Round Table Pizza (by South Carolina Architectural Photographer Shutter Avenue Photography)

Sacramento Architectural Photographer

It’s been a while since I have written anything but it’s been a very busy year (2019) for me. I wanted to share this project which I have photographed for Round Table Pizza last year as an South Carolina Architectural Photographer it was an honor to do.

As for this project, this location was in Sacramento is one of the first remodels for the whole chain. They are venturing into a new, modern, and redesigning their restaurants to improve their look. I would admit it wasn’t as what I was expecting because the renderings they have sent me looked really cool but it has more to do with what the city/landlord could let them do with the location. So they had to leave some things as they were and completely redesign the interior, but for South Carolina Architectural Photographer it was still interesting to photograph it. There where challenges such as dark spaces, bright light from all the windows and the time frame of when it could be photographed (with limited window of opportunity since they had to get the store ready for opening). Anyways, it’s never an easy with this kind of projects but it was surely fun for me to step up to the challenge and create something great.

Likes and dislikes about FujiFilm Cam Remote App Review

Now that I have used the FujiFilm Cam Remote App for more than three years I can finally rate it and discus everything that I like about it as well as dislikes. Now before I go on, this is my personal opinion about it and yes in the past I have used CamRanger which I did like to some degree. Even though Fujifilm Cam App was recently updated nothing really changed, just the look is a little bit different.

The Pros:

  • Very easy to use: the first time I have installed FujiFilm Cam Remote App it was at a job site and I had no problems to navigate around the app.
  • Access to the features of the camera while using the app: You can pretty much access all main camera functions which you will need to do stills or video. Things such as ISO, Film Simulation, White Balance, Flash Mode and Self Timer. Now some functions I don’t really use as Self Timer or Flash Mode but other features I do use on regular basis.
  • Live preview: Yes, I think this is the best feature of this app is that you can see exactly how it is. This makes it much easier when photographing for architectural projects because I can determine if I need to move something or wait until something is out of the frame without running back and forth to the camera and adjusting it. Also it will show you what your white balance is and exposure as well in live view, best thing for real estate photography.
  • Preview/Import Mode: This does come in handy when photographing for interior designers because you can select an image and zoom in to see if anything needs to be moved or adjusted. Also the import feature is great because instead of photographing with iPhone and posting on social media FujiFilm Cam Remote can just save the image and then you can adjust it in any editor app to post. I do like that.

The Cons:

There are few more cons than pros which is not surprising since I don’t think the developers where focusing on the app as much as they should have.

  • You need to have your white balance preset prior to opening the app. This one thing really bugs me. Yes it does have white balance access to the camera but not to the full extend. All you can do is preselect white balance options but you can’t adjust as you would in camera. For example if you want to photograph outside and you need to select nice warm color balance of 5600K but then realized that it’s not enough and need to now adjust to higher or lower number there is no option to do so in the app. Only presets. 0_o
  • Bracketing, Bracketing and yes Bracketing: No you don’t have an option to select bracketing for multiple exposures. Why not? I don’t know. Yes you can manually adjust the exposure but every second does count when doing outside photos. Now for interior design photography this doesn’t bother me at all but for architectural and real estate photography when you have moving cars or trees due to wind yes this does irritate me a bit.
  • Auto focus only: On the screen you can only select where you want your green box to be in the photo for focus. I have tired to do manual focus first then turning on the app and photograph but then the app just crashes by giving me unreadable files. If FujiFilm can fix this one issue of maybe lock-in the focus while using the app this would be so helpful.
  • Range: While they they say it had a long distance for it to work I have found out that it only works best at maybe no further than 50 feet and if you have walls around you then even shorter distance. This does complicate the shoot especially when I do real estate photography and have to go to other rooms to hide or even when doing dusk photos outside. The app developers really need to improve the wi-fi connection in this area.

What can I say: I love Fuji and their cameras but their app is a joke. Maybe they need to take a lesson from CamRanger app and improve it but I am afraid in reality this will not happen any time soon. Overall it’s a very useful tool while photographing especially if you are a street photographer or when using it for architectural photography.

MJB Homes By Sacramento Architectural Photographer

Last year I had an opportunity as a Sacramento Architectural Photographer to work with Mike Bouchard from MJB Homes to capture one of his home which was build from ground up.

Sacramento Architectural Photographer

When working with builders it’s always an interesting experience and I do mean it in a good way. Because the homes which they build are always unique to the client and not a cookie cutter homes. Although sometimes the home is furnished and sometimes its not. I don’t have a preference for furnished or not but I do think it’s more appealing when it is furnished.

Sacramento Architectural Photographer

Coming back to this home, I really liked the kitchen and the views from the back patio were stunning. Does that mean the rest of the home was not interesting? Oh no that would not be right at all. The wood rafters in the main space, plus the fireplace and the bathrooms were also wonderfully designed. Even all bedrooms had some kind of a unique feature to them. Over all the home was gourdgeous and I am really happy that Mike hired me to photograph this project for him. But enough of talking let me show you more photos from this photo shoot.

I would highly recommend Mike and his company MJB Homes to anyone who is looking for a contractor to build a custom home for themselves. Mike is a great guy and knows what he is doing.

Great Cabin to Rent in Pinecrest by Sacramento Architectural Photographer

Sacramento Architectural Photographer

This project which I was able to photograph as a Sacramento Architectural Photographer in Pinecrest for Laura is just a prove that referrals do work. But this post is not about referrals and how they work yet I would like to briefly mention how I have received this job. When in the past I was living in Denver Colorado I have worked for a great agent and he has referred me to this client to photograph this wonderful cabin. This just proves that you never know how people know each other so be nice to your clients and treat them with all respect because after all they are people too.

But now let’s get back to this very cozy cabin in Pinecrest. The cabin is not big but has lots to offer such at: full size kitchen, large living room, two bedrooms, and two lofts. I haven’t mentioned also the big porch and great fire place in the back. Also its very, very close to Dodge Ridge Ski Resort so if you are into snowboarding or skiing this is a good place to come and visit. At the moment when I was there and yes it is a drive from Sacramento but it’s worth it, the lake was kind of low but hopefully with all the rain which we had it would be filled up again. The area around the lake also has lots of trials to walk and the cabin is in walking distance of the lake as well. So coming as a family or with friends to enjoy either summer walks or winter fun while staying in this cabin would be worth it. Don’t get me started again on the drive to this cabin because it was just gorgeous, and to get away from the city life to this area would be recommended.  I will provide an email address for Laura if you would like to contact her to book this cabin but last words: it’s worth checking out this cabin.

Flea Market Decor Magazine Shoot by Sacramento Interior Design Photographer

Sacramento Interior Design Photographer

I do understand it’s been a while since I have written any blog post as Sacramento Interior Design Photographer but since the 2018 year was very busy for me I had to leave all writing until I had time. So let’s see what this year will have for me and let’s start with this great post about another magazine shoot which I was hired to do for Engaged Lifestyle Media.

This I have to say was an interesting project since it was for a person who personaly styles their home comparing to when interior designer does it. Is this a bad thing? No not really because some people are very talented and that’s what this shoot was about. To photograph a home for Flea Market Decor which was all staged (but also the family does lives in it as the photos show below) while everything was bought from a flea market. As a Sacramento Interior Design Photographer I do have to say these kind of projects do amaze me but feel free to see the photos below for your own opinion.
