Room to Read Event

The Lovett School | Atlanta, GA Notes: John Wood had a pretty comfy position at Microsoft ten years ago.  While travelling through Nepal he visited a quaint school in the mountains and found their “library” was merely a filing cabinet with things left over from hikers and travelers.  Apalled at this he vowed to return with more […]

Kennesaw Photo Meetup

The reason I bring so much glass to these informal shoots is to further familiarize myself with the strengths and weaknesses of various gear in my toolset.  While almost anything can be used to make an image, we each have our own opinions as to which are the better tools to help us achieve the […]

Lao New Year 2010 – Wat Buddha Moongcoon – Riverdale, GA

Tech Notes: 24-105mm IS on the Canon, 70-200 VR on the Nikon, and infrared Sigma.  Great combo.  Maybe since I’ve been playing Final Fantasy XIII so much, with its 3 person fighting structure, figuring out tools for the bag is like setting up your characters for a battle.  Cars and cameras are similar and oddly enough cameras are […]

Jujube Tea

Even when I have to run to the airport, there’s always time for a photoshoot…:)

Sakura + Kimono

Notes: Thanks to Rachel (and Vicki), Monica, and Lan for posing on a cold day at Piedmont Park.  Cherry blossoms don’t last long, maybe 3 to 4 days at most around here.  Again, my “shoots” are almost always organic in nature, mostly with a “let’s see what’s around the corner type of mentality” combined with trying […]

Team Neekon

Notes: I don’t know if any studying really gets done at a coffee shop, but I would have to say these “workshops” work best when you combine talking about cameras and photography with pastries and drinks.  No need to pay somebody to stand in front of a class, just create your own Team “Neekon.”  Ironically enough, all […]

Terminus

Notes: Southeastern Railway Museum, Duluth, GA.  More Photos coming soon.

“Your Photo Here”

Random Notes:  Took a field trip today, and like a little person, I did learn something…this will all seem so really random…maybe it’s because spring seems to finally be here, waking up everyone from the winter doldrums, and perhaps finally setting in motion the different themes and storylines for this year… Met and talked with […]

Spring (…almost)

Notes: Forgot how much I like the 70-200mm f/2.8 for portraits.  Used a good bit of everything in the arsenal for all these, and wouldn’t you know it, didn’t even touch the 85mm f/1.4.  Pix below from the Foveon Sigma.  If only the files look like that out of the camera.  There is hope though, […]
