Update:

For the past several months, most of the work I've done is still under NDA. Recent work not under NDA has been things like licensing images, and selling slightly-customized 3D models.. Interesting work for me, of course, but not too exciting for 3D users looking for new projects from me, including training.

Don't worry! Over the next few months, I'll be able to show what I've been working on, (new conceptual images and animation, depicting real-world aircraft) I also expect to release a major training volume in 2017, so check back occasionally here, or on my site at http://www.mikejamesmedia.com

A year of seasonal changes here in Anchorage, Alaska…

I’ve lived here in Anchorage since 1995, and am in love with the place. Beautiful people, unbelievable terrain and wildlife, clean air and water, and lots of places to explore. This slide show is accompanied by music from my good friend, Melissa Fischer.

A dozen of my earliest Nikon D810 photos. This camera is really giving me what I had hoped for. Love it.

So lucky... Thanks to selling my Nikon D3X for a great price, I was able to obtain a Nikon D810. Coupled with my D7100 and some great FX glass, I now have a better kit. Looking forward to the increased resolution and dynamic range! :)

Time-lapse (about 30 minutes) from last night, (10/16/16) around 2am... (Anchorage, Alaska)

This is about 700 images (one every 2 seconds) combined in a stack. The cloud movements, star trails, and airplane tracks are as they occurred. The lines on the ground are me walking around with a small flashlight, but since I was moving, only the light from the flashlight shows up. The little sparkles in the foreground are the frost, being illuminated as the Moon moved across the sky.

Nikon D7100 with 20mm f/1.8 lens, at f/1.8, ISO 100, and each exposure was 1 second.

I shot two time-lapse sequences this morning of sunrise over Anchorage. Winter is coming soon! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pX-rT7D1ly4

My thoughts, as a certified non-expert, on how to NOT buy the latest, greatest camera gear, and be perfectly happy. http://www.mikejamesmedia.com/mj_photography_02b.html
