Photo of The Day: The Barefoot Movement

So a couple weeks back, I had the opportunity to shoot a band touring through Myrtle Beach. They are a bluegrass based quartet with an awesome sound. The venue was a little place called Shell Crackers in Pawley's Island, which is just south of Myrtle Beach, that I had no idea even existed. It was a little hideaway just off the highway that ended up being a beautiful venue for any show! One of the members of the band is from the area, so this was a private party of sorts with a very intimate feel. I went for the express purpose of taking photos but ended up really enjoying the concert. They are an awesome group with tons of talent and I hope to work with them again in the future! Enjoy the images! Barefoot Movement-46

Photo(s) of The Day: My night in Black and White

So, for my sister's last Spring Break as a high school student, we decided to stay down at my family's beach house. It's a nice change of pace considering it's about the same distance to my office but a very different bit of scenery. Anyway, because our beach house is inside a gated community, they have a limit on how many cars can be at each house at a given time and that usually means I end parking in the overflow site and walking in. This gives me the opportunity to breath in the funny little streets while I walk in. These photos are walking around, meeting up with some friends and taking advantage of the eery light provided by laptops, in the wifi area. Enjoy!

Now keep in mind, these images are all shot hand held with a standard 50mm 1.8 lens with no flash. The ISO had to stay a little high but considering that I think the camera handled it very well! It was fun to be challenge by the available light and take photos unaware to some and quite obvious for others! Street photography is a very different style where you have to have a lot of nerve to not care what anyone thinks about you and your camera. Though I am no street photographer, these do have a little street flavor to them
