It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the ordinary.

Its been a long time...

It's been a long time (long time) I shouldn'a left you (left you) Without a dope beat to step to (step to)...

Lol. ok. Enough with the random rap lyrics. I'm updating my website after how many months? I think the end of StarPerceptions is coming. I have plans on buying a new domain name to showcase my photos and random blogs about the miscellaneous Jazz events I go attend. I'm not sure, as I am not a writer, But my new website should be a fun project.

I haven't had my camera out in a while, and its time for me to get out there and take some photos. My friend Dezron has invited me to come see him perform at Dizzy's with Derrick Gardner & The Jazz Prophets and I shall be there. The gig is August 15. I'm excited because there's a trumpet player. Lol, I've come to realize there are not as many musicians play trumpet as those that play sax. I always love to go and watch fellow trumpet players who are much better than I perform.

Last week I went to go see Terrance Blanchard at Birdland. He's one of my favorite trumpet player and has scored many movies I love ( including my favorite, Bamboozled ). I've looked forward to this performance since last year. It was a great set, although it was my first time seeing someone alter the sound of the horn during a live performance. I asked him what trumpet he played with because his trumpet looked like a horn I was interested in, the flumpet. His horn was made by the same company that does the flumpet: Monette. I'm not a fan of gold horns, but his was nice.  I still prefer silver hardware. Gold just looks gaudy to me.

Anyways, I didn't have time to stop home and get my camera when I went to go see Mr. Blanchard. I am still kicking myself in the behind for that. When i go see Dezron, I am going to bring my camera. It's been too long since I've taken photos and I've missed out on pretty of good opportunities... Hopefully Dizzy's has good light. Its really hit or miss when it comes to Jazz venues and lighting. But fortunately i have several fast lenses. I'll make it work.

Anyways, this is just an update. One of these days I am going to post new pictures, and I will keep you updated when I do. :-)

 

**Update** so I brought a new domain name, www.iiviphotos.com will be my next site. The name comes from the ii V I jazz progression, since this site will be dedicated to pictures I take at different venues. I'm excited to be working on this. Right now there is just a holder page, but I will start working on the site soon.
