Que Lo Cura

Having fun with a program to make video-like slide-shows.  This one is from photos I took of a performance from the Creative Writing Department at the San Francisco School of the Arts (SOTA).  Video clips courtesy of the SOTA Tech Department.

Music by Chloe Temtchine.

felted wool

I've always loved the vibrancy of felted wool.  I came across these felted wool balls at shop recently and couldn't resist getting a few.

holiday best

It was a rainy and cold Sunday morning in San Francisco so we were limited to natural indoor light.  Sara greeted me in her holiday dress and after a few smashed ornaments (they look just like balls) we moved on to the skin shot, followed by some fun on the piano and multiple attempts to snooker her into wearing a hood.  At one point, when the rain let up, we opened the front door to let in some light.  I stepped outside and had Sara at the bright yellow front door.  I guess she thought I was leaving because she waved goodbye and closed the door!  Really, though, she was a tremendously calm and focused toddler and was fascinated by the camera (thus all the looking-right-at-the-camera-in-a-serious-way-shots)!  The pink hood ones are my favorites.

j. jones

I decided to start taking tutoring sessions for photography. As a self-taught photographer, the learning process can be slow at times.  I've got some technical issues I need to address, and have been feeling a  bit stagnant due to these limitations. So, a friend hooked me up with J. Jones.  We had our first session today and it was quite enlightening.  Here are some pictures of him I took while we were exploring some different focusing options.    The shots were taken indoors in fairly low light.

the golden hour

I was helping my son with a photo project and we were scrambling to get his shots before sunset.  He was doing most of the photography, but I guess I took this one of him to check test the camera settings for him.  Anyway, I stumbled across the shot today while working on something else and was kind of startled at how lovely the light is at sunset.  I mean, everyone knows it's a great time to shoot but the focus of our shoot was on landscape/nature, so I'd overlooked this image previously.
