This is a classic example of what happens when you stare at your TV for too long, especially at 3AM.
You are going to want to take a bite out of this guy if you view it full screen!
This is a pretty cool building, albeit nothing special, that worked well for a medium exposure night shot.
This is a pretty neat carving outside of the Bird Sanctuary in Oakland.
This guy was the star of the show at the sanctuary getting as much camera time as he could.
I recently had a chance to experiment with doing some splash shots to try and capture some “frozen” water moments. The apple happened to be the best subject I could find, and maybe the most refreshing. These images are the result, with the final shot below.
Just a candid of me, my shirt, and my favorite tie.
This is a bonus, since I had the opportunity to capture some shots of the team cars from the Tour. I tried to get every last car that came by, though I’m certain I missed one or two.
Today’s stage came out of Livermore, CA heading south to San Jose, CA. Weather is good, mild clouds with only a sprinkle of rain here and there. These were shot around the 20 mile marker for the course as they head into the mountains. Next up will be a bonus round of vehicles and team cars from the race.

A classic 685 from B&W.
This was from a series of shots to illustrate high speed professional ping pong, in a less professional environment. Setup consisted of two strobes for high speed captures. Some colorization and black & white post processing to help bring out more.
Every once in awhile, a product comes along that changes everything. Sound familiar? Think Apple, and their catchy slogans. These are the products that help you in ways others can’t. They let you go the extra hour on battery life, protect your laptop from scratching, give new meaning to how you clean your floor, or better yet, slices, dices,...
There are all types of artists out there. This one happens to like the Duck.
The above example illustrates what digital noise looks like from a modern digital camera at ISO 3200. ISO noise is essentially the modern day digital film grain of yesteryear. To give a quick history lesson, in the days before digital, there were what we called film speeds, applied to various types of film. The film speed is what gave...
