A Fun Day At Pinterest

Pinteresting!

A few days ago I went to Pinterest to give a talk about The Future of Photography (and various other things), and I hung around after the event to snap a few photos. You can see me there (Trey Ratcliff on Pinterest). I had a great time getting to know people around there. I took a ton of photos and I only put a few below. To see all of them, see my Pinterest Board on Pinterest.

Why Photographers Should Stop Complaining and Embrace…

If you missed the article I wrote a few months ago about Pinterest and Copyright and Photographers, click that link and hold on!

Photos of Pinterest

Here are just a few of the photos. You can see all of them on my Pinterest Board on Pinterest.

Ben Silbermann, CEO of Pinterest, is just as nice of a guy as that smile would indicate…

 

One of the Pinterest employees works away, after seemingly emerging from a shampoo commercial. She is a person of Pinterest.

In the Park in San Francisco

The Google+ Photographer’s Conference

Right after I did this photo, the conference began. In case you missed it, here is the finale of the event when I did an on-stage interview with Kelby…. enjoy! :)

(Jump past the first 10 mins or so… the encode quality of that video came out bad… that is available elsewhere on YouTube)

Daily Photo – In the Park in San Francisco

Our PhotoWalk in San Francisco ended in this spot. At first, I thought the photowalk would just take a few hours, but I think it ended up taking four or five! That’s okay, we had a good time and only got kicked out of one place… we ended up here in this fantastic park… the sun was shining and it was perfect to round things off :)

Baker Beach and the Golden Gate Bridge

Thanks Stuck On Earth!

It was thanks to Stuck On Earth that I was able to talk myself into finally getting over here! I saw so many interesting photos from this angle that I wanted to come over to see if I could do something a little different…

Daily Photo – Baker Beach and the Golden Gate Bridge

This beach is not the easiest to get to if you don’t have a car. It’s at kind of a dead-end place, and getting a taxi to wait for you can get expensive. That’s one reason it took me many trips to finally get over here, but I’m glad I did. I was able to see a few scenes that were new to me!

San Francisco Soon….

After I go to New York then LA then Burning Man, I’ll be coming to San Francisco for a bit. I’m not sure what I’m doing yet, but i do always love the city… we’ll see!

Daily Photo – Exploring San Francisco from Above

From on top of Twin Peaks in San Francisco, a good zoom lens when the fog rolls in can get a little crazy! The fog glows orange-red with all the lights and it feels a bit… apocalyptic. I took about 20 shots of this, and the fog would creep around this way and that. They all looked interesting, but in the end, I liked this one the best.

Giants Stadium and an Interview with Forbes

Interview with Forbes

I did an interview with Forbes Magazine a few days ago, and the highlights of the video are there on the right. There’s also a longer article by Michael Humphrey after the link there. I talk about how being “Human” can become intensified with the internet and technology.

Daily Photo – Giants Stadium

When I spent the evening at the Giants game in San Francisco, we had carte blanche to go anywhere and shoot anything, so that was pretty awesome. Tom and I had the number of the PR guy in our pocket in case anyone gave us any trouble… but no one did. We spent most of the night roaming around the stadium, taking photos from many vantage points. No one ever bothered us about the tripods and stuff, so that was a welcome delight!

This was shot with the Nikon 14-24 lens… as usual, all the EXIF info is there if you click through to SmugMug! :)
