The East Coast Family

No, I’m not talking about “Boyz II Men, ABC, and BBD” here 🙂  Last month, a bunch of my relatives from my mom’s side of the family visited us from the east of the Mississippi as they went on a cruise up to Alaska.  They weren’t able to stay in Seattle very long, so I made it a point to take a bunch of photos of them during their short stay.  Most of these photos were taken at my uncle’s house in Mukilteo, mostly with my Nikkor 85mm ƒ1.8 and Nikkor 50mm ƒ1.4.  The 85mm once again proved to be my favorite lens in my collection, and this very informal setting allowed me to play around a little bit.  I also used this set to test out some new Lightroom presets.  My cousin, Manong Tommy, is quite the guitar and harmonica player, and he was a perfect subject for the Lightroom preset testing.  Enjoy!

  1. Armin,
    Very professional photos! I could learn from you! Since college I was a camera buff. I started with aPentax single lens reflex(SLR) witha 55 mm lens and when I came to the States, I was able to afford extra lenses (wide angle and telephoto). I used to have a 35-200 Takumar.
    Today, I just settled with a digital Sony and Olympus. I still dream to own more expensive equiptments like your (Nikon w/ Nikkor lenses and get back to my favorite portrait photography.
    Iused to be mentored by one of the editors of Popular photgraphyin New York. I would appreciate if you could find some affordable used Nikon and I’d be glad to sacrifice andbuy oneand continueto fulfill my dreams in image creativity. Thank you again for beautiful photos.
