Solar Eclipse

Who is ready for the Solar Eclipse, #solareclipse ? I shot this a few weeks ago in my backyard in preparation of the Solar Eclipse coming up. I live in Petaluma, Ca. and it was a clear day when I photographed this. I used my Orion ED80T telescope connected to my Sony Alpha a6300 which was attached tom my Celestron AVX tripod. I think it came out pretty good and you can even see sunspot AR2670, which happens to be larger than the moon.

USCGC Stratton (WMSL-752)

This is the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Stratton. It is one of the U.S. Coast Guard’s newest ships and is home ported in Alameda, California. We pulled into Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for some rest and relaxation after a long 3 month patrol. The locals were very nice and the food was absolutely amazing. I was on my way back from a hotel with some friends and as we were walking back I saw the ship and it looked great at the pier. Because we were running late I was able to get this one picture of it. I took this with the Sony Alpha a6000 and the kit lens.

Pearl Harbor, Oahu | Google Maps

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.

Edwards Air Force Base | Sony Alpha A7Sii

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.

Sequoia National Park | Sony A7Sii

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.
