Spot meter + AE-Lock

This is one of my favorite button combinations. With the dry/sunny spell we've been having in Portland this past week, there's lots of bright light in the house that we're not used to -- perfect time to use spot metering!
Just change to spot metering mode (I'm usually in matrix), point at the bright spot, press and hold AE-L and compose and take your shot.
This is also fun for the opposite effect, for example when shooting a person in a bright room. Spot meter on their face, and everything else gets washed out. Super cool.
Anyway, this is probably a tad on the saturated side, but I don't care.  :3

I'm not sure which of these I like better, so I'm posting both.  :-)

Taken last week in California, in a secret spot called Sasquatch Meadow.

Thanks +Michael Hatten, I like the contrast in that one too.... They definitely appeal to different parts of my brain.  :-)

Finding Infinity

I just returned from a lovely trip to California with my wife and daughter. One night, we camped under some redwoods in Mendocino County (somewhere between Willits and Fort Bragg), and were treated to a beautiful sky. Shooting stars too!

This was my first try at non-LE night photography. I was using an old cheapo 18-55 kit lens. It's autofocus with no focus guides, and infinity is not all the way to one end of the focus ring, but rather just shy of that. In the dark, autofocus doesn't work, and getting exact focus is especially important when your aperture is all the way open (which you need to get the Milky Way). So... Live View to the rescue!  (though, even with that, it was hard to find a good star to focus on!)  Any tips from seasoned star shooters?

vitals:
D7000, 18-55 lens (@18mm)

Tree of Life

This sculpture by Clark Wiegman, sits beautifully in Victor Steinbrueck Park in Seattle (right next to the Pike Place Market), and was donated to the Homeless Remembrance Project. 
"Blown by winds of change, a lone iconic tree bends while rooted to the earth. Metaphorically, this image represents both the difficult challenges and the encouraging possibilities of real change."

I took this photo this past weekend, on a trip I took with my wife (and daughter!) to celebrate our 11th(!) wedding anniversary.
