This is Gracie and she is anything but “gracie”. She is a 5 month old Labradoodle that we took in a few months ago and have not let go of.
It took a lot of wrangling to get her to sit for this photo.
My totally darling awesome fantastically talented gurl’fren, Meghan Coffee, just played a set for the staff of Paste Magazine. Meg’s new album, Songs To Sail By, was just released this week and she is only just a little bit stressed out this week as she prepares for her CD release show this Thursday at Smith’s Olde Bar. If you are a local Atlanta reader, we would LOVE to see you there! Get your tickets here.
She also has a few more interviews and some TV appearances to take care of before opening for Edwin McCain at Chastain Park next weekend. I’m really proud of her. She’s been working on this new album for a long time and has done such an amazing job with it. I’m glad to see others standing up and taking notice as well.
Meg is still in her interview. I’m posting from my studio. Want to know where my studio is? See that guitar on the right side of the picture above? Knock a hole in that wall right there and you would be in the studio. Paste and I are neighbors. Yes, it IS a relationship I want to foster! Strategic? Yes? No? Hmmmm.
Check out Meghan’s new site as well. It just went live.
For those of you here in Atlanta, we would love to see you at her CD release show next week.
Thursday, June 19th Smith’s Olde Bar – Doors @ 8pm Click here for tickets.
She has released 4 of the new tracks on YouTube. These are my two favorite of the four. But holy cow… you should hear this entire album. I’m currently sitting next to 1,000 of them waiting to be released on the 19th. I’m so very proud of her. She has worked really hard on this album. It has been a 2 year effort with writing and recording.
:: Dear East :: (Meghan and her band of brethren. The full experience.)
:: Psalm Two :: (Just Meg and her 88 keys)
Enjoy! Her album will be available on CD Baby and iTunes later this month.
I’m getting my GOYA back on. What is GOYA? Get Off Your Arse. This was a personal project I started a few years ago that started strong and then dwindled out. I get in creative ruts when I’m busy shooting for everyone else but me. Today was a good day to get off my arse and shoot some personal work.
Today I decided I would work this technique I alluded to in the last post and nothing is more personal to me than my two boys who never get photographed enough. Cobbler’s children go without shoes and all that.
Diptychs of my two boys playing on the 4 wheeler.
I have some more experimenting to do with this technique. Tomorrow I’ll post how it’s done. Its pretty freakin’ easy really.
We have been having a great time down here in Orlando for spring break…
Since I’m a photographer, I have to talk about gear. I could not be happier with my little Olympus 790SW point-n-miss camera. It’s waterproof up to 10 feet so it has been the perfect camera to take to amusement parks. We head back to Atlanta tomorrow and I’ll post some more photos and videos of our perfect 10 trip from this perfect 10 little camera!
I bought the new Nikon D3 camera about a month or so ago and it is the finest camera I have ever owned. There are tons of resources online about the techs and specs of the camera so I won’t even go into that. A 50mm lens being a 50mm lens again (full frame sensor) and being able to shoot at ISO 6400 without apologies is all I’m gonna say about that. The D3 has gotten me excited about personal photography again. I take it with me everywhere. It is going to change the way I shoot.
Here are a few shots from my first outing with my sons and the D3.
More after the jump…
