Old Sacramento Day Trip

By Derek Novaes - May 2014

Another fun shot taken in Old Sacramento, California during a photo field trip for my class. I enjoy shooting bikes parked along the streets, maybe someday I'll publish a "Bike Book!"

Its time jump on the Blog bandwagon as a photographer!

By Derek Novaes - Oct 2014

So many images to post and share, I'll start with this image of the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium off of J Street. This shot was taken in October of 2013 during Breast Awareness Month. I have been in the Auditorium hundreds of time, but never seen it with the pink highlight! I spent about an hour shooting various angles and techniques and I ended up liking this shot best! It was an HDR shot. I was trying to avoid HDR, but ultimately it was the best look, the details in the inside were dead on!

I used a Sony a77, with a 16mm, processed with Adobe Lightroom 4.
