Exploring Sarasota Classic Car Museum & Vintage Motors
This past week, we had the pleasure of heading down to Sarasota to photograph a conference for our friends at Firebirds Wood Fire Grill. I had a few hours of down time, and as providence would have it, I stumbled upon an automotive gem hidden a few hundred feet from my hotel. The gem, Sarasota Classic Car Museum, is the second oldest continuously running car museum in the United States, getting its start in 1953 as the century’s send Florida Land Boom was well under way.
A long time ago on an island not so far away, we had the great pleasure of putting together some Star Wars inspired images for our friends on Amelia Island. Here’s some of our favorites. Go to our May the Fourth blog Gallery to see and share them all!
A Firsthand Account of Amelia Island’s Historic Shrimping Industry
Over the past decade, we’ve had the great pleasure of capturing the beautiful and diverse stories of Amelia Island, FL for their Visitor’s Bureau. Many of those stories I’ll never forget, and this month’s adventure is definitely one of those memories that will linger for years to come.
As it is with any fishing story, the adventure began at daybreak as we gathered on the northern tip of Amelia Island to meet up with Captain Wilson and his historic wooden shrimp boat, Three Cees’s. Though the coast to both our north and south was largely clouded over, we were treated to a stunning sunrise over the marshy interior of the island.
So… Sometimes things don’t quite go as planned. This morning, and old friend and I headed out to shoot some of the amazing driftwood on the northern coast of Big Talbot Island. This great little chunk of shore just a stone’s throw from Amelia Island, provides a great location for some unique scenic photography – something that’s a bit different than the uninterrupted golden sands that line the majority of Florida’s coast. Prior to leaving, I had checked Continue reading →
We were out doing some evening work in the yard – attempting to dodge the Florida summer heat – and I happened to look east as the moon was rising above the trees. The rather low, fluffy cumulus clouds, dissipating after a day of thunderstorms, were streaming past the moon as the drifted out to sea, the moons glow creating a colorful rainbow of colors as the clouds crossed the moon. To the Western sky, Jupiter and Venus were glowing brightly as well – so, no surprise here – I went in, grabbed our new Canon 5DS, slapped on our 100-400 and our 1.4 extender, and started shooting. I began with some freehand shots at higher ISOs with surprisingly decent results (you could clearly see the phase of the Venus), but later resorted to a tripod to capture some low ISO, high aperture images. All in all, I was very impressed with the 5DS and here are three of my favorite images!
