Chrismas Eve on the Sespe River

I shot this little gem on Christmas Eve, 2011. I was riding my bike home from an afternoon of shooting when I spotted the sun tickling the trees above the Sespe River. With just minutes to act, I had to run down from the overpass to get close enough the the spot pictured here.

I shot this with my Panasonic GH2 using a Leica 25mm f1.4 lens.

Sunset on the Sespe

After having this image sitting idle in Lightroom for about a week, I decided that I couldn’t add any more to it and that it was complete. I shot this on the Sespe River in Fillmore, CA with my Canon S90. I guess you could say it is another one of those “magic hour” shots. […]

Sunset on the Sespe River

After having this image sitting idle in Lightroom for about a week, I decided that I couldn’t add any more to it and that it was complete. I shot this on the Sespe River in Fillmore, CA with my Canon S90. I guess you could say it is another one of those “magic hour” shots. Most of the post-processing I’ve been doing with these photos involves creating an HDR or panoramic image and then layering a bunch of textures over them until they become the painting-like pictures you see here.

I have to confess that this series is inspired in part by a trip to Santa Fe NM that I took with Amelia this year. Without getting too far into my own personal critique of what I saw while visiting the world’s 2nd largest (?) art market, let’s just say that months later, I am still processing the experience. Part of it is my way of trying to find inspiration in the town I live in. If I can draw from what is arguably Fillmore’s assets, i.e. it’s landscape and surroundings, than perhaps I can find some sort of salvation.

Fillmore Sign, Fillmore, CA

This is actually another “redo”. I shot this image of the Fillmore sign years ago with my Holga. For reasons I will not divulge at this time, I decided to give it a try with my new camera. Pretty friggin’ cool. It’s like I out-Holga-ed my Holga…well, not quite.

Train Trestle in Fillmore, CA

This is the trestle just outside of Fillmore, CA. This is actually the second version of this image that I have shot, the first being made from my iPhone. After composing the iPhone version, I decided to go back and give it a try with my little pocket camera. Not that there was anything wrong […]

This is the trestle just outside of Fillmore, CA. This is actually the second version of this image that I have shot, the first being made from my iPhone. After composing the iPhone version, I decided to go back and give it a try with my little pocket camera. Not that there was anything wrong with the original – I just wanted to make a larger version of the image. I really like how this one came out.

Although this image is about a month old, I decided to post it here anyway – this blog is meant to serve as a depository for my various projects that are not ready for my static website.
