Danny & Ashley (part deux)

Last post, I showed y’all my good pals from High School leading up to their wedding. I only got  a few shots during the ceremony: A. Because I was in the wedding. B. Because they don’t like when folks take (flash) pictures while the priest is speaking. But I managed to get some decent shots during the ceremony and some afterwards. Enjoy.

Danny & Ashley (part 1)

Some good friends of mine got married over the weekend and I got to be apart of it. I even was in the rehearsal and everything. I did some of the reading, where I stood in front and read. But you know I had to take pics, although I wanted to be the photog for the wedding, I’m still happy to be apart of their big day. Even though they’ve practically been together since the beginning of time. Kidding, but seriously. So in a two-parter, here’s them before the ceremony.

Ben Rector

Ben Rector came into town at the House Of Blues and I figured I’d go see him live. I’ve become a fan of his through hearing his name constantly from friends as well as my roommate playing his music a whole bunch. When I got there, didn’t recognize who the first act was.As I noticed I was one of the few people in the room over the age of 21. Those kind of moments make me sad about me being an old fart. But photography note: these were shot in Manual. They look dark and with some editing I got ’em to look decent. So if you think they suck, I worked with VERY low lighting. Take that with a grain of salt people. If you have some tips, let me know too. But nevertheless, Enjoy:

Downtown Wondering pt.2

I went by the ol’ J.O.B. and I put in extra time at the meter so I figured I’d go explore downtown some more. I brought my camera well. I  brought my new lens as well, it’s 70-300mm to test it out. And its a trip to work with. You get some good shots, as longs as you stand about 50 feet back. If I work in sports, it’ll come in quite handy. So here’s part deux of a probable continuing series. Unless I get bored with it. But Enjoy.

River to Well (Gallery)

Last week, I told y’all of how I managed to win Honorable Mention in a photo contest and my pictures would be featured in a gallery. Well to show that I wasn’t joking and I’ve followed the policy of “Pics or it aint happen”. I wasn’t able to be there because it was 700 miles away, but a friend of mine Abby (who’s also a photographer http://www.abbydavisphotography.com/) did attend and got shots for me. Here it is y’all. Enjoy.

River To Well

Last month I entered a photo contest called “River To Well”. Basically, they raise money to build  wells in poor rural villages of South Africa. And they do that through a photo competition(the entry fee for photos go directly to it).The website is:www.rivertowell.com . Any who I entered about 5 photos and although I didn’t win, I managed to make honorable mention (YAAAY!) I really wasnt expecting that especially having 2 of them make it. They’ll be feature in a week long gallery showing.  So here’s the 2 pictures that made it in the River To Well gallery.  It’s called “Parish Lounge” and “Bike Crash Aftermath”. But check out “River To Well”. They good peoples.

Dave Barnes @ the House of Blues

This past Saturday night, I went and saw one of my favorite singers Dave Barnes @ the House of Blues. I figured I treat myself to a late b-day gift, last saturday I had to work. (Note: Don’t ever do it.) Anyway, I saw in once at a show in Kansas with Matt Wertz, them two together was a good show. Dave’s great live. Sounds like his records. But I forgot how much of a comedian he is as well. He told a couple of random but funny stories. The main one being of his TV debut on a soap opera. In all a good night. Oh and btw photo note, it was hard to shoot. There was very little lighting in the room and on top of that they moved around a lot. So these were the best I got going through my film. But enjoy.

New Project: Peach Milkshake

So I’ve had this thing with peaches for a while now. Maybe because I’ve lived in Georgia before. I don’t know. But I’ve managed to make some crazy desserts with peaches. From Pound Cakes to Smoothies (which is normal). I got the idea to make a milkshake from Chick-fil-A. They had it there for awhile and I never bothered to try it until recently however, it wasnt there no more. So I figured what would it taste like. So I did. It was pretty good. Here’s the rundown. Enjoy. Oh and again, if you like what you see, feel free to subscribe or comment or whatever. What will I make next with the Peach? No idea.

Downtown Wondering

Yesterday I had to work, and i figured since I was gonna have to be downtown most of the day, why not do some random shooting. Photography that is. I was looking for the House of Blues, but I couldn’t find it. Eh, I figured it must’ve been farther down from where I was walking. But nevertheless, here’s what I found in one-part of downtown. Enjoy. Oh btw, if you like what you see, feel free to comment, subscribe or whatnot. No big commitment or nothing, just like to know what y’all think of this. But Enjoy.
