The Other Night, Out By The Jetty

Last week, I had the opportunity to join a couple of good friends for some late night shenanigans.  It had been way too long since we'd shot together, and we finally managed to get something put together.  We headed out to the Spiral Jetty for sunset and then stuck around for some light painting.  When we got to the Jetty, we found a good amount of people milling about, so we switched gears and headed over to the posts instead.  I've shot at this spot a number of times and always manage to come home with some good images.  This night was no exception.













I actually shot two cameras side by side for most of the night.  These last four images were captured in infrared.  I wasn't sure what results I'd get, shooting at night, but figured it would be fun to give it a whirl.  It produced some interesting results, especially after some work in post.

A Few Flowers

A few weeks back, we had some family in town and headed down to Temple Square for the choir broadcast.  After the broadcast, we spent a bit of time wandering the grounds.  Of course, I spent the time chasing some of the flowers around with my camera.

A Bit Of Macro Work

I spent a bit of time this afternoon, playing around with the Canon EOS M5 and the EF-M 28mm Macro lens.  This was the first opportunity I've had to do any real shooting with this lens and I've got to say that it was a lot of fun.  Most of these images were illuminated by the built in LED ring light on the lens.  It did a pretty decent job of lighting things up.










For these last images, I had to switch to using an off camera speedlite as the built in LED lights were causing a pretty bad reflection on the surface of the water.

The Erie Canal

While in New York, visiting my sister, we made a stop at one of the locks on the Erie Canal.  It was pretty cool to check out this piece of history.
