Shots and Thoughts

Photos and comments as I explore my passion for photography. Written to and for myself as a journal to track major moments and minor observations as I continue to evolve my visual art. 

Marcus looks Cool

So it is pretty straight forward what people like in their personal photos: Guys want to look cool, Girls want to be beautiful. Easy to say, but it takes some skill to bring this out in an image.

Marcus is cool and looks cool in the shot we took today in San Jose Japan Town.

Pro tip: Shoot men on the "short" side from a lighting perspective as a good starting point for cool. I need to do this on every photo shoot.
