The Return to Crosstown

The Return to Crosstown

IMG_0246.JPG

           After a lengthy hiatus, Maddy the Great and I returned to Crosstown! We were greeted by many well wishers and there was a ceremony in our honor welcoming us back. You totally had to be there. Ok, no one knew who the heck we were, but we walked in there like we owned the place! You gotta stunt on them every now and then so they remember who they are dealing with. 

             So why the hiatus? Well, Crosstown lost its flavor. I remember being one of the first to shoot in Crosstown and it was awesome, but then everybody started shooting in Crosstown. I mean everybody! Everyone’s work looked exactly the same and I’m no fan of being similar to other photogs. Every kid with a basic Canon or Nikon with a kit lens was doing $35 photoshoots there. I hate to be the old man, but it just really sucked. So we bounced to find other places to shoot.   

          What brought us back? Well those same kids with their T5s and D3300s have lost that same passion as well. It was also a pretty day out and Maddy loves the central atrium. I pretty much have no say so. If she wants to go, then we are going. So we brought the a7iii and one lens; the trusty Samyang 35mm f1.4. Here’s what we got! 

            I’m not sure if we will be coming back as regularly as we did before, but we really enjoyed it. Brought back lots of memories. I definitely remember what brought so many photographers to the building; that amazing natural light!!

Juicy J performs at Minglewood Hall

        Last night, Memphis legend Juicy J performed at a packed out Minglewood Hall. This was a concert I had to attend because I'm a huge fan of Memphis rap. Juicy J takes me back to my high school days when I had a pair of crappy 10 inch subwoofers attached to an even crappier 200 watt amp that my cousin gave me. I told it was bumping and that's all that matters! 

       Anyways, Juicy J brought along fellow Memphis rap alums Project Pat and Lil Wyte. He also brought along XO/ Roc Nation artist Belly, who was actually pretty good. He was a mix of DJ Khalid meets Drake infused with the Weeknd.

         All in all, it was a good concert. I wish Minglewood had seats so I could sit down between sets, but that's the old man in me talking lol. I had a great time!!

For the Love of Sunsets

For the Love of Sunsets

       I love taking pictures of my daughter, when she decides she wants to, and I love capturing sunsets. So why not combine both? Challenge accepted!

      Being a father is one of the most rewarding aspects of my life and I will drop anything to hang out with Maddy. Just hearing her talk about her day at school amazes me. This little person that I helped create is just an awesome kid. I think it's because she reminds me so much of who I was when I was her age and also who I wanted to be when I was her age. 

        On this particular day, she wanted to go watch the sunset. I was shocked because she has never made that request. So I was pretty excited so I grabbed the camera and we headed out the door. Maddy made it more amazing than I could have ever imagined. She asked what star was next to the moon that evening. It turned out to be Venus. 

        It was truly a great experience and I'm so glad we got to do it together. Thankfully there's a big open field across from my apartment and I can get some pretty dramatic sunsets. 

      The sunsets are beautiful, but I think the time spent with Maddy was the highlight for me. I won't go on a tirade about fathers that don't take out a little time to spend with their kids, but I would encourage all dads to try to spend more time if possible. I just let her talk and I listen. I learn so much about her as a little person. I can't wait until our next adventure.

Little Ears on Broad Ave

Comment

Little Ears on Broad Ave

      My daughter, Maddy, has this coat and for the life of me I can't figure out what animal it's supposed to be. I don't think she knows either. It's got these little ears and spots all over it. It's the most confusing thing I've ever seen. So much so that my friend Elizabeth and I had a little debate about what exactly it could be. We also took the chance to break out our cameras and capture this controversial coat on Broad Ave. 

 The coat in question

The coat in question

      As you can see, this coat can go a lot of different ways. The ears are like a teddy bear but the spots are maybe like a giraffe or baby deer. It doesn't add up to me. It's a great conversation piece.  Maybe it's a jaguar. I'm so confused about that coat, but one thing we agreed on is the ears make the coat insanely cute.

      Armed with our cameras and wide angle lenses, we were off to Broad Street! I must admit that I had to bribe Maddy with candy, cake and roller skating to get her to go along with this. She's not as into having her picture taken as some kids might be. I have to catch her in the moment or bribe her.  

21 and Up!

