Fukuoka City Rush

Went down town the other night and what a jungle. So much fun. Reminds me a little of Blade Runner. 
This photo is part of my Fujinon 56mm f1.2 R review. You can see it here: Such a great lens.

Been breaking in my 10-24mm f4 Fujinon lens. Loving it on this Fuji X-T1.

Heading back to Japan in just two more days. This photo is from last year that I recently processed. I shot it on the Sony A7r with a Canon lens.

This year I'll be using mostly my Fuji X-T1 and X100T. Should be fun!

I'm also on Instagram now 
It's crazy, with Instagram I get significantly more activity with less than 1/18,000 of followers over Google+. G+ seems like it's really died in this last year. Anyone else feel that way?

+carol owens I've been really liking Fuji lately. It might not be the A7r, but I think their gear is really fun to use. Something about it.

But it's always fun to switch it up, see if the gear really does make a difference. :)

San Francisco City Hall
Just got back from San Francisco and actually did the tourist thing this time.
This was my first time to City Hall. I really love this building and it was very cool to explore. A lot of homeless around there but you should check it out if you ever come to this city.

I've posted a few more street photography photos on my blog here:

Tamron 15-30mm Review Is Up
I've finished testing out the new Tamron 15-30mm lens. You can see the full review on my website here:

It's not a bad lens for the price. Might be the best bang for the buck if you're a DSLR shooter. Check it out.

Rising Forces - Oahu Hawaii
Another shot from Hawaii showing the power of the Ocean there. 

I grew up going to the beaches regularly here in southern California and surfing through my teens and twenties. But that ocean in Hawaii, it still scares me. Poseidon is just always so angry out there.

A Perfect Day In Southern Japan
The typhoon finally cleared up leaving these perfect blue skies. This is one of the best views I've seen in Japan so far and not a soul was in sight.

Lost In The Woods

This photo was another one from last year in Japan. My wife and I set off to find undiscovered areas to shoot. Found this naturally growing bamboo forest somewhere between Saga and Fukuoka.

How HDR Works In The New Lightroom

I wrote up a brief little description of how HDR works in the new Lightroom. It's pretty cool and different and it's how I processed this photo.

I shot this with the Fuji X100T but processed it with Iridient Developer. I'm finding Iridient can produce much sharper images than Lightroom when used with X-Trans sensors.  See more on that:

I'll be doing a full comparison between Iridient and Lightroom soon as soon as the new Lightroom comes out. What ever happened to that anyway? All these camera shops were allowing pre-orders for it then suddenly it just vanished.

Pacific Park, Santa Monica

This was a shot from last weekend when we had some of that crazy weather here in Los Angeles. What I mean by crazy weather is that it rained for a few minutes. :)

I shot this on the Fuji X100T believe it or not. I was testing the Tamron 15-30 on my Canon 5Dmkii and got bored so switched over to my little guy. I have to say, I'm thinking Fuji might make the best sensor in the industry right now in terms of DR, color accuracy and sharpness. And there is some pretty advance tech going on there as well. 

This shot was a single exposure. No HDR. Very little post processing.

Waiting to see what Fuji does with the X-Pro2 then I might make the full switch over from my Sony A7r. But we'll see. It's still too early to completely abandon Sony for their lack of build quality and quality control.  But I think I'll probably end up just run two systems. A FF Sony and an APS-C Fuji, because I still really do like my A7r. It just needs a lens mount that doesn't wobble, a lcd screen that doesn't get little bubbles in it and proper weather sealing.

Dockweiler Beach Sunset
The Chinese New Years Eve brought us an amazing sunset here in Los Angeles.
As I was driving to the beach everything was completely grey and overcast. Sitting in rush hour traffic I was thinking I completely wasted my evening. Glad I stuck with it. :)

This photo was taken with the new Tamron 15-30mm ultra wide zoom lens. I'll have a full review probably up tonight or tomorrow. So far It's a solid lens. But a little awkward using it with the Sony A7r.
