It was so cold that I was only able to stay out long enough to snag one quick bike rack photo.
Last night, I was invited back out to the Metro Studio Spin Jam out in Akron for some more photos and video. This time, I decided to take greater advantage of the studio’s setup. An entire wall is basically one giant, seamless backdrop and the other walls are covered by curtains. I figured that it was the perfect chance to test out my new light stands.
Since I’ve been uploading GoPro images from my bike trips so often, I’ve started to look for alternate routes to keep things from getting too stale. I didn’t have much time to explore, but I did manage to explore a new way to and from where I work. First, I went through some back roads behind the country club and then I found a new vantage point for one of the Twin Lakes behind a local tavern. On the way back, I found a middle route between the short and long ways home.
With a new house, comes a new neighborhood. I spent a morning just wandering around with my camera. We’re only about 75 yards from a lake, which which I hope has some great potential for future shoots. In the morning, fog rises from the water, and it makes for some interesting silhouette effects. I’m going to keep a close eye on the lake to see what else it has to offer.
