Addition to my Hwy 5 series. This image was taken last week while traveling up CA Hwy 5 from San Diego to Sonoma County to do a photo shoot. I pulled off near Coalinga and took a few shots of these power lines that go on forever.
I did a photo shoot for an ad campaign of real people. We were going to do an image of this guy at his home. Ok, sounds good. When he opened his garage and I saw the cars, the signs, the tools, the toys, I was stoked, ready to shoot and in my favorite kind of space. You know where we shot the portrait! Thanks to John for sharing your garage and great collection of vintage cars.
Close up shot of Te’a Roa Sauvignon Blanc wine.
Here is one of the shots from a recent Chalkboard wines photo shoot.
The Lunar Eclipse known as “Bloodmoon” shot tonight just a few minutes ago.
1959 Cadillac with its long beautiful lines and huge fins. These cars look like they have been customized even when they are stock. I love the choice of color by the owner, any other car and this just wouldn’t work. Shot at Goodguys Del Mar Nationals, April 4, 2014.
Here is a shot from the Goodguys Meguir’s 14th Del Mar Nationals car show. This shot was taken between autocross races in the pits. This Vintage Camaro was being tweaked for the next session. I am glad they have added autocross to the event because it is a great way to see these vintage cars in action instead of just sitting pretty. Photo nerd info: Nikon D800 with Nikon manual 24mm perspective shift lens.
If it isn’t clear from this blog the last few days, I shoot a lot of wine for wineries. Here is a Pinot from Oregon named after a place where the ocean looks like it would swallow you up in a hole in the rocks. Thors Well on the Oregon coast. I love this label with the shape of the bow of a boat but that is probably because I am a big fan of the TV series, “Vikings”.
For those of you who are ready for Spring but it hasn’t arrived yet, here is a shot from last year to give you hope that warm days and picnics are just around the corner. This shot was done for Martin Ray Winery, Sonoma County, at the winery picnic area. A glass of chilled Sauvignon Blanc. Cheers!
The label reads, “Shackled Red, Sonoma County”, so for this photo shoot we just built a jail cell and handcuffed that glass. Not your classic wine shot.
Photo nerd info: Outside at night in Sonoma County, Nikon D800, 105mm micro lens, single Bowens mono-light covered partially with red gel for background.
