Other than a few user-issue (i.e. me...), I'm very happy with the results.

Camera: Nikon D300s
Lenses: 50 f/1.8 and 85 f/1.4, wide-open or near it.
Viewfinder: Hoodman Hood-Loupe 3.0

Edited in iMovie and music by Moby.

Portrait: Sarah McCoy and the Zippidy Yeah's!

Last week I did with a really cool photo shoot with some very good friends of mine: Sarah McCoy and the Zippidy Yeahs!

Super cool people and super cool music. Sarah is one of the most amazing singers I know and also loves whiskey... Great, real people.

We shot with under the weird lights at the Monterey Mirror Maze for their upcoming album.

Video: Skateboarding

I have now entered the world of film making.

Below is a very roughly-edited video I made this afternoon on skateboarders at Lake El Estero in Monterey.

I shot it on my Nikon D300s with a fisheye, 17-35mm f/2.8 and a 80-200 f/2.8.

More to come of course. Stay tuned.
