Flashback Friday to 2011!!! I'm going through and reprocessing this wedding and decided that I owe the amazing Johnny and @maaaaaarrrccy an updated portrait along with their reprocessed wedding. This one was shot by my amazing wife, @mellowdee_lisa with fresh for 2018, creative flourishes applied by me (my editing has come a long way in the last 7 years). Happy to say that these two are still this in love and that you won't find two more deserving people. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #DavidNocetiCreativePortraits #weddingphotography | #turlockweddingphotographer #modestoweddingphotographer #lodiweddings #lodiweddingphotographer #sacramentoweddings #sacramentoweddingphotographer #CAWedding #CaPhotographer #turlockphotographer #modesto #turlock #fresno #centralvalley #sacramento #sacramentoca #farmwedding | #weddinginspiration #weddingart

I’ve run into an interesting hurdle with this comic book course. Ever since my creative writing days as an English major, I’ve found storytelling to come fairly easily. I just sit down and write. But with this, I can’t seem to write anything. With this, the only way I develop ideas is through drawing, and yet I’m supposed to write a script before I draw it. No one ever accused me of doing things the easy way. Here I’m toying around with an idea for a big moment in which Aiden realizes that his abilities can be used to get away from his destructive little brother. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #DavidNoceti #NocetiArt #dailydraw #dailyarts #doodle #illustration #sketch_daily #artsy #sketching #sketchbook | #artistoninstagram #instaartist #instadrawing #igart #instasketch #instaart | #digitalart #digitalillustration #ipad2018 #ipad5art #ipad2018art #applepencil #procreate | #practice #practicepracticepractice #practicemakesprogress | #myboysmyworld

Some more teasers from the wedding out at Reece Farms. It wa s a long, hot day, and I was exhausted by the end of it but strangely it didn't feel as stressful as most. I attribute that to the help of the amazing @mellowdee_lisa who was along to help me out and all the extra time we had with a longer booking. Congratulations to @pfritze and a great big thank you for having us out! You can see more from this wedding on my website. . .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #DavidNocetiCreativePortraits #weddingphotography 🥛 #turlockweddingphotographer #modestoweddingphotographer #lodiweddings #lodiweddingphotographer #sacramentoweddings #sacramentoweddingphotographer #CAWedding #CaPhotographer #turlockphotographer #modesto #turlock #fresno #centralvalley #sacramento #sacramentoca #farmingtonwedding #farmington 🥛 #weddinginspiration #weddingart #reecefarms

Inspired by @bcolbow I’ve decided to take an online class on how to make a comic. Project is 4 pgs/16panels but looks to be a great intro. Working on something that includes my boys’ clashing personalities, one the creator, the other the destroyer. . . . . . #DavidNoceti #NocetiArt #dailydraw #dailyarts #doodle #illustration #sketch_daily #artsy #sketching #sketchbook 🥛 #artistoninstagram #instaartist #instadrawing #igart #instasketch #instaart 🥛 #digitalart #digitalillustration #ipad2018 #ipad5art #ipad2018art #applepencil #procreate 🥛 #practice #practicepracticepractice #practicemakesprogress 🥛 #hulk #hulksmash #marvel #myboysmyworld

I think saying that Ashley was a little nervous about the shoot might be a bit of an understatement. As such, it took a little while to beat her down with the camera, but eventually she sacummed. So naturally, I insisted that "Hey, let's squat down in these thorns! It'll be great!" And you know what, it was! I don't know what it was about this setup that did it but her eyes totally locked with the camera throughout all of these shots and it was like BOOM! there she is! As we got up to move on she even said, "I have a feeling I'm really going to like these ones." ⠀ .⠀⠀ Class of 2019, drop me a line before you get left behind. Last year I had to turn away people and that was with a slow start to the portrait season. This year I'm getting started earlier and am already busy so you could be in trouble if you don't act soon. On location sittings start at $75 (prints and files sold separately). ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #TurlockPhotographer #hilmarphotography #oakdalephotographer #modestophotographer #turlock #modesto 🥛 #SeniorPics #ClassOf2019 #SeniorStyle #SeniorPhotos #SeniorStyleGuide #seniorpictures #seniorinspire #GustineHighSchool #OrestimbaHighSchool #Newman #PattersonHighSchool #PitmanHigh #TurlockHigh #TurlockHighSchool #PattersonHigh #hilmarhighschool #hilmarhigh 🥛 #SeniorGirl #sunsetshoot #sunset

