This is what three locations in three hours looks like - Uber trunk is full, backseat packed with Tristan Nash double fisting some C300s, me and an large equipment case on my lap, and not even enough room to frame a proper picture ha ha... fun first day of shooting for Double7 Images and 4A's / American Association of Advertising Agencies - got some great footage!

NERD TALK: these were all shot with a Canon 7D & 16-35mm @ f5.6 with the "Neutral" picture style setting. RAW processing was done in Adobe Lightroom while a custom B&W conversion & finishing was done in Nik Collection Silver Efex Pro 2.
Got a call that Chris Cresswell from the Flatliners was playing an intimate acoustic set at Holdfast Records in Asbury Park as part of Panic State Records 5th Anniversary.
