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 A7Sii with a Rokinon 14mm.
I took this photo a couple of weeks ago after the rain storms that we had here in California. It was taken in Salt Point State Park, Ca. I arrived to this spot and there was a bunch of other photographers snapping photos like crazy. I scoped the scene out and found where I wanted to shoot from. It was not the best of spots but I took the ground that was available to me. As soon as the sun went down the group left. I wasn’t sure why? But, none the less I had the whole spot to myself and acquired this shot with my Sony Alpha A7S. I think the shot came out great, especially since I had the wide angle lens on it, the Sony 10-18mm lens. What do you think?
I took this photo, series of photos, on the 20th of January. I took 15 photos of Orion at 15 seconds each. I then loaded them in PhotoShop CC as layers. Aligned them and then used the lighten mode to produce this photo. What intrigued me was this small dot that was in the same spot in all the photos. What do you think it is?
I took this picture of the moon about a month ago. It was shot with my trusty Sony Alpha a6300 along with my Orion ED80T telescope. It is around 20 photos stacked and processed in Photoshop CC. How do you like it?
This Time-Lapse was made with the Sony PlayMemories Camera App. It was shot in Alameda, Ca. with a Sony Alpha A7S and a Sony Zeiss 24-70mm lens.
This time-lapse app automatically shoots a series of still images at intervals then combines them into one movie. It’s easy to use: just select a time-lapse mode that most closely resembles what you are shooting and let the camera do the rest! The proper settings are automatically made for you, eliminating the need for time-consuming trial and error. Eight time-lapse themes are available: Cloudy Sky, Night Sky, Night Scene, Sunset, Sunrise, Miniature, Standard, Custom. You can choose to save the still images as a series of photos instead of a movie. With the latest update you can also shoot in silent mode. This will definitely save you some wear and tear on your shutter.
I used the Sony Angle Shift Add-on companion in this video. You can easily add pan, tilt, zoom and other effects to your time-lapse images with the click of a button. IN the case of this video I used the zoom feature.
