This page shows a couple examples of my photography over the years. I started with a simple digital camera where I would
chose the image size based on how to fill my 16MB memory card. Eventually I switch from point-and-shoot to SLRs. As a
challenge, I started by taking the first 1000 photos on manual, even manual focus. They were horrible, but that gave
good confidence for future endevaours. |
Most of my photos are from the mountains, as I have spent a significant amount of time hiking and climbing. And always making sure to carry my camera with me.
|Once when walking across campus, I thought the lighting looked right.|
|When I say that I climb mountains, this really is what I do:|
|Leaving Patriot's Point Park in Charleston, SC, the sun was setting almost right, so I carefully balanced to align the sun to luminate the flag with the USS Yorktown in the background.|
|It took me 5 days of backpacking to finally set down my pack and say, "I'll go see what is on the other side of this rise."|
The following photos are all taken using a Opteka 6.5mm f/3.5 lens.
|Taken below the iconic Epcot ball, see if you can find me with my Reds cap on.|
|At Kennedy Space Center, the Space Shuttle Atlantis hangs high in the chamber.|
|The St Vitus Cathedral in Prague, Czech Republic was well illuminated by the sunlight streaming through the windows. I stacked three exposures to better capture the dynamic range of the scene.|
"Mirror Lens" Collection
This photo is taken with a 500mm mirror lens, which is a poor man's telephoto. And yes, this is a real aligator in the wild.

|The diamond ring effect just as the Total Eclipse of August 21, 2017 ended.|
