hi my love, Golden Gate

hi my love, Golden Gate

I am very excited that I will be visiting SF soon. I plan to do some more Golden Gate photos naturally:) Let’s cross the fingers that I will be able to catch a beautiful foggy scene. A typical Golden Gate shooting starts about 1.5 hours before the sunrise, when it is still dark. One can […]

Point Reyes

Point Reyes

Point Reyes is a nice location for shooting some mystic photos, especially when one catches it with some fog…The drive from San Francisco is also pretty nice. This photo is a single shot with Nikon D800 and 14-24 mm lens. Enjoy…

Morning myth | San Francisco

Morning myth | San Francisco

I recently gave an interview (about my San Francisco, Golden Gate photos) which published at the UK news papers including Daily Mail, Daily Express and Daily Record Online and also the Times main paper. Below is the link to the one from Daily Mail…I took this photo an early morning, around 5 pm at Marin Hills just […]

Reflection of the Galaxy | Pfeiffer Beach, California

Reflection of the Galaxy | Pfeiffer Beach, California

We travelled on Saturday to Big Sur with Guillaume Desachy and made some Milky Way shot at the Pfeiffer Beach. We actually went there to shoot the Keyhole Arch, which we did at the sunset…Then while we were moving to Bixby Bridge to make some Milky Way photos, we found this small pond which nicely […]

Golden Gate, embedded

Golden Gate, embedded

I woke up at 5 am and drove to Marin Hills a few days ago to catch the sunrise and fog over the Golden Gate Bridge. I took this photo at Slacker Hill, which is about 15-20 min hike up. It was an amazing overview of the scenery. This photo is not an HDR. It […]

Sunset at Pacific

I made this one when we were driving from San Francisco to LA. We stopped on the way, at highway CA1, and watch the sunset. I made this HDR in photomatix then worked on it mainly in PS. I used a lot of dodge and burn to highlight the waves at the foreground and darken […]

California, killer wave

This shot may cost me my iphone 4S, if Apple does not replace it, and my D300 body if the service cannot repair…With a photographer friend, we were shooting the waves and surfers from top of a rock close to this view. A big wave like in the photo came and knocked us both out. […]

Myth 2

Myth 2

    I am still exploring black and white photography. I made this one yesterday when I took a guest to a viewpoint of Golden Gate. It was half covered with fog, of course not so surprising for Golden Gate. When I made the first photo called Myth, I had a straight perspective to the […]

Tree of Duo

Tree of Duo

This is another picture from my San Francisco architectural tour. While I was walking around the Market street, I saw this tree with pinky flowers. I placed my camera just under the tree and made the shooting vertical without really seeing the view. It turn out to be a good one. Even tough I liked the […]

Rocks, Sea and Golden Gate

Rocks, Sea and Golden Gate

One can find several places to shoot in San Francisco but Golden Gate is particularly papular… In this one, the focus is not really golden date, it is more secondary. I want to present it a way that its heavy figure would not really dominate the composition. Probably the rocks and the waves take the first attention.  Then the sky […]
