No! But still a striking example of Half Dome in black and white.

I know many of you may be suffering through the cold of a January snow…and I do feel for you. However just to be clear, we do have snow in southern California. And to prove it, I have captured this image from the Huntington Beach pier.

Oftentimes when it comes to photography, what I think is nothing turns into something quite unexpected. In this image, I had taken several shots when I wondered what it might look like from a direct overhead perspective. The result is stunning…in my opinion.
This is another one of my favorites!

To me, it’s just a nice piece of nostalgia. In today’s world, a phone booth is something only my generation can remember. Maybe that’s why I seem to be drawn to them. This one was discovered in a rather unexpected place…the Queen Mary.

It’s interesting and often difficult to explain – the images that capture the attention of a photographer. Sometimes, it’s as simple as a colorful window.

A good silhouette will provide more than just a shadow that carries no possible recognition of the subject other than facial features. A good silhouette will cast ever so little light on the face to achieve just enough detail to recognize the subject of the portrait. In the case below, I have placed the model in a way that allows me to adjust my settings for the light in the frame, but not the model. Then, I make an ever so slight adjustment to allow a hint of light to splash onto the subject’s face. This creates the perfect setting to achieve the silhouette, and at the same time recognize the subject.

Yes, Christmas here is a bit different. Coming from Iowa, it did take a few years to get used to seeing Christmas trees on the beach. But now, it seems perfectly normal!
I captured this image one Christmas at Crystal Cove in Laguna Beach, California. This is why we love riding our bikes on the beach. One can see so many things they would otherwise miss…like a Christmas tree.
Only 17 more shopping days till Christmas.
