What it is?!?!?! Not sure why I said that, but I couldn’t decide how to start this blog post, and that was the first thing that came to mind. So down to the skinny. This post will mostly be about some of the pictures I’ve taken over the past week or so. There have been two events that are really worth talking about: Blake and my trip to the State Fair of Texas, and the photo shoot with Ally David at Bend Studio.
Blake and I decided it would be fun to take our cameras and tripods to the State Fair to take some evening/night long exposures. The fair is so full of lights and motion, it would prove to turn out to be a great place to work with that type of photography. So we headed down before sunset and scoped out a few places to shoot. We found my friend Jack Pyland who owns several of the food stands at the Fair and got some good food and a tour of a few of his stands. I even got to see Caz, my old skydiving buddy who I only see a few times a year now. Before the night was done we ate Jack’s Fries, Quesadillas, fried Snickers bars, friend Oreos, and a few beers. Fried Snickers…. Who thinks of that??? I bet it was a health nut who was rebelling. It could be that, ort or someone who is 29 years old with heart disease from years of eating fried candy. But that is inconsequential because they were good!
The second event was the photo shoot with Ally David from Bend Studio. Ally is my Yoga instructor and the owner of one of my favorite live music studios. She also produces larger shows that are hosted at other venues around Dallas. On top of all of that, she is stunning, and I was fortunate that she asked me to take some pictures of her. We played around with a few strobes to try some different effects and got some good pictures. Lots of trial and error, and lots of learning for me!!
I’ve decided this post is going to be wayyyyy toooooo long because I think I’m going to put way too many pics in here. So I should probably stop my jabbering here and just post pics. Check for links at the bottom of the page. WHAT IT IS!!!
