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…

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 […]

New York, I love you

New York, I love you

Visiting NYC was a great adventure as someone who loves photography. There are amazing architectures in the city that one may spend several days but cannot finish shooting the amazing structures. Meanwhile, I started to do some 360 degree work. Here is a sample that I really liked the result, which was taken in NYC […]

New York streets

New York streets

I really enjoyed walking in NYC. I did various shots of typical sites in NYC but I also wanted to create some new perspectives. This one is at the corner of the street turning to Ground Zero. It is a long exposure (about 35 seconds) with a ND 8 stops filter….

New York, Roosevelt Island

New York, Roosevelt Island

I was in New York for a few days. I stayed at a friend’s place in Roosevelt Island. Her roof top had an amazing view. About 1 hour after arrival, I did not want to miss the first sunset of my visit, and went to the roof top. I used my tokina 12-24 mm lens […]

Hawaii, to home or to beach

Hawaii, to home or to beach

This particular image has also been shot in Maui Island. I used my tripod and cable release to shoot 5 bracketed images of the scene with 1 EV step. I then merged the files in Photomatix and further post-processed using Lightroom and Photoshop. I tried to avoid using too much color saturation espiecially at the […]
