from my photography category.



Photography: Nepal Wares


I took this picture back in April of 2015 when I was in Nepal on a unicycle tour through the Annapurna mountain range.  Vendors with portable shops would setup their items to sell alongside the main pathway in the little villages. The night before it had snowed a ton, and we had to turn around and head back down the pass instead of completing the entire circuit. I remember the morning in great detail as it was my birthday. This picture was taken on the way back down to lower elevation. 

I hope to go back one day to finish the entire pass. The scenery is amazing and worth a second trip.

Camera: Canon 5D Mark III
Lens: Canon EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM — if you only get one lens I highly recommend this one.
Settings: 30mm focal length, f/3.2, 1/800s, ISO 100

Photography: Speckles the horse.


More horse photos! This photo was also taken when I was going through Spain heading from Barcelona up to San Sebastian with a few friends last summer. We touched through France, and I’m pretty sure I snapped this picture while we were on the France side of the world. It is another HDR combined from five difference exposures using Photomatix — the program is awesome for creating HDRs. Download it from Amazon using my link!

Photography: Horse eating grass in France


I ran around with my tripod taking tons of pictures of the horses on a windy hilltop in France last summer. I used  Photomatix to generate this picture by combining five different exposures.

Use Photomatix! I highly recommend it. Below shows some of my workflow; the image at the left is one of the original exposures. The ones at the right are experiments with color correction to give the photo different feelings and moods.

Photography: Redwoods in Yosemite


I used to not really like hiking. There seemed to be no purpose to it; you followed a trail for no real rhyme or reason and usually ended up back where you started. I never sought out hiking as an activity, but I always have been a hiker, it is just that I  never considered what I was doing as actual hiking. As a kid I would wonder around in the trees following deer trails simply to see where they went. As an adult, I would hike miles to go climb some rocks or see some fantastic waterfall. I never really realized that I also really enjoyed the process of getting to where I was going; being immersed in nature is such a wonderful feeling.

I love redwood trees. It probably stems from me growing up around then, and literally living with them in a treehouse. Here are a few pictures I took with my Canon 5D while on a 20 mile trip to see Clouds Rest in Yosemite. Some people might even call it a hike…

A grueling 9 mile hike from Yosemite Valley that is relentlessly straight up!
