270 Photos - Aug 26, 2011
Photo: --Bunny Watch--

This year there are 60,000 people here, which means 60,000 different costumes (at least, many people bring 2 or 3!) all week long.  This was taken right before the Bunny March against Humanity, were at least 2,000 people showed up in bunny costumes and hopped about a mile across the desert together.Photo: Know this Russian Photographer?

At Burning Man, you just end up taking photos of hundreds of random people and you can't remember them all... she was Russian, and that's just about all I remember. She made the costume herself... I think I recall that she made the horns out of bedsheets and glue. This reminds me to never underestimate a Russian woman.

As for the details of the photo, this was ISO 1600, 14mm, 1.3 EV, f/3.5, and shutter at 1/400th of a second. I took this with an Olympus PEN camera.... it was my favorite camera in the desert... I used it so that my other Nikons would not get destroyed by the desert sand.

#SICInDatabasePhoto: The alienthing creeps across the burning desert

It uber-creepy and always deep in character.  Its four-legged gait across the playa looked so inhuman.  At one point, it was offered some water and the scene was beyond belief.  It leaned over with its elongated mouth-hose to suck up the water, its head reeling back, and a mechanical-breathing sound could be heard like chainmail being ripped apart.   #BurningManPhoto: The Temple Burns after the Man

On the final night, a huge fire engulfed the temple and it burned away into the darkness...   #BurningMan 

(and err... yes, I know that is a woman...  above I was referring the the Burning Man at Burning Man, which burned the day before...)Photo: They Flock to Her

She was from Belgium, she told me.  I got her playa name, but I'm not sure about her real name... everyone out here has a special name, like an avatar in a game.  #BurningManPhoto: Truth is Beauty - Good news - free Lightroom Presets Bonus!

I have great news!  I've just sent to the team an upgraded bonus set of Lightroom Presets that will go out free to everyone who bought the latest version at http://store.stuckincustoms.com/tools .  There are 10 new bonus presets, all of which I started using and tweaked from this year's Burning Man, including the one from this photo below.  I've also updated one of the HDR-in-Lightroom Lightroom Presets so it will be even better for you as well too.  I do this as a big thank you!

The upgraded presets will go into the store as soon as the team can get it in there... and I'll let you know here.  You can simply log into the store account and download the new preset package as soon as it becomes available.  If there are any questions, just let +Luke Lakatosh  know - thanks and enjoy! :)Photo: The Music Before they Burned the Church

Here's a photo from the Burning Man photowalk - thanks again everyone for coming out!  It was so fun!! :)  I'm looking forward to seeing all the photos as people begin to upload them.

This inventive church has hymn sheets that fly out of the organ.  When people sit down to play, all the sheets light up in different colors and flow out of the church through the windows and the roof.  It is a really amazing piece of art.  It's called the "Church Trap" because right behind me is a big stick that is holding up one end of the church...  Last night they burned the whole thing down while we sat around the outside to watch...  #BurningManPhoto: The Bridge

The Main Temple at Burning Man was big enough to have several bridges and walkways around the structure. One evening after taking sunset photos, I took my camera up here to get a few vantage points.


BTW, one of the most common questions I get is "How do you protect your cameras from the dust?" Most of the time, I just use a little micro 4/3rds (hate that name) that I don't mind destroying in the sand... a little Olympus PEN number. But, I also carry my D3X and D3S in a crappy backpack I got at Staples on the way... and I only take them out in good conditions like this for a big shot before putting them back away.

#SICInDatabasePhoto: The Lady Dances

Here is one of my favorite new pieces of art from Burning Man this year - this sculpture is called "Truth is Beauty" -- wonderful...Photo: The Umbrella Harlequin

I saw this girl while I was riding back from the temple at Burning Man.   She was walking so peacefully at a gentle gait with her umbrella...    #BurningManPhoto: Dragon in the Afternoon Sun

The desert is covered with all sorts of exotic cars and wild creations. They roam the desert and play different kinds of music. Bikes like mine stay with them like remora on a shark.

I ride for miles and miles across the desert and there is always something new and strange to see...

and thanks for joining my live Google+ hangout from the desert. +Dave Veffer made a new friend... that free-love hula hoop gal would like your email address... so, man, let me know...

