Breast Cancer Awarness


Though October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, it is a life long problem for some. One of my assignments was to shot an editorial photograph in the studio and I chose Breast Cancer. It's amazing how many women suffer from it. Everyone is susceptible. So please remember that it is serious and can happen at any time. More pics to come in the future. Thank you to Danielle, who did an awesome job modeling.

Riding Steady








I finally got a really good chance to take some portraits in the studio last week. I am not sure if it looks like it at first, but a lot of thought went into these images. Once again I shot Steady, a local rapper that is on a mission.

Me and Steady work good together, seeing as how we are both trying to make it in our respective areas.

The thought behind each of these photos,definitely centers around the background. In a photo you have to find ways to be verbal. I decided to take the more literal approach and have Steady just paint the background with lyrics, song titles and really anything he wanted to say.

At first I wanted him to wear a suit or something, but after running around to countless thrift stores and finding no suit, I decided that letting him choose the outfit would be good. After looking at the photos, I am pretty happy with what he wore. It is very hip hop and very Steady.

The paint brush in is hand is trying to signify that he is fresh. I want to make the connection that he just painted the background, which he did. This is a young man with a hole hell of a lot to say, and I hope that is conveyed.

The door is an obvious symbol that he is trying to break through. I originally wanted an old antique wingback chair, but that was also very hard to find. I came upon this door and just fell in love with the idea. It was a pain in the a** to drag it up to the fourth floor and it eventually fell apart once i got it into the studio, but I am liking this photo more and more.

In all the photos, I really wanted to portray Steady as a young rapper who is on the upside of things. He just came out with a mixtape and is constantly trying to push his name. I wanted to show that he is serious about what he is doing. By writing on the background and him having a very serious face, I wanted to show that he just isn't talking but is actually saying something.

This was one of the first big shoots I've done, where I have invested a good amount of money and time. It took us about two hours to set up and shoot, plus all the time it took to find the materials. I am still unsure if it was worth it yet, I guess I'll leave that up to you.

Portaits


It's been a while since I have been blogging, school and work are catching up with me. But I had an interesting assignment not this week for the Spartan Daily. I was assigned to take portraits of two photographers, Valerie Mendoza and Kirkman Amyx. Mendoza is an instructor at SJSU, while Amyx is a graduate student.

I am not always sure what to expect when I am shooting a photo of a fellow photographer. Sometimes I expect them to be picky and kind of like a backseat photographer. But both of my subjects were nothing of the sort. Mendoza didn't really have time, as we had about five minutes to shoot and Amyx was a patient man as we tried to find some kind of shot.

For Mendoza I went in with one SB-24 and bounced it off the wall to the left. I figured since we were not going to have much time I needed to shoot in her office. I wanted soft lighting from the side. Couldn't get any simpler. She was a natural at posing, didn't really have to tell her to do much. The thing I love about her photo, is how she cocks her head slightly at a similar angle to the crow in the photo above her. The Daily ran a different photo than this one.

Amyx's photo, which is different than what ran in the Daily, came right at the end. We had originally planned to shoot in small studio that was displaying his work, but didn't have a way into it. So we went to Plan B, which was to figure out a Plan C. We took several shots in a really ugly room before I took an idea from Strobist Guru David Hobby. Amyx does a lot of his work digitally, inclding the piece behind him in which he compiled 10,000 rolls of dice. I pretty much just used one flash to light his print in the back and computer light to light his face and the light on my cell phone for the front of his computer.

This assignment was all about being resourceful, with limited amount of time.

I'm seeing blue


This semester I am taking Alternative Photo at SJSU. If working in the darkroom wasn't obscure enough these days, this class takes it a step further, by finding- you guessed it, alternative ways to print photos.

No need for any fiber based paper or lines of trays under the amber light (although may choose to create their negatives in the traditional darkroom, but is that so traditional?). Print on what you want: watercolor paper, wood, wool, cotton. Anything that'll let you really.

So for I first assignment, we did Cyanotypes. These print pretty well on watercolor paper, which is what I chose to use. One gal tried wood, but couldn't get it to work.

