Here is my first successful attempt to shoot the Milky Way! This is a single image. We used a headlamp to light up the trees. Thanks to @jessicatallmanphotography & Steve for inviting us to stay with you on your campsite. It was great having you to motivate me out of my cozy sleeping bag. . .
I suggest investing in a decent headlamp, a sturdy tripod, a wired shutter release, the photopills app and a wide angle lens (rented mine from @borrowlenses) that allows you to focus manually. .

I love how San Francisco shows its support by lighting up our buildings. Mom & I stayed out past our bedtimes and had a wonderful time admiring the city lights.

Funny how nearby destinations sometimes get overlooked because they are so close to home. Ansgar & I hiked to Almere falls for the first time just a few weeks back. A few words of warning - the hike is 8+ miles round trip without cell service. Bring plenty of water, food, and wear proper hiking shoes.

A lot of pre planning goes into shooting along the coast. Location scouting, checking tides, web cams, traffic and sunset forecasts. Some days the sunset isn't what you hope for but I find it fun to challenge myself to still find beauty. Thanks @niravthakorphotography for being super spontaneous and meeting me last minute to explore. If the weather is great, I drop everything to go photograph it.

My first attempt at Astro photography was quite the adventure. I learned a lot and can't wait to get back to it! This particular night the moon was still up so we weren't able to capture the Milky Way. Can't wait to go back and try again with @photopills.

We found snow on Memorial Day weekend and met the lovely & talented @jessicatallmanphotography where is your next adventure?

Last weekend, we went on a road trip to explore Northern California. Its funny how we feel obligated to explore internationally when we are graced with such natural beauty just a few hours away. We hiked a ton (21 miles) and camped in our jeep. How did you spend your long weekend?

Most nights that I shoot, I talk nerdy with talented photographers. I love meeting new people & making friends. It's all part of my artistic process-continual inspiration. This sunset was particularly vibrant & there was only one other photographer on the beach. We barely spoke as we concentrated on capturing the light. Later that night I realized it was @csharrison on the beach with me, thanks to his epic instastories. Check out his awesome gallery. 😻🌤🔥 #oceanbeach #sunset #instagood10k #ocean #sanfrancisco

Throwing it back to when I shot black & white film. I recently visited this beautiful spot to find the sand 5' lower. There's something magical about capturing a moment in time that cannot be recreated. #tbt .

Happy Friday! This particular night was exciting because I introduced our friend to this beach. I also met Dylan & Drew, visiting from NY. Check out their great work! @twogood_visuals #martinsbeach #halfmoonbay

Ocean Beach is one of my favorite locations to shoot reflections with its flat beach and abundant sea foam. #sanfrancisco #oceanbeach #sfguide

Last week Mom took me to her old stomping grounds. It was incredibly windy and the tide was too high for what we planned. We were nervously excited to explore in this temporarily abandoned cave.
