Here’s my shot of #eclipse2017 during totality. We drove down to Kinkaid Lake, near Murphysboro, Illinois. Managed to avoid some of the crowds of nearby Carbondale, while still having 2:38s of totality to enjoy. It was an unforgettable experience.

I recently reviewed the Canon 50mm f1.8 STM lens. The 50mm f1.8 II was the first lens I got after buying my DSLR with a kit lens. I really like the 50mm focal length, and it's an inexpensive lens for the image quality it offers. I recently upgraded to the newer Canon 50mm f1.8 STM, and I'm impressed with the improvements Canon made while still keeping the fairly low price. Watch my full review below.

Sometimes when you do something long enough, things can fall into place almost accidentally. I consider Vicent Laforet one of the most talented photographers today, so the beauty in this video is by no means a surprise.

What struck me when watching this, however, is how sometimes nature can offer incredible gifts to those who just take a few moments away from the hustle and bustle to observe.

Lately I've been posting photos more frequently over on Instagram. Today I finished my set from a New Orleans trip back in January. I created an album on the Radiant Photography blog with all the images from the trip.

Radiant Photography added 9 new photos to the album: Brookfield Zoo — at Brookfield Zoo.

Earlier this summer, our family had the pleasure of spending the day at the Brookfield Zoo just outside of Chicago. I don't include zoo shots in my portfolios, but I wanted to share these because I liked how they turned out.

This was one of the first times I was able to take out my 100-400L (version 1) lens. I came away really impressed with the color saturation and the sharpness this lens has to offer.

If you haven't been to the Radiant Photography website recently, you should check it out. I've added new portfolio images and have a few new articles as well.

Just posted a new image to the website: Puerta.
