Photographs from the CALL IT STREET ART, CALL IT FINE ART, CALL IT WHAT YOU KNOW opening night

Work by Daniel Anguilu

I love art exhibit openings and the more informal the better. In the big shows, photography is usually frowned upon but at the smaller shows you can enjoy documenting the event while appreciating other people’s work in different mediums. Murals are especially interesting to me because they tend to be colorful and even though I am photographing someone else’s hard work, I love how the colors pop out. The best part however is meeting new people and especially chit chatting with the artists or even running into fellow photographers 🙂

All of these pictures were taken handheld and many of them using available light since it was pretty crowded and I didn’t want to plop down a tripod or bother people. Fortunately I could just bump up the ISO and nobody besides me would care about the slight increase in noise. For some of the shots, I did bounce the flash a little to get rid of harsh shadows.

This work was across the street from the museum.

Interesting work by Skeez181. He had two beautiful models dressed like the characters in the mural and it definitely added intrigue to the work.
