The wife and I recently met up again with Desirae, a good friend and blogger who specializes in vintage fashion. We spent some time strolling through Golden Gate Park with Suki in tow, chatting it up and shooting some photos. Since this was a casual shoot, I decided to experiment a little more than usual.

Fuji X100 | 1/60th sec f/5.6 ISO200 On the heels of my last post, another film-related adventure! The camera above is an Ansco Cadet, a nifty little 127 format camera that was made in the late 1950s.

Nikon D300s + Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8 at 50mm f/2.8 ISO250 1/60 second I don’t do very much black and white, but a shot of a 1938 San Francisco light rail train is just begging to be converted to grayscale, suffer from some clipped blacks and highlights, and have some vignetting applied to it. I’m fascinated […]Read More San Francisco Light Rail
Man, I scored a gig with an awesome and beautiful model yesterday by the name of Barbie. Have you heard of her? Ok, what really happened was that the weather was terrible for the city and landscape photography I planned for last night. But the photography bug bites in all weather conditions, so I had […]Read More My First Model Shoot
