Midlake is a rock band from Denton Texas. Earlier this year, I saw that they would be playing a show june 3rd at The Foundation so I thought I would try to get some kind of photo credentials. I spoke with the band's manager and he said that would be okay. So, my friend Morgan and I were off to lubbock! The show was fantastic. I was shocked at how good this band is. If you get the chance to see Midlake, please do yourself a favor a drop a few bucks to see this band. I actually featured one... Continue reading

This article covers how to: Manually set exposure in movie mode! Avoid the dreaded "Jello effect" Use your beautiful footage in Final Cut Studio flawlessly. My father recently gave up the D40x and purchased a D90. The reason he bought a D90 is simple. It has better compatibility with Nikon's autofocus lenses.

Post by Spencer Starnes This is my final project for my first photography class at UArts this year. The assignment was "Emulation". The purpose was to emulate a successful, published, fine art photographer. I chose William Eggleston.

At the time his photography was displayed color wasn't viewed as an viable artistic medium. Henri Cartier-Bresson has been cited by many as a major influence for William Eggleston. John Szarkowski, a... Continue reading
