Basement Studio!

11 12 2009

Yesterday, the UPS guy came by my house once again to drop off my new backdrop setup that I ordered from B&H Photo. My setup includes two Impact ten-foot stands, a twelve-foot crossbar, and a 10×24′ white muslin sheet. I might pick up a roll of seamless paper sometime, depending on how much I like this muslin sheet. I am still trying to find a way to light all of it for full-body shots. I really like the pure, bright white look. But if not, the slight grey gradient works for me too. Anyways, here are two quick test shots I did last night.

I’m looking forward to getting more involved with portraiture.

Houston Autorama’s Tuner Galleria

10 12 2009

Well, the last event I covered was on November 27th in the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX. It was called Tuner Galleria, which was a small section of the O’Reilly Autorama show. A good friend of mine was hired as the executive photographer and was asked to gather a few more photographers to work as his “staff.” Lucky me, he asked me to be one of them.

Here’s just a few of my favorites from that event:
Larry Dye's Custom Widebody Porsche Cayman

Larry Dye's Custom Widebody Porsche Cayman - Interior

Eric Shih's Custom Widebody BMW M3

Team Nextstage's Porsche GT2

I have entered the world of blogging.

10 12 2009

Well, I read an article stating that every photographer should try to set up a blog, so this is what I have set out to accomplish.

Here, I will post updates every time I shoot and include a photo or two and a description of what the shoot was all about.

I’m pretty excited to get started!
