Enchanted Christmas in Seattle at T-Mobile Park

Tonight, we ventured into Seattle, down to the Mariners baseball field (T-Mobile Park), to visit the Enchanted Christmas extravaganza. It’s an expensive event – for the five of us, with parking, plus skate rentals for the kids, it cost us $175! Even with the high cost, it was extremely crowded – elbow to elbow in many places ...

Tacoma Art Museum

My mother is in town visiting, and she’s never been to the local museum. It’s also the last week that the Tacoma Art Museum has the Simpsons exhibit. Being Christmas Eve day, the downtown area was mostly empty which made it an ideal time to head downtown. All of these photos were shot with the ...

Harry Potter Tea at British Bites

For low light, and I mean really low light – when you need autofocus, the Sony a7r III and 24mm f/1.4 GM are where you need to go. The lights were super dim, and the windows blocked out, but autofocus worked like a champ, and the touch screen is quite useful. While the Sony has ...

Tacoma Night Market at Alma Mater

During the cold, dark, and dreary Saturday nights of the late fall, there’s an evening market in Tacoma that’s been going on for many years now, but this is the first time we’ve had a chance to check it out. Food, drink, sweets, new and old -there’s ton stuff you didn’t know you could live ...

Nikon Z6 ProRes RAW Expectations vs Reality

This article is a work in progress. Keep checking for updates… The moment that Nikon announced that they would be bringing ProRes RAW to the camera, I was beyond excited. I already knew it had a great video sensor, and the possibility of being able to have photo RAW like editing in video sounds awesome. ...

Downtown Tacoma Holiday Haul Crawl

Tacoma’s downtown Christmas shopping bonanza was a big nothing, but we all had a great time. Tinkertopia had a two hour workshop for the kids, while Vanessa and I were able to go out and have a wonderful lunch at En Rama – of course, I had to bring along my camera. This was the second time I had ...

Do Not Buy the Sony a6600 for Vlogging

A terrible choice for serious vloggers – do not buy this camera if you intend to vlog.

Rode Lavalier Go Test – Is It Worth Buying?

I’m not sure I hear much of a difference between the regular Rode VideoMic GO and the Lavalier Go. Was it worth $79 and the trouble to deal with the lav? Leave a comment below.

Panasonic 24-70mm f2.8 Continuous Eye Autofocus 4K 24P Test on the S1R

Just got the new 24-70mm f/2.8, and I couldn’t wait to see how it works for video. Curious? Me too! Let’s find out together – check out the video.

Panasonic S1R + Lumix 50mm f1.4 Continuous Eye Autofocus Test – w/ Bad Hair and Acne

I hadn’t intended on making a video this weekend, but wanted to do a quick test after seeing the impressive autofocus of the S1H on Camera Conspiracies here on YouTube. What impressed me about watching the videos over there is that the Eye AF didn’t seem to pulse in and out like Panasonic’s Micro 4/3 ...

Fife Harvest Festival with Karate Edge

The annual Fife parade for the dojo – this time with a Nikon D850 and the new Tamron 35mm f/1.4. I’m quite impressed with this lens for the price. I wish I had a Canon 5DSR and 35mm f/1.4L II to compare it to. Photos are straight out of the camera with no editing.

Anya’s 8th Birthday

This was the first time that I’ve really shot anything important with the Nikon F to Z mount adapter. I used the continuous full time autofocus to search for faces and eyes. All shots were with the Nikon 28mm f/1.4 E lens at around f/2. I figured f/1.4 would be too shallow of depth of ...

Here’s a link to the demo version over at their website. Who isn’t on the lookout for a better and easier way to edit your photos with a ...

Adult and Elite Skillz Testing

It’s pretty awesome seeing these karate students level up! Everyone did a super great job today, and three students came off of their probation and earned their full Shodan ranking. Regarding the photos, these are straight out of camera JPEGs, ISO 3200, Sony a9, Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 GM, and custom white balances. Aperture ranged from ...

Basic Skillz Belt Rank Testing White, Yellow, and Gold Belts

No time to post process – shot hundreds of photos, culled, and posted to Facebook for all of the parents to see. Shot on the Sony a9 with 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens. I shot RAW+JPEG, but only used the JPEGs. The settings in camera were ISO 3200, multiple custom white balances, aperture f/2.8 – f/4, ...
