If there is one thing I’m starting to notice with gels, it’s pretty great to have a shiny material reflecting the color. The reflections just add more color to the scene and it really helps to bring in more when you have such a dark background. more “Kickin it with Juri”
A good friend has loaned me the 100m L F2.8 Macro lens for my Canon EOS system. It’s been one of the lenses on my wish list for a while, but I just never got around to purchasing it. I’ll probably make a post with a better overview of the actual lens, but for now I wanted to play around with the cats and this lens. The cats aren’t really fans of having a camera shoved in front of their face so I need to start rewarding them with more treats.

So I know I’m not the only one that spends their trip eating, but sometimes I feel bad eating everything in sight and focusing every hang out around food. There are friends and family to see when I make my annual trip to San Jose, but it’s difficult to see them when food is blocking the view. I also found that editing photos on my current laptop is not the deals, the display is not accurate to what I’m used to. more “All I do is eat on trips”
Hung out with @kougs for a little walk around a hotel in Waikiki. The lighting had changed from the last time I took photos there so things didn’t go as planned, but we still managed to get something out of it. more “Tourist time”
Early on a Saturday Morning, I was invited to join in on a very quick cosplay shoot. more “Snow White in the forest”
