100 Person Photo Challenge

I got a new lens and decided to do a 100 person photo challenge in Bricktown. The goal was to take pics of 100 random people in less than 2 and a half hours. I got there at 7:39pm and thanks to all the wonderful people there, I had taken pics of 101 people by 9:58pm. Goal accomplished!!

However, I had to take a few more just because I was enjoying it so much. By the end of the night I had taken pics of 125 people and a few scenic shots… None of these are edited. They are pulled straight from my camera, which is a Sony a6000 and the new lens was actually not new at all. Although it’s new to me, it was actually made sometime between 1961 and 1970. It’s the Canon 50mm F/0.95. Yes… 0.95!! This is the “Dream Lens” and I found out last night that this nickname is VERY well deserved. All of these pics were shot with the lens wide open at 0.95 and without a flash. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. I’ll probably do an actual review of the lens later. So here they are:

5K Dead Run

I got to shoot Zombies! What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. 5kDeadRun is a non-profit organization that gives 100% of their proceeds to benefit scientific research on cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. I had a great time shooting this event.



Iron Masters shoot

Iron Masters is a local company that transforms iron into anything you can think of. Everything from gates to stairs! They did a demo to show how they use the tools and what it takes to build all those awesome things and I had to go shoot it. Hope you enjoy the pics.

Playing with Fire

I got to try something new this weekend. The wind was calm and we weren’t under a burn ban! I had been waiting for about 3-4 weeks for this moment! I headed to Lake Hefner at 10:00pm and took my fire extinguisher just in case. No one called the cops (or the fire dept) on me and an hour and a half later, I came back with these…

Sony Digital Camera with Floppy

Check out the video below of the Sony Mavica digital camera from 1997 that used a floppy disk as its “SD” card. It had a resolution of 0.3MP and could store a whopping 40 images on a 1.44MB Floppy disk! It’s big brother could even store UP TO 60 SECONDS of video. Digital cameras have certainly come a long way since then.
