Mildly Amusing Musings & Some Photographs



Snowball 37 with light trails

Snowball 37 with light trails

The trusty Nikon D70 still takes pleasing photos. It could be sharper but I like the trails.

From the Snowball 37 “Declasse” album release show May 5, 2013 at Maxwell’s.

I could have shot this Cadillac all day. Besides my reflection, you can also see Asbury Park’s Paramount Theatre / Convention Hall.
Oh, how I miss chrome.

Brand New Cassette!



I designed this. I’m proud of it. Also, if you are in a band & you want cassettes made, go to National Audio Company.  Seriously, they are one of the best companies I have ever had the privilege to do business with.

If you are looking to snag one of these limited edition Snowball 37 tapes, please visit their site or contact me.


Brent, Brent, Brent!

Brent, Brent, Brent!

An in camera triple exposure of Brent Clore from Snowball 37. I did layer two different color processes in post.  I couldn’t do much about the grain so why not illuminate it with a cross process look?  I still think it is a little fucked up that I upgraded my cameras only to process them to look like they came from a shitty film camera. I like this one though.

Jimmy Three Times – Snowball 37’s James Faust

Jimmy Three Times - Snowball 37's James Faust

Here is an in-camera triple exposure of Snowball 37‘s James Faust rehearsing for their cd release show. I converted it to black & white, added some quick color blocks & tilted it just a little in post. Primary edit – Lightroom 4.3? 4.4? It always seems to be updating itself. Finishing, resizing – PS Elements 10.

Top 3 Ways to NOT use HDR

I am fairly certain that the in camera HDR built into my Canon 5D Mk III was not meant for this.  Nevertheless, I love it.

To me, it is much more playful than the intended use of adding dark blue outlines to your clouds.  Oh, & I also haven’t mastered the HDR landscape done right.  When I can create those serene, dynamic images, I may cringe at the thought of using HDR for anything less.  Until then, enjoy these shots of Snowball 37 at Hellhound Studio in Rahway, NJ April 5, 2013.
