I’m attempting to complete the tedious task of importing and cataloging all my work into Lightroom.  While this is quite arduous, it is giving me an opportunity to revisit a lot of old photos and find some hidden gems.  Here’s a few of them.

Alternate Routes

The toolbox in the singer’s hand is actually a musical instrument.  It’s filled with things that go “clank” along with a microphone.

Rock ‘n Roll Silhouettes

Filed under: Concerts, Photography — Tags: , , , , , , — JW @ 12:56 pm

At the Will Hoge show last Saturday, the lighting at the 40 Watt in Athens, GA was anti-stellar, so I decided to play around with some silhouettes.  Here are some of my favorite results.  You can check out my entire Will Hoge gallery here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jasonwilliamson/sets/72157602439961780/

On this shot, I absolutely hate the spot light, or “floating white orb”, but removing it made the photo confusing and unbelievable that the subject was lit without actually seeing the light behind it.  I might play some more and see what everyone thinks.

I was going for a softer look with this one, so the slight blur is intentional.  I’ve got an entire gallery of intentionally blurred images, to the point of abstraction without distraction…hmmm…abstraction without distraction…I like that.  That will be a title of something one day.

This one is my favorite.  I upped the blacks and the exposure to give a high-contrast effect and removed a couple of the overhead bright lights (that just looked like a floating white ball at this point).  Aside from that, no other modifications were made.  It’s amazing what you can get with just a few simple lines.

College Fest concert photos

Several colleges in Spartanburg, SC teamed up to put on College Fest, a free concert event downtown last Thursday.  The event featured Atlanta band B.o.B., local band After August and headliner Matt Wertz.  Here’s a couple of my favorite shots from the show.

Matt was taking a shot of the crowd with his iPhone to post on Twitter.  You can check out Matt’s photo here: http://img9.yfrog.com/i/4jt.jpg/
