Happy 2010! Oh 10, oh yea! Welcome to the new year everyone!
The holidays were very kind to me and busy. I have started a new shoot that takes me around the city and involves specific objects. So far I've completed 2 locations. I still have 5 more areas to shoot in. But thats all I can share with you on that. In the near future I will share the product of that shoot.
There is also a new project that will be starting soon. It involves human subjects...no I'm afraid it will not feature Jeremy Morgan, but he is a subject you will see again. My newest work in this shoot will involve a female. I've come up with some concepts and she and I are excited to see them come to fruition. I must apologize again, for that is all I can share on the matter...for now.
Lets get to the goods. The shot you see below is part of a series I did here in downtown San Francisco. The shoot itself was indeed skate photography. However I decided to take skating into the still life realm. The light on this day was fantastic! The sunset was cracking between buildings and bouncing everywhere. I was very fortunate to have it assist me the way it did.
The wonderful thing about this photograph was of course the woman on the left side of the frame. She just happened to be walking by and I did not intend for her to be in the shot. In fact I didn't notice her until I took the photo into editing. Her reaction makes the picture. This is the beautiful thing about photography. Often things like this will happen when you go out on shoots in the public. You can't predict what will come into the frame when you shoot and if it so happens to work out like it did in this shot then you may end up with one hell of a picture.
This shot along with the others in the series will go on sale in several different forms. I will have regular prints as well as large canvas prints. There will be more details on that in the coming months. For now I'd like to know what you think so please leave comments. Til next time..keep it 100. Peace.
P.S. This one is for MLK.
