Birmingham, AL

H&H (+ 1): Pre Wedding

Notes: Lucked out and the weather was great.  Didn’t have to go far (well not counting the drive to Statesboro from ATL), except to the Botanical Garden and Downtown.  The golden light that illuminated everything in pastels was a million times better than any electric cathode LED contraption out there.  That’s why it’s so valuable […]

Vivian

Last week of Fall colors here in Georgia. Smashing Pumpkins and Matthew Sweet is always on my soundtrack this time of year…

New Orleans: Food and Feauxteaux

New Orleans, Easter Weekend.  When I do get to travel, I take photos, I eat, and here I am writing about it.  🙂 I’ve been to New Orleans, probably over 20 times now.  We arrived in time for the sunset and the glow of the city. Crescent Pie and Sausage Company Eggplant with crawfish sitting […]

Waterfalls

Notes: Pix from a day trip to my usual waterfall spots in N.E. Georgia–my old stomping grounds. Intermixed with the trailers and  chicken coops are some really great spots, seemingly more so than here in Suburbia, ATL.  Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 on the Canon, a combo I’ve been shooting with for the last few adventures.  Still […]

Minjee

Model: Minjee MUA/Stylist: Nhi Notes:  I wonder if all the girls out there realize that most guys (including myself) prefer it when you ladies are just normal, without much makeup.  We like you in t-shirts and jeans, scars and all…  Granted, the first images are beauty shots for a specific portfolio purpose, but if it […]

Pauline

Model: Pauline MUA / Hair: Nhi Notes: I tend to shoot with a different style or theme than the last one.  Just a way to keep from getting bored, and also use the gear that was just sitting on the shelf.  People only see the end results, and not the general flow of the evening, […]

Màu Hồng

Notes:  There’s this tree on the side of the road I frequently drive on, and it sure is pretty every single spring.  Lots of gear for this spur of the moment shoot (for me at least), Nikon+Canon, Sigma IR, and different techniques as well, Nikon wireless CLS, radio triggered strobe, and the heat reflector you […]

L&J: Pre Wedding

Notes: Almost a full day of shooting on this test run.  Thanks to everyone who came out and stuck it out through the warm weather.  Luckily the sakura and other trees were in bloom, and I tried to make the best out of local spots, from up the street to across town.  Another camera juggling fest as well, and […]

Momocon 2011

Momocon in Infrared Notes: Photos from this year’s MomoCon.  Only went on Saturday, but it was fun.  Great weather and city atmosphere, but it was somewhat chaotic and the long lines kept us from going anywhere.  So it was more like a really long extended lunch in high school where the kids are free to run […]

Cinématique

Notes: “Team Neekon” for when we take photos…and “Team Jobless” for when we battle in Fat Princess!! 🙂

Ana

Notes: All the snow in the Southeast is a bother, but it sure does look good in photos.  The Sun as the best and only light, and the icy landscape as a big reflector. I keep on forgetting to use the Lumiquest Softbox III.  It’s small and easily fits into my bag.  Combined with the sunlight, the results […]

Video: 3em Concert / Thai Nguyen Fashion Show

3em Entertainment Concert / Thai Nguyen Fashion Show Music: It’s all White (Fejik Mix) by Thomas Fejik and ID by Mark Eteson Notes: Video clips that I shoot inbetween taking still photos (with another camera), Canon for video, Nikon for stills

Miss Viet =)

MUA and Hair: Nhi Model: Christina, Miss Vietnam Georgia 2010 Location: My front yard 🙂 Technical Notes: All primes on this one, that is, lenses with a fixed focal length.  50mm, 85mm, and 105mm.  Have a hard time deciding which one is my favorite for portraiture, so I just use them all.
