Welcome

to my personal photography blog. I specialize in making unique and highly detailed photographs. Notice I said making and not taking. Yes I take photos but a lot of time and work is involved in pushing and punishing the pixels in my images to achieve the look I like.

Please feel free make comments about any of my photos. I enjoy constructive critiques, learning about locations to shoot or photography techniques. Click on the "Share Article" link to share any of my photos via Digg, Facebook, Myspace, etc.

Want to use one of my images in your own blog? No problem, but please make sure it links back to the original image here and do the right thing and give me credit. Don't crop the image, remove the watermarks or claim my work as your own. This has happened more times than I can count so I've had to report copyright violations to ISP's and regrettably the violators blog is usually taken down.

Can't we all just get along?

Lunchtime at the Academy of Sciences

Ok so maybe my imagination was running wild, but when I reviewed at this HDR sequence it looked like my favorite T-Rex was stalking this blissfully unaware kid. Maybe it was wishful thinking because I remember that he was being such a little brat and his parents, like many modern parents were ignoring his bad behavior being too busy with their cell phones to give a crap. Uggh don’t get me started on modern parents. Anyway in my mind this kid was the appetizer, his aloof dad was the main course and his compulsively texting mom was dessert.

Global warming simulator. I think Al Gore claimed he invented this place. Or was that the internet?

The Sea of Love


The Sea of Love, originally uploaded by big_pixel_pusher.

California Academy of Sciences, Steinhart Aquarium, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, Saint Valentines Day: I was waiting for Kathy and just sitting across from this large glass viewing window, thinking that the lighting in the room was very beautiful when this young couple walked up to the glass. I thought they were framed pretty nicely by it. Seemed kind of like a first date type situation. After taking the sequence of shots, I went in search of my own beloved girl.

The long and winding road

The architecture of the multi-level rainforest exihibit inside the California Academy of Science Museum has a lot of non-linear shapes and even curving elevated pathways. If it wasn't so hot in there I'd take photos of it for hours.

Human Sized Hamster Ball


Human Size Hamster Ball, originally uploaded by big_pixel_pusher.

The California Academy of Sciences features a 90 foot diameter glass dome in which a four story rain forest exihibit has been placed. It was nice and hot in there probably due to simulated global warming or something. All I know is my lens fogged over right away!

TREX Crossing


TREX Crossing, originally uploaded by big_pixel_pusher.

Entry hall of the Academy of Sciences in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. It's tough to take HDR sequences with lots of people moving around. Requires a lot of masking in Photoshop.

The newly remodeled and reopened Academy of Science Museum in San Francisco has a very large T-Rex replica that towers over the entrance hall. I took this shot from the third floor.
