Sea Swings, Ride at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

This evening I went on a shoot with the Bay Area Night Photography meetup group. A nice bunch of people to hangout with. The location was the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk in Santa Cruz, CA. We met up in front of the boardwalk arcade around 5.15PM, in the group picnic area and headed into the boardwalk. Sunset was supposed to be around 6.30PM and the rides close for the night at 7.00PM. So we had a little bit of time wandering around – and it was not quite dark yet. I went and shot the carousel, then the Fireball and then to the Sea-Swings – this shot. By this time it was around sunset. Since it was bright, I was using my 10 stop ND filter for the long exposures – which, in this shot very nicely brought out the sunset colors. It was a very nice sunset and a part of me was wishing I were on a different becah shting teh sunset – but it totally made this shot – my first ever of a amusement park ride.

After I shot this, I wanted to move on and shoot the Ferris wheel. I actually setup there – that when the security guards, very politely told me that I was welcome to take photos – but without teh tripod. Alas! At that point I decided to head out to the next venue – the Surfer\’s Museum near the lighthouse to photograph some fire dancers.

Lower Calf Creek Falls – 6

Lower Calf Creek Falls - 6
Lower Calf Creek Falls – 6, by Suprada on Flickr.

Lower Calf Creek Falls in the Grand-Staircase Escalante National Monument.

This photograph was taken during the \”Utah\’s Golden Circle” workshop/field seminar with Rick Knepp during October 2010.
October 20 was the big day – our big hike of the trip – and that too, we were hiking to the Lower Calf Creek Falls. The photographs I have seen from other photographers of this waterfall had me very eager to try my camera out on these falls.

It was 3 mile hike – but since we started a bit late, I was eager to just get to the falls. I made it to the falls just in time – the sunlight was full on the falls – however the shadows were creeping in from the left – it was past midday. The sun was full on the falls, making it difficult to get the silky smooth water flow. This was the perfect opportunity for me to try my ND filter – and I loved the filter. I put on my Neoprene socks and into the water I went with my 10mm wide angle with the ND filter and remote release.

I had a lot of fun photographing here. The neoprene socks and the ND Grad filter were absolutely essential – not to mention my tripod. I am very pleased with the photographs I made of this waterfall.

By the time this photograph was made, the shadow of the canyon was on the upper end of the waterfall. This caused the white patch of rock to glow and the water to turn bluish. In my post-processing, I used Tony Kuyper\’s photoshop action called \”Make it Glow\” to get the glow in the photograph like how it looked that afternoon.
