It's been a while

I can't believe it's been two years since I posted anything. A lot has happened since with me personally and professionally. I still have a job in advertising, my moonlighting as a photographer has been on a stand-still. Let's see, where should I begin. Oh yeah, I got a divorce, sold nearly all of my nikon equipment, now only shoot with a fuji x100 with an olympus om-d on the way. It's actually arriving today. Hopefully I'll post a lot more at a higher frequency.

Nikon D7000

It is coming! I placed an order on it, and can't wait for it soon enough. This is a camera aimed at consumers, but the Pro's and Semi pro's like myself will want it to get the jobs done.

I'm hoping it shows up before the next gig I have to shoot in early october.

Bing & RJ


This was a fairly large wedding I had to solo. Approximately 250 guests and all of them want their photos taken with the Bride and Groom. I got to field test the new 85mm 1.4 AFS G at this wedding and it didn't disappoint. I shot with pure confidence, knowing that my pictures will come out as sharp and accurate. The older D lens would have more misses, probably due to the slower AF motor making it less accurate. I was able to track people moving in and away from me, fairly easily.

85mm 1.4 AF-S G at a wedding


I shot my first wedding with it over the weekend. There's probably very little difference, optically between this and the old lens. Purple fringing is better muted, it seems sharper, and AF-S just rocks at tracking subjects.

I had with me the D3x with 24-70 for formals, and the 85 1.4G on my d700 for candids and low light work. Autofocus was accurate, quick and it really bit down to get optimal/critical sharpness, which was my main complain with the older lens. It was quick with autofocusing, but it wasn't very accurate. I yielded a lot of keepers with the new lens.

I'm currently post processing some 2500 images from the 12 hour shoot, and I'm just about done. Pics will be up soon.

This lens is apparently pretty hot, because it's back-ordered everywhere. I'd get mine here: Nikon 85mm f/1.4G AF-S NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLR

Zeiss 35mm f2 distagon for sale

Having recently re-acquired the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G, I no longer need this portable tank of a lens. Sharp optics wide open, beautiful bokeh at f2.0. This is the non cpu (NOT ZF.2) version where you'd have to enter the lens data yourself, in order for the camera to meter correctly. My tired old eyes needs auto-focus these days.
