Welcome To Forever

I gave my Brother-in-law and my future Sister-in-law two options for their wedding…

1) I can stand up in the wedding

2) I can shoot their wedding

Since you are currently reading this post, they obviously chose the better of the two options.

I shot on and off for about 12 hours capturing a total of 1,465 photos. Below is a selection that highlights their BIG DAY.


I also launched a revamp of rationalgaze.com to go along with this post. Enjoy!

Oscoda: Prime & Wide

We went up north last weekend for what might have been our last trip of the year. I decided to only shoot with the Canon 100mm f/2.8 during the day. Something that not only forced me to shoot prime, but also forced me to shoot something other than cannabis with my 100mm lens.

Once night fell, I threw the Sigma 10-20mm on to take a stab at photographing the Milky Way with my new Canon 70D for the first time. I had a few beers throughout the day, so I wasn’t in tip top shape to be walking around in the dark with my camera on the tripod. While I am happy with the outcome, I could have done better.

I also messed around with back button focusing, something that I found out about a week or so before the trip. I need to play around with it more, but for continuous focusing/panning situations, I like it a lot!
