The Bay Bridge

Image

This was at Treasure Island. Did a bit of “trespassing”, and finally found a destination I been trying to find every trip to San Fransisco. Unfortunately I had trouble with the long-exposure but, still ended up with a great shot.
Set-Up: Nikon D7000, 17-55mm f2.8 lens, & a sturdy tri-pod.
Post Process: Cooled the temperature, brighten shadows, sharpen, clarity, raised saturation, leveled, and small touch ups.

Nighttime at the Gates

Image

At the Golden Gate Brige it was getting dark and these were some random photos I decided to take. Since it was dark I shot up the ISO which allowed more noise in the picture. So at the same time I though of using a different picture setting/style. I wanted these pictures to be more “dream-like.”
Set Up: D7000 & sturdy Tri-pod
Post Process: Brighten pictures, white overlay, and sharpen.

This was yet another random day, and a few wrong exits led to this mountain. The unexpected usually turns out good, as of lately. I never been this close to being alined with the top of the bridge. The view was even too beautiful to leave right away; my friends and I stayed for an hour.

Post Process: Brighten picture & enhanced colors

The Ultimate AGT Fries!

Image

It was a beautiful day in the city today and I ate at a food truck called, “Adams Grub Truck.” I ordered the “Ultimate AGT Fries” & there was no disappointment at all although, a little bit of regret based on how unhealthy it was. Anyhow, I saw a good picture opportunity and took a picture of the fries in front of the bay brige and the city skyline.
Ingredients: Waffle cut fries, drunken pulled pork, hickory smoked bacon bites, Jalapenos, Dinosaur nuggets, Grubbin’ Asian Slaw, Tapitio sauce, & topped off with an egg.

This picture was taken in San Fransisco, near by the “Palace of Fine Arts” (The Dome). The scene at the moment seemed symmetrical.Another thing was the sunlight that shined through the trees lit up the subject in the right places (the subjects face) and I had perfect ambient light. Therefore I “had” to take these candid pictures.
Set-Up: Nikon d7000, DX 17-55mm F2.8 lens
Post Process: In this picture I enhanced the colors just a bit, as well as the clarity, added a bit of Gaussian blur and lowered the opacity to give a bit of glowing effect around certain areas of my subject.
