Does that mean that we have tons of red and yellow trees lining our streets? No, not particularly. But you know what we do have?
Golden hills, woodsy areas, and of course our beautiful redwood trees right in our backyard.
I mean that seriously, my neighbor next door literally has three redwoods in his backyard. But for these mini sessions, I had my clients meet me at Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland so that we can explore the redwood forest up there.
This park is great, it’s huge with multiple trailhead entrances. Once you enter the trailhead you are greeted by tall redwoods and tons of green and brown foliage. One thing that can happen with forests is that you can use a lot of light easily depending on how dense the forest is. It’s not a bad thing – it just means your photos will be a little darker!
This park, while has tons of trees – it also sits higher on a hillside and allows light to stream through beautifully, so you can have naturally brighter images.
