Hey guys, last weekend we had a blast spending the night at Leslie Gulch. I plan on revisiting the area once more, but this past weekend we spent the night at Deschutes River Recreation Area. This is the first time I took my Sony A7iii for a test, I'm still an amature and a long way to being a pro. What you're seeing now is the beginning of becoming a better photographer. I'm quite pleased with the photos I took during this trip, when we woke up the following morning we all decided to visit Mary Hill Stonehenge then Cottonwood Canyon State Park. It was such an eventful day and a rainy one. We had an amazing time and hope you enjoy the photos below and continue to follow this crazy adventure, at the moment I'm keeping an eye out for the weather, moonrise, and moonset so I can go take photos of the night sky before the full moon occurs later this month. Hope I'll see ya on the next blog post :)
Hello again, 2 days ago I went out with the family to the painted hills and smith rock. Fun day for all of us, though it was almost a whoopin 5 hour drive. Nice scenic drive for the family, anyways I recently got a 30mm f/3.5 macro lens that I wanted to use and test out. I'm not very technical with the gears so I don't know a whole lot about them, however the photos I took that day I'm quite pleased, after we left the painted hills we all went to smith rock, missed the sunset but i was able to get a photo in. Thats it for this weekend and as spring break begins this week, we'll see what other adventures awaits us.
Earlier in the night I drove out to Cannon beach to do night sky photography, took about an hour and 40 mins, I was trying to look for a spot to take a photo of haystack rock, ended up driving down south of cannon beach at Tolovana Beach State Recreation site. Normally I see bunnies scattered all over the place(probably still cold for them to be out), pretty sure they're hiding haha.
Anyways I came here to do night sky photography, however I didn't like what I was originally seeing so I decided to do a star trail with a 10 minute long exposure. It came out like I hoped it would but didn't get the foreground in focus. I'm still learning all of this stuff so I thought it'd be a good opportunity to practice to get better. Used Sony A6000, 35mm lens, ISO 200, F1.8, and 10min exposure.
I'm still planning the next trip for this coming weekend so we'll see what adventure awaits us! :)
Hey guys, I've been feeling sick this week. I did however went out to take a photo at the cove palisades, Two and a half hour drive from Portland, quite the drive through the night and arrived at around 10pm, I parked off the side of the road and waited for my eyes to adjust to the dark which typically takes about 30mins. I saw a cluster of stars on top of the canyon to the far right of the orion belt, did a little research and its the Pleiades star cluster.
Cause I was sick I didn't want to stay around for long, probably the worst idea to rush to take photos haha, anyways I wanted to do a panoramic of the canyon but didn't come out right so I just put 6 photos together which you'll find in "latest" tab. Thanks for coming by and reading my blog! Have a wonderful day :)
