Hiked out to the Fremont lookout last night from the Sunrise parking lot. The trail and road to it are in great shape and we only had two neighbors at the lookout and they left quickly. Lots of well fed pikas working the trail relentlessly 🙂 We got about half way back and put on headlamps. We ran into quite a few milky way shooters on the way back down. I tried to assure one guy’s wife, huddled in a blanket, that it would be over soon. She seemed skeptical. A very pleasant outing. On a side note: Getting back into Seattle about 1am and finding No Traffic was absolutely sublime. Like the old days.
Another note: HIGHLY recommend the Pie Goddess in Enumclaw for a pre- or post-hike treat
Hiked up to Artist’s Point last night in my Sorels. Followed the well worn boot path to the top and caught some nice alpen glow along Shuksan and Table Mountain. Tried out my new 900 lumen headlamp on the way down and it really lights up the path. This is a spectacular hike and highly recommended.
Spent some time last week in downtown Seattle doing casual corporate headshots. I rented a 24-70 but as soon as the client saw the Zeiss 85 Otus shots, that went back in the bag. These were done with natural light and Sony A7R2. #headshots #zeiss
I woke up early and noticed that the Space Needle was covered in fog so I got up and headed to Kerry park. I set up my Sony a7r2 and Zeiss 85 Otus for a time lapse video. I also took some stills with my other Sony a7r. #timelapse #video #zeiss
After my daily routine of sunrise and sunset chasing, I spent some time in downtown Siem Reap around Pub Street. It is touristy, but not quite as bad as other areas I’ve visited. Lots to eat and lots to drink, and people to watch. I brought the Sony a7r2 and Zeiss 85mm Otus wide open to see what I could capture.
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
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
