Daily Photo – The Pixel 3 Phone

Here’s another photo from the workshop here in New Zealand. This one happened to be with the Pixel 3 phone. I am often quite amazed at how incredible the camera is on this phone. Maybe its most underrated feature (which seems a bit obvious when I point it out) is how convenient it is. Once you get into the world of photography, you are able to see nice scenes throughout the day. I don’t always have my big Sony with me, but I do always have my phone! This was exactly the case here when we were driving up to the Remarkables in our bus and I saw this scene. And yes, even though I had my Sony, I decided to take this one with the Pixel!

Japanese Children Emerging from an Egg

Borat Compares Horse to Man

Daily Photo – Japanese Children Emerging from an Egg

This is a fun quick Pixel shot I got while in Tokyo. Man, I love that camera so much. Here’s a quick tip for it (and I believe the iPhone and other cameras have something similar). Whenever I see something cool, the fastest way to get a photo is to double-click the power button. This gets the camera right into photo mode. Then, just push the volume up and you get a quick snap. Easy peasy!

The Old Street in Chengdu

Pixel 3 Phone

I’m convinced this is the best phone out there! I haven’t had time to write a full review yet… but, quickly: It’s awesome and it’s the best. No, they didn’t pay me to say that. Yes, I did get a free phone, but that has nothing to do with it… for reals.

Daily Photo – The Old Street in Chengdu

A lot of the “old feel” of China is being wiped clean and more and more of these old streets are lost every year. Finally, there is a movement to keep some of the old charms and keep a few streets here and there preserved. Chengdu is one of those “smaller” Chinese towns with over 7 million people, so it’s safe to say most of the city does not look like this.

Pixel 3 Phone for the Win!

Night Sight

If you have the Pixel Phone, be sure to try out the new “Night Sight” option that is under More. The photos it takes are just incredible. I think what is happening is it takes a little movie with like 100 frames and then combines them all into a noiseless, bright, colorful wonder!

I mean, come on… how great is this low-light (taken around midnight) shot in Tokyo. I actually had my big Sony A7r with me, but I didn’t have the best portrait lens on. This guy looked so radical and I didn’t want to miss his photo. He was very confused about why I held my phone instead of the huge camera in his other hand… that is, until he saw the final result!

St. Basil’s Cathedral

Pixel 3 Phone

I upgraded from the Pixel 2 and I’m happy I did! This one has been absolutely fantastic. One of my favorite things is the little charging dock. It looks kind of like… hmmm… how do I describe it. Well, let me put a picture below. What I think is cool about it is that, even with a case on, you can just set your phone there and it charges… no need to plug it in. And it acts like a photo-frame while there, showing me family photos while it happily charges.

It was a perfect day in the Red Square in Moscow for photo taking! This was my very first time in Russia and I absolutely loved it. I found it to be such an interesting-crazy place. There is something about that Russian mind I cannot quite put my finger on, but I think it is interesting. Besides all these hot tourist spots, our videographer Olya took us around with all her nutty friends to see all sorts of places tourists don’t normally get to see. It was great fun, and I’ll share more of those photos soon!

Robin Williams in San Francisco

New About Me Page!

I made a bunch of changes over to the “bio” area of the About Me page here on the site. I never quite know what to say there… now I have a bullet point list of all kinds of stuff.

Daily Photo – Robin Williams in San Francisco

Man, I really loved that Robin Williams guy. I just watched a documentary about him on the plane that was super sad for some reason. There’s not a lot of guys like that out there. We need more of them! It’s interesting too how a lot of these extreme creatives end up committing suicide. I am not nearly that creative, but I am, objectively, kind of creative. But I’ve never even had the slightest suicidal feelings, which turns out to be a rather good thing for me and people around me!
