    The story behind this photo is my battle to have a better understanding flash photography and my love for silhouettes as an art form. I wanted a silhouette of my wife that could accentuate her femininity but at the same time keep it classy as the lady she is. I used a Lumix S5II with sigma art 24-70mm, 1/200 shutter, f 5.6, and ISO 100. For the flash I used a godox V1 and an Aperture Light Dome Softbox.

    Title or Location: Ventura Promenade
    It was a weekday afternoon when I went to the Ventura Promenade to capture some surfers. In the break between the wave series, a seagull hovered low over the shore, its wings in the perfect position, catching the last rays of sunlight. The feathers seem to shimmer, revealing a pristine white that contrasts beautifully with the vivid green colors of the moss lying over the rocks. The bird holds a clam firmly in its beak, a small treasure captured from the shimmering waters below. I just wonder, h

    Water has been one of my favorite subject matters as a novice photographer. I love the different textures and colors that can be captured in the waves during sunset. The pier at San Simeon State Beach offers a great vantage point to shoot the breaking waves from a unique angle without having to get in the water.

    This amazing shot was taken at Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary during one of my morning visits at the Sanctuary in February 2024. The first soft light rays from the sun and rising of mist from the lake water made it to look more serene and atmospheric environment. The dead tree (snags) in the water played vital role in making it look like the ghostly scenes in Hollywood movie "Lord of the Rings".The photo was shot with Nikon Z7ii at ISO 100, f14 at 13 sec and processed in Lightroom classic

    Been trying to capture an airplane going in front of the Moon for years. Still haven't got that Moon transit capture. There is something dynamic about this almost transit image I captured though. It almost gives the appearance that the passengers of that plane are doing a fly by and see the moon up close out of their windows.
