In this article you will find a location and a tipster simultaneously. On our trip to San Francisco we were fortunate to stay at the Hotel Best Western Carriage Inn a charming place that we enjoyed during an improvised photo shoot.
San Francisco did not disappoint us; it is a beautiful city with lots of street life. From Market Street to the Golden Gate, through Castro or Chinatown it is full of places to photograph. However, we all happen to be tired at the end of the day yet we still have a few frames to complete the roll. So, we were lucky to find this hotel with rooms decorated in a special way. I hope you like the pictures we took in this late night photo session.
Yamato, a 25-year-old photographer based in Japan, is an active Instagram user with over 4,000 followers from all over the world. He also takes highly stylized photographs with the Petzval 85 Lens, giving his images a distinct and slightly moody look.
He will respectfully ask for a photo session. He does not outline why, and if you are shy, you will wonder what he has seen in you. He greets reluctance with understanding and a resounding yes with an equal amount of enthusiasm. When the day comes, he will treat you like a collaborator. And whenever he talks about the outcome—comely photos of what looks like your most confident self—he will always call you a muse.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Diana F+ is something of a wild child. It loves outré looks, multiple exposures and outlandish colors. But loaded with the right 120 film, it can show a mellow side that favors rule-of-thirds perfection and subdued coloring.
