This video was shot in ProRes RAW with a Canon EOS R5 using an Atomos Ninja V+ external recorder. Edited on an M1 Macbook Pro, and compressed using an older Nvidia 1080 Ti graphics card in an older Windows machine.

Seattle Aquarium

Took the girls to the Seattle Aquarium today. Pretty expensive for what it is. It was darn near $100 for the three of us just for the price of admission. Honestly, the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma is nicer, less crowded, more to see and do, and a better value. You could buy ...

100° In the Shade – Senior Prom (ish) Photo Shoot

2020 and 2021 have been interesting to say the least. No proms, no dances, no graduations – just surreal. This couple missed the opportunity to do any of those things, but still wanted a chance to dress up and have their photos taken. The problem? We’re in the midst of a ridiculous heat wave in ...

My Birthday – Space Needle and Chihuly Garden

Why you need 8K – a real world example (shot on a Canon EOS R5)

I was helping my karate instructor film a tutorial for his students, but didn’t have a steady cam, and wanted to zoom in close to the action. Using a15-35mm f/2.8 lens, I zoomed all the way out, shot at f/2.8, and digitally cropped, panned, and zoomed the image. Is it the best effect ever? No, ...

Advanced Color Grading w/ LOG in LumaFusion Using a New App Called “Video LUT Editor” – 4K HQ Canon EOS R5

This morning, I was searching the web for tips on color grading LOG footage in LumaFusion. I ended up finding a video about an app call “Video LUT Editor.” It looked promising, so I contacted the developer about doing a review. They were happy to give me a code to download it for review purposes. ...

Nadia’s 13th Birthday Weekend

Weird times – weird birthday parties. We did our best to make Nadia’s 13th memorable. Due to crowd restrictions, social distancing, etc., we were only able to invite one friend. Still, we all had a good time. Day 1, we went out to high tea – the first three shots are with the D850 and ...

22nd Wedding Anniversary in Tacoma

The plan was to go out to the museum and then out to lunch (without the kids) downtown, but we were only able to do the museum since the restaurant wasn’t seating customers – yes, we checked the website. Fortunately, we were able to eat out at another restaurant that day. Still, we had a ...

High Rock Lookout

While a fairly short trail at 3.1 miles (round trip), it’s a bit steep at 1,300 feet in elevation gain. Eric, has done this hike many a time – even at night, but this was my first time. There’s nothing too interesting photographically until you’re near the top, then there’s a beautiful view of Mt. ...

Crystal Mountain Trail

This was the first time that we’ve been up to Crystal Mountain. It was a bit expensive to ride the gondola up, but worth doing once. I figured it would be easier to hike down the almost six miles than to hike up it, but it was still a nice workout. It was a hike ...

My Good Friend Ronald Took Us Fishing!

The girls have been asking me to take them fishing for quite some time. Neither Vanessa or I know the the first thing about fishing, we don’t have a boat, and don’t own any gear. However, our friend Ronald not only is an avid fisherman, but has access to a boat too! I asked if ...

Fort Casey and Coupeville

This was our last day on Whidbey Island, so of course we had to check out the Fort. The kids haven’t been there before (I think my oldest had when she was much younger), and had a blast running around the different rooms and exploring. Of course the beach on the other side of the ...

Ebey’s Landing Bluff Trail – Whidbey Island

It was supposed to be an overcast and cool day, but it was sunny and toasty! We packed barely enough water, and no sunscreen. Needless to say, we all got burnt – I’m typing this post retroactively about five days after the hike, and my neck is still red. That being said, beautiful scenery though. ...

Whidbey Island – EOS R5 First Test Shots

Arrived in Coupeville this afternoon, unpacked, had to deal with some problems at the AirBnB we rented (ants, no screens, air conditioner not working, etc.), ate dinner, and went to the beach. All of these photos are JPEGs straight out of the camera and downsized for this site. The autofocus capabilities of this camera put ...
