Today at #gnomon the students got a hot and heavy intro to shooting motion pictures and working with digital cinema cameras.


Uploading some b-roll 4K footage of the Newport Beach Waves from this week in about an hour.

Red Epic Dragon at Newport Beach catching those massive waves. Shot mostly with my abused and tortured Sigma 300mm f/2.8 prime occasionally with a doubler. Popped on the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS a couple times too. The PL glass got the day off.

Tuesday with #R3D Dragon. Prepping for two upcoming shoots. Waiting on the award for a spot (and boy do I want this gig). Firing off some test 6K footage for a post house. Bee lands on camera and stares into my soul for a few minutes. Nice day out.


Today at #gnomon we’ll be discussing high quality texture and reference acquisition. And we’ll talk about animals because they are cool too.


To those who can see this, have a good weekend. An old landscape from 2006. Nature does some lovely things occasionally throwing a nice palette right in your face.

"We must constantly look at things in a different way."

Panoramas on my mind lately. An old favorite from the abandoned USA Petroleum plant.

To my friends and family heading off to the burn. Be safe out there you dusty adorable wombats. I do miss the amazing scale of it all, but alas there’s work to be done.

Hole in shorts. Wear a patch of peeps you respect and miss :)
