So, my longtime friend... even though we really don't see each other enough - totally my fault... Isaac has become a personal trainer. Over the past 2-3 years I've seen him completely transform his life which is absolutely amazing. He's lost weight, gotten into better shape, and loves his job. What more could you ask for?
As for me? Well, I'm not in such great shape, but I'm please with what my camera showed me after a photo shoot with Isaac at his gym in South San Jose. (www.fitnesssynergetics.com if you're curious). From a friend's perspective, I had a great time, and from a photographer's perspective, it was challenging. Some ups and down. Reflective material on the ceiling - Plus. Lots of objects in on the walls - Negative.
All in all considering what I was working with I'm very pleased about a few of the 200 shots (including test shots) that I took. The fact that I was able to get 10-20 shots that I really liked means my like-to-hate ratio has gone from 1/100 to about 1/10 or so. That's pretty awesome.
