Welcome back to another website update, folks! August marks the last full month of summer, and Japan definitely felt the heat for a lot of the month. I didn’t get to experience the “beach scene” that is apparently super popular here, though I had some personal time a couple weekends to go stand-up paddle-boarding (harder than it looks!) and deep-sea fishing for mahimahi. For the former, I’ve managed to paddle-board over 4 miles without falling off, and the latter, caught hundreds of pounds of fish with a fierce sunburn worn as a battle wound. Continue Reading
To continue on with my yearlong project of topic-driven photography, weeks 27-39 threw even more creative challenges my way that unfortunately forced me to do some photographs outside their original time slot. Turns out, it is pretty difficult to manage personal photography pursuits on top of freelance assignments that have to come first. However, in these past couple weeks, I began to catch up in editing photographs for website posts here. To kick things off, let’s get up to speed on the third quarter of my 52 photographs:
Adolescent rabbits are very fun animals to play around with. Depending on their age and fear of humans, you can walk right up to one and almost pick it up before it scurries off.

Keeping it short and sweet, I’ve been out and about a few days lately with a few different lenses, the 75-150mm f/3.5 E, the 36-72 f/3.5 E, the 105mm f/2.8 Ai-s Micro, and the 50mm f/1.4 Nikkor S-Auto. All four are good in different ways, no doubt about that. Let’s just have a picture-centered post today, shall we? (P.S. Some of the shots in here from the 75-150mm may make it into the review, just so I don’t get called out in the future for a double post!)
All the following taken with the NEX-7:
Keeping this short and sweet, because it seems everyone now has the capability to do fireworks pictures (especially around this holiday!).
So…short version: all shot last night with NEX-7 and Nikon 28mm f/2.8 E at ISO 100 as close as the police would allow me, with apertures ranging from f/5.6-11, and exposure time ranging from .8-3.2 seconds (tripod and remote release used). Some are captioned, some aren’t. Will have first impressions of this last prime in the Series-E line-up from Nikon sometime this weekend. Now…PICTURES!
P.S. I uploaded the following 12 at a slightly higher resolution than normal to try to share better detail of the streams. 🙂
