Hot sticky and Sexy Pizza?

I got back from Texas this last week from shooting a Documentary there for InterVarsity. We followed around a staff worker for a week as he advertised InterVarsity, gave out free burgers and popsicles, and held a discussion about sex and pizza. It was this last event that made the paper, along with a photo that happens to contain me getting cover shots of the actual pizza. Check it out here. If you actually read the article, keep in mind that both Nick and Carlos were misquoted [Nick didn’t give bible verses for every question but facilitated a discussion about biblical principles and Carlos didn’t say anything about loosing people since last year.] Anyway, it was a lot of fun, it was really HOTand sticky (in the 90’s and 100’s plus extreme humidity!!) and we shot a lot of film (over 24 hours for a 4 minute video.)

So what does this have to do with Photography? After most interviews we conducted with video I snuck in some portraits shown above. It was actually really neat because I could utilize the lighting from the video lights and make really fast portraits. All shots were done with a wide angle zoom.
