28mm in the mail and huge redwoods = happy cam this weekend

My wife and I are headed to the huge redwoods in humboldt this weekend so I finally pulled the trigger on that shiny new 28mm 1.8 I’ve been eyeing.

I really like taking picture of huge trees, but I hate my 18-135mm, and my next widest lens is a 40mm prime. That was a bad combination and it needed fixing.

Hope I can figure it out and get you guys some good pictures this weekend!

Any tips for shooting big trees from my photographer friends out there?

Thanks for the advice guys!

  • Shoot early and at sunset, likely fog and lighting is the best
  • Stitch together for huge trees and landscapes
  • Put something in for scale so you can really feel the immensity of the trees
Orange Gills on Black and White Pine Needles : Selective Black and White Series
This took me a long time to make, but I’m really happy I finally figured out how to make images with selective black and white in photoshop!

Headlands, Golden Gate Bridge and Reflections
This might just be my favorite photo I’ve ever taken. I think I proved to myself my new camera and lenses were worth it in one night! 
A big THANK YOU to all the people who look at, like and reblog my photos, it makes it all worthwhile. Especially you guys who weighed in on the new camera/lens!
