Felix, pictured here, is a dive master in Belize. He’s a super nice guy that shares some very interesting stories. Only because of the length, it is probably best if I share them with you in person. Every once in a while we would run into him in the town of Hopkins and he would be shaving his head using the rearview mirror of car. It seemed to fit perfectly into his shaving kit, so why not? Anyway, still hard at work on bringing some new content to you so bear with me. It should be ready shortly!
I hope you all had a great weekend. I actually had a kind of cool experience. A college teammate of mine (I was bike racer in college) took me to the Broncos game on Sunday. Although it was freezing, we were able watch a record-setting 64 yard field goal. It’s always cool to see things like that in person. Anyway, this is a little behind the scenes shot from Dead Horse point in Moab, Utah. I say behind the scenes because that person you see is our production manager taking an iPhone Photo as we were walking back from a video we were filming. The video will be released in a few weeks so stay tuned. If you’d like, sign up for my newsletter and I’ll let you know the second it hits the streets. We have been hard at work on it, and it will be the start of something totally new. If you are looking to learn more about photography, the creative process and all that is involved….stay tuned!
The sub-zero temperatures here in Colorado have frozen the internet. I haven’t been able to upload anything today. I’ve also been battling computer issues. Apparently Apple’s new OS Mavericks doesn’t like my Drobo. Hmm, I’m not sure what is going on with Apple these days. Anyone else having issues with the new OS?
Ok, enough whining….let’s get to some beauty! This is an image I made last year at the 1st annual North by Northwest. I had wandered around Trillium Lake for a while looking far off into the distance at Mt. Hood when I stumbled upon this rock. I loved how the rock and its reflection were analogous to Mt. Hood and its reflection. It was kind of like and SAT question. X is to Y as A is to ? What do you think, does it work or am was I just really tired when I photographed it?
Bear with me, this is going to be pretty photo-geeky stuff. I really don’t think there is anything wrong with shooting .jpg anymore. For years I have configured my cameras to shoot both .jpg and RAW. This image is a .jpg straight out of my Fuji X-E1. Sure, I still had the RAW for backup, but the fact I didn’t have to spend anytime processing this image means I might have more time for making photographs. In my book, that’s good thing!
Running up to the first of the year, the schedule here might be touch-n-go. I’m working hard on bringing a very cool learning experience to people who want to grow both photographically and creatively. I wanted to apologize in advance in case you miss a post or two. Thanks for understanding!
I hope you all enjoyed your holiday. It’s supposed to be getting cold here in Colorado, so I thought I would try to warm in up a bit around here. Scripps Pier is one of my favorite places to photograph. I love the contrast of waves, clouds and the unmoving pier leading you to them.
