Against the Grain

I was on the streets, here in San Francisco, yesterday with a dear friend who I am learning more and more about patterns, shapes, and shadows.  These principles not only apply to street photography, but pretty much all photography…and in my case, landscapes.

Using lines, whether straight or triangular, are a great way to draw your eye to the main premise of your image.  Try finding the lines in your own photographs.  Where do they lead “your” eye?

I’m a landscape photographer and call San Francisco my home. My favorite locations to shoot are around the Bay, within the City, and along the amazing California coastline. You can find my best photographs at:
