Julian

My nephew Julian is two years old now! I took some photos of him over the weekend at one of the parks I used to frequent when I was his age. Such a happy little booger, this one.

I haven’t experimented with bokeh panorama shots in quite a while. A nice manual focus f/0.95 lens was all the inspiration I needed to have another go at this quirky method of shooting. Both of these shots are multi-panel stitches taken with the lens wide open.

I was actually going for a full length portrait for the image above. Unfortunately, the photomerge process somehow made her feet disappear into Photoshopland. This is certainly not an exact science :)

The Interrupting Shiba

with 4 comments

I often set up impromptu portrait sessions with the wife so she can record the funky outfits she puts together. This is a very simple  set up, with a single Canon 600EX on a light stand shooting through an umbrella.

We’re triggering the flash with Pocket Wizards, and the transmitting unit is hotshoe’d to a brand new Panasonic GX7 I’m testing. This camera’s mechanical shutter has a native sync speed of 1/320th. Pretty handy for shooting flash portraits outdoors with your aperture wide open, in this case at f/0.95.

It wasn’t long, however, until Suki decided to walk in on our little shoot:

So as not to offend the Suki, I made sure she got a solo portrait of her own :)

My cousin and his wife celebrated their first year of marriage last month during their visit from Colombia. I accompanied them on their last day in San Francisco last week, running some last-minute errands and stopping to grab a few frames every now and then.

So long you two. Happy anniversary  :)

So, seeing as I didn’t even have enough time to finish a single roll on Josh and Vanessa, the rest of this post will have to consist of, uh, more Shiba pictures. Surprise surprise.

Miru (left) is a Shiba puppy who in no way shape or form was able to get Suki to care about his existence. We made them hang out anyway:
