Currently working on a new blog. New blog will feature: product review, photo tips and links, behind the scene videos, and weekly photo projects.
Last week my coworker let me borrow his Canon 50mm f/1.4 EF lens. I compared it with my vintage Canon 50mm f/1.4 FD lens. The new lenses are sharper, but I still prefer the old Canon lenses for my fine art work. Now for my photojournalism/event work the new lenses are the way to go! Below is a sample image that I took using the 50mm f/1.4 EF lens... I can't wait for my copy to come in, which should be today!!!! Oh, I forgot to mention I also ordered a Canon 24mm f/2.8 EF lens which should arrive Monday! :D
The pictures below and above were taken using only available light.
So was looking through my photographs and whole bunch of images that I hadn't worked on. The first image was taken at San Francisco Zoo last year. The second image was taken in San Francisco in 2010. I'll upload more of my older pictures later in the new future.
So I submitted this image to a photo contest. This image was shot last year at the San Francisco Zoo.
So I was recently asked by a prospective client if I know how to shoot in low lighting situation without using flash photography. I told my prospective client that 98% of my photography is done with natural light. Almost every image on my website is done using natural light. I have always prefer natural light over flash/strobe lighting. I have been experimenting with flash lighting lately. I do like the result, but it just doesn't feel natural to me. Maybe I just need to use flash/strobe lighting more in my work for it to feel natural to me.
I recently went to LA and took these photos of my grandmother. I used two different lenses to photograph my grandmother. The first lens was a Canon 24-105mm f/4L EF lens. And the second lens was a Canon 50mm f1.4 FD (using an adapter). The picture above was taking using the Canon 50mm f/1.4 FD. Can you tell the difference between retro glass (FD lenses) and modern glass (EF lenses)?
Added new images to the personal/random section of website. Was bored and decided to take these pictures of some toys that I was able to pick up from work. The background effect is NOT done in Photoshop. But instead the background effect was created by using a heater/fan, a large aperture, and by slightly bring the background into focus. All these images were taken using a Canon 50mm f/1.4 FD lens with my Canon 60D cameras.
I was walking in China Town with my girlfriend and took this picture with my Minolta Rokkor 35mm f/2.8 MC lens using my Canon 60D camera.
