Night Photography

Traffic Trails in YosemiteHalf Dome at NightRed Light and Stars Half Dome, Leaves, and Stars Lights and StarsI tried my hand at night photography and¬†discovered something I already knew–that I LOVE night photography. I ended up getting these amazing photos of stars, and sure there is some noise from the high ISO and they’re a little bit fuzzy, but I am incredibly pleased with them as a start.

I can’t wait to learn more and get good at taking pictures of the stars!

Yosemite Super Moon

Half Dome Yosemite Super MoonIt’s been ages since I’ve posted because I made the crazy decision to move to California and spend the summer living and working in Yosemite National Park.

That said, I figure it’s time to start sharing photos from my time here.

These are a few of the photos I took during the brilliant super moon last night in Yosemite. It was beautiful!  Trees in Super Moon LightMan Super MoonSuper Moon and Trees

One of my co-workers is definitely going to give me crap about doing another photography post this week, but I couldn’t resist! My friends invited us to a spontaneous evening barbeque in celebration of the magnificent weather, and I really wanted to try out my new camera in the dim light. I must say that it performed really well. I’m impressed!

Day 67: Meteor Shower

Meteor ShowerPossibly motivated by the apocalyptic-sounding wind storm going on outside my window, tonight I did a paper collage of a meteor shower. Even though it looks simple, it took a lot of patience and gluey fingers. I’m happy with the results, though. Actually, I kinda love it!
