Photos: Palisades Wine Fest to benefit the Friends of Temescal Pool
The weather was beautiful and the wine was flowing.
As you walked up to the First Annual Palisades Wine Fest, you were greeted by the friendly staff directing you to the private Sunset Room and deck inside Gladstone’s.
All the proceeds from the silent auction items were to benefit the Friends of Temescal Pool.
There were some award winning wines being poured amongst all the wines.
All the attendees had a great time.
The wineries were all helpful and gave great information about the wines that they carried.
At the end of the event, the setting couldn’t be better for a beautiful sunset in Pacific Palisades.
- Nikon D700
- Nikon 50mm f/1.4
- Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8
Normally for event photography you should bring two bodies with different lens setups but you also need to know your environment where you will be shooting in. Since this event was in the Sunset Room space was going to be tight. So hanging two bodies on my BlackRapid RS DR-1 Double Strap was not going to be an option. Though I did at least bring the Nikon 50mm f/1.4 (Nifty fifty) and the standard zoom 24-70mm f/2.8 which in tight spots should be enough to cover all the types of shots needed. Also attached to the Nikon D700 was the SB-900 with a Gary Fong Lightsphere. For the sunset shot, that was a HDR image composed of 5 bracketed shots.
Fine wines from Charles Krug, Gallo & Barefoot Bubbly, Pacific Coast Vineyards, Cielo Malibu Estate, Herzog, Pizzulli Family Vineyards(by Cosimo Pizulli, a Palisadian), Serenity Lane, Dr Ruths Vineyard, Coquelicot Estate Vineyards, Arbios and Praxis Cellars, Findleton Estate Winery, Bodegas Paso Robles, Treatch Cellars, B & E Vineyard, WCP Cellars, Hearthstone Vineyard and Winery, Illuminare Winery, and Wades Wines were all poured.
