Hollywood Effects

Ever since I was a kid, I've always wanted to be a secret agent like in James Bond movies. Now with Photoshop magic, all my dreams can come true.... well, virtually. This photo of me on the train was taken on the railroad track in Old Sacramento. I was shooting a family portrait for a friend and asked him to take a photo of me with my smart phone while I jumped on the train. My initial motive was simply taking a casual shot of me on the train. When I returned to the studio, I looked at the photo and thought, "What can I do with it to make it more interesting?" So I applied motion blur to the train track and background to make the train like it's moving. Then searched for explosion and plane crash images om Google. After combining multiple images, my fantasy was created.

Hollywood Style Wedding in LA

How fun it was to travel to L.A. to photograph a Hollywood style wedding, along with special guests as George Clooney, Brad Pitts, Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. The moment the wedding couple Bi and Jimmy walked on red carpet to the grand reception, they were interviewed by chatty Joan Rivers along with paparazzi (so what if they were impersonators).

The zen and intimate ceremony was held under the summer's sun at Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden. The wedding couple exchanged their wedding vows on the moon bridge as guests witnessed surrounding a peaceful pond filled with Koi fishes and white cranes.

The Hollywood theme grand reception at Hilton San Gabriel was the highlight of the night. Giant movie posters starring Bi and Jimmy as the casts prominently displayed by the reception entrance. When the newly wed entered, Robin Thicke performed "Blurred Lines" as the newly wed whirled on the dance floor for their first dance, followed by Lady Gaga shaking the entire ballroom with her greatest hits. It sure was one of the most memorable weddings we have photographed, and we could do this every weekend!
