Nicholas1 I received a phone call, totally last minute, from Tila Real Estate company the a few days ago informing me they needed a local artist to display their work for the monthly ART WALK that takes place every second Thursday of the month in West Seattle.  I was immediately excited as it would be my second chance at this and I wanted things to work a little more smoothly this time.   I talked an employee named Anne pronounced as it’s spelled not (AN).  Awesome lady who helped both my setup as well as the tear down.  Since they are a Real Estate office they participate by covering the computers and placing table cloths on the tables to jazz up the place a little.  It’s a one day event which meant I couldn’t setup until the evening of the Art Walk.  Wine and chocolate were served and the atmosphere was over all great.

Along with myself there was another artist by the name of Nicholas Austin who showed his work as well.  His was of a musical kind and as he is a singer songwriter who plays acoustic guitar.  He brought out his beautiful Taylor guitar and started strumming away.  He was GOOD! Really good!  A sort of Jason Mraz meets Incubus.  The latter is one of my favorite bands of all times!  I noticed the Taylor guitar had knobs which means it was an acoustic/electric and could be plugged in.  I immediately asked if we would like an amp which excitedly agreed would help the overall sound.  I ran home and returned with amp and studio microphone.  Unfortunately the Tube pre for the mic wasn’t working properly but we had the guitar plugged in jammin in no time!

30 minutes before Art Walk ended I decided to take some shots of him as I had my gear(I almost always do).  It’s easy to get excited about multiple lights and setups.  My brains starts to wander with all the possibilities.  I start to setup my lights sometime to find I’m not getting the overall photo I had envisioned in my head.  Most importantly I forget how sexy a one light setup can be!  The top photograph is exactly this!  One of my favorites from the quick 10 minute photo shoot.

Nicholas Next comes the fill light to his left to give me just a little more detail….Here is that image
