Shena photographed by Kevin Warnock - picture 1, October 13, 2012, Clayton Street, San Francisco, California USA

On Saturday, October 13, 2012, I photographed Shena on and around Haight Street in San Francisco, California USA.

Shena is a singer and actress, and stressed multiple times that she is not a model. You wouldn’t know that from the series of pictures I am going to post here over subsequent days. Shena is very photogenic.

I posted this 1st picture of Shena today, Friday, October 19, 2012.

There is a great story behind this picture. I had only been taking pictures of Shena for fewer than 30 minutes when I saw a restored 1927 Ford roadster in the garage of a private residence on Clayton Street near Haight Street. I walked into the garage and shook hands with the four men inside. I introduced myself, admired the half dozen other classic vehicles they had in there, and introduced Shena to them. I asked for and received permission to photograph Shena with the cars.

Shena and I spent the next hour taking pictures in that garage. The guys even moved the Ford around, first by starting the engine and driving it, and then later, by pushing it. The motor in that car is authoritatively LOUD.

The owners of the garage have hosted other photo sessions, and Butch showed me a great photograph a previous photographer had taken there.

At the end, I took a group picture of the four men with Shena, below. Butch is in the red shirt, second from the left.

I used my Canon 5D Mark II camera with my Canon 80-200mm f:2.8 L zoom lens. It was dark in the garage, so I had to use an ISO setting much higher than is ideal, so this image is grainy. I like the look, however because it fits with the subject matter. Yes, those are neon beer signs on the wall in the background. The garage was photogenic, and I hope to be invited back to photograph other models there in the future.