Head in the Clouds: This foreshortening thing is a trick! But it sure does make for much more compelling images and reminds me that I need to work more of it into my portraiture. Let one form of art influence the other. ⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #NocetiArt #dailydraw #dailyarts #doodle #illustration #sketch_daily #artsy #sketching #sketchbook #illosketchbook * #artistoninstagram #instaartist #instadrawing #igart #instasketch #instaart * #penandink #ink #lineart #linework * #practice #practicepracticepractice #practicemakesprogress

I'm not sure which is brighter here, the sunset or Nicole's personality. Had such a great time working with her up at Knights Ferry. It was a bit challenging given what the fires are doing to the air quality but we made it work. (And no, that is not a picture of a fire raging in the background, it's the sunset back towards the valley. I'd never use something so terrible as a prop for a photo). ⠀ .⠀ Class of 2019, drop me a line before you get left behind.

Asajj Ventress: Sith Assassin⠀ So it only took THREE months for me to force myself to sit down and commit to finishing this. I ended up experimenting a lot with this piece, sketching poses, mapping it out with colerase, then starting it with dip pens before moving back to microns. I also blended a couple of different styles of inking as I tried to hone in on what I really wanted. Getting closer. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #DavidNoceti #NocetiArt #dailydraw #dailyarts #doodle #illustration #sketch_daily #artsy #sketching #sketchbook #illosketchbook 🥛 #artistoninstagram #instaartist #instadrawing #igart #instasketch #instaart 🥛 #penandink #ink #lineart #linework 🥛 #practice #practicepracticepractice #practicemakesprogress #asajjventress #starwarstheclonewars #notmyluke

In honor of the flash that so nobly sacrificed its life to help create this shot, I put a little extra magic into the post production on this one. You will be missed, Flashy, but the memories you helped capture will never be forgotten. RIP #lumopro⠀ .⠀ SENIOR PORTRAITS! Book now before it's too late! I MIGHT have an opening the weekend of the 18th, otherwise the next available date isn't until September. ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #TurlockPhotographer #hilmarphotography #oakdalephotographer #modestophotographer #turlock #modesto 🥛 #SeniorPics #ClassOf2019 #SeniorStyle #SeniorPhotos #SeniorStyleGuide #seniorpictures #seniorinspire #GustineHighSchool #OrestimbaHighSchool #Newman #PattersonHighSchool #PitmanHigh #TurlockHigh #TurlockHighSchool #PattersonHigh #hilmarhighschool #hilmarhigh 🥛 #SeniorGirl #beach #naturalbridges #beachportraits

I call this, "Kai's Big Personality." My four-year-old has the mind of Bruce Banner and the temper of the Hulk. Here I'm just playing around with Procreate to see how I like it. One of the first things I did when I got my iPad was buy this app because of the number of people who are totally gaga for it. I tried it and didn't like it, probably because I tend to not like things other people like (this is why I have no friends). But they just did a big update so I'm giving it another go. I don't find it to be as intuitive as sketcbook but it does seem to be better suited for the iPad. Now if I could just figure out how to make digital illustrations look less... digital. ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #NocetiArt #dailydraw #dailyarts #doodle #illustration #sketch_daily #artsy #sketching #sketchbook 🥛 #artistoninstagram #instaartist #instadrawing #igart #instasketch #instaart 🥛 #digitalart #digitalillustration #ipad2018 #ipad5art #ipad2018art #applepencil #procreate 🥛 #practice #practicepracticepractice #practicemakesprogress 🥛 #hulk #hulksmash #marvel #myboysmyworld

