I took a walk around the neighborhood (Esplanade Ave) while I was waiting for my friends to arrive and I found some neat things to take some shots of. A cemetery, statues, some neat shadows, a park and a particularly entertaining pelican. Have a

I went out to Biff Buzby’s Friday Night Cruise in North San Antonio tonight. It’s basically a bunch of folks with really cool vehicles who show up at this great burger joint and hang out for awhile. So what better time to grab the camera and take some shots? I must admit, I’m not really all that pleased with the shots I got. It got dark much quicker than I thought and I didn’t take a flash. Next time, I’ll try to remember.
There was an Elvis impersonator there (See bottom picture). Now I grew up outside Memphis and lived in Vegas so I take my Elvis impersonator’s very seriously and this guy was pretty good! The whole outing was a complete blast.
Now before we get to the pictures, I just have to put a plug out there for Biff Buzby’s Burgers. The service was great and the food was outstanding! Best turkey sandwich ever! Go check them out at 12702 Toepperwien in San Antonio.
Well, on with the pictures.
It’s that time of year again, and thank God they moved that time of year! I did the first and second Scott Kelby Photowalks when they were held in mid July but in San Antonio, it’s so hot, I skipped out on the next one. Now they have moved it to October and I was ecstatic. I decided to challenge myself and only take my 85mm prime and see what I could come up with. We met up in front of the Alamo (which seems to be where we always meet) and walked around downtown San Antonio. I enjoyed it, but really didn’t like the results. That being said, I usually put up some photos here whether I like them or not, so here’s a few examples of what I got. Point and laugh at will…
All of these were shot with the T2i at ISO 3200 with a Canon 85mm lens. Black and Whites were processed in SilverEFX Pro 2
Had a blast today at White Knuckle Ranch! You can see the full set on my flickr page.
My new 85mm f1.8 Canon prime lens got delivered this afternoon so I popped off a few shots just to see the results. I must say, I really like it. I think it’s going to be great for portraits. Very fast and has a great, sturdy feel in your hand that the 18-55mm and the 70-200mm just don’t have. If I actually take some time, I think this thing is going to be able to help me pull off some amazing shots. I took this shot of Woody the Wonder Akita in about 30 seconds from putting the new lens on the camera and spent about 5 minutes total in Lightroom 3 and Silver Efx Pro 2.
A few artsy type still lifes I took over the weekend.
