Sing!

Happy Monday! Here is a throwback picture from my trip to the Music City last year, Nashville, Tennessee. What I love most about Nashville, Tennessee is the Americana vibe that it carries! I love using HDR and the HDR effect on almost everything I shoot in Nashville! Nashville has some really cool rustic things to shoot that are perfect for those HDR images. Places like Marathon Motor Works or the Parthenon are awesome locations for photographers to test out their creativity when it comes to HDR photography. This photo made me think of this bible verse, Ephesians 5:19. I love to worship to all the music on The Message, I think its FM Channel 63. My favorite is For King and Country, Britt Nicole, NewsBoys, Ryan Stevenson,Toby Mac, and Mercy Me. Who is your favorite Christian Artist to Worship with?

Nashville Photography! Americana Inspired!

I have been to Nashville very summer for the past 3 years. These photos are some of many of my favorite HDR images. I also got the chance to shoot with 14 time Grammy Award Winning Country/Bluegrass singer Ricky Skaggs who so unbelievably talented. I shot a portrait of him too!

I had the opportunity to photograph Ricky Skaggs, a 14 time Grammy award winning artist! Skaggs is called the father of bluegrass music because of how talented Ricky is and he really brought back the bluegrass style of music. Ricky started playing the mandolin at the age of 5 and by the time he was 6 years old he was onstage performing with Bill Monroe singing and playing the mandolin. Skaggs has had so many hit songs and performs with his band, Kentucky Thunder all across America and all over the world. He currently has a new album out with his wife, Sharon White titled “Hearts Like Ours.”

It was a true blessing to not only photograph such a talented musician, but to get to know Mr. Skaggs and talk with him. Ricky Skaggs is also a very talented photographer and when he is on tour he brings his camera with him. I photographed Ricky Skaggs holding his guitar in Nashville, Tennessee.

Nashville is such a magical musical city! I could have spent a whole another week photographing just the city alone. Here is my favorite shot from my trip, the whole city lit up at night! Photographed from the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge at sunset.
