Looks like I’m on a self portrait kick. I’m my toughest subject to photograph, so its probably best to rise to the challenge more often this year. Also, my dating profile needed a new pic to scare the ladies off haha.
This may look heavily edited, but it wasn’t hard to create. I used Superimpose to reposition, mask, and blend the tiger over my face. I really haven’t used the app much before, so it was a challenge figuring out the controls. Not the most intuitive user interface. Once I was happy with the blend, I took the image into Snapseed, applied a vintage and grunge filter, before finishing it off with a round tilt shift effect around the face.
First, let me say that this image definitely looks better larger. You can see it in fullscreen on my fb page (be sure to like it while you’re there.)
I was driving some backroads in Morgan Hill when I came upon a cool scene that I had to shoot. While I was shooting that scene, I saw pelicans fly over and land in the water. I figured I would try to snap a few pics of them with my Nikon, not expecting anything too special. I have to say that I’m pretty pleased with the results though.
I also wanted to promote Shannon’s fb page and blog today. She’s the brains and talent behind Seeing Spots Photography. I’m happy to say that, in just a few days, she will be flying almost 3000 miles to come shoot some cool locations with me. That means you get to see how landscape photographers from opposite coasts approach the same scenes and you’ll also get to see what our creative minds can come up with together.
We’ll be going to Joshua Tree (her suggestion,) Big Sur (my suggestions,) and whatever else we can squeeze into this weekend. I’m excited to finally meet Shannon so we can talk shop and throw around ideas for some future endeavors. I’m sure this trip will be a nice creative kick in the butt for both of us. And I promise I won’t let her leave CA without a ton of awesome new content to share with you all.
Not really much to say about this one. This is Juno.

My brothers cat has been missing since Friday. I guess hes already moving on because he brought this guy home last night. He shares the same mom as the missing cat, so he has some similar features. I think I’ll be capitalizing on his cuteness while hes still little because, lets be honest, everyone loves pictures of kittens.

This is another cinemagram. I like it because I think it would make for a cool photo. The changing of the pupils and slight eye movement aren’t extremely interesting, but maybe just enough.
I noticed this app tends to add a little noise and movement in random areas that I haven’t selected to show movement. If you look between her eyes you may notice it too. I get annoyed when an app destroys pixels for no good reason.
I wasn’t going to share this here because it has nothing to do with the iPhone or iPhoneography, but people are loving it on my personal facebook so I thought I would share with you before I share on my photography page tomorrow.
I like to try wild tutorials once in a while to push my creativity and photoshop skills. This image was fun to create and the 4 hours flew by until I got light headed and realized I hadn’t eaten anything in a long time. Believe it or not, only 2 images were used to make this. Enjoy.
This pretty much sums up her life.
I saw some other people doing weird stuff with their eyes, so I wanted to give it a shot too. I wish I’d shaved yesterday cuz I’m getting scruffy haha.
It was pretty windy yesterday. What better way to show that than a windmill going nuts?
I like this Cinemegram app quite a bit. The one thing that bothers me is the inability to edit your images other than applying one of a limited number of filters they have. They don’t always work on every image, which means sometimes you’re stuck with a dull image if the lighting sucks, like in the windmill shot.
