First Impressions: Making The Switch to Full Frame

I’ve been into photography for quite some time. I originally learned on film while taking classes in high school, then bought a DSLR a couple of years after my film camera was stolen in Europe. My first DSLR was the cropped sensor Nikon D70. I bought the D7000 about 6 or 7 years later in...

  • Sem'scongratulation for upgrading to full frame les!
    any issues with this body? whereas D600 has many issues with oil spot on sensor?
    at this time i’m using D5100, and pretty happy with the result,
    One day I want to upgrade to the D7100 if my D5100 had reached the limit..ReplyCancel

  • leslieThe D610 was basically an update to fix the oil problem, and I haven’t noticed anything myself yet. Definitely loving it! As for the upgrade, the D7000 has been a fantastic camera for me, and I’m sure you’ll love the D7100 if you decided to upgrade. 🙂ReplyCancel

Evening Begins In Tokyo

I may have said this before, but Ueno Station in Tokyo is one of my favorite train stations. Much of the photography you see out of Tokyo is focused around the Central or Western areas – places like Shinjuku or Shibuya, for example – and I think places like Ueno are comparatively less popular. Personally,...

  • Sem'sah, sugee…
    Tokina lenses are good?
    I’m considering buying one, the 12 28 F/4 or nikon 16 85 F/3.5 – 5.6
    in this photo, are you using Adobe lightroom?

    sorry for my poor english -_-!ReplyCancel

    • leslieThanks! 🙂 Yes, I love my Tokina lens. I’ve used it tons since I bought it. Very sharp and sturdy build.

      As for this photo, I used Lightroom, Photomatix, and Photoshop CC. This is a true HDR photo, so it is made up of three different exposures.

Storytelling With A Triptych

I don’t usually share photos of my kids here on my blog, but I wanted to share this triptych that I made recently with my youngest daughter. What is a triptych you ask? A triptych is a series of three photos which have a flow to them in some way, and there are so many...

    Ride Through The Bikan

    This photo comes from my family’s trip to Okayama Prefecture several weeks back. I didn’t include it in the Kurashiki Evening post, I’m not sure why, but anyway I like it a lot. Sometimes as a photographer it’s good to get as low as you can, but in certain places that can be a challenge....

      A Speeding Bullet Train in Tokyo

      I took this photo of a passing Shinkansen (bullet train) in Tokyo near Hamamatsucho Station. Although not perfect, it’s a pretty decent spot to grab some shots of these trains passing by. Of course, with bullet trains, at least to me, you want to show the movement of the train. It’s part of what makes...
