University Texas Tower HDR

It isn’t everyday you get a chance to shoot photos of the University Texas Tower HDR with the tower being all orange! So when you get the chance make sure you shoot it right! I shot this photo with a Canon 5D with a 24-105 F4 lens on a Benro Tripod using my Promote control to get 9 exposures. During these times you will find numerous photographers in the area. I am still waiting to get the photo of the Tower in Orange with the number 1 displayed on the tower using each particular window lit up to create the 1.

My typical work flow includes Lightroom, Photomatix to merge all 9 photos and then some Photoshop work.

Reckless Kelly Celebrity Softball Jam

Every year I get the privilege of attending and shooting photos for the Reckless Kelly Celebrity Softball Jam. The softball game starts at 1:00pm every year at the Dell Diamond home of the Round Rock Express in Round Rock Texas and right after this hilarious fun game the concerts begin on two stages at about 3:00pm. Led by brothers Willy and Cody Braun, the band wanted to create a signature event with friends from the worlds of music and sports combining America’s pastime and music to benefit Austin’s youth. In eight years, the Reckless Kelly Celebrity Softball Jam has raised over $300,000 for area youth leagues (South Austin Little League, Balcones Little League, Montopolis Little League, Del Valley Little League, The Miracle League at Town & Country, The Miracle League of San Antonio, Greater East Austin Youth Association and RBI Austin) including a $150,000 renovation of Mabson Field in East Austin.

Come on out this year on May 15, 2016 for a fun filled day of celebrities pretending to be athletes, a silent auction of too many items to list here (1 year was a red rocking chair autographed by Sammy Hagar) and a years worth of Texas Country Music in an afternoon and don’t forget to stay for the FIREWORKS!!
