Eventful Weekend with Rhythm Natives in SF

My bro and his bro­hams, the Rhythm Natives, went to vis­it the Bay Area this past week­end. They were part of Bam­bu’s Smug­glers Tour in SF. I had the oppor­tu­ni­ty in tak­ing some pho­tos from both their shows: Fri­day, May 20th at 111 Min­na Gallery; and Sat­ur­day, May 21st at Rock­it Room.

Luck­i­ly, we sur­vived The Rap­ture or I wouldn’t have been able to get these post­ed. =)

Is It The Camera?

Well, is it? A cou­ple of months old in terms of the video/documentary in this post, but its still rel­e­vant. Prob­a­bly as rel­e­vant years ago when there were a lot of cam­eras to pick from. Any­ways… Lee Mor­ris of Fstoppers.com shoots a full fash­ion pho­tog­ra­phy ses­sion with the iPhone 3Gs.

Here’s the video.
