Weekly Wrap-up, San Antonio Edition

What day is it? Seriously – it’s kinda hard to keep track at this point. I think it’s Friday and therefore we should probably write a wrap-up and bring you all up to speed on the craziness that has been the last few weeks. We’ve been down in San Antonio Texas, shooting pieces for the monster project that has us busy all month long. From Seaworld to the zoo, the golf-course to Texas Hill country, it feels like we’re slowly working our way through every single piece of the city – meeting new faces, having unique experiences, and of course making photos all along the way. We’ve got a ton more to share from the past week, keep reading to see what we’ve been up to…

We’ve had no shortage of early mornings these past few weeks, including a lovely 5:00am call time for the shot seen above. Gotta wake up early to get that morning light.

Pair those early rises with a few very late nights, like the shot above from a very iconic San Antonio Saloon. We shot it the only time we could – after all of the customers left.

The lack of sleep has been worth it though, we’ve been working nonstop to capture the city from every angle imaginable.

With all of the craziness, we even managed to make time to hit the links and get in a quick game of golf. Of course, we were doing it Crisman style, with C-stands, octabanks, and generators.

You might have seen this photo on Instagram, but I couldn’t help post it again. We’ve had an amazing opportunity to make some new friends this past week. You’ll be seeing more of this guy when we head back down to Texas next week.

Both big and small, we’ve had a chance to meet and photograph all the members of the animal kingdom.

As well as some strangely rigged tiny guitars. I wasn’t kidding when I said we were really digging deep and shooting every aspect of the city.

It’s been a wild week, captured beautifully by our new IQ160 back. Texas hill country has never looked so good.

As far as what you may have missed this week on the internet:

 - We go in depth about how we travel and what gear we like to take with us

 - Coincidentally (we swear it’s a coincidence), the Stobist also shares his travel kit, which is considerably lighter than ours

 - Our rep Heather Elder releases the finale to her Community Table SF Series, The Dessert Part I

 - … and The Dessert Part II

 - While on the topic of Reps, APhotoEditor has a good read on the process and questions involved with finding a rep

 - The ASMP blog also has a poignant look at how to interpert SEO, or not worry about it at all…

Last but not least…

Yup, this was my desk one day these past few weeks. The emails never stop, but at least I can write back while watching Shamu at Sea World.

    Ahh, I see you guys picked up the IQ160 too, we just got one in at the RIT cage. Can’t wait to try it out! How do you like it?

    It’s super awesome. Stellar image quality and the new LCD/touchscreen interface is one of the best we’ve used on a camera system.

    I am curious to see you using the MF. How come over the DSLR?

    I have been thinking about it but, don’t know if there is that much difference, and can you charge for it?
