I will be on the set of Tom Vandergriff the movie all day. I am shooting stills and behind the scenes. If you are in the DFW area you should come out and be an extra!! It is at the home of the Ft. Worth Cats. You can find the address and directions here.
DFW Photographers | Off The Grid - Dallas
It's really nice to get out of Ft. Worth and shoot in Dallas every now and then. I really enjoyed this shoot and got a ton of pictures at Off the Grid. It may take me a while to process them all. Here is another one. Enjoy!
I had a great time at the Main Street Art Festival this weekend in Fort Worth, Tx. I had some beer, cajun food, a turkey leg, enjoyed the live music and met some really interesting artists.
There were several artists from here in the DFW area. Of course, many were from out of state. I saw some takes on photography that I would never have dreamt up. It was truly an inspiration and I was very impressed with the quality of work out there! I will be going again next year for sure!
For those of you who are considering an entry level DSLR camera but plan to shoot video, you may want to look into the new Nikon D5100. It is now available to pre-order on Amazon and is the replacement to the Nikon D5000.
While Nikon's entry level D3100 shoots video, the new D5100 has a three inch swivel LCD screen and port for an external mic. It shoots HD movies in 1080p, and captures still images at 16.2 mega pixels.
Grapevine, Tx has passed a new law making all public photography illegal with it's city limits! The law (formerly known as proposition 356b) not only applies to professional photographers, but any photography. This means you can be ticketed just for using a point and shoot when on public property. The city, which has become a popular tourist destination, claims that photography has become a nuisance to tourist due to people stopping on public walkways. I plan to call the City on Monday and express my extreme displeasure!
Okay, the above didn't really happen. Judging by the response to this same post on my FaceBook there would be some really mad people if it did. So why pick on Grapevine for my April Fools prank? Well, sadly it's not that far from the truth. In January a few photography enthusiasts went to the public park on Lake Grapevine. They got out their DSLR cameras and immediately the park rangers came running over to tell them they were not allowed to take photography there. They were not able to cite a code or law, but continued to make them delete their cards! The photographer mailed a letter to the mayor, but never got a response. So watch out if you're taking pictures in Grapevine. Happy April Fools Day!
