A few weeks ago, I went to my local camera store to check out the X-H1 when it was released. Based on my 20-25 minutes with it, here’s what I found:
90 Days Later With My Fujifilm X-T2
Beginning with a Fujifilm X-T20, a cold, wet November hike to photograph Twin Falls enlightened me to the benefits of a weather sealed camera. It was then durability surpassed convenience in priority and I bought my Graphite Silver Edition X-T2. 90 days later, I feel I’ve spent enough time with it to render a proper judgment, so here’s my own review of what I’ve experienced and ultimately learned.
Rialto Beach and Hoh Rainforest
Jay and I went to check out the Hoh Rainforest and added a stop for Rialto Beach. We left at 8am and spent over 4 hours on the road. As we got to Forks, we realized we hadn't given ourselves enough time to get anything done. So instead of doing everything half-assed, we limited the... Continue Reading →
Rizal Park, revisited.

Chasing Waterfalls in Newcastle, WA

50 Shades of Meh
The weather today was gray. At least there was enough texture and movement to create an interesting photo, so I went to Myrtle Edwards Park to get some water shots. My route took me through the Olympic Sculpture Park, so I took a few photos there, too. Ultimately, this was an exercise in composition. It's... Continue Reading →
Moonrise at Sunrise
Caught this view while setting up to shoot at Volunteer Park. A beautiful crescent moon rising as the sun's light peeks above the horizon.
Seattle, Played Out
I've decided, based on some of my recent photos, to continue shooting from the most played out locations around Seattle. My original goal when I bought this camera was to find locations that local "photographers" haven't already oversaturated on social media, or to photograph those views in ways others haven't yet done, or can't, with...

Another Played Out Location. Here’s My Contribution.
The view of Seattle from Rizal Bridge is probably the most shared photo of the city and rivals only the view from Kerry Park on Queen Anne Hill. I figured I'd give it my take since the weather cleared out a bit and I wasn't willing to take a chance to go any further in... Continue Reading →
seattle by rooftop
Location scouting in preparation for the lunar eclipse to happen early next morning. Settled on the roof of my condo as my goal is to capture the eclipse with a recognizable landmark in the foreground. My desire is to compress the perspective to make the blood red moon look much larger in relation to the foreground elements.
Yes, you've seen this before. There was a break in the rain after a week so I took advantage. This shot is so overplayed, it's ridiculous, but I decided to use it as a learning moment.
Seattle from afar, part 2
Now for the snapshots. Just some sunrises, ferries, driftwood and trash art.
Seattle from afar, part 1
The plan was to take photographs predawn and during blue hour. I got out the door really late after instinctively grabbing the wrong bag the first time I left and didn't notice until I got to the pier. Ultimately, I took the water taxi to West Seattle and decided to shoot like I'd planned, just... Continue Reading →
onward and upward
