Drobnick Family Portraits | San Francisco Botanical Garden | San Francisco Family Photography

Meet the Drobnick family! We had a really fun session rambling around and exploring the San Francisco Botanical Gardens. However many times I go there, it’s always a different adventure. What a wonderful way for their family to spend an afternoon 🙂

Editorial Portraits of Emre for Ingenjören Magazine

Portraits of Emre for Ingenjören Magazine, a publication for the national Swedish Engineers association. Emre is a computer programmer completing his MSc in data while working as a graduate student at the SF Bay Area tech firm Splunk. We met up in the morning and headed down to the Fort Point area of SF for a few shots in a classic San Francisco setting. The rain had just begun clearing from the night before, leaving us with a beautiful big softbox of a mostly overcast day, my favorite weather to photograph under 🙂

Instagram :: January 2012

Hikes in Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks in New York, more wine country trips, getting back into shooting more film, Yale University libraries and full moons kept me happy. Discovered a few more iPhone apps, notably Squareready (so you can square border your rectangular images to post without cropping in IG), Camera Plus Pro (iTunes link), where you can shoot using live filters for both stills and video. The B&W videos through CP Pro come out pretty awesome. While annoyingly slow to use, ShakeItPhoto (iTunes link) is a really cool way to get Polaroid type images from your iPhone.

For data and infographic minded folks, Photo Stats (iTunes Store link) is a really cool way to see all of the stats about the photos you make using your iPhone.  At last check before downloading and backing up all of my iPhone images, I learned I had 22356 MB of photos on my phone (taking up 86% of the phone storage), 67% of my photos were in landscape format, I generally make my images in the morning and late afternoon, the average shutter speed is 0.041 seconds and 0% of my images used the internal flash.

Happy iPhoning!
