Photography

Photography is my biggest passion.

 

The best place on the web to find inspiration without any doubt is the  www.500px.com site.  I can easily spend hours in my ipad browsing the amazing collection of pictures  you find in this site.

 

As far as equipment goes, I am a big Canon fan.   Last year I finally did the upgrade from a cropped sensor to a full frame  camera.  The ability to capture photos in very low light at high ISO levels, opened new possibilities to my shooting experience.  The high dynamics ranges when shooting HDR is also a very big advantage.  I chose the Canon 6D over the 5D Mark III due to its weight, overall size and the  WIFI capabilities.

 

Another big acquisition to my collection of lenses was probably the best lens in the Canon line-up.  The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens.  A f/2.8 "all the way" lens with a very diverse range (specially when combined with a full frame sensor).  It is by far the sharpest and most versatile lens in my collection.

 

Formula 1

From March trough November, during every race weekend, me and boys wake up early in the morning to turn on the volume and enjoy the sound of the F1 engines.

 

My favorite driver is Fernando Alonso.  Two-times world champion with Renault, currently the number 1 driver for the scuderia Ferrari.

 

I had the opportunity to attend my first F1 race in 2012.  Circuit of the Americas was the circuit I visited.  Great track located in an ever greater city, Austin TX.

 

Golf

Golf is the other sport I follow every weekend.  Nothing better than watching Tiger Woods on a Sunday afternoon.

 

I am lucky to live in a city with so many wonderful golf courses.    So far I have played in more than 20 different courses in the great Houston Area.

 

Two favorites that stand out from the crowd are Redstone (home of the PGA Shell Open) and for 8 years in a road  the most beautiful golf course in Texas, Whispering Pines Golf Club (located 70 miles north of Houston in Trinity, Tx).
