I wasted no time. As soon as I joined my new team in Google San Francisco, I started a new SF Googler photography club. To my surprise, 32 people signed up within the first 24 hours. "Wow", I was thinking to myself, "I found a gap to fill".
The club has 45 members today, we communicate via an internal mailing list and share photos on (where else but) Google+. Given that we live in a democratic society, I had everyone vote on the ideas for our future photo walks and photo shoots. The idea with the most vote became today's assignment. We ventured out towards the (not so distant) Bay Bridge and shot the bridge (duh), and the surrounding architecture.
I took the liberty to take few extra non-architecture shots of my today's companions.
Here comes the trouble!
Since most of the fellow photo walkers are fairly new to photography, I challenged them and asked them to shoot in manual mode for the whole duration of the photo walk. While walking back, I noticed a great back light in Jaclyn's hair. Perfect opportunity to teach my fellow walkers how to shoot against the sun! Jaclyn looks stunning and I now know we don't need to worry about having a model in our future photo shoots.
