Had the opportunity to cover Gunner Stahl's portrait gallery with Chris House and Peach Castle Atlanta at Elevator Factory on Thursday night. Some of the cooler people on the guest list included Lil Yachty, Mike Will Made It, Metro Boomin', Father, and Swae Lee of Ray Sherman; all of whom I had the opportunity to photograph. Here are some portraits from the night.

Business Tips

Someone's sage advice

Annie Leibovitz

Annie Leibovitz is probably a name everyone knows, but she's such an amazing portrait photographer, I wanted to post this article.

Here is a cool video that shows six different photographers photographing one man. The twist is that each photographer is given a different perspective of the same man. For example,one photographer was informed that the person they were photographing was once in prison and another photographer was informed that the same person was a millionaire. It is interesting to see how each photograph is so different from one another. The video shows how a photograph is shaped more by the photographer behind the camera than the person, object, or place in front of the camera.

A Family Affair...

A few weeks back I asked Tim how could I recreate an image of a flyer that a friend of mine showed me...It was two guys pulling a rope as if they were playing tug of war. Pretty straight forward image; I just needed to know how to light the subject. After he broke down what I should do, I scheduled for my friend, now client, to come in and start shooting! We decided that we wanted to create something new, something fresh, [something] that we've never seen before. And this happened. I was pretty proud of the image myself but after hearing the excitement of the cast and seeing their faces light up as the images popped up in Bridge, I felt a sense of calling. Like this is really what I am placed on this Earth to do.

Backstory: the image is for a flyer for a play, Family Affair. After the final poster is made, I will upload...

Thanks Tim for showing me how to light this bad boy!

My friend just sent me this video. It's about a high school girl who films students' reactions to her telling them they're beautiful.  It's a wonderful idea!

Cory Arnold

Cory Arnold has really awesome documentary photography based in a little fishing town. Check out his website.

Displacement Mapping

In Digital Photography 2 we learned about displacement mapping, and created our own from our photographs.

Let's Calibrate our lenses!

I thought because my lens was new it wouldn't need to be calibrated. Apparently that assumption was wrong. Here is a short article that demonstrates how inexpensive and easy it is to calibrate your lense.
Hope you all find it useful.

Stranger Danger

Here's a few photos I took for the Stranger Danger assignment for Documentary.  I ventured down to Little Five Points and met some really awesome people.  Here's some of my favorite.
