last night

a set from last night at the City of Sound CD Release Show. I did a quick shoot for Go Nutz! for a magazine in Minneapolis, but the name I can't remember at the moment. Gave me a chance to really use my new lenses and camera, and I'm really stoked about the results. More on these later, for now:

Finally can put these up. Great dudes, and some really great music


also, Inauguration Day, such an important event for not only Americans, but my generation.

Visited the family before school starts, and my mom, sisters, and I went on a walk with Cricket. Super cold out, about -10 degrees with wind, but it was still fun!

These are with my new 5d and 16-35mm f2.8L. I'm waiting on my 50mm f1.2L which should come next week, and I'm stoked to see to use it on my upcoming shoots.

Now that I'm back from California, I am anxious for warm weather!

new work coming soon before school starts, I'm excited to show everyone!

Alex and Kirt

Kirt and Alex

I've been in California for 2 full days and only have 3 more left, but so it's been extremely awesome, considering back home we're having subzero highs and snow...

I've biked about 40 miles since I've been here, 15 my first night while it was super foggy, and then yesterday 30 miles with Austen's brother Alex and friend Kirt. I took some shots of the two as you can see above. I shot them with a MF 50mm 1.4, which I bought for a couple hundred bucks from Austen's work. It pains me to buy new equipment right before I upgrade everything, but it will work out fine as I've decided to wait on the 5d mark II and go with the standard 5d. Reason for my decision could be obvious: Austen is getting me a killer deal on a body with grip, saving me almost 2k, so I'll be putting the leftover amount to another solid lens, more on that when I have the equipment.

Today we spent the entire afternoon in Half Moon Bay and Big Basin Redwoods Park. We relaxed on the beach, took some good shots, and our drive to Big Basin was incredible going 40 mph down a 4 meter wide road hugged by cliffs and trees :O Great weather and good music made the day perfect. You should expect to see some of the images online within the next few days. Here's a clip from the beach:

Tomorrow we're going to be up semi-early to eat breakfast and catch the BART with or bikes over to Frisco. We'll be biking downtown all day so I'm stoked to get some good shots and bike some new terrain (omg hillzzzz). If you want to get an idea what it will be like, check out this video:

I'm in the process of finally working on and finishing my website (I swear it's for real this time) and preparing for the upcoming projects I have at the end of the month into February.

2009 is already shaping up to be a great year.
