NPR featured Stuck On Earth the other day. You can listen to the audio bit of it here! And thanks again to everyone that came to the very special Stuck on Earth session in San Francisco – that was a great time! :)

Fun in LA

Thanks again everyone for coming out for the photowalks lately!  I know it takes a lot of time and effort — so I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.  And yes, I plan on coming to [your area] at some point in the future… since I want to go everywhere, why wouldn’t I come there?

Daily Photo – The Pier in Santa Monica

After we finished shooting down on the beach, we moved the photowalking party up to the pier.  There was just an edge of light left when I took this photo.

The dock is in two parts.  The first part has the amusement park and the second part extends further out into the sea.  Sometimes docks aren’t so great for night shots because they are shaky and move with the waves.  But this one was pretty solid — I suppose because of the rides and whatnot that also need to be stable.  Anyway, it was more than steady enough for the very long exposures need for the shot.

    Nice crisp photo,loved the video on DX 7.Had to do the same on my 40D to get 7 shots in.You will now have to drive on the right side of the road in NZ which is the left hehe!!!!

  • Vincent Randal

    Casper, what’s a DX7 and what video are you referring to? Am I wrong in assuming you are talking about auto bracketing on your 40D?

  • Vincent Randal

    Trey, for this photo you say “There was just an edge of light left when I took this photo.” Do you mean that the sun had not completely dropped below the horizon? Where was the sun with respect to this scene?

  • Casper van Zyl

    Sorry Vincent,to rushed its the Nex 7 also when doing HDR I set -1 0 +1 then turn the dial to -2 0 +2  -3 0 +3 and don’t use the 2 zeros. If you click on the live button top of page you can watch the video. Thanks for point out my faults its a SENIORS moment hehe!!!
