Floating



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.

Charles



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.

Cat on a Rot ting Roof



There were two cats hanging out on the roof of this old building. See if you can find the second cat in this smaller photo shot with a wider lens.

Kiteboarders





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.

High Rise Row



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).

The Beach




Woohoo! It's my first post and why not have a shot of the beach to get it started.
