While I was waiting for my friends, I happened to choose this church as our meet up spot. I took several shots in my attempt to capture the whole building. This was the result of my best effort. I see now that I can go back and edit the photo to be lighter, however, I like how gritty the building looks. So I can honestly say that I am satisfied with this shot.

Going back to San Francisco on Friday and can’t wait to explore the city again with my camera. I will be doing a lot of walking but will probably stay in two general areas of the city. Been using a high incline on a treadmill every other day in order to better prepare myself for the streets of San Francisco as last time I went it was a bit of a struggle. I find it much easier to pack for the trip this time around.

I will be updating this post on Friday, I’ll probably be in my hotel room when I do so. Hopefully, I would have taken a lot of photos by then. Anyway, enjoy your life.

 

Peace!

Exploring

I find myself doing things that I don’t normally do in order to improve myself. I’ve been spending a good amount of time with my two friends. This shot was taken in a field in one of my friend’s neighborhood. I’m drawn to machines and steel. I like to take shots like these especially when there are wires and the weather is perfect. This shot has a dark feeling to it like it’s showcasing an upcoming storm.

Wanted to capture some of the birds that were hanging out but I did manage to capture one in flight and a few on the top. Now that I’ve studied this shot a bit more, it happens to remind me of Hitchcock’s Birds. It’s a film that I enjoyed especially since I watched it with my grandma who first watched it when she was a little girl.

I’m exploring my options and taking time to truly think.

Words are nice but action is better,

Practiced street photography while walking around aimlessly one day. It’s a genre that I do enjoy but I rarely take photos of graffiti because I don’t know what a lot of it means. I like how the ink really stands out. I like how I edited it but I’m sure I can still improve the shot in more than one way.

Doing my best to hang on while improving my life.

 

Take the first move,

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

A simple shot based on my influences in cinema. It’s an older shot but shows how I experiment with light and shadows. Took this with a Sony Cybershot.

Back after a long time away. Won’t be taking that long of a break again. Been working and adjusting to going to college as well. It’s a challenge I’m doing my best to juggle. It’s been one week so far and I handled it alright.

I have until the 7th to decide if I need to get rid of some things in order to be a better version of myself. Recently, bought Photoshop and Lightroom so I’ll be able to explore editing more. I have a bunch of faw files waiting for me to play with them on my desktop. I’m looking forward to doing so tomorrow afternoon. I’m commiting myself to my path and eliminating options to focus while also remaining open enough to allow myself to progress naturally through life.

 

That’s it for now. Peace!

Exploring Life

Exploring while looking up. I took this with my Cybershot I believe, however, would like to take a new shot of a similar subect with my Nikon D3300. I think I made it too dark which is rare for me to say. Anyway, it’s an older picture and I can see very thing I can do to make this shot better next time. Surely but slowly I’ll improve till the day I die.

Working in retail gives me a lot of time to observe human behavior. A lot of what I’ve seen is negative as if people don’t know how to be respectful to others, products, or the employees of the store. I find so many half eaten things in random places like half eaten donuts in the freezer, half drank Gatorade behind cottage cheese, etc. Besides that, I simply think all day about what I need to do and what I truly want.

I do my best to muster energy to get things done but after this week I’ll be able to do a bit more. I’ll be working less and hopefully will be able to lose some more weight.