Since this is a sort of vintage process, I decided to go with some vintage cars as my subject. I had some pretty good shots from the Monterey Historics and wanted to pump those pics up a little more.

A quick rundown of the process is: you coat your paper (or whatever you want) with the solution that contains potassium ferricyanide and ferric ammonium citrate. Then after it dries, you put an inverted transperancy on top and expouse in the sun for a few minutes. Next you rinse for about ten minutes, drop in a little hydrogen peroxide. All of a sudden you get this gorgeous blue print.

I made things hard on myself, trying to print large. I wanted 16x20s and the biggest I found to print transparencies was 8.5x11. So I put four of them together on one. I later found that I can buy rolls of Pictorico that are much larger (but also more expensive.)

The image on this post, doesn't do the process justice. But it gives you an idea.

Next is Van Dykes. Can someone say Cowboy Up?

Alexandra


So I am working on an assignment for class, and had to coax my friend into posing for me. I had to donate my money to some deaf turtles who some cruel people painted.

Just kidding. The money went to children of the Painted Turtle Camp, that her Sorority was helping out with.

But anyways, she did an excellent job modeling for me, even though she said she wouldn't. I used two hot lights for these photos. One behind and one in front of her. I got the lighting I was going for in the photos and she did an excellent job standing there, I mean modeling. The good thing about hot lights is that you usually get what you see.

I have not dealt with these kind of lights much or even bigger strobes, except when i worked at a studio. They are easier to manage than small strobes, though not as portable. One of my favorite studio photographers, whose name escapes me at the moment and it is killing me, used hot lights all the time and created wonderful images.

But these lights live up to their names and get really hot.

Blessed

I can't describe the week I had as other than blessed. The main reason: I got to cover my favorite football team, the New England Patriots, as they practiced at SJSU while on the West Coast.

Needless to say, I was pretty stoked. Here are a couple of pics of Randy Moss, who was not very media friendly at all.

Judo


So I had an assignment for the Spartan Daily, and was hoping for to come away with some better pics. Last week was one of those weeks where the obvious couldn't be more oblivious to me. So I look back now wondering why I didn't do this or that.

I went into this assignment with an idea in mind of catching San Jose State Judo athlete Jeff Fong throwing someone with some hard light coming from the front and back and hopefully blacking out most of the background. I only half accomplished that, as I failed to get the back all blacked out. But it is still an interesting photo.

All Smiles


I love college football. I don't really have a team, but since I go to San Jose State I like to root for them. This past Saturday, they did not disappoint as they routed the San Diego Aztecs 35-10.

I was able to use a 400mm 2.8 lens which I love. The only problem is the thing weighs a ton and by the end of the game you are hating it. I was fortunate enough to shoot soccer on Wednesday with it and get use to moving it around and such. It was a good warm up for football.

The picture featured is defensive tackle Adonis Davis who has a nice smile on his face, probably because he thinks he is going to get a sack. I love this shot. Unfortunately he didn't get the sack, but you can just see how much fun he is having.

Here is a web gallery of some more of the photos from the game. Enjoy.

SJSU Soccer





My internet has been down for the past couple of days, wasn't able to get these up sooner.

SJSU Men's Soccer versus San Francisco. It was 0-0 at the end of regulation and neither team looked like they were gonna pull it out. But in double overtime, San Jose got a break away and it was nothing but the back of the net.

Here are a couple of photos, as I was on assignment for the Spartan Daily.

Welcome to Darlington




Yesterday I made my first trip out of the great state of California, 3000 miles to South Carolina. It's definitely a different kind of place, but I like it. I came out this way to help with the Inaugural Darlington Historic Racing Festival, which will feature all kinds of oval racing cars at the famous Southern track. Here are a couple of photos I took today.

It's interesting being behind the scenes and watching how an event like this unfolds. Today was a lot of final decision making and last minute organizing. People down here love their racing and a big turnout is expected, which would be awesome since so much work has been put into this event.

Don't know if I'll get much up this weekend but I'll try.

I tell you what, this humidity is something else.

