How I love to go up to Napa to shoot. I’ve been very fortunate to shoot for a few wineries up there.  I just got back from shooting for Regusci Winery. The Regusci Winery was established in 1932 after the family bought the winery and piece of property from Grigsby-Occidental Winery. The hand-cut , two foot thick, stone facade was built in 1878, and it has all the character you would expect from such an old structure.

These images are going to be used to update their web site: http://www.regusciwinery.com/. In just one day, we shot many frames, but here are just a few of my favorites.

On the tech side, you will see I pushed the HDR (high dynamic range) to some extremes for effect, some more subtle.

After a long shoot day, it was awesome to sit down to a home cooked dinner with Jim Regusci and his friends, while sipping on his terrific wines!  Life doesn’t suck in the wine country.
