I went out a while back to try and capture the shuttle launch, but couldn't see anything from down here. Back in Tampa the launches were still easy to see in the late afternoons and evenings. Since I was sitting out there with my Nikkor 300 f/4 I ended up shooting a bunch of gulls and terns. Here's my favorite from that day.

My buddy Charles is in town visiting from Tampa. Here he is blogging while I fire 2 flashes in his face.
1 Vivitar 285 at 1/4 power bounced off of the ceiling to light the foregound, 1 SB-600 at 1/16 power with diffuser behind the notebook screen aimed at his face. Shutter and aperture were set to balance the sunset and strobes.

Today is a double shot of photos. Kiteboarding, also called Kite Surfing, uses a large parachute-like kite, a harness and a board that resembles a wakeboard. These guys were getting some serious air that looked like 20ft off the water.
Check out the trick sequence photo large by clicking on it.

Next to the large crane in the back middle of the photo is the Deauville Hotel. It was there in 1964 The Beatles performed on the Ed Sullivan show for CBS.
This photo is made up of 9 exposures from 1/2 - 30 seconds each, then combined in a process called HDR (high dynamic range).
