Sigma Infrared Location Scouting around Atlanta Pt. 1

Hello everyone! So last week I decided I was only going to shoot my infrared Sigma DSLRs. Normally I have all sorts of cameras to produce colorful work, but I thought it would be a good choice to go all IR in hopes of getting a specific vibe. The spooky illustrative kind of mood that […]

Hanging Out – 2022-05-14

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 […]

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 […]

Just some fun photos from the first “official” day of Spring down here in Georgia.

Spring Peach Trees

Every year it’s a little different in terms of blooming color here in Georgia.  I remember at the start of the pandemic the colors were really nice and vibrant with a purity in the air.  This year the cold snap kinda ruined some of the blossoms.  Here’s hoping the cold weather will finally be gone […]
