So I took these photos over a month ago but only finally got to process them out. I have been wanting to take photos of my bike for some time now but it always seemed to escaped me. Now with the new camera, I made it a priority (even it it was all shot in my garage). 2010 Nikon D300s. 1970 Honda CB450. Enjoy.

So my wife loves gardening and our backyard is a mix of fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, and roses. The thing that annoys her the most is when something messes with her plants.

[cue ominous music]

In steps “the vegetarian”. This little guy is my wife’s arch nemesis, and he is a little guy. He’s about the size of a quarter and I almost missed him. Once I saw him I rushed into the house and grabbed the camera. I shot this with a 50mm with a macro filter at 2.8. Using the macro is very unforgiving when it comes to focusing, and the all manual focus didn’t help much either. So I shot the little guy… with my camera. He lives another day. The vegetarian.

The Nishika N8000 lenticular 3-D camera. I recently was given this camera by my grandfather and is the latest addition to my collection. We set this up in the studio at work and it started to look like some futuristic spaceship (from the 80’s, like something out of THX1138). We used two monoblocks with softboxes, one directly above and one off to the left. For some reason I got a weird lense flair near the bottom right of my images (kinda ghostly). The camera uses standard 35mm film and uses 4 lenses to produce a 3D image. I have added two videos with Vincent Price explaining the N8000- way too cool and old.

Check out the Nishika flickr group for recent images taken with the N8000 camera.

3dstereo.com has a couple for sale if you are interesrted. $25 and they have a pretty good product description: Long considered the ugly duckling of the consumer lenticular cameras, the Nishika is now in high regard as the most versatile of the breed, because the camera features three aperature settings, unlike other lenticular cameras, which are only point and shoot cameras… The Nishika N8000 stereo lenticular camera uses standard 35mm color print film.  When viewing lenticular prints, no special glasses or viewers are needed. The camera takes four photos simultaneously from four slightly different angles using a 30mm Quadra Lens System of four identical lenses that are precisely aligned. The lenses have a fixed focal length and have such great depth-of-field that they are focus free.

www.snap3d.com can print 3D but they have to send it to Canada.

Want a more in depth look at how the Nishika 3D system works? Read this highly informative article.

Nimslo and Nishika Where are they now?

[wow, this is the most info I have put into a post yet and you haven’t even got to see the photos yet. Well stop reading and look below.]

For my friend Tyler’s birthday, his wife set up an appointment for him and his son to get haircuts at Hawleywoods barbershop and asked if I could take some pictures of the event. Hawelywood’s is a 40/50’s style barber shop for the guys that gives great cuts and straight razor shaves all accompanied by a cold PBR. Here’s the day at the Huntington Beach location. Happy Birthday Tyler!

So a couple weeks back I posted some pics from my phone of potential locations for a photoshoot for work. Every once in awhile we get to do some off-site shooting but the majority of the time is done in studio. That being said, we have a real lack of equipment for offsite lighting, so I brought along my stobes and reflector to help out. Basically I was the Art Director for the shoot but I brought my camera take some photos to show Treezoy what I had in mind. As a side note we met a cool photographer named John, who we geeked-out talking photo with. He has some pretty awesome work that you can check out at zenfolio.com

Here are some shots of the shoot.

As a precusor/warm-up to the 5/15 baby Ava shoot I went to one of my favorite places at work the train tracks. Whenever I roam the tracks it seems like I always find something new. For the last couple of months stacks of concrete ties that will replace the old wooden ones. So I have been looking at these things want to shoot them but just getting a chance. Having some time and my camera I went for it. Hoping this was a location scouting shoot for a future shoot with people. Anyone want in?

Over the last week I pulled out my old 35mm film Minolta, my first camera I got back in juniorhigh. Shooting digital I have forgotten how light my film camera actually was. It could be that there is not much to the X-370n, manual without the frills and plastic body not metal. Anyways, I thought I would shoot it along with my other film camera (Zeiss Ikon Contina) that I picked up around 2005 (I think). These cameras seem to be more of antique items now than anything else. Maybe someday I will go back to film. Maybe not!

One piece of advice given to me about wanting to shoot more was to get out and shoot. So I did. Here are a couple of pics I had taken over the past week. Thanks for the push Treezoy.
