Double Exposures with Seth and Pete II

Here is the second installment of our “People and Places” project. This time Seth was on places duty while I made pictures of people. I hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoy putting the whole thing together.

Blurred Out

I did a series like this in college, and I’ve been wanting to play around with completely blurring the image and doing something similar again.  This is a small sample of what is to come.

Bobby Bare Jr. in South Austin

Bobby Bare Jr. is on a house-party tour now traveling across the country. I was lucky enough to go to the show that he played in Austin, and in fact the show was just down from my house.

I have seen Bobby play before, but it was at a much bigger venue and many more people. That is the great thing about this type of show; it’s such an intimate experience for the listener and the interaction between artist and fan is he held in a dining room instead of a warehouse.

These are the best images that I shot, and I hope you like them too.

Cheers to Bobby Bare Jr.

Space race

Tonight I tried to shoot a few stars in the sky.

Unfortunately I think too much light came from the city and I couldn’t get a great exposure. I really want to go to west-Texas and shoot out in the wide-open. These are two shots that I got off that turned out OK. Neither one of these pictures is of stars, but that’s how it goes sometimes. At least it was a bright harvest moon tonight, and that made for a nice image.

Spending a Saturday at Port Aransas, Texas

I just got back from a little road trip to Port Aransas for the day and to spend the night. It was really nice spending the time with my fiance’ and getting to photograph and swim in the gulf. I’ve never seen blue water in the Gulf of Mexico quite like this. Schools of minnow’s swam around our feet, and a few small sand sharks and trout made their way around us. Some fish jumped out of the waves, and we had fun watching the action. We even saw a few jellyfish.

After swimming for a while we took a walk up to a large fishing pier and watched the people fishing and hanging out.

All in all, it was an awesome trip and I can’t wait to go back.


It’s a nice morning

I’ve wanted to make some pictures from this area before, but I haven’t had the chance until this morning. This is the Pennybacker bridge or aka the Austin 360 bridge, as it spans part of Lake Travis coming into town on highway 360. I want to go back and photograph it at night because there are no lights on the bridge and it looks very nice moonlight with the cars going across.

I was glad that I woke up early today on my day off and rode the motorcycle up to this cool spot. The tree image is from the viewpoint of the bridge photo as well.

And here it is at night:

Austin Time Lapse

I love time lapse photography and this is a little project I did using Austin as my subject.

We’re on the move

Transportation and logistics have always intrigued me. This is a sampling of some of the unique autos and ways to get around that I’ve found in the past nine months since moving to Austin.

We Are Hex at Elysium, SXSW 2011

I had the pleasure of shooting We Are Hex last night at Elysium in Austin for SXSW 2011. It was a short show so not a ton of images, but I think that these turned out well.

Fat Tuesday, Austin Style

Austinites really know how to party. I went downtown to Sixth street last night to document the happenings of Fat Tuesday. People packed the street and loud rhythmic drum beats and music came out of the front doors and open windows of the many bars and restaurants lining the thoroughfare. Police stood guard and watched as the mass of people moved from place to place stopping to trade beads for quick glimpses of some women showing their chests for the shiny reward. Bright lights, the aroma’s of food vendors on the street and the smell of alcohol permeated the air as people continued to celebrate into the early morning hours. These images are from about midnight until 1:45am.

Hopefully it won’t take me as long to update this in the future!
