Going out and taking more photos!

I’ve blogged about how I tend to read more about photography than actually going out and taking pictures. Luckily, I have co-workers that are into photography and are really good. So now I’ve been taking pics around La Jolla Shores. Just hanging out and actually taking my time with shots have helped me alot. And my buddy doesn’t mind sharing tips.

Here is his website: LEE SIE PHOTOGRAPHY

After 2 excursions, I’ve felt as if I learned alot ::

In Honor of the Upcoming World Cup…

In honor of the world cup, I thought I would post a soccer shot. I’m not too good at sports’ photography. I end up watching instead of catching the action. This shot was taken from a hill on a path for walkers behind the fields. It’s perfect for a faux tilt shift picture. Tilt shift is when you have a lens that makes things look miniature. I don’t own a tilt shift lens, but I do have photoshop.

Critical Mass in San Diego

I had no idea what Critical Mass was until my co-workers started to talk about it.  If you haven’t heard, it’s an event to raise awareness of cycling… either go out and ride, or have some respect for the cyclists on the road.  It happens the last Friday of every month in cities all over the world.   But this event goes for about 30 miles all over San Diego, with the bikes taking over the streets.  I’m in no way ready for that.  But it is a very cool photo opportunity.  It’s very entertaining to see all the different kind of bikes.  Fixies, regular street bikes, mountain bikes, double deckers, and some that resemble U.F.O.’s with all the lights.  I think the next time I’m able to attend, I’ll take more pictures of the different bicycles out there prior to everyone riding out.  Here in San Diego, the meeting place is at Balboa Park.
