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 […]

University Street Fair and Gasworks Park

Last Sunday the 22nd was the University Street Fair, and my friends and I decided go to out and shoot some street photography. I hadn’t done any dedicated street photography for some time now, so it was a welcome change to most of the other types of things I’ve been shooting lately. I only brought my Nikkor 50mm ƒ1.4 and 85mm ƒ1.8 with my D700 and quite honestly, I didn’t miss the zoom at all. There were plenty of things […]

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 […]

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, […]

Houglum-Alcantara Wedding

My cousin Liezl got married to her long-time boyfriend and I was able to make the wedding on New Year’s Eve, despite the fact that I was originally supposed to be out of town! I wasn’t the hired photographer for this wedding, so I was able to do a little experimentation with lens choices and post-processing. Please let me know what you think after you follow this link on my ArminWeddings.com website for more photos: http://www.arminweddings.com/2011/01/houglum-alcantara-wedding/
