Driving on City Sidewalks

December 21, 20075

A good friend of mine here in Sarnia, Barry Mielke, has been working relentlessly the past few months to put together an EP to be released in France with Red Plane Records. (the site is in French, so that is the translated link)

He then got my other friend, Darryl Silvestri, one of the guys who wrote me a song for my wedding to play some guitar and add vocals to his tracks. The result? One amazing CD that sounds a lot like the styles of Appleseed Cast, Explosions in the Sky and Mineral. The band name is Driving on City Sidewalks, and we’ll be releasing the CD in Canada sometime in the new year if your interested.

All that to say. I took them on a 20 minute, involuntary, forced photo shoot today and here is what I came up with.

    I don’t like band photos, but I like the second one and the last one.

    Nathan, what are you shooting with? And how much did you Photoshop these?

    I just got my new camera, a canon xti
    i never touched them in photoshop, all the colour is done in adobe lightroom (which has a lot of photoshop features) but most of them are just basic colour changes or touch ups in the curves a bit. But they don’t come out of the camera like that, its a bit of playing around to get what your looking for with it.

    That’s what I assumed. I just bought an XTI too. I’m just getting used to it. I’ve worked in Photoshop forever but havent’ touched lightroom yet.
