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.

Fishing under a crescent sun by isotophoto
Fishing under a crescent sun
Was looking through some old photos and this one caught my eye. It was taken during a partial solar eclipse. I thought the clouds were going to completely block the view, but it seems that they were just transparent enough to let some of the sun through.

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.
