8.14.10 Baka Breaks

This was a jam thrown by a promoter called Baka Entertainment in Lawrenceville, FL. It was a small 18-up event at a bar, with 1-on-1, 2-on-2, and 5-on-5 battles. To my suprise, the turnout was better than I thought, and some bboys we know from Indiana ended up coming down.

Despite the holdups and problems during the night, and the poor DJing, the event was fun and all I knew had a good time. I didn't plan on it, but ended up shooting, and it was fun too. The light enticed me, and I "unsigned up" myself from the 1-on-1 so I could focus on shooting.

Actually, I just got myself another point-and-shoot (my old old one died), so I've been shooting video as well!

When it comes to capturing an event, I don't always see myself as an event photographer, but as an artist trying to capture mood, or my mind's picture of a situation. Also, I like to play with styles and techniques to keep shooting bboys fresh for me. The one I used that night I really have fun with; it's called dragging the flash.

All that being said, the video is a mood-collage of the event, as are the photos.

Soo, please enjoy the (quickly cut, not-refined) video and snapshots!
