Had a great time shooting some beautiful light tonight so I though I’d share.
The following photos were all shot within about a 30 minute period in the late afternoon here in Taipei. I shot 270 images in that time, and decided to share the best here, and make a video of the rest.
Every image was made with a 50mm lens set at various settings and they were only lightly retouched in post. They’re all in chronological order, except for the first one. What’s important though, is to look at the light, how it changes, and the things that can be done with it.

JiuFen (Jeoufen), Taiwan (台灣九份) is a popular destination about an hour east of Taipei. It’s popular with tourists and locals alike, but has a certain charm to it that can’t be missed.
I recently visited Jiufen for an evening and had a great time wandering around. I wasn’t planning on writing a full blog post about it, but I left with some fun photos that I thought I might share…

I just got a new Nikon D700 and have started testing it. Like I said in an earlier post: I’m not a reviewer, but I’m very happy with my initial test shots and thought I’d share them with you.
Ok, Ok… The truth is, I just so happen to teach English to a bunch of the cutest kids in the world and I wanted to show them off. Almost all of the following pictures are shot with the D700 and a Nikon 50mm f1.4 set at 1.4. Needless to say, I’m happy with the camera so far.
