So came here today to deliver the metal prints I made for Aaron Franklin and John Lewis. I just gave Aaron and Benji the print, and Aaron got really excited! He thought it was cool it was printed on metal too.

Showed him how it needed adequate lighting to pop. He said I'm going to put it right there under the air condition (left of the entrance). I didn't know if it would make it in the restaurant so it's pretty cool! His reaction was priceless!

After I grub, he's going to take me back to get shots of the pits with food on them! :D

    Fantastic looking print!
  • That print is outstanding!  Can't quite tell how big it is from the photo - what are the rough dimensions @cazzy?

    @cazzy - Is that a composite of sort,HDR, or painting?  Excuse my ignorance to the location and placement. 

    That is cool that he enjoyed his gift and actually hung it on the wall.  I would love to expierence his Q sometime. 
    Thanks,

    It's a HDR shot. Used the bracket feature on my Nikon and merged the images together in post.

    Awesome!  Do you at least get some free grub???


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • Nice photo/print/art. That looks freakin awesome. And for it to be at such a popular spot. That's like WoW!!!!!!!! Congrats and good job!!!!!!
  • Way to Go Cazzy, Nice pic. Recently watched Franklin videos, that place must HUM. Post some pics of his pits and let us know how the tour was.

    I honestly told myself that I would not let them buy me lunch. Sure enough the guy at the register told me "Aaron would like to buy your lunch today". I insisted to pay twice but they wouldn't let me, so I gave them a good tip.

    Been here twice and haven't paid yet...kinda feels a lil wrong. Haha

    Good deal and congrats again!   Couple years ago I was an HDR nut, still do quiet a bit.  Always good to push the DR of those cameras to the max to pull those shadows and highlights. 

    Thanks,

    Sir I dont know any thing at all about art, but I have to say that is very, very impressive. Wish I had that kind of talent. Again that looks great.

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    Oh...nah. lol

    Totally not into photography to make coin so it never crossed my mind. I just thought Aaron might like the shot and the possibility of him hanging it up is cool enough.

    Benji said he'd let me know if anyone wants to buy it. I've actually sold one already so who knows if some Franklin Maniacs might want one.

    Aaron told me he was thinking in the back about how he would secure it so it doesn't walk. Something about cutting a whole and flush mounting it.
