Since I arrive early for each photoshoot to check lighting, stake out good photo areas, and get my cameras set up, I have time to take a few snapshots that I find interesting of the location.
Here are a few photos that I found really interesting from my last shoot in San Francisco…
Out For A Smoke
This older gentleman came out of the cafe for a smoke. The way he leaned on the beaten up Chevy was so interesting.
Was he depressed? Sad? Tired? Ill? I love photos that tell a story or make you think.
Signs and More Signs
Your eyes almost don’t know where to look.
Okay, I admit — I’m not a fan of pigeons. But it’s not a city if there weren’t pigeons, so I thought this photo is a perfect representation of a typical city scene.
Artistically, I like how the yellowish-orange color of the background brings out the bird’s eye color.
Tail feathers? Just kidding. I intended on taking a close up of the pigeon’s face, but he turned that very second. (I guess he was camera shy!)
But some “mistakes” can be pretty cool. I happen to like this one because it is something I would’ve never thought of taking, for obvious reason!
The result is… a circle-shaped bundle of feathers. Visually it is very interesting because you don’t see other parts of the bird (head, legs).

It just looks like a typical weekend morning in the city.
