Shooting in Downtown San Jose

I was contacted by a guy I shot a couple months ago and he asked if I’d be interested in doing a test shoot with a friend of his that was looking to have some photos done for self promo materials.  We decided to shoot in San Jose because you get the feel of a big city, without all the traffic.  We had originally wanted to shoot in a plaza in the middle of the city but when we showed up we realized that the whole area had been decorated as a Christmas village, and that wasn’t exactly the look we were going for.  So we ended up finding a spot on the sidewalk next to the SJ Museum of Art and made the best of it.
