For regular readers, you might be asking that question. I understand the question completely. It’s been a while, hasn’t it.
The simple answer is “Yes.” Taking photos is still fun, and I want to get out and do more. The truth of the matter……. I’ve been busy at the gallery, and my personal revenue stream has been down, therefore I haven’t been out to any super cool locations lately.
This morning I hit that breaking point. The one where I just had to go shoot something. Fortunately I had a few ideas in mind…..
Just yesterday I lost out on a sale. It was an image I had yet to make. The courtyard at the Hassyampa. I just haven’t taken an image there that I liked yet. The customers did get some other Prescott pieces, but they left disappointed that I didn’t have a very specific image of the hotel.
So this morning I went and re-shot around the hotel. I got one that I like too. 🙂 I got a few others there that I liked as well.
After shooting around the hotel (again) for a while I made my way back to the gallery. A customer was waiting for me. More canvas to run. That’s always a good thing.
Once I wrapped up with my client I grabbed the tripod and the 5D once more and ventured over to the Bird Cage Saloon. Now, I’m not a bar person. But I thought it would be cool to shoot the interior of a bar or two today. I mean, it is Whiskey Row, right? Eventually I’d like to shoot in Matt’s, Jersy Lil’s, Holligans’, and the rest of the booze halls in town. Just to say I did it…….. 🙂
Keep in mind. None of these are final edits or anything. And none are for print. I just had to get out and exercise my camera! 🙂
I thought several times about going into the hotel, but didn’t. If I read correctly and remember correctly, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright designed it. All cool shots.
That’s a neat shot of the Firehouse Kitchen Rich! I hope you poke in and take some progress shots during the TI build out.I’m going to need some shots of my Italian Plaster I’m putting in for the owners Matt & Aaron.
Bloody Mary….the perfect hangover concontion!
Still looking sharp as ever, man…good work!
Love the elevator shot. The colors are terrific. Have you seen/tried PTLens, an exceedingly simple app for correcting barrel or pincushion distortion, perspective control, and other ills? Only $25 for quite a nice suite of features that you might find useful among your add-ins.
PTLens is available at http://epaperpress.com/ptlens/index.html
Glad you got out and shot. I was busier than I anticipated. We’ll have to make plans to shoot this coming weekend.
