Exploring Reno & Boomtown

On a whim, I decided to drive to Reno, Nevada a few days after the new year. My best friend tagged along and we had a nice but frustrating adventure. Enjoyed the weather out there but the street lights and homelessness in Reno are no joke. It’s not on the level of San Francisco butContinue reading “Exploring Reno & Boomtown”

Experimenting with Drone Photography

A shot of the parking structure at Cosumnes River College. Was heading out with my friends when one of them allowed me to use their drone to shot some shots last year. I truly experimented with what kinds of shots that I wanted while still exploring the limitations of the drone itself. Wondering which directionContinue reading “Experimenting with Drone Photography”

Focusing In

It’s been a while since my last trip thanks mainly to the pandemic. I took a break with my friend and went exploring in Palo Alto & San Jose. It was fun exploring Stanford University for the first time. There wasn’t a lot of people which made it easier to take shots of the architecture.Continue reading “Focusing In”

Goals

A shot of my friend exploring art and trying to find an exit. This was a send off trip as he shortly left to join the military. So this is a great photo to represent a good time and to showcase his departure. Might try to re-edit this shot and work on the walls. MyContinue reading “Goals”

Challenge

A shot of the Golden Gate Bridge that I took earlier this year. It was my first time walking across the bridge and the area around it. I had a lot of fun and it was a true test of combating my fears. I managed to successfully fight my fear of heights and walked across.Continue reading “Challenge”

New Places

Shot of the entrance to the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco. I was able to take this shot as it was right after it opened. Luckily for me not a lot of people were there and I was taking one of my friends there for the first time. It’s a simple architecture shot ofContinue reading “New Places”

Direction

A building with a cool design in San Francisco CA that I helped to walk past on my way to a bus stop. I cropped the shot to make the building look bigger and to try to get rid of a few unnecessary details. I like this shot but every time I edit photos fromContinue reading “Direction”

Enjoying Life

Forgot that I took this shot but it’s from a trip to San Francisco last year. I took several shots of this building but this one is clearly the best. It’s simple but it feels “right” to me for some reason. I like the flag on the left, however, would like to remove the buildingContinue reading “Enjoying Life”

Pop Pop

An interesting building I captured during one of my trips to San Francisco. I wish I could go back and try to make the left side of the building pop a bit more. Also, might try to learn how to take out some of the noise at the bottom of the shot thru Photoshop. MyContinue reading “Pop Pop”

Connections

A little bridge to cross over to Japantown in San Francisco. I’ve always wanted to capture this area before but homeless people flock to the ramp so I always avoided crossing this bridge. I was able to nab this shot after the area was cleaned up a little bit. Anyway, I really like the shadowsContinue reading “Connections”
