  1. Made sure I didnt already post these. All images were taken with a Canon 5DM4. This First Set was taken over mothers day. in Northern California by Discovery Bay. Sigma 70-200 sigma 24-105mm sigma 70-200 sigma 24-105 So 99.99% of the time I will never use an HDR filter too touch up my photography especially in commercial shoots like Realestate. buuuuuuut I gotta admit the tone mapping persona did a pretty good job here. so nicely. done Affinity team. My Client was very happy with the results, this home sold for $4.45million soo ya thats a feel good moment. all of these were done with Sigma 24-105 This was taken with the Sigma 70-200mm I used just the basic RAW editing profile for these images. All were taken by Sigma 24-105 this one belongs with the first real estate set.

    Two New photos edited with AP

    Canon 5d Mark IV / Sigma 24-105 F/4 / ISO 1600-3200 / Shutter 150-300 This image is a composition of two water drop splashes made into one. I call this one "Reflection of a Murder" Today I set out to look for unique reflections that can be created into a scene kept the edit on this image very simple did a little hue adjustment and adjusted the color balance. Canon 5d Mark IV / Sigma 24-105 F/4 / ISO 1600-3200 / Shutter 60-100
  3. Ok so I don't have the individual elements that took me hours to create this one graphic but i enjoy doing it. griffen new7480.mov it started as just a photo of my friend Griffen shinning a flash light towards me that gave me the halo to create the bubble force field, and dusted up the rocks on AFP and rendered the background to look more like the forest. funny part is we took this right next to Adobe HQ and the whole time I was thinking, how happy I am not paying a subscription lol. elements added was partical fog that, I pulled the plasma into AFD to create some brighter hues with the pink and turquoise. the wave you see on the bubble I re-colored on AFD to blend with white balance of the image and then just placed it back into My motion folder. hope that makes sense I'm not technically detailed when it comes to trying to explain these things.
  4. Here are some light edits I did on photo. Using BETA - I noticed it lags with images with high DPI.
  5. So I mentioned I entered my company into a marketing contest hosted by the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Well the results are in and they loved what the team designed and created for my 2019 campaign. Very happy and honored to have worked with bright and ready to go students. Here are some new photos I’ve taken over the past few weeks been busy but not work busy, just focus on my art busy.
  6. Took on a college team that had selected my business for a big ad campaign contest hosted by the Silicon Valley Business Journal. They have a been a stellar team so far I had to pretty much allow them create all my marketing as I do my business and create for other local small business out here. Yo the point some photos I took edited on Photo. Enjoy The contest goes for an entire year that gives us a 25k budget so yay free advertising ive actually convinced them to use affinity for their designs I wanna see how quickly they can pick up the program.

    Photoshoot for Local Bands Album Cover & Editorial

    right on, good tip for the book I have not read it, I'll put it on my list of things to check out
  9. Just got some good word this morning. I sent the following photos for the band to review before I continued on. The band approved the creative direction and is curious to see what more I have to create. so now I get to keep going, and when completed they should have about 15-20 of the best photos, 1-2 photos from each scene. from there they will take the time to pick and choose what works for their album and which one is gonna be the cover. I gave them the full set of raws and told them to just shoot me the ones they would like to see edited so I know im giving them every option I can.. These 3 were a lovely bunch, with a very specific style old timey, Baroque Dark Ages as described by them music. e all just knew how to express and interpret. All I can really say is I dug deep into my inner Edgar Allen Poe and went nuts. Their described vision is suppose to be a timeless, over exposed, very beat up photo feel. They like the out of focus but still pretty kinda photo. so basically I messed up on purpose a lot and hoped for a cookie lol . They are local to San Jose, loved what I had to share with my portfolio and has asked me to cover a new set of photos for their Album cover and an editorial piece. here are some photos I can share now. as always edited on our favorite Photo Editing Program. HOPE YALL ENJOYED

    Improv Comedy Club - Oculus Party

    HELLO AFFINITY WORLD Sharing some photography I for The Improv Comedy Club in San Jose. The Club is housed in a historic building and has been doing comedy for longer than I've been alive so great honor to be asked to provide them some photography as well as do what photographers do best and that is document. It is said that the corporate office has decided to end its time in this great small stage, makes me feel even more special I may one of the last photographers to photograph the building as it is under the companies name. on this night OCULUS was having a convention and they hosted a Oculus networking party. The DJ utilized the VR gear to showcase how they programed a virtual DJ Construct that is reactive to input from the user. it actually was a cool thing to see. I've worked in the night club scene a long time and typically change is slow in the industry but this can be a viable option for those who perhaps are into gaming graphics and music. got tons of photos but here are a few i can share.

    Photo - Nature Design... (Prickly spines)

    Awesomeness! Looks like a model of an atom or molecule. I wish I had something of the same caliber but I haven't been using the macro on my sigma lens, I am however working on a new halloween project. I think it was last year i focused my illustration and did a set of Nightmare on Sesame St. I don't know if the photos are on my profile you are more welcome to look. the goal this photo project is to actually give me a way to display my current ability to use graphics in a more natural way if that makes sense, so the models will use less cosmetic make-up and hopefully I will have the right method and techniques to display my vision. oh actually I just recalled I have this photo maybe you have already seen it, Definitely a top favorite for me. im working with a Sigma 17-70 a range I find very useful for its price. im guessing the longer the focal length the deeper you can get into a subject. maybe I can find a nice prime one.

    Photo - Nature Design... (Prickly spines)

    nice subject, lots of features you can stare at... almost looks like microscopic not macroscopic, like looking at a micro organism. cool colors, is the black background edited in or a backdrop of some kind? the textures are vivid, love that its not to crazy with the depth of field. what kind of lens were you working with?

    Nephews First Soccer Game

    yeah so interesting enough I think the first photo was kind of a unique affect actually done on AF. Photo. I used the black and white tool, because the grass was picking up more yellow when I adjusted it that affect happened naturally. I actually thought it was pretty cool and over dramatic made the grass look more like they were playing in sticks.
