Day two of Capturing San Francisco
Day two was the day we all hung out with the Olympus visionaries and I was lucky enough to time breakfast with all the male Olympus visionaries before heading out to shoot.
Saturday we shot as a full group which meant a van full of crazy photographers! All the Olympus Visionaries were in attendance: Peter Baungarten, Mike Boening, Scott Bourne, Jay Dickman, Laura Hicks, Austin Lottimer, Jamie MacDonald, Tracy Maglosky, Alex McClure, Larry Price, and Frank Smith. Now that is a list of awesome photographers!
Our first stop was Alcatraz. We took the ferry over and finally got to see the Golden Gate! Arriving in Alcatraz we all went out own ways to shoot but kept ending up together. As many times as I had been to San Francisco, I had never been to Alcatraz. It was a unique experience. Getting to walk around, see the cells, and see how far/close (depending on your viewpoint) Alcatraz really is to the City.
Fun times on the island. Tracy and Laura using Victoria as a lighting stand was one of my favorites!
“It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt,
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills,
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
All images shot on an Olympus EM1mkii and a 12-100 PRO zoom. Alcatraz has a dark history, and I think, it can still be felt. I decided to edit all these photos in black and white.
