A Blood Red Moon

Starting at 05:30 this morning, the last total lunar eclipse until 2014 took place. It was clear and cold, but I got out of bed and shot the various stages. Unfortunately, the moon dropped behind some low cloud cover shortly after the full eclipse.

A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth slips between the sun and the moon, casting a long shadow on the lunar surface and darkening it. But sunlight filters in through the edges of the Earth’s atmosphere, casting a reddish-orange glow on the moon.

Winter, 2011 Performance

The studio has grown by leaps and bounds. It's now to the point where we need to schedule small groups at different times to accommodate everyone. Lots of new faces this time around and they all did fantastic. I mixed, filmed and recorded the show and Terrie shot the photos.

CSU Faculty - On Strike!

CARSON, CA (November 17, 2011) - The California Faculty Association (CFA) participated in a one day strike protesting for fair wages and quality education for students on the campus of Cal State Dominguez Hills.

"Treating faculty fairly does not require fee hikes for students, but it DOES require the Chancellor to change his priorities." Enough is Enough!

The event drew lots of media attention

Morning Glory

Fall is finally here. The other morning I was up early and it was a cool 52 degrees. Just before 06:00, I was witness to this beautiful sunrise. The color only lasted about 10 minutes. I could have easily been doing something else and missed it. Timing is everything...

Friday Night Hoops

 It's that time again. This was my first hoops outing for the 2011-12 season. Cal State Fullerton hosted Cal State Los Angeles in pre-season action. Although CSULA is a D2 school, they hung in pretty tough for the first half. In the second half, CSUF pulled away and cruised to a 71-56 final.

For me, it was amateur hour most of the evening. I had equipment problems with my remote camera, remote trigger and in the end, shot my main camera with +2/3 exposure compensation all night. This setting was in the camera from the previous weekend's soccer match. Anyway, here's a few action shots from the night.

Halloween Images

The images below are all taken with the iPhone 4S. The new camera is pretty amazing in low light. Most are shot in almost complete darkness, except for a strobe light or two.

Miller Construction Update

These are from the early stages of framing. I haven't been there for a couple of weeks now, so these are a bit outdated already. Will post more progress soon. All taken with the iPhone...

Titan Soccer

Where else can you shoot soccer in late October in shorts and 80 degree weather? Got out with Bryan Crowe and Matt Brown yesterday afternoon for some women's D1 soccer. The Titans easily handled UC Davis with a 4-1 win.
