Last weekend, Chris and I walked around Philly, scouting for places to take photos and places to take visitors. We ended up at the Art Museum (and Rocky Steps!) just people watching. I never realized how popular this place is for wedding pictures! In less than half an hour, we saw three different wedding parties take their pictures near the giant columns. I didn’t snap any of these because well, I didn’t want a confrontation with a photographer. They were hard at work and the last thing they need is some n00b taking pictures of their work!
Before we started our adventure, we stopped by Tbar to get, in my opinion, the best boba in Philly. That’s a lot coming from a California Asian. ;)
We found some pretty good spots for portraits and whatnot. Here is Chris modeling them:
I love his cheesy smile here!
Then yesterday, my coworker Liz wanted to go to Locust Walk at UPenn to practice her photography. I also asked our other coworker Paige to join us because I wanted to get some portraits of her and her beautiful eyes.
There’s a mini Love sign on campus.
There a lot of beautiful old buildings on Locust Walk, but since it was such a nice day out, SO MANY people were milling around! This was basically the only free spot of doorway I could get.
This last shot is my absolute favorite of any portrait I’ve taken (not like I’ve taken that many). This is one of those shots that look fab straight out of the camera and need very little tweaking. I think this is the first one I’ve taken that needed about 2 minutes of post production. I’m pretty happy about that. :)
