Aztlan Arts Tattoo hosted a fire show last night! I’ve never been to one and it was pretty amazing to watch! I was grateful for having done some limited time lapse night time light painting at Richland College because I just wanted to go to this for funsies but I feel like I took some good shots (always feel like they could have been better but that’s me)!

This is the third or fourth scrimmage I’ve been to, and I have to admit I find it difficult not watching the action and taking photographs, but I honestly feel that roller derby photography has made me a better photographer! Helps that this is an amazing sport full of amazing people! Visit their official: Website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
Jayne Ochoa invited me to photograph a roller derby practice session with the Dallas Derby Devils, and I have to say it’s amazing, I found my limitations real quick shooting indoors and with my cropped sensor equipment, and lenses. Oh man though, watching them glide across the floor like sharks and then burst through a block line, and absolutely destroy each other is insanely intense, beyond that I watched them go from gameface aggressive to genuine concern and helping out each other in a heartbeat. I’ve never even considered sports photography, and I can’t say I’m particularly good at it, but of all the things I’ve tried to do for college assignments, this is the one that resonates the most […]
America Ferrera and Alicia Keys visited Richland College to encourage students to vote, it was my first time dealing with crowds and trying to keep my mind on my camera settings over the sound was overwhelming at first, but after I got used to just (mostly politely) pushing through on past people it was enjoyable if a bit insane. My wife couldn’t believe I didn’t know who America Ferrera was.
Had a assignment for darkness and light, went for an esoteric meaning of the perceived darkness of Santa Muerte, which the lady working Chango Botanica was more than happy to talk about and let me meander about and photograph things, super nice atmosphere, and I’ve been back multiple times since! There’s a good article about Chango Botanica here, and you can check out their official Facebook page. Honestly though it’s absolutely worth visiting!
As with most things in Texas, just about any time I’d get a college assignment for something (anything? Everything!) outside it rained for an entire week, but the day before the project was due I caught a break, and ran right down the block to take some photos, and was lucky enough to meet Izze, who has become a close friend and let me inside when it started to storm immediately after the parking lot photo was taken.
