I had a lot of fun shooting in and around the JW Marriott Camelback Inn while I was in Scottsdale awhile back. I got this shot after a pretty long day of shooting.
The sun had set while I was climbing down Mummy Mountain, so I headed back to the resort for some dinner. I ended up having the steak skewers and guacamole (along with a couple G&Ts) at the hotel bar at the suggestion of the bartender. And kudos to him, because all of it was top notch. (more…)
The road to Odessa was an interesting one. Though the forecast called for a mildly overcast day, I encountered a lot of strange weather–rain, horror movie levels of fog, ominous storm clouds, then oddly striated sections of clouds that let the light pour through in slices. (more…)
I witnessed an amazing sunset the other night behind the Tyler Technologies building while I was out for a walk. There was a storm brewing which made for some amazing contrasts of color.
Unfortunately, by the time I ran inside to grab my tripod and camera, I had missed most of the really cool stuff… (more…)
This was a throwaway shot I took near the bay in San Diego right across the street from the Star of India. It was another of those moments when I’m shooting away at the setting sun, then I turn around to notice, “hey, there’s stuff going on behind me.”
I loved the way the sun was reflecting off the buildings, bathing them in yellow and orange. It was a nice contrast to the darkening blue sky. I probably could’ve waited a few minutes for a more dramatic sky, but might have lost some of the color reflected off the windows. Oh well, I was late for dinner, anyway. (more…)
Here are a couple more outtakes from my reflections of reality walk the other day. I flipped them to make the effect a bit trippier.
If I had realized this was the approach I would take, I probably could’ve set them up better while shooting, but either way, they look cool. (more…)
This was just a bit of fun. While walking around last night I noticed huge puddles of water flowing through the complex, so I thought I’d follow them around to see if I caught any cool reflections in them. (more…)
