AJC and The Envelope Pushers Recording @ Sneaky B Studios (5.22.10)

Posted in 2010, Behind The Scenes, black and white, Digital, Photo Post, rock and roll by William Patrick Butler on July 29, 2010

for a weekly photo blog i sure have been forgetting that “weekly” part :p

sorry about that everyone.  the summer months are always my busiest months, but i’ll try to do better!

speaking of doing better.

two months ago, back in may, AJC invented me to a recording session him and the other Envelope Pushers were having with Byron over at “Sneaky B Studios”.

(that’s not the real name of it.  in fact Byron hasn’t chosen a name yet.  so, till then, i’m going with “Sneaky B.”  because Byron is the owner of Sneaky Beans coffee house.  you see what i did there?) 🙂

the guys were laying down some tracks for their upcoming record and AJC had liked the shots i’d done of The Bacherlorettes when they were recording and wondered if i’d do the same for them?

and since you’re reading this post, you’ve probably already figured out my answer.

also, The Envelope Pushers will be performing July 30th up at Sneaky Beans!  show starts at 7pm and only $5 at the door!  make sure you check it out.  the boys put on a great live show!

ok, let’s get to it!



[The Bedroom Series] Courtney and Rion (2007)

Posted in black and white, Film, Photo Post, The Bedroom Series by William Patrick Butler on July 7, 2010

this is a series i’ve been wanting to post for a long long time (since 2007 to be exact) but i never really could figure out a good place to post them to and i wanted to be sure i had Courtney’s permission to post them since some of the shots could be considered, hmm, i guess a litte risqué?

but here we go, The Bedroom Series

i actually want to do more Bedroom Series in the future.  in fact, that was always the plan.  i just haven’t found the time (or models) to shoot yet.  but keep your eyes peeled.

i shot this entire series in black/white film, with my Canon AE-1 Program camera, with a 50mm prime lens.  since it was at night, and the only light source we had were one or two lights, i was shooting wide open at f/1.8.

ahh, Miles Davis “Blue in Green” from his album Kind of Blue just came up on my youtube shuffle.  perfect music to post to.
