Kodak Ultramax 400 + Nikon F100

Here are some photos from a fresh roll of Kodak Ultramax 400 on the Nikon F100 and various lenses.  About this time last year the 3 pack of Kodak could be found at Walgreens for about $18.99 down here in metro Atlanta.  Then it got jacked up to almost $28 just a few weeks later […]

Nikon 105mm 1.4E on F100 and Fuji Superia 400

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 […]

Nikon F100 + 105mm 1.4E + Expired Kodak Gold 200

Thanks to Thomas for some rolls of expired film!  My guess is the film might have been at least ten years old, but I’m glad it still registered an image.  Here are some examples of the first expired roll on an F100 and 105mm 1.4E.  Out of 24 exposures I think I got about 16 […]

Canon EOS RP + EF 85mm 1.2L II

Hello everyone, just thought I’d post a few random photos from the last couple of years taken with the Canon RP and EF 85mm f/1.2L.  This is the mark II version of the lens and it focuses quite well with the EOS to R Canon adapter.  This lens was pretty sluggish on older DSLRs and […]

Fall in Buford, GA – 2022-11-01

The rain knocked down a lot of the leaves, but it’s still very pretty out there.  With magical early morning light like this almost any camera would have worked, but I used my favorite Fall color camera the Nikon D50 and also a J1 and C Mount lens.  I also shot film, Fuji Superia 400 […]

Fall Photos in Georgia (Gwinnett) – Sigma SD10 – 2022-11-01

The Sigma SD10 is interesting in that the colors it produces is most like a normal DSLR from any of the other brands of the day (Pentax, Minolta, Nikon).  The back LCD preview screen is “wrong” but it has an interesting reddish and violet color shift that is much more saturated than the resulting raw […]

Fall in Georgia (Gwinnett) – 2022-10-29

It’s like nature flipped a switch this past weekend! Just a few pictures from a gloomy morning walk before events on this October Saturday.  Cloudy, sky-less days are actually very good for fall photography I’ve found.

Biserica Ortodoxa Romana Sfintii Imparati Constantin si Elena Romanian Orthodox Church “Saints Constantine & Helen”October 22, 2022  |  Lilburn, GA scechurch.org I went to the Romanian Festival at the church in Lilburn on an amazing autumn Saturday! Very welcoming people and the Rosa Atlanta Bulgarian dancers were really great and colorful. Had the delicious Romanian […]

Diwali Celebration at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

Diwali Celebration at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir October 24, 2022  |  Lilburn, GA Here are some photos from the very impressive Diwali celebration last night. So amazing how this (and many other unique places) is all in our backyard of metro Atlanta. I didn’t use any of my big work cameras (since they don’t allow […]

Fall – Dillard GA to Cashiers NC – 2022-10-16

A few images from before and after the photo shoot (previous post).  Just driving around some of the backroads in Georgia and the main road from Highlands NC into Cashiers.  Very nice and still some time before the whole mountainsides become yellow and orange.  It got crazy cold down here in metro Atlanta this week […]

Birthdays at Julep Farms, Dillard GA – 2022-10-16

It was a lovely day for a “surprise” lunch photo shoot for these amazing ladies! Thanks for letting this guy come along on the last leg of y’all’s birthday weekend getaway up in the mountains. Lunch was at very picturesque Julep Farms and Kitchen up in Dillard, GA.  It’s a bit south of the border […]

Olivia – Fall Portraits – 2022-10-08

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, […]

Fall in Highlands N.C. – 2022-10-08

Took a drive to Highlands North Carolina to take some portraits. It’s still green and uninspiring down here in Georgia, but as soon as I made the turn up into NC the leaves were almost peak!  You can never predict the leaf season around Atlanta, but this year it’s a lot earlier. Anyways, here are […]

Young Atlanta Fashion ShowHigh Museum of Art | Atlanta, GA | August 6, 2022 It was nice meeting everyone at the fashion show! Thanks to every fashionable person for posing for photos. 🙂 Great turnout, even with the crazy summer time rain that didn’t let up until after midnight.  Feel free to use my photos […]

Fujifilm Superia 400 – Portraits and Stuff – Rolls 3+4

So here’s some of what I shot earlier this year on 2 more rolls of Fujifilm Superia 400.  Unlike the two rolls that went into the point and shoot Olympus Stylus I thought I would put the film behind some nice primes.  For one roll I used the Canon EOS 750 and 24mm 1.4 and […]

Random Camera Haul (Thru June 2022)

Hope everyone is enjoying the summer and avoiding the terrible heatwave!  Just wanted to share some of the camera gear that I’ve gotten since earlier this year.  Part of the fun of photography is wondering about another camera or lens’ special ability–since they all have one! Some of this gear was free, and others cost […]

Friday Adventure – 2022-05-27

It was a fun day with my little/not so little anymore baby bear!  No real plan today, just left the house with an “old” Pentax K10D, an “ancient” Nikon D100 and a Sony A7.  Here’s what we did and shot on a day with really nice weather. The morning started off with an impromptu P.E. […]

Chattahoochee Nature Center Event Photos

Here are a few photos from the event I helped cover after the Johns Creek Intl Festival.  Pretty much like everyone else, if I haven’t been to a particular location for event photography work, I google to see the logistics of the place and what other folks have shot.  Not every event is the same […]

Fujifilm S5 Pro – Sample Photos

So I added another “old” camera to the lineup this past month, a Fujifilm S5 Pro!  I’d always wanted this camera since about 2006 or 2007 but I had a Nikon D200 at the time so this camera was always on the get it later when it’s cheap wish list.  Now that time has made […]

Arabia Mountain and Other Spots – 2022-03-27

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 […]

Prom! – 2022-03-26

The cherry blossoms were out in Braselton, but man was it windy (and chilly!) today.  Thanks to all the super nice and polite kids for wanting pictures today.  Ah to be young again.  At some point I’ll eventually remember everyone’s names! 🙂 It was fun seeing everyone! Also, stop growing up so fast!!

Monday Funday – 2022-03-21

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. 🙂  

First Day of Spring – 2022-03-20

Just some fun photos from the first “official” day of Spring down here in Georgia. Thanks to Chalita (@chalitanata) for always coming along for food+fun+thrifting.  I don’t think it can be stressed enough that one can see so many different multicultural communities here in metro Atlanta.  In a half day one can get great Thai […]

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 […]
