Oil Can Project – OCP13

A forgotten gem in my collection.I captured some images of this can a long time ago but never was happy with the results. Sadly, I never set it back up for the re-shoot. What was I thinking?

Delta Lake State Park

I promise I will not go crazy making images with the Lensball. But, like any kid with a new toy, I’m going to play…

The weather forecast was predicting rain for Sunday. I figured the clouds needed to start rolling in and was hoping they would make an appearance before sunset. Mother Nature did not disappoint me. I had an idea for a sunset image utilizing the Lensball and Delta Lake State Park was the best place to try it out. I was hoping for a little calmer waters but the gentle roll of waves coming to shore was not overwhelming. I had to be quick with the camera if I wanted a low enough angle. It worked out…

Bellamy Harbor Park

After a few days of experimenting with my new Lensball I think I finally understand the conditions I need to be in to capture some good images. It was not as intuitive as I thought it would be. After the gym this morning I headed over to my favorite local spot, Bellamy Harbor Park, to see what kind of sunrise images I could capture. I like how this one turned out…

Pixley Falls State Park

I have to admit that I am a fan of processing my waterfall images as black & whites. To me, there is something clean and simple about the result that I really like. Today I am back at Pixley Falls (well, actually, I was there two weeks ago) with another image of the namesake waterfall. This view is slightly from the side which gives a good view of the water rushing over the edge rocks.

Waterfall images are all about the look of the falling water. You want a slow enough shutter to achieve the silky water look but still fast enough to retain definition in the flow. I don’t want it to be a blur of white, I want to be able to see the water.
