Summertime Backyard Portraits with the Family and the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8 Lens

Sometimes it’s the gear, other times it’s the light – tonight was both. Edited in Lightroom and finalized in Luminar 4. Luminar 4 does a fantastic job with image quality, however the software has a glaring flaw – it loses metadata when exporting. It’s a well known and documented issue. The way around it is ...

Tolmie State Park

Now that we have a Washington state park pass, we’re starting to venture out more as a family during the shutdown. It’s not over yet, our state has a four phase program, and our county is still in phase one. City parks are closed, but state parks are open. Today we decided to go hiking ...

Forget the Nikon Z6 ProRes RAW, Got Canon EOS R 15-35mm f/2.8 RF 4K aka Goodbye Sony 16-35mm f2.8 GM

It’s official – ProRes RAW on the Nikon Z6 isn’t worth it. The footage is soft, Final Cut Pro X is slow to edit it, if you apply a sharpening filter in FCPX it causes glitches in the video, and it’s cumbersome to use the Atomos Ninja V. N-Log 10 bit however is quite nice. ...

Social Distancing – At West Hylebos Wetlands Park

Even though Washington state is supposed to be practicing social distancing, we’re still allowed to go on outdoor walks. However, since everyone is eager to get outdoors, we’ve discovered that we need to get out of the house early in order to maintain the recommended distance between people. All of these images were captured with ...

Canon 35mm f/1.8 RF Macro Lens – Initial Tests

Social distancing – what a world! The 35mm focal length is one of my favorites, and I’ve been looking for a chance to go out and shoot with my new lens, but we’re staying close to home and avoiding any and all contact with crowds. While this might not be the absolute best 35mm lens ...

Canon EOS R Test 4K Eye Detection, Firmware 1.6, 28-70mm @ f2, Neutral Pircture Profile, Rode Wireless Go, and Cats

I sold my Sony a7R III and Loxia Lenses for a Canon EOS R and 28-70mm f/2. Here’s my initial thoughts, and some test shots from Catffeinated – a cat cafe. Also, in this video I test the latest firmware in 4K with eye/face detection on.

Enter the EOS R – aka Catffeinated Cat Cafe’ in Tacoma

Canon is catching up to competition with their latest full frame mirrorless lenses. Sony has been in the number one spot for some time, and even though their cameras produce wonderful results, I don’t enjoy using them. Sony’s GM lenses are quite nice, but the rest of their lens lineup is nothing special. Canon on ...
