If you haven’t checked it out already, I posted a new vlog on my youtube channel last week! Just a few clips of our trip to San Diego plus I added some of footage I captured from the drone. I’m having so much fun flying now and becoming a lot more comfortable with it. Over the weekend I flew a little bit with my cousin, Brian and he taught me how to take off and land from my hand! SOOO COOL! So if you haven’t checked out the video yet, click here to watch our trip to San Diego. Let me know what you think in the comments.

This image was taken on one of the many foggy mornings we had in SoCal. I will admit it was a little difficult to find compositions at times with all the fog and not being able to see too far ahead, but I love the way this one turned out. I think my favorite part is seeing the bird’s reflections in the sand. It’s so simple but I just can’t stop looking at it. The lines in the sand really help draw you in as well. I don’t know about you, but I always associate southern California with sunshine so it was interesting to see the other side of it. However next time I go, I would like some sun. This is the second time in the row when there was a whole bunch of fog. You’d think I was in San Francisco or something!

The settings for this image is F18 at 0.6 seconds with ISO 125 on my Sony A7II and 16-35mm lens.

PS I heard we’re expecting some snow this week in Washington, DC. plus the super moon! I’m really looking forward to going out and shooting this week. Good times ahead!

A couple of years ago, my friend Kelly and I went on a trip to the Pacific Northwest, more specifically Seattle area and Vancouver. It was my first time visiting Seattle so I was super excited to visit. We were there mostly for the tulip festival but also to check out the sites. Obviously we went to Pike Place, the little park area around the Space Needle, Kerry Park, the usual stuff you do in Seattle. And y’all know that whenever I travel anywhere, I always try to make a vlog. This trip was no exception. I had a blast and wanted to share that with you but also remember it for myself in the future. So here’s the video in case you missed it.

Well something super awesome happened. The Weather Channel contacted me and asked if they could use some of that video footage for their BRB video on the Seattle gum wall. How cool is that? As soon as they mentioned BRB, I knew right way the videos they were talking about. I’ve watched so many of those 30 second videos on Facebook on places that I’ve been to or want to travel to. I was honored that they even contacted me. The crazy part was that they used the part of me blowing the bubble gum bubble! I thought they were just going to use the footage of the gum wall itself. I was so surprised when I saw my big face on the screen. LOL. So cool.

If you ask me. The best part of the whole thing is the caption that they put under me. LOL. Anyways, I was super excited to be a part of it. The most surprising part was that they got it all done so fast. It took them less than a day to do. Or at least from the point they contacted me.
