Arabia Mountain and Other Spots – 2022-03-27

This is what it looks like this year on Arabia Mountain and other random spots around town.  Banh Mi on that flowering oasis spot seems to be a tradition, I hadn’t done that since ages ago with Christine. 🙂  Thanks to Byung and Claudia for taking my picture!  The flowers and desert plants truly are […]

Prom! – 2022-03-26

The cherry blossoms were out in Braselton, but man was it windy (and chilly!) today.  Thanks to all the super nice and polite kids for wanting pictures today.  Ah to be young again.  At some point I’ll eventually remember everyone’s names! 🙂 It was fun seeing everyone! Also, stop growing up so fast!!

Monday Funday – 2022-03-21

Today was a quick fun shoot with the blooming peach tree and a surprise trip to the carnival! Hard to believe I’ve known this superstar since she was a “baby potato!” Cotton Candy and Del Taco for dinner?! Truly the life of a star. 🙂  

First Day of Spring – 2022-03-20

Just some fun photos from the first “official” day of Spring down here in Georgia. Thanks to Chalita (@chalitanata) for always coming along for food+fun+thrifting.  I don’t think it can be stressed enough that one can see so many different multicultural communities here in metro Atlanta.  In a half day one can get great Thai […]

Spring Peach Trees

Every year it’s a little different in terms of blooming color here in Georgia.  I remember at the start of the pandemic the colors were really nice and vibrant with a purity in the air.  This year the cold snap kinda ruined some of the blossoms.  Here’s hoping the cold weather will finally be gone […]

Spring in Georgia – 2-23-24-2022

Tuesday morning was cold and rainy but that made for some nice photos.  Today though was crazy hot and it seems everything bloomed overnight.  So here’s what I got from my normal drives and walkabouts.  As you can see most of these spots are just simple non fancy places you can get to from the […]

Photo Hangout: Norcross Cherry Trees – 2022-02-21

Thanks to Claudia, Byung, and Jazz for coming out to take pictures with the flowering okame cherry trees in downtown Norcross.  The petals don’t last long so I’m definitely glad when I can get a shoot in during peak colors. Rain was predicted for this day so we only had about a one hour window.  […]

Sunday Funday – 2022-02-20

Sunday started off really cold but I wanted to take advantage of the morning light.  No real plan on this day, just head out of the house with random cameras that I don’t use often, and be a tourist in our own area. I had two frames left on the Fuji Instax wide and at […]

Spring in Georgia – 2022-02-15

It’s still a bit chilly for me, but the first trees that I normally use for photos bloomed late last week.  While I was out location scouting I remembered this time of year would be good to get product shots of my photo books and products in the natural environment that I shot the original […]

Spring in Georgia 2020

Well, with all that’s going on in the world right now, at least it’s looking really pretty out there… 🙃  

Atlanta in the Spring

Notes: Atlanta History Center, Swan House, Oakland Cemetery, Little Five Points Bonus: Fake Korean Video 😉  

Minjee

Model: Minjee MUA/Stylist: Nhi Notes:  I wonder if all the girls out there realize that most guys (including myself) prefer it when you ladies are just normal, without much makeup.  We like you in t-shirts and jeans, scars and all…  Granted, the first images are beauty shots for a specific portfolio purpose, but if it […]

Haiku

Notes:  Wanted to use the field again, and this is what we did before the wedding gig…maybe people will take my artwork and photos more seriously now…probably not… 🙂

Nikki

Notes: Fridays seem to be good for color.  Not too much gear for this one, the 24-105mm f/4 (which is not a bad lens when given enough light) and the Auto Sears 55mm f/1.4.  That and some walking around and exploring to get to the spots.  Actually shot a good amount of video on this […]

Màu Hồng

Notes:  There’s this tree on the side of the road I frequently drive on, and it sure is pretty every single spring.  Lots of gear for this spur of the moment shoot (for me at least), Nikon+Canon, Sigma IR, and different techniques as well, Nikon wireless CLS, radio triggered strobe, and the heat reflector you […]

“Your Photo Here”

Random Notes:  Took a field trip today, and like a little person, I did learn something…this will all seem so really random…maybe it’s because spring seems to finally be here, waking up everyone from the winter doldrums, and perhaps finally setting in motion the different themes and storylines for this year… Met and talked with […]

Spring (…almost)

Notes: Forgot how much I like the 70-200mm f/2.8 for portraits.  Used a good bit of everything in the arsenal for all these, and wouldn’t you know it, didn’t even touch the 85mm f/1.4.  Pix below from the Foveon Sigma.  If only the files look like that out of the camera.  There is hope though, […]
