Tower

architecture photography, street photography

Another older shot of mine with a Sony Cybershot. I didn’t edit this one either but I plan to as practice.

I am still learning how to edit raw photos in Lightroom and Photoshop. I still have a long way to go before I can call myself a decent photo editor. For now, I’m watching videos on the topic and photography in general. I’m focused on becoming a photographer but I’m open to explore wherever I go on this path of mine.

Peace for now,

David

Be Different

I love taking shots of subjects that don’t “move”. I grew up taking shots like this and never sought to capture things that are extremely popular subjects to take photos of. I don’t try to be different, I just am. Instead of trying hard to be different just be yourself. 

Stay true to who you truly are,

Exploring my life

architecture photography, street photography

Simply thinking but also acting. I’m spending more time simply being creative and doing things I want. I’m exploring all aspects of my creativity, while doing my best to ignore the numbers. 

This photo was taken at night in downtown Sacramento on a cool night. I was walking to back to my car and took a moment to capture the beauty of the Tower Bridge. I love the color and all the lights mixed with the darkness. 

It really helped represent my new work ethic. While others sleep I’m working and they are wasting time I’m working. Steadily improving in everyway while some downs here and there. I’m keeping my head up and not letting it get to me. 

Have fun!

Passion is a business

architecture photography, sports, street photography

No matter what your passion is, it’s apart of someone’s business. Eventually most of us want to make our passions apart of our work/business. The thing is sometimes money gets in the way. You may not produce the work you dont like because the client likes it or you’ll simply do work for money. 

Or you may just lose your passion after being fired, laid off, etc. We must ask ourselves why we started our work and what our passion truly means to us. We can’t allow anyone to take our passions away from us. 

I’m a big time basketball fan and d-league hopeful. Recently, my hometown team traded a superstar calibur player. He came back here to say goodbye and it was amazing to see the emotion he exposed as he choked on his words. The team used him as an escape goat for all their problems but he is not letting that ruin his passion for playing basketball nor for helping the people of this city. 

I’m sure he told himself it’s just how we do business. No matter the odds never lose your passion and keep charging on.

This photo was taken in downtown Sacramento at night. I was about to get in my car when I turned around to see this. I uploaded a black and white image but today I show it without editing. I wanted to capture the spirit of the team and the hotel that was showing the teams logo on its side. I love the lights on the top and all the colors that don’t seem to be overbearing. I’m trying to evolve as an artist and photographer. I will be attempting not to make all my images black and white. It will be a challenge but one I must take to improve.

Aim higher than the moon,

David
