Sexy Vampires in the woods

I had a fun photoshoot with a few friends. The theme was sexy vampires with a victim or two. We headed out to the woods with a few costumes, props, and a box of cupcakes they had brought for my birthday. We started the shoot at dusk and shot well until almost 10pm. I wanted to see how well the Fuji X Pro1 would do along side my new Canon 5d Mark 3 in very low light conditions. I used a tripod for all the shots. Only natural light was used until it got really dark, then I brought out a couple of Canon 580ex to supplement the ambient light. From there on only the Canon was used because I needed to be able able to quickly adjust the settings wirelessly from the camera. Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot. Adjustments were made to make it look more dramatic to fit the theme. To see which camera I used for each shot, please look at the pictures in the gallery. The camera, lens, and settings are listed.

One of my favorites for sure was the last shot, with Little Red Ridding Hood protecting the little school girl… unaware of the predators lurking in the darkness. Or was she actually bringing the vampires their a new victim? Hmmm…

Ten years ago, I left the mortgage and real estate business to pursue photography, which is a passion of mine. The mortgage business was excellent at that time but I was tired of it. I had a daughter that was just born and I wanted to do something that would allow me to spend more time with her and at the same time do what I wanted. I knew that I enjoyed people photography and soon discovered that I have a very real and special talent for it. I discovered that I was particularly good at capturing moments and revealing emotions through pictures. This came instinctively for me and allowed me to develop a style that was very comfortable for me to work in. My photography quickly became popular in the bay area and I've earned a large number of referral businesses as a result. In fact, i'd say I most of my business growth is the result of referrals from clients and online sites like Yelp. I currently have a studio in downtown San Jose and photograph weddings and portraits all over the bay area and California.