IRL


I headed up to Wine Country this weekend for the IRL event. It was my first contemporary racing event and was pretty cool. I am not as familiar with Infineon Raceway as I am with Laguna Seca, but it is a very cool track that some say is more exciting to race on that Laguna. I shot mainly video there with works new camera, a Canon HV30, which is whole new world that I am excited about jumping into. Hopefully I'll have that video up soon.

Here are a couple photos of Helio Castroneves and Danica Patrich. Helio went on to win Sunday's race, after like a 17 month dryspell.

I don't know how much posting I'll be doing in the next few weeks, as today is the first day of school and I leave for Darlington, South Carolina on Wednesday. This is going to be a busy semester, but I am looking forward to it.

Monterey Historics







This past weekend was the Monterey Historics in the beautiful town of Monterey and at the world class race track, Laguna Seca. It's one of the biggest vintage events of the year with gorgeous cars all around. You got racing, auctions and even the parking lot is like a car show. Here are a few pics from the event that I really found interesting.

This is why I feel like I gain 10 pounds every time I go home




If you think you're man enough for an S.O.S., go ahead and try. Me and my buddy Mike didn't stand a chance.

Keep it Steady


A few weeks back I did a photo shoot for a buddy of mine who is starting up his own music thing. This guy is dreaming big and hopefully it'll all come through for him.

He started his own label with some friends, called Thoro Bread, and one of the rappers cutting tracks for them is Steady, pictured here.

He might look all tough in the photo but this guy and the rest of the group were cracking up all night. It was one of the funner shoots I've had, and the group was easy to work with.

Where did the newsracks go?


Okay. This post has got to be a little different than others. Normally when I find an interesting article I leave a link here and you can go read it for yourself. But the problem this paper, the Palo Alto Daily Post, doesn't have a website or many newsracks now.

Actually they do have them, as they were plucked from their normal spots along side another newsracks and delivered to their front door by Palo Alto City workers . Acting on complaints from longstanding competing papers, the city ordered that 27 freestanding post newsstands be removed from downtown sidewalks.

It's an obvious violation of city law, which requires that a hearing be had prior to such action.

Post Editor and co-publisher said in this mornings post, "This is a first Amendment battle. The U.S. Supreme Court says you can't have a free press unless you have freedom to distribute, and the city took that freedom away from us today."

He is pretty mad.

So, after that whole debachle, the Daily Post staff spent the night replacing all of those newsracks and promise to keep doing it.

This paper has a fire lit under it. Many have speculated that it would fall flat on its face in no time, especially since they have no website and face stiff competition in the Palo Alto Daily News. Though it is worthy to note that Price was one of the people who created the Daily News and sold it for $25 million. The guy has an idea of what he is doing.

But since their inagural edition they have raised their circulation and at the end of the day when I pass their racks, they are empty, along with the Daily News. And frankly it is surprising, since the times of exsisting only in those metal boxes that line city streets is suppose to be long gone. It's refreshing to see a newspaper, with a newspaper mentality.

One thing to think about though, is the city can remove their newsracks all they want, but they would have a hard time removing their website if they had one.

Lazy summer




This was suppose to be the summer where I got stuff done. I was going to be an artist, a dedicated blogger and a big freelancer. I got none of that done. But that's not to say my summer was a complete waste. In fact this has been one of the best summers ever, just not for productivity.

But all of that will be coming to an end in a couple short weeks, as SJSU starts classes on August 25. I am a little bummed that I won't be taking any journalism classes, as my schedule is full of art classes, but I will still be doing some work for the Spartan Daily. I still think this has been a beneficial summer, a much needed break. Hopefully I'll kick off the semester with my batteries fully charged.

Here are some photos from an All Star football game I covered in San Jose a few weeks back. It was one of the few freelance gigs I did over the summer for the Almaden Times.

Hayden in the Trees


I had one of the best times of my life this past weekend at the U.S. Grand Prix at Laguna Seca. It is the best motorcycle racers in the world, going head to head at one of the worlds finest tracks. People from all over the world made the pilgramage to Monterey to take in the weekends events.

Here is one of my favorite shots from the weekend of Nicky Haden, former Moto GP champion, going down the Corkscrew. Everytime I go to laguna I always try and find a shot that can someway show the trees that shade the top of the notorious turn. I think I got it this time. There will be more photos to come, so keep an eye out.

