Floating Away – Part 1

Floating Away – Part 1

I’ll start with full disclosure these are not my images. These were shot by my brother a few weeks ago at some balloon festival. He asked me to take a crack at them and see what I could do for them since my editing juju is strong and he doesn’t waste his life sitting in front of computer have an extensional crisis about how his images look while Googling Photoshop techniques. These were shot on a Nikon D3100 which makes…

Show Some Emotion

Show Some Emotion

Musicians and singers make great faces! I figured I am sitting on a bunch of them so why not share out for the world to see. I have also not had time to go and shoot anything meaningful lately so I’m going to the well. Plus most of this stuff has never been seen before. If I keep with the theme of concerts its because I am shooting another on Monday so be prepared for an onslaught of metal music…

One Man. Three Faces.

One Man. Three Faces.

I have no idea who the guy is. Just one of the random opening bands I shot. I tend to shoot the small acts as warm up for the main. I know it sounds weird, but I like to warm up before I shoot. Most are just garbage images that I toss away but it helps get me into a frame of mind to slow down and enjoy the experience of taking pictures. I will admit that shooting and event…

Calling Elvis

Calling Elvis

I was going to write again but I got distracted when I started to go through what I was going to write about. I saw this image and new I had to edit it. I know he’s a guitar player in a band I shot. What band? I have no idea. I just liked the image. It’s like he’s channeling Elvis and the sunglasses are classic Elvis style sunglasses. I know because I own a pair. Plus the Johnny Cash…

Into the Mic

Into the Mic

While it may seem I only shoot random objects around cities and flowers. Reality is I do shoot concerts and events. This is Carla Coates (NSFW) of the band Butcher Babies. I had the pleasure of shooting one of their concerts. The Butcher Babies has two lead vocalists and they were fantastic from a photographic perspective. They knew I was there and made sure I got some shots that other bands would never give me. Now, being crushed up against the stage…

Shredding

Shredding

Shredding is slang for when you play fast and do solos on guitars while playing heavy metal. I promised the band I would deliver the images to them and this was the last image I edited from the set. I have other images to be edited from non-concert stuff I shot this weekend but after a 4+ hour marathon editing session I’m not overly inclined to sit in front of a monitor and edit for another few hours. Plus I…

Feel It?

Feel It?

I need a break from Panama editing and I have to process images for a couple bands that I shot that were openers for this man’s band, King’s X. This is Doug Pinnik who is the lead singer and bassist and I managed to get this shot. I was wide open and either shot this with a 90mm or a 150mm. I can’t remember and too lazy to go back and look at EXIF. I know I was shooting at…

The Pool Players

The Pool Players

This was shot a couple weeks ago but just getting around to editing them as I have been endlessly shooting flowers and other items in Southwest Florida.  This was shot in collaboration.  The person I was with was borrowing my camera periodically throughout the evening as she was interested in photography.  So while I can’t tell who shot what, I know she shot some of them.  There were two cameras used, the Sterling Ricoh GR and the Mighty Canon 330….

Metal Life

Metal Life

You would never guess it if you saw me that am a metal music fan but if you pay attention to some of the post titles its a bit of a tip off.  Anyways I had an opportunity to go to a concert and shoot all the acts with the final being the mighty Anvil.  These were just some random shots.  The band on stage that you see is Martyrd.  While metal heads may look like the scariest people on…