#SICInDatabasePhoto: The Dock in the Desert 

So I just got done sitting in Burning Man traffic for most of the day with +Tom Anderson . They "pulse" the traffic out, so you basically put the car in park for an hour at a time. It gave us even more time after a nice Burning Man to talk in the RV. Like last time, the conversation involved everything from art to philosophy to music to economics to the internet. (Did you know he's a singer that used to have a band? It gave me a chance to ask him all sorts of strange musical questions... among other things...)

Anyway, a few days ago we were biking along the desert and came to this dock. I had taken the photo on a preceding evening and I had already showed it to him... as we rode around it, he tried to figure out where I took the shot... We came back to this spot in the daytime and he was having trouble picturing it... lamenting that he did not think it possible to get this same shot. I told him of course he could... and we spent a long time going to and fro across the desert with our cameras, capturing different things...

...so, to me, the big question is, which photo will we soon see from Tom and his new Nikon? _(he would post his photos anyway... just building a bit of social peer excitement for the grand unveiling of his first photo... very exciting to engage in a new artform, yes? yes...)

#SICInDatabasePhoto: The Grey emerges onto the desert playa... just another day at Burning Man... I have all the hi-res photos btw at http://stuckincustoms.smugmug.com/Burning-Man-Page  #BurningMan

This is the amazing son of the amazing +Cliff Baise who has some crazy-ass DNA.Photo: Angel in the Sun

One morning while visiting center camp at Burning Man, I saw this delicate angel on stilts gliding around the outside in the morning sun...Photo: A traveler rests in front of a massive art structure. The art piece in the back has a hollow trunk that allows people to climb up to the spherical cage on top. - from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: Firedancing at the Temple

Spotted on the periphery of the Bunny March at Burning Man...  #BurningManPhoto: The Mob

I'm at this really fun camp... laid back people... fun-loving and whatnot... we did an "angry mob" where everyone grabbed torches (about 50 people) and we marched through the streets saying we were angry about nonsensical things... this gal was not part of our camp, but she had a bike and was swinging her torch wildly around her head while we made a scene...

#SICInDatabasePhoto: Home Where the Buffalo Roam

A house is pulled across the desert as people sit on the porch to drink iced tea and various other beverages...

BTW, about to start up a fun Burning Man photo trivia contest here at http://www.StuckInCustoms.com -- have to get on a plane now but will get it going ASAP :)Photo: Dancing in the Storm

I was riding across the desert with my friend +Cliff Baise while we were looking for the cat parade.  We never found it. You know cats.  But, when riding along 6 o-clock, we saw this woman gently walking alone while enjoying the sun and the wind.  We stopped and asked if we could take her photo because she was interesting. She said, "Me, interesting? I don't think so... I've never modeled or anything."Photo: Art in the Desert at Night

notice: Big public Hangout on Google+ on Sunday (also broadcast live) with +Thomas Hawk +Gordon Laing +Jeremy Cowart and more! Join us at 5 PM ET!

Who would have thought that thousands of artists can come together in the desert every summer to unleash their creations on the world? This is yet another reason to sleep during the hot day… so you can go out and spend most of the night walking around and explore these sorts of beauties.

You may remember this sculpture from last year… But now it's sunk into the desert, in a way, and parts of the statue have fallen away to ruin… here is my photo of it from last year in my Burning Man gallery: http://bit.ly/pWlc9t . In fact, this was the same image that +Tom Anderson posted right before he came out to join me for an amazing time.

#SICInDatabasePhoto: Spinning Fire at Burning Man

I stopped along the playa when I saw this guy spinning steel wool by himself… It seemed like a waste for someone to do something so awesome without anyone taking photos of it!Photo: This is the underside of the wild alien spaceship that held the man that burned at the end of the week... I've never seen a bigger fire in my life!

As people would tour the alien spaceship, the only way out was the slide.  You should have seen people's reactions when +Cliff Baise's son slid out dressed as an alien!   #BurningManPhoto: Here is an awesome woman that was full of 1000 poses in Center Camp…Photo: Guess the Burning Man Camera Trivia Contest - Photo #6

...from my article with the theme that "The Camera Does Not Matter So Much..."

A – The Olympus Tough TG-1 – $369
B – The Pentax Optio WG-2 – $299
C – The Pentax K-01 – $546

E – The Nikon D3S – $4499 (note that I kept my Nikon D800 in the trailer the whole time and never used it… )
F – The Phase One – Over $10,000

Caption for photo below:  There are over a hundred art-cars that roam the desert during the day and night. You can get on any one at any time and it will pick you up at a random place and drop you off at another. This little gypsy car was one of my favorites, and the music that flowed out of it was eclectic and relaxing.Photo: Girl with Umbrella

The sun is quite intense... there are hundreds of varieties of umbrellas, and they all look good in the sun... With 50,000 unique people here, this is what we call a "target-rich" environment! :)

#SICInDatabasePhoto: I just turned on Subscribe on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/treyratcliff 

Question: Should I go through the trouble of replicating albums over there? I'm really enjoying albums and photos on Google+. I'm just adding to the Burning Man album below here... but it's hard for me to imagine doing it over on Facebook too. OMG digital drama. I need some chocolate.

#SICInDatabasePhoto: Muse at the Temple Sunrise  +Eden Muse, that is.

Note:  Live Hangout Tonight - Trey's Variety Hour #51 - just got word that +Tom Anderson tonight for the Burning Manesque show! :)  Event details at https://plus.google.com/events/cfsjmk0gjttbkpjfs0o5155be3g 

So, one might think I took a model over for sunrise photos at the Temple during Burning Man, but I did not!  She was just there, looking modelesque in the rising sun...  There are So Many awesome-and-interesting-looking people at Burning Man... I never get used to it.  Anyway, she looked cool and I asked if I could take a photo of her in front of the temple...  she said yes, and started posing... then halfway through, she said she was a model.  She asked me to send the pics along, which of course I will... she said just to Google her:  "Eden Muse"  (or G+ her at +Eden Muse  - not to be confused in any way with +Eden Brackstone )Photo: People spend all year building elaborate land-vehicles that cruise around the playa day and night. This one is particularly awesome, with a fully articulated head that can breathe fire at night (pics of that coming soon!). - from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: Sunken Ghost Ship in the Desert

I'm finally back to internet civilization after Burning Man!  I'll begin sharing photos...

I decided to upload this one first because it is related to one of my favorite photos from last year - you may remember "The Dock" at https://plus.google.com/photos/105237212888595777019/albums/5645256805077157953/5649058623214819538 

This year, they added to the end of the dock - a sunken Spanish Galleon, which has all the little authentic touches that I've come to expect from this crew.  See all the rigging?  It was even done by the woman who did all the rigging for The Black Pearl for Pirates of the Caribbean.

While I set up for this photo, a woman in a dress with lights inside came by with her well-dressed man.  They stopped to look out across the desert while I took this photo....Photo: The Black Bunny


While walking around the bunny flash mob, I found this guy working the crowd. I have no idea what he is all about, but something was very cool about it.

#SICInDatabasePhoto: On one of my first mornings, I walked away from my camp towards the middle of the playa. This gypsy was dancing around in the sun and having fun... I smiled and squatted down low to grab a photo. 

BTW This is taken with a single RAW file from an Olympus PEN camera.

from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: The Alien Crashsite in the Desert

We're not far from Area 51 here at Burning Man in Nevada.  My good friend +Cliff Baise decided to dress up his 12-year-old son Seth as an alien then came up with the idea to go out to this alien crash site sculpture on the night it burned.  We went out there with everyone and my own son, +Ethan Ratcliff helped him ham it up by doing a human-alien-communication scene. Needless to say, this really tripped out all the people that were already on acid.

#BurningManPhoto: Desert iPhone Gypsy

I was headed out for the sunset, traveling about two miles across the desert to a certain structure, and this gypsy was dancing through the sands. I was with +Cliff Baise , and we stopped to take photos of her serpentine gesticulations. She was so enamored with the attention that she asked Cliff and I for our websites. While she pulled out her iPhone from some mysterious gypsy-pocket to type in the information, I grabbed this quick shot.

from Trey Ratcliff at http://www.StuckInCustoms.comPhoto: Most people roamed the desert wearing goggles to protect ourselves from the sand and sun. For me, everything had an orange tint, so I've used the same technique in many of my photos of the event. - from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: Morning at the Temple at Burning Man 

Getting a few minutes of internet per week is tough! But, it does leave me more than ample time to go out and take photos… It is a great week. The night are cool (quite cold after a bit)… the mornings are cool too, and you need a sweatshirt or fabulous playa fur coat to feel comfy. I use the former, but am surrounded by the latter.



