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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Lee’s Ducati 1299 Panigale S

My friend Lee picked up a new Ducati motorcycle, but when he contacted me to take some shots of it, I wasn’t prepared for the awesomeness that I would soon behold. I’m admittedly Jon Snow when it comes to motorcycles (as in, “You know nothing, Jon Snow”), so learning all the details about the bike completely blew me away. We spent a couple hours taking some photos on the busiest gravel road in Seattle city limits with his friend Zach […]

The Quad 2015

It’s become a yearly tradition for me to go to the University of Washington’s Quad and take photos of the cherry blossoms just as Spring starts. Unfortunately, the weather hasn’t been the greatest lately, so my original plans to go as soon as they hit full bloom fell through. A week later, I finally made it out to UW at sunrise, but the cherry blossoms were already starting to fade away. Nevertheless, I was still able to get some great […]
