Why We Switched to Sony A7III

SuperFresh, New Brunswick, NJ (Sony A7III)

Well, like so many others who’ve already made the switch to Sony, we have also made the switch.  Actually, it would be more accurate to say we switched again. After shooting Olympus cameras for the last 3 plus years, we’ve switched to the Sony A7III mirrorless, and we couldn’t be happier.

Queen Ann’s Revenge

Queen Ann's Revenge - commercial fishing vessel

 

This is the image I took of the Queen Ann’s Revenge back in December last year (2017), originally posted without a title.  I’ve since learned that this ship is indeed the Queen Ann’s Revenge, commercial fishing vessel registered in Point Pleasant, NJ.  Surprisingly, I received some disturbing news the other day…

Jersey City : Skyscraper Capital

 

We had the opportunity to visit Jersey City, the Skyscraper Capital of NJ, this past weekend and decided to get there early and hit our favorite places: Exchange Plaza and NewPort. 
BTW, if you haven’t been to Exchange Plaza or NewPort, you owe it to yourself to visit; the view of lower Manhattan is particularly beautiful and not to be missed (and the Jersey City Skyline ain’t too bad either!).

Viñales, Cuba : A Timeless Gem

Cuban Farm house in Viñales.

In our recent trip to Cuba, one of the first places we decided to visit was Viñales, about 2 1/2 hours southwest of Habana, near Pinar Del Rio.    

We wanted to see the famous mogotes, the limestone “haystack” mountains so prominently featured in the area.  So off we went with Pedro, our chofer

Cuba – A Photographic Journey

La Bandera Cubana (The Cuban Flag)

Cuba.  The word evokes images of classic cars, ancient crumbling facades and warm smiling faces.  

But Cuba is more than a cliche…it is a country at a crossroad, with a people tired of being regarded as an anachronism and yearning to catch up with the world at large they perceive thru modern media.

Compatible Flash : The Eyes Have It

Compatible Flash: The Eyes Have It!

We got the call Thursday evening to turn this one around quickly…so we agreed to Friday after work. to shoot this Studio apartment.  No problem, I thought, I’ll just recharge the camera batteries, load up the camera bags, make sure we have the light stands, tripods, compatible flash, etc., load the car and head on up to Jersey City.  And off we went…

Fresh Grocer, Key Food, now SuperFresh…Change is Good!

This is our most photographed building in New Brunswick, NJ.  Over the space of 4 years, the tenants changed several times, and each time, the property managers, DEVCO (New Brunswick Development Corp), asked us to photograph it…again.

While this is good for business, the real point of this post is to demonstrate how things change over time…and to reiterate: change is good.