- Trey RatcliffPhoto: Steampunk at Burning Man 

Everyone at Burning Man is in costume all the time. That's about 50,000 people at a week-long costume party that becomes pretty intense. On the night of the actual burn of the tower (which you can see in the background), there was a little gathering of steampunk players toward the inner ring. One of the girls saw me taking photos, and came over to compare goggles for a bit. I grabbed this one of her just before it was time to return to her party.

I have photos of that too, but I ended up liking the skull alone, best. Bejeweled skulls don't need Indian dancers to make them more awesome! - from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: Every evening, a group of lamplighters walk through Black Rock City, hanging lanterns atop tall poles to keep the pathways lit for other travelers. - from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: Groups set up special camps with different themes. Here I am inside the "Black Lodge" from Twin Peaks (I'm a fan). It was modeled after the Red Room. I sat in it for many hours, listening to music and looking out this opening. This is one of the many photos I captured. - from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: Fixing Her Bandana

This girl was performing some yoga in the nude towards the center of camp. Even though she would not have minded a full-body shot, I didn't do that... I thought this angle was more interesting in many different ways, even though the other way certainly had some bullet-points going for it.

I know many photographers often are scared to take photos of people, and, if that is the case, the Burning Man is a great place to practice. It's not that the people there are outright exhibitionists -- it's just that they don't mind in most cases. And, if they mind, you just delete the photo... that only happened 0.2% of the time, though...

I usually like to take photos first, before people notice me, and then I go show them the photo afterwards, and we share a nice little moment. I think out of 2000 photos, I only had 3 people ask me to delete them... and that was mostly because they were school teachers or something where they could not let this side of themselves be exposed, so to speak...

#SICInDatabasePhoto: YES

And yes, Burning Man has no shortage of beautiful women (speaking of that, Adam Lambert was there too, but I did not get to meet him) galavanting across the playa.

I don't take pictures of naked women and stuff. It's just too easy.... I think maybe I've done 2 or 3, but only if it is part of the scene... like interesting yoga across a strange sculpture or something that feels right. I guess it's hard to explain in a way... but, shots like this are plenty fun :)

#SICInDatabasePhoto: Circling Center-Camp

I visited Center Camp almost every day with my camera. It's a large shaded area that holds thousands of interesting people. This area definitely has more of a "hippy" vibe that other parts of Burning Man, but that also means there are all sorts of interesting photos to be made.

#SICInDatabasePhoto: Believe... another sight from the desert last week...

I'm happy to just have landed in Brisbane btw and made the long drive to the Gold Coast... wow it is so pretty here - it is my first time! :)Photo: Sculpture at Burning Man

Or, maybe if people are shy, they get over it pretty quick. After a few days, everyone is very relaxed and everything seems okay and natural. - from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: Motoring Across

People spend all year building crazy bikes and vehicles so they can roll around the desert in style.  This guy had this amazing creation... he would cruise around the desert, leaning this way and that... I didn't get to meet him, but I had a feeling he was probably a cool dude.Photo: Daily Photo(s): One Week Till Burning Man!

Everyone on the playa is in costume. And, if you're not in costume, then you're the one that is standing out. This is one of the only Japanese people I saw there... but she certainly seemed really into the scene!

The night before they burn the Burning Man itself, they have something called a "regional burn", where many smaller structures are burned down. This amazing structure, a snake eating its own tail, is where +Cliff Baise and I ended up.

And only after doing it did we find out it was made by some Austin artists!

So things got burning, and Cliff and I were sitting down taking photos. Then, once things really started going, our faces started burning so much that we had to retreat! So we scrambled up with 500 different people and started running away! It was so crazy!

As we ran, we could still feel the heat pounding out our back. And it hurt like you don't know... there was a mild amount of panic in our escape! I'm sure Cliff and I will never forget it.

#SICInDatabasePhoto: from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: Burning Man is also a week-long costume party. In fact, if you are NOT in a costume, then you are the odd one out. We had a little PhotoWalk while I was there, and these characters came galloping through the middle of it. - from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: *The Desert Portal*

Here is one of over 200 crazy artcars here that roam the desert day and night. Each one plays a different kind of music, and you can get on at any time in a random location before then dropping you off in another random location, where you can wait for another random car to pick you up.Photo: Biking Across the Playa, Burning Man, Nevada

This is the same part of one of my favorite statues at Burning Man -- the same one from the night photo at https://plus.google.com/105237212888595777019/posts/4N75p1VrP57

This was taken with an 85mm prime just after the sun went down...

