DALLAS CYCLE STYLE is looking for half a dozen photographers who are available to shoot for a few hours on Saturday April 21st 2012 (Earth Day weekend!) The GOAL: to create artistic/professional photos of cyclists around town for our 2nd annual Cyclist Census.

Photographers can choose their own locations if they have a good spot in mind to catch some everyday cyclists (not necessarily the spandex-in-training cyclists, though that’s fine too) or – we have a list of some good spots they can choose from. We’re looking for the 2012 Face of Biking in Dallas and as we found last year, a talented photographer can steal the show. So…this year, we’re making it a photo competition too! We’ll have prizes for 1st through 3rd and honorable mention winners (chosen by a panel of professionals), as well as the People’s Choice Face of Biking in Dallas winners announced at the Cycle Style Fashion Event April 28th, 2012 – 10pm at the Continental Lofts Gallery in Deep Ellum.

Here’s an idea of the types of photos we’re looking for (fun! colorful! exuding personality!) Lights, reflectors & assistants are all allowed.

The commitment will involve picking up the release forms and sandwich board a week or so before the day of shooting (from either a North Dallas or Oak Cliff location) and then dropping-off your signed release forms, sandwich board and CD/DVD/returnable flash drive with hi res image files at same location before noon the Sunday after the event. It will involve a pretty quick turn-around to get the photos up for online voting before the winners are announced at the next Saturday event!

Interested photographers should contact Amanda at dallascyclestyle@gmail.com. More details at DallasCycleStyle.com/the-event

I was recently contacted by a fella named Arnoldo Hurtado Escobar about shooting a commissioned concept for him. Arnoldo is a a painter who recently graduated from UNT and who will soon be moving to Cambodia for two years to learn more about life and serving others. He wanted to shoot a take on “one of the most intriguing biblical mythologies” – the story of Adam and Eve as found in the bible.

After talking it over we decided to approach it together. One of the points within that really interested us was the idea that a creator would turn its back on its creations for proving themselves to be faulty, broken and human… just as it had created them to be. It seems like a lot of people’s fear and/or doubt of God and even the existence of God are an unfortunate byproduct of such teachings. The other point of interest was the entrance of “evil” as something that came from outside of us, a spiritual principality and even boogeyman that we should all watch out for because it may incite us to do wrong.

We both felt that most of our problems in life were of our own making and came from within ourselves. The idea of personal responsibility. Having said that, we didn’t have any desire to refute anyone’s beliefs or minimize a story or book that contains beautiful teachings and does so much for so many. Just wanted to kick the ideas around.

When all was said and done, we ended up with something more portrait than concept and found the idea difficult to translate properly, but the ideas were still implied. I posted one of them on Facebook and unfortunately it was reported and deleted within a few hours. I was pretty disappointed because I felt both the image and the accompanying words were tasteful, unoffensive and couldn’t be classified as containing nudity. I was given a seven day photo uploading restriction which is pretty inconvenient because I use Facebook in conjunction with my website and blog to share all I shoot with the masses.

I am at least thankful I could share this here though and I hope you all enjoy it. Be well and happy shooting, my friends.

My memory is quite sketchy on this but I do have the magazine at work with all the info so I’ll expand it later when I do the whole set. I found these two negatives, some 8 months ago and have been waiting for my friend to get them scanned. I don’t recall what camera these were made with but probably a Pentax (6×9) or Hasselblad I borrowed. We didn’t have one in the paper’s pool but a couple staffers had their own. I can tell you this was shot very early in the morning on Plus-X b/w film. And it looks like it was hand-held based on the tilt in the second of the two consecutive frames. But the ss had to be 1/4 or so and that’s sharpness that just isn’t possible off a tripod. I know this was a regular part of the routine for these guys because I must’ve seen it and decided I needed a special way to get what I wanted here. I do know we ran this huge in the Sunday Magazine in The Morning Advocate.

Oh yeah, this was a boot camp for first-time offenders at one of the Louisiana penitentiaries. They weren’t hardened criminals. Yet. I went there numerous times from check-in day until graduation day. My best friend, Keith Lawrence, did the reporting. We teamed up on numerous stories together for the better part of 7 years at two papers together. He went over to the dark side and does PR for Duke University now.