        There were also really neat and unique items along Broad. There's always some little thing you'll find that stands out. I love how off the path that Broad Street is. It's kind of in the middle of 2 pretty sketchy parts of town. It's like a cool oasis of sorts.        

      It was a great day. We did some walking and talking. Got some great shots. Had cake, taco soup and a bacon cheeseburger at Broadway pizza. We even managed to get a cool sunset pic. Go check out Broad Ave and visit some of the cool shops, restaurants, and the wicked cool water tower!

Shot with iPhone 7

      Not sure where our next adventure will take us. Any suggestions on where we should go? Maddy's only requirements are cake and/or ice cream.

NYE at Hard Rock!!

    I love New Years Eve! It's one of the most wonderful times of the year. It's a time to reflect on the highs and lows of the previous year and also a time to think of all the great possibilities of the new coming year. Another reason I love New Year's Eve is the parties! Ok, maybe that's the main reason I love New Year's Eve. 

The walk towards Hard Rock

   I decided to take my talents to the Hard Rock Cafe to party and for the guitar drop at midnight. There really is no other place I wanted to be on New Years Eve than being in the crowd of 40,000 plus on Beale Street. There's nothing like it. Well, maybe New York City does it a little bigger, but we are bit more hospitable. 

What a great crowd!

      The party inside the Hard Rock was electric! There were partygoers from wall to wall and DJ Howard Kew definitely kept everyone up and dancing the night away. Who would be sitting down at a New Years Party anyways? On my way in, I met some tourists that traveled all the way from Australia to spend New Years in Memphis! Now that really made me proud of my city!!

     Back outside on Beale, the concerts were everything! Hip Hop legends Al Kapone and Playa Fly were on stage along with others. There was something for everyone that loves music. 

 Then the magic moment was upon us; the guitar drop! It was just as epic as I imagined it would be. Here's a clip! 

       Last night was great and I'm so hopeful and optimistic about 2017! I have a few New Years resolutions that I intend to tackle as well. I want to thank Hard Rock Cafe of Memphis, Just My Memphis, and Real Memphis Blog for all they have done to make this all possible. Next year I hope to see you at the party! I wish everyone a very happy and successful 2017.

Trapping in the Bandos

    I've recently gotten into doing more urban exploration, which is basically exactly what it sounds like. Memphis is a great place to go on an urban exploration. The downtown/South Memphis areas are great because a lot of the older buildings are being renovated or demolished for newer buildings. 

     On this particular evening, at an undisclosed location, I met up with a group of super amazing photographers. We playfully called ourselves the Suicide Squad that night. We even had a Harley Quinn! The name was fitting because we were definitely on a suicide mission to get some great shots.

    Entrance into our undisclosed location was pretty straight forward. We walked through the front door. After investigating a bit, we decided to head to the roof for some cityscape shots. The ladder going up was super sketchy, but I overcame my fear of heights because everyone else did it.

   Next up we decided to head back inside the building to get some shots inside. One of the guys brought some smoke bombs along and the real photography work was done.

   While snapping we noticed a really cool tunnel that led underground. It was a great backdrop for more photos. The depth of the tunnel mixed with the light was everything!! It would also make for some cool smoke bomb shots.

      I really enjoyed this adventure. Not only did I get to take some great photos, I also got to hang with some individuals that I call my friends. We are all completely different, but we all share a love for capturing moments and experiences. I can't wait until the next urban exploration meet up. Until then, I will be going out myself to find new and interesting things around Memphis.

Exploring the Old Bridge with a new camera.

Exploring the Old Bridge with a new camera.

     So I recently upgraded from my Sony a6000 crop sensor to a full frame Sony a7ii. It's been a great upgrade thus far and my photographs have definitely improved. I'm also using more manual focusing lens as well, which is further pushing my skills to the limit. 

     I recently met up with a group of my awesome photographer friends to take some shots at the Old Bridge aka The Memphis Arkansas Bridge. So I headed out with the new camera I purchased 2 hours prior with a Canon 24mm 2.8 FD manual lens my buddy let me borrow. 

 Way up!

A Chocolate Affair

A Chocolate Affair

One of the great things about being a blogger is being able to attend a wide spectrum of events. I love meeting new people and experiencing new things. Another great thing about being a blogger that also is a photographer, is being asked to capture the experience of events. I believe this has become my niche lately. I really try to make the reader feel as if they attended by seeing my photos.  

