20170330: Joshua Tree funnies

So many times over the years, I have listened to people who do not open their eyes and walk in nature… “Oh nature never does 90 degree angles in anything.”   2 examples of 90 degrees in nature, naturally happening in ONE photograph….

I know the other day I did the “Wild & Crazy” light painting, here is one of my more subtle light painting moments.

20170327: When a light painter has too much fun!

Yeah, a trip into the desert, 4 different colors of lights and about 7 different lights to make this all happen. Yes, when I hit the shutter trigger, I then used a laser beam light on the back rocks for a 5th light source.

Just having way too much fun with my normal way too much equipment carrying habits.

OK, I started to study ADOBE AFTER EFFECTS in January 2017. I had a conversation with a person about doing a music video. I got a vision of what I wanted to do.

This is the DEMO release of it. I need to go back and adjust the timing of some images and smooth out some motions & transitions.

However, this is about 90% plus of that vision in action. Totally self training here, I have no one to confer with on this. YouTube has supplied me with the training videos and MY own get in there and PLAY around, trial & re-try attempts after attempts….

Enjoy the show folks!

Some days it sounds like it is raining outside, then I realize nope, Just a few birds in the tree over the courtyard, flapping wings and chatting to themselves.

The leaves are falling and the birds still gather, a time of renewal & reflections.

Happy New Year folks, may whatever the energies bring to you, may you weather it in the good faith of learning and understanding.
