You know what, I get tired of playing it straight with photos sometimes. These are all silly shots, they get silly processing and I love it.
Rain be damned, these badassery shots just called out for some of that Fight Club/Die Hard 4 uber-grittiness.
Quick reminder, all, the next photo walkabout is tomorrow evening, 6:30pm, Coxhall Park, Carmel, Indiana. Bring a camera of any variety, because, well, it’s about the pictures and not the equipment. And boy, we do intend to take some pictures.
OK, I finally got some overdue photos processed tonight, so let’s start with the results of the other week’s “Nick and Derek’s Photo Walkabout: Night Edition.”
Thanks to Bill, Tony, Nakul, Sarah, and everyone else who came out with Nick and I despite the late hour. It was a good deal of fun.
In an hour thirteen the next walkabout commences, so it’s time for y’all to close out the Facespaces and start making your way to the intersection of New York and West in downtown Indy to meet Mr. henry and myself for a couple hours of night shooting at the canal.
Fail to do so and we take no responsibility for the life of regret you will lead as a result.
In continuing build to get more of y’all out to this week’s walkabout, here’re some shots I took out at last week’s with DJ Jared.
Again, this week’s is Thursday, downtown Indianapolis. No cost, just show up and be cool. We’re meeting at West and New York, be there before 9pm.
Now, the pictures!
Nick and I will once again be representing Grimey Studios and Roberts Imaging in the field as we invite everyone out for a free night of shooting, advice, and community. This time we’ll be hitting the White River Canal, downtown Indianapolis. Grab a camera, grab a friend (or two), tell a student, and meet us out there. For added fun, it’s a late shoot. We’ll be meeting at 9:00PM so we can try and catch the canal at night, with everything lit up in gorgeous and unusual colors.
This is a great photographic experience for shooters of all experience levels. For those of you just getting going you’ll have the challenge of shooting a night scene and get some experience with IS and tripods, and for you seasoned vets it never hurts to push yourself to find interest in what’s presented to you.
You can check out some shots from last week’s shoot at the Roberts Raw blog.
Nick and I also maintain a Flickr group through Roberts for anyone who shows up to any photo walkabout to post shots to, and you can find that here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/nick-and-dereks-walkabout/
As always, these photo walkabouts are free, just show up. We hope to see you there.
Quick update from the land of the day job, but the Grimey Studios / Roberts Imaging photo walk for this week is happening at 5:45 EST over at the intersection of Illinois and Washington in downtown Indy. Hope to see you out there.
Whew, s’been a while since I blogged this up here, but if you’ve missed the Grimey Studios / Roberts Imaging photowalks, we’ve been doing them, I’ve just been forgetting to say so.
So. We’re walking this coming Tuesday, which is all August 18th and stuff. Meeting place: downtown Indianapolis, Illinois and Washington (under the Artsgarden, outside the Champps). Bring a camera, a friend, a spouse, extra batteries. If you’re down, bring a buck or two to throw towards whatever model I can scare up to work with us (yes, we’re gonna try to go back to shooting models, I like’em.)
This’ll be rain or shine, my droogies. Rain we go inside to the mall and Artsgarden, shine we stay outside around the same. It’ll be good for urban portraiture: glass and steel and cement all around. And aesthetically-pleasing glass, concrete, and cement at that.
So, if you want more pictures like the one at right (that’s Erin, who kindly donated her time and sexiness to our last photowalk with Nikon and Jeff Penn), then be sure to, you know, be there, if you can.
Tomorrow is the… somethingth… photo walk Nick and I will have hosted. 6:30, outside Roberts downtown Indianapolis. Yadda yadda. But, I gotta say, the days are getting prettier and prettier, might be about time to start bringing models back out, I think. I’ve been itching to work on some more natural light portraits for that pesky Grimey portfolio I’m still kinda working on in the background.
Anyway. Photo walk. Tomorrow. Grab a camera, come meet Nick and myself, we like seeing you out there with us.
