Lassen National Park Visitor Center

This is a 360 VR photosphere of the visitor center at Lassen Volcanic National Park. It has lot’s of great info inside about the park and places to see. If you stop by here talk to the Ranger on duty and ask him or her the best places to see. The park is full of great photo opportunities.

This was photographed with a Ricoh Theta S

Salt Point State Park Waterfall | Sony Alpha A7S

This is the waterfall at Salt Point State Park, Sonoma County, California. I think it is the #1 tidal waterfall in California. 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?

Orion Nebula – Sony a6300

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?

Moon – Sony Alpha a6300

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?

Time-Lapse – Sony PlayMemories Camera App

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.
