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, this past weekend my family and I went to Leslie Gulch Campground. Holy moly its an 8hr 30min drive from Portland, OR. This place is soo beautiful, its near Jordan Valley, OR and Lake Owyhee Resevoir. I had a wonderful time here with my family, its a shame I didn't get to take more pictures because of limited time. Its a long drive back home and the kids have school so we didn't want to stay longer.
Anyways more about photography haha. There are a few photos I took during our stay at Leslie Gulch Campground, I wish I had taken more photos during the evening but the weather didn't work out well, I do love taking photos of the night sky and there's always next time.
The photos below were all shot on my Sony A6000 with the Sony E 35mm lens f/1.8 or the Sony FE 50mm f/1.8. I also used my Mavic Air in the area to do some drone footage, I'm still learning how to fly so this was an excellent opportunity to do so, I've provided the link of the video I put together that early morning.
Thanks again for coming by the website and checking out my photos. I have a couple more trips coming up because I want to start using my new camera, the Sony A7iii. Can't wait to see how it performs . Hope you enjoy the photos below.
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! :)
