As much as we dislike this building that blocks our view, it provided some focal points to this evenings sunset.

I made an attempt at shooting a family friends night time soccer game. I horribly underestimated the field lights intensity and the resulting images came out pretty damn noisy. I shot approx 345 images but most were trash. At some point I was shooting at ISO 20K. Those were unusable. While my Sony A6500 performed well the slow lens did not, lesson learned.

I haven’t used a DSLR in a long time so I decided to get rid of em. First the 5D3, then the 7D2. I have a love hate relationship with ebay selling. I spend too much time entertaining very stupid questions/requests.

Sandy just flew in last night so as usual we didn’t do a Christmas Card. Merry Christmas everyone and a Happy New Year. I’ve always wanted to do a shoot at this location but it was a used car lot and full of cars. They must have closed down so I took advantage of the situation and grabbed 3 speedlites. Magmod Magsphere camera right Maggrid camera left as a hair light and a bare flash pointed up to illuminate the Alameda sign.

I got sucked into one of those Facebook challenges. This time it was B&W, no people. Post one photo a day for a week.

Captured while at work & brought em over for a photoshoot. This proved to be quite difficult as he was pretty active. I had to ditch the tripod, but all this moving around created sll sorts of motion blur.

Went back to Livermore and while there were bunches and bunches of Turkeys, what caught my eye was the Deer… in the parking lot.

Had to go to Livermore today and it only seems appropriate that I run into Turkeys this time of year.

As always I have grand ideas for a photoshoot with the boys. It never works out that way. They are just too excited, hyper & don’t take directions. I thought a smoke machine would be cool for the Ninja shots, that was til Koa started attacking the smoke. I wish I would have gotten a photo of that.

 

Meanwhile the Men in Black…
