Hummers

Completely fun to photograph, these fast little birds are not only fun but will give the amateur photographer tons of practice.

I use a Nikon D610, I shoot in RAW and have the camera set to Manual. I use one single focus point and I have it set one position down from center.

I have the camera set to Auto Focus – C (Continuous) and I have the AE/AF button set to Focus Lock. Continue reading “Hummers”

License to Explore

Life  has kept me and my camera separated, until today. My Valentines Day morning was spent with my love, my camera. Having a bit of “free” time to jump in the car with my camera was something that I have looked forward to for weeks!

I set my sites on Cameron Park Lake, in the center of Cameron Park, El Dorado County. During the “warm” months, there is a fee to get into the lake, but this time of year, it’s FREE!! 🙂

Cameron Park Lake

The trail around the lake is just over a  mile long, level, and an easy walk. I cannot begin to name all of the different birds on this lake! However, today I had my sites set on the swans Continue reading “License to Explore~ Cameron Park Lake, CA By Steph Gabler”

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

“Every Exit” up I-80 by JCameron – Gold Country Photography

Every Exit – Dutch Flat, a ghost story

My Wife and I moved to Grass Valley in 2011.  Up until then the only thing I knew about Grass Valley was that it was two words on the signs on Interstate 80. Since the move, I have had a quest to venture off of every exit on I-80,  east of Colfax. With a little help from my wife,  kicking me out of the house for the day, I started out on my adventure.

This is the beginning of a three, or four, or more part series. I did not take photos at every exit, or from every exits area, as it just was not that interesting. I am surprised so far with what I have found.

Today’s installment I leave Colfax heading east. I only get as far as the Alta exit as I spent most of the day in Dutch Flat, (In my head I am sounding just like good ole Huell Howser).
