"Powell Street Cable Car Turnaround"

Took this one stormy night in SF around late February or early March, 2011. I was walking up to visit a friend on Nob Hill and shot this at the turnaround. Had an umbrella to cover the camera and used one of the permanent stands as a stable surface. Shutter speed was between 2 and 4 secs.

Making a New "Business" Blog

I think I've decided to create a new blog specifically for the commercial photography business that I've started, Dexter Washington Photography, and reserve this blog for my artistic endeavors: fiction writing, art photography, video making, filmmaking etc.

I'll post a link here when the new one is ready.

Update (July 13th, 2011): New Dexter blog for my company.

Portrait: "Judi"

I rate this photograph among the best portraits that I've taken. The lighting, the tones, the pose and model--all contribute to it being one of my favorites. This one is from a shoot with the lovely Judi Mao for Dexter Washington Photography.

Dexter Washington Photography Launches

I just finished constructing the new and improved Dexter Washington Photography website. Dexter is a commercial photography firm that I started in San Francisco, CA.

I used CSS2, the gedit Text Editor, Google Chrome, GIMP and of course HTML to build it. Being new to CSS, I was especially happy with the style sheet and how I was able to make the website completely search engine optimized.