A superior accident


As stated earlier I spent the Fourth in Irvine visiting one of my best friends and had a blast. It seems every time we get together we take a lot of photos, but this one time we got one that was more than just a snapshot. She was telling me that she would be a horrible model, but I don't know.

Anyways, I thought this was a fun photo even though it was by complete accident and taken with an old point and shoot that tends to make everything soft.

It could always be worse, and it usually is somewhere

Today I am in Irvine, CA visiting one of my best friends. Being in the LA area I decided pick up the LA Times and have a read, and I must say that I spent a good couple of hours reading the newspaper. Something I haven't really done in a while. There were a few good stories that really stood out to me, but one above all others.

It's sort of ironic, just the other day I was thinking about what it was like to be a journalist in another country, specifically Mexico. I know the country has it's problems, but I had no clue to it's extent. I thought it would be cool to be in a totally different environment, seeing it all with a different eye. And me being of Mexican decent, I thought Mexico could be an ideal place for some real journalism.

Well it doesn't get any more real in Mexico. In fact, instead of worrying about being laidoff, journalist there have to worry about being picked off by drug gangs and criminals. In this story by the LA Times, it depicts the extent to which brutal drug gangs will go for reputation, domination and intimidation. Thirty reporters have either been killed or missing for reporting on these gangs, and newpapers all over the country and begining to abandon stories on the criminals. Some newspapers have taken a different tactic, by omitting the name of the reporters or having a pen name.

These are real journalist. Risking lives for the truth, to create public awarness. And here I am complaining about not having a job, while some of them don't have lives anymore. It's a battle out there, and some people are using real amunition.

Life has taken over

It's the summer time and that means spontaneous trips to the beach for a bonfire and long nights with friends and a good brew and early mornings at work. The days are long, and the nights tend to be also, but no one is complaining. I got a new bbq and gorgeous weather here in the Bay Area, throw in some good friends and I can't ask for anything more.

Unfortunately I have come to neglect this blog for the most part of this summer. It's not intentional, and I don't really have an excuse. I've just been busy having fun.

But just because I take time off, does not mean that newsrooms have. They just lay off.

In recent days I heard that the Palo Alto Daily News is laying off five of its editorial staff and one graphic designer. The San Jose Mercury News is continuing to shrink it's newsroom, and this morning I hear that NBC 11 is cutting jobs. This is scary times for everyone. I am trying to break into the industry, and it just keeps getting smaller and smaller.

I guess I can't let this ruin my summer, but sooner or later it's going to start getting colder and the days will get shorter. Blue skies will turn gray and gloomy, although I think the news industry might already be there.

Just wanted to share

Me being a college student already racking up college debt, I found this article interesting.

It's that time of year

As the summer begins a new crowd of young adults will brave the heat of the real world, as high schools all across the country are promoting their seniors to graduates. It is a huge step, that I don't know many graduates are aware of.

I remember my graduation a few years back, actually four, and I couldn't imagine what it meant to be actually done with high school. I was well prepared though, and my parents saw to it that i had a job interview the day after I walked the line.

I covered a couple graduations this past week for the Almaden Times, a weekly newspaper in the San Jose area, and I just watched how some of these kids nonchalantly crossed the stage like it was just another day. Now it's not like things did a complete 180 and I was totally blown away by leaving high school, but things will change and I don't think many of them realize how much they will.

It's funny, I should be graduating college this year, but because of me transferring and taking a semester longer on the JC level I still have some time left. But that's not a bad thing, graduation will come.

Here is a photo from the graduation. I thought it was very represen- tational, almost Hallmarkish, cause you got the graduate walking into the light looking back with a smile.

Congratulations class of 2008, especially to my brother Chris who made it also.

Speed is Fun

I finally got around to creating a short Soundslides show of the vintage racing event I covered back in March. It was a full vintage weekend at the newly named Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California.

I decided not to name the racer I interviewed, because he represents a lot of vintage racers. They have similar stories with different details. At the heart of it, they just love to race.






You can watch it in a separate window HERE.

Memorial Day



Today is Memorial Day, or decoration day or something else I don't remember.

