Here are some pictures from various places in the Bay Area. Mostly I've been going around the area with my Sony a6000 and having fun. In October I went to the PSA Conference in Pittsburgh and made a few images there. And then I went to Trader Joe and shot some pumpkins, and have been working on them in Photoshop. With the pumpkins, and with several of the ones below in Dogpatch, I've been using a creative technique duplicating part of an image and then flipping the copy. At the beginning of December our club had a field trip to the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco and I did some shooting, including a two-person walk to an area near a very rusty building. And at the end of the month I practiced shooting glassware in a spare bedroom, In March I went to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk for the first time in my life, with my friends the Fields, and found a few fun shots.

In late May I went to the San Francisco Carnaval to practice shooting people using my 18-200 mm lens at 200 mm or so and at f/5.6 to blur the background.
