The Dreemers/The Beyonderers

The Beyonderers
On Friday night I went to Musica to catch two of my favorite Akron bands - The Beyonderers & The Dreemers. I shot with three lenses - my ultra-wide Canon 16-35mm, Sigma Art 35mm f/1.4, and a Canon 85mm. It is fun to shoot at 16mm with the exaggerated perspective but I try not to overdo it. I also popped my flash at low power in many of the photos just to add a little separation - Musica is very dark.

New Projects

Puch Austo-Daimler Alpina
I'm working on a couple of social media projects with my studio photography at the moment. One is a new feature on my Instagram page I'm calling #MinoltaMonday. With my extensive vintage Minolta collection I've decided to start sharing a camera each week and its story(here). The other project is on my cycling Instagram page(here) ZipperCityCycles - for that I have photographed all of my bicycles and I am writing their stories. There is this large roll of seamless gray paper I found and I used it for both - I really like the look. This time of year when Winter starts to drag I always seem to jump back into trying to improve my studio photography and doing personal projects.

Whiskertin Lighting has been putting together a new website to expand their business online and over the last few months I have been shooting the images for them. We've done a mix of shooting in their showroom, at the locations they've installed at, and product photography-style shots. Here is a small selection of a few of my favorites.
