Ashton Solecki Collage

Ashton Solecki with the Nikon 105mm f/1.4G

When my good friend Ashton asked me to take some new headshots for her, it was a great opportunity to rent and test out the Nikon 105mm f/1.4G. I had rented and tested out the Sigma 135mm f/1.8 a few months ago, and while the lens is really superb, it didn’t really quite have that “wow” factor for me. On the other hand, the Nikon 105mm was fantastic right away, and testing it out with Ashton really made it shine. […]

Armin Ausejo Photography 2017 Year in Review

2017 Year in Review

Life caught up to me quite a bit in 2017. I took the least number of photos this year than any other year since I started shooting professionally, with the vast majority of the photos revolving around friends and family. There were even entire months where I didn’t even shoot anything. That’s not a bad thing though, since some of my most cherished memories of late have come from this year alone. I just concentrated more on enjoying the moment […]

So, whenever he calls the banners, I always answer the call. Mackey’s been working on his Mazda 3 project car for a few years now, and just recently added […]

The Valley of Fire

The Valley of Fire

A couple weeks ago, I went to visit my best friend Sidnee down in Las Vegas. She had a great idea to go check out The Valley of Fire, just about an hour north of the city. We had a pretty packed day so we didn’t end up staying very long, but it was long enough to get some fantastic photos. The colors and textures were so awesome that I ended up experimenting with some alternate post processing styles for […]

Armin's WRX, EVA-00

Bugeye for Life

The old girl’s still got it! It’s been a long time since I’ve driven my WRX, “EVA-00” or “Eva” for short. She typically spends her days in my garage now that she’s been a few years retired now from the car show scene, but with my friend Kyle “KP” Pope in town bringing dry skies from Arizona, it was a perfect opportunity to take her out to stretch her legs. Plus, since I hadn’t really picked up my camera since […]
