Kaylee Alana at Coulon Park

After a couple rain/weather delays, Kaylee and I were finally able to go do some fashion photography on a beautiful summer’s day at Renton’s Coulon Park.  With plenty of assistance from Erica May, Kaylee and I were able to take photos of her in three different outfits, timing it perfectly to end our shoot at sunset.  I took this opportunity to test out my new Nikkor 70-200mm ƒ2.8 VR-II for some portraits, then switched over to the trusty 24-70mm ƒ2.8 […]

Blue Scholars VIP Party

Blue Scholars Kickstarter VIP Party

Blue Scholars are undoubtedly my favorite hip-hop artists.  With roots from the University of Washington and made up of just “one DJ and one MC, ” they’ve always made music that speaks to me, not just through the beats and lyrics, but also through the connection I have as a Filipino American and University of Washington alumnus.  To raise money for their latest album, “Cinemetropolis,” they used Kickstarter to “sign a record deal with the people.”  I gladly pledged money […]

Seattle at Night from Kerry Park

Seattle Skyline at Night

It’s been three and a half years since I went out to take photos of Seattle at night, and since my friend Pauline really wanted to take photos and learn more about using her DSLR, we decided to take advantage of the dry and warm Seattle weather. We started at Kerry Park and ended up on the Jose Rizal Bridge for the panorama below. I started with the 24-70mm at Kerry Park, but decided to go with the 85mm instead […]

Brianna Shirley at Magnuson Park

Brianna Shirley at Magnuson Park

Four years ago, I took Brianna’s senior portraits and much to my surprise, she hit me up randomly for some new photos. Apparently, she had been using her old photos all this time and never had a chance to get some new ones done. The weather turned out to be absolutely gorgeous here in Seattle this past weekend, so we met up for a quick photoshoot. I switched between my 24-70mm and 85mm the whole time, and although the photos […]

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 […]
