Tested photographing while ridding motorcycles

This was the first time I took my camera out and tried to photograph while ridding. I used my canon 5d and my canon 50mm f/1.8 (the plastic fantastic.) The qualities of these photographs is off do to the cheap lens But I actually walked out with some decent photos from this series.

I've now started using my canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L lens. It's a heavier set up but the qualitie is superior and I favor the wider focal lengths. 

 You will see more of these types of photographs in the near future

A homage to my film days.

For many of us photographers, we started off  photographing on film and film cameras and I like to think that's the best way to learn this craft. You begin to see how the the emoltion reacts to light and how your method of wet processing and printing changes the effects and quality of the images by the slitest change of the temperature of the water and chemicals to how much you adgitate. At first your images will be terrible but as you keep at it, you will begin to home the craft.

 About a year ago I switch over and started shooting fully digital but the process and the mind set I have when create a photograph hasn't changed. When I  photograph I always think in a ways of film, So that when I'm processing my images I can get the most natural quality in my images. I had alittle fun with these images and I fell in love with the crazy colors all over again. These are what I call digital film and I know that I went alittle over board with the film emulation but I'm in love with the color.

First time camping in the snow.

Last weekend three of us set out to try something new... Jorge, David and I had never been camping in dead winter, let alone in the snow. We went out the day after a storm had hit Southern California, leaving close to 14 inches of snow in the higher elevation of the San Gabriel Mountains. The same parts we would find our self in.

I knew this trip would have been a challenge due to the fact; I had to carry cameras to make a video to document the trip, as well as to create photographs that are both beautiful and captivating. This was something I've never done before while camping/backpacking. So this over night stay in the snow was the perfect test to see what I could improve on for longer excursions. I hope you enjoy these photographs and Video below. 

Enjoy life and keep moving forward,
