I have included all of the software/hardware and different cameras, lenses, and tools that I use for photography in the About Me section. It also includes some awesome websites that will help you find great places to shoot.

Currently I am putting together a set of 50 great photography destinations in the Pacific Northwest. All locations are geo-tagged, so you can check them out yourself-----> PACNW Top 50

The Shot

This shot was taken on one of the many overpasses that run East/West over interstate I-5 near Seattle. There are multiple different locations you can get a shot similar to this, but I prefer this one the best. Check out the geo-tagged info if you would like to shoot from this location:)

 

TIPS: Color Calibration

Well I finally folded. I bought a color calibration tool for my computer. After some research I went with the Spyder4Elite from DataColor. You just download the software plug in the hardware and it sets up your computer's color calibration for you. I noticed a slight change in colors, but now post processing looks way better. For someone like me who is OCD about things being done correctly, I got the chance to itch a scratch that had been bothering me for a while. If you are going to print/sell any of your pictures color calibration is a must. I would highly recommend this product, even tho there are some pricier versions out there I think this one did a great job.

 

Anyone else have other software/hardware that they have had a good or bad experience with?

 

 

Enjoy….

  • Liz KB 3y

    Fantastic, I just go my D800, like it so far. I need to study your works so I can improve on mine.
  • RyanManuel PRO 3y

    Great work! I like the capture of the express lanes.
  • forurglory PRO 3y

    Great long exposure Dave. Excellent stripes.

    such an amazing exposure and the colour-correction serves you well. Nicely done!
  • nuframe PRO 3y

    Fantastic exposure Dave ! The colour really enhances it too !
  • Dean Forbes PRO 3y

    Is this the Lakeview overpass? I drive over it daily and have taken photos from it but have not seen this perspective. I work just below at the Hutch.
  • Heidar Eliasson 3y

    Excellent shot !
    Beautiful colors !
  • Philipp Hilpert PRO 3y

    great shot! d800 is a beast :D

    Ps: i found that the 14-24 is incredible sharp at f 5.6 are you experiencing the same?
  • Dave Morrow 3y

    Dean Forbes yep you got it man! fun place to take pics!

    Philipp Hilpert super duper sharp!

    Jason Teale thx man! forurglory :)
  • Dave Morrow 3y

    Darren Neupert I would say that would do the trick as well. I noticed a big change, my screen had a blue tint before.
  • Dave Morrow 3y

    Justin Brown Yep loaded with pixels. Thankfully hard drive space is cheap, along with RAM.
  • Mark Littlejohn PRO 3y

    Like the vibrancy. Sheer scale and size of these files is mind boggling. I am very tempted by the 800 at the moment but it means a full change of system. MIht be worth it though.
  • David Shield 3y

    Too cool, Dave! Very well seen and captured brilliantly!
  • Danielle Kiemel PRO 3y

    This is incredible!
  • Tan Yilmaz PRO 3y

    Awesome capture.
  • Freeman Mester PRO 3y

    Nice streaks here, my shot in the Pioneer Tunnel was with the 14mm Rokinon lens from Korea, I got it brand new for $399. I just love the small size and ease of primes. Great stream, thanks for noticing my shot :-)
  • Hai Nguyen 3y

    One of my favorite places to shoot in Seattle! Always the freeway streaks and activity. The HDR processing is nice bring out the cool colors balance. Congrats on your D800 too.
  • Om PRO 3y

    That is an incredible shot...great light trails..and it's very bright so I guess you atleast used ND8 filter or something. Terrific details on the Nikon 800 as well.
