Yesterday was a fun experience, being able to see the @Xfinity Drone Race at the Golden 1 center in Sacramento. I was so surprised at how fast these things go! All the teams make their own drones and I was able to talk with them about their experiences and such. Very grateful to have been invited!

Hello beautiful people! This foreground shot was taken last summer on a backpacking trip in Yosemite. At the time I didn’t think much of it because of the immense beauty within the park, this ‘rock’ seemed insignificant. However looking back, it’s such a cool structure and I thought it would be fun to present to you all. Hope you enjoy!

This past weekend I went backpacking to shoot astro for the first time this year! I was skunked! The clouds rolled in right around 10 pm, however I have so many tracked milk shots I wasn’t too upset. However I woke up at 5 am for the sunrise, and got several foreground shots for composites. Thus I went back to a Milky Way pano I took in Yosemite last year.

One thing I love about the digital art and composites that i’ve gotten into, is that it’s a constant learning process. Developing new techniques, color palettes, and other editing methods. Thus, today and tomorrow i’m running a little experiment. This post is a collaboration with an amazing artist @justinwadeorton. BTW, he’s one of Instagrams underrated accounts, so please check him out and if you like give him a follow! •
This image was created over 6 months ago, and i’ve been meaning to re-edit it for a while. Thus tomorrow you’ll see a different side to this image. I’ll try to create a walkthrough for tomorrows post as well.

First just wanted to say thank you for all the amazing words of encouragement on yesterdays post. If you skipped the description, I recommend going back to read it.

Now about this shot. I’ve been trying to get something like this for a while, ever since seeing amazing images from @gettyphotography and @jbbevel.
I finally created something i’m happy with. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s still a composite. I shot the sunflower fields in Davis, and went up to Woodland to get this amazing and infamous oak tree, added together with a pretty sky.
Hope you enjoy!

Today I have a little message for people. Someone I greatly respect, @tara1393_, reminds me about social media. This isn’t real life. What you see on social media is simply what people want to show you. Most of the time, it’s their best sides.

This isn’t necessarily bad, because people often come, to Instagram at least, to find pleasure and joy in seeing art, nature, or being a part of a community. But remember, everyone has their struggles, some more than others.

I myself have been battling demons on a personal level, and although I don’t feel comfortable sharing all the detail publicly, just know that if you yourself are struggling, you are not alone. You don’t have to fight the battle by yourself. Have a blessed day everyone, and let’s work together to spread positivity!

What are your plans for the weekend?

Happy Saturday Fam! Here is a shot I did with @night_unleashed the other day. Of course I had to ‘adjust’ the image quite a bit, so keep an eye out for the speed edit coming soon!

Last night was so amazing! Clouds are rare this time of year in Davis, but as the sun was setting I saw some beautiful clouds begin to form. I knew I had to get out! I got several types of shots so i’ll be posting more in the future.

How did you spend your 4th of July?

I hope everyone had a good 4th of July! I finally made it out to Tower Bridge in Sacramento. Been wanting to shoot the fireworks there for a long time. Met up with the talented @night_unleashed, and had a blast (no pun intended!) Anyway, this is a composite of many shots I took, because obviously I couldn’t just have one firework! ahaha