#SICInDatabasePhoto: In the middle of the city is a vast expanse of desert where anyone can set up art pieces. Here, a small booth offering advice was erected. I sat down for a moment and they said I was beyond help. from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: The Hooded Wanderer

So, if you look through my other Burning Man photos, you'll see I have a some steampunk goggles that have orange lenses.  Everything I see has a strange orange and grainy tint.  All I see are oranges and reds.  The reds pop like something out of the spectrum.  I spent a small eternity in Lightroom re-creating the effect.... so, in many ways, you are seeing exactly what I am seeing.

The esplanade is a street that is in the inner edge of the 50,000 inhabitants of Burning Man.  It's the most efficient ways of traveling from one place to another... and it's the best for people-watching, if you're into this sort of thing.Photo: Huge and fanciful cars trek back and forth across the playa. They always draw a crowd, and they add to the other-worldly nature of the scene... - from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: Burning Under the Sun

I don't go out much in the middle of the day... but on occasion I do venture out for photos. I prefer the cool sunsets, nights, and mornings. But under the sun in the Nevada desert, it is an intense experience.


This is not too far from center-camp. That distant "gear" is a huge human-powered hamster-wheel... photos of that coming soon...

#SICInDatabasePhoto: Center camp is a mecca for all kinds of artistic activities. Artists set up canvases, jugglers toss knives, and dancers gyrate around the court. It's really a feast for the eyes... and there was never a dull moment for my camera! - from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: There is a central area in the middle of the camp where people come to do yoga, get coffee, perform magic, or do other carnie-like activities. Some people just go and watch, like this gal here. - from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: Afternoon on the Esplanade

The heavy sun beats down on us all. Giant cars and moving pirate ships rove across the desert... after a while you just give in to it all... and stop thinking about getting a cool shower... (but then after a few hours, all you can think about is a cool shower... thank non-denominational-god that I have an RV and a giant bottle of shampoo.)

#SICInDatabasePhoto: The Desert is Burning

I'm deep in the playa right now... internet is hard to come by, but I found a few bits floating through to send you this image.  This amazing sculpture towers over the desert...  60,000 people are here this year and it towers over all of us.   #BurningManPhoto: *Balloon Chain"

This year Robert says he is going for a chain of balloons a mile long. Each of them has a little light inside, and they glow like a sinuous snake in the night sky. More from my fellow Texan at http://www.balloonchain.com/

#SICInDatabasePhoto: On the final night of the temple burn, a huge sandstorm blew across the desert, blinding all of us out in a dreamy haze. - from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: Babies at the Burn

There is an area called "Kidsville" that has 560 kids in a single Mad-Max-like camp.  Parents bring kids of all ages out there to join in the fun.

For something like this, of course I ask permission first... and mom was more than happy to allow me to take a few photos...   I did made this one with a 24mm prime at 1.4 btw.

See that little tag on her wrist?  That is so it's harder for her to get lost or run off and join some desert cycle gang.Photo: Daily Photo(s): One Week Till Burning Man!

Every night as the sun is setting, these lamplighters come out with lanterns and hang them high along the main roads in the make-shift city.

Here is one of the hundreds of giant art cars that stop at the docks to pick up new guests. Anyone can get on any art car... no invitations needed. When they stop, just hop on and roll around the desert. Each one has a different kind of music and a different kind of vibe...

#SICInDatabasePhoto: The Pink Party

I only know of this guy loosely through other friends... and I may get some details wrong, so please correct/forgive me. But, I can speak of it vaguely because I only know loosely of the myth, and so, in that way, maybe my observations are wrapped in a mystery of their own.

So there's this guy - I believe his name is Halcyon. He wears all pink and he's really into Burning Man. I mean really really really. He's known for having all kinds of crazy and awesome things happen around him. One day, I was in center camp, and hundreds of conga-lined people came dancing in, each wearing a different type of pink outfit. They took over the innermost area and had a quick party before having a massive hug-fest. It was very fun... I went around the outside and grabbed a bunch of individual photos, but this is the first one I grabbed. You may see more inside the Burning Man album.

Also, a question came up on my last post about these photos and rights. Here's what I said:

To +QT Luong and many others... here is the deal with photos at BM. Since it is a private event, they do own the rights to the photos. That's okay with me, since I'm just there to have fun, take photos, and get inspired. We have a healthy licensing business and don't need to sell these photos. Personally, I don't give much thought to whether or not I can make money off something -- if it is awesome, I go take a photo, and I worry about the business stuff later.

