Call me a techie or nerd, I love playing with new gadgets. I’ve been really impressed with what #sony has done with their #camera line up. The #a7 is an impressive package. Too bad they didn’t have any Zeiss lenses to play with.

Trying out #hyperlapse on the #aquarium and I dig it. #fish #animals

Updating to new firmwares. I like how the D90 is still getting updates. Brings life to my old workhorse. If you have a Nikon camera go see if there are updates for it.

A Magical Moment

I recently found myself missing Disney and started going through my archives browsing for photos to edit again. I went through and found a few to touch up, but I ended up gravitating to my favorite image. 



I’ve been to Epcot a countless number of times and never have come across a moment like this. I was just passing through while on my way to Japan for dinner. They were doing their usual poses,nothing really out the norm. Then Aladdin planted a kiss right on Jasmine’s cheek! Talk about some serious fan service! It was truly magical, something that embodies what Disney is all about. The sad thing is that something like this may never happen again. Since Jasmine and Aladdin have been moved indoors. It’s sad that they were moved inside, I always enjoyed seeing the characters while walking through the countries.

Since I’m sorta on break from the camera. I’ve been checking out other types of photography. I found myself gravitating to one particular type, surf photography. Something about it draws me in. It’s part nature and part sport. It blows my mind. You have to tread water, holding the camera and get pounded by waves. Not only that you are right in the middle of the action. Props to those guys!

I need to start browsing my collection of photo books again. I’ve been spending time re-editing stuff from my archives. Trying new stuff on old photos. I should’ve been working on the website. I have to finish up some unposted blogs. Lately there hasn’t been enough hours in a day…

Good night world!

Taking a small break from behind the camera. I’ll be starting a new job soon and it’s going to change my schedule. But my break won’t be for too long, another drift event is around the corner. I need to redeem myself for last time.

Also need to get back to my blog, been neglecting that again. Gees that is starting to sound like a broken record.

A reoccurring scene on my desk. #camera, #lenses and #sunglasses sprawled all over. Sometimes I wonder why I even bother putting it up. It all ends up back on the desk anyways.  #nikon #dslr #rayban
Changing tides?

I have a job interview Friday morning and I’m freaking out. I sort of have an inside connect, but this is still scary.

Change always freaks me out but this is a much needed one. One thing I’m going to miss about my current job, is being able to flex my creative muscles. I was able to do some photography and work on marketing projects.

Fingers crossed things work out for me. I’m scared yet excited for what the future holds. I still holding on to the dream of doing just photography for a living.

Haven’t posted an update of the #aquarium lately. I’ve added more #seiryustones to the #aquascaping and added a school of #dwarfpencilfish. #animal #plantedaquarium #fish
Went to a Sunday drive and caught a movie. Nice day to stretch the legs. Busy weekend, not looking forward to go back on the grind. #acura #rsx #dc5 #enkei

Just because you’re a moderator for a group doesn’t mean you have to be an asshat.

Votes are in

2 votes for the 35 and 1 vote for “why not both”.

"Why not both", because money doesn’t grow on trees lol. Both would be nice but not really an option. Appreciate the input Mike.

Now I have to figure out between the Nikon or the Sigma 35mm.

From what I gathered, the Sigma is newly designed, cheaper, sharper. But lacks weather seals. It’s heavy and a tad bit longer.

The Nikon is slightly less weight, “better” bokeh (subjective) and weather sealed. Downside is that the lens design is a few years older than Sigma and the price tag. I could almost buy two sigmas for the price of one Nikon.

Tallying things up it looks like the Sigma wins? But in the back of my mind, I have my concerns with build quality. I’ve rented one and worked great, had a contact that didn’t like their copy. Ended up returning it for a canon version.

At the price point of the Nikon 35mm, I could get the 24-70 or the legendary 14-24(I don’t shoot landscapes, just throwing it out there). Multiple focal lengths in a single package. Primes are such a wonderful thing though. So much to think about.

Gees,talk about some analysis paralysis! Good thing I’m no rush for this.

35mm f1.4 or 24-70mm f2.8?
