So beautiful out yesterday evening. The pictures below were my first ever attempt at capturing lighting with my DSLR (D500 + Tamron 28-75; f/2.8). It was not easy, I tried both a remote and the interval timer but some of the better displays happened in between shutter operation. But I managed to get a few that I thought were pretty amazing. Though after download I realized in my excitement to set up my camera, I did not clean the wide angle lens--I hadn't used it for a few years so I should have known. Oh well, learning experience. Hope you enjoy!

Ventura Surfing, July 11, 2021 https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2021/7/ventura-surfing-july-11-2021 Wow, what a beautiful morning for my 6-year-old and I to stumble across another nice set of waves and what looks to be the National Scholastic Surf Association (NASSA) surf competition here in Ventura, CA. Originally we were just going have our coffee (me) and oatmeal (him) at the beach but when we saw the surfers in the water and some really nice sets, I grabbed the trusty Nikon D500 and 200-500 f/5.6 lens. During most of the shots he was on my lap helping me focus and shoot and was having such a good time. If you see yourself in any of the images below, feel free to click on them to go to the full gallery and download a digital copy, use it for your own personal use (and don't forget to tell everyone where you got it if you post it on social media. :)) Thanks again, Ventura, for another wonderful surf photo sesh!

Backyard Macro https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2021/6/backyard-macro So a little break from the sports photography, more specifically, the surf photography. The other day I went out to the backyard in Ojai, CA to capture what I could find with my Nikon D500 with 200-500 f/5.6 lens. This combination turned out to be perfect for some macro shooting without getting too close to the insects and birds I was watching. I think they came out well. With the right light, this lens/camera combination is an amazing tool for making photos.

Ventura Surfing, May 20-2021 https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2021/5/ventura-surfing-may-20-2021 I got up in the early morning today to go out to shoot surfers and get more practice in on my autofocus and longer lens. It's really quite fast! I had seen on Surfline that the waves would be over 5 feet and the weather app stated a nice sunny morning in Ventura. And they were both right for once! I made my way down to the end of Surfer's Point near the "Stables,' but not quite to the effluent end of the Ventura River, and found a nice piece of driftwood to sit on. I decided to hand hold my Nikon D500 + 200-500mm F/5.6 to see how long my arms could hold up. It wasn't bad, the lens/camera combo is actually not that heavy. The below are some of the shots I got this morning. Waves, ocean, and light were amazing but there really were not that many surfers out. Perhaps they were waiting for later today when the surf is supposed to be a little large. All images shot between 400 and 800 ISO, 1/2500 @ F/5.6.

Beach Birds with a Nikon 200-500 f/5.6 https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2021/2/beach-birds-with-a-nikon-200-500-f/5-6 As of today I have shot with a Nikon 200-500 f/5.6 twice. Once last March at the Santa Ana Horse track attached to the incredible D5 and the other day at the beach attached to my fabulous D500. I have to say this lens, for a less expensive super zoom, is one of the best lenses I have ever shot with. The focus is fast, the color renders beautifully, and the sharpness, well tack like quality for lack of better terms. I can't wait to get it out there to shoot other sports and wildlife in the coming days. The below few images of random birds on the beach were taken while I was practicing with my autofocus on surfers. This lens is one great example of reasons why Nikon will always be my main choice of photography equipment.

Ventura Surfing, February 18, 2021 https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2021/2/ventura-surfing-february-18-2021 I was out near the Ventura fairgrounds yesterday afternoon to practice with my autofocus. Since the pandemic began I'm getting a little rusty with the sports photography due to a relative lack of sports out there. This time I shot at primarily 500mm on a DX sensor and really tried to lock on to each surfer as they dropped in or shredded the waves. My goal was tack sharp focus as much as possible. Back button focus helps tremendously in this area but it wasn't always a hit. Below are a few of my favorites from the day, but click on any photo to visit the full gallery.

I decided that I will start creating public galleries online so that the photos (good or bad) can be taken via screenshot by anyone that appears in the images (again, click on any image below to access that gallery). I figured folks might want their pictures rather than me just deleting or archiving them somewhere to never be seen again. But please only take the photo if you are in it and use it for posting on social media or whatever your own personal use it. If you want high-resolution images I am available for hire so please do contact me through the website.

Ventura Beach Near San Jon Road https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2021/1/ventura-beach-near-san-jon-road My first images of 2021. I brought my camera down to the beach with my son near San Jon road in Ventura, CA for some snap shots because I knew the waves would be fairly impressive. We also had fun climbing on the rocks, throwing sticks in the water, and playing in the surf--social distancing of course!

My Favorite 10 Images from 2020 https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/12/my-favorite-10-images-from-2020 Wow, 2020 was a rough year to say the very least. Lot's of adaptation happened (and still is). So thankful that I got to at least attend Sports Shooter Academy 17 before all hell broke loose last March. The below are what I have determined to be my favorite 10 images (outside of personal family photos of course!). I set out at the beginning of the year determined to put energy into my photography but with everything going on, I did what I could and am happy with my outcome. Here's to 2021 being a year to energize focus and get to the things important to us. Happy New Year Everyone!

Another Ventura Surf Shoot https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/12/another-ventura-surf-shoot Some images taken near the Stables in Ventura, CA on December 29th, 2020 in the evening. Something about the drama of the sunset, wind, and waves keeps me going back. That, and I love shooting action sports. I know very little about surfing but watching how they interact with the wave keeps my attention. I'm going to have to get a longer lens soon so i can really reach out and get up close and personal. A couple of other shots in here of of non-surfing, just some of the stuff i see when I out with my camera.

Random Shorebirds https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/12/random-shorebirds Some shots I took while photographing surfers over the last few days. I find the little pipers cute; the seagulls, not so much. LOL. All shot on a Nikon D500 and Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 lens (no VR).

Surf in Black and White https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/12/surf-in-black-and-white Got my coffee this morning and headed back out to the beach. No real action going on so I thought I would take a few shots to see what they might look like in Black and White.

Sunset Surfing in Ventura, CA on 12-20-2020 https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/12/sunset-surfing-in-ventura-ca-on-12-20-2020 It's fun to get out and shoot, even if it's just an excuse to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors (and masked up due to COVID-19 for safety). This collection of images is from Sunday's trek to the beach near the Ventura county fairgrounds. One day I'll invest in a longer lens to get closer to the action but for now my trusty 70-200 attached to my D500 will suffice.

More Surfing in Ventura, CA https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/12/more-surfing-in-ventura-ca Some surf photos near the "stables" in Ventura, CA on December 8, 2020. Shot with a Nikon D500 and Tamron 70-200 lens from the shore against the setting sun. The wind was moderate but the waves were fairly crazy, which made for some dramatic images.

Kite Surfing in Ventura, CA https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/11/kite-surfing-in-ventura-ca Here are a ton of photos I took on October 27th and November 10th, 2020, near Surfer's Point in Ventura, CA. The first day I shot RAW as I normally do and the second day I shot in JPEG to see if I could get good out of the camera edits. RAW or JPEG the images, in my opinion, required about the same amount of post processing to get them to look the way I wanted them to. I normally would not just dump this many images into a post but what else am I going to do with them, at least here someone, somewhere, may enjoy looking at them. This was not an assignment, just me getting away from the work at home and taking time to practice sports action photography while there is not much going on during this crazy pandemic. Hope you enjoy.

Timelapse of stars https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/8/timelapse-of-stars My first ever attempt at star timelapse. This is about 1200 images, give or take, of the sky over two separate nights. The first night I left my camera in the backyard over night only to come out to find out it had rained a bit. Luckily no harm done to my camera. :0

Remote Bird Photography https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/8/remote-bird-photography I set up my Nikon D500 with Tamron 70-200 near the fountain yesterday in 108 degree heat because the birds were flocking in for water. I also set my DB-700 speedlight on camera with my little SB-600 on a stand to the side. I framed the shot I wanted and then gave the remote trigger to my 5-year-old son and told him when a bird lands on the second cup, take a picture then count to 5 to make sure the flash recycled before taking another. The below are the best of what he captured.

Shot on a Nikon D500 with a Tamron 70-200 f/2.8. I played with the white balance a bit but in actuality when I shot it the moon was a bit warm due to the Apple Fire burning in southern California that day.

Comet NEOWISE stacked image https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/7/comet-neowise-stacked-image My fist ever attempt at stacking images to reduce the digital noise. The following images are stacks of 19, 12 and 10 images (respectfully) and rendered in Photoshop CC's panorama merge using the auto layout. Location of shot: Baldwin Road, Ojia, CA on July 18 (images 1 and 2), July 19 (image 3), 2020 at around 9 pm both nights.

