Stanley, 21. I'm currently shooting with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II.
For travel I often use a 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 L lens or 24-105mm f/4 L IS. However, if I have more time to set up my shots, I'd rather use my 50mm f/1.8 or Sigma 150mm Macro.

Launching Akwamag

Dear Friends,

Our team has developed a new technology to help solve the problem of hard water for homeowners. If you live in California, Nevada, Arizona, and many other places across the US, you’re probably familiar with hard water and its effects… it’s not fun to say the least. What we’ve created is an affordable, plug-in water softener unit that eliminates the hard water scale that often mars household fixtures and reduces the life of appliances. After much thought, we named it the Akwamag! 

I’m asking for your help to get the word out about Akwamag. We’ve launched a campaign on Indiegogo to raise funds so we can start production. 

There are many ways you can help, and I want to thank you in advance for your participation in this critical phase. Every friend, tweet, and Facebook mention you make is vital to our success. Below are a few ways to get involved: 

Twitter: Tweet about Akwamag! 
Suggested tweet: I’m fixing my hard water in an eco-friendly way with @Akwamag! Find out how you can get involved:
Facebook: Become a fan of Akwamag on Facebook. 
Find us here:

Contribute to our Indiegogo campaign.
Our campaign mission control is located here: 
My team and I are offering the Akwamag as a perk to our campaign. If you have the ability to contribute you could be one of our very first customers! Delivery is slated for July 2014.

Learn more by visiting our website: WWW.AKWAMAG.COM
Thank you for your support! I’m excited to be able to bring this product to market to help homeowners use this technology to combat hard water, protect our water sources from becoming tainted with excess salt, and to conserve water.

One Week

In one week I’ll finally be going home. After over half a year of not touching my camera, I hope to take advantage of the beauty of home. I absolutely need more sunrise experiences, perhaps some food (if I eat anything nice), and definitely cars. Most importantly, I’ll be reunited with my old external hard drive that has thousands of unedited photos on it. Photos from Vietnam might be popping up in the near future, there are probably some from Japan… I don’t even remember.

In the meantime, I’ve got some from various parts of Europe that I’ll edit when I’m not studying. Bring it, Math and Econ.