Last Friday, I was contacted to be the photographer for a Christmas party for International Paper hosted by Phillip Ashley. Any excuse to have Phillip Ashley's chocolate is all it takes for me to gladly accept. I also knew this would be a great event to network as well.  

The Experience

The event was held at Opera Memphis, which is an absolutely beautiful venue! It was a small holiday party, but the guests were very fun.

The Chocolates

Now this is what I came for! I can't get enough of Phillip Ashley's bite sized creations. I must admit that I am addicted. Are there meetings for this type of thing?

As you can see, it was a great holiday party! I left with only one concern; I should have went home with more chocolate!

Adventures with a camera

Adventures with a camera

I had a lot on my mind last night and my way of getting over things is to go on a random adventure with my camera.  

My first stop was to Saddle Creek, but there was more lighting than I preferred. I did snap a quick shot.

Next stop was to the Carrefour on Poplar and Kirby.

Last up was Ridgeway Baptist Church. This was hardest shot to get. Mainly because I forgot my tripod and it was getting cold.

Fall Photoshoot with Kelsey

I recruited my baby sister, Kelsey, to take some fall pictures for my photography portfolio over the weekend. She was a bit reluctant but as we began taking pictures, she got more and more excited. Here are the results. I definitely am going to look into more off camera lighting for more creative shots, but these still turned out great.

The Amazing World of Bounce Flash

Photography has become a real hobby for me lately. I never intended to become a photographer initially. I bought my camera because I wanted better pictures on the blog and I didn't have the money to pay anyone.  

Some 9 months later and I've become quite the shutter bug. I love experimenting and trying new techniques. My latest is the art of bounching flash.  

 

IMG_1144.JPG

It's essentially bounching flash off of something to get softer, more natural lighting. The results are amazing! I won't bore you with the technical lingo of it all, but the technique really works. 

I bounced the flash behind me to create more fill flash. Now, the ceilings were white and low so the results vary based on the environment, but I at least no what I can do inside a house.  

Also, my mom's dogs or Petey are always my test subjects on new techniques. So pet lovers enjoy!!   

All pictures taken with these settings:  

f2.8 1/80 sec 800 ISO flash manually set to 1/32 

IMG_1136.JPG
IMG_1137.JPG
IMG_1141.JPG
IMG_1140.JPG
IMG_1145.JPG
IMG_1149.JPG

So there you have it. Bounce flash is real! I can now incorporate this into more shoots in the future. I was always anti-flash, but now I'm a bit more open to the possibilities of it. 

Some none pet examples:

It's Dolph!!! Young Dolph Concert

Comment

It's Dolph!!! Young Dolph Concert

A few weeks back I went to the New Daisy Theater on Beale Street and saw Memphis bred rapper Young Dolph. I grew up in the Westwood neighborhood, so I have a bias towards rappers from the South Memphis area. Dolph has a rap style that's very unique yet still Memphis flavored at the same time. His music reflects on his life on the streets of South Memphis, which can be a very tough place to grow up. There's lots of poverty, hopelessness, drugs, but some with determination make it out of this situation. That way could be the right way or the wrong way, but when you see no other options, all ways seem better than the current situation. 

I'm always proud of Memphians making it to the national stage. We don't have many that have done this, so it's a brings a certain pride for the city and the talent it produces. 

Ok back to the show!

Dolph pulled up to the New Daisy with a long procession of expensive cars. There was a Porsche, Ferrari, Maybach, Rolls Royce, and a Mercedes. That in itself was very impressive. He's obviously done pretty well for himself. I think that's saying it lightly. 

The show was a sellout. Dolph certainly brought the city out. I really enjoyed the energy he had in spite of announcing that he was coming down with the flu. He still gave his fans the experience they've come to expect from at the insanely popular rapper. 

As you can see from the pics and video, the show was lit! 

I would like to thank Young Dolph for the great experience, the fans for not getting too wild, and New Daisy Theater for being gracious hosts. Next time Young Dolph touches down in the city, I will definitely be there.

Tailgating at the Southern Heritage Classic!

Tailgating at the Southern Heritage Classic!

The Southern Heritage Classic is the official start to the fall for me. The game features Jackson State University against Tennessee State University. I'm biased towards TSU because I've spent a lot of time on that campus for some reason or another. 

