I see a lot of great photos on my Instagram feed. I decided to shout out a few of them. The first two are from Toby Gelston, I discovered him while looking up photography tutorials on YouTube. The last three are from fellow UIW alumni: Yesenia Caloca, Charlie Young, and William Timmerman. Got to represent fellow Cardinals!
I hope to make this a new weekly tradition. If I see your awesome photos on my Instagram feed, I’ll publish your work here and encourage others to follow you.
This Week’s Picks
I had to pick two Toby photos because he is a master photographer! My first pick is of Bridal Veil Falls. I really liked the earthy colors, green and brown. Really caught my attention.
Yosemite is full of epic views but don't miss the little details – just a short distance below Bridal Veil Falls this little stream plays hide and seek in the woods. Captured with the #Sony #a7RIII and Canon 24-70 using the @nisifiltersus Circular Polarizer filter and 6 stop ND filter. Swipe over to see this same shot with the Circular Polarizer Filter in the "off" or minimum position – huge difference? This is just one of the reasons I think a CPL filter should be in your bag – learn more and find the right filter size for your lens at http://photorec.tv/cpl
And of course, who wouldn’t stop and like this photo! The night sky in all its radiance. One day I hope to capture great photos like Toby.
We just wrapped a fantastic photography workshop in Yosemite, the last night spent under a beautiful clear sky. I love teaching star photography, especially when one of the students shows me a composition like this, I made sure to grab my own shot before the night was over. Want to learn to shoot the stars and the milky way with me? We are headed to Joshua Tree NP in June and I would LOVE to have you come along – more info at http://photorec.tv/jtstars Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and Canon 24-70 f/2.8 via #Sigma #MC11

This next photo is from UIW alumna Yesenia.
Her entire portfolio is spectacular! After liking several of her photos in my feed, noticing they were all by the same person, I decided to see what her profile looked like. Wow!
Definitely, check that out.
Which reminds me of two other highly skilled photographers who also went to UIW with me.
Charlie’s profile is also phenomenal! His minimalist style is something I will aspire to emulate in the future.
Be sure to follow Charlie, his work will blow you away!
This next photo is by William. I picked this photo, just because I love the color green!
He has absolutely mastered modeling photography, you’ll see a mix of models and landscapes throughout his profile.
