Is it broken?

IMG_1054.jpg

After jumping off the stage at the end of his set… Marcel, Lead vocals and guitar of band called Die Hexe , announced to the audience that he thought he broke his ankle.

For the rest of the show, he was be asked probably around 100 times.. if it was broken..

no word yet from the doctor whether or not it is actually broken.. but pretty punk rock regardless of the outcome.

Canon 60D Kit lens blah blah blah

After dropping this camera down a mountain, I’ve started wrestling with light leaks. Some may say that Light leaks are creative and artsy, but not when you are trying to take a non-lightleaked photo..Duhh.

This was one of the few on the roll that was not affected. Haven’t really figured out why yet.

Thank you so much for following, and reading my blog.

The Road. (Day 26)

IMG_4235

If you read my last blog you will know that my film camera has been put on the shelf until I can figure out how to repair it. I still have several other film camera’s, but for a bit I think I’m going to use my DSLR. The 60D and friends.

This is the road I grew up on. There are millions of roads like this road in the world. But this one is mostly home to me. It’s been the most consistent home to me.

I moved around a lot with my mom. Different cities and towns. But this road, this is the road that has always been the same road. The same tree’s. The same neighbors and their barns. The same fields and crops. Smells and sunsets.

This road is where fathers family grew up. It’s the road that lives most the stories I’ve heard of my ancestors. It’s a place I can walk where my family has also walked. The land that we have owned for many many years.

This is where I should add the ‘But’ statement. As much as I could tell you about the land and it being in line to be sold, and issues out of our control. I won’t. The Land will always be there. It just may be creating a new story or holding new lives.

Sometimes, we have to movie on to the next chapter of life if we want to continue our story.

Anti portraits?? Headless photos?

I dono.

Interesting perspective of viewing people. What would you assume differently about a person if you never saw their face?

Thanks for reading.

Drama. (day 11)

IMG_0238.JPG

I realized that I weigh about 180 pounds more than him. So I took a picture.

This is an iPhone 5s photo. – over cast cloudy day obviously – I used snapseed to edit. – at first the shot was very over exposed by the back grounding sky- so I used the HDR process in snapseed and boom!

I was hoping that this lil guy would be smiling – but he was fairly unimpressed…

Thanks for reading

Float. (Day 8)

IMG_3121

Hung out with some friends during a sesh.

Personally, I don’t smoke weed, but I will take any opportunity to photograph events that are frowned upon by society.

Maybe I was new to taking photo’s in this situation, or perhaps I was handling my light well, but I feel that non of my photo’s turned out very good. I was using the 40mm canon pancake 2.8.

I wanted to get some portraits of the guys featuring smoke.

After some serious manipulation in lightroom I decided to post this one.

I really want to practice more with light smoke and faces- check out another blog I did on this same guy with a cigarette underneath a light except on film. CLICK HERE
