Photography

Sharing memories of places I have been blessed to see.
Currently using a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with an ultra-wide Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Lens.
Rarely using my first Nikon D5000 with a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G Lens.

    Black and White Photos of Sonya

    As winter refuses to make room for spring, I keep taking indoor photographs... And what better model than my parents's cat Sonya? This time in black and white :)

    Yesterday I took some more photos of my two cats, Simba and Sonya. I just can't have enough of them :)

    Vacation in Egypt (Hurghada, 2010)

    In January 2010 I had the opportunity to take a quick 7-days vacation. Destination: Hurghada, Egypt. Hotel: Imperial Shams Abu Soma Resort 5* Hotel (Safaga)....

    The Nikkor 50mm F1.4G lens can also do close-up shots, without any additional macro lens. I'm a bit surprised actually :)

    Low Light Portrait

    Here is a photo of a friend that I took under rather low light, with the AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.4G lens. The bokeh is acceptable :)

    Simba’s Photo Debut

    I wasn't able to get good shots of my cat Simba with the 18-55mm VR lens, as it required slower shutter speeds. Fortunately, the new 50mm f/1.4G lens does the trick :) Enjoy!
