Liberty School
Description
I got the idea on how to do this still life from an old British photog named Phillip McCordall. He has a bunch of how-to videos on YouTube and it was this one that inspired me. I used a Canon 580EX speedlite on 1/16th power in a 24x24 soft box facing straight down. Two white foam core boards we positioned on either side and two black boards were used to cover up most of the white boards so only skinny white reflections are seen on the side of the glass (I used cranberry juice in the glass BTW). I took another exposure where I moved a white board in front of the bottle to highlight the label then composited that into the final image.

Mesquite Sunrise I
Description
The day before I took this shot of Death Valley's Mesquite Dunes there was a raging sand storm with wind gust up to 70 mph that lasted into the night. The next morning it was still very windy so I decided to head up the west side of the dunes to be upwind, and also so I could catch the blowing sand in the light coming from the east. It's a kind of weird comp but does convey the conditions fairly well.

Coast of Spirits
Description
Shot at Sunset Cliffs National Park in San Diego, CA. This was my first visit to Sunset Cliffs NP and I had a hard time finding good comps. For one thing there were so many people there that it was almost impossible to get a shot without someone walking into your frame. So I used their ghostly figures to add to the mood of the shot.

Another shot from San Jacinto Wildlife Area. I saw this dry creek bed and thought it would make a nice lead-in. The new grass (or whatever it is) also looked great. So I started shooting this in overcast light but the sun peeked in below the clouds and showered this area with this awesome light.

Crops in the Wind
Description
I saw this scene while stopped at a stop light in Lakeview, CA so I pulled over and took a couple shots. It was extremely windy so there was no way to avoid the motion blur other than bump the ISO setting. But the exposure was still way too long. Even so, I like this shot so I'm just going to pretend that it was intentional and my artistic vision all along.
