My Own Back Yard

I travel so much and when I am home I seem to be chained to my computer catching up on business, processing images, making prints, etc that I don’t get to shoot in my own backyard that often. So when Bob & Charles contacted me for a few days of personalized shooting I said yes right away. I never turn down a chance to shoot in my backyard. We began the day photographing Portland from across the river at the East Side Esplanade where we worked on panos. I used my 70-200mm VR II in vertical orientation to minimize distortion and to get higher resolution…

Our next stop was the west side of the river where we wandered the streets looking for interesting subjects. I worked several reflections and the graphic elements of the buildings…

We spent several hours working our images before heading out for an evening of shooting. Union Station was our first stop where we did some HDR work. I chose my fisheye…

Our final destination was to photograph the cityscape at night but we were rained out with a Portland shower so we called it a night and headed back to prepare for another adventure tomorrow.

Images captured with Nikon D3X, AF-S 70-200mm, AF 16mm Fisheye on Lexar Digital Media
