A few weeks I dove up to Mount Shasta, California. I had checked the weather beforehand and saw that there were going to be clear skies. I then used and app called PhotoPills to check on the time and location where I could best see the Milky Way. I was shooting a timelapse of the Milky Way rising over Mount Shasta. The image below represents a stack of 597 photographs from the timelapse.
A most colorful sunset behind the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California. I was down at Chrissy Field yesterday with a friend of mine. We were attending a photographers meetup with the creator of the PhotoPills app. After we were done a handful of us stayed and watched the sunset behind the Golden Gate Bridge. The colors were just vibrant and amazing.
This is the USCGC Stratton. It is a ship I was stationed on from 2013 to 2016. We had pulled into Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The locals were very nice and the food was absolutely amazing. This photo was taken at the security station. I was on my way back from a hotel with some friends. I saw the ship and it looked great, so I snapped a quick picture of it. It was taken with the Sony Alpha a6000 and the kit lens.
This is one of my most popular Google Maps pictures. I took it when we were entering the port of Pearl Harbor, Oahu. I was stationed the USCGC Stratton (WMSL-752). We were heading there to pick up some ammo for a gun shoot exercise later in the day. Pearl Harbor, Oahu, was attacked on December 7 1941 by the Japanese. If you ever visit Pearl Harbor you should visit the Pearl Harbor museum and also take the USS Arizona tour.
These were shot at Edwards Air Force a few weeks ago. This plane is at the heritage museum. I had to use some filters to give them the look you see, due to the lights surrounding it. It was shot with a Sony Alpha A7Sii and a Rokinon 14mm lens at f/2.8.
This was taken at Sequoia National Park, in California. It is close to the General Sherman Tree by the Congress trail.
I used a Sony Alpha A7Sii, Rokinon 14mm, Nodal Ninja and a Mefoto Tripod. I took 12 shots total. 6 of them were pointed down at a 40 degree angle and then the other 6 were pointed up at a 40 degree angle. I then loaded the files in Adobe Lightroom CC 2015.10. Within LR I applied the lens profile and the exported all the files as TIFF’s. Once the files were converted to TIFF’s I loaded them in PtGui Pro and stitched them together to form a panorama. After the Panorama was made, I injected the photo with some fake metadata so it would display properly on social media sites. If you have further questions feel free to ask. I am here for YOU to learn.
This photo was taken on the Talkeetna River in Talkeetna, Alaska. This was my first time shooting the Northern Lights. I was so blown away by the natural beauty of the lights. In this picture we have the moon, venus, some of the milky way, Mt. McKinley, some of the milky way and the Northern Lights. It is a 3 picture panorama and was shot on a Sony Alpha A7Sii camera with a Rokinon 14mm lens.
