I was assigned the task of documenting the dance scene that happens every Sunday night when Heybale! plays at the Continental Club by The Austin Chronicle. Here’s the shot they ran. A photographer can learn to paint vivid story-telling images with today’s digital equipment, on the spot. The instant feedback make it possible to get exactly the balance of elements and light sources that you’re looking for. Here’s a little flash/blur technique, with a one second exposure at about f/4 as ambient colorful, whimsical background. ISO 800. A little camera spin while exposing give it the streaks and glow. It’s fun to introduce depth and movement to what’s really a frozen static medium.

Heybale! June, 2005 Austin, TX
Here’s one of our local colorful, quality bands. Heybale! has been playing Sunday nights at the Continental Club for years. They play Country, and the country-style dancers come out in droves to the roots rock venue. This shot is the cover of this week’s (06/23/05) Austin Chronicle.
