Everything is better @ 1.4! Everything!!!
I am in the middle of doing some serial backup/archiving of some of my old photos and ran across these; brought back the memories they did.
I’m taking all my old CD-R’s and burning them to BD-R….I need the physical space! (in the lock-box (fireproof safe)).
Back to the pics. These are some of the first images I took with my 50/1.4 and I had a great time shooting them. Sadly I do not use this lens NEARLY enough, either @ 1.4 or otherwise which is a shame b/c it’s a fun/cool lens; fast and versatile I say!
One thing I will say, or perhaps it’s two things now, when you shoot @ 1.4 the DOF – Depth of Field is SHALLOW!!! So much so that you should really use a tri-pod every time….but of course I am lazy and with these pics I bet the camera body never saw the TP! Oh well, part of having fun shooting is just being able to get out there and shoot! And not have to worry about this, that, and the other.
P.S. I love rust!!!

For a period of about 8months to a year (2006) I was given the chance to photograph several live music acts here in Austin, Texas.
I worked for a great little entertainment magazine Insite Austin.
While they weren’t able to pay me at least I got to see some cool acts for free and they used my images in their Insite Hinsdsite featured section.
This post and several following are some of the acts I got to shoot.
311 Was far and away to the most exciting and most well known of all the acts I got to cover….in fact, I was actually there specifically to shoot the opening act that night, Pepper! In talking with one of the concert goers during a downpour break, he encouraged me to get down there and slip into the same spot with my credentials (sticker) and have @ it with 311! And the guys working security let me!! :-)
