DSLR Or Smartphone Cams?

As smartphone producers continue to up their game, photo enthusiasts are all asking the same question: has the dSLR camera become obsolete? Unless you’re a professional photographer or an extremely dedicated amateur/hobbyist, the answer might be yes.

Odds were defied when Nokia released a 41MP PureView camera within the Lumia 1020 earlier this year. To compare smartphone capabilities, the iPhone 5s is complete with 8MP and the Samsung Galaxy S4 is loaded with 13MP.

Now, in contrast, the Nikon D7000 carries the power of 16.2MP while the Canon 7D offers the power of 18MP.

During a recent adventure to the west coast, I brought my Nikon D7000. However, it stayed in my suitcase almost the entire trip. The only time I used it was to capture some pre-ceremony images for my best friend’s wedding. After that, my iPhone 5s seemed like a much more logical option considering the results (see photos below) and lack of extra weight to carry around.

What’s your take? Are dSLR creators in trouble or do you believe the industry will balance itself at some point?

Vegas Weddings: Viva Las Ramesars

Pre-ceremony photos are always a good exercise. Plus, the objects are usually stationary, so the creative freedom is like icing on the wedding cake! I thoroughly enjoyed creating some memories for two amazing human beings as they start their forever together.

Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Ramesar.

Family Portraits With Baby On Board

There's nothing like capturing family photos for a young couple expanding their family. These two are a great example of true love. Big sister to-be, Lilly is also excited for the arrival of her younger sibling. 

Thanks to BJ and Rachel for allowing me to freeze some moments in time.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Pinellas County

It was an honor to be a part of such a worthwhile cause last Saturday. Hundreds upon hundreds of supporters came piled into St. Petersburg's Vinoy Park to "make strides" against the disease.

After sorting through more than 100 team photos from the day, here are a few of my favorite cuts.

Stay tuned to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Pinellas Facebook page for all the captures from the day.

Glee Covers Worth A Listen

With tonight's "Glee says goodbye to Finn" episode on deck, it was a no-brainer to share some of my favorite covers from the hit show. 

I'll admit I was one of the "haters" when the show first aired, but have become quite the "Gleek" enthusiast and buy covers from the show regularly. After all, I am never quiet about my love for pop music.

In short, "all I am give Glee (covers) a chance."

Darren Criss sings The Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" in a marriage proposal to on-screen boyfriend, Chris Colfer

Jacob Artist and Melissa Benoist duet with Aerosmith's "Crazy" and Britney Spears' "U Drive Me Crazy"

The cast gives a stellar performance of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way"

Demi Lovato and Naya Rivera offer a catchy rendition of The Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun"

Male cast members do MJ's "Man in the Mirror" justice

Lea Michele does work on Madonna's "Like A Prayer"

Naya Rivera performs The Zutons' "Valery" 


And last, but not least, one of the show's most notable performances includes this semi-a capella version of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin"
