Sutro Bath steel wool spinning

Well I had been wanting to try this for a while now. We went out to Sutro baths and Bill, Don and I had our cameras setup on the  tripods. I am spinning in the photo above on Ocean Beach right below the cliffhouse. I had Bill hit the remote on my camera and this is what I got.


This is a shot of me at the entrance of the cave at Sutro baths. I can't wait to go out and try it again!

New camera 5D Mark III


I finally broke down and bought the 5D Mark III after using the 40D for the past 5 years. This was one of the first photos taken with it. I was able to test out the in camera multiple exposure mode here. I could not get the headlights and tail lights in a single exposure so I took advantage of the Canon 5D III multiple exposure mode. This photo was taken in Sacramento right by the Embassy suites hotel. So far I am happy with the results of this camera!

Mare Island light painting



Went to Mare Island to do some light painting. We found these old Abandon Barracks. It was spooky inside. There was broken glass and holes in the floor, you have to watch every step you take because you could easily fall into one of the holes that was in the floor. I like the way the colors glowed off the walls and floors.


In this photo I used a flash light with a red gel to paint the front, Don Taylor was upstairs with the flash using it to light up the upstairs and Bill was spinning the light making an Orb. We had a full moon so it helpd to light up the side of the building.

Fourth of July fun

These are shots of me and my son playing around with fireworks. I used a Tripod with remote trigger. Camera settings were f8 25s iso 100. We used sparklers to get this effect. I was practicing with the sparklers for an up comming experiment I have been wanting to try.
