Thomas Truong
Born and raised in San Diego, I've always had a passion for photography and specifically capturing memories. I'm also a huge nerd and wanted to combine two things that I hold very dear to me. Conventions and Photography! Iíve spent most of the past 20 years experience shooting everything from families to real estate and products, as well as still life, and also pets. I have a strong idea that minimal editing is needed and to keep things as real and natural as possible.

Whether itís the energy of an adventurous family or an entrepreneur looking to up their visual marketing, I believe in capturing these unique stories with authenticity and cultivating images that speak to each of them. I want to make sure each image tells a story of the person Iím shooting. I truly believe (and itís a little clichť) that pictures really do say a thousand words. Every individual has their tale and I want to help them capture it.
Upcoming Dates hosted by Thomas Truong
Sunday the 8th of August 2021
Exploring Composition - Rule of Thirds Photography Meetup - San Diego Waterfront Park - 9:00 am - 2 hrs
The rule of thirds is a composition technique. It divides the frame into a grid with two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines. The method is to align the subject or main elements of your image on the 4 intersecting points, or along the vertical or horizontal lines.

If youíre new to art or photography, the Rule of Thirds is a helpful basic composition technique so you can create compelling images. Even though it is called the Rule of Thirds, it is better to consider it as more of a guide than a hard rule you must follow. There are no fixed rules as to what will make a perfect composition, because this is subjective.
