Staying on a Ranch

We’re currently staying on a horse ranch near Portland, nearly a month into our giant road trip. We didn’t know what to expect when we booked the place, but it’s absolutely incredible.

The boys have really enjoyed exploring the place, and we’ve really enjoyed photographing them!

Today I wanted to share a few of the shots I’ve taken here, with a bit of a twist. Many of them will be straight out of camera – no editing done. I don’t usually do that, since unedited photos often don’t look great. But one reason we’ve switched over to the Fujifilm system of cameras recently was for the look of the out-of-camera files. So I figured sharing a few would be helpful to anyone looking into Fujifilm cameras!

Destination: Costa Rica!

Well, we hinted at this trip in our newsletter (Are you part of that? If not sign up here! We’d love to have you on board, and it’s free!). Now the time has come! In just a couple days we’ll hope on a plane with our two little boys, and fly south to Costa Rica!

It’s been over a year since we took a big trip, so we were itching to get back out there, and let Oliver have his first taste of international travel. We have loved South America, but haven’t yet checked out Central America. After hearing so much great stuff about Costa Rica, we pretty much just picked a spot, bought the tickets, and planned the trip in a few short weeks. No sense dilly dallying right?

So here’s what we’re going to get up to!

Sony Releases New Pro Lenses

Last fall I wrote about why I wasn’t buying the new Sony a7R2. My biggest complaints weren’t actually about the camera, but the lack of pro lenses (specifically a 24-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f.2.8).

Well, Sony has delivered.

They announced a new series of professional lenses called “G Master” (which sounds like a new rapper). This new lineup of lenses are supposed to offer the best performance and optical quality of all Sony lenses.
