RT #51

This is a shot of the Tower Theatre in Sacramento. While taking this shot an RT bus stopped  for the redlight. This photo was selected for the April exhibition at Beatnik studios , the theme is  “Tower and the Broadway Icons”.  On Friday, March 30, Beatnik Studios will celebrate a new exhibition of original artwork inspired by the Tower Theater and other icons of the Broadway Corridor. I am honored  Beatnik studios selected my photo for the exhibition!

Wedding workshop

I attended a wedding workshop last weekend with the Northern California portrait photographers meet up group. This was my first time attending this type of workshop. I learn a little bit more about preparing to be wedding photographers. I also learned a couple of interesting lighting tips. See the link to view some of the photos that were taken by members of the group.

Devil's Falls

Took a drive to Colfax to see Devil's Falls since we had a few days of rain the falls were running good. Devil's Falls is right off the road, you can see the falls from your car. Lots of other falls to see along the way on Yankee Jims Road.

Directions from Sacramento, take I-80 north towards Reno. Take the Canyon Way exit or the Colfax/Grass Valley exit and turn right on Canyon Way. Approximately 2 miles down, turn left on Yankee Jim Road. From there, the falls are about 5 miles further in. The road start out paved then it turns to a dirt road.

Well I finally made it out to Alcatraz for the first time. We caught the 9:00 a.m. ferry from Pier33. There were lots of people on the island, but I was able to shoot without any problem. You just have to be patient! Seeing it in person gives you a diffrent perspective. You kind of get a feel of how it may have been to be a prisioner on Alcatraz. This is a shot of one of the solitary confinement cell's aka "the hole" I used a off camera flash with a gel light red gel to get the color. I want to go back to Alcatraz again on one of the night tours.
