I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Day 134 (July 23) - Trash or Treasure?

Another photo of the students hard at work today. This is one of my favorites, but I can't actually explain why. Technically, it's not great. The camera was metering the wrong thing, and accidentally underexposed, so it's noisy in the shadows after I brought up the exposure, plus I cut off the top of the kid's head in front.

And yet, I really like it. So, what do you think? Trash or treasure? Let me know.


  1. I like the idea of noisy shadows, even if I haven't a clue what you mean... I think yesterday's first one is my favourite so far.

  2. I like your shallow depth of field, and the image in general as well. If you had the boy up front not so "tight cropped" ;) it surely be better, but I like it as it is as well.


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
