Inventory Check: Too Much Gear

It’s been quite a long time since my last entry, and I wish I had a better excuse than laziness. But that’s all I got. So, to celebrate the return of my blog, let’s take a minute to reflect on all the gear that I have acquired in the almost two and a half years […]

Christmas in the Airport

What better way to spend Christmas day then being at the airport? As I wait to board my flight back to NYC, my eyes wandered around my immediate area. What can I do for the next hour to kill some time? I reached in my new Lowepro Fastpack 250 and grabbed my D40 out. I […]

The Kung Fu Kid

It was a particularly warm day in San Francisco as the annual Chinatown moon festival was being held. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone shooting, and even longer since I’ve been to SF, so I thought it would be a good day for a trip. Since I was born and raised in NYC’s Chinatown, it’s […]

The Jellies of Monterey

Having taken a 2 week hiatus from shooting, I find myself a bit rusty with a camera in my hands again. Took me sometime to reacquaint myself with the intricacies of manual metering & focusing. The first couple of shots from my trip to Monterey Bay Aquarium were complete garbage. Fortunately, the shoot wasn’t a […]

Shark Attack

Meet Jaws Jr. I met him at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom as part of the shark exhibit. I didn’t get many keepers from that shoot, so this is probably my favorite out of the bunch. Having never shot aquatic life before, shooting this gave me a preview on what to expect on my upcoming trip […]

Stay Away From Ebay

I’ve been clean for almost 2 months. Ever since I got my 17th lens back in June, I realized my camera gear addiction was spiraling out of control. So just like that, I quit ebay. No more daily routines of adding new auctions to my watch list. No more updating my spreadsheet for lens pricing […]

A Gilroy Gardens Portrait

With photography, sometimes you just get lucky, and this was definitely one of those times. My weekend trip to Gilroy Gardens (Bonfante Gardens) started out pretty ordinary, but ended up with some of my best shots to date, especially for portraits. I had originally planned on taking macro shots of flowers and possibly a few […]

Not Enough Camera Gear

What would a photography hobby be without the love for camera gear? I shamefully admit that I enjoy buying new/used camera equipment even more than actually going out and using said equipment. The fact that a lot of the gear shown in the above photo have not actually been used is evidence of that. I […]

July 4th, 2008

It wouldn’t be the 4th of July without a few common themes: the American flag, BBQ, and of course, fireworks. The BBQ didn’t happen this year, but I sure wasn’t going to miss the fireworks show. Especially now that I have a digital SLR, fireworks is just one of those shots you just have to […]

Diablo 3 Announced!

“Holy Sh!t!” was my first reaction, having just found out that my all time favorite game is finally coming out with a much awaited 3rd installment. It’s been 8 years now since Diablo 2, and I still remember it like it was yesterday. Funny, I can’t even remember much of last week, but somehow I […]
