    The event was great! Uyen was brilliant, she followed up with everyone, reviewing the shoot after each session (location). Great to meet folks with similar interest. Uyen also shares tips and tricks on the processing techniques and reviews the outcomes as well.

    Uyen is excellent trainer. She did not waste any time and directly got started with the shoot and slowly started giving apt suggestions on frame, angles, exposures and practical aspects of analyzing best sides of models. She was courteous enough to pose as model for my training session. It's the best first exposure I've had on headshot photography.

    PHOTOGRAPHERS
    Uyen Ta
    Growing up, Uyen had a passion for taking photos and developed a plan to start doing a photography business herself in the fashion industry after modeling for a year. Having worked with a model in a very well known agency in SF, she has decided to start teaching the basics and fundamentals of how the camera works. It has been a fun, exciting five to six year journey to getting where she was at and ever since then has semi retired from photography and been shifting towards working on other hobbies such as streaming, djing and hanging out with close friends and family. She is currently at UC Berkeley getting two degrees and planning to travel more! She loves her dog, Monty, and tries to make sure everybody has a pleasant experience in a group setting in this informal, fun and laid back structured meet up!

    Uyen Ta is available for private bookings

    Available most Saturdays and Sundays from 1pm until 7pm.

    I recently set up a photography studio in my condo and am trying to learn some portrait photography skills by watching YouTube video tutorials. Most of the time I'm using myself as a model. I actuate the camera shutter with a hand held bluetooth shutter release. With this shot I was testing a lighting setup that would create a "Rembrandt" lighting effect while at the same time bringing the light in from behind the subject...known as short lighting. When I was young I was into acting and am fasci

    I am the person who is always looking for a place with waterfall. It brings me peace of mind, the negative thought could release by the sound of the waterfall. By looking at the waterfall it made me realized the flowing of the water is like the flow of life, nothing remains stagnant.

I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.
