When you've got one of your best friends, some lights, and time for a bit of fun... these are the results! Thanks Jeel for indulging in some low light portraits!
Something I love about San Francisco's lifestyle is the crazy amount of transportation options you have as a professional (or anyone looking to get around without a car). Between taking one of our beautiful bridges in, the MUNI busses, cable cars, street trains, underground BART, or your own two feet, it's easy to get around.
Ive been itching to do a themed shoot around San Francisco transportation around the Embarcadero, so I was stoked to collaborate with Jesse for a classic, timeless project. Check out our results!
I also wanted to give a special thanks to Jeel for being the third team mate in this excellent set. She did a lot of great work directing and assisting with light!
Engagement sessions seems to come in waves, so I better get ready for the next one! I've had a few requests to shoot in Golden Gate Park, Treasure Island and Sutro Baths, all popular romantic places. My beautiful friend, Jeel and I toured San Francisco on a beautiful, sunny day and tested all sorts of light at these destinations. I can safely say that after this session, we can control lumination nicely with minimal equipment even when conditions provide harsh or dimming light during the lovely golden hour. Here are our results:
Fashion blogger, Jake Bordeleau and I teamed up for a Valentine's Day shoot to highlight her outfit and jewelry (she is a Stella & Dot stylist). The results are exciting because they are just as warm, romantic, and retro-feeling as we wanted. This was a great experience for me personally, because I heavily practice natural lit photography, and these were all done with artificial light indoors at night. Editing was challenging, but I found that slight hand-colored feel that I see when looking at antique photos. Take a look:
