March 31, 2014

In my head I remember watching the Merv Griffin Show as a kid and seeing this image at the end of his show, with the announcer saying “Guests of the Merv Griffin Show stay at the Beverly Hills Hilton”. I could be remembering this wrong, I know Merv owned this place, the street that leads to the door is named after him, but with a few Google searches I can not verify the memory. Either way, I am staying here for the week. I had lunch here today and I believe the actress who plays CeeCee on New Girl was sitting a few tables over, then they were shooting scenes for the Ray Donovan show on Showtime. Best part… it is 30 degrees warmer than home. Here are some more from my walk around Beverly Hills.

Hulk… Smashshot
March 26, 2014

There were a few names for this one, Hulk Say Cheese, Hulk Hate DC, Hulk Take Photo… he is smashing the shutter button under his foot, that’s what drove the idea. Then it became more about Batman brooding in the back. I know Hulk would not be in the same universe as the rest of these heroes, so save your geek notes, I work with what I got. If you are interested that is a 110 Pentax camera with changeable lenses from the 70’s.  One of my favorites from my collection.

Combustion
March 25, 2014

For the right cause I can procrastinate with the best of them. My camera tends to be the devil on my shoulder. “Instead of doing <whatever it is I am avoiding> why not shoot a photo?” It says. “Just a simple one, quick one, for the daily.” I have stuff to do, I will find a shot later, but no, it keeps calling. It becomes the Thelma to my Louise and next thing I know I have the junk draw emptied on to the kitchen table looking for matches, 2 tripods set up in the dinning room and huge glass plate under one to catch burnt match heads.  I have turned off not only the lights in the room I am in, but any adjacent room, no matter if the kids are doing homework in them or not. Lighting matches, repeating the process, an hour goes by, 200 high-speed shots are taken and we have driven that Ford Thunderbird  into the air while whatever it was I had to do sits back on the cliff.

I have passed this scene hundreds of times, until now I have never stopped. I did not even consider it as something to photograph, that was until I had no idea what to shoot today. Bonus points for you local folks… any guesses where it is? I bet you have passed it too.

Played around with some lights tonight, it led to me trying something I had not done before: freelensing. The process of holding the lens in front of the camera instead of mounting it to the body. Makes a cool effect, I will try it again with different subjects. There are some more below and a few with the lens attached. Anna patiently let me line her up for a cool shot too.
