Used Nikon D100 for $18!

Hi everyone! I bought one of the cameras I dreamed about way back in the day…for only $18!! These days folks make fun of you for having even a 3 year old phone, so it was a nice challenge to use a digital camera from 2002! Here are some of the pictures I got with […]

More Canon EOS RP Portraits

With all the hoopla around the Canon EOS R5 and R6 announcements I thought I’d post some recent random portraits taken with the RP and random lenses.  I’ve figured out how to get more “oomph” out of the raw files to my liking.  It just makes me scratch my head at why Canon made the […]

Sam’s Club 6×8″ Window Photo Book

This came in the other day after a pretty long wait, a Sam’s Club’s 6×8″ Photo Book with a windowed cutout in the cover.  They have two other cover choices but I opted for the the cheapest option at $6.86 just to see the quality.  The first thing you notice is, that’s an awful big […]

Caffeine and Octane – July 5, 2020

Caffeine and OctaneJuly 5, 2020  |  Perimeter Mall  |  Atlanta, GA   First Caffeine and Octane of this summer season because of well, you know… So it was fun to be able to actually go out and take pictures (and afterwards eat good food!)  Stars of the show in my opinion were: the Koenigsegg Regera […]

Sam’s Club Misc Prints

I’m still waiting for my other prints, but here’s what came in the other day: a mousepad, an 8×10″ puzzle and 50 free prints.  (It seems the drawback for Sam’s Club Free Shipping on all photo print items is that I have to wait a very long time.  7-14 business days is a bit frustrating […]

Sam’s Club (Fujifilm) 8×8″ Lay Flat Photo Book Review

Hello everyone, I got these in the other day, 8×8″ Lay Flat Premium Photo Books from Sam’s Club.  These are essentially smaller more portable versions of the 12×12″ books that I order through Costco.  In fact they are printed at the same Fujifilm plant in SC.  It’s just odd that Costco doesn’t offer this size […]

Sam’s Club 4×6″ Lay Flat Mini Photo Book Review

Hello everyone, these came in yesterday, a new product offered by Sam’s club: 4×6″ Lay Flat Mini Photo Books starting at $6.86!  I designed a few so I could get a feel of the interface and of course see how the print quality is.  Here are some of my initial thoughts. Notes: Very nice sturdy […]

Sam’s Club 6×6″ Calendar Review

Hi there everyone I decided to try some of Sam’s Club’s photo print items.  I’m still using Costco for my big books and other photographic prints, but Sam’s Club actually offers a bunch more items in different sizes and options.  So like most things in life, it’s useless to argue one brand over another, if […]

Costco 11.5×14″ Calendar Review

As y’all know from my past posts, I’m a big fan of the 12×12″ Costco photobooks.  Since I’m sitting at home all day everyday in 2020 thus far, I’ve occupied my time organizing my various visual work (i.e. digital photo hoarding) ;).  I thought it would be nice to make some calendars, just to see […]

Quarantine Design Project: “Fake” Lifestyle Mag!

My “Fake” Lifestyle/Girl Magazine! Again, every photo except one was by me. All editing and layout by me. Again, just practicing some design while under the countrywide quarantine here in the U.S. (I sure do hope all of the restaurants depicted are still around after all this is over)

Quarantine Design Project: “Fake” Fashion Mags!

Another Design Project I gave myself, make some “fake” Fashion Magazines!  Again, all the photos and design by me, shamelessly copying the elegant and simple magazines I thumbed through when I was younger.

Quarantine Design Project: “Fake” Wedding Mag!

I hope everyone is doing okay during the pandemic and quarantine.  I renewed the domain name and hosting for my website the other day, and realized I’ve had it for 17 years now.  Crazy.  In all that time never thought the world would be under these unique circumstances. Anyways, I’ve been giving myself different creative […]

Spring in Georgia 2020

Well, with all that’s going on in the world right now, at least it’s looking really pretty out there… 🙃

Hmong Women Resource Alliance – Volleyball Fundraiser – 3-07-2020

March 7. 2020  |  Monroe, GA It sure was brisk this morning for the volleyball tournament, but glad I got up early and made it out to Monroe.  Everyone was competitive and the spikes were serious.  Hopefully this is the last cold day for “winter” in Georgia, as the spring forward time switch is Sunday.  […]

Chin National Day – Atlanta, GA – February 22, 2020

Congrats to the Chin Burmese Community of Atlanta for organizing such a fun event!  This was my first time attending, as I’ve missed it every single year.  It was really neat to be able to document this for one of the newest refugee immigrant communities here in Atlanta. I started off life in the U.S. […]

Canon EOS RP and Nikon 105mm 1.4E

One way I get through our wacky Georgia winters is that I mess around with my various oddball camera and lens combos.  The Nikon 105mm 1.4E is my main portrait lens that lives on my Nikon bodies, but for this quick Sunday hangout, I thought it would be fun to see what it can do […]

Viltrox LED Light for Portraits

I’ve had a couple of these ~$35 LED lights in my bag for a few years now, but never thought to do a post about them.  Back many years ago, when we made/converted a ceiling light into a panel, it was a novel and simple idea, but the technology has definitely improved and come down […]

Snow in Georgia 2020

The weather here in Georgia can be so weird.  After 70 degree days, rain, and floods, we had a short but amazing snowfall on the morning of Sat February 8, 2020! Luckily none of it turned to ice on the roads and we got a nice backdrop for yet another spontaneous photo/food adventure!

Some of my Work on the Sigma-Sein Website!

Big thanks to Sigma Japan for listing me next to other talented creatives that use Sigma cameras and lenses!  (I screen captured the Japanese language one because it looks so cool!) 🙂 Here’s the link to the english version: https://www.sigma-sein.com/en/neighbors/BoonVong/
