Shooting Rural Decay in Southern California

Using the Mextures App on my iPhone 6s Plus – I edited these images I captured in Southern California near Victorville, Barstow and Baker California. I’ve been struggling to evolve a new workflow using my mirrorless cameras with Eye-Fi SD cards and just my iPhone. I then uploaded them to Smugmug and posted here. It seems to be an awesome process that takes some getting used to. Southern Califonria has some amazing decay and rural subject matter. I hope to revisit there soon!

Will post some more images in a few days! Stay tuned…

Captured with A Panasonic Lumix 100-300mm Lens: Joshua Tree National Park

So the image above was captured just before sundown in Joshua Tree National Park with a Panasonic Lumix 100-300mm Super-Telephoto lens! One thing I don’t mention to people very often is that this is one my most often used Micro Four Thirds lenses as it is completely indispensable in my workflow as a landscape photographer and cannot recommend it enough. It’s very difficult to work with though and you have to have some patience because it’s easy to get motion blur due to camera shake or the photographer not holding still enough. This lens is now a veteran in my kit because some of my best portfolio images came from it. Yes, this lens is highly recommended for an M/43 landscape photographer and this is what I utilize it for 99% of the time.

Other than that – this is the third image that I’ve posted from my Smugmug site in the flow of utilizing SM embedded images from back up rather than resize and re-upload here to WordPress. It seems to have streamlined my blogging work somewhat as I try and form the habit of daily posting to the photoblog. I’ll try to give insight as a photographer, whenever I can.

Jesus I’m a Sinner…

Salvation Mountain near Slab City in Southern California, near the Salton Sea. The mail box and monument in the background was the works of Leonard Knight who spent his latter part of life building this monument and tribute to God. I think the image can speak for itself. Taken last April of 2015.
