Canon EOS RP Portraits

Here are some portraits with the Canon EOS RP in different portrait situations.  Right now, it’s not an A camera for me.  It’s more of a third option.  For video it’s really nice though.  Again, I don’t have any native RF glass yet, I have to use the older EF lenses via the adapter.  While […]

Canon EOS RP Sample Photos and Mini Review

Here are my quick thoughts on the new Canon EOS RP.  At the moment I don’t have any native RF lenses, I’m just using my various EF lenses with the free adapter.  Thus far the image quality is pretty much like every other Canon I’ve had or used in the past 10+ years.  I personally […]

Anamorphic Autumn Photos

For some shoots and wanderings this past Autumn season I did remember to bring my ISCO anamorphic lens combo.  Still so complicated to use, but the field of view of the resulting images looks really nice on my 21:9 monitor.  There’s a lot of skewing that I have to fix manually in post since the […]

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 friends, I would have […]

Springtime on Arabia Mountain

Lovely day for a walk and picnic on Arabia Mountain.  This time of year the diamorpha smallii are in bloom.  These tough and fleshy plants with the red leaves grow in the shallow sandy soil.  In order to sound smart, I copied that from the information sign that you pass on the way up the […]

“Old” Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera still a good tool in 2018?

Yes, I think so!  The first BMPCC is a camera I use for BTS shots due to the no record limit and ease of grading the Pro Res.  The new Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K was announced on 4-9-2018 with an anticipated ship date of this September (let’s hope!) but I still like the […]

Nikon Df “Review” and Sample Images

I wanted this camera since Nikon announced it back in late 2013.  Its high price and quirky ergonomics was definitely polarizing amongst internet photographers back then.  For me though, I shoot so many camera brands, makes, and models, that at the end of the day I see every tool as having some value or strength.  […]

Fall in Georgia I

Notes: I hope everyone is taking advantage of what might be the best season, Fall.  It doesn’t last long here in Georgia, since as I write this, the colder temperatures and wind is tattering what is left of the colorful trees.  When I was younger in college I used to drive around after classes just […]

Buddha Bucha Temple – June 15, 2014

A really hot June Sunday at the Thai Temple in Decatur, with a gathering of 100+ monks for a rare ceremony, the consecration of the ubosot, and the burial of the 9 boundary stones. It was a full weekend, with Thai Classical dancing, alms giving, and free food for all prepared by many volunteers from Buddhist temples ranging from Ohio to Florida. Photos and Event Coverage by Boon Vong.

Atlanta in the Spring

Meet Me on the Equinox Meet Me Halfway

For right now I really can’t travel to far off exotic places.  I’ll just have to find interesting places around town.  While I can’t truly cry foul that I don’t have the means to just jump on a plane and go somewhere, it’s still a grand privilege to be able to drive around wasting gas just to take some pictures and think about things.

Note: My website/blog has seen many changes over the years, but this is pretty much the 700th post!

Lao New Year 2555

I often wonder if all of my Lao New Year photos are actually doing more harm than good.  Because I don’t necessarily post images of what truly happens, when outsiders go to the temple/community center/fairgrounds, they might be in for a shock.  There are many things in the Lao community that I don’t agree with, […]
