Congrats to all the winners and participants in the 2019 Miss Vietnam Georgia Pageant!
One of my next personal photo books will probably be my old portraits shot on film. I’ve posted before about taking a picture of a negative with a DSLR and a macro lens, but thought I’d revisit it with some more “ancient” tech, a Nikon D50. This 14+ year old DSLR doesn’t have much value […]
For some shoots and wanderings this past Autumn season I did remember to bring my ISCO anamorphic lens combo. Still so complicated to use, but the field of view of the resulting images looks really nice on my 21:9 monitor. There’s a lot of skewing that I have to fix manually in post since the […]
I don’t think I’ve posted my thoughts on the Panasonic 7-14mm f/4. I’ve had it for a few years now, and use it for super wide angle shots of interiors of the events/weddings I cover. It has an angle of view similar to the 14-24mm’s of the bigger cameras, but it definitely doesn’t “draw” like […]
The last Imaging USA Expo that I attended was in 2013(!). Technology has really changed since then: 3 axis gimbals hadn’t even hit the market yet, and Sony was still a relatively minor player in the world of still cameras. My how things have changed! I went hoping that Nikon had a booth so I […]
My thoughts on the affordable 12×12 inch lay flat photo books that you can create/order through Costco! Best part is that they are actually printed at Fufjifilm USA!

Event Coverage of the 2018 Atlanta Dragon Boat Festival, held annually after Labor Day in Gainesville, GA. Please join us next year!
So I finally added the Nikon 105mm 1.4 to my portrait kit. I’d been using the Nikon 85mm 1.4D and 105mm 2.8 Micro VR for years now, but decided that this modern lens (introduced in summer 2016) is another magical lens in the Nikkor lineup. After a few test shoots with friends, I would have […]
Some of my favorite cosplay portraits from over the years: MomoCon, Dragon Con, Anime Weekend Atlanta, Cosplayers on Ice, etc!
May 13, 2018 | Alto, GA Hi! My name is Boon. I’m an Atlanta based Artist. I draw, I take pictures!

Sabaidee Pii Mai!
Wat Lao Buddha Moongcoon | Lao New Year 4-15-2018 (2561)
Lovely day for a walk and picnic on Arabia Mountain. This time of year the diamorpha smallii are in bloom. These tough and fleshy plants with the red leaves grow in the shallow sandy soil. In order to sound smart, I copied that from the information sign that you pass on the way up the […]
Event Photography for the Georgia Asian Pacific Islander Bar Association 5th Annual Gala at the Georgia Aquarium
Yes, I think so! The first BMPCC is a camera I use for BTS shots due to the no record limit and ease of grading the Pro Res. The new Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K was announced on 4-9-2018 with an anticipated ship date of this September (let’s hope!) but I still like the […]
I wanted this camera since Nikon announced it back in late 2013. Its high price and quirky ergonomics was definitely polarizing amongst internet photographers back then. For me though, I shoot so many camera brands, makes, and models, that at the end of the day I see every tool as having some value or strength. […]
Here’s a list of the many Lao, Thai, and Cambodian festivals that will be happening here in Georgia in the coming weeks.
Event Photography of the 1st Annual Miss Laotian American Pageant. Norcross Community Center, April 1, 2018. Thanks to all the contestants and volunteers for contributing and giving back to the community.
Some examples of the still photography I’ve been doing around town with my Nikon and ISCO Anamorphic lens combo. I’ve always loved the 2.39:1 aspect ratio of my favorite movies.
