Spring in California is amazing. I'm in shoot mode lately: picking up my camera, scouting models and locations, planning shoots and getting inspired. These shots are from a shoot in San Jose's Japantown recently with awesome model Tiffany. I've been challenging myself to strictly natural light, because there is a lot for me to explore there and it helps me keep things simple. I'm finding a new footing with shooting that involves more atmosphere, less editing (especially of "flaws"), and hopefully a good connection with my subject. This shoot was at high noon, which I'd never have gone for previously, but I really like showing up and seeing what the sun and location has to offer. We had fun, and I'm happy with what we got!
