the baby sitters

A while back I shot this band of a local author, Gregg Hill, who had just won an award for one of his novels. They played some awesome music, and I had great fun shooting it. They have a show coming up at the Lion’s Lair in Denver on July 22nd, and I can only recommend going there if you like good music.

dirty disco dance party

I’ve been wanting to photograph the Dirty Disco Dance Party at Eastside Tavern on Friday nights for a while now, and last night I finally took my camera with me. I was playing around a lot with my new pocket wizards and off-camera flash and finally decided to position the strobe on a shelf above the entrance door, right next to one of the speakers. It took me a while to figure out the proper lighting, especially since I had to light both the DJ area and the dance floor with one strobe (bouncing off a black ceiling), but eventually I managed to get decent results by adjusting shutter speed and f-stop depending on where I was and let the strobe run on the same setting all throughout.

The irony was that my shoot was cut short once I had figured out my lighting and before the party even really started. The bass vibrations of the speaker next to strobe made it slowly bounce toward the edge of the shelf – until it dropped 8 feet deep on concrete. Amazingly enough, it was still looking alright and was even firing fine; however, the reflector zoom is in pretty bad shape, so I’ll have to send it in for repair nevertheless. So behold, here are some of the most expensive party pictures I ever took. You better enjoy!

Multiple Flash

So Anne and I went to the car park on Hitt Street last night to do our Multiple Flash assignment. After running into an endless series of problems, we finally managed a few good exposures. This is my select:

Blending

Last night, I was at Harpo’s with a bunch of friends, and we popped into the weekly Trivia contest. So I tried the popping flash thing a little bit. This is my select:
