We recently had a great shoot at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. We had beautiful weather, and the fog cleared up just in time for our shoot at the Golden Gate Bridge. It made for some great photos! You can see a sneak peek at the shoot in this post, but one thing I’ve always been fascinated by is the behind-the scenes stories. So, I thought we’d share some of ours!!
We started across from the Palace so we could get wide shots with our models. While taking those shots, we kept seeing a huge fish jumping out of the water. We’re still not sure what kind of fish it was!
For these shots, we had to lay on the ground to get both them and the dome in the shot. Not the most glamorous pose, but you do what you gotta do! Well, while I was laying on the ground shooting away, a tourist walked up to me and took a picture of me with his point and shoot and hurried off. I’m sure I looked pretty comical on the ground, but with the gorgeous architecture around us (and two stunning models), I’m still not quite sure how I managed to win the honor of being the subject of the photo. Anyway, if you happen to see a picture of a girl laying on the gravel ground wearing gray pants, black wedges, a tan chevron shirt, a black backpack, and a camera in hand – looking both a bit confused and a bit perturbed – that was me. If you see it on the web, send it my way!
For these stunning shots, we traveled across the Golden Gate Bridge, and up the Marin Headlands. It was REALLY cold and windy up there, but those two were troopers. We gathered our gear and hiked up to the shooting location in the dark. We told them they could wear coats in the photo, but being the great sports that they were, they decided against wearing the coats and instead huddled together for warmth. The pose was so cute that we asked them to keep it for the long exposure, and we love the result. We were all frozen by the time we were done (mostly them – James and I wore coats), and we gathered up the gear and started our hike down. We came across a GIANT ant that was a couple of inches long. I’m sure it wasn’t actually an ant, but it certainly looked like it! Ick!
And, as is now tradition, we took our classic selfie shot!
