Upside of shooting in Chinatown? Not too strange to passerbys since it’s such a touristy area! *thumbs up
You see this last picture? Let’s be real here. I was trying to properly walk candidly. Hence the build-up-to-laughter kind of smile you see on my face because I almost fell over right after the shutter went off. As most of you guys know from reading my blog, I’m not exactly the most careful type. I trip, I fall, I stumble, I laugh excessively. Okay, we get it. What’s the point??? I just wanted to let y’all know that if you have an issue with posing or taking pictures without looking super awkward like me, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! Okay, but I’m pretty sure you guys are better at standing still and looking natural than me!
Anyway, I spent the day with my good friend, Jeremy, who doubles as my part-time photographer. My favorite kind of friend. haha just kidding. If you guys got the sarcasm in that, we should just be friends already But, in all seriousness, he is pretty amazing with angles, composition, and finding the light. I like to say that my “expertise” try saying that without laughing, Carmen.. in posing takes all the credit, but I think it’s safe to say that it’s definitely a joint effort haha And for the more up-close-and-personal pictures, I have officially confirmed that I can’t smize. Sorry Tyra!
We stopped by SF Chinatown for a quick photoshoot, just because I haven’t been there for at least a few years. The area has really changed since I last remembered and half the time we were trying not to get hit by oncoming cars as we shot in the middle of the street, we found some awesome spots in the center of Chinatown. I seriously need to get my tush to Chinatown more often!
