Been Skiing Lately?

I’ve had some busy winters, so I haven’t been doing much… actually, I’m a snowboarder.  But I recently had a friend tell me that they notice that a LOT of people are using GoPros on the mountain.  Have you noticed this?

Daily Photo – The Long Dock

On one of my final nights in San Francisco, I walked out on the dock off the Embarcadero to see what I could see.  There were nice views in every direction, and one of the best was looking straight back up the dock at the Transamerica building.

This wide-angle 14-24 lens is one of my favorites, but it does have one little problem that can also be an advantage.  It takes whatever is in the center of the frame and makes it quite small.  The opposite of that happens on the edges, where things get quite spread out.  So, I did that little trick here to help the Transamerica building to seem a bit taller.

最近滑雪了吗?

最近几个冬天过得很忙碌。所以就没怎么……其实呢,我还玩滑雪板。不过最近一个朋友告诉我他们发现很多人都在用GoPros。你注意到了吗?

每日一瞥——码头长道

离开旧金山前的某天晚上,我跑到英巴卡迪诺附近的码头一探究竟。各个方向都有美景,径直回首观看泛美金字塔大厦的码头长道就是一种享受。

这只14-24广角镜是我的爱将之一,但也有个小问题——有时它也能转化为优势。凡是被它圈在中心的东西,都会变小,而边缘则恰恰相反,一切景物都得以延伸扩张。所以我想了个办法,让泛美金字塔大厦显得更加高大。

  • Love this and all the beautiful lights leading to Transamerica – super Trey! Have tons of fun at the photowalk!

  • Casper van Zyl

    Nice photo

  • GinoBarasa

    …aaaaaaaaand?  The trick is?

  • Casper van Zyl

    The trick is you have to have a camera,he!he! Hi Gino

  • yep, I see a lot of GoPros cameras, on helmets or even more often they put it on the long stick and film themselfs…not sure why… seeing yourself up and close going down and not much else might get boring after a few seconds

  • Very cool use of the wide angle lens Trey….I miss SF.  

  • Stephen Clarke

    Hi Trey,
    Yes, I’ve been seeing quite a number of GoPro’s this year on the slopes.  Of course, you see the shredders using them so that they can watch and rewatch that ‘wipe out’ that gave them the ‘spinal’, but I noticed mostly they are being used by parents videoing their kids learning to ski.  I’m going to be picking one up for my next heliskiing trip to Whistler for sure!  I wish the GoPro was around when I was racing formula cars… it would have been a whole lot easy to use than jury rigging a handycam on the roll bar!

    As for your “trick” too make the building look larger in today’s photo… I’m not sure that I understand exactly what the trick is, but my best guess is that perhaps you took the initial photos with the building not centred in order to make it look larger and then centred it in the final crop?

  • Beautiful shot, love the leading lines…

  • Nice perspective.

    Happy Myanmar New Year to you all.

    Best wishes,

  • the trick: “It takes whatever is in the center of the frame and makes it quite small. The opposite of that happens on the edges, where things get quite spread out.” you put the bottom of the tower in the center – it is small, the top of the tower is near the edge – it spread out. Appears to be longer.

  • Nice Shot Trey, this is a nice spot, just beware of the people around, there’s a lot of Camera Snatchers in that area, just have to be careful especially at night.As always, you deliver…courtesy of http://www.rockingmyfantasy.com/

    I like how the lights go infinitely and vanish. I can’t wait to visit San Francisco
