Sunday Funday + Bonus Rainbow!

Thanks to Chalita and her dad for randomly stopping by the other day!  Here are some photos from a somewhat spontaneous mini adventure.  The rainbow was definitely unplanned, but for Georgia in the summer, it always has to shower unexpectedly somewhere.  Stepped out of the house with 3 cameras, and 3 different lenses.  Nikon D610 […]

ZNO Photo Album Review

Hello everyone, I’ve been using ZNO for some recent books (as the Fujifilm books from Costco are no longer available), and I would have to say I really like the quality.  I got some photos printed on the plastic substrate a few years back and really liked them so I figured the full books would […]

Guardian Works – Atlanta, GA

Here are some room and decor photos from a recent event at Guardian Works–a cool spot in Atlanta that I hadn’t worked at yet.  It’s very unique with so much character in the walls and material.  Again, hope the photos can help out future event photogs and clients. I know I always do my googling […]

M&G Wedding – Le Fais Do Do – Forest Park, GA

Here are some room shots from a recent lovely wedding, at the new location for Le Fais Do Do, now on the southside of Atlanta.  Great looking interior like the old one.  Hope these photos can help any future clients or photographers looking to book this space.

Road Trip – Day 7 – Springdale + St George + Vegas

St. George is definitely a great city to stop by and explore.  There’s a free botanical garden with amazing colorful desert plants, and a high vantage point overlooking the city.  There’s Utah Tech, a lovely white church, AND an Asian grocery store/restaurant!  They have bamboo and pork buns too, along with the normal assortment of […]

Utah Day 5 – Tropic + Kanab + Zion

It was time to say goodbye to Tropic and its awesome hoodie weather, with another quick morning photo walk.  Sunrise wasn’t as nice as yesterday, but the light right afterwards was pretty amazing. Tropic to Zion is only like less than an hour, but a worthy detour is the town of Kanab, near the Arizona […]

Utah Day 4 – Tropic and Bryce Canyon Sunset

The night before actually had some moisture in the air, so it made for a very nice sunrise in Tropic.  Just like back home, photo worthy sunrises and sunsets usually come after some type of weather. I startled this little black cat as I was filming in the morning.  I guess its home was nestled […]

Utah Day 3 – Tropic + Escalante + Panguitch

The weather in Tropic this morning was once again cool and refreshing.  In the back of the cabin area is a barn for chickens and they are pretty much the alarm clock.  The whole time I couldn’t help but find parallels to this place and Samneua Laos. The first stop of the day was Mossy […]

Utah Day 2 – Tropic + Bryce Canyon + Kodachrome Basin

One of the best things about the town of Tropic Utah is the weather.  In June it was an amazing 58 degrees in the morning and a high of about 74 degrees when we were there.  All thanks to the high elevation of 6,000+ ft.  There’s a lot of wind and tons of UV light […]

Utah Road Trip – Day 1 – Las Vegas, NV to Tropic, UT

Hello everyone here’s the first post of my trip out to lovely/lonely Utah.  It was definitely a landscape photographer’s dream.  I didn’t pack too much in terms of gear, I only brought along a Fuji X100, Sony A7 and 3 lenses, and a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera (original one), and of course my iPhone […]

Thanks to everyone for posing (even those outside […]

iPhone 3GS Camera Revisited: Lovely Nostalgic Vintage Aesthetic

Behold, here are some amazing lo-fi aesthetic photos from the iPhone 3GS! Again thanks to Phalatda for letting me take a trip down memory lane with this lovely image making device. I’m being very serious here, this phone renders some images like a disposable film camera.  The newer cameras and phones are super great for […]

Photo Hangout: X100 + X100V(ivian) :)

Thanks to Vivian and Sean for hanging out on Saturday.  It was the only overcast day in between some rainy ones in late April, but I think we got some good results! Congrats to Vivian for finding an X100V! I remember being obsessed in searching for the original one back in 2011?! If you look, […]

Sigma SD15 at Lao New Year – Extra Shots

On Sunday I brought along my Sigma SD15 as one of my bonus cameras.  Just to get some field time with it and hopefully decent raw files that can be used for comparisons or editing “fun.”  I’ve obviously written about these unique cameras on my site many times, but here’s an actual attempt at using […]
