St. George is definitely a great city to stop by and explore. There’s a free botanical garden with amazing colorful desert plants, and a high vantage point overlooking the city. There’s Utah Tech, a lovely white church, AND an Asian grocery store/restaurant! They have bamboo and pork buns too, along with the normal assortment of […]
It was time to say goodbye to Tropic and its awesome hoodie weather, with another quick morning photo walk. Sunrise wasn’t as nice as yesterday, but the light right afterwards was pretty amazing. Tropic to Zion is only like less than an hour, but a worthy detour is the town of Kanab, near the Arizona […]
The night before actually had some moisture in the air, so it made for a very nice sunrise in Tropic. Just like back home, photo worthy sunrises and sunsets usually come after some type of weather. I startled this little black cat as I was filming in the morning. I guess its home was nestled […]
The weather in Tropic this morning was once again cool and refreshing. In the back of the cabin area is a barn for chickens and they are pretty much the alarm clock. The whole time I couldn’t help but find parallels to this place and Samneua Laos. The first stop of the day was Mossy […]
One of the best things about the town of Tropic Utah is the weather. In June it was an amazing 58 degrees in the morning and a high of about 74 degrees when we were there. All thanks to the high elevation of 6,000+ ft. There’s a lot of wind and tons of UV light […]
Hello everyone here’s the first post of my trip out to lovely/lonely Utah. It was definitely a landscape photographer’s dream. I didn’t pack too much in terms of gear, I only brought along a Fuji X100, Sony A7 and 3 lenses, and a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera (original one), and of course my iPhone […]
Hello everyone, here are some bonus photos from my non standard gear loadout at LNY this past Sunday. One of the oddball cameras I brought was the Ricoh Theta 360° camera. Thanks to Lyela for getting some 360 shots from atop the nang songkarn float for a different pov that most of us will never […]
Even with the pollen I thought it would be fun to walk up Yonah Mountain. When we got to the top, it started hailing, which was actually refreshing since the forest was a bit warm in the sun and all the bugs were out in full force.
Street Photography from the Saturday and Sunday before Mardi Gras 2012. Fujifilm X100 to keep it light and simple. …However this little Fuji has been exhibiting the “sticky aperture blade” problem for quite some time now. Erratic exposures caused by the lens not being able to stop down correctly. Fujifilm USA, I hope this can be fixed for the cost of shipping only… 🙁
Landscapes around town, with a Nikon J1 and Fuji X100. Great lightweight cameras for walking around, and any imaging device can get pretty pictures if the light is right. All these photos taken early in the morning and brisk, about 36 degrees. The little J1’s high image quality doesn’t surprise me at all. Too many […]
Random photo hangout with the Nikon 1 J1. Comparisons with other cameras with different sensor sizes.
Fuji X100 and Nik Software Snapseed
After acquiring new gear, I like to take my own “product shots.” This is the latest addition to the fleet, the Fujifilm X100. Even I get tired of all the clackety clacking that my various cameras make. It’s refreshing to use a large sensor camera with a good lens, and whisper quiet shutter.
