New Gallery: Cold Streets of Manhattan II
Have you ever experienced taking photos on a cold morning in New York City? Well this past weekend i had the opportunity to walk the streets with a couple cameras, some film and my eye to see what i could find in the City that never sleeps. I shot mostly with my T2i, but i also used my Grandfather's old Yashica Electro 35 GT 35mm Film Rangefinder camera. Using it was such a joy and breath of fresh air, using it made me feel so at ease and put me in a comforting mood to capture the amazing scenes and personalities of the Street. I enjoyed every minute of shooting both cameras, especially being able to use the Canon 50mm f/1.8 on my T2i. The creamy bokeh, or out of focus parts of my images, look absolutely fantastic, i loved shooting with that lens and look forward to using it in the future.

New Gallery: OnLocation- Washington, D.C. (2012)
Last summer Mike and I had the privilege of taking our first dedicated photography trip. As the capital city of the United States, Washington, District of Columbia (DC for short) is a dynamic metropolis and civic center with many outdoor and indoor attractions. Anyone who has visited the city will tell you the variety of monuments, museums, and public spaces. For photographers, Washington, DC provides many opportunities of landscape, street, portrait, and even sports photos.
Be sure to watch our YouTube video about the experience.
New Gallery: Cold Streets of Manhattan
If you enjoy street photography, Manhattan (New York City, NY) is an obvious choice for getting out on a brisk winter day and shooting. Back in January, Mike and I traveled to Manhattan to shoot street photography. There is no limit to what you will find on the streets of New York. Both of us shot the Canon EOS Rebel T2i, kit lens, and the EF 24mm f2.8 (1998 version). The quality of the images show that you don't need the best DSLR on the market or L-glass to capture a great photograph. Both galleries are posted together.

New Gallery: 2013 JV Championship
For a second straight year, the Jackson Jaguars JV ice hockey team made it to the shore conference championship game. While I wasn't able to capture a lot during the game, I was able to get some shots. As always, I shot with my T2i and EF 70-200mm f2.8L. I'm always surprised and please with the results of this setup. If you would like a digital copy of any of the photos, please email us from the contact page.
New Gallery: Jags Varsity v Southern
I shot this game about a month and a half ago before the high school ice hockey season ended. The Jackson Jaguars Varsity ice hockey team played Southern at Jersey Shore Arena. The go-to setup for ice hockey for me is a Canon EOS T2i (1.6x Crop) and an EF 70-200mm f2.8L lens. The 70-200mm is an amazing lens; and, when paired with the T2i, it has the perfect focal length for indoor sports. If you would like a digital copy of any of the photos, send us an email over on the contact page.
