We met up with pro surfer Ryan Seelbach at one of his favorite San Francisco surf spots, which happens to be at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge. Ryan talked to us about his first time in the Mavericks surf competition and his non profit, "Save the Waves." When the day turned to dusk, we got some beautiful shots of the Golden Gate Bridge with our Lytro camera.
We headed downtown to Sons & Daughters, where co-owner and head-chef Matt McNamara gave us a taste of his award winning cuisine, fresh from his own garden. Matt talked about his dedicated garden, what it meant to win a Michelin star so early in his career, and his form of art which we call cooking. Best of all, we got to snap some great food pictures in his low-light restaurant with our Lytro camera before chowing down.
For our final "Sharing" lesson, we teach you how to share the pictures you've taken with friends and family - as well as how to add filters and effects - with the help of San Francisco rock band, The Stone Foxes. We spent the day checking out some of the places that inspired their music, and snapped some great Lytro pictures all along the way. At the end of the day, we put the photos on Myles' computer, had some fun with living filters and perspective shift, and shared our photos online
