I was shooting this “meh” picture for myself when I saw some folks coming on their bicycles. Still pretty “meh,” but it filled some space in the paper that would have otherwise been wire.
Talking to her, not looking at me.
Shot some photos the other day for a story about how leaves are not changing color until much later.
Shot from the car. Ended up A1 front and center.
Surprise, its a leaf.
Having never shot food before, I volunteered to shoot the Dispatch’s 2010 Dining Guide. I know how to light, and a subject that can pose any way you want it seemed like an interesting scenario. I photographed around 12 different dishes in a week and was only guilted into tasting the food once.
So, Poppy Mountain. It’s probably the biggest hidden gem of a photo story I’ve ever stumbled upon. Someone really needs to shoot it. It’s basically a four day bluegrass music festival that brings tens of thousands of country folk from all over to a 600 acre piece of land that spans several ridges. They come with their campers, golf carts, four wheelers, vintage cars, you name it. There is probably enough beer being consumed to float the Titanic. I shot a few photos as Lauren’s grandfather, a part-owner, showed us around the place.
I hastily shot a pano (as evidenced by the one-and-a-half pickup and golf cart), but it’s not a 360. Click the image to go. The campers you see are maybe about half of all that were there and the property stretches all the way back to the tallest ridge on the right side, but back there it’s noting but four wheeler trails.
