Canon v Fujifilm v Sigma v Nikon

Thanks to Tram for wanting photos the other week! It’s so nice to have a photogenic model that is also super at doing hair and makeup! 😉 This was also a good opportunity to test some of the gear collecting dust on the shelf before I settled on one for the whole shoot. The grid […]

I didn’t get to stay long but big thanks to all the friendly cosplayers that posed for pictures on Sunday morning!  IRL stuff is much better than the online world! 😉 Again, feel free to use my photos in your social media feeds or for whatever! It’s okay! Anyone that would like to shoot again […]

Momocon 2022 Photos and a walk around Atlanta

This past Memorial Day weekend was full of events down here in Atlanta.  Almost too much and the traffic proved it.  Here’s a few of the things one could have attended on Saturday alone: Jazz Fest at Piedmont Park, Momocon, an Atlanta United game, Caribbean Festival in Central Park, a Vegan food festival, an R&B […]

Friday Adventure – 2022-05-27

It was a fun day with my little/not so little anymore baby bear!  No real plan today, just left the house with an “old” Pentax K10D, an “ancient” Nikon D100 and a Sony A7.  Here’s what we did and shot on a day with really nice weather. The morning started off with an impromptu P.E. […]

Sigma SD15 Photos and Thoughts

The Short: A Sigma with probably the best and most vibrant colors of all the Sigma DSLRs, with the responsiveness and reliability that was missing from the earlier SD14–BUT, it’s also a Sigma camera with probably the craziest highlight blowing potential in all exposure modes and picture settings and hints of the inconsistent white balance […]

Hanging Out – 2022-05-14

When the Apple Photos app makes curated memories from the camera roll, it likes to title most things of mine, “Hanging Out.” Which is great because that’s definitely tops on my list of fun things to do.  Here’s what we ended up doing after the multicultural festival at the mall, come take a drive with […]

Gwinnett Multicultural Fest 2022

Random Food!

Here are random things that I’ve been fortunate enough to have eaten recently from our lovely food paradise that is Metro Atlanta! I know I’m biased, but until you’ve driven around looking around for good Asian food in cities around the southeast, you don’t know how good we got it.  Anyways, here’s random dishes I […]

Dalton, GA

Again, catching up on old event recaps.  After the GAWP event I didn’t want to sit in traffic all the way down 75 into Atlanta, so I walked around downtown Dalton.  It’s a very nice city at the foothills of the mountains.  While driving I found this really nice house with tons of kwanza cherry […]

ACE Event – The Lola at Southern Dairies

Catching up on posting a few recap photos from past events.  This space was really nice! Unlike the plain corporate in the heart of the city ones that I’m used to, the open space and lighting made for some nice photos.  The communal workspace is right behind Ponce City Market and I think there’s a […]

Chattahoochee Nature Center Event Photos

Here are a few photos from the event I helped cover after the Johns Creek Intl Festival.  Pretty much like everyone else, if I haven’t been to a particular location for event photography work, I google to see the logistics of the place and what other folks have shot.  Not every event is the same […]

Fujifilm S5 Pro – Sample Photos

So I added another “old” camera to the lineup this past month, a Fujifilm S5 Pro!  I’d always wanted this camera since about 2006 or 2007 but I had a Nikon D200 at the time so this camera was always on the get it later when it’s cheap wish list.  Now that time has made […]
