Berkeley Lighting Session

The other week I went into Berkeley to meet up with two photographer friends and work with artificial light. There were a number of people who needed shots for modeling portfolios, casting opportunities, personal websites, or just volunteered for fun. It was most definitely a fun afternoon. I tried to make sure Jill and Sarah had opportunity to work with the equipment I brought, but I got some shooting in, too.

Baseball Over the Bay

Hillsdale Charger Baseball

The Hillsdale Chargers played a couple games in the San Francisco Bay Area this week and I was able to go to the one against San Francisco State which was played at the College of San Mateo. The weather wasn’t ideal, but at least it was only raining for one inning and the Chargers triumphed 8-3. More game photos next week after I get back from hitting the powder in Tahoe this weekend!

I was reading outside today when this curious little crustacean came by and I decided to dust off my camera and take some macro shots. I shot all of these with a 50mm f/1.4 on extension tubes at around f/11. Extension tubes can be a whole lot cheaper than buying a macro lens, but one of the big trade-offs is the having to manually stop down your aperture, which means your viewfinder gets darker and harder to see your subject through as you stop down. Make sure you click on the images to view them larger.