It's my favorite time of the year, SENIOR PORTRAIT SEASON! (No, really, it is.) It's true that it used to definitely NOT be my favorite but that was because of how I handled my work/life balance, which was basically all work and no life. That all changed last year when I started drastically limiting the number of shoots I did and when I did them. Both myself and everyone in my home ended up being so much happier because of the change that I plan on doing the same thing this year. So if you're interested in some of the best senior portraits in the Valley, be sure to get in touch with me ASAP as dates are already filling up!⠀ In this shot I've got Nick in a shooting situation that a natural light photographer could never capture: Rembrandt light on the face with the sun as our backlight. It's dramatic and clean while still keeping that air of nature about it. ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #TurlockPhotographer #hilmarphotography #oakdalephotographer #modestophotographer #turlock #modesto 🥛 #SeniorPics #ClassOf2019 #SeniorStyle #SeniorPhotos #SeniorStyleGuide #seniorpictures #seniorinspire #GustineHighSchool #OrestimbaHighSchool #Newman #PattersonHighSchool #PitmanHigh #TurlockHigh #TurlockHighSchool #PattersonHigh #hilmarhighschool #hilmarhigh 🥛 #ffa #countryboy #farmboy #SeniorBoy

I’ve been a pc guy since windows 3.1 and then an Android guy when it came to mobile tech, so it was with great trepidation that I went out and purchased a 2018 iPad (not the pro) and I’ve got to say, I really love this thing as a drawing device. This illustration, while incredibly sloppy, is a huge success. It was just supposed to be a proof of concept, the concept being that I actually COULD draw something on what amounts to a $400 tablet. At first it was supposed to be a sketch, then I decided to convert the sketch to line art, then I thought why not try some gray scale, and finally I started layering on color. While there are several things about iOS that drive me crazy (how long it’s taking to write and post being an excellent example) I do feel like I’ll rarely be without this little iPad and that it’ll be generating a lot of art. (Now I’ve just got to figure out an easier way to get art OFF of this thing). ⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #NocetiArt #dailydraw #dailyarts #doodle #illustration #sketch_daily #artsy #sketching #sketchbook 🥛 #artistoninstagram #instaartist #instadrawing #igart #instasketch #instaart 🥛 #digitalart #digitalillustration #ipad2018 #applepencil #autodesksketchbook #sketchbookpro 🥛 #practice #practicepracticepractice #practicemakesprogress 🥛 #berserker #fantasy #conanthebarbarian

Shhhhh. I found something in the woods last night. It's a @samanthajoycee ⠀ ⠀ Last frame from last night's shoot! No edits, didn't even take my light out of the shot, just a few adjustments in #CaptureOne because I was so excited to share (and quite frankly these shots are amazing straight out of camera)! So glad I finally had a chance to not only shoot something like this again, but also that this lovely lady from TWO years ago wanted to do it! Remember, if you're this amazing, I want to photograph you. ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #DavidNocetiCreativePortraits 🥛 #boudoir #centralvalleyboudoirphotography #modestoboudoir #turlockboudoir #turlockca #modestoca #boudoirphotography #boudoirshoot #turlockboudoirphotographer #mantecaboudoirphotographer #modestoboudoirphotographer #californiaboudoir 🥛 #goth #gothic #gothgirl #afterdark #succubus #magic #fantasy #altmodel #cosplay #darkfantasy

Back at the river when we were camping earlier this summer, there was a moment where I snuck off and found a fallen tree to nestle myself into. The kids had hiked up the river a little with their grandparents and all you could hear was the water rushing past. A faint breeze made its way through the shoreline trees to reach me in my little haven, keeping me cool as I contemplated the sway of the weeds before me. "How to capture that," I thought, noting how we often take for granted that you can never see an entire scene all at once. You only see what you're focussed on while the rest of the world blurs around it. I didn't have as long there as I might have wanted but this is what I scratched out. ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #NocetiArt #dailydraw #dailyarts #doodle #illustration #sketch_daily #artsy #sketching #sketchbook #illosketchbook 🥛 #artistoninstagram #instaartist #instadrawing #igart #instasketch #instaart 🥛 #penandink #ink #lineart #linework 🥛 #practice #practicepracticepractice #practicemakesprogress 🥛 #landscape #trees #camping #clarkfork #california

