Here is a time-lapse compilation video that I made while on my East Coast trip. Sadly all good things must come to an end and now I am on my way back to the West Coast and was in CLT typing up this draft as I head to LAX. Anyway, let me know what you think!
Thanks for all the hospitality! Can’t wait to come back East!
With the Exploratorium opening next week, the back side of Pier 15 should be open up to the public (not sure if it is closed off due to construction). With a view of the Bay Bridge’s Bay Lights to the east and the City’s skyline to the west, Pier 15 can be a new hot spot for photogs. What do you think of the view?
Well, I found myself back at the Embarcadero this past Sunday. I was just planning on heading home right after work but my brother wanted to go out and shoot. So I went and grabbed my camera from home only to find it dead when I tried using it. Burn… Well, More panoramic shots from my cell phone. Cheers!
Last weekend I was down at the Embarcadero with my brother James. While I was there, I took several panoramic shots of the area with my Samsung Galaxy Note II. I’m pretty impressed with the quality of the picture and how fast the phone processes the image. Below you can view both the untouched original photo followed by a quickly edited version. Let me know what you folks think about both original and edited image or how great cell phone cameras are or how I need more practice on Photoshop. Thanks!
Back in 2011, when Google+ was only available through invite, I went on my very first photowalk. I was, still am, New into the world of photography so I though that this would be a great experience. And it sure was!
The photowalk took place on the campus of Standford. There were a ton of people that came out for this photo walk, big names and everyday people like myself. Thomas Hawk was there and it was pretty cool watching my buddy Joe Ercoli about art and his personal project that he was working on Flickr.
I learned that there are a lot of friendly and helpful photogs (photographers) out there. Many of photogs like to talk gear and techniques. I also learned that I needed a tripod as the day got darker.
Here’s one of the photos that I took from the photowalk, the James H. Clark Center:
The photo with my camera resting on my camera bag. I don’t know the settings and what it was shot with (I’m blogging from my phone so I don’t have all the details on me). All I know is thatthis was one of my first attempts to HDR. The photo is eh, it’s a decent start.
Standford is an amazing and gorgeous campus. I can’t to go back and take pictures of there. I’ll probably need a whole afternoon on the campus since the place is so vast.
