A 30th Birthday Wishlist

It’s officially one day before my birthday, although now it’s RJ’s birthday, so happy birthday RJ! Anyway, in relation to my last blog, here’s a birthday wishlist for my 30th birthday. You’ll notice that obviously some of these are pretty much impossible to happen overnight unless I’ve been bestowed omnipotent powers, but hey that’s why it’s called a wishlist, right? This list is in no particular order. Health care reform that results in affordable health care for all. And by […]

Alpers-Merani Wedding

What an epic wedding!  This was my first wedding in awhile and I was anxious to see how well the D300/D200 combo would work out.  The D300 really shined, but I have to say that the D200 was really starting to show its age, especially with the high ISO noise.  Nevertheless, I think the photos still turned out quite well.  The Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 was the main workhorse throughout the day and truly proved its worth.  If/when I decide to […]

w00t for vertical grip!

My MB-D10 vertical grip came in today.  The camera already feels much more complete than without it.  Nikon definitely did well on the ergonomics of this new grip.  I’ll of course have a more detailed review later on, but until then, here’s a quick photo from my phone:

Independence Day 2009

The first test for my new D300 and Velbon tripod legs was the Independence Day fireworks over Lake Union. Eugene’s roof ended up being pretty much a perfect location, with a nice view of the Space Needle in the background.  Both the camera and tripod work flawlessly 🙂  Here’s a few selected photos: [smugmug url=”https://verdugo.smugmug.com/hack/feed.mg?Type=gallery&Data=8800354_vsnxA&format=rss200″ imagecount=”100″ start=”6″ num=”4″]