And the next image is a single shot taken at ISO 1600 70-200@130mm f/2.8 5.00s (Nikon D500 + Tamron 70-200 non VR lens)

The first night I tried I didn't know anything about star trailing or much more than just setting the camera to a long exposure on a tripod. A little research and I began to understand the relationship between exposure time, focal length, and the speed of the stars in the field of view as the Earth rotates. This basically meant I sped up my shutter speed to around 1.6 seconds (depending on the focal length) from the 30 seconds I was setting the camera to the night before. The results were a stark contrast.

Honeybees with a D500 and extension tubes https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/6/honeybees-with-a-d500-and-extension-tubes I have been playing around with extension tubes and seeing just what my Nikon D500 is capable of. And what I am capable of for that matter. The below images were all taken with a D500, 50mm f/1.4 Nikon lens, and an extension tube. Settings posted with each image. The first 6 were done with natural light so I could see just how far I could push the ISO. The final 3 were done with a SB-700 speed-light off camera via TTL cord. The flash was diffused but the light still came out a bit harsh, probably because it was only about 16 inches away from each bee.

Black Lives Matter, Simi Valley, CA https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/6/black-lives-matter-simi-valley-ca Demonstrators march along Cochran St. in Simi Valley, Califorina, during protest of police brutality and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement on June 6, 2020 weeks after the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man killed while being detained by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota. These are a set of images I took from the car over the course of about 15 minutes as I passed through the protest route. I wish I could have had the time to cover it better but I came across this with my son thinking it was going to be much smaller. There were thousands of people attending and it was one of the most powerful things I have ever seen.

More Quarantine Backyard Macro shots https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/5/more-quarantine-backyard-macro-shots Hey, if we can't have sports might as well exploit the creatures in the yard, right? It's really good practice framing, focusing, and catching the moment when you are up so close. Becomes a whole body experience while getting the shot. I find I do a lot of deep breathing, not just so i can steady myself, but I find it helps in relaxing my mind to see what is happening in this smaller world. Again, all of these were taken with a Nikon D500, handheld, in ambient light, with an extension tube and my amazing 50mm f/1.4G lens. I tried to get more in flight today than I did yesterday while trying to be mindful of the backgrounds.

Macro images from around the yard https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/5/macro-images-from-around-the-yard Without sporting events and a number of other people-oriented gatherings to shoot, I dug out some handy dandy extension tubes I bought a number of years ago and thought what better way to spend some quarantine time than to go out into the yard with my 5-year-old son to shoot some macro? He's been intrigued by bugs so this seemed to be a great activity to get him up close to see these little critters in their environment. A least he would shout with excitement as we looked at each shot on the camera display. I was using a Nikon D500, manual focus, manual mode, handheld, at around 1/1250 @ f/11-13, and 1600 ISO. Attached to the body was a 36mm extension tube and my amazing Nikon 50mm F/1.4G. I did this without a strobe in full sun because I wanted to see how my new camera held up at the higher ISO. The last time I did any macro shots I was using my D300 and I could not get the f-stop small enough without a strobe to have a decent depth of field. I think this setting gave me just enough to get nearly an entire bee in sharp focus.

Men's Basketball at Cal Lutheran University https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2020/1/mens-basketball-at-cal-lutheran-university Took my son to watch his first basketball game last Saturday and to try getting some sports photography practice leading up to the Sports Shooter Academy in March where one sport we will be covering is basketball. The below images are what I managed from the stand of an afternoon basketball game between California Lutheran University and Occidental College on Saturday, January 11, 2020 in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Final score was 77 to 54 with Occidental College taking the win. All shots taken from the stands with Nikon D500 and Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 (no VR) at a higher ISO than I am used to shooting with. But I think this camera does fairly well under the terrible gym lights with the lens aperture wide open.

Cal Lutheran Football from September 2018 https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2019/6/cal-lutheran-football-from-september-2018 I thought I had posted these previously but it looks like I missed doing it. These were some photos I took out at Cal Lutheran University last September. I was driving by and saw a game happening so I decided to swing in and shoot for about 45 minutes. I hadn't shot football in years and now that I had a new camera, I thought, what the heck? I had already contacted the SI director for access to sporting events on campus so I just went up to the guys at the field gate and got a field pass. I'm not a big football fan but shooting football is so much fun.

