Ever wanted to be an amazing flow artist, but don’t have the time and resources to apply to practice and sweet gear? Well, thanks to modern technology, you can kind of pretend! At Friday’s shoot, the wonderful duo of Kassandra Morrison and Samantha Novak wore the GoPro while getting their flow on. Their names are linked to their Facebook pages, so go send them some love! And while you’re at it, check out VIRTUALVIBE and Zzr at Overclocked Remix, where they put together the song featured in the video.
The Doo Dah Video
Because I’m awesome, I shot video and stills at the same time at this weekend’s Doo Dah Parade. My favorite shot is the swing dancers. There was a pickup truck leading them and playing music, so I jumped on it and shot video with my GoPro from the moving truck.
The audio is OC ReMix #2736: Donkey Kong Country ‘Percussion Hijinx’ [DK Island] by Acadia Percussion Ensemble
by David Wise, Eveline Novakovic, and Robin Beanland. If you like it, you can also find it here: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02736
It’s some great music, so be sure to show them some love.
I finally got to hang out at Musica in Akron. I mean, I shot some video by the sign a little while ago, but last night was the first time I actually go to hang out inside, and I look forward to coming back.
Random Rab and Saqi at Beachland
With my schedule filling up with more work, I’ve had to cut back on how many of these events I can attend. But, I’m so glad that I came out to Beachland on Saturday night. I tend to hang out in the margins when I shoot, but I decided to try to reach out and everyone was fantastic. It was nice to finally feel like I was a part of an event rather than just shooting it
Samantha Novak’s Electric Forest Audition
I’m sure that anyone following the site remembers my shoot with the lovely and talented Samantha Novak. Those photos are actually just something that we shot on the side while working on her audition video to perform at the Electric Forest event this summer. Getting in would mean the world to her so, after you watch the video, go follow her on Facebook and YouTube. Then, share this around with anyone you can. She’s worked so hard for this, and any support will go a long way.
Following the Sign
How have I never gotten to shoot at this location before? I’m in this area all the time, but it wasn’t until Samantha Novak called me up for work on one of her projects that I got to see this fantastic sign outside Musica in Akron. Samantha, the promoter from the Beachland events, asked me to help her with a video audition to perform at the Electric Forest this year. We shot video at a couple of locations (and you’ll be seeing that video as soon as it’s finished), but slowed things down for some stills by this sign. She’s a great model, amazing performer, and just fun to hang out with. So, be sure to check out her page (https://www.facebook.com/SamanthaNovakPerformance) to keep track with all of the amazing work she’s doing.
Back to Beachland: Part 2 (Electric Boogaloo)
Just as promised, I’ve got part two of the Beachland event I posted yesterday. However; where yesterday featured more of the crowd and general performers, today’s focuses more on the stage headliner and performers. It couldn’t be helped. DJ Govinda was amazing and the dancers were nothing short of spectacular.
As always, if you like the photos, and want to support all of the work that goes into them, it would be fantastic if you could click that ‘Donate’ button over there on the right sidebar. At this point, the only way that I can continue to shoot these events is if I am making at least a little to cover all of the time I spend shooting and in post. I’m trying to upgrade my camera, (which will mean better event photos and video) so every little bit helps. If you don’t have the scratch to contribute financially, no need to worry. You can still help out the site by subscribing to me here on WordPress, sharing the gallery on social media with your friends, and ‘Liking’ my official Facebook page.
Back to Beachland: Part 1
I think my photos are getting popular with the local ‘Flow’ scene, since I keep getting asked to come and shoot more events. Either that, or they just like me for my personalty. Nah, must be the photo thing. Either way, I’m still having a blast shooting these. The people are all fantastic, and then getting to listen to some new music while I shoot performance artists just makes these events something I always look forward to.
As always, if you were over at the Beachland Ballroom, like the photos, and want to support all of the work that goes into them, it would be fantastic if you could click that ‘Donate’ button over there on the right sidebar. I’m trying to upgrade my camera, so every little bit helps. If you don’t have the scratch to contribute financially, no need to worry. You can still help out the site by subscribing to me here on WordPress, sharing the gallery on social media with your friends, and ‘Liking’ my official Facebook page.
Since I came home with so many photos of the event, I had to split the shoot into two galleries. The second one should be up tomorrow morning, so keep an eye out for those.
