Still working on the photos from the trip to Russia, you can see the first photos from Moscow on my prior post here. Like mentioned before, I was 4 days in St. Petersburg as well, moved between cities using the first hight speed train within Russia, better known as Sapsan or the Peregrine Falcon. The service […]

Video Slideshow of my Trip to Europe

So, I know I haven’t post a lot lately, but I was really swamped with some assignments and commercial work, mostly for my real estate virtual tours that you can see in HD VIRTUALS. As a remedy I am planning to start posting also some of that work here also in the blog, so I’ll […]

HDR Photos in Historic Nassau Church

So, I went to Nassau in The Bahamas once again, this time for business, I believe this is the 4th time this year and I set to go back at least twice more before the end of 2010. The good thing of traveling several times to the same place is that once you photographed all […]

A quick visit to the Miami Railroad Museum

About 4 weeks ago I went to the Railroad Museum, here in Miami. I really loved the place; there are plenty of possibilities and awesome shoot opportunities. The subject was ideal to try some HDR, like always I use HDR to try to show the image in a more realistic way trying to capture a […]

FARA (Formula and Automobile Racing Association) is an organization of auto racing that is primarily for amateurs or beginner drivers that will be compete with more experienced pilots in different classes.

Golden Boy

I was playing with pictures of a studio shoot I did a couple of years ago, trying to apply new techniques for post production, and I really liked the way this one turned out. I like the pose and mood of the model and I wanted to turn it gold. Hopefully you’ll like it as […]

Nassau, an idyllic place in the Caribbean

During the past 60 days I went to Nassau in the Bahamas twice, family vacation the first one, and then work…. Needless to say my camera was always with me, but I’ve decided to travel light and just brought with me the Nikon 18-200 VR and the Sigma 10-20 mm in both occasions. Man, what […]

Anhinga Trail, a Great Place to Shoot in the Florida Everglades

I woke up early yesterday for a quick trip to Anhinga Trail in the Everglades with some friends of the Kendall Camera Club, here in Miami. Anhinga Trail is a great place to shoot birds and some environmental photos, getting there by car is just about an hour from where I live. I brought with […]

Virginia Key Renaissance Festival

Yesterday I went down to Virginia Key in Key Biscayne, here in Miami to walk around and take some pictures at the Renaissance Festival. Just brought with me the Nikon 70-200 2.8, as primarily wanted to do some portraits and didn’t want to be changing lens there in the beach. Quite interesting subjects and characters, […]

My first year in microstock photography

I started contributing to microstock photo agencies about a year ago, I tried other outlets before that, none of them worked for me, or maybe, I was not patient enough to see the results. I was also really skeptical to license my images for such tinny prices, in some cases for cents, but a great […]

Viveza 2.0 a plugin worth every penny.

Nik Software just released version 2.0 of Viveza, a very powerful tool that let you selectively modify and edit images using their exclusive UPoint control technology to select the areas you want to edit. U Point control point technology is the reason I’ve been using the Viveza older version, because the easiness of use and […]

Shooting Birds…. Really Big Birds…

About 4 weeks ago I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot at the “Wings over Homestead” Air Show, where the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds returned to the Homestead Airbase after 17 years of absence. The world famous jet fighter acrobatic team was the star of the show, but the show also hosted other aircraft, including […]
