I'm really digging this mistake. I was playing around with my cellphone camera and its settings, took a test shot and what I got was a painting. So of course I took some more to try and get some spiffy patterns. I know this is caused by slow shutter speed but usually you get more of a blurry photo. With my phone camera it seemed to streak the lines and make them glow.

I was playing around with some settings in my phone camera and I took this at a local jazz club. Some how the players turned ghostly white. Thought it was an interesting ef-up.
Sometimes it's just fun to post process your images to black and white.
I thought this pic would make a good post for Memorial Day Weekend. Captured at night at the Veterans Memorial Park in Merritt Island.
Cross processing slide film was a fun technique. This shot was taken at the Knapps Castle Ruins Santa Barbara, CA.
I see a lot of these types of photographs out there and I can see why. The wood walkway that leads out to the beach just looks so good. I shot this with shallow depth of field because I want the viewer to look past the walkway and straight to the ocean and sky.
I was hoping the big dark clouds behind this colorful lifeguard tower at Cocoa Beach would turn nice and pink at sunset, but I'm glad it didn't. The dark grey clouds really provide a nice contrast between the bright reds and blues, really popping the tower.
This shot was taken at the Cocoa Beach Pier in Florida. The nice thing about living on the east coast is when the sun sets, it sets in the west and the light source is behind you (front light) and is facing the subjects. On the west coast it's harder to photograph anything at sunset because the light source (sun) is behind your subject creating dark shadows (back light).
Shot with my GoPro I tried to center the point of this giant square and with the wide angle lens of the Gopro it creates a pretty cool effect elongating the scene.
I remember driving the back roads of eastern Washington when I came across this decrepit old cabin. That day the sky was full of ominous clouds. I quickly pulled over. I composed my shot, while the camera was still on the tripod I had to spot meter the scene to get the correct exposure with my handheld pentax spot meter.

Sometimes when you're capturing a photo and it's fine the way you originally intended the shot to be, for one reason or another, it sparks a creative idea to take another - to get an even better photo. This is really when all the magic happens.
This abstract gator shot is the perfect example. The first shot was nice but I noticed something when I reviewed the file. The ripples in the water were very close together. Usually you get waves that are spaced far apart, or you get nothing at all and the water is silky smooth. I quickly recomposed my shot, angled the camera to the side a bit, because I wanted the lines to run diagonal. What I got was an awesome shot of the gator with cool abstract lines.
So remember, your photos can spark ideas you never thought of before giving you something a bit more unique than the average photograph.
I was out capturing the elements this weekend when I noticed there were two types of fishing going on in the river. One was using only stealth-like ninja nature skills and the other using technology with trick fly's to catch fish. It was very cool to see how all of us use the waterway.
Although I really loved my medium format Pentax 67, I'm looking forward to all the new upcoming technologies and advancements in photo gear. The things we can all do today is amazing! Once I got my Nikon D700 digital camera, the quality was so great, I sold my beloved Pentax and never looked back. I'm thankful for #TBT so I can remember those simpler times
I lugged my big camera a long way, deep within Chiricahua, to capture Big Balance Rock.
There are many reasons why you would want to edit your photos, whether it's for basic touch ups, color corrections, or maybe you want to make it a better, more powerful, photo that tells a story. Whatever your reason have fun and get creative. There is no shame in editing photos, in fact, it can be downright addicting, and sometimes you can really over do it.
Below, I got a really neat shot of a Giraffe with my GoPro. I thought it would look more interesting by fixing the sky, adding more trees in the background and adding a little bokeh to isolate the head and create a longer perspective.
Shot with GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition hand-held. I placed the camera on timelapse mode and stuck the camera way out in front of the giraffe's face. Then I chose the best photo out of the bunch. Man, this little camera does take crazy good shots.
