The total solar eclipse – May 2012 – I took this photo by holding up a piece of welders glass
This photo was taken at my campsite in the Redwood national forrest.
Just pushing out a few interesting images I still had from the trinity Alps.
I am working on a new project called Overland Oregon, my plan is to post articles and photos of Overland adventures across Oregon.
I have yet to joust a trout out of the water in efforts to get a meal at night, but may be I should practice, I am week on survival skills, but I seem to make out just fine.
Arches is such a strange and interesting place. The landscape is so desolate and sureal. Once pristine, now crowded with lines of visitors crawling across the fins of sandstone like ants trafficking a nest.
Marina is hard at work making a camp breakfast while we were camped outside of Yellowstone NP in late September 2011.
Pretty sketchy honey shop out in the middle of nowhere.
I think this is looking out across the Colorado river , up river from the Grand Canyon.
Shot this photo with a tripod in the creek while I was backpacking through the trinity alps in Northern California. I like the soft look of the water and the simple blue tones in the picture.
Really nice place to camp for the week. Strange to not see another person for a whole week. Wilderness can teach you a lot.
… looks like elephants to me
This bus has a tiny bus welded to the top of it!
This image is looking back toward Page Arizona, a desolate place, but with some interesting beauty.
The unfocused points of light are leaves of a grove of Aspen trees in the height of their fall color
This bison came pretty close to us while we were travelling though Yellowstone National Park.
Part of the Cowboy Cliche.
This is an alternat Crater Lake Panorama that I never posted.
This image was made during May of 2013 while I was on a camping trip with my Father and Grandfather. My Grandpa Sherm, hiking around a spot in the high desert of eastern Oregon.
I took this photograph of a Zennia in my Grandma’s garden back in the summer. I like the soft look the film adds to this picture.
This photo of a Mini Cooper driving by me at the classic car cruise has this streaking effect called panning. It is an in camera effect that changes the visual asthetic and mood. I try and add a sureal look to most of my photos. Somthing that has a certain fell to it.
I wrote a book this last year covering the process of learning how to use a fully manual film camera . The process really influenced my visual style and taught me a lot about slowing down and thinking critically about the image I want to make. I think this process would be valuable for any one that is interested in photography and working with film and analog methods. I put together a stand-alone website about the film eBook – Check out http://www.workingwithfilm.info/ The book is 56 pages of photos and methods of reworking your asthetic intent. Smart phone cameras are great- and I love instagram filters too… but there is a lot of craft involved in shooting film photos.
This Cairn is the only man made symbol to notify hikers of a change in the trail. Some places are still wild and untammed.
This photo was taken in the grass lands out side of Pendelton Oregon. This image looks northwest through the windmill farm- toward Mt. adams in the distance.
This photo was taken in Sego Canyon in a remote part of central Utah. The petroglyphs covered the walls of this rim rock.
This image was taken in the alabama hills with a full moon and a 15 second exposure. It gives the land a strange daylight look. Almost like the daylight we are used to, but slightly off- more sureal.
This image was part of an abstract collection of photos I have been working on. Check out www.outletcommunications.com
This photo was taken with my film camera, and an old manual focus 28mm f2.8 lens – works pretty well during the day while I am taking photos with a faster shutter speed. For this picture I set the camera up on a tripod and set the shutter speed to bulb – I think this was somewhere around a ten second exposure- Film always seems to give off interesting results.
If you are ever in Yosemite, during the winter, Check out the canvas tents- It was a nice way to explore the busy-ness of the yosemite valley.
I took this photo of Bell Peppers at the farmers market while I was practicing with a new roll of film in my nikon FG20.
