Farook Portrait

Farook Portrait. It has been some time since I have updated my website/blog. I figured I would share a portrait that was taken back May of 2014. My dear friend Adam had given me a good trim and spring was in full motion. My beard is substantially bigger now but that can easily change with a quick stop to the barber shop.

Most of my current pictures and updates are now found on Facebook or Instagram but this website is still here for me to share some of my other wonderings and photography. Hope you enjoy the new layout and design.

Cheers!

Montana! I was able to break away for a little bit and snap some pictures while working up in Power, Montana. These photographs were taken along the I-15 freeway that connects Helena and Great Falls. We happened to be passing through right during sunset on a cloudy afternoon providing for some spectacular images of the beautiful countryside and the Missouri River. Enjoy!

Spring Moab Trip 2013

Tuesday, May 21 2013, 7:51pm

Spring Moab Trip 2013! Last weekend I had the opportunity to sneak away to Southern Utah and enjoy the red rocks and national parks that surround Moab, Utah. I was able to catch up with my good friends Hilton and Fred who were visiting from California. They had spent the whole week backpacking and I was able to join them for the last part of their trip. I then spent the rest of the weekend with Mike exploring Arches National Park. It wouldn’t be a weekend away without taking a few pictures. Enjoy!

Portrait Photography

Wednesday, 13 March 2013, 6:45pm

Portrait Photography! Over the last few weeks I have been taking various portraits at work for our new marketing initiatives. It is always fun to develop my personal hobbies while at work. It makes going to work everyday such a pleasure.

Today was one of the rare occasions where I ended up on the other side of the camera and got a pretty good portrait.

Multimedia Engineer! Work is keeping me busy today with a fun new project involving the production of safety training videos and other various marketing materials. It is fun that my personal hobbies often translate into projects for work.

Red Butte Gardens

Red Butte Gardens! After several months of time consuming school and work I managed to take my camera out of the closet. It was great to go up to Red Butte Gardens and photograph some of the beautiful flowers. It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Salt Lake.

Big Piney Wyoming

Big Piney Wyoming! Work sent me all over the mountain west this summer with trips to Nevada, Idaho, Utah and Wyoming. I had many opportunities to capture this beautiful landscape with my trusty little Canon S95.

One of the jobs sites I worked at was located near Big Piney, Wyoming. I was impressed with the vast landscape, beautiful scenery and the open sky with picturesque cloud formations.

This picture was taken just south of Big Piney driving toward Kemmerer on my way back to Salt Lake City, Utah. It was edited using Aperture 3 and captured on 5 August 2011 around 6pm.

Detailed Tacoma Truck

Detailed Tacoma Truck! It has been a beautiful week in Salt Lake and the weather finally getting warm. Every so often I like to pamper my truck with a nice detailing and cleaning. The shop does a great job and they have a professional crew comb through every edge to make sure the truck is looking its best. Although the truck is starting to show its age, I still like to keep it clean and looking sharp.

I took a few images with my phone and the sunlight was a little too harsh so I grabbed my Nikon D300 and turned on exposure bracketing to convert this to a HDR (High Dynamic Range) image. Unlike my Classic Car HDR images which have a very cartoonish feel, with a few changes of the setting you can make an HDR image look very sharp and clean. I’ve included the “standard” non-edited image and the image after the exposure bracketing merge and minor adjustments.

Images (actually seven bracketed images) were taken with my Nikon D300 with my AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED lens without a tripod. The HDR merge was performed via Photomatix Pro and then brought back into Aperture 3. Enjoy!
