A few pictures of the 2015 Houston Art Car Parade #artcarparade

I’ve been coming to the Houston Art Car Parade for a while now and since the format of the parade hasn’t really changed over the years, aside from moving it down a month to keep people from melting, my biggest fear as a photographer is that my pictures are becoming formulaic and redudant.
Here are some pictures from last year and the year before for instance.

My goal for this year was to mix it up a bit and try and get up close as the cars got ready and try to get different angles of the actual parade. It still looks kind of like previous years, but at least there are a few new vantage points!

Here are some lovely pirates

The overcast sky along with back lighting was a challenge so I just used my flash and underexposed the ambient light a bit.

It creates dramatic light without being too overboard

The “drone” look is in now so I got myself the old fashion drone- Heavy camera on a boom stick and remote shutter:

The camera on a stick was getting too heavy so I switched to street level
