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.)

“Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow." – Imogen Cunningham

“A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.” – Edward Steichen


I was playing with 8x10 crops yesterday, and I realized that, although I love the 3x2 ratio, I'm a little tired of it. I've been influenced by all these photographers who say they never crop their work, and I've been working on perfecting my image in camera, but what if I don't want a 3x2 image?

And I like this photo just as much if not more, with a little bit off either side. I think I might shoot with this crop in mind for the next few days, see which subjects work for it, which don't.

For your reference, here's the 3x2 image. I took this shot in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, in a temple. These are clay roof tiles. Which crop do you prefer?