The highlight of the game usually is the halftime show, which showcases the Battle of the Bands! For me, the tailgating is the highlight. Did I mention how much I love food and just being around it? No? Well I do!!  

image.jpg

When my cousin invited me to come to a tailgate party he was attending, I jumped at the opportunity. His friend, Greg Shaw and family, were hosting and I decided that if I was gonna partake in breaking bread, that I should at least snap a few pics.  

image.jpg
image.jpg

There was food everywhere and I was in heaven! I didn't even mind the countless Dallas Cowboys fans that were walking about! Lol.  

Well, this is probably already too much reading, so I'm just going to post the pics. I know what you came for!

As you can see, I had a great time! I ate until I was on the verge of taking a nap in the car! I didn't make it inside the stadium for the game, but you could definitely hear the crowd from outside of the Liberty Bowl. 

I hear those tigers from Tennessee State University won!!

Memphis' Finest

Memphis' Finest

Last night, I went out looking for some new material with my friend Brandon, IG: @b_will_made_it. We were just exploring the city in search of some fresh photography subjects. We ended up at an undisclosed location trying to gain access to the roof, but were not of luck. There was no ladder and neither of us had great building climbing skills. 

We went back to our cars and magically a police officer was sitting there in his cruiser. We initially thought someone called the cops on us, but it seemed he was doing some paperwork. So I thought this would be a great time to snap some pics! I spoke with the officer, who was very cool, and he was willing to let me snap a few pics of his car.  

image.jpg

Shout out the the officer, I didn't get his name, for being so gracious and cool. The cops get a bad rap these days, but there are lots that are very nice and friendly. Even to two black men walking around with backpacks from behind buildings late at night! Lol.  

I do commend the men and women of the Memphis Police Dept for all the hard work they do keeping our streets safe. Thank you all.

Delta Fair in Long Exposure

Delta Fair in Long Exposure

It's that time of year again Memphis!! The fall or autumn if you're fancy lol. When I think of the fall, I think of amazing weather, football and the return of Gods gift to man; pumpkin spice! I also think about the fair. I remember going to the old Memphis Fairgrounds to go to the Mid South Fair. That was way back when LibertyLand was everything! Well, that fair has moved further south to Mississippi and we now have the Delta Fair.  

I've recently became really fascinated with long exposure photography and what better way to brush up on those skills than at the fair! So here's my first attempt at long exposure at the fair!! Sit back and enjoy!!

 

 Thanks to my cousin Antonee for this shot!

The Delta Fair is located near the Agricenter on Walnut Grove. A bit of a warning: I paid $5 to park, $10 admission and $7 for a foot long Pronto Pup... That's not an attempt to dissuade but to being an awareness to the prices you'll encounter. 

There you go! Tell me what you thought about the pictures in the comment section below! Not bad for a first attempt, right? We really love feedback here at one901.com.

MidSouth Renaissance Faire!!!

MidSouth Renaissance Faire!!!

Over the weekend I got a chance to attend my very first Renaissance Festival! Actually it was called the MidSouth Renaissance Faire, which is totally a better way of putting it. I have always wanted to go to something like this, but I've always been a bit intimidated about not being accepted. Contrary to my fears, this event was awesome!! 

Ok this sets up like an epic tale. When I first arrived, I was greeted by the pirate Davy Vain. No joke! He literally came up to me and requested my help on a mission to have his papers signed by the queen! I thought it was a joke, but he was true to character and even spoke in pirate talk. I instantly knew this day would be epic. 

Davy Vain


So I helped Davy get close to the Queen, who was very friendly, and she actually signed his papers. Davy Vain was so stoked. But one must remember that you can't always trust a pirate. I mean he is a pirate ya know. 

Immediately after getting his papers signed, Davy Vain was seized by the Queen's guard! I'm not sure what he had done prior, but I wasn't going to wait around to find out! I bolted! I don't know what became of old Davy Vain, but I'm sure he made it out of there alive. He seemed to be pretty resourceful. 

Ok, back to reality. I want to say something that I feel is very important. I previously mentioned not attending to a Renaissance Festival before because I felt intimidated about not being accepted. I want to say that the crowd was actually a lot more diverse than I imagined. It really showed me that those fears were based upon preconcieved notions and those thoughts are what keep all people divided. I was pleasantly surprised to see people that looked like me there that were actually participating! I felt very welcomed through the event.  