I continued my trend of working on this holiday, by freelancing for the Blossom Valley Times. I actually never mind working on Memorial Day, since it presents a unique opportunity for a classic all-American photo. There are flags and uniforms everywhere, and it is pretty cool to watch the whole event unfold. People are proud to be there and be American, and I am proud to cover the event.

Going into this kind of function, which was a memorial service at a cemetery, I am looking for flags and uniforms and emotion. I am looking for something that people can identify with. It's hard not to get in the way of the attendees and it's even harder to move around all of them. There were a couple of photographers there also, so I tried to roam around and find different shots.

These two shots were just kind of things I saw. If you want to see what ran, you'll just have to mosey on over to the Blossom Valley Times in a week or so.

I feel I got some solid shots, nothing that was portfolio worthy, but I came away with some good stuff. I also got stung by a wasp, but that's just a minor wound.

Laguna Seca

So I spent my Saturday at Laguna Seca, shooting photos for work/fun. It was the Monterey Festival of Speed sponsored by RumBum.com. You had historic cars, along with contemporary races.

Here are a couple of photos from the race. I set up shot at the legendary corkscrew for this race. If you notice the single car photo, he is on three wheels going down it.

It was a warm day, but eventually the breeze from the ocean a couple miles away came through. The main event was scheduled to be the Champ series, but when that series merged with IRL the event was canceled. All in all, it was still a fun time, and really, it didn't feel like work.

Someone forgot to mention that well is pretty much dried up...


Someone must have been desperate. The San Francisco Chronicle newsstand at my train stop in Palo Alto, was broken into and striped of all it's change . Maybe they got enough for lunch...if they were lucky.

Giving myself a hand


So I took this photo a while ago, and it was okay. In fact I liked it a little better than okay. But I had this assignment in class, in which we created paper negatives. I can't tell you the process, because it is not my process to give away. Well, whose is it? My teachers.

When someone asked him, did you invent this process, and he nonchalantly said yes, it blew me away. Here I am sitting in a class with the man who invented his own process. Maybe I am a little naive and there are tons of people out there doing this, but still, that is pretty cool. And for the record, this process is pretty cool. Lets see you get this kind of effect with photoshop.

I think it looked even cooler when I printed it out. I did another one also, but don't have the file on me. Has anyone else out there come up with their own process?

The Peak of my procrastination

Because I am who I am, I procrastinate a great deal. With the end of the year creeping up right now, I can not afford to do that. But I did. I am. Hopefully I have reached my peak, and will finally buckle down and get some stuff done. We'll see.

Anyways, I actual did do something productive while wasting time tonight. Finally got to test out my new SB-26, which worked like a dream. It is very cool having two flashes though it was a little tough to work around the optical slave. I need to get another Cactus receiver, which is also working like a dream.


My lighting set-up was one SB-24 to the camera right at 1/4 power and snooted. Behind the glass door was the SB-26 at 1/2 power with a red gel, which I got for free along with hundreds of other gels from Lee Filters. My settings were like 100 ASA at 1/25 and f/8 or something like that. I don't remember completely.

Not a bad way to procrastinate, but I still have a mountain of work ahead of me and not a whole lot of time.

Because of all the turmoil in the industry, some journalist are turning to fashion


Ha. I am totally buying a shirt. If you haven't checked out angryjournalist.com, you probably should.

Now you can wear a shirt that goes along with all that anger.

Two more classes left. I actually got more work to do between now and Tuesday than I had all semester it feels like. So that's my excuse for slacking here.

More library time

So I spent a good amount of time in the library this past weekend, and will probably be doing the same in weeks to come. It was time well spent, as I got a lot of work done. I have been in the King Library many times, and am continually impressed by it. It has a bunch of weird quirks about it, even though it is so new. I think I need to explore it some more. Check it out.


Saturday, April 26, 2008

It's such a wonderful day outside...

And I am stuck in the library.

I got this gorgeous view of the San Jose, but am stuck knocking out a paper, which I have yet to start. Only a few weeks till the end of the semester. It's going to be a busy few weeks.

Toilet Paper...

