Bam Bam in Illinois #1

Bam in the Kitchen

I’m getting to the point where I can start bringing out my cameras again. You can tell I’m rusty from the focus point on this shot. But I wanted a new photo of her out there since it’s been ages. She hates the phone but still poses for the big ass camera. There’s something in the iPhones that freaks animals out. You think I’m loony? Watch this video. Anyway, I’ve put my camera in the living room instead of a closet and will be using it more and more because besides the dog it’s the one thing that relaxes me and takes me away from the computer. Until it brings...

I got to do a quick little shoot for my friend’s daughter. I need to shoot more but with work and the puppy it’s been tough!...

Catch with Bam Bam

A video posted by Jason DeFillippo (@jpd) on Feb 18, 2016 at 9:07am PST One of the many things I love about this puppy is that I have a reason to pull out my cameras and take photos. I was just playing fetch with her this morning and thought why not do a slo-mo of her coming down the hall and boom, here it is. I have a lot of other video from my DSLR that I can’t get into Instagram so it’ll go in the big “growing up” video montage that I’ll make sometime before I’m dead. I have video of Bam and Ava playing from almost every single...

An Evening with Tim Ferriss

On Thursday I went to see my friend Tim Ferriss do his first live podcast at the Troubadour here in Los Angeles. I had to come home to the puppy early but I got to see a bunch of the show and took a few photos for those of you that couldn’t be there. Hopefully he’ll do more in the future and you should definitely check them out. Reminded me of the good old Diggnation days!...

The Foggy Dew

We had a lovely foggy morning in the San Fernando Valley this week and I do love me some trees in fog so I was going hog wild. I’ll be printing this puppy as a large format print....

In-n-Out

So, this is what I shot today while walking around with my new Nikon D810. It’s just a crappy sign at one of the local burger joints but if you right click here and select Save As… and zoom into the full res (it’s a 3.5 meg file so probably best not to do it on your phone) you can see that it’s a thing of beauty. I shot this on aperture priority at 200 ISO at f/4 with my Nikkor 50mm 1.8D lens. Just a quick shot while I was out grabbing coffee. It took me 2 years to save up for this thing. I hoarded away tons of...

Poopcasting FTW

I won this little guy for entering a contest on The Morning Dump podcast. It’s run by Jordan Cooper who also does Tech Douchebags and Internet Outrage Machine, both of which I’ve been a guest on. They’re not huge podcasts but they are all well produced and entirely entertaining. So when Jordan was running an April Fools contest I entered. I spent $25 on my entry to win an $8 toy. But the thing is it wasn’t about winning anything. It’s about supporting shows I like. Small podcasters need support. It’s that simple. If I like a show I sign up for their Patreon page, buy their t-shirts, and use...
