Marcoccia Photography – Sonora, Ca.

http://marcoccia.photography  – Sonora, Ca.

about  bodey marcoccia – (pronounced: BOH-dee mar-KOH-chuh)

Since receiving my first DSLR camera in 2008, I’ve consistently enjoyed the persuit of photography. I live near Sonora, California with my wife and two sons.

I love landscape photography. Whether it’s Pacific beaches, Scottish plains, Eastern Sierra mountains, or any other number of breathtaking locations I’ve had the fortune of visiting, I always try to capture the one shot that can make someone else feel like they’re right there with me.

I’ve spent the last few years transitioning and building my skills as a portrait photographer, and I’d be glad to work with you to create printed memories that will last a lifetime.

Hi everyone…Tahoe is sad. I want to go outside and play on my property. Dad says I get to muddy. Getting muddy is fun for Tahoe and Tucker. Can someone make it stop so I can play again. Dad won’t let us wrestle in the house, he yells at Tahoe sometimes…..but then I kiss and hug him and everything is better. Dad says if anyone wants pictures of their fur babies he is going to have his Spring Fur-Baby Photoshoot Specials. For only a few dog biscuits …. wait dad says $150 for photoshoot (45 minute shoot) and (1) 11×14 and (2) 8×10 prints included. This special will last until May 15th. Message for appointment or have your baby bark at me me and I’ll tell dad. I wuv my dad so much …. until next time Tahoe wuvs all of you too!

Yosemite, a different view – by Janet Martinez Photography

Janet Martinez Photography

With so many trips into Yosemite, I try to find a little different view of iconic spots if possible.

Mostly today was just breathing in the beauty and wondering around in places I don’t usually visit. There is always something I haven’t noticed before! This is Bridelveil Fall from across the valley as I was heading west in the late afternoon. The lighting on the granite caught my eye. — at Yosemite National Park

Laura Ashburn Photography

Carson Pass Wildflowers

  • Canon 5D mkiii camera
  • Canon EF16-35 mm f/4L IS USM lens
  • Focal length – 25mm
  • Aperture – f:11
  • Speed – 1/6
  • ISO – 160

3 stop soft LEE graduated ND filter for this.
Also shot in RAW and post processing done in Photoshop. This is a single exposure as well, no fancy techniques besides levels, curves, contrast, saturation, sharpening and some dodging. The red casts on the peaks were due to the fires we were having at the time. Not really a relevant detail but it did affect the light. 🙂 – Laura

Rainy Days – Ivy Tree Photography – Mt Shasta, Ca

Rainy Days

January 24, 2018

Rainy days sometimes means being stuck inside with nothing to do. So there comes a need for creativity in doors. For me I find it extremely difficult to photograph things inside, because my main focus is nature and the outdoors. But, I will take the challenge and try to find a tutorial online to find a little inspiration. I actually enjoy these kind of projects, because it forces you to step outside your box. So my creative project this rainy day week was capturing smoke and a few different editing processes done in Photoshop.

  • Nikon D5300 camera
  • Nikon 55-200mm lens
  • Focal length – 60mm with a 20MM macro extension tube
  • Aperture – 8
  • Speed – 1/320
  • ISO – 100
  • Off camera flash used
    Trigger & Tripod also used

Tahoe National Forest Photo Contest Winner – Joe Dondelinger – Foresthill, Ca

The Tahoe National Forest has a yearly photo contest and for 2017, it was recently announced that our proud member Joe Dondelinger has won both first and second places!!

Congratulations Joe!!

1st Place

“Celestial Wilderness” by Joseph Dondelinger, (Castle Peak)

Note from the Photographer:  This is one of my most achieved photos to date planned months ahead of time! This photo is actually a blend of two images taken at very precise and critical times at the same position and angle. On July 22, 2015, I set off on the brutal 1200 foot backpack trip up to near the top of Castle Peak carrying over 60 pounds of gear, including all of my camera equipment! I also carried up my iOptron Sky Tracker, which plays a crucial role in capturing the most detailed shot of the Milky Way possible and was the first image I captured, which also had to be taken in between the sunset and moonrise 45-minute window. During the 4-minute tracked exposure, I managed to capture a spectacular meteor to the south! After this shot, I moved the camera just a few inches over to a stationary tripod keeping the same angle and prepared for the moonrise so I could capture the foreground image just a few minutes later! Timing was impeccable with this as I had to shoot my foreground quick and on time just as the moon was rising, so the moonlight and the warm glow from the headlamp in my tent stay in the right balance! Then finally later in post production I blended the two images together. What I love most about this image is how I can truly reflect upon my memories of just how amazing this little camp spot was that night and the success of all of my hard work to achieve this photo!
