    Always in My Ear [3/52]

    For years now the main device I’ve used to listen to music and podcasts is earbuds. My first pair was the Sony WF-1000XM3’s which I owned for several years but was never completely happy with. The audio quality and ANC (active noise cancellation) were great, but the case size was a bit big and call quality was horrible. I wanted to upgrade them for something newer but felt bad about…

  • 2023 Me [2/52]

    Here is the second entry in my 52 Week Project for 2023. Each year I like to do a self portrait and I’ve wanted something new for my profile photos so this was the perfect opportunity. I actually shot this image twice but the first time I composed the image too tightly so it wouldn’t work for many sites. For those interested in the technical aspects of this image, it…

  • Just Eat and Shoot

    A lot of people will tell you that gear doesn’t matter. In some ways this is true but it’s also false. I’ve found when you enjoy using something, you’ll find any excuse to use that item. Like if you have a really nice car you’ll drive for short distances you would usually walk just because you want to use that vehicle. For me since getting the Fuji X-S10 and then…

  • My Fujifilm XF 33mm f/1.4 R LM WR Has Arrived!

    Two days ago, I finally sold my Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R LM WR and got the XF 33mm f/1.4 R LM WR as its replacement. Although I liked the 23mm, it has an equivalent of 35mm so I didn’t want to double up with my full frame gear. I haven’t got to use the lens much due to rainy weather and work, but I did take the two following…

  • My Sony Kit So Far

    It’s only been a few days since I made the swap to Sony but it’s been busy. Like whenever I get a new camera I’ve been taking a lot of photos so I can get used to how the body works. In next week’s podcast episode I’ll be discussing in detail why I made the swap and some early impressions. I know have 2 E Mount lenses and I definitely…

  • She Said Yes!

    I currently have a post in the works with a bunch of photos from my last outing but I thought I’d quickly release this one first. After nearly 11 years I am finally engaged to my now fiancé! It was an easy yes since we already have our wedding booked but still exciting nevertheless. This shot was taking with my R6 and RF 35mm f/1.8 IS and I’m going to…

  • The Family Grows Then Shrinks

    Despite making it my goal to control my G.A.S this year, my lens family got a tiny bit bigger last week. In 2020 I travelled within the state using just the M5 and was pleasantly surprised with how well it performed and didn’t feel limiting. Like most people, if travelling with family photography isn’t my sole focus so I don’t usually have the same dedication to photos as I have…

  • The Tree Is Up

    We’ve finally put our tree up last week so I think it’s mandatory to take some photos of the decorations. Considering we use the same decorations each year there’s only so much you can change to make them look unique but I thought I’d give it a try anyway. The below images were taken with my Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 STM lens. Our tree isn’t very pretty since it’s almost…

  • Bottle for Macro Monday’s

    For this weeks Macro Monday’s challenge the theme is a bottle which couldn’t have anything inside it and had to focus on the object itself. I wasn’t too sure what I could do to make a bottle by itself more interesting and I ended up with the image you see above. I decided to focus on the opening of the bottle and the textures around it. The lights from my…

  • Treasured

    This weeks theme for Macro Monday’s on Flickr is Treasured so here is my image. With the theme, you need to capture something that is treasured to you. I don’t have many very small items that would be good for macro shots aside from this ring which I’ve had for well over 10 years so I guess this fits the topic well. I shot this image using the Canon EOS…
