Remember the photos I mentioned on Tuesday? Well, they’re up. A couple of notes: Jesse wanted me to take these photos so they could fill their pictures frames. Because of this requirement, some of the photos are cropped to 8×10, which is kind of weird; I ended up leaving a lot of the photos as a 2×3 ratio (native for my camera’s sensor) because I wasn’t thinking ahead and filled up the frame too much to crop effectively. This was my first time shooting in about 6 weeks and I felt a little rusty. I ran out of battery toward the very end1. I want to expand on technique and style of the last two photos shown below, which will be part of my upcoming project that I mentioned earlier.
50.0 mm || 1/800 || f/2.8 || ISO400 || NIKON D70
38.0 mm || 1/80 || f/4.2 || ISO500 || NIKON D70

18.0 mm || 1/100 || f/5.6 || ISO800 || NIKON D70
18.0 mm || 1/160 || f/4.5 || ISO320 || NIKON D70

Note to self, remember to always, always, always charge the battery ↩
I picked up my camera yesterday for about the first time in a month and half. Some friends who are all living together requested a photo shoot, and in exchange for some beer, I was all to happy to oblige. Besides, it gave me a good excuse to pick up the camera again.
We went over the photos last night and I really enjoyed the strobed shots, so much so that I think I’m actually going to start a project. I want to shoot some uniquely Seattle scenes with people in them.
So, if you read this blog and are in the Seattle area, leave a comment below if your interested in being a photo2. It’s really easy work and will take about 30-60 minutes of your time. You can also do it more than once. And you can bring your friends.
Jen invited a bunch of people to go see her brother-in-law, Trace Bundy, perform at the Triple Door last night. I finally decided to go see him after Jen explained that he was an engineer1 and that I would absolutely love him2.
The show was amazing. Trace’s fingering is exciting to watch, even for someone who can’t play a single chord.
Seeing Trace Bundy perform songs such as “Adapt” and “Dueling Ninjas” live is to experience a swift musical kick to the head. The listener will often leave the show confused, not being able to comprehend how one man can do that with just a guitar.
Some of you may remember an incident a few months back when Jeff Staples went to Tolo. Long story short, a few of us guys got together and completely wrapped his date’s car in pallet wrapping plastic. It took about an hour and we got it all on film. I just happened to have saved a frame from the video in My Pictures folder. I found it a couple weeks back and submitted it to CollegeHumor.com. Obviously they liked it
