Islands that is. Just back from a little rest and relaxation in Aruba. Another beautiful Dutch island with very happy people!

New Stuff Week

With Photokina 2010 right around the corner, this is the week that our favorite camera makers start to announce new products. So far, Nikon has unveiled a point and shoot camera with built in projector, a D3100 entry-level DSLR, and about 4 new lenses. Nothing earth shattering thats for sure, other than the price tag on the new 85mm f1.4 of course. Stay tuned.

Keep up-to-date on all the latest announcements HERE

Finally had an opportunity to get out and shoot with my favorite model! Really enjoying this D700 with 24-70mm combo! You can see a few more shots here.

Welcome Amigos!

Home from Mexico and settling back into the NJ rat race. Total bummer.

We met some great people, saw some beautiful scenery, and just plain relaxed.

I don't want to bore anyone so here is a brief run down...
We were able to make a trip over to Isla Mujeres where we rented a bad ass monster golf cart for the day so we could explore...

Got to see cool sea turtles...

And just some all around beautiful landscape...

I did end up taking quite a few photographs so I'll try to post them up soon. Not sure yet if I'll put them here or on my site.

Our first year and some new gear!

April really is shaping up to be an exciting month. On the photography front, I've been able to take a big step forward and finally move up to a full frame camera and some fast glass. Nikon offered up a few deals earlier in the month and I decided that now was the time to make a move. A D700 and 24-70mm f2.8 now call my gear bag home and I couldn't be happier. The low light performance of this combo should open up many more opportunities and really get the creative juices flowing.

But most importantly, this coming week brings some much needed vacation travel. My wonderful wife and I will be heading to Mexico to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Our awesome wedding photographer Soolan at Blue Glass Photography did such a great job capturing the memories for us last year on St. Thomas...

I have no idea where this first year has gone but why not commemorate it by heading back to the place where we got engaged for a little rest and relaxation.

As always, I will have a camera in my bag but I can't guarantee it will get much use, as I am really looking forward to not doing much of anything.

Spring is in the air...

And I finally have one of these fancy blogs! Welcome!

I'm not really one for all this "follow me around the internet" stuff, but I figured it was about time to get on board so I can try and promote some of my photography and the thought process behind it. Plus, almost every other photographer does which leads me to believe that I should too. Facebook is where I really draw the line though.

Its been a long winter here in NJ and these first few warm March days have been inspiring and made me really want to get off my ass and kick it into gear. I'm currently in the beginning stages of trying to turn one of my favorite hobbies into a small side business and it is proving quite the task, especially when you work full time. I definitely have much respect for all who have accomplished it. I guess we'll see what 2010 has in store for

Speaking of lusting after some faster lenses, I recently photographed an event for Identity Magazine. The lighting proved to be pretty challenging but I enjoyed trying to make it work. I couldn't help but think through the whole event "boy, a 24-70 f2.8 would be heaven right now". Thank you again to Susan Vernicek for giving me the opportunity to get out and shoot for her and her magazine. You can see some of the images here.
