Big Images and Small Cameras in the City

September 8, 2014 | 2 comments

I’m not sure I need too many reminders about why I have enjoyed the switch to a Fuji system so much. I have outlined many of the reasons in previous posts, and now I find myself in Brooklyn to shoot a wedding, and I am reminded once again of why I wax so poetic about […]

More Thoughts on the Fuji X-E1

June 27, 2014 | 11 comments

A little while ago, I spent some quality time comparing the Fuji X-E1 to the newer X-E2. I tried to give an honest appraisal of both cameras, pointing out where the X-E2 had leapt forward, and where it still fell short. In that comparison, I praised the X-E1 for its excellent value, image quality, and […]

What’s in My Bag? 9th Street Derby, Ep. III

March 29, 2014 | No comments yet

For the third year running, I will be spectating and photographing Durham’s Ninth Street Derby, a modern reincarnation of a hallowed classic, the Wellspring Criterium. In 2012, I had no idea what to expect, and showed up with a Canon 5D, a Canon 1DmkIII, and probably my three zooms (16-35 f/2.8L, 24-70 f/2.8L, and 70-200 […]

Fujinon 56 f/1.2 First Impressions: Bokeh with a Side of Bokeh!

March 13, 2014 | One comment

After a two-month long post-pre-order wait, I finally have my Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R… I have barely had time to shoot with it, and am looking forward to a headshot session tomorrow morning and then a wedding next week when I’ll really get to put it through its paces. As someone who previously owned […]

Atlanta and the Georgia Aquarium

March 3, 2014 | No comments yet

Last Thursday, I loaded up our bags into the trunk of our trusty Honda Fit and waited for Hanna to get home from work. Later that afternoon, we were off on a roadtrip to Atlanta, primarily to visit the Georgia Aquarium. Before leaving, I posted about what I was going to take, camera gear-wise. Though […]

What’s In My Bag: Atlanta Bound

February 26, 2014 | No comments yet

It’s been a pretty quiet couple of weeks in my photography world, and I’m off to Atlanta with my family tomorrow, to spend a weekend exploring the Georgia Aquarium, Underground Atlanta, the Legoland Discovery Center and to generally explore another notable Southern city. I figured I’d take a quick minute to do a What’s in […]

Southern Snowpocalypse with the Fuji X-E2

February 13, 2014 | No comments yet

As you have no doubt seen by now, North Carolina is muddling through a winter storm that is dropping snow, sleet, and freezing rain on us, and bringing everything to a complete standstill. Whether you think it’s the apocalypse or laughable, it is rare weather here and presents the opportunity to (finally) photograph in some […]

Fall in the Bull City, Revisited

February 4, 2014 | No comments yet

If life is about the journey and not the destination, so too is photography a lot of the time. You go out, you take photos, you come home. Sometimes you ingest them into your computer and edit them, and sometimes they just sit there on your hard drive, waiting to be processed. A new project […]

Oh Snap! Technology in Fast Forward!

January 29, 2014 | No comments yet

The other day, I was talking with someone much younger than myself about the movement of technology. I told them about my life before cell phones, the internet, and color computer monitors. I reminisced about taking a huge sleeve of cassettes with me on field trips, enough music to fill maybe 2% of my iPhone […]

All Right, Mister DeMille…

January 16, 2014 | No comments yet

Back when I was shooting my Canon kit, I never owned a macro lens because I never had much need for one. I had the occasional need to photograph something close up at a wedding or just for fun, but I had extension tubes and my trusty, close focusing 24-70 f/2.8L, which could, in most […]
