Food Photography: Strawberry “Dessert” (Fuji X100)

Tried a bit of food photography in my DIY lightbox. Couldn’t find a basket of pinterest-approved rustic veggies or a hipster-loved mason jar full of god knows what. Instead, I crumbled nilla wafers, sliced strawberries, and dolloped a few spoons of inexpensive canned whip cream. My backdrop was a wooden board found in the garage.

Not bad!

My New Citizen Watches – Fuji X100

My Christmas Presents from Livi

Livi always gets me amazing presents, but this year was very special. These watches are a perfect statement of the personal style I’ve crafted over the years: simple, timeless, and subtle. Can’t wait to see how the leather softens and molds into the shape of my wrists.

Amiibo Photoshoot: Mario, Little Mac, Samus, and More! – Canon 7D

 

Took out my Canon 7D and 75-300mm lens and photographed some Amiibos. All of this was shot around the house using ambient light and my cellphone’s flashlight as fill. Ran color correction in Lightroom and that’s about it.

Blue Bottle Coffee – San Francisco, CA (Polaroid Automatic Land Camera 360)

 

I can photograph a person outside with relative ease but inside? Inside “street shooting” makes me nervous. I flinch. I double-think. I don’t shoot at all. Sometimes I think I’m being polite but really, I’m just missing the shot.

Here, I did not miss the shot. After a day of work interning at The Veteran’s Equity Center, my group members and I stopped by Blue Bottle in the South of Market district. They waited for their coffee and I waited for this lady to lower her gaze. She was reading quite intensely. From the giant “FRENCH” typed on the cover I assumed it was a tour guide or a language book.

I just love the diagonal tilt of the lighting. Feels very Edward Hopper-esque, only closer. The line across her face isn’t her hair – it’s mine. It was stuck inside the bellows, just behind the lens, and appeared in every subsequent frame. Does that count as a photobomb?

WERKIN’ At The Car Wash (Yea!) – Sunnyvale, CA (Fuji X10)

One boring night in 2012 I stood up in bed, scratched my head and said, dammnit, I miss street shooting. So I went out and alleviated my artistic thirst. I drove around Sunnyvale at 12am and happened upon this brightly colored DIY car wash.one_12 one_11 one_10 one_9 one_8 one_7 one_6 one_3
