Drive From Reno to Brightwood...
There's this lonely tree along side of 395 in Northern Cali...covered in shoes...so I took a driving break to lob a pair of my old running shoes into its branches.
Coming into Pendleton, Oregon
Brightwood tavern..... Home.
There was some questions as to what Camera and lens I use..(Muddy)...well...here it is...this is what I carry with me everywhere...traveling or surveying.
The 10-22mm is my favorite lens..but if you zoom out to 10mm ..its fisheye and can readily distort an image...which is mostly cool except if its a person that appears twice as wide as reality.
The 28-135 is a good all around lens to get in closer...I wouldn'y mind a 300-400 mm lens but then it would be too much crap to carry and probably make me lazy.
Sony Video Cam...cause sometimes you just need video
Pocket wizards...one on the camera and one on the flash...lets me trigger the flash remotely up to 1/2 mile distance, also can use one on camera and one in hand to trigger camera remotely up to 1/2 mile distance...
Spot personal emergency locator beacon...if need to send your position to somebody instantly without cell coverage so they know where you are...push a button, If you need to call in the air cavalry because you just drove off a cliff in Death Valley...push another button
Canon Speedlite...this thing is so powerful...can also be used in stroboscopic mode for a sequence of extremely fast flash's for some exotic effects.
...And of course the iPhone...with the DSLR remote ($20 app) ..you can trigger the camera remotely using the iPhone and the photos are sent to the iPhone or/and a laptop. Also the Hipstamatic iPhone app ($1.99) has different internal lenses/filters that create a vintage film look as in the examples below.
...and Adobe Photoshop for iPhone app... very nice as well and free.
Trying to do the ol' Johnny Cash, Bitter Tears album
regular iPhone camera shot at Johns Oyster bar (I think the Blackberry camera trumps the iPhone in quality..maybe because it has a flash)
iPhone again in La Grande, Oregon
as you can see...quite a difference...
