Livenation was nice enough to let me come through and shoot the Houston stop of the Under the Influence tour that was right down the street at the Pavilion tonight and although it felt like it was 3,000 degrees outside the entire time, I had a blast as usual with any Wiz concert. This is the 4th or 5th time I've shot Wiz I think and he has definitely improved and changed his performance entirely every single time. Even though it was a tour/show and headlined Wiz, the main reason i was there was to see Jeezy since I have never had the chance to actually see him live and I basically lost my mind screaming every drug rap he performed at the top of the lungs, concerts. Love'em.
The show was also supported by Mack Wildes, Iamsu & Sage the Gemini, Ty$, and Rich Homie Quan who all put on great shows and garnered more crowd involvement than I have ever seen for openers at that venue. Check out the pics after the jump. Read More
Although the event was a couple weeks ago I figured it would be a good time to post some of the shots that i did for not only the summit itself but G Pen as well. This was easily one of the biggest events to date and a great warmup for the 1st ever NYC Sneaker Summit on September 21st which will be a part of The Source360 Weekend of which I will hopefully be in attendance.
Sidenote: Sodium Vapor lights are absolutely the devil. The. Devil.

I went to HEB today and grabbed one of the Pick a Six 6-Packs you can get in the grocery section and since I was absolutely bored out of my mind I figured I would shoot them before they were gone (1 didn't make it). The setup overall was very simple with one softboxed strobe at an angle over the bottle and a bare strobe behind for an edge light as well as a silver card for fill on the left side. The background and foreground was accomplished with a frosted black acrylic sheet (for bottom reflections) and a black foam board. The only post that was done to these images is a slight levels and white balance adjustment. Now, Shiner or Saint Arnold, if you're reading this...feel free and send some product over for "testing."

I came across this genius campaign from DDB Mexico for Volkswagen that paints a grim but very serious picture for anyone that thinks taking a picture of themselves is more important than actually paying attention to what they're doing. I don't know if a campaign like this would fly in the US but is definitely an important piece of advertising and really reinforces VW's focus on safety of not only their product but the people that use it.
