Sony a9 and Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 GM Lens Review – When Shooting Karate Events

The karate school that I attend has over three hundred students. It’s a very busy school with classes every day of the week, belt tests quarterly (for those that have earned their stripes), and a couple of in house tournaments a year. With that many students, it takes a lot of volunteerism to help the ...

Fuji 8-16mm f/2.8 First Outing

I’ll be writing up a review of this lens in the future, but for now, here’s my initial outing with the lens. We headed to the Tacoma Art Museum and then Dorky’s (a video game arcade) today. Images were processed using Lightroom for iPad. The videos are straight out of the camera (Eterna mode) with ...

2019 Snowmageddon

It’s the snowpocalypse of the Pacific Northwest!

Atomos Ninja V, Sony a9, Philips Hue, and Zeiss Batis 40mm

Tonight, I’m discussing using the Atomos Ninja V, Sony a9, Philips Hue, and Zeiss Batis 40mm together.

Atomos Ninja V and Nikon Z 6 Audio Input Settings and Post Processing

This is a follow up from my last video. Previously, I made some errors in my audio setup with line level settings. After more research, I believe I have come up with a better setup. Also, in this video I share my audio compression settings to optimize the quality of the audio.

Atomos Ninja V with Nikon Z 6 Vlogging Setup

This is a follow up from my last video. Previously, I made some errors in my audio setup with line level settings. After more research, I believe I have come up with a better setup. Also, in this video I share my audio compression settings to optimize the quality of the audio.

Protzel’s Delicatessen – St. Louis

After a morning and afternoon of walking around St. Louis, it was time for my final tourist destination – a Kosher Deli. Beef tongue sandwich with deli mustard on rye? Yes, please! I’ll also have a pickled tomato with a celery flavored soda. Plus, some chopped liver and bagel chips to go. I almost forgot, ...

St. Louis Zoo

Seriously, who goes to an outdoor zoo on a freezing cold day? Nobody! There were probably less than forty people throughout the entire zoo that day. Why did I even go? It was just down the street from the museum, it had free admission, and people had raved about online. As far as zoos go, ...

St. Louis Art Museum

It was now Tuesday. One more day to play before attending classes and training. However, today was going to be colder than the day before. What to do as a tourist on a very cold day? The Art Museum! It’s easily the best museum that I’ve ever walked through. Amazingly, it’s free! They had a ...

Missouri Botanical Garden – St. Louis

Where else do you go on a cold winter day in St. Louis? An outdoor botanical garden of course! Today alone, my Fuji X-T3 and 23mm f/2 had already been rained on, now time for some cold weather. It was COLD outside – cold with a capital BRRRRR! Luckily, the rest of the time, I ...

Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis

This is a must see in St. Louis – just amazing! The light inside is quite dim, so I had to shoot with a slow shutter speed and high ISO. I really wish the Fuji X-T3 had in body image stabilization. Ideally, this would have been a great place for a tripod and to shoot ...

Gateway Arch Park – St Louis, MO

Upon leaving the Old Cathedral, you’re right near the Arch. Around the park, there’s a staircase that leads down to the waterfront. The shore/beach is unlike any other beach I’ve seen – no dirt or sand, but cobblestone. Before heading into and up the Arch, I took a stroll through the park. Too bad it ...

The Old Cathedral The Basilica Of Saint Louis, King Of France

After leaving the old Courthouse, I walked towards the Gateway Arch to The Old Cathedral – The Basilica Of Saint Louis, King Of France. Like the Old Courthouse, there were only a few people there. Again, the time to come here and visit, is on a cold Monday morning.

Old Courthouse – St Louis, MO

This past week, I was in St. Louis doing for some additional job training. I flew in a few days early though so I could have fun being a tourist. It was cold, but still it was a nice town to visit. Monday and Tuesday were my only days to explore, so I decided to ...

The 2018 iPad Pro is a Pain in the iOS – review, tips, tricks, workarounds, and recommended apps.

Why Even Get an iPad? That’s a great question, and one that I’m not even sure I have a good answer to. I guess it’s because it’s light weight, portable, convenient, compact, powerful, responsive, and extremely quick to navigate around and use – unlike a desktop OS. The newest 12.9” iPad Pro that I’m using ...