Now if that isn't a look of pure happiness I don't know what is. You'd never guess by looking at this photo how stressed everyone was during the lead up to the ceremony and it's probably because of when this shot was taken. Rather than barrel through family, wedding party, and then bridals, we decided to get a few safe shots of the couple together and then take a break for dinner to be served and toasts to be given. Then Melody and I stole these two away for sunset. Amazing what a breather can do for a couple (and maybe just a touch of alcohol). ⠀ .⠀ Venue is the beautiful Reece Farms. ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #DavidNocetiCreativePortraits #weddingphotography 🥛 #turlockweddingphotographer #modestoweddingphotographer #lodiweddings #lodiweddingphotographer #sacramentoweddings #sacramentoweddingphotographer #CAWedding #CaPhotographer #turlockphotographer #modesto #turlock #fresno #centralvalley #sacramento #sacramentoca #farmingtonwedding #farmington 🥛 #weddinginspiration #weddingart #reecefarms

Another sketch from camping. This is the bridge that leads into the campgrounds. I really wanted to draw something somewhat iconic to remember the place by but figured there wouldn't really be a vantage point. Then I found a little spot downstream where a tree had fallen such that it leaned up against a standing one, making a great spot to sit. I think next time I'm going to have to go hiking with a little pop up chair just so I can be sure to sketch wherever my heart desires. ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #NocetiArt #dailydraw #dailyarts #doodle #illustration #sketch_daily #artsy #sketching #sketchbook #illosketchbook 🥛 #artistoninstagram #instaartist #instadrawing #igart #instasketch #instaart 🥛 #penandink #ink #lineart #linework 🥛 #practice #practicepracticepractice #practicemakesprogress 🥛 #landscape #trees #camping #clarkfork #california

Last little for a little while. I haven't covered an event like this for quite some time and this was the first time I'd shot in this particular church. There were a bunch of baptisms all being done on the same day and so I wasn't quite sure of the rules, especially since it was in all Spanish. Grandma pulled me aside to fill me in and said that I could totally go right up there with them. "Really, I thought you weren't supposed to go past the steps?" "Oh no! You can go right up with them!" On hindsight, I don't think I was supposed to be up there, but oh well. We got a great shot! This little angel slept right through it. ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti 🥛 #turlockphotographer 🥛 #motherhood #momtobe #turlockmaternityphotography #modestomaternityphotographer #lodimaternityphotographer #norcalmaternityphotographer #centralvalleyphotographer #californiamaternityphotographer #maternityphotographylodi #galtmaternityphotographer #elkgrovematernityphotographer #sacramentomaternityphotographer #rosevillematernityphotographer #modestomaternityphotographer #tracymaternityphotographer #maternityphotographylodi #creativepregnancyphotos 🥛 #baptism #childphotographer

Just got back from camping and I made sure to bring along my sketchbook. On day two of our trip we headed out for a little walk/hike down the river where the boys practiced casting (no fish), Melody read a book, and I found myself staring at the water wondering what the heck I could draw. As I sat there I saw this plant swaying in the breeze right in front of me and while it wasn't some epic scene that you write home about, I found all the little twists and turns of the leaves, the playing between light and shadow somewhat entrancing. So, I drew it. ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DavidNoceti #NocetiArt #dailydraw #dailyarts #doodle #illustration #sketch_daily #artsy #sketching #sketchbook #illosketchbook 🥛 #artistoninstagram #instaartist #instadrawing #igart #instasketch #instaart 🥛 #penandink #ink #lineart #linework 🥛 #practice #practicepracticepractice #practicemakesprogress 🥛 #landscape #trees #camping #clarkfork #california
