Been a while since my last post...but here is a good one!

Oh the site of this historical landmark. So incredible to see. Even at night it is truly a wonder.

Armed only with a ultra wide and a gorillapod i set out to get a night shot of the Colosseum.

The sky could not have been more awesome.

Went here to hang with some other g+ photogs. Got a few shots in. The day was pretty grey and cloudy. No sun. So took what I could.

This is also the first time taking the D600 w/ 24-70mm f/2.8G for a spin. Here is one shot. A few more to come.

I was surprised that you weren't there +Mark Weston, we missed you! It was gray at the beach too and I was surprised that there was actually some decent light and texture in the clouds to work with. Sunset was a bust though.

Hello FX!

Finally went full frame. Quick set up here for this shot. Pictured is the pretty awesome D600 with the equally awesome Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G. After id say about 1,000 shots plus some, i have not had an issue with the dust/oil thus far...might be one of the good ones.

D300s | 50mm f/1.4G

Plus One Collection Contribution

My submission for the #PlusOneCollection2012  organizer is +Ivan Makarov 

Little background for the image:

hour wait before sundown. standing at edge of hill on almost a steep slope. have the camera ready. fighting the cold wearing shorts. hands freezing. legs freezing. moister starting to cover the car behind. all to get the shot. that is what i endured to get what i saw in my mind. and i will it was well worth it.
pretty pleased with the turn out of this shot. i used about 5 shots all at different exposure times. pretty difficult to get the cars going both ways to get the lights to look nice.

after this i will be sure to pack two jackets (which i had on), hoodie or beanie, gloves, and a pair of pants. i had remembered i had a towel in the car so i got that sucker and wrapped it around my legs since i was wearing shorts at the top of this hill.

My Marshall TSL122. This is some power, 100 watts all tube. Great tone.

It is a heavy sucka. But i do love it and hunted a Marshall for a very long time. I have had it for over 5 years now and it still sounds awesome. Had to give it a great shot.

Some HDR work with the Fujifilm X-E2.

Used Nikon mount Tokina 12-24mm f/4.

The XE2 is a trooper. handles images very well.

Hannah, came in for her portrait in her cap & gown. I like the outcome of this shot even with its off center. 

This was also the first shoot with the D600 and strobes combined. I must say i really like how it handled and the output of the images.

D600 | 24-70mm  f/2.8G

strobist: b800 cam right @ 1/16 power, yn560 cam right @ 1/32th power. Triggered via cyber syncs.
