I really like this super light kit for wandering around. Once you stop considering cameras for situations where they might struggle in professional/work settings they are all charming in their own way. If the weak battery goes out on a chilly early morning walk, no big deal, just admire the falling leaves and sing along […]
Deutsche Klassic Car Show 2023 October 28, 2023 | Norcross, GA Very nice light early in the morning for the German car show in Norcross. Shot with Fujifilm, Canon and Sony today.
State of the leaves in our area on 10.24.2023. This fall is different (as usual). Most of the leaves are dull brown before the eventual bigger rush of color, but the wind and impending freezing temperatures will probably affect that too. Still though, very nice around town.
So I finally bought a native Fuji lens for my X-E1, a used 16-50mm XC kit lens. Probably the cheapest lens that Fuji makes, and you know, it’s not that bad. Especially not for the price on the used market. I think it’s great because its so light and the footprint in the inventory slot […]
With all the buzz around the new Nikon Z 135mm f/1.8 Plena, I thought I’d exercise some self control and instead tinker with my existing “free” combos. Here are some sample portraits with the Nikon 105mm 1.4E on the Fuji GFX 50S. It’s mounted with a simple dummy adapter, the one I use for the […]
Here are some photos of the random combos I’ve put together with the GFX and F mount lenses. The first is a Tokina 500mm f/8 lens. (Thanks Robbie for gifting me this lens a few years ago) It turns into a 400mm and it’s not that bad if you avoid bright highlights in the background. […]
I had no idea there was a hot air balloon festival in “nearby” Anderson, South Carolina! Very cool small town feel on an area of land almost as big as Piedmont Park. The mini petting zoo and unicorn balloon were definitely the highlights. These are photos from a short stay on a Friday. The festival […]
Hello everyone I added a new tool to the fleet the other day, a medium format Fujifilm GFX 50S. For some the sensor size would be more aptly described as a Full Frame+, but this digital photography thing has been changing the status quo for quite some now. I remember back in the day about […]
Thanks to Chalita and her dad for randomly stopping by the other day! Here are some photos from a somewhat spontaneous mini adventure. The rainbow was definitely unplanned, but for Georgia in the summer, it always has to shower unexpectedly somewhere. Stepped out of the house with 3 cameras, and 3 different lenses. Nikon D610 […]
Thanks to Vivian and Sean for hanging out on Saturday. It was the only overcast day in between some rainy ones in late April, but I think we got some good results! Congrats to Vivian for finding an X100V! I remember being obsessed in searching for the original one back in 2011?! If you look, […]
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 […]
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 […]
Thanks to Tram for wanting photos the other week! It’s so nice to have a photogenic model that is also super at doing hair and makeup! 😉 This was also a good opportunity to test some of the gear collecting dust on the shelf before I settled on one for the whole shoot. The grid […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
I’m still waiting for my other prints, but here’s what came in the other day: a mousepad, an 8×10″ puzzle and 50 free prints. (It seems the drawback for Sam’s Club Free Shipping on all photo print items is that I have to wait a very long time. 7-14 business days is a bit frustrating […]
*I don’t think these are available anymore!* Sam’s Club (Fujifilm) 8×8″ Lay Flat Photo Book \ Photo: Nikon Df Neutral Settings Hello everyone, I got these in the other day, 8×8″ Lay Flat Premium Photo Books from Sam’s Club. These are essentially smaller more portable versions of the 12×12″ books that I order through Costco. […]
Hello everyone, these came in yesterday, a new product offered by Sam’s club: 4×6″ Lay Flat Mini Photo Books starting at $6.86! I designed a few so I could get a feel of the interface and of course see how the print quality is. Here are some of my initial thoughts. Notes: Very nice sturdy […]
As y’all know from my past posts, I’m a big fan of the 12×12″ Costco photobooks. Since I’m sitting at home all day everyday in 2020 thus far, I’ve occupied my time organizing my various visual work (i.e. digital photo hoarding) ;). I thought it would be nice to make some calendars, just to see […]
Happy New Year everyone! I know calendar switches don’t magically turn our fortunes or sorrows around, but I do wish the best for everyone out there. Thanks for following along for 10+ years now! I would like to thank FujiFilm for supplying me two 16×20″ metal prints for review. It’s a bit hard to write […]
My thoughts on the affordable 12×12 inch lay flat photo books that you can create/order through Costco! Best part is that they are actually printed at Fufjifilm USA!
