Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] This has been an incredible year for me, photographically speaking, and while I may not have gotten out to shoot as much as I would have liked to, I feel like I made the most of the sessions that I had and came away with […]
As soon as I heard that the bridge was open, I was out the door like a shot with my gear in hand so that I could capture this little piece of history.
See the original exposures and get a peek behind the scenes to see how a composite image can be made from an HDR and strobist images.
[fb_like] Today I leave on yet another epic road trip, this time to SF Giants spring training in Scottsdale, AZ. Leaving from the SF Bay Area under the cover of darkness, there wouldn’t seem to be many
Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] I could almost hear the 7 Sisters laughing at us as we visited them for a shoot. I ran up to San Francisco one night with Tom and Paul to shoot this row of Victorian houses that has graced magazine covers, postcards and the opening […]
[fb_like] I’m totally blown away by the results of last Thursday nights print competition at PPGBA and I’m super honored to have done as well as I did. This hand-held HDR image scored
Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] Remember on a hot summer day you’d run through the sprinklers or maybe you had one of those toys that hooked up to the hose that was a fountain that had a bunch of hoses whipping about with water shooting out of the ends? The […]
Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] I did a presentation on HDR a week ago for the folks at AMPP and one of the attendees, Michael Kendrick, and I were talking about how our passion for photography has
Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] I’ve been hearing it from the so-called self proclaimed experts on internet forums that hand-held HDR is impossible or “you won’t get good results!” Just the mere mention of hand-holding
It’s a win in my book! While it may technically be second place again, an 82 point merit print is another good effort for my second time in print competition. I went with the HDR above …
[fb_like] It’s time for celebration over here at the Anvilimage compound! My image of San Francisco’s City Hall (shown above) won second place in an HDR photo contest hosted by Rick Sammon! I want to
Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] With a short burst of “bad weather” here in Northern California lately, we’ve all gotten the feeling that the extended Indian summer, that is characteristic of our area, is coming to a close. Trying to make the best of it and squeeze out that very […]
[fb_like] Expecting to see pics from the drag races? Nope, sorry. As has been happening with increasing frequency, my Friday night last week was another late night shoot-o-rama and I just didn’t have it in me to head out to the track in Sonoma with only 3+ hours of sleep. It just wasn’t going to […]
So, when the rest of traffic won’t let some guy in from a parking spot that has his signal on, I jump on the oppurtunity to grab a space and walk a block and a half to the entrance to the park unencumbered by a throng of people. I couldn’t believe it when the parking meter only gave me something like 29 minutes for the 60 cents that I put in! How do people work and park in the City?
Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] While driving across Crystal Springs Lake on the way to Half Moon Bay via Hwy 92, this little boat house has always captured my attention. As a little kid I wondered about the dock and what purpose it served since you weren’t allowed anywhere near […]
[fb_like] Almost a month ago I wrote about a trip that I took to the USS Hornet that is permanently birthed at the former Alameda Naval Air Station. One of the great things about visiting that ship is that there is quite a bit of space where you can freely wander and get up close […]
[fb_like] I talked before about waiting for a shot that I don’t think ever materialized the way that I wanted it, but when I left I stumbled upon a shot that made me happy about the effort. I also took this one while waiting for the sun to set and looking for a place to […]
Those of us that live in the SF Bay Area are pretty surprised when we get such perfect weather on a visit to San Francisco. Anyone remember the movie “So I Married an Axe Murderer” with Mike Myers? I swear they must have made a deal with the devil