To me, this is a good exchange... a week of inspiration, great photos, great art, fun people, and no one is stopping me from posting the photos here and on the blog.In fact, since I did go through the trouble of getting a press pass the past few years, much of the press team at Burning Man know me. I get approval for the images I post, and I've never had a problem. They quite like me and the photos, since they know I'm a good steward of Burning Man. They also know I'm not trying to make money off them, sell books, sell images, etc etc... I'm there as part of the spirit of the place, if you know what I mean. Does all this make sense?

#SICInDatabasePhoto: With Umbrella

Another one of the thousands of interesting people milling around Burning Man.

After being here for a while, you kind of find it a bummer out in the "real" world that people don't dress up very often...

It's kind of like a massive MMO here, where people can become whatever avatar they choose, and everyone accepts it without judgment.

#SICInDatabasePhoto: Temple in White

Every year at Burning Man a new temple is built. People come to the temple and write little notes, secrets, regrets, or let things go in their own way. There is something about the idea of building these beautiful structures so that they can be burned down along with the things inside that is entirely unique and wonderful...

#SICInDatabasePhoto: Desert Traveler  A steampunk traveler travels across the desert to destinations unknown... We exchange nods... it's a strange sort of communication that goes on here... hard to explain.I think much of what happens here is impenetrable and mysterious to people that do not come. If you are reading this NOW, then you are probably NOT here. I used to be there... I ask people all the time what made them come the first time... and at some point, playful curiosity overcame the unknown and they just showed up.Photo: PlayaStorm

It was another blistering afternoon at Burning Man, and I took refuge in my RV.  I know it's not very sporting of me, but I prefer to be in the shade deep into Lightroom while the sun is most potent.  I got up to get a drink, and I peered out the window.  There was a very strange blue storm broiling on the distant horizon with those very rare mammatus clouds roiling across the playa.

So I jumped onto my bike and rode out into to find the distant temple.  The sun came out behind me and gave the desert and temple a golden glow while the sky beyond was livid with storm…Photo: The Night is Burning

On Saturday night, 60,000 people descended on the central tower to watch it burn down.  Everyone was in costume, even this gent in front of me that wore a haunting mask on the back of his head...Photo: Guess the Burning Man Camera Trivia Contest - Photo #1

(more on the contest at http://goo.gl/96uST )

I think this is the most exciting time to be a photographer, because it's becoming increasingly more about YOU, your personality, and the tools you use.  It's not so much about the camera that you happen to carry.  If you can capture something interesting and you love to post-process photos as much as me, then you can do anything you want.

While I was at Burning Man, I used SIX different cameras.  Everything from a small handheld Olympus to a giant, very expensive Phase One medium format camera.  Anyway, I thought it would be fun to do a little trivia contest to see if people can figure out which camera I used for which photo.  I'll post the photos here on G+, but also collecting everything over on the main blog at http://goo.gl/96uST .

Now, this will be kind of a hard trivia contest because I have post-processed all the photos... not exactly lab conditions!  But, it is real-life conditions, which makes it all the more interesting to me.  In the post-processing, I may have also added a bit of grain to some of the photos or various other techniques that might obscure the true origin of the photo.  I didn't do these things to trick you... I just did them because I think it made for a more interesting photo.

Anyway, below is Photo #1... so which camera did I use?  (I'll put up the correct answers after I post all the photos in the coming days...)

A – The Olympus Tough TG-1 – $369
B – The Pentax Optio WG-2 – $299
C – The Pentax K-01 – $546
D – The Sony NEX-7 – $1348
E – The Nikon D3S – $4499 (note that I kept my Nikon D800 in the trailer the whole time and never used it… )
F – The Phase One – Over $10,000

Caption for the photo below: While riding by on my bike, I saw these three dancers-al-fresco enjoying the sun. It seemed to be the sort of thing that was interesting and just begging for a photograph, and, well, you can see what happened. And no, none of this was posed… it just happened.Photo: *The Imperial Walker at Burning Man*  

What would you name this crawler?

This must be in my top five most-awesome-cars in the desert.  I guess it doesn't really classify as a "ca"r since these six legs crawl across the playa like an insect...

