So I’m sitting here watching the NBA playoffs, editing and archiving some old shoots and thought I would update real quick.  Today marks the beginning of the 2009 Austin Aztex season, and I’m pretty excited to be on board as their official photographer for the year.  I’ll be covering every home game, and I hope to make a few of the road games as well.  They open up their season tonight at 7:30p.m. at Nelson Field next to Reagen High School.

I also FINALLY purchased a copy of Photomechanic, which has simplified my workflow 10fold.  I can honestly edit and caption a shoot nearly 20 minutes faster with this program.  I used it while I was editing photos while I was the Photo Editor at the Williamson County Sun, but I never got it for my laptop…  If you happen to take photos and you aren’t using Photomechanic, you can download a full demo copy for a couple of weeks.  Beautiful piece of software.

In other news, I went and bought a Nikon D1H and a Nikon 35mm f2 lens last week.  They were so cheap I couldn’t pass them up and they looked like they were new.  I’ve had the pleasure of using the D1H in the rain and I’ve managed to drop it already.  It will be my new bicycling / traveling camera.  No harm if I drop it off a cliff,  it gets broke or stolen.

This is a panorama of nearly 40 photos taken from the 50 yard line inside of Darrell K Royal-Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas.

Now I’m still trying to learn how to properly stitch images together in Photoshop, but beyond basic stuff, I’m still learning.  These photos are pretty fun to make and trying to come up with a view someone hasn’t seen before can be tough.  This is my second try at it and I hope to make many more.  I think this would be very cool with the stadium full right before the start of a football game.  I took this one following the Spring Jamboree game…..

  1. I have to make it public. It’s suppose to be secret, however most people in Austin, Tx knows about it. The police department has machine that can read your mind. A machine that can read someone’s mind will be used to violate EVERYONE’S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS!!! It can also change the way you feel. Sexual impulses, anger, and paranoia are all feelings they can induce to you at their fingertips. This means it can cause a girl or boy to feel sexual, and get raped thinking they wanted to. Its like a drug. This is just one of the many crimes they commit with this machine RIGHT NOW!!!! They are using it right now to spy on their citizens RIGHT NOW!!! People will be spied on in there homes, without a warrant. (this means someone will be able to watch you during sex without your knowledge.) There are a lot of people all over the United States knowing about this machine. The police department is able to use it to spy on people in their own home. During interrogation they keep a person dazed, confused and not sound of mind to cohersed them into making certain statements. This is a violation of these people’s constitutional rights. Start thinking about how the government has given the police department a weapon to commit not only one of the biggest civil and constitutional rights violations of all time, but to commit war crimes such as rape, brainwashing, and toturing people without the victim’s knowledge. I know it is hard to believe, however if you happen to know someone in the police department who cares for you enough, just ask if they have a machine that can read and control people’s mind. After that, I would also like people to think about how we are able to get the government to stop letting the police department violate the people’s civil and constitutional rights, and committing war crimes against there own citizens. Major media companies have knowledge of this, but are not willing to broadcast it. People need to find out and talk about this issue.
