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 […]
Talento Latino Modeling SchoolUnique Fashion Show 2020 – 10th AnniversaryDecember 20, 2020 | La Mansion Event Hall | Chamblee, GA Thanks to everyone who posed for pictures! 🙂 These are a few images that caught my eye. More to come in the following post! Event Photos: Boon Vong
Hi everyone! I bought one of the cameras I dreamed about way back in the day…for only $18!! These days folks make fun of you for having even a 3 year old phone, so it was a nice challenge to use a digital camera from 2002! Here are some of the pictures I got with […]
Well, with all that’s going on in the world right now, at least it’s looking really pretty out there… 🙃
Here are the actual images shot with the combo pictured above: Totally unrelated to the above, but here are some examples from figure drawing in Alpharetta the other night (also shot with the 35mm on the RP). I’m really out of practice, and jumped into drawing without even holding a piece of charcoal for like […]
Just a quick and short post. I ordered a Gutty Nikon G lens to Canon RF adapter the other day from Amazon. It’s pretty good for less than $20! The build quality is very sturdy and feels much more expensive than the low price. In the past ten+ years I’ve used several mechanical D lens […]
Saturday December 7, 2019 So we got up early on Saturday and drove to New Orleans, which is about 3 hours from Pensacola. On the way off I-10 is this humongous gas station called Buc-Cee’s! Their little beaver mascot is on everything. My breakfast, Naked Mango juice and chicken salad in a croissant, which was […]
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 […]
Bonus Black and White Photos from the Sigma Foveon sensor:
Hi there everyone! Apparently there’s this new thing called Instagram. 😉 Thanks to @lawrsonpinson for organizing and hosting. Thanks to models/bubble tea/dance partners Chalita – @chalitanata and Rachel – @rachelmarchman for the invite, and also breaking character and having fun photos as usual. Also thanks to Brittany – @justbeburke, I really liked the images we […]

Faces of TEA Walk 2019 Together Empowering Asian Americanswww.teawalk.org Hosted and Organized by CPACSCenter for Pan Asian Community Services, Doraville, GA This was my 11th(?) year covering or just stopping by the event. I couldn’t stay the whole time, so this year I decided to just capture faces and portraits of my diverse community here […]
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!
Atlanta, GA | September 1, 2018 | Another fun year at one of Atlanta’s best traditions–the Annual Dragon Con Parade! Where you can celebrate all sorts of fandom!
Event Coverage of the 2018 Atlanta Dragon Boat Festival, held annually after Labor Day in Gainesville, GA. Please join us next year!
Nikon 105mm 1.4E Review So I finally added the Nikon 105mm 1.4 to my portrait kit. I’d been using the Nikon 85mm 1.4D and 105mm 2.8 Micro VR for years now, but decided that this modern lens (introduced in summer 2016) is another magical lens in the Nikkor lineup. After a few test shoots with […]
Lovely day for a walk and picnic on Arabia Mountain. This time of year the diamorpha smallii are in bloom. These tough and fleshy plants with the red leaves grow in the shallow sandy soil. In order to sound smart, I copied that from the information sign that you pass on the way up the […]
I wanted this camera since Nikon announced it back in late 2013. Its high price and quirky ergonomics was definitely polarizing amongst internet photographers back then. For me though, I shoot so many camera brands, makes, and models, that at the end of the day I see every tool as having some value or strength. […]
Some portraits from a brief visit on Sunday. Thanks to everyone for posing!
Trying out my “free” lens on the D600. The 17-55mm 2.8 DX is a lens for the smaller sensor cameras, but I thought I would use it without enabling the crop mode.
Just my thoughts and opinions on the newest camera to the fleet, Nikon’s Full Frame FX format D600.
I often wonder if all of my Lao New Year photos are actually doing more harm than good. Because I don’t necessarily post images of what truly happens, when outsiders go to the temple/community center/fairgrounds, they might be in for a shock. There are many things in the Lao community that I don’t agree with, […]
Mounting an 85mm on the J1 with simple mechanical adapters. It works! 🙂
Nikon J1 and Cosmicar 25mm f/1.8 Television Lens for some unique color results.
Random photo hangout with the Nikon 1 J1. Comparisons with other cameras with different sensor sizes.
Fun Shootout in Atlanta’s Historic Oakland Cemetery, a place more like a flower and sculpture garden.
First thoughts and pictures from the new Nikon mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, the J1.
Notes: Latest addition to the fleet (although about 10 years late to the party!), the Nikon F100. Will shoot black and white film for the upcoming gigs this month.
