Corissa Near Wilson Creek Winery

Tilt Shift Practice

After Taco Tuesday at Guadalajara’s, Corissa was kind enough to let me take some photos of her so I could practice using my new tilt-shift lens. I really love my new tilt-shift lens, but at this point in the game I am struggling pretty hard with it (as you can tell by the above photos that were basically all shot with my 50mm). It probably did not help that I was trying to figure the darn thing out after two margaritas, which I swear were made from pure gasoline. Any margarita-enthusiast must stop at Guadalajara’s in Temecula during their happy hour and drop the $3 for one of these margaritas of death. I am actually shocked people can even drive out of that parking lot after a couple of those drinks…Anyway, after getting sauced up, we went behind Wilson Creek Winery at a spot off Buck Road to do a real quick mini shoot (Buck Road also happens to be one of the party spots of my youth, so it was nice to go back and relive the glory days of dirt party shenanigans). The reason I selected this location is because it is absolutely gorgeous this time of year. The spot is remote, so there are no distractions, and the fields are a rolling green and gold color. It is a location I would highly recommend any Temecula photographer use for doing an engagement or family shoot.

I would like to send a big thank you to Corissa for being such a awesome, sexy, smoking hot model, and not complaining about the continuous farts I was ripping from the all the beans and tacos I grubbed down during dinner! You’re the best sugar face!