My favorite part of the Mid South Renaissance Faire was the jousting! It's usually one of my first thoughts you have when thinking about Medieval Times. I've always wanted to be a knight! They look so cool in their suits of armor. 

I really enjoyed my time at the Mid South Renaissance Faire. It was definitely one of my favorite moments of the summer. I can't wait until next year. I might even dress up! The one things I wish I did that I forgot to do is to have a turkey leg! Well, I guess I have something to look forward to next year! Go check out the MidSouth Renaissance Faire Facebook page for more pics and also the One901 Facebook page for more pics as well.

Artistik Lounge!!

Artistik Lounge!!

Every third Sunday something happens in Midtown Memphis that all music lovers should take a look at. At 1555 Madison Ave, inside Minglewood Hall, there's Artistik Lounge. "It's a Lounge Mane" is the slogan and it definitely fits the venue. There are couches and oversized pillows throughout along with some really dope overhead lamps. The vibe of the place is definitely ultra chill and cool.  

image.jpg

The event is hosted by Eso Tolsen while Siphne Aaye mixes up some of the flyest tracks in hip hop and R&B. Oh, they also have a bar! I mean you can't proclaim a lounge environment without some libations. 

 Eso and Siphne freestyling

So last night the Artistik Lounge featured one of my favorite Memphis MCs, Gangsta Blac! His album 74 Minutes of Bump got me through high school. When he was rocking the mic with fellow Memphis rapper Playa Fly, they were the best thing going! Nobody Needs Nobody is arguably the best song to come out of Memphis to this day.  

image.jpg
image.jpg

Gangsta Blac came through and delivered exactly what I experienced when I was a youngin beating on my desk with a pen making beats; that raw underground Memphis hip hop! The crowd was loving it! It really took me back to a great time for Memphis hip hop. You know Memphis rappers created not only jooking, but crunk music as well, right? 

image.jpg

So mark your calendars for the next Artistik Lounge! I don't have the date in front of me, but I will definitely update you guys via my IG (@_one901) and also via Facebook (one901).  

The cover is $10 so it won't break your pockets and it's a great event to network or bring a date. There were some local movers and shakers in attendance, along with local musicians like Marco Pave.

So there you have it Memphis! Here's another great event that the city showcases that's not only fun but positive. I would like to thank all the people that help with Artistik Lounge each month. You guys are awesome and very gracious. 

I can't wait for the next set and I hope to see more of the city participate as well. So come on out and enjoy but remember, It's a Lounge Mane!

Petey, Sunshine and Sunflowers

Petey, Sunshine and Sunflowers

Most people who know me also know about the two widely popular people in my life, Maddy and Petey. Maddy is my daughter and Petey is my son. He's my first born. Technically I bought him, but he's still my kid. 

image.jpg

 So yeah my kid has 4 legs and I'm in no way ashamed about this. Petey Geronimo is my 10 year old rat terrier and he's pretty much been attached to my hip since he was 6 weeks old. Those ears have been the same size his whole life. He's one of the best dogs I've ever owned and our personalities match incredibly.

    

 

So we decided to head to Shelby Farms to check out the sunflowers before they went away. This was Petey's first trip and he was in heaven. He's never on a leash, but he's never had this much space to roam and be a dog. 

image.jpg

The sunflowers were amazing! There were busy little bees and butterflies everywhere working for the fall and winter and of course it was hot!! The Heat of Memphis is legendary and today was no exception to this. 

 

image.jpg
image.jpg

We had a great walk and day together. Petey ran until I had to carry him back to the car. I guess his age is finally catching up to him because he's been sleep on the couch since we got home. 

But before we left, we had to take some awesome selfies!!! It's pretty much customary!  

 

image.jpg
image.jpg

Go check out the sunflowers before they are gone! We saw them right off the side of Walnut Grove. It would make a great outting and definitely a great spot for a photo shoot. You can also see the corn stalks growing for the corn maze that's coming in late fall.

The Buzz on Broad Ave

Being the city explorer that I am, I decided to take a ride to the Broad Ave Arts District. I didn't have any particular plan in mind. I just wanted to get lost and take a few pictures capturing this area. I went around 4 on a weekday, so there wasn't the usual crowd. This is an up and coming area of Binghampton and they have really turned things around. If you've never been, prepare for a little photo tour. 

There you have it. I only had about 30 mins so I wasn't able to go into the various shops and restaurants. I will make sure to go back soon and do something more in depth.
