Weekend to shoot with friends

Free weekend to shoot in Dallas

 

Last weekend I went out to shoot in Deep Ellum with my friend Lacey.
I had a few spot ideas in mind, but I always find stuff along the way for an interesting composition depending on the look I am going for. The theme was portraits so I was looking for color and texture.

...And then the temperature dropped..while I ate a tasty turkey Sandwich and a Chi Tea. On top of that, it was very overcast. This is not ideal for most desired photos. However, Overcast gives a soft light if you know how to use it to your advantage! :-)
 

By the way* Elvis is alive. He is in a looking glass. And if you shake your head from side to side, he does a chicken dance. Yeah.


"Like this Ron?" - Sassy and Spunky was the style of this cold day shoot lol


So we braved the cold and took some shots. I wanted to practice capturing the genuine smile/emotions that make for a great photo. It is easy to tell when a smile is forced. So, I didn't want that. Plus it makes for a more enjoyable shoot. I used my 70-200 to crush the background and it is my favorite lens for portraits.



Here are some shots I knew I was going to get once I got into post:
As Andri Cauldwell (an American photographer) once stated, "To see in color is a delight for the eye but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul."

This one is featured on my 500px page as well Joy in the Wind70-200 Joy in the Wind70-200

 

We also had friends join us to enjoy the bleak weather :)

Chris, Jessica, and of coarse Tank!

No shake boarder was hurt in the making of this photo :)

 The right song can make you solo in your own way!



Shooting some inside shots to avoid catching a cold.

What!?! What!?! What!?!

 

Bank vaults make everyone a little...different :)

I am thankful for Chris's hospitality for driving and showing us the city from the roof of his building.

 

I can't do that.. Can you?

There are other fun photos. I'll post those to the Facebook or give to Lacey. 

The End!
