Sacramento is Northern California's "other" city, and also our glorious state capital. This was my first visit, despite living two hours away my entire life.

I shot these photos using a Pentax 645Nii, which is a humongous beast of a camera. The security guard at the capital building was friendly about it, though. I don't think I was the first camera hipster they've seen.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
