Honky Tonk Drummer on Flickr.A company wanted “Nashville” themed images for their office so  wandered around downtown the other night shooting street scenes. One idea I had was to capture Nashville nightlife so I shot through the window of one of the downtown honky tonk bars as this band played for a large crowd. At some point the drummer spotted me and hammed it up through the window. For me, it is a true “Nashville” shot, although it won’t work for a company interior. That’s ok, it’ll go on my wall somewhere, I’m sure.
By the way, if anyone knows this guy, get in touch with me. I’d love to get him a thank you copy of the shot.

Yesterday’s Winners on Flickr.My weekend attempt at shooting street photography in Nashville. It’s something I rarely do. I waited about 15 minutes for someone to walk under this sign for a long closed music store that used to be THE place to get your instruments. I’m glad I waited. The woman decked out in gear for UT Vols, which used to be THE winning team, feels just right.

I had some other shots that were deep red like this when I scanned at negatives. For the others I toned the red down. For this one I didn’t.

JFG is a coffee roaster. I remember the strong smell of roasting coffee every time I walked around the old city during my college days. I tried to find history of the company but didn’t have much luck. The electric sign was removed from its original location a few years ago and restored.

Lite Brite on Flickr.Camera: Nikon F3
Lens: Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/2.8
Film: Kodak Portra 160
Exposure: About four minutes (guessed it and was slightly off)
Recently we went camping in Reliance on the banks of the the Hiwassee River. It’s quiet and at night it’s dark…except for this damn light on a vacation home across the river from where we stayed. I swear stadium lights produce less pollution than this thing. The frustrating part, nobody was home so the light wasn’t necessary (although it would aid anyone breaking in). The only positive I saw…was how it lit this tree.
I’m really wondering if I need to check my scanner settings. It seems I’m getting some seriously oversaturated colors. I had to desaturate this one in PS.
