Lately I have been playing around with my old Nikon D70 with it's "nifty 50" 50mm f1.8 lens. It's been refreshing to see that this old camera that I thought was just not good enough, can produce better results than I had ever gotten it to produce in the past.  It compares against my new Olympus OM-D E-M5 pretty well! For example the following image was taken just the other day with the D70:

And this is one take a short while ago with the Olympus:

Z in the light.

 

Obviously the color rendition is different and the detail is somewhat higher (16 megapixel vs 6.1 megapixel) but you can't deny the old Nikon can pull off a good shot under good conditions. 

Now, if there were only an APS-C Nikon with a "nifty 50" that had the 5 axis stabilization of the Oly, and was the same nice small size and weight, well, I would have another new camera :)

A couple of my photos were published in this most recent issue (October 2012) of the Seattle Met magazine, one of them (pictured) was a full page spread behind the table of contents, awesome!

Great issue as well, found some very cool places I would like to visit in this issue.

This photo is part of a larg-ish set of Port Townsend photos.

Well, it was an awefully nice feeling having my photo reproduced 1.8 million times today.

 

A little background, I submitted 4 of my photos to the USA Today Weather Gallery, and a day later, the editor of the Weather Page (print edition) sent me an email asking if I wouldn't mind if they published one or two of my photos.  I said sure, and here you go, Port Townsend, Washington's stormy morning is all over the nation!

A while back when I ran my studio in Boise, I had this domain for running my business as well as publishing a blog. Since I stopped doing photography for my primary business, I had also disabled the site I had at this url.

Anyhow, long story short, I never got rid of my domain, and it's now a perfect place to toss up my favorite shots from each of my photo safaris, and to post a bit more info about them than I could on flickr or my portfolio. Let's start off with one right now!

This one is called Stumped:

I was out shooting an awesome sunrise morning, and had just found this stump with the awesome pastel colors overhead, I had to settle down and get the shot.
