Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

OSPW2 – Day 1

I had a blast at the OSPW2 in Napa last weekend(look at my post below if you don’t know what it is). Jason and I left home at 7 in the morning on Saturday and arrived Napa at around 8:30. We were supposed to meet at the Embassy Suites where most of the OSPers were staying. After a kick off speech by Chris and Tana we headed to our first photoshoot(Bridal/wedding) at the Winery. Originally we were supposed to be at the Costello De Amorosa, due to some issues we went to V.Sattui winery which ended up being a great location for photos. The models were gorgeous!!! It was such a great experience to shoot with them and also to watch how the fellow photographers work.

After lunch we came back to Embassy suite to hear Jillian Kay speak about how to deal with the difficult clients. She was so cute! I saw her avatar before, but it was the first time when I saw her in person. We went to photo scavenger hunt with fellow photographers Lauren and Gerald in teh afternoon. It was fun but exhausting to drive around all over Napa looking for stuff. Did I mention that I met awesome Ed Pingol and his uber cool wife Monica??? I love love love Ed’s work and it was soooooo nice to finally meet him. We all went to dinner at a Sushi place in downtown Napa.

After dinner we went back to Embassy. Nathan Holritz and Shaun Austin were the speakers. Then we headed to downtown for the night shoot. I didn’t really do much there. It was cold and I was too tired to be show my creativity.

At the end of the day when I was checking my shootsac for the compact flash cards, I realized that my Lowepro pouch was missing! I was in shock, all my work was gone!!!!!!! We looked in the car and in my bags, they weren’t to be found anywhere! It was found after two days in Lauren’s car. I must have dropped it there during the scavenger hunt. Thankfully I have them with me now.

I have been too busy lately, didn’t get to process all the photos. Here are some images from day1.