And here is the next photo.  Here's a hint… of the six photos I will share, each one came from a different camera I used at Burning Man.  Here are your choices:   A – The Olympus Tough TG-1 – $369 B – The Pentax Optio WG-2 – $299 C – The Pentax K-01 – $546 D – The Sony NEX-7 – $1348 E – The Nikon D3S – $4499 (note that I kept my Nikon D800 in the trailer the whole time and never used it… ) F – The Phase One – Over $10,000  Caption for this photo:  In the middle of the pink party, this girl was at center camp with pink ears and her dust cover. She was a very pretty bunny, so I gave her the international eyebrow-sign of “is it okay to take a photo?” and she lit up happily.    from Trey Ratcliff at http:Photo: Guess the Burning Man Camera Trivia Contest - Photo #3

Caption for this photo: On the night the man burned, 60,000 people crowded around the bonfire of mammoth proportions. Photographers did anything they could to see over the crowd, including this enterprising photographer-wizard.Photo: Full Contact Yoga

Center camp has 500 things going on all the time. There is a section where people engage in couples yoga that is like a 24-hour cirque-de-soliel. Here, an Australian duo performs a move that make me feel like a chubby blob that just stays on the internet too long. More about them at http://prometheanjesters.com.au

The ancient Egyptian god towered over the desert of Burning Man in the middle of an afternoon sandstorm.  I was riding my bike across the playa when the sandstorm hit.  The conditions were so bad I could not travel any more, and I had no shelter, so I just cowered down here and pulled out my camera to take pictures of what I could see...Photo: Did you miss the Burning Man Photo show?  Come Subscribe for Free by clicking subscribe at the top of http://www.youtube.com/stuckincustoms ! :)

What do you think of Ego?

btw, at the end of the week, they burned it down...Photo: The MMO of Burning Man

The first time I walked around the playa at night with +Tom Anderson  (be sure to see his Burning Man photos or hear him talk about them in our recent hangout on YouTube.com/stuckincustoms ), we talked about how it reminded us of an MMO at night.  Everyone is in costume and artifically lit... it's so surreal.  Even though I've been for three years in a row, I don't think I'll ever get used to it... always exciting! :)

This was taken with a Pentax K-01 -- as part of my six-camera experiment I mentioned on the blog at http://www.StuckInCustoms.com .Photo: Rituals in the Desert...

Every night in the desert is a new battle!  The dome is descended upon for the big event as a thousand bikes surround the structure and people crawl across it like insects, trying to get a view.   (taken with a Phase One)Photo: Windsurfing in the desert sun… another scene from the wide open playa at Burning Man….Photo: A massive steampunk octopus roams the desert while strange shapes float in the far distance...Photo: Stars in the desert… from above, I think they are Orion's Belt.Photo: A girl has fallen asleep on the couch at the Pink Heart camp...Photo: from Trey Ratcliff at www.stuckincustoms.comPhoto: Dad and Badass Baby at Burning Man

I captured this very unusual "thing" in the sky... what do you think it is?



Spoiler:  The answer is that it is a HUGE smoke ring that came from a giant controlled explosion on the ground at Burning Man.Photo: A Moveable Feast

I have to explain this one... it's too confusing otherwise I think!  There are about a thousand different art-cars that traverse the desert at night at Burning Man.  This one was a formal dining room table (attached to motorized knobby tires), complete with a chandelier and place settings for eight people.  The men were dressed in tuxedos and the women in fine dresses.  They ate on china and at least three forks while rolling around the desert, discussing various topics of science...Photo: The Bleached White Bones of a Mammoth...  crossing the desert in the deep afternoon.Photo: Strange beasts emerge from the desert mists...Photo: A sunny day above umbrellas and ships...Photo: Girl in the Desert Fires

If you click through, you can see a ton of shots from this crazy desert...Photo: The Desert Portal

Here is one of over 200 crazy artcars here that roam the desert day and night. Each one plays a different kind of music, and you can get on at any time in a random location before then dropping you off in another random location, where you can wait for another random car to pick you up.Photo: Dust Bunnies

Towards the end of the Bunny March, the loose alkaline sands of the desert picked up and started covering all of us while the party continued.  Not long after this, children showed up in Animal Control uniforms with huge nets to catch the bunnies... #BurningMan

I understand +Chris Messina and +Brynn Evans were in this parade... I have a ton more photos to post... I wonder if they are in there somewhere?!?!?! :)Photo: The huge wooden UFO structure held the man this year... It had so much wood... it was no wonder the fire went 100 feet into the air.Photo: The night is when things really go MMO in the desert; every building, structure, and vehicle you see during the daytime gets a fresh patina of reality.

I think people that go there can intuit what those swirls are on the bottom of the photo.  But in case it is a total mystery, this is a light on the wheel of a bike that is flashing as it is riding by...  #BurningManPhoto: Another new friend I made for the day in the desert...Photo: The Mir

Hanging inside one of the huge structures at Burning Man was this huge wooden replica of the Mir space station.  It was so intricate, and we all only got to see it for a few days before they burned it all away one night...Photo: A little bit of Venice in the Desert

This is one of the more awesome and intricate costumes I saw out there... so amazing how people just dress up and come out there to contribute to the overall feeling of the place.Photo: Having some fun before the bunny parade... :)Photo: The Amazing Floating Ichthyosaurus

This is one of the more strange and awesome artistic creations out in the desert this year.  People could come in and control the skeleton and move it around into different positions.  It reminds me of those wooden dinosaurs I used to build as a kid! #BurningMan   #IchthyosaurusPhoto: Married in the Desert...

Last week while walking through the desert, a wedding sprung spontaneously out of the playa!  Many of you know I've never taken photos of a wedding before, but it just so happened that our photowalk was going right by it.  We talked to the bride and groom right before it started and asked if it would be okay... now they have about 1,000 photos of their wedding thanks to the all the photowalkers! :)   #BurningManPhoto: Here's one of the thousands of interesting people who all assembled on the Black Rock Radio station before the big parade….Photo: Another scene near the temple...Photo: One night my friend Cliff and I went to go take photos of the Man, and we stopped on the way when we saw this other great structure...Photo: The Rolling Steampunk Machine

What? A three story Victorian House that is rolling around the desert?  Yes !  This is probably one of my favorite art cars on the playa.  The other amazing thing about it is that the entire crew is in costume and character the entire time... amazing!

More about the car here on their page:  http://www.obtainiumworks.net/neverwas-haul/Photo: Strangeness in the Desert

I'm back in the desert yet AGAIN!  Now I am in Arizona for Google Zeitgeist and it's over 100 degrees... again!  haha jeez... this is half the reason I left the heat of Texas to move to those cool mountain days on the south island of New Zealand, so I'll just chalk this up to bad planning!  Yeahno (a kiwi express that means yes but no), things are great here... last night I had a lot of fun with +Ron Garan +Daria Musk +RAM Rich +Bradley Horowitz and a ton of other people once we found the air-conditioned dessert room.

As for this crazy photo below, this is from LAST week here in the same desert area when something was a little amiss on the playa.   #BurningManPhoto: The Andromeda Babysitter

Haha my strangest title ever...  so this year when we went to Burning Man with +Cliff Baise and our families, Cliff also brought along his 18-year-old cousin Andromeda to babysit our 12-year-old boys while we went out to take photos.  She was great and loved Burning Man even though it was just her first time.Photo: The Fabulous Bathrooms of Black Rock City

They are fabulous!  Especially around 5 PM after a long hot day... -- I added a bunch of new photos today to the blog at http://www.stuckincustoms.com/2013/09/22/burning-man-2013/ ! :)Photo: And here is that same church I just posted as it is burning down…Photo: Here is one of the most beautiful of the art cars that roamed through the desert at night.  Underneath a thin sheet of plastic were thousands of LEDs, each programmed to follow an ever-changing pattern of flowing light and colors...Photo: This guy reminds me of all the super-friendly people I met in the desert.  I happened to get a shot of him right when a huge truck went behind him, decorated like a giant boom box.Photo: Here is a cool girl +Cliff Baise and I met in Center Camp.  She was with her boyfriend (I assumed) and we went over there to see if we could take her photo - he agreed enthusiastically because he already knew who I was -- that was lucky…  so he patted her on the shoulder and told her not to worry, that I would take a good photo :)Photo: Mystery Monkeys - Humouroboros by Peter Hudson

Here is one of the most intricate and complex art pieces I saw this year.  The way it works is mysterious, and people have to work together to figure it out!  So, we determined that multiple people have to get in close and play the drums in some kind of a special sequence.  Once they do this, the monkeys start to spin.  When they get spinning fast enough, strobes come on and you can see the monkeys swinging from vine to vine.  Awesome! #BurningManPhoto: The Crashed UFO Near Area 51
