San Francisco is changing. What was once a derelict, forgotten part of town has become a shining new neighborhood. Mission Bay has become a beautiful collection of office buildings, apartment blocks, a modern hospital complex, and new hotels.
However, the building that has a special place in my heart is the Chase Center — the home of the Golden State Warriors! The Chase Center as a complex is a photographer’s delight — especially for a photographer who loves to find minimal compositions. I call it the house that Stephen Curry built. I don’t care about basketball, but I love Stephen Curry for who he is and what he represents.
These three photos were captured on an iPhone 13 pro and have been color graded using my custom preset based on the colors of the Kodak Portra 400 film. The preset allows me to turn the morning oranges and yellows into slightly different tones – a blissful harmony of cream, lavender, and cinnamon. Welcome to spring 2023.
