How to shoot Glass in the studio

So I had a model flake on me at the studio one day, so I decided to shoot a wine glass. I thought it could be a cool little demo for shooting glass with studio lighting or strobes.

Shots in the Garden

I stepped out to the garden the other day and took some photos, hope you like them!

Kinetix at Red Rocks June 8th 2010

After the release of their third album, "Let Me In" (Purchase CD here), Kinetix is on a Roll! With a Summer tour starting with Summer camp and Wakarusa, the band bumped a date in South Dakota to Play Colorado's Legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater as a part of the Film on the Rocks Series. The movie was the Hangover, and the crowd was sold out. Kinetix played a great selection from their catalog, and gained many new fans, people expecting to cry with laughter, first danced their tails off.

30db at the Fox Theatre Boulder Colorado, 5/19/10

What started as an unlikely duo of Jeff Austin of Younder Mountain String Band and Brendan Bayliss from Umphrey's McGee, turned into a musical supergroup. With the addition of Nick Forester (host of E-Town, and member of Hot Rize) on electric and slide guitar, Cody Dickenson (North Missisippi Allstars) on Drums, and Colorado bassist and producer Eric Thorin rounding out the sound, the people at the Fox on the 19th were in for a treat. This show marked the first stop of the short tour and and was by no means a sloppy show. The band was well rehursed and hit it hard from the get go. Jeff and Brendan's friendly banter back and forth let the fans know it was going to be a fun tour.

John Butler Trio Red Rocks 6/4/10 with Medeski Martin and Wood, and State Radio

It was a beautiful Colorado summer day, and an incredible line up for a Friday night at Red Rocks, the greatest place on earth!  The night started off with State Radio who's hard slamin' Rock and reggae rhythm got the crowd movin as the amphitheater filled. Next on the bill was Medeski Martin and Wood, who added a jazzy groove to the vibes, and really got the energy  bouncing off the rock walls. After MMW, Butler wanted to bring it back to earth, to pay respects to the indigenous people of the land he was about to overcome with his own musical expression. They sang and danced to traditional songs and brought the crowd of nearly 9000 to their feet. Then just before the native dancers left the stage, John Butler Trio erupted into "Used to get High". It was truly a magical moment to see the crowd really movin with the lights raging, the dancers in the background, and the band killin it!
