Snow in Georgia – 01-16-2022

It snowed here in Georgia, first time in a few years I think. Very nice backdrop for photos, but awful for the folks that lost power and heat. Anyways, here’s what I managed to get with many various cameras!

Black and White Conversions from Sigma Foveon Cameras

I gathered some random raw files I shot last year from my Sigma cameras and did some black and white conversions.  Some from color, and some from infrared.  You lose a bit of the drama in converting the near IR photos, but I mostly wanted to see if it’s unique enough to be doing more […]

Anamorphic: Petit Le Mans 2021

Here are my photos from a quick stay at Petit Le Mans this year.  Had the normal gear for regular pictures, but I thought it would be neat to mostly shoot with the anamorphic ISCO taking lens combo.  It definitely has an Xpan type of look.

Georgia vs Alabama SEC Championship – 12-04-21

Here are my photos from the big game.  The final score could have been a lot better, but I had fun.  Learned a long time ago to not put your happiness into things you can’t control–like silly football games.  I only took one camera, the weather was an amazing 71 degrees, there were still signs […]

K&J Lao Wedding – 11-27-2021 Factory Atlanta

Here are my photos as a guest from the wedding on Saturday. Everyone knows it’s impossible for me to show up at any event (work or otherwise) without a camera (or two/three) in hand. Thanks to my “interns” Bounsa and Cecilia for helping out! Hopefully the ice cream at Frosty Caboose was fair compensation. 🙂

Anime Day Gwinnett – November 27, 2021

Had a wedding to attend on Saturday evening, but during the day I checked out the Anime Day event down the road at Gas South District (formerly Gwinnett Center).  Pretty cool show, especially for $5.00!  Parking was also $5.  It’s nice to see a show affordable enough for the young folk to get in and […]

Fall in Georgia 2021 – Rolling Post

Hello everyone, I thought it would be neat to have a rolling post/feed of some of the random photos I’ve shot down here in Georgia this season.  Fall is an odd time here, it gets hot, then somewhat cold, then hot again, and then finally the leaves change.  Depending on where you live in metro […]

2021 Petit Le Mans – Fri Photo Blog

Motul Petit Le Mans – 2021-11-12 Fri Photo BlogMichelin Raceway Road Atlanta – Braselton, GA Hello everyone here are some of my photos from a lovely brisk morning at Road Atlanta for this year’s Petit Le Mans.  Similar to cars, there are just too many cameras and lenses to pick only one, so here’s what […]

Petit Le Mans Kickoff: Suwanee, GA – 11-09-2021

Road Atlanta had their Petit Le Mans Kickoff right in our backyard of Suwanee, so I headed there with my random gear.  It was good to try out the possible kit that I’m still deciding on for this weekend’s race.  I shot my normal Nikon 35/105mm combo, but also wanted to try out the Isco […]

Suwanee Classic Car Show – November 7, 2021

This past sunday was the annual classic car show in Suwanee Town center (www.suwanee.com). It’s been a great start to fall thus far with the brisk mornings, fall colors, and of course the Atlanta Braves! I’ll try to post more going forward since I’ve been shooting with almost all the random gear in my fleet.  […]

Dunwoody Lao Cultural Performance + Tum Pok Pok!

May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month here in good old Georgia. Thanks to the city of Dunwoody for hosting a small pop up event that allowed our girls to showcase their talents and passion for their heritage. Dinner was at the new Tum Pok Pok off Buford Hwy near City Farmer’s Market.  Pretty […]

Happy Lunar New Year 2021

Happy Chinese/Viet/Lunar New Year everyone!  Here are some of my photos from last week’s festivities from a few of our local CFM/HK Supermarkets.  Please check them out for the best selection of food and groceries in metro Atlanta.  www.cityfarmers.market. I sure hope that by next year the big events and pageants will return again! 🙂

Late Post: Fall in Georgia Colors

Last year in 2020 I did manage to take a lot of pictures.  There weren’t as many portrait sessions/hangouts that is pretty much my lifeblood, but all things considered I can’t complain about still having the freedom to even have photo walks.  The images were sparsely posted on FB, but most just ended up on […]

Atlanta – Photo Walk – 01-25-2021

It’s been a cold and cloudy winter down here in Georgia, but that’s pretty normal.  With the lack of events happening I figured now would be a good time to get out there and try to capture some different landmarks and views around Atlanta. I’ve always said it’s good to be a tourist in your […]

Animated GIF Memories

The other day I converted lots of my random videos into animated gifs.  I wanted a random grid of looping videos on my main portfolio site, but it was definitely slow to load and a bandwidth killer.  It was still a fun half afternoon experiment though, manually cutting and exporting these in Photoshop, the old […]

Sigma SD10 and SD15 “Review” and Photos (in 2021!)

Hello everyone! Around the holidays I added another tool to the fleet, an ancient Sigma SD10! This camera was announced sometime in 2003, and I lucked out because it came with 3 lenses, a flash, battery grip, and a hard case!  Plus the camera looked like it had barely been used!  So here’s what I’ve […]

Nikon 105mm 1.4E on F100 and Portra 160

Film will always have a certain pull on me.  Even though I have tons of digital cameras that will produce instant pictures that I can edit immediately, the texture and process of film is something unique in this era.  One combo I haven’t seen any photographer online use is the Nikon 105mm 1.4E on a […]

Talento Latino Modeling School Unique Fashion Show 2020

Talento Latino Modeling SchoolUnique Fashion Show 2020 – 10th AnniversaryDecember 20, 2020  | La Mansion Event Hall  |  Chamblee, GA Thanks to everyone who posed for pictures! 🙂  These are a few images that caught my eye.  More to come in the following post! Event Photos: Boon Vong

Caffeine and Octane – 09-06-2020

It hasn’t been a normal year, but for this second half, I’m glad that every first Sunday of the month gives us a chance to basically stroll through Gran Turismo in real life. Thanks to Caffeine and Octane, the US’s biggest monthly car show, for giving us something to look forward to! Best part of […]

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 […]
