It’s always fun to set the shutter really fast to freeze water or to slow the shutter down to give it the nice fluid motion feel.
Here I decided to slow it down quite a bit to try and show the power of the flowing water while the kayaker surfed the swell on this river rapid. I’m pleased with the calm and contrasting energy that this captured.
We love thinking outside of the box when working with our clients. If you have a project in mind we would love to be your go to team.

“If we are to have broad-thinking men and women of high mentality, of good physique and with a true perspective on life, we must allow our populace a communion with nature in areas of more or less wilderness condition.”
– Arthur Carhart
If you’re game for “communing with nature” and need a photographer along don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. We love shooting in playgrounds like the Snake river above.
“I’ll tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than any one thing in the world. I rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a bike. It gives her a feeling of self-reliance and independence the moment she takes her seat; and away she goes, the picture of untrammeled womanhood.”
-Susan B. Anthony
On July 26th, 89 rad women headed out of Austin, Texas to ride the Rapha Womens 100k together. It was smiles for miles. Even the Texas heat couldn’t slow these women down. I feel blessed to have been able to capture their journey and see the strength in numbers.
Here at Austin Vivid Photography we love creating sessions that are uniquely you.
Wether you’re into yoga, working out, or anything in between we can come up with a session that not only meets your needs but is fun at the same time.
I wanted to share this photograph, not because it’s a good photo (in fact there are a handful of things I could have done to improve it) but because it reminds me of a time and place where I captured it. It reminds me of being in the cramped back of a hotel in Jackson Hole while hanging with an amazing North Face photographer, Lucas Gilman, an inspirational photo editor for the National Geographic, Sadie Quarrier and a bunch of rad photographers that became friends. We were all going on way too little sleep, working our butts off and loving every minute of it.
Man, I love my job! Here’s a preview of a session that I did and as usual I left feeling personally richer and more inspired.
I just love being around truly great people and I feel very fortunate that I get to work with so many.
Thank you to all my past, present and future clients!

Taking sunset silhouette photos is fun and easy. If you use these few tips I think you’ll agree.
First you need a subject that is obvious in shape. This photo was taken at a session I was doing for this awesome yoga instructor and I couldn’t resist as the light was getting just right. City skylines tend to work pretty well in this scenario and I’m sure you can think of a handful of other subjects that would do too. If I was doing a family portrait session I wouldn’t go for this shot because it would then just look like a big black blob with heads poking out.
Next, the great thing about these shots is you only need to expose for your sunset. Once you nail your setting for the beautiful sunset those rich blacks just happen on your subject. With that being said, just make sure you are shooting in the direction of the sun. And your subject will be between you and the sun.
So let’s get our setting for that rich sunset. There’s a handful of ways to get this but what I find as an easy fool proof way of doing this is to knock my exposure compensation down a bit. That’s the button that usually has a “+/-” on it. I typically end up going down a full -1 or even more. For this image I lowered my aperture to f/11 which also darkened the image by letting less light in.
I will say I ended up adding a magenta filter on for this shot because I liked those hues for this client. The only difference that made was in the upper left corner where you have the nice magenta toning it was more of a light blue. It looked good that way too but I thought this fit better for her. The filter definitely wasn’t necessary.
So all and all pretty easy, right? Way easier than having to add some fill light back on our subject.
I had the privilege of doing a photo shoot for Mama Fu’s Asian House. I say privilege because the talent I worked with was amazing. How often do you get to work with a group of people that make you forget you’re working because it’s so much fun?
We worked on a series of images that I will showcase more of later. Stay tuned.
