I haven’t been doing a ton of pictures, but I started up again a little in June. I’ve been posting some of them directly to Instagram. Here’s a couple sets.
Water Lantern Festival Aliso Viejo – June 24
None of the lanterns pictured here are mine. Mine didn’t end up looking that good haha.
Mojave Desert – July 26
A friend and I went out to try to take pictures of the Milky Way. I tried playing with long exposures and time-lapses. I learned the cameras can have a bit of trouble shooting continuously in warm areas. For my a7riii in particular, this manifested itself as solid red, blue, and green dots. I got a suggestion for helping deal with that noise, but I haven’t tried anything out yet. I think it may also cause temperature changes between shots even at the same settings.
If you go all the way to the last slide, here’s the time-lapse on my Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/B0uPgL0AiUW/
San Diego – August 10
Went to try to take pictures of the sunset. But a huge cloud wall got in the way. 😅
