Tonight’s restaurant photography session at Johnny’s Harborside Restaurant in Santa Cruz had a few goals: portraits of both the hostess and executive chef, some evening ambiance photos, and some customer photos. Unfortunately the fog rolled in right around sunset, so the timing didn’t work out when that evening’s diners started coming in, but it’s always good to be ambitious with your goals, because shooting 50% is still better than minimalizing your expectations from the get-go. In addition to the portraits, I got some shrimp-flambé action shots in the kitchen and a plate of tacos being served. Johnny’s is a great restaurant, offering great views (when the fog allows), delicious food, courteous waitstaff and a warm, inviting ambiance. Everything is pretty photogenic too, which always helps 🙂
