Love Letter to the Nikkor 300mm f/4E PF ED VR

Love Letter to the Nikkor 300mm f/4E PF ED VR

All photographers have favorite lenses, and more often than not, these lenses are usually pretty easy to guess. A fast prime like an 85mm or 35mm f/1.4 is usually among them, or some might stick with the “nifty-fifty” 50mm f/1.8, while others might pick one of the “holy trinity” of f/2.8 zoom lenses in the 14-24mm, 24-70mm, or 70-200mm ranges.

The colors and textures were so awesome that I ended up experimenting with some alternate post processing styles for […]

Formula DRIFT Seattle 2015

Formula DRIFT weekend at Evergreen Speedway is one of my favorite weekends of the year. Our coverage of this year’s event on NWMotiv.com is truly exceptional, but I wanted to share my own personal favorite photos here. I also rented the new Nikon 300mm f/4 PF VR lens for the weekend, which performed even better than I was expecting. Very light weight, but incredibly sharp, I’m definitely considering adding it to my collection of lenses. Most of my photos during […]
