Under Golden Light

I deeply enjoy exploring during the golden hour. I always let loose and pay attention to every sbubject to see how the light affects them. I love the way that shadows are displayed on this building and tthe softness of the left side in contrast to how dark and harsh the other side is. It’sContinue reading “Under Golden Light”

Rising sun

Caught this while on my daily walk, the new neighborhood has a lot more buildings despite being deeper into Elk Grove. 

Just Create

As I explored the depths of my mind to make a decision that will impact my present and future. I took the time to take photos that I like. In doing so I was able to calm myself which helped me think. I proclaimed to myself that I wanted to take photos and write aboutContinue reading “Just Create”

One step at a time

Not focusing on the end goal. It’s much harder to do than one would think. Our mentors did it before but we have to learn to control our minds to progress.  Everyday, I am taking little baby steps up the staircase. Never going back down or to the side. There is only up for meContinue reading “One step at a time”

Lines and learning from mistakes

Are so important in photography. In the beginning I wasn’t paying attention to vertical lines present in my shots. Until I watched a video by Jared Polin who discussed this.

No Excuses: Taking shots in any weather. 

It actually rained here for the first time in quite a while. It’s good as we are having a drought. Still managed to take shots while it was raining off and on. If you are afraid to hurt your camera then wrap it in a plastic bag and get your ass outside.  No Excuses!  AContinue reading “No Excuses: Taking shots in any weather. “

You can manipulate it to the point you can control it. The basics point is you must study light.

Dedicate time to build yourself 

The only way to improve our lives and to improve our work is to take time to work on ourselves. Our work is our reflection. If we are angry it shows, when we are depressed it shows, when we are in love it shows, etc. We have to improve ourselves as our work typically willimproveContinue reading “Dedicate time to build yourself “
