Yesterday & went & hung out with a friend, and a few thousand strangers and shot lots of photos of a ton of amazing cars at the annual Austin Lone Star Rod & Kustom Car Roundup. So many amazing creations. The Hot Rod in the photo and the car in the background were both custom built by Boerne Stage out of Boerne Tx. Truly Amazing. You can see a few more examples of my car photography here.
This week I’ve had a chance to play with a 16mm Fisheye. It’s been fun finding subjects that work well with this rather extreme lens. Here is a shot I took at O’dark thirty this morning of the Austin Bergstrom International Airport just as it was starting to come to life. Take a look at my other Airline & Airport photos here.
This photo of 6th Street in downtown Austin was shot about 7:50 one evening. The great thing about photographing night shots shortly after sunset is you you get that nice “Speilberg Blue” nighttime sky. The bad thing about photographing night shots on 6th street shortly after sunset is that for a spot that is known for it’s lively crowds, there are very few people. 6th street doesn’t really get started till around 10:pm. (To get an idea what 6th street looks like on a busy night check out the SXSW posting that was shot at Maggie Mae’s right across the street from here looking towards the Blind Pig Pub.) Meanwhile… I had no choice but to take the shot while the light was right, the carriage driver could just relax and enjoy the evening while she was waiting on the night.
