Bagged A4

Did some shots for my friend Mike the other day. He recently bagged his Audi A4, and needed some updated pictures to reflect his amazing new stance.

Leu Gardens

The other day, I went with my roommate and his friend to Leu Gardens. It's a huge garden park here in Orlando. Unfortunately, there was a lot of death still lingering around from the cold winter (well, for Florida anyway). But there were still lots of things to see.

I finally got some use out of my Sigma 28-90 macro, which has more or less done nothing beyond sit in my camera bag. I'm hoping to go back in another 2 months or so when there's more to see there. But for now, you can check out the rest of the pictures I took at the park, as usual, on my Flickr account. Do me a favor and drop a comment on any pics you like, and give me some feedback. Thanks!

Colorado in February

In mid-February, I took a 12-day vacation. The first stop on my journey was a stay in Boulder, Colorado. Having never been to the state before, I was understandably excited. So I packed up my new Kata DR-467 camera bag with my camera, lenses, and a few other odds and ends, and caught a flight out of Orlando International Airport. I spent a little over a week in Boulder, and I must say that it is one of the nicest places I ever visited. I did a 15-mile hike from the house I was staying at to Downtown. At no point did I feel unsafe walking around with camera in hand. You really don't get that in the urban areas of Florida. Over the course of my stay, I managed to take hundreds of pictures all over the place.

Here's a sampling of what I came home with...

The Moon

Ok, they aren't car shots. But it was a nearly full moon last night and there weren't many clouds in the sky. So I decided to take a few shots.

They were taken with a Phoenix 500mm and a pair of 2x teleconverters. Apparently, I've got to clean my lenses, as a fair amount of dust showed up on the shots.

Simply Clean - 01.10.10

January 10th was the Simply Clean show here in Orlando. The venue was hosted by Reign and had an amazing turnout. The 60 reserved spots were swept up almost immediately, and the number of other stunning cars that attended was impressive to say the least.

Nissan Silvia S15

Nissan Skyline R33

VW Cabrio

VW Beetle

Maggie's S2000

Toyota Corolla AE86

As I was trying to help the Simply Clean crew out, I didn't snap all that many pics. But thankfully, many others were there and took LOTS of nice shots.

My boy Nickoli wrangled all the hot pics around the web from this epic event and compiled them all on his blog. Check them out and tell him I said hi! Simply Clean Wrap-Up

That's all for now!

Gabby's G35

Awhile back, my friend Gabby asked me to get some shots of her new (to her anyway) G35. Obviously I obliged, because I'm super nice like that.

The car is a 2003 Infiniti G35 Coupe. It's a 6-speed, and at the time of these photos is still completely stock.

We met in the late afternoon at the Altamonte Mall. It only took about 15 minutes of shooting in the parking garage for the friendly neighborhood security guard to inform us that we were not allowed to be taking pictures in this public place under his protection. Despite knowing my rights, I decided not to press the matter. We left and went to Denny's to come up with a new plan. Luckily, Gabby's boyfriend Robert knew of another (albeit smaller) parking garage nearby that was largely unused. So after finishing my Heart Attack Sandwich, we headed there right as the sun was sinking behind the horizon.

Thankfully, the "security guard" at this location had decided getting out of the car was more trouble than it was worth, and as such, left us alone.

If you're interested in the rest of the set, you can find it HERE on my Flickr account. As always, comments here and there are warmly welcome.

Gear used in this shoot:
Nikon D40X
Nikon 18-55mm kit lens
Sigma 52mm UV filter
Focal aluminum tripod
