First [X]Press photo assignment

I shot my first assignment for the [X]Press, SF State's student Newspaper, yesterday. I had fun shooting the assignment even though, as you can tell, the images I came away with are no the most exciting. The story was about classes being added to the school's schedule at the last minute. I guess I just like shooting daily assignments.

MJC New Sign

A quick enterprise shot for the Modesto Bee of the new sign going up at Modesto Junior College's track. This was just a fun backlight situation that I couldn't pass up.

Stranger Furniture

It's a new year, and I feel inspired to blog more and more frequently!

I'm still going through photos from 2009, so here's a set that Adm and I both did for our friend and furniture maker Bill Stranger. Bill made a bed with side table for a client so we took it to the parking lot behind his studio to photograph them in Altadena. Although the backdrop gave a nice industrial look, it was pretty cluttered so we had to figure out how to keep the light off of the back drop while overpowering the sun and highlighting the wood. Additionally, it was no easy feat moving the bed around since it was pretty heavy, and we had to be careful to not damage it.

Details (Bill always inscribes his work):

New Dreams

I added these two new images to my dreams porfolio on my website. I haven't had much of a chance to shoot for fun, and now I am trying to get back to picking up my camera just to put a smile on my face.

Mama Tried... Merle Haggard

I never thought that I would ever get a chance to photograph Merle Haggard, but I did and he was amazing. He still sounds just like his records. I photographed him for the Modesto Bee and you can check out the rest of the photos here.
