Getting the Shot 15: On the Roof

An HDR of the Taehwa River Grand Park

Back in the old days you could pretty much stroll into any new apartment and not encounter any sort of static. You may have gotten a few stares but that was mostly people thinking “I don’t remember any waygooks living here?” However, these days the ultra modern apartments now have modern coded-entry systems and guards that actually do more than sleep and watch TV.


Out with the Guys

The other night I had a great night out with a couple of great photographers, James Pawlowski and Ben Hobson  At any rate, it was great to be standing on top of a building near the petro chemical complex with two great photographers.


Buddha’s Birthday Review

I love this time of year. I am not Buddhist but I do feel a great sense of calm when I am at temples, but sadly depending on the time you go, calm might not be achieved. However, this year I had a really great experience and even a personal tour of Junggwangsa.


Where to Shoot: The Jujeon Coast

I must admit at times I really wonder who created the “12 scenic Sights of Ulsan” as some areas fall short of the mark. One being the view of the petrochemical complex at night. You can find that one on the top of Muryongsan, yet the view is kilometers away and not exactly the one they picture. With that being said, the Jujeon Coast and the Black Pebble Beach is quite nice.


Not What I was Expecting

As I posted yesterday, I “was” going out to get some shots of the cherry blossoms around Ulsan. I was, really… I was. However, after having a most amazing lunch with my wife and then some coffee, just as the sun was getting about right we saw black smoke. Initially we went to investigate but it was too far away to get to in the time that we had. However, after dropping off my wife, I did what any photographer with a 70-200mm f/2.8 in his bag would do… go check it out.


Where to Shoot! Weekend Edition

For this first post for what I hope to be a great series, I am going to give you a sort of mission and a place (if you are close by) to try and shoot. If you get something good, I will post if on next weeks edition. At any rate, the blossoms have sprung down here in Ulsan I am off to try and get some great shots. It is such an amazing time, but I think that these precious little flowers have been over shot in the typical sense. So your mission for this weekend is to check out the blossoms and find a new creative angle to shoot.


Getting the Shot 13: Walking Man

This shot sort of popped out at me while shooting some waterfowl along the Taehwa River in Ulsan. Some times you just have to turn around and look the other way to find a decent show. for this one, the aspects of what I wanted came to me instantly. I wanted the lines to reach someone walking or on a bike and I wanted it gritty and with a lot of contrast.

Food Shots: Bella Di Notte is Back

So the other night I got the hankering for some finely cooked Italian food. Now, this is hard to come by in Ulsan as there are many “Italian” restaurants or restaurants that serve “Italian” food but few actually make it properly. However, Bella Di Notte was not one of “those” restaurants and quickly gained a following here in Ulsan before it closed down last year. However, it is back now and closer to my place. I went there last night with my wife and got some shots to support an upcoming article for Ulsan Online.

At any rate, I love using my 50mm f/1.4 for food. Some is just something about the bokeh and the DOF that makes me love playing around with it. However, my wife hates it as she usually has to wait until I am finished shooting before she can eat. This was particularly painful last night as the food looked so amazing. Here are some of the shots that I got.
