Sigma SD14 10 Year Recap/Review

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 […]

Fall in Georgia – Kodak Gold 400

Thanks to Robbie for developing this super old roll of Kodak Gold 400.  Think it was sitting in my F100 for at least 6 years (and might have expired well before then!).  My how time flies.  Below are samples of what I got! These are DSLR scans (D600 and 105mm Micro converted in Capture NX2), […]

Canon EOS RP Portraits

Here are some portraits with the Canon EOS RP in different situations.  Right now, it’s not an A camera for me.  It’s more of a third option.  For video it’s really nice though.  Again, I don’t have any native RF glass yet, I have to use the older EF lenses via the adapter.  While many […]

Nikon 105mm 1.4E Review

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 […]

Cosplay Portraits

Some of my favorite cosplay portraits from over the years: MomoCon, Dragon Con, Anime Weekend Atlanta, Cosplayers on Ice, etc!

Nikon Df “Review” and Sample Images

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.  […]

MomoCon 2014

Portraits from this year’s great event. Most of the images with my “alternative” gear!

Azaleas

Notes: Just a colorful shoot from a few weeks back at my parent’s temple in Habersham.  Luckily there was this spot of wild azaleas near the entrance that I used for all of the photos.  This “Lao Heritage Month(s)” just keeps on rolling.  Mola Softlight beauty dish and natural light.  Tried for the first time, […]

Murals

Just some spots around town, like the amazing 1970’s wall art behind the art store where I buy my fancy pens!
