v1042Jones-0011

I have finally got through the third band that played at the Everett Music Hall. Because of white balance I couldn’t use the infrared B&W plug-in on these ones. So, I use the Rich & Creamy B&W preset from Kevin Kubota.

Small Town Habit @ the Hofbrau

V1028Jones-0003

I have taken thousands of photos since moving to San Antonio a year ago, but the only live music I shot was at SXSW. It has been eating at me for a while. I have made many excuses for why I haven’t. It is too hard to get into aRead More…

Stacy Jones Band @ The Wild Hare

V1025Jones-0005

The Stacy Jones Band plays at the Wild Hare a few times a year. What is great about this venue is that many of my family members make it out to the bar because of its location. On this particular night my cousin Rodney ended up being at the bar.Read More…

Stacy Jones Band @ Sound Harley Davidson

V1024Jones-0014

My Vintage 1920′s Film Lightroom Preset

Jones-0010

I have been creating some presets in Lightroom. This is a preset I made from a 1927 picture of London. I made a video of how to make this preset for yourself on YouTube. There is a link to a video below these sample images.

Recently I had a senior shoot with a boy with a totally cool car. But it just looked blah and the sky was totally washed out. I knew I could make it look awesome, but I don’t have Photoshop. I found your video and it absolutely helped me transform this picture. I wish I could show you the before and after. He and his family loved it. Thank you again!!
