Waiting for the eclipse by isotophoto
Waiting for the eclipse
Pointed the camera the other direction while waiting for the recent eclipse. If only the eclipse was this spectacular! It was too cloudy here for a very clear view of the eclipse, but at least there was this :)

Eclipse and waiting for a gap in the clouds by isotophoto
Eclipse and waiting for a gap in the clouds
Conditions were less than ideal here for yesterday's eclipse, but I tried! There were thin clouds covering the moon most of the time, so the light was very dim, even for an eclipse.

Running into the clouds by isotophoto
Running into the clouds
Taken while in the middle of a trail run over the weekend, up and over a ≈2,000 ft mountain at Malubu Creek State Park in California. The pacific ocean would be visible just a little further down that path on a clear day.

I only had my phone with me, but since I always have it with me and the camera actually isn't half bad, I'm trying to learn to get the best out of it, at the scene and later in post-processing. Hope you like it :)

For a long time, I have resisted posting phone photos, but of course it's the camera that's around when I'm not going out specifically to take photos (which I sadly haven't been doing very often).

My recent phone photos are much better than most of my SLR-caputred photos from when I first started sharing here on DA, so why not share more of them? This was taken on a trail run in Simi Valley, CA.

Rocky Beach by isotophoto
Rocky Beach
Near Emma Wood state beach in Ventura, California :)
Hello DA people! I haven't been too active in photography recently. Just a little loss in motivation I guess, along with an already busy life. I also moved to a new area recently and it's not as easy to get to the beach or the park by my old house, so I'm exploring my new surroundings to find new "go-to" photography spots.

I try to make it out to various trails or parks for a run or hike 2-3 times a week, and I always have my phone camera with me, so I started getting more active on Instagram. You can view/follow if you care to: (it's still nature/landscape photos)

I think it's more important to practice photography basics than to have a bunch of 16-bit RAW images filling up my hard drive and put into an endless queue for editing (although I enjoy that too), even if that practice is just with my phone. I'm not a commercial/pro photographer anyway. When I do take my SLR out, it will only get better.

I posted something new today. Maybe I'll edit and post some older images for the time being. I'm sure I'll be back to posting new photos semi regularly, but I want to keep the quality here as high as I'm capable of, so I'll stay selective.

I'm a graphic designer who likes to play around outside with my camera. In summer 2011 I decided to take photography more seriously. I'm trying to learn everything I can, improve every time I shoot and share my best work here.

Most of my photos are taken somewhere around the LA or OC area in southern California.
