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.)

She Has Her Feet on the Ground

Something about this shot I'm really enjoying at the moment. It's dangerous, liking your own work. You tend not to see the negative aspects of it. I'm feeling like what I'm doing right now is lacking movement. Hoping to incorporate a bit more of that in the days to come.

Hard because photography is inherently still, right?

Anyway, I wanted to give a shout out to two things here as well today:

David duChemin's recent blog post about simplicity. Well said.

And Rick Nunn's freaking AMAZING series, Fifty of Fifty. Here's his website he built for it, and here's the flickr set. He also has a blog post about it. Incredible, and very inspiring. Yes. I want to do something like this, and soon. Have to get me some lights soon, I think.


  1. Girly but very good! I think Jinxy wears that style footwear (But only on weekends)

  2. Not only is that a fun scene....those are great shoes! :)

  3. What about have the model appear to be walking by catching one foot in a bent position almost as if she's in mid stride!?
    I really like the shot! Oh, just thinking...what about taking the main subject out of the center of the shot and positioning to the right, that might imply movement!? You might have to change the theme title then:)

  4. Great ideas, mattafoto . . . probably would have made for a more interesting image. Will try those out another time. :-)


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