More Fireworks Shots from Astoria Park in Queens, New York City on June 30, 2014

Posted: 01 Jul 2014 11:25 PM PDT

I uploaded just two photos last night and to be honest they were 'meh' photos. I just wanted to get the story out there without spending too much time editing and making the photos look 'PhotoShopped' -- by using PhotoShop on them.

More of these and other photos I've taken can be found on my Flickr photostream at 
https://www.flickr.com/photos/johnthiel/

 

In the morning, there was an e-mail from CNN asking me about the photos and I responded right away with several more photos which attempted to include here, and which are similarly unedited, not even cropped, straight from the camera.

Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties with CNN's iReport site, not all of the photos I attempted to upload--about ten--made it, including the best shots I really wanted to show you.  (Again, you can see these on Flickr at the address above.} Nor am I able to add the photos later without creating an entirely new report.  I can edit anything but I can't add or subtract photos or video to a report that already exists.  Someone at CNN needs to work on that. 

 

I would write a long 'how to,' and I may still do it before the main event of Fourth of July, but for right now I just want to share some images and let you know that just about anyone could take similarly good shots with any camera capable of manual settings and something to hold the camera steady, such as a tripod.

 

If you want a whole lesson, I recommend you look up Digital Photography School which provides easy to understand, professional level photography lessons for free.

 

I shot these with a Canon T4i using an EF-S 18-135mm STM lens (a kit lens) and a cheap tripod I received for free years ago.

The 100% Bacon Bun Burger (aka the Ultimate Zero Carb Bacon Burger)

Posted: 01 Jul 2014 09:04 AM PDT

Step up your grilled burger game this July 4th with the ultimate bacon barger featuring an all bacon bun!

 

If you're like me, you've had more than your share of bacon burgers. The problem is, nine times out of ten the actual amount of bacon on the burger is somewhat lacking.

 

In an effort to remedy the situation, I've developed the ultimate bacon burger, a ground chuck patty grilled to perfection then sandwiched between the BACON BUN!

Outrunning a Water Spout!

Posted: 30 Jun 2014 05:13 PM PDT

What a rush! We had just finished snorkeling Sombrero Reef in Florida. Just as we were leaving a storm kicked up that produced a water spout. As we quickly retreated, it formed and dissipated three times, and we tried to capture it on film. Here are some of my favorite shots with my family.

Little Characters Touring Lebanon and Having Fun in Beirut

Posted: 30 Jun 2014 05:08 AM PDT

Welcome to my photography project started weeks ago with my two sisters, a project that will tour you magnificent Lebanon with some interesting Lego characters, the project meant to be a shout out and a call for our loved ones, friends and family in Sweden and the UK, and to all people living abroad to come and tour Lebanon this summer and explore some real cool places.

 

My miniatures and I would love to meet Becky and CNN's connect the world team while in Beirut mid July.
