Winding down after a protest in downtown San Francisco, these guys were about to bolt when they graciously let me snap a pic.
It won’t be long now – today’s high school Junior’s will be Senior’s. And with Spring here in Colorado, it is time to start thinking about having Senior Pictures done for the Class of 2012. Next week I’ll be posting an updated price list and information. In the meantime, take a look at samples of my portrait work. If you want to book now, go ahead and contact me.
I was flying into Oakland for some meetings the other day, and noticed a bunch of windmills on the ground. Not knowing the geography (or history of wind farms) well, I wanted to learn more and see if it was a photo op. Figured out it was the famed Altamont Pass installation, and it was only 45 minutes from my meetings in Walnut Creek. Headed out before the sun came up to get some (hopefully) good and somewhat unique shots.
I learned a couple of things:
- These things are not quiet. When you have a massive installation of them, the whistling is quite clear above the background noise.
- It is really tricky to get a good shot with the blades exactly where you want when the wind is blowing.
- Rush hour traffic in California is not fun.
I still have a lot of images to go through from this series, but I was excited about the shoot, so I tried to get one online now for people to see.
Also, I have a color version if you want to see it.
