    Helix Bridge

    If you have ever been to Singapore then you no doubt no where this area is. This is situated right in the middle of the city where the famous Merlion statue is located. This was the second time we stopped here for a port visit and I had already planned on coming to this spot. The first time I visited, we didn’t have enough time to see everything so I didn’t expect to come back here, but fortunately we did. The spiraling metal structure on the left of the picture is the Helix bridge. It is an awesome place to be at night because the bridge will change colors and every night there is a light show. The view for the light show isn’t as good from this spot as it is from across the river but you get to see the designs project on the building that you can’t see from the front. We waited here for about an hour or so so we could get the best lighting. I have several other shots that include different lighting situations like during twilight. I posted this photo because I thought that it was more flashy. I took this on a tripod and bracketed with -2, 0, +2. This is also a panorama because I still have yet to get a wide angle lens. The editing in Photoshop is always a pain with these types of photos because the stitching program never seems to match up all that great for me so I often have to do it manually. But hope you all like the results. If you got any questions about the processing just ask!

    Driver

    I liked this photo a lot after I saw it on my camera when I shot it. I was working on getting the right amount of glare in the picture when I was taking it which was a little tricky and I couldn’t have known that it would have worked out this good when I was looking through the viewfinder since light can be tricky like that. This was one of my first few shots that I had taken with my Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 lens. This is a less expensive version of it’s Nikon counterpart and in my opinion works just as well. Although, it would be nice to have the auto-focus feature. The tricky thing is that when you look through the viewfinder with a wide open aperture like I was using, you don’t actually get an accurate representation of what it will look like in the actual photo. I didn’t know you could press the depth of field preview button at the time to do this so I was going off experience with different apertures and hoping for the best on this one. The sun couldn’t have been in a better position when I took this. It produced an awesome glare that gave the image a movie poster feel and really worked out. This is my buddy Steven Feusi who happened to be the driver of a sweet old Chevy Nova that ended up being extremely photogenic. Hope you guys like the results!

    Getty Museum

    This is an old shot that was taken at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California. I have been going through some older pictures that I haven’t posted since I haven’t been able to take any new pictures recently. I still have a few more up my sleeve but my stash is running low so hopefully I will be able to get some new photos soon. Once I get off this deployment I will finally go back to getting pictures all the time. If you live in California or are visiting and interested in museums, then I definitely suggest visiting the Getty Center. This has some of the nicest modern architecture and outdoor facilities that I have seen of this kind. From the cool white rounded buildings to the cement and solid stone structures, this place is a modern architecture photographers paradise. I’m not even big in to photographing modern architecture but I couldn’t help myself here. There are all kinds of awesome exhibits to visit and nice gardens to view on the outside as well. I took this shot inside one of the museum buildings while I was wandering around. I loved how minimal and pure this area looked and the light lit the area up with a nice clean white. It was a little dark so I used a tripod for this shot. People probably thought I was a weirdo considering everyone else was taking pictures of the actual art in the museum and I was taking picture of a staircase. O well. The best part about the place is that it is free! You can check out there Plan a Visit area of their site to find their hours, and location. This shot was a RAW image file that was edited in Photoshop CS6. Minimal processing was done using curves and white balance adjustments.
