The student photographers I see at Oakland Cemetery normally only focus on the graves and stone monuments, but I am mostly attracted to the color and texture. I’m sure one of the movie companies will film something here one day, since it is such a picturesque Atlanta landmark.
Notes: I don’t think I go out and take pictures, I more hang out, think of things to do other than being responsible, and the photos just naturally come out of it. A friend in college once told me he never got any of his work done because, “I was too fun to be around.” […]
Notes: All the snow in the Southeast is a bother, but it sure does look good in photos. The Sun as the best and only light, and the icy landscape as a big reflector. I keep on forgetting to use the Lumiquest Softbox III. It’s small and easily fits into my bag. Combined with the sunlight, the results […]
Notes: It snowed in the ATL on Christmas, so of course I had to step outside. Thanks to KT for putting up with the bitter cold just so I could shoot and then write about it. If you guys have been following for the last several posts I’ve pretty much been trying to give a […]
MUA and Hair: Nhi Model: Christina, Miss Vietnam Georgia 2010 Location: My front yard 🙂 Technical Notes: All primes on this one, that is, lenses with a fixed focal length. 50mm, 85mm, and 105mm. Have a hard time deciding which one is my favorite for portraiture, so I just use them all.

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 […]
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, […]
Notes: First lovely day in Atlanta in a long time, brief break from the doldrums of winter. The park was packed, frisbees flying about and dogs of all coats and colors. Rode my bike around and around, cool in the shade, warm in the sunlight, just people watching. Reminded me of stuff, of growing up, […]
Notes: TFP? How about RFP? Rice for Photos…as in trading time and talent for fun and food…I know this post is somewhat unrelated to the pictures, but it’s still the same old story–how does one make a living off of art? Honestly, I don’t think you can. About the best we can do is make sure […]
Misc Notes: Water museum with oddly no water and Mall of Georgia, whatever’s close by. Too cold to get into a groove, but the manual focusing is getting better… 🙂 Used Silkypix for the mkII raws, and there isn’t much under the hood of those .cr2’s, at least not as much as what I believe can […]
Technical Notes: Nikon MF 50mm f/1.4 Ai-S on a Canon body. Focus ring is nice and smooth, and the glass definitely has the vintage look from that era. Bokeh is quite harsh and somewhat distracting compared to the newer lenses, and the lens aberrations can’t be fixed with the Canon software, but get over it, it’s digital […]
