Jumping Into The Social Web

Over the weekend, I was talking with my mother about social networking, it’s many benefits and many pitfalls.  She runs a small business providing in-home senior care and just recently started to venture out into the world of social networking.  As most people new to social networking, she is completely overwhelmed.  My mother took the […]

Happy Father’s Day

Over the past few years, I have been wanting to make a trip down to San Diego (where my parents and grandparents live) and surprise my dad and grandpa with a visit and tickets to a Padres game. Well, I finally made that happen this year, though, it didn’t end up being a surprise due […]

I Was Told, This is the Way

Description: For today’s picture share, I decided to choose a random page from my Flickr photostream and post one of the pictures from that page.  I’ll probably do this again from time to time.  It really helped me find a deserving photograph that I had missed previously. This particular photograph was taken while waiting for […]

Categorized: Photo Share – They Love To Print

Back in October, during a photo walk in Sacramento, Thomas Hawk handed out new business cards to his fellow friends and photogs and I remember thinking to myself, “Wow, these look and feel awesome!”  I asked Thomas where he ordered them from and his answer was  He was totally jazzed about them, mostly because […]

Got What It Takes

Description: Okay, I’ll admit it, I love black and white photography.  For every photograph I process in color, I almost always check to see what it would look like processed as black and white.  In a previous post, I argued that the true beauty of the subject does not come out in a color photograph, […]

My First Experience with

I finally had the opportunity to rent some gear this past weekend for a wedding I was capturing.  I must say, renting gear is a lot of fun.  Renting really gives anyone plenty of  opportunity to try out new stuff without breaking the bank.  If you are local (in the San Francisco Bay Area), for […]

The event was rather short and sweet, but still very interesting.  You can read more about the […]

I Know You

Description: How many different ways can the Golden Gate Bridge, one of, if not the most photographed structures in the world, be captured?  I don’t think that number can be determined.  I’ve tried my share and I doubt I am even close to done. Friends of mine are not big fans of my converting my […]

The Legacy of Watergate

Description: This photograph is actually hanging on one of my walls in my apartment.  I made this image a few years ago while walking around Chinatown.  I remember thinking to myself when I saw this person standing over this poster that the poster must have some meaning behind it (though I didn’t know much about […]

At this time, it looks like there are two San Fransisco walks setup.  One is already full and the other just opened up for registration.  If you don’t live […]
