Doug Kaye and I got to San Diego thinking we might have some opportunities to shoot while we attended Dan Margulis’ workshop. As it turned out, Dan is quite a taskmaster – in a very good way – and we only had our first evening to head out for shooting.
We headed first to Old Town – and I caught this skater as he zoomed past while we were sitting on a bench.
While Doug Kaye and I were exploring Old Town San Diego last week, we came across a group of dancers doing their thing on a stage in front of a small crowd. Everyone was having a lot of fun – the dancers, the audience and Doug and I trying to capture a couple of good shots!
The afternoon before our workshop with Dan Margulis, Doug Kaye and I checked into our hotel and then headed to Old Town.
We had a great time – in the late afternoon light – exploring this great state park. Along the way, we came across some great interiors – shops along the way. This was a great example – we walked into this shop and were met with this wonderful smile – and she loved posing for our attempts to capture her image. I was shooting with my Fujifilm X100S.
I put this image through the full Dan Margulis treatment – color correction, luminosity adjustments, and color enhancement. A bit of sharpening and shadow saturation reduction finished it up.
