It was great meeting Lily, one of the owner’s of Dragon’s Pond restaurant, and working with her wonderful staff. This was easily one of the most challenging lighting situations that I have had to work with. But in the end, I think we came away with some very nice shots.
I was contacted by the SF Playhouse to take some marketing photos of their new theater space. They especially wanted to showcase their private lounge as a cozy and inviting space that VIPs could rent to hang out in with their guests for specific performances.
This was a fun shot in the middle of the rush and excitement of covering SF Playhouse‘s 2012 Opening Night Gala. They had just moved into their new digs and SF Playhouse Producing Director Susi Damilano wanted to pose on this fabulous couch located inside an elevator for guests. We only had moments to get the shot before the doors opened again.
For years the house across the street lay dilapidated. Then a few months ago we saw construction crews slowly begin to repair the old Victorian. We didn’t think much about it after that until one day we woke up to discover this Gothic masterpiece. I immediately grabbed the camera and took the photo to which I applied the Instagram effect in Photoshop afterwards.
