Personal | Atlanta Streets Alive April 2014 in the West End

Life People

This past weekend, after a full day Hindu Indian wedding on Saturday, we headed over to the West End on Sunday for the latest iteration of Atlanta Streets Alive! Conveniently located right off the MARTA station, we jumped on our local downtown train and headed 2 stops to the West End to let Miles roam the streets in peace. Betty’s Mom is also here from China for a few weeks so it was a great chance for her to get out of the house and see some other parts of Atlanta besides the downtown area! Perfect Atlanta Spring weather meant this was an amazing event, can’t wait for the next one in May!

Travel Photography: Farmers in Rural Shanghai
This post comes as a welcome break from the more travel oriented posts about our time in Beijing. While Betty did some real work in Shanghai, I spent my time on assignment shooting at the various farms and greenhouses we visited in the suburbs an hour outside of Shanghai. While Betty was occupied talking about gerberas and tissue culture, as well as being the company’s official translator from Mandarin into English, I occupied my time with camera in hand! Language barrier running at an all-time high way out here in rural China, I did my best to communicate nonverbally. Most of the time I made things work using the simple action of smili ...

Personal Work | Family Time at Piedmont Park with the Olympus OM-D E-M5
Over the Thanksgiving holiday I had a nice break from weddings and was able to get caught up on a few editing projects and get some album designs going. Unfortunately for me, I still have a bunch more to do, but it was nice for a break! I couldn't completely put the camera down even in my "down time" and I tried to use the Olympus OM-D E-M5 (see older review here) exclusively instead of bringing out the huge Canon 5D Mark III at the Thanksgiving dinner table and family get-togethers. Being a mirrorless or compact system camera, it doesn't have all of the bells and whistles of the big cameras, but it comes pretty close! I was seeing how much y ...

Pool & Studio shoot – Newspaper backdrop
It was a meetup event by Melbourne. I am glad that I made to the event even with more than one hour driving. The newspaper backdrop was setup at someone's garage. What a creative and smart idea! Something different, but not too difficult to make it happen. Here is the behind the scene for the photo shoot. There were four models and a dozen photographers. Brandi is the youngest among them who is still a freshmen in high school. Her long gold hair is such a treasure for photographers.  Her blue ocean eyes are big and deep, and I believe there are many boys are crazy about her. She is still a young girl, so when some photographer asked her to ...
