On Sunday I brought along my Sigma SD15 as one of my bonus cameras. Just to get some field time with it and hopefully decent raw files that can be used for comparisons or editing “fun.” I’ve obviously written about these unique cameras on my site many times, but here’s an actual attempt at using […]
So here are my “bonus” photos, a few shots with my Sigma SD14 and SD15. The SD14 was in infrared mode and the SD15 was normal color with a really cheap 70-300mm. It was definitely a challenge shooting these slow cameras/lenses alongside the normal easy Canon setup I had on Sunday. Again, I like ALL […]
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 […]
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 […]
I gathered some random raw files I shot last year from my Sigma cameras and did some black and white conversions. Some from color, and some from infrared. You lose a bit of the drama in converting the near IR photos, but I mostly wanted to see if it’s unique enough to be doing more […]
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. […]
It’s been a cold and cloudy winter down here in Georgia, but that’s pretty normal. With the lack of events happening I figured now would be a good time to get out there and try to capture some different landmarks and views around Atlanta. I’ve always said it’s good to be a tourist in your […]
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 […]
Big thanks to Sigma Japan for listing me next to other talented creatives that use Sigma cameras and lenses! (I screen captured the Japanese language one because it looks so cool!) 🙂 Here’s the link to the english version: https://www.sigma-sein.com/en/neighbors/BoonVong/
Thursday December 5, 2019 Late Autumn mornings in Georgia are somewhat brisk with pretty, but short sunrises. This is from my backyard. We left around 8:30am Atlanta time. Both the NCR and CODA buildings are quite nice, I’m sure they’ll film some movies there one day. We made it to Pensacola, FL around 3:30 our […]
It’s been a weird year for Fall color down here in Georgia in 2019. First the cold snap turned all the leaves brown. Last year, my yellow Japanese Maple and red Japanese Maple made it into many photos. This year, they pretty much gave up. This morning, 11-23-19, Midtown Atlanta was looking pretty nice in […]
Gosh, it’s been ten years since Seng Merrill loaned me her Sigma SD14 and a couple of lenses. I’d like to thank her for the faith in a young artist/photographer, and of course thank her late husband Dick Merrill for being one of the architects of the unique Foveon sensor design. I’ve had great fun […]
Duluth Fall Festival | (Always the Last weekend in September!) | September 28, 2019 It has been a long hot summer down here in Georgia, and pretty much everywhere else too it seems. Let’s hope the cool temperatures predicted for next week finally usher in Autumn, perhaps my most favorite season. For this Saturday evening […]
Portraits from this year’s great event. Most of the images with my “alternative” gear!
Fun Shootout in Atlanta’s Historic Oakland Cemetery, a place more like a flower and sculpture garden.
Technical Notes: Got a hang somewhat of processing the SD14 RAW files for false color infrared photos. All these random images are just from my photo walks or bike rides through New Orleans with the Sigma sans IR filter, which is turning out to be a heck of a little “ghost cam.” Again, the quirks […]
