Erica Leong Subie Girls Calendar 2012

Subie Girls Calendar Winner!

First off, a big congratulations to Erica for making into the 2012 SubieGirls.com Calendar! I took these photos a few weeks ago, but Erica didn’t want me to publish them until the competition was over. Based on the number of forum posts she had on their forum, Erica was able to submit 2 photos and then the top 12 winners would be decided by forum voters. The photo above was the eventual winner that she picked, but we did take […]

Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G and Nikkor 135mm f/2D Review

Since I started using my Nikon D700 last November, I hadn’t really changed my line-up of lenses.  My Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D and Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D felt right at home with the new full frame sensor, and the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G satisfied my everyday walk around lens requirement, but none of these lenses really offered anything new to me.  On top of that, my first generation Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VR was proven to have some issues with the new FX format […]

Erica at Discovery Park

To help me decide on some possible future lens purchases, I went to BorrowLenses.com to rent the Nikkor 135mm ƒ2 and Nikkor 24mm ƒ1.4.  I couldn’t properly test these lenses of course without a good subject, so I got in touch with Erica once again to help me out.  She happily obliged and this time around, we both wanted to go with something a bit more stylish than our previous shoots.  We ended up going to Seattle’s Discovery Park and […]

PROPS!, Vitamin D and International Mo at Rock Paper Scissors

Part 2 of the PROPS! shoot (see here for Part 1) was a concert at Rock Paper Scissors in Seattle, which also featured Vitamin D and International Mo.  The venue was packed with people, which made it a little difficult to move around, but I was still able to get some great shots.  All photos were taken with my 24-70mm ƒ2.8 lens on my D700.  Big thanks again to Berto from Lake City Legends for the hookup!  Also, be sure […]

PROPS! Behind the Scenes Video Shoot

I arrived back from The Philippines (many photos coming soon!) on Monday the 21st after three weeks of vacation, and immediately Berto from Lake City Legends hooked it up with a behind the scenes video shoot for PROPS! on the 25th and his concert the next day.  The video shoot took place at the Century Ballroom on Seattle’s Capitol Hill, which worked perfectly for the Victorian theme they were going for in this video. I won’t go into the concept, […]
