I’m just now processing through my selects from the days we spent there; here’s an image made from a hillside overlooking the town. Next I’m working on stitching a sunrise panorama facing the other direction … it looks amazing, stay tuned! Click for a larger version

My Move to Mirrorless

Nat-Coalson-Dubrovnik-Example
I’ve been using the Sony NEX-7 for most of my photography lately and really loving it! I might start to move away from the full format DSLR systems if the development in the mirrorless lineup continues. I’m writing a more comprehensive review of the Sony NEX system and article on my camera choices, stay tuned!
