The shot that ultimately got me into collecting and shooting old camera gear.
When I crossed the eastern part of San Fransciso by car I never imagined stumbling on a church that wouldn’t look out of place in Moscow. But I did. I had to stop and shoot it…
his is the side door of the church where I got married. I love the old look and the mystery it exudes. The photo was edited with Snapseed.
Sylvain Bardiau is the trumpet player from the Grande Campagnie des Musiques à Ouïr, an inventive and exciting French jazz collective. I often try to use the lensbaby during concerts for a different feel. Doesn’t always work, here I think it did. This photo was part of the three submissions at the Nancy Jazz Festival Concert Photography Contest 2011 that won second place.
Narrow streets and a clear landmark make for a photo opportunity. I used the Lensbaby on this one to further reinforce the direction of the eye suggested by the high contrast.
Umphrey’s McGee’s Brendan Bayliss backlit. Probably one of the most original concert shots I’ve done.
