Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden Federal Way

The rhododendron garden was open for free today to celebrate the blooming of their field of blue poppies. Apparently, it’s quite a difficult species to get to grow in our area, and so people were quite excited to see them. There was a long line to get in, but we only had to wait a ...

Mother’s Day with the Panasonic 70-200mm f/4.

After yesterday’s failed attempt using the 70-200mm f/4, I was determined to get some good shots. As I suspected, this lens is quite capable.

Sometimes an iPhone is Better

Today was my 43rd birthday. It was a great day! The girls wanted to go to the zoo and Chocolpolis – sounded good to me! I brought along the 70-200mm f/4 Panasonic lens and got some terrible shots. It was midday sun, dirty glass between a lot of the animals and myself, and very harsh ...

Wickenburg and the Palouse with the 50mm f/1.4 Panasonic lens.

The trip to Arizona was a whirlwind business trip, but then off to Pullman to visit family. While the S1R isn’t the most ideal travel camera, it is quickly becoming my favorite mirrorless camera to use. Also, loving the 50mm f/1.4 lens. Even though it’s really not my favorite focal length, this lens is certainly ...

“Scanning” Old Artwork with the Panasonic S1R and 50mm f/1.4

While visiting my mother, she has been saving some old sketches from her Aunt for well over 6 years now. The paper had become quite brittle, and most of the drawings had faded over time. We laid the sketches down on a cutting mat with a grid so I could line up / correct for ...

Panasonic 50mm f/1.4 Full Frame Lens First Shots at a Business Fair.

This was my first outing with new Panasonic 50mm f/1.4 lens. While the face detection autofocus isn’t the best out there, the lens is superb! It feels a little plasticy towards the front of the lens, but you can’t argue with the results. Most of these were shot at f/1.4.

Vanessa’s Birthday – with the Panasonic 50mm f/1.4

Creamy bokeh! I’m still learning my way around this lens and camera, but I haven’t been this excited about a 50mm since I owned an Otus. Looking back at that old post though ( https://bershatsky.com/2014/11/14/welcome-to-otusburg/ ) that Otus was pretty fantastic. However, this with autofocus and a new system are pretty stinking awesome! It’s also ...

Puyallup Spring Fair & Panasonic S1R and 24-105mm f/4

Even though the S1R is weather sealed, I used one of these: http://fotosharp.com/original_camera_rain_covers.html. It covered most of the camera, but not the lens when fully extended. Rain got on the extended parts of the lens and I was concerned as the zoomed lens retracted fearing that water would get trapped inside. Fortunately, everything was fine. ...
