Exploring new locations

I always like to drive around and check out some new locations for my shooting and new clients , especially for engagement portrait. Today doesn’t have assignment and I decided to just totally kick back and have a little road trip. Found some interesting locations and I always like the funky color .

Keep driving… keep driving,, keep driving,, Woo,, found this first spot !!!

Very lovely combination of a bakery shop and this bench in front of it

Isn’t that nice after the business ( the pre-wedding henna party photoshoot ), I still have the whole sunday for some sightseeing while I am still in San Diego ….It was all about sunshine, beaches and my complimentary rental convertible mazda mx-5. My return flight was 4:00pm, not a whole lot of time, so I woke up really early at 7:00am. After the hotel breakfast, I drove straight to the Conronada Beach which is just about 10 mins from downtown. Still very early, not a lot of people yet, as you can see in the pictures, but it was so peaceful. After that , I drove to the La Jolla Beach and nearby area which I spent most of the time.

Went to Tomales Bay Oyster Farm BBQ which is located in Marshall, approximately 50 miles north of SF. Fresh and Juicy, So Delicious. Then we went to Petaluma where we got lost and who cares and we found a pretty cool location with old cart for some fun shots with my friends. Again I pulled Yuko and Jun and asked them to be my model again for some couple shots . Not only couple shots, but also 2 guy friends some some posed rusty feeling portrait. Using my little Fuji f50fd again . After that we went to Twin Peaks in San francico.

I like to be inspired all the time to help my creativity in photoshoot, the academy of art university, SF annual spring show is definitely the best place to go to get a lot of inspiration in different aspects.

They have different sections showcase all students’ painting , photographs, industrial design, computer graphic, advertising…… I was bombarded with so many great ideas, and the “Fast Food Last Supper” is definitely my favourite of the night, so creative, and so hilarious, I wish I couldn hang this art work in my living room, so funny. Here are some pictures I shot with my iphone, little grainy.

Have been staying home whole day saturday processing Janelle and Russell’s wedding pictures, so, time to have some fresh air today (Sunday).

As my friend Mayumi is joining the Bay to Breakers, my buddies and I decided to wait her and cheer her up at the finish line and hangout in Sausalito, just kick back and enjoy the weather outside. You can see the pictures, she is the girl with the whole sushi table on her, very creative.

I think I’ve been doing a lot of engagement portrait recently and is all in my blood, when we went out, I can’t help using my little Fuji compact camera (Fuji f50fd) to shoot some portrait for our friends Yuko and Jun, they are cute interesting couple and Jun always made us laugh as we always tried to embarrass him.
We walked around the pier and end at the Lapperts ice cream shop

While we were hanging out in Sausalito, I found some great scene and setup that can be used as my next engagement shooting location.

















The quality of this little Fuji camera actually is pretty good.

It was such a treat to myself for a 3 days 4th of July vacation @ Lake Tahoe with some good friends. As I remembered, the last time I didn’t have to work continuously for 3 days was back in Feb this yr.. I really need a break. So… No serious photoshooting, No client interview, No drafting contract, No Emailing, No Computer, try to force myself to relax a bit.

We totally have 9 people , reserved a vacation house in lake Tahoe Northstar from Friday to Sunday. Friday morning we left early from the bay area at around 7:00am, drove for 3 hrs and just be the lake on time for lunch, had some walk near the lake . After we checked in our house, we hit the casino for a buffet and then a little evening golfing. The 2nd day was an intensive mountain biking day. Dame, I missed this mountain biking feeling, it was so much fun and exhausted. The last day we kinda took it easy, went to the golf club for a simple lunch and played some golf at this awesome driving range, great view as you can see in the pictures.

As I said, no serious photography in this trip, all pictures were taken by my little Fuji f50fd compact point-an-shoot , except the group pictures everyone lined up and pretended to hit the ball , used my friend’s Canon XTi.

Awesome trip , excited and had a lot of fun.

Top 5 golf players in the Lake Tahoe :P

Beautiful golf club that we took this group pictures
