Journey of a body on this earth


Learning Long Exposures (2 photos)

Yesterday morning I met my good friend Dan Shehan for some long exposure lessons.  We zipped on over (hahahahah there really is no zipping in SF) to Baker Beach for some practice with the water.  In the past, I have really only done two long exposures and those were sort of lucky shots, so I wanted to know exactly how to do them from the zen master himself!  lol

While these aren’t the best, I felt they weren’t bad for my “real” first try.  I’m excited to see what else I can do.  For those interested, I used a 10-stop ND filter.

Cattle Egret

Here’s another photo from the zoo.  This time it’s a Cattle Egret.  I actually shot this through a fence but was able to make the fence disappear in photoshop.  A little dash of this and that and magically it disappears.  Ssshhh….it’s an ancient secret.  :P

Today I took my camera club to the Oakland Zoo.  It was the perfect day for it because there was complete cloud cover.  I love it when that happens.  No blown out highlights to deal with!  Here’s one of the images from today.  It feels good to get back behind the camera.
