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 […]

Springtime in Atlanta

Big thanks to Jenny and Vivian for coming out for a quick photoshoot on Saturday!  It wasn’t as hot and humid as it was on Thursday and the sunlight was diffused behind a bunch of clouds.  I wanted to use the Lunar New Year lanterns at Atlantic Station before they were taken down at the […]

Spring in Georgia – 2-23-24-2022

Tuesday morning was cold and rainy but that made for some nice photos.  Today though was crazy hot and it seems everything bloomed overnight.  So here’s what I got from my normal drives and walkabouts.  As you can see most of these spots are just simple non fancy places you can get to from the […]

Photo Hangout: Norcross Cherry Trees – 2022-02-21

Thanks to Claudia, Byung, and Jazz for coming out to take pictures with the flowering okame cherry trees in downtown Norcross.  The petals don’t last long so I’m definitely glad when I can get a shoot in during peak colors. Rain was predicted for this day so we only had about a one hour window.  […]

Sunday Funday – 2022-02-20

Sunday started off really cold but I wanted to take advantage of the morning light.  No real plan on this day, just head out of the house with random cameras that I don’t use often, and be a tourist in our own area. I had two frames left on the Fuji Instax wide and at […]

Spring in Georgia – 2022-02-15

It’s still a bit chilly for me, but the first trees that I normally use for photos bloomed late last week.  While I was out location scouting I remembered this time of year would be good to get product shots of my photo books and products in the natural environment that I shot the original […]

Spring in Georgia – 2022-02-12

Some photos with just one camera riding around Doraville and Chamblee on a Saturday.  Here’s hoping the cold weather is out of here for good.  These lovely pink trees are usually the first to bloom in our area, along with daffodils.  The sunset colors were very nice at the airport as well. Camera: Nikon D50 […]

Fuji vs Sigma vs Nikon Color w/ Angel’s Macarons ♥

Thanks to my little/not so little ♥Angel♥ for the homemade macarons!  Too pretty to eat so I thought it would be a good opportunity to do some product photography showing what you can get with a few of my cameras–the ones that I personally think produce the nicest starting color right out of camera.  The […]

Olympus Stylus Epic Zoom 170 Roll 1&2 w/ Fujifilm Superia 400

So here are some photos from two rolls of Fujifilm Superia 400 shot with my Olympus Stylus Zoom.  I got this camera from a friend years ago and it just sat on the shelf.  It’s funny how in the midst of a film shortage in 2022 I thought it would be neat to roll around […]

Photo Outing – 02-06-2022 – Caffeine and Octane and Dragon Dance

Sunday was no real plan, just stop by a few events, drive around and shoot some film. Was late to the monthly Caffeine and Octane car show, but there were a few unique cars left that were worthy of a few frames of precious film.  We also stopped by to see the Lion and Dragon […]

Fall in Georgia 2021 – Rolling Post

Hello everyone, I thought it would be neat to have a rolling post/feed of some of the random photos I’ve shot down here in Georgia this season.  Fall is an odd time here, it gets hot, then somewhat cold, then hot again, and then finally the leaves change.  Depending on where you live in metro […]

2021 Petit Le Mans – Fri Photo Blog

Motul Petit Le Mans – 2021-11-12 Fri Photo BlogMichelin Raceway Road Atlanta – Braselton, GA Hello everyone here are some of my photos from a lovely brisk morning at Road Atlanta for this year’s Petit Le Mans.  Similar to cars, there are just too many cameras and lenses to pick only one, so here’s what […]

Petit Le Mans Kickoff: Suwanee, GA – 11-09-2021

Road Atlanta had their Petit Le Mans Kickoff right in our backyard of Suwanee, so I headed there with my random gear.  It was good to try out the possible kit that I’m still deciding on for this weekend’s race.  I shot my normal Nikon 35/105mm combo, but also wanted to try out the Isco […]

Suwanee Classic Car Show – November 7, 2021

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.  […]

Happy Lunar New Year 2021

Happy Chinese/Viet/Lunar New Year everyone!  Here are some of my photos from last week’s festivities from a few of our local CFM/HK Supermarkets.  Please check them out for the best selection of food and groceries in metro Atlanta.  www.cityfarmers.market. I sure hope that by next year the big events and pageants will return again! 🙂

Drawing – 01-29-2021

I bought a pack of 24 colored pencils from Publix for $5 and thought I would do a quick drawing tonight.  (I hadn’t drawn with this media in a long time, and I couldn’t remember where my old Berol Verithins disappeared to.)  The checkout line was delayed a bit, a lady didn’t have enough in […]

Late Post: Fall in Georgia Colors

Last year in 2020 I did manage to take a lot of pictures.  There weren’t as many portrait sessions/hangouts that is pretty much my lifeblood, but all things considered I can’t complain about still having the freedom to even have photo walks.  The images were sparsely posted on FB, but most just ended up on […]

Sigma SD10 and SD15 “Review” and Photos (in 2021!)

Hello everyone! Around the holidays I added another tool to the fleet, an ancient Sigma SD10! This camera was announced sometime in 2003, and I lucked out because it came with 3 lenses, a flash, battery grip, and a hard case!  Plus the camera looked like it had barely been used!  So here’s what I’ve […]

Nikon 105mm 1.4E on F100 and Portra 160

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 […]
