Our neighbor asked for an updated headshot for work. In turn I asked for a portrait session at City Hall. Susannah was kind enough to oblige. I used magmod light modifiers on this shoot.

Haven’t seen Jim & Kelly in awhile so we had dinner at Farmhouse Kitchen Thai Cuisine. The food was excellent and the company even better.

We were fortunate enough to have been invited to the Harrigan June Lake cabin again. This year the timing wasn’t all that great as the Ferguson fires created so much smoke in the air. Thanks to Sandy for contributing photos.

 

I have to go to Mono Lake.

Rainbow Falls was on my list from last visit.

 

 

 

 

Plenty of wild life.

 

 

 

 

Trumbull Lake.

The Harrigan’s invited us over for a BBQ. It’s so nice to have great neighbors.

Filipino Potluck sponsored by Ed & Deepi. I forgot to take photos of all the Filipino food. Sandy did make some killer Lengua.

I recently got a used Canon G5X on ebay, as I do most of my photo gear. It’s a small 1″ sensor camera with a hot shoe. This is important because it allows me to shoot with strobes. That’s my one complaints about my RX100V. Tonight I got a chance to test it at a small birthday party for Ryan at East Brother Brewery in Point Richmond.

I wanted to try this place ever since I saw it on Check Please Bay Area. It was also time to get together with Andrea so what better occasion to visit Gaumenkitzel. It brought back memories of our Germany trip.

Haven’t seem Teddy, Christine & Connor in awhile so we had lunch at Waraku. The ramen was so good, the company was even better.

Haven’t had a photoshoot in awhile & Bill needed some shots for his portfolio.

I made an attempt at shooting a family friends night time soccer game. I horribly underestimated the field lights intensity and the resulting images came out pretty damn noisy. I shot approx 345 images but most were trash. At some point I was shooting at ISO 20K. Those were unusable. While my Sony A6500 performed well the slow lens did not, lesson learned.