After spending 4 hours on a Friday morning covering the active shooter training for the Spartan Daily, this is the final product. I was totally stoked to get a bulk of the front page, even though it was a sub par photo. It doesn't upset me or anything like that. I guess it was put to good use in the end.


And who eats in the bathroom?

My life changed in the sixth inning

Have you ever felt like you're in a rut? Of course you have, that's a stupid question, but I am in this rut where I am feeling extremely creative and artistic but can't translate it to a product.

It got worse in the sixth inning.

On a recent trip to visit one of my best friends in Sacramento I came upon one of the best booksales I have ever been too. I got several books on Life Magazine and thier photographers, with the most expensive one being $3.00. I have since poured over the pages of some of these books and been scouring the internet just looking at photos. Being an observer of the art of photography.

I have been trying to find something much different than what I see a lot of today, that reminds me of the old days.

I have drained the battery on my camera with three days of shooting this weekend, a news event, some landscape and a sporting event (which you can guess was baseball). And I don't think I got a single image I was happy with.

So why the sixth inning? That's when it happened. That's when I lost a huge part of my inspiration and a big reason why I am who I am today. It Didn't even involve a camera, though one was in my hand like last time. Didn't have anything to do with my assignment, though I was on an assignment last time.

The game was over in the sixth inning for me, and I am not talking about baseball.

We'll see how I can mature and develop over the next few months after this personal issue. For the first time in a long time, I have no clue where my life is going and with who. I wonder how it will affect my shooting, my writing and my motivation. I wonder how I will come out. I can't say that I am happy or feeling good right now, but I am excepting of what has happened and why.

But that's enough of me pulling the emo card. I usually hate this kinda crap, but I just got to for my own sanity get it out, even if I do it in a vague blog post.

But I will never forget the sixth inning.

See it with your own eyes

See the aftermath of layoffs with your own eyes.

Originally saw this on Joe Hollak's blog.

If I am correct it depicts the layoffs at San Jose Mercury News.

I am a fan of the Merc, which is the paper that gets my $.50 on a nearly daily basis. Now in the past few months, I haven't been too happy with the Merc, as it seems like financial problems are becoming more noticeable. It's not so much the coverage, (but I have heard that it has not been as spectacular as in years past) but in it's presentation.

Firstly, I hate that the Scene section is now part of the B section most of the week. I have a routine with reading the paper, which involves the funnies, and it just annoys me that it is part of the local news section. There were some times when all the puzzles were separate from the comics.

And then the thing that really got me. In the middle of one of the Scene sections (when it was its own section) there was a half page. Really, a half vertical page.

I thought that something happened on accident, but it seemed like it was done completely on purpose. I am not sure why, but I am a big boy and can take a full page of news.

I don't know if any of this has to do with finances, but I am going to guess so. Maybe these are really big issues, but they did and do bug the crap out of me. Along with having to register for their website. I had to log in a few times, and eventually I got tired of it and just started going to the chronicle website for Bay Area news.

I am done with this rant. One final birthday wish to my girl. She deserves it.

Finally some race pictures

Here is my first Vuvox piece. I attended their breakout session at the NPPA flying short course at San Jose State last semester and was extremely impressed with it. I went home that day and created an account, but haven't really done anything since.

I shot these photo at Auto Club Speedway, which use to be called California Speedway. These photos include vintage racers that ran with the Historic Champ Indy Association and with Vintage Auto Racing Association. Most of them are from the HCICA though. I hope to do a piece with sound soon, just trying to find time to get to it.



I know the file name comes up, when you click to enlarge. I wish you were able to edit that with Vuvox. Maybe be able to turn off the name thing or be able to change the name of the file. But I had already uploaded the files the other day and didn't have them with me to rename and re-upload.

Tell me what you think. Do you think it would be better as a slideshow? I have some audio, but it's mainly the sounds of the cars revving up and on track. I did interview one person but it would be hard to piece together without my questions, because of the way he answered.

Anyways, I have to say happy birthday to my wonderful girlfriend. Happy birthday Courtney.

More Grant Park

Here is one of my assignments from my Digital Photography class. It was a random assignment, meaning that we created actions and had them randomly performed on the folder of photos. Here is a grid of my favorite ones.
