Today's photos are a little more fancy than most daily shots, which I guess is a bad thing. ALL of my daily shots should be awesome and amazing. But, some days just don't pan out like others!
Today I changed the oil and washed and waxed my beloved FRS 10 Series. I need to get a new buffer, mine is over 10 years old and makes so much noise when it is running it is fatiguing! So on my way to dinner I grabbed a couple shots...
Then when I went to dinner, my first choice was everyone else's first choice also. So I drove to a near by brewery to see if the had a food truck. Not just a food truck, they had a tent, with sushi.
On my way home I drove down some roads that I hadn't been down to see if there were some good shoot spots, and I found a place that someone had a little fun at. In something with a lot more power than I have, but it made for a neat shot I think.
So, yesterday I had a plan to do some table top practice, with beer. I have some beer shots in my portfolio but I am always try to get better and better. I set up the shot, set up the glass, and started testing lights and after a while, I realized I just wasn't happy with what I had. I tried some more, but instead of I would call it a night and go back the drawing board (and probably watch some more Rob Grimm tutorials).
Today I decided to go through what I had and see what was what. I made the above photo from that shoot.
It was rainy and cold (for San Diego) today, so it was overcast and cruddy looking outside. But, in the afternoon I made some tea, walked outside and it was sunny, raining, well misting lightly, but it was sunny. So I grabbed my camera to get some late afternoon light.
Then when I set my tea down, I kind of fell in love with the light and the steam, and took WAY too many photos of a cup sitting on a table. If someone saw me doing this, I am sure they would think I was insane. BUT, what is a photographer going to do? Let really pretty light go to waste? HECK no! haha
Let's see what I can take photos of tomorrow. haha!
So, I haven't been using my camera as much as I like to, so yesterday I drove somewhere, parked, and walked around carrying my camera. I was being wishy washy deciding where to stop so I just pulled over in Solana Beach and said, "Well, looks like this is the spot." Here are my images from the day.
