Marisa and Geordi, Manassas National Battlefield Park

I went on a short walk at Manassas National Battlefield Park this weekend with Marisa and Geordi. The place was absolutely littered with photographers! We timed the trip nicely with the sun – there’s nothing better than natural light, especially during Autumn. All photographs were made with a Canon 5DII and the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L II lens at ISO400. Visit J.Yi Photography on Facebook!

Sheri Miller, With Hearts in Her Eyes

I recently coordinated a shoot with model Sheri Miller (MM# 2556797). We wanted to have an outdoor shoot to take full advantage of the unusually pleasant weather and decided on a light fashion/editorial concept. After drafting out a few shots and setting a date we went for it! You can click on any of the thumbnails for a larger version. All images were created with a Canon 5D mark II and a Canon 70-200 f/2.8L II lens. We were able […]

Jammin’ Java, May 8, 2012 – Norman Rockwell, Derek Evry, 4ontheFloor

I had the pleasure of shooting Norman Rockwell for their Jammin’ Java show with Derek Evry and the Minnesota band The 4ontheFloor. It was an awesome show, Norman Rockwell gets better and more polished with each show they play. Derek Evry’s set was great as well and the touring band from Minnesota closed the show with a colossal bang. I’m going to keep this one short, here are the photos (you can click each photo to enlarge), enjoy! Norman Rockwell […]

Norman Rockwell… Rocks Well

Last night I had the pleasure of covering Norman Rockwell‘s show at The State Theatre in Falls Church, Virginia. One of the finest bands local to the Washington, D.C. area, the headliners were joined by fellow local acts The Independent and Mokey Doris. If you haven’t made it to a Norman Rockwell show yet… you really should. Click here for an epic gallery of Norman Rockwell from the show. I shot the show with my Canon 5D Mark II. While […]

Farewell, OV-103

Today was the final flight of Space Shuttle Discovery. Piggybacked (well… technically “mated” with o__o) on a modified Boeing 747, Discovery left Kennedy Space Center at daybreak and made a journey around D.C. before finally landing at Washington-Dulles International Airport. Discovery‘s final destination will be in the most excellent Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Center where it will replace the Space Shuttle Enterprise (which had actually never been in space… long story). I arrived at the Udvar-Hazy Center around 8:30 a.m. and joined […]

Northern Virginia CureSearch Walk 2011

CureSearch is a  national non-profit organization supporting childhood cancer research. The money raised by CureSearch is used to help fund the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), which is a network […]

The weather’s changin’ and the leaves will soon follow suit. Here are a few photos taken here and there to celebrate the coming change. Click on each for the larger version!
