Old Town Temecula Rod Run

I used to go to the Old Town Temecula Rod Run when it was first starting, and then for a few years. I don’t go anymore. It is just too crowded, and violent. That’s a shame, because I enjoyed walking through the old classic cars and catching some color in my camera. Here’s a shot from a few years ago taken on a regular day, not during the rod run. I changed the license plate in Photoshop.

Temecula Street Painting Festival

The Temecula Street Painting Festival is both fun to shoot, and fun to attend. The work the artists do with chalk on the pavement is amazing. They work from small drawings as a guide, and then blow up the scene on the street. The talent these folks have is just spectacular. If you haven’t been to one of these, I would encourage you to do so the next time they have one in Temecula, or in your local area.

Darkness Is My Playground

Old Town Temecula – After Dark

When a bride wants to shoot after dark, most photographers will run for the hills, or just make excuses as to why she should schedule her shoot in the daylight. Me – the darkness is my playground. Just give me a strobe and a camera, and I can create a romantic wonderland not visible to the naked eye.

Tritia wanted to start in the afternoon, and shoot into the evening. We started at Wilson Creek in Temecula’s winery row, where she got several romantic vineyard shots. After a short break, we headed for Old Town Temecula.

After several shots near City Hall, the sun went down, and my lights came out.

This shot has romance written all over it, and to me really shows this couple’s obvious love affair.
