I'm a Strobist

In the last couple months I've become a strobist. I've put together a lighting system based on the ideas of David Hobby at

I've been piecing together lighting that I can keep in my Chrome Messenger Bag Here's some examples of my most recent work.

Photos from the Archive

The first two photos on my Flickr account. They were taken while I was at college in Wyoming back in 05. Unfortunately I had all my photos from when I started up to about a year ago when I moved on CDs in a little CD book and I haven't been able to find it since I moved to a new house. At least I have some low res versions on Flickr. Now I have all my photos on external hard drives. I probably should back those up too.....

Bacon Day Breakfast

Step 1 Wake Up
After 11 AM


Step 2 Buy Bacon
Get the good stuff. I don't have a butcher nearby but the organic market down the street came through. Thick cut. All natural. No antibiotics. No added Hormones. All Vegetarian feed. No Preservatives. MMMMMMM. Happy pigs make happy bacon.


Step 3 Open Bacon
Use a fancy Japanese knife if you want a cool looking picture.


Step 4 Warm Pan
Put a little oil in the pan so they don't stick and warm the pan on medium heat. Wait till it is hot to put the bacon in.


Step 4 Cook Bacon
Put the bacon in the pan. Don't crowd. let it cook.


Step 5 Wait
Take a deep smell of the glorious bacon.


Step 6 Almost Ready to Flip
Do the first flip when the bacon is starting to get brown on the pan side.


Step 7 Flip Bacon
Don't just flip. You must rotate to ensure maximum cookage.


Step 8 Be the Bacon
You must employ all 5 senses to achieve bacon nirvana. Ignore your personal ego. It's all about the bacon.


Step 9 Flip Again
When the edges start to get crispy it's time to flip the bacon again.


Step 10 Perfect Bacon
I like the whole range of bacon. A little crispy on the edges, mostly crunchy, a little soft on the wrinkles.


Step 11 The Bacon Gods Will Strike You Down if You Waste That Bacon Grease
May I suggest eggs?


Step 12 Holy Shit


Step 13 Lightly Dress Eggs
I went with some sea salt, fresh ground pepper, and some hot sauce.


Step 14 Eat
Wallow in the glorious amazing bacon. You are one step closer to enlightenment.

My first baby photo shoot! I like to shoot a little dark, but I realized that it doesn't work too well with babies. Babies are soft and fuzzy and so should their pictures. Right? What do you guys think?

When in the Course of Human Events~

~it becomes necessary for one blog to dissolve the political bands which have connected it with another blog, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle the blog, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that blog should declare the causes which impel them to the separation of the blog.

Yes, I've created a new blog~~

All my bikey stuff will be there now. I've been thinking about starting a blog dedicated to my passion for biking for a while now. I guess now it that time. Please stay tuned to this blog for everything Dusty and everything San Francisco (Well, except San Francisco bikey stuff, yeah, that'll be here like I said a minute ago.)

Business Card Design

IMG_2004 copy

My sister wanted to see my business card and so here it is. When I'm out shooting pictures people always ask where where I'll post the photos. I tell them my name and to look me up on flickr, but I doubt anyone ever remembers my name. I decided to make these cards to guide people to my flickr so they can go check out my pictures and help promote myself. I ordered them from moo and I couldn't be happier with the result. I ordered 100 cards for 20 bucks or so and the print turned out very nice. On the back of the card it simply says~~

Dustin Jensen

Tell me what you think. I don't really know much about business card design.

Hurrah! Business Cards

I just got my business cards in the mail today. Just one more notch in Mission: Shameless Self Promotion. The minute I got the cards I started handing them out to all my coworkers. I can't wait to hit the streets with my camera and start handing them out! :D

Vélo Vogue is a the San Francisco-based bicycle fashion blog I've been reading. I snapped some pictures of some fashionable riders around my neighborhood and submitted them a little while back. Check the the blog to see my submission and some San Francisco cycling fashion.


P to the Ricia

Other than a couple extreme Frisbee session mentioned earlier, I've also been busy working on a portrait portfolio. I've spent more money on camera equipment than I'd like to think about so I suppose it wouldn't hurt to try and get a couple $$$$ back.

This is what I've figured out so far~

1) Take pretty pictures
2) Promote yourself on the internet
3) ??????
4) Profit

If anyone knows what step three is all about let me know, and in the meantime please check out My Portfolio of Pretty Pictures

George W. Bush Sewer Plant

George W. Bush Sewer Plant

"In 50 years from now, we want people to see George Bush's name on that plant, and ask each other what went wrong. We want them to be reminded of the Iraq war, and his other dramatic mistakes, and this is the perfect way to do it."

Any proposal supported by a petition carrying the signatures of more than 7,168 voters must go to the polls. The proposal has 8,500 signatures.

Thoughts While Bike Touring


Long but good day. Back roads, sleepy farm towns. Strawberry and artichoke fields caressing the baby blue sky, sliced by the sad lonely road.
