Natural Light Senior Portraits: My Niece Lauren

Its that time of the year for Senior Portraits and my niece asked me to take a few photos.  These are handheld, natural light shots using the Sony A7R2 and Zeiss 85mm Otus which is manual focus.  I think they turned out pretty well especially since I rarely do this kind of thing.  #portraits #classof2016 #seniorpictures #seniors

Some Aerial Photography Over Seattle

Flying back from St Helens and Rainier, we did a few turns around Seattle at dusk.  I went with my Zeiss 85mm Otus at 1.4

Mount St. Helens Dusk Flyover

Had the chance recently to fly around Mt Rainier and St Helens around sunset.  I was really struck by how the devastation around Helens looked from the air.  Sony a7r and Zeiss 16-35mm Mike Reid Photography #mtsthelens35years #mtsthelens

Shooting with the New Zeiss Milvus Line: 100mm f2

I had the chance about a month ago to sample the new Zeiss 100mm f2 Milvus lens.  Bokeh and sharpness were everything I loved about the 100 f2 ZE and the new body style was impressive as well.  Mike Reid Photography

A few sample shots from around the Seattle area.
