70-200MM Fairytale Landscape & Macro Photography in San Francisco
In this new vlog video I share a fun adventure through Golden Gate Park with my 70-200mm lens. This time really focusing on abstract patterns and shapes. I spent all day playing around creating macro photography and giving photography tips for using a telephoto lens. I really hope you enjoy this vlog video and collection of images.

My favorite scenes always seem to be ones I stumble upon spontaneously. This tree trunk view reminds me of some sort of Hobbit Home, dug out into the hillside. Using the 70-200mm lens I was able to get some good compression here.
Imagination and creativity are really the most important driving factors for my photography. This close up bark image really reminds me of a topo map of a mountain range or canyon. I really loved playing with the different colors here and even the swirly patterns look a bit like finger prints. I am curious to hear your thoughts, what do you see when you look at this image?
Here are a few variations of bark images from my vlog. I had a blast playing with these textures for awhile. All of these images are focus stacked using the 70-200mm lens.
