Before the hurricane and tropical depression rolled in we were on our way to a nice colorful fall down here in Georgia. But as usual, the wind and rain knocked down so much of the foliage around me. I did manage to squeeze in some film shots alongside the normal digitals. It’s still fun to […]
Thanks to Olivia, Nadia and Mena for the great collaborative senior photo shoot! It was really fun exploring and shooting in a totally new (to me) area. Crazy how two hours north of Atlanta can have such different color this early in October. Great job team! Here are a few photo highlights of our day, […]
Binders Art Supplies and Frames | Buckhead | Atlanta, GA www.bindersart.com | www.rossinfineart.com So glad I attended the Ross Rossin artist talk at Binders (Peachtree Road) last night. Lots of great wisdom and life tips from a modern day master. I definitely need to get back into drawing as I’m super rusty! 😭 It was […]
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 […]
Wat Lao Buddha Sattha Dhamma Sunday May 22, 2022 | Alto, GA It was a short stay on Sunday, but very cool idea on having a pageant winner reunion! Gear Used: Canon EOS RP and Nikon 105mm 1.4E (all manual focus!), Fuji X100, and Olympus E-M1, rolling with odd gear on this very hot and […]
This is what it looks like this year on Arabia Mountain and other random spots around town. Banh Mi on that flowering oasis spot seems to be a tradition, I hadn’t done that since ages ago with Christine. 🙂 Thanks to Byung and Claudia for taking my picture! The flowers and desert plants truly are […]
Today was a quick fun shoot with the blooming peach tree and a surprise trip to the carnival! Hard to believe I’ve known this superstar since she was a “baby potato!” Cotton Candy and Del Taco for dinner?! Truly the life of a star. 🙂
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. […]
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 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
Well, with all that’s going on in the world right now, at least it’s looking really pretty out there… 🙃
One way I get through our wacky Georgia winters is that I mess around with my various oddball camera and lens combos. The Nikon 105mm 1.4E is my main portrait lens that lives on my Nikon bodies, but for this quick Sunday hangout, I thought it would be fun to see what it can do […]
The weather here in Georgia can be so weird. After 70 degree days, rain, and floods, we had a short but amazing snowfall on the morning of Sat February 8, 2020! Luckily none of it turned to ice on the roads and we got a nice backdrop for yet another spontaneous photo/food adventure!

Japan Fest 2019 | Gwinnett Forum | Saturday, September 21, 2019 Notes: Konnichi Wa! Another jam packed weekend at Japan Fest right down the street. I hadn’t been in several years, but good to see that this cultural festival still brings in guests by the tens of thousands. A lot of these images are of […]

Congrats to all the winners and participants in the 2019 Miss Vietnam Georgia Pageant!
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 […]

Nikon 105mm 1.4E Review 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 […]
