DJ Waajeed

My internship with Jenesis Magazine has taken me to some interesting and "hip" places and events that I am really starting to enjoy.  One of the places has been the Shadow Lounge in Shadyside where there are frequent appearances by DJ's.  One of the most recent ones had been a benefit "spin" for a fallen DJ, DJ Dilla.   The magazine was writing a story about a well known DJ from Detroit named DJ Waajeed.  

These guys to some crazy things with records and different music that blows the mind.  What also blows my mind is how they can keep track of all that is going on with the recods and their computers all at the same time...but thats why they are the DJ's and I am the photographer.  

All photos were taken at Shadow Lounge and were shot with 15mm Fisheye and 580exII

Strobin Around the Room

Well with my recent antenna modification of my eBay triggers, (which by the way work great now) I've been practicing a few lighting techniques around my room.  

All of these shots were taken with a single bare 580EX II, with Cactus V2 triggers, and a 15mm fisheye.  

Nothing too spectacular, just a little practice!
