places i've never been

yesterday i was on a pseudo-assignment in greensboro. i'm waiting to see if the shots i took are going to be used before i post them on the blog. anyway, i got up at 4am for the shoot and traveled 2 hours to greensboro. once i was done i got out the map. i figured that in 27 years i've never seen this area of the state and couldn't ever imagine having a reason to be back down there. so i started driving. here's a little of what south-central-western alabama looks like. i know you always wondered.

band shoot

it's been a week or so now but i thought i would post some pics of the photo shoot i had with Act Of Congress, a bluegrass band here in birmingham.

we all met at 5:30am and went to a field near my house. we were tired, had to walk forever (some of us in heels- i won't say who), and were dodging cow patties right and left. i got bit by something that i've never experienced before but all in all it was a great session. the light was very even and the yellow flowers were perfect.

from there we moved on to some town outside of montevallo where a family had an old stable with some old equipment surrounding it. the scene could not have fit this band any better. they even played some tunes for the owners who came out to watch the photo shoot. all in all it was a great time, and i was pleased with how things turned out. here's a collage of some of the days shots.
