Review: Pentax DA* 55mm f/1.4

A few weeks back I decided to rent the Pentax DA* 50mm f/1.4 lens.  Many call this one of the best modern prime lenses offered by Pentax so I was intrigued by it.  Also, I would be covering a student robotics competition typically in low light environment and with a lot of opportunities to give […]

Event Photography – 11 Tips

I thought as one of my first posts back it might make sense to circle back to where I left off…talking a little about event photography.  Over the last couple of years I have had the good fortune to cover a wide array of events throughout the Pittsburgh area.  These have ranged from robotics competitions, […]

Quack! Quack! Look I’m back!!

No, the super popular artistic exhibit know as “the big yellow duck” is not coming back to Pittsburgh anytime soon that I am aware of (sorry for the disappointment).  But I have had a burst of motivation to update this blog after it has been dormant since March 21, 2011.  Kind of amazing to me […]

Review: Pentax DA* 60-250mm f/4

Thought I would share some insights on a really great Pentax lens.  The Pentax DA* 60-250mm f/4 is part of the high-end series of professional lenses that Pentax has available.  I rented this lens as I was looking for a longer option that had better quality and a set aperture.  There are not many options […]

Yeah yeah…I know…it has been awhile.  Not the first time and surely not the last!  HAHA!  But a burst of creative energy so riding the wave while it lasts!  Thought I would share a few photos from a GREAT recent shoot I did.  Well I have had a lot of great photo shoots of late […]
