sometimes, i post

hey guys! (it’s matt). with kate up here posting like crazy i figure it’s about time for me to make my 2nd appearance on the altmix blog. sadly we don’t have any new images to post but i do want to address something i came across in the past week or so- a camera lens.

now this isn’t just any camera lens for a digital slr, but the most ridiculous lens that there has ever been. (the image below is thanks to engadget)


i mean, doesn’t that camera look like a flee that managed to hang onto the back of that green beast?! sigma (is there any question as to who created this thing?) has recently unveiled their 500 mm f 2.8 lens for a staggering 25k- yeah, $25,000! evidently sigma is the first ever to offer a 500 mm lens with a super wide 2.8 aperture. even still, who in their right mind would buy such a thing. not i. and for the majority of you who have no idea what i’m talking about, this lens can take really good pictures from reeeeally far away- thats all you need to know. but if you want more, here’s the link.

on another note be sure to check the website in the next couple days if you’re interested in seeing some more of the shots from this past weekend with sally and andrew. we’ve got some great ones and we promise to have the new album up in the gallery by friday!

we’re also really excited about this coming weekend as we’ll be shooting an engagement session for another awesome couple, bonnie and david. and this is why they’re awesome: they’re registered at rei- because for their honeymoon they’re going to through-hike the appalachian trail!!! yeah, that is amazing… if you want to learn more about these guys here is a link to their great wedding website, davidandbonnie2008!

hope everyone is having a great week and we can’t wait to talk with you soon!

i grew up in a small town outside of cleveland; you could say i lived in the actual buckle of the snow belt. my little brother and i would get excited when the snow was “higher than our hearts!”

today in atlanta, it’s snowing. though the snow is barely enough to cling to my hair i feel a new kinship with the city. of course i needed to document this milestone, so pulling out my camera i braced myself and opened a window to take some shots. (are you kidding me? did you really think i was going to go outside in that cold?) i snapped a few quick pictures, slowed down the shutter and snapped a few more. The slower shutter made it look more like a blizzard, more like my childhood, so i’ll share that one with you.


after shutting out the cold, offensive air, i logged into blogland looking for warmer clothing. i’ve officially decided i want a cowl scarf to wear with every outfit. i mean, don’t you!?

in our world of photography, we’re excited to welcome a new camera to our family! she (yes, “she”) came today and we are looking forward to getting to know each other this weekend! keep an eye here for her debut!
