Photo Plus Expo – On the Street
Didn’t get much time to explore NYC this weekend during the Photo Plus Expo but I was able to grab a few shots on my mundane walk from the hotel to the Javitz Center. Even on the 10-minute stroll you could feel the energy of this city. I’ll be back.

Photo Plus Expo – From the Zeiss Booth
I stopped by to see my friends at Zeiss during this year’s Photo Plus Expo in NYC. I wanted to show them the old Zeiss Planar 45/2 (Contax G) that I was shooting adapted with AF on the a7R II. They had a booth model posing so I snapped a few shots to see if this old lens was a good fit for portraiture compared to a more recent optic like the Loxia 50/2. I don’t have a comparison but I was very pleased with the results. No touch-ups here, just some color and b/w editing.

Let’s Fest! Austin City Limits Festival with the Sony a7R II, Zeiss Batis 85mm, Sony RX1 and Sony RX100IV
It’s that time of the year in Austin, TX. The weather is getting a bit cooler and so it is time to Fest. First up on the fall schedule is the iconic Austin City Limits Festival. Inspired by the PBS concert series of the same name, the festival is in its fourteenth year of existence and I was in attendance to cover for my tenth straight year.
