Last weekend was a busy one.
I helped my friend and really good wedding photographer Eyvnn LeValley shoot a wedding at Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley.
Around 300 people attended and there were 16 bridesmaids and groomsmen.
These photos illustrate something in the way I shoot as a photojournalist in order to tell a story. The first two photos were shot with my 300mm lens, which brings the subjects in really close from far away, bringing the view into the scene, while the last photo was shot with a wide-angle, probably around 24mm. It shows that I shoot either pretty tight to show details and wide to show the scene.
Below are my three favorite photos.
I also shot senior portraits of Zoe Thurman. She is daughter of my friends Larry and Jaki who own Acme Coffee Roasting Co. in Seaside. Good people.
We wandered around in downtown Salinas and a few of the older, nice neighborhoods to find backgrounds.
Lots happening. More to come...
