Two from Sutro Baths in San Francisco. We had tried to scout the place Sunday afternoon, but it was an absolute zoo...people everywhere. So we hoped Monday night would be a little more calm. And it was, but there were still people everywhere...especiall​y portrait/wedding photogs using the place to do bride and groom images...and some of them were pretty stuck in their own thing to care about anyone else...so both of these were blends of multiple frames to get the place nearly devoid of people. It was a challenge getting the exposures to blend, since they were all slightly different, but I think it worked out ok. I have not decided which composition I like better.

I decided on the Pluto trigger and valve. I chose it as it seems to do more than just splash photography and at a decent price compared to the others out there. We shall see how well it works soon.

Thank you. I was looking at pluto vs miops and am leaning towards pluto.

Brazos Bend State Park. You would enjoy it, lots of hiking, tons of wildlife...

Great! I live 20 minutes from here. I just need to "make" the time and get my butt there.

Very nice. I like the composition of #2 as well.
Yes, Sutro Baths, and all scenic areas of SF for that matter, is always busy. Weekends can be sheer pandemonium. Places like Baker Beach, Hawk Hill and Twin Peaks get packed with people.

thanks, me too...I would have preferred to shoot the whole time from there...but my friend got setup there first! I took #2 after he had called it quits.

Thanks. yeah, that place was insane...we did go to Baker Beach, but it was cold and overcast, and still found lots of people...some wearing clothes, some not...Hawk Hill was desolate the one time I went. Never been to Twin Peaks.

Sunset in Arches NP again last night. The rock here takes golden hour to another level.

While I was running around frantically looking for shots I looked up to see my daughter scrambling across rocks a little ways over. It was kinda neat.

Great shots. Greenhouse with high ceilings seems like a horror show to shoot at night unless you have an assistant following you around with an off camera flash. Did you end up using on-camera flash with some type of modifier (like the Gary Fong Sphere or similar). Just curious since i got asked to shoot an event at night in a space that has high ceilings with cross beams running flat below the ceiling. So if I try to bounce anything up the light is going to come down with harsh shadows of the beams everywhere. This is for my child's school for a Gala fundraiser for the school...nothing too serious and it's more just to document the event and I'm doing it as part of my community hours we as a family need to contribute to the school as a way to keep the tuition down. To boot, it's a Kentucky Derby theme with the ladies wearing these big hats which aren't going to help my cause with lighting as well. I feel like my only option is on-camera flash with a modifier of some sort. I don't have an assistant to walk around holding an off camera light for me..I'm doing this solo. Any advice...lol

Nice sense of scale with your daughter in the scene and I really like the 3D separation between that ridge and the rocks behind her.

Thanks! Yes, the 3D effect was what I was hoping for. This area is called “garden of Eden” and is super awesome! Endless possibilities for Photo compositions.

Just to update everyone interested in the picture I posted of my sensor a few days ago with those spots I couldn't get off after trying with the Aero-clipse and #3 swabs. I was going to buy some of that Smear Away solution that MedicineMan recommended to see if that would do the trick after making about 8 passes with the Aero-clipse. Before I did I thought I would bring it to Hunts Camera which is right down the street from me to get their opinion on it since I was a bit worried about whether I might damage my sensor and just some piece of mind since they have more experience. I showed them the spots and they even tried cleaning it themselves free of charge with my supplies a few times and they said those spots were on there pretty good and they don't do anything else except for the stuff that I use and that usually does the trick. Said I probably had them on the sensor for a bit and that they can get on their pretty good sometimes. He recommended a place called MidState camera nearby and said they can give it a try and are really good with that stuff. I guess they do all the camera work for the NE Patriots and Pawtucket Red Sox and bunch of the newspapers and TV stations in our area. I brought my camera to them and showed them the sensor spots and explained that I never bring my camera to the beach of anywhere really dusty, etc. I baby the thing. He looked at it and said they think they could clean it and it didn't look like anything bad. Said they use the Aero-clipse stuff and if that doesn't with they have another solution that people in their business use. They called me back about a day and a half later and said he got it cleaned. Said they had to use the second solution on the two bigger spots but got the smaller ones off with the first stuff they used. The sensor looks like new and no issues or anything. They actually only charged me $45 which I thought was fantastic for the quality of work they did. I'm going to be a bit more diligent in the future about blowing off anything I see on the sensor and not waiting for it to adhere like the ones i just had cleaned off. I think my issue was that I never really wanted to mess with the sensor for fear of damaging it and I never noticed any problems or saw the spots in my photos because I was almost always shooting people and my children in very wide apertures. It wasn't until I started messing around with trying some landscapes and closing down the aperture that I noticed the sensor spots. I guess you live and learn. I'm just glad I didn't have to ship the camera to Sony or that I didn't ruin the sensor altogether. I'm one happy camper right now. Thanks again to you all for your helpful input as always, especially MedicineMan and TRhoads.
