As I said in my last post, here are the photos from after MTV Live.
While you are at it and you got the ol’ HTML’s flowing, www.erinhogue.com/blog is pretty much the best thing ever. There are some amazing stories on that blog, and some equally amazing photos by my friend Erin Hogue. Check them out!
The new Comeback Kid DVD is coming! I have been waiting patiently to post something about it since they used my photos in the layout for the artwork as well as on the actual DVD. I have to wait until its actually out before I can post the artwork which should be in a week or so. For now, check out this trailer for the DVD. It looks amazing. My friend Randy edited it and hes the best so its gonna be great!
I mentioned the other day that I was hanging out with my friend Rob Dyer from Skate 4 Cancer when he made his way down to MTV Live. I had tons of fun hanging out with him that day and I got a lot of really great photos.
Here are some photos I took leading up to the show. I will post some photos from after the show very soon as well.
I took these photos of Jay Bentley from Bad Religion for the cover story for a newspaper in Quebec called LeSoleil. They asked if I could take some photos of him on their tour bus because the story is going to be about bands who spend their lives on the road.
We did a few shots on the bus to go along with the story, then I set up my light outside the bus against a metal shed and we did a few more photos. All in all, I think I spent maybe 15 minutes taking pictures of him. He had some great stories to tell and I had lots of fun.
Earlier this month I posted some photos of my friend James Kachan that I took in a bar and lit with an iPhone. I decided I would like to take some better photos of him so I got him to come over to my house the other day and I set up a studio to take some real portraits.
You can see my lighting setup in the last image. You can also see how little space I had to work with, but I think I pulled it off and I am happy with the results.
I was hanging out watching TV tonight when I heard some people outside yelling and screaming so I looked out my window to see what was going down, when I saw this girl dancing topless on the roof of a building across the street. I decided it would be funny to take a picture of it and put it on the internet for the world to see. By the time I got my camera out she had climbed down off the actual roof and continued to dance around on the deck.
I shot this photo at ISO3200, 1/50th sec shutter speed, f2.8 at 200mm with my 30D. Pretty grainy but all in all it gets the job done.