More Random Images https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2019/6/more-random-images I was trying to access my external hard drive last night (it may be broken, ugh) to go through some sports photos to hopefully beef up my portfolio and get some action sports work. I came across these random shots in my computer in the frustrating process. Just some random images of things I pointed my camera at over the last year. Nothing spectacular but what better place than a blog to post your randoms. LOL. Enjoy! Hopefully I will be posted more sports images in the near future. :-)

Wildwood Park https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2019/5/wildwood-park The below are some images from an impromptu early morning hike with my son on April 22, 2019 in Wildwood Park, Thousand Oaks, CA. The Mustard seems to be taking over since the hill fire went through parts of the park. With the recent rains the botanical growth is insane.

Painted Lady https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2019/5/painted-lady Painted Lady Butterflies have been rolling through Southern California like crazy the last couple of days. Today the swarms seemed a little more intense than yesterday. The below photos taken hand held with Nikon D500 with a Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 (non VR version) @ 200mm for most of them on Friday, May 10, 2019, in Newbury Park, Calif.

Men's Baseball: Cal Lutheran vs Whittier College https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2019/5/mens-baseball-cal-lutheran-vs-whittier-college On Saturday, May 4th, 2019, I took my 4-year-old out to a baseball game (11 a.m. game) at Cal Lutheran at his request. We watched the batters, the pitchers, and the action in the in field for a bit before it got too hot and we needed to head home for some lunch. I had my DSLR with me so we found some places around the grand stands to get a few shots in. I have not shot baseball in about 14 years! Was fun sharing a sporting even with my son. Hope you enjoy these snapshots I took. Maybe next year I'll head out there and cover an entire game.

Sara and Keith Engagement, Ventura, CA https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2018/5/sara-and-keith-engagement-ventura-ca Last summer I had the privilege of making photographs of Sara and Keith for their engagement. I am so lucky they chose me as their photographer and can't wait to capture more images on their big day later this month. They were both fun and easy going; definitely in love; and filled with life, laughter, and playfulness. I thought it about time to share them on my blog to honor their connection with one another. Congratulations to both of you! I look forward to being a part of your wedding day!

Jennifer Rose Acupuncture in Westlake Village, CA https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2018/4/jennifer-rose-acupuncture Well, we just finished moving my wife's acupuncture office to Westlake Village (a little town in between Thousand Oaks, CA and Agoura Hills, CA). I am hoping maybe I can utilize office space there for editing photos? It's such a quiet and serene office.

Jennifer sees patient's for a variety of health and wellness issues and is very good at what she does. I've been to many acupuncturists and am very afraid of needles; her technique is grounded and far more gentle any other acupuncturists I have been too. So if you are contemplating acupuncture as part of your wellness plan, you have to try her out. I totally recommend her (and not just because I am married to her). Check out her website at:

Jennifer Rose Acupuncture

Here are a couple of shots I took with my iPhone. It's definitely going to be an awesome place to get a treatment.

The Thrill of Smart Phone Photography https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2018/1/the-thrill-of-smart-phone-photography I'm always amazed at how fast technology changes. In high school it was beepers that would alert you to go find a payphone to make a call. Today we can take high resolution still photos and video on a device that is smaller than those original beepers. And the compact size makes it great for being a fly on the wall or quickly moving it to new and interesting angles. The following images were made with my iPhone7+ over the past few weeks. While I love shooting with my Nikon DSLR, it's not always practical, especially when I want to fully interact with our 3-year-old son.

Shallow Depth of Field https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2017/12/shallow-depth-of-field Many professional photographers use a Shallow Depth of Field (DoF) to get a subject to stand out in photograph and clean up the background from distracting content. They do this by using a wider aperture and longer focal range. The closer you get to your subject, the less DoF you get. I love using a 70-200 f/2.8 for this reason. See below for examples of my work using either a wider aperture and/or a longer lens.

Minimalism in Photography https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2017/7/minimalism-in-photography I think one of the hardest things to do in photography is to minimize your subject matter for more impact. These are some examples I came across in my archives of my attempts to do just that.

Black and White Street Photography https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2017/7/black-and-white-street-photography My favorite way to showcase random finds while shooting in the street is to process in black and white. Monochrome is a good way to isolate a subject and intensify the emotion of a scene. The below are some shots ranging from the Beach in Ventura to the street of downtown Los Angeles.

From the Archives: December 27, 2010 https://www.peteralexanderphotography.com/blog/2017/2/from-the-archives-december-27-2010 Snow Geese and other birds gather in the rice fields along highway 99 about 10 miles south of Chico, CA and 10 miles Northeast of Oroville, CA. Rice, Almonds, Figs and other agricultural areas are havens for birds and wildlife. I spotted this gaggle of geese on my way back to Southern CA from visiting my brother in Chico.
