Huntington Beach

9 Oct

Surf City, USA!  One of my favorite beach towns.  I only spent a little bit of time there this trip, because I was just trying to take photos of surfers.  I got to capture a beautiful sunset too though!  I will most likely take more photos there in the future, since I love going there. 🙂

I suppose, for those of you that might travel there but have not yet, maybe you might like some recommendations on things?  I’m no expert on HB, but from what I do know, they have a Tuesday market thing, with a bunch of art and some farmer’s market type stuff also.  In addition, the surf shops have big sales, with many items 50% off.  I totally recommend going on a Tuesday. 🙂 They do have the sales other days too, but I’m not sure of the specifics on that.  Many weekends I think, possibly Fridays.  It’s a happening town. 🙂  Also, if you like sushi, I love Sushi on Fire!  That’s all for now, I have to explore it more myself 🙂

I am now located in San Diego, so I am working on taking photos of this area, so I can start selling down here.  I’m not sure that San Diegans want to buy photos of Portland… I am going to focus on my bigger canvas prints right now, instead of the small wood blocks, since I don’t even know how I can get those wood blocks now.  I have been super busy with the move, getting a puppy, and finally going on our honeymoon, so I haven’t done much yet, but I am looking forward to start some serious photo-taking!  Especially since I don’t have a “real” job now… 

So here are the first three photos that I have printed on canvas!  Click each to view larger.


Erica and Jeff part 2: the Wedding

28 Oct

They got married! (I have couples photos of Erica and Jeff here – they were not engaged yet, but almost)  I wasn’t the official photographer, but I did some shots of decorations and getting ready, and captured a couple magical moments of dancing in the sunset. 🙂  I’m so excited for them!

I tried to post this earlier, and apparently it didn’t work. So now I’m posting it again.

So, black and white vs color. That’s about it. Interesting to compare the differences.



The City is at War

21 Feb

The City is at War

Title courtesy Cobra Starship.  This picture just seems to me what that might look like…mainly because of the angry clouds.  The angry, beautiful, perfect clouds.  So…I’m incredibly pleased with myself right now.  Sorry if that sounds egotistical, but, as an artist, that doesn’t happen often.  I can like my work, but rarely am I like “Wow, this is amazing.” RARELY.  I REALLY hope you like this photo as much as I do.  I’m not quite sure how much time I spent on it, but it was something close to ridiculous, continuously changing tint/temp/hues/saturation/highlights/shadows.  And some other stuff.  Also, since I missed the real sunset due to my camera battery dying and trying to drive home as fast as possible during rush hour and drive back downtown, and just completely missing it, and crying, I think I did a pretty good job of making the clouds better than they were.  So, I hope you like it, and if so, you should buy it. 🙂

Oh, and this is with my new lens, working on editing/posting more photos.  Although I have a bunch more from this location, and I’m not sure I want to touch them, because I don’t think I can get them this good…oh well.

AND, since I said I edited it, if you are wondering, I use Lightroom, no Photoshop.

Sunsets / Skies

Sunsets / Skies

Ok, I can’t put tags on new pages that I make, so no one ever sees them, so I’m making a post to announce it, so that I can put tags 🙂  I just (finally) went through all my photos and pulled out all the sunsets/sky photos and posted them.  Yay!  So here’s a link, or you can click the picture to the right 🙂  Enjoy!!
