Happy St. Patty's Day! This is the famous temple bar in downtown Dublin which no doubt will be packed tonight.

This is Santa Monica Pier with Pacific Park.

Thanks to @borsch for helping me learn this technique and @aydinbuyuktas for the inspiration. Also check out @dodiefdi who does some great portraits with this technique.

The jetty started getting steep, so I had to climb it.

I finished my #BendItLikePeckham tutorial today and it will be ready to share tomorrow. I'm super excited to get your feedback and see what shots you guys create. If you haven't already, let me know in the comments that you're interested in learning how to shoot and edit these earth bending photos so I can be sure to tag you when I post the tutorial tomorrow.

The ocean was playing tricks on me yesterday. I'm just glad I didn’t get swept away! 😀

I've been out shooting more bending photos for my upcoming earth bending tutorial. This was a relatively simple one (only 2 photos), but it took a while to get the right angle and wave shape. I left my drone hovering while I stood waiting for the perfect wave. I don't always go out with a specific plan, but in this case I had pre-visualized something like this, and was pleased to actually make it happen. It often doesn't happen that way.

I hope you had a great weekend. Afternoon light over triangle-shaped Newport Island. I’ll be back with more bending soon.

It sounds like a lot of you are interested in learning how to do the bending shots, so I’m writing some notes for a little video tutorial that I’ll put together as soon as I can. If you haven’t already, let me know in the comments that you’re interested so I can tag you when I post it.

This one is Balboa Pier in Newport.

Pier Bending, Huntington style.

I created this image from 8 photos blended in Photoshop. If enough people are interested, I may put together a quick tutorial of how to make these. Let me know in the comments if you are. Also, let me know if you've done these yourself - I'd love to see yours.

I hope this sunrise over Newport Harbor brightens your evening.

Cove bending!

Looks like a nice little neighborhood. I just hope those boats get a lot of use.

Bending Pelican Point and Little Treasure Cove.

Earth bending near one of my favorite rock arches. Check out that middle house: I love the roof and how it opens to the sky.

Sunrise this morning above Bay Island (connected to Balboa Peninsula in Newport).

I often wonder what it would be like to live somewhere like this. On the surface it looks so nice, but being able to afford to live here must come with its own costs (and I'm not just talking monetary). Then again, what are the costs I pay to live the way I do?

Technical details: 12 photo lateral panorama combined to a 55MP image. I flew in a grid pattern to capture the whole island since staying at a legal altitude didn't allow me to capture the entire island in one photo.
