November 5, 2009 Meet Steve Nguyen (SAF)

This is a continuation of my shoot-a-friend-a-week project.

This is Steve Nguyen. I photographed him back in 2007 and both of us has come along way now. I have become a full-time photographer since then, and  he has grown an impressive full-on beard.. He’s also the manager of an electrical engineering company, the owner of his own internet media company called Stickblade Inc, and also one of the producers for a small movie production company based out of UCR called FPS productions.  I’d like to note that this small movie production has exceeded my, and I think I can safely say that of many other people’s expectations. In their ‘low budget’ films they have helicopters, police cars, assault rifles, swat teams, etc etc. Yeah it’s pretty legit. In case you haven’t figured out what type of movies they film, they film my favorite genre; action. Check them out.

So I started shooting Steve, and he said I want something urban. “Oh…” I replied. I put my 85mm ‘pretty’ lens away, and replaced it with my 50mm. And this is what I came up with.

There are some things in life I just don’t understand. This is one of them.

Right after this she yelled “Stop taking photos of me (because she was tearing up) !” I backed off immediately, I didn’t want to get hurt.

Hey if you want something, you gotta go get it right?

They had a second bouquet toss. And let me explain what’s happening in this photo. In the far left there’s two girls who seem like they’re paying attention. Then there’s the girl second from the right who clearly has the bouquet clearly in her hands. But, the girl on her right has a hold of her wrist, and the girl her left has a grip on her elbow.

After examining this photo for a long time, I still couldn’t figure out what was going.  This would be good for a ‘make your own caption.’
