I just got home from Terrabyte after a nice drive today; LA > Sacto > SF, needless to say I am exhausted so I’ll keep it short. Terrabyte was amazing as usual; thanks to everyone who came out and made it a success and thanks to the Arboretum and Kyle and Ryan from Subtractive for making it all happen. I also want to apologize for the delay getting started, as some of you noted, we had some technical difficulties starting out, but things smoothed out once things got rolling. I was pretty busy most of the time so didn’t get many good photos this time around, some of the few I got are below. Bijan has also posted some photos from the show here.
Steve workin’ it at the booth.
Zac Brown! (Guitars, Dusty Brown)
Somewhere in the middle of the central California valley.
I found some early videos from the show on YouTube, below is a shot of some of the visuals. I didn’t realize this girl (video below) had been dancing in the visuals until after the show was over, pretty cool to see this now. There is also a video of the new single being played; the audio is really bad and you can’t see much, but it’s a small taste at least: link. There are a couple more from the same person up here as well.

Cool, keen to check the stuff out. Really like the treatment on the last photograph by the way.
Psst. You spelt Epilogue incorrectly. I realize you were tired, I got your back.

Blasted!! I finally make the blog and it’s a pic of the back of my head. Oh well, next year! J/K man, great times this weekend.

if you have the energy and some time to spare, would you mind shortly tell us how you processed your pictures that are in this post?
NAVIS says:September 16, 2008 at 1:16 pm
Great to meet you finally Scott. The Arboretum was an awesome way to kick back a Sunday afternoon. Awesome tunes and atmosphere made for a kick ass outing. I think the thing that really tied the show together were all the peacocks running around everywhere. I’ve been trying to post pictures but it ain’t happenin’. Let’s see if this comment posts… if it does… I’ll try again with the pictures.

So I just made a page with the pictures on it since I can’t post comments with picture links on here:

Like H is saying, first thing in my mind – how did you process the pictures to get that 60/70ish feeling? If you have the time, please let us know.
NB. looks like a great venue.

Are you using a certain lens/filter or editing them(the pictures) after?
Bijan says:September 16, 2008 at 2:16 pm
Just wanted to say that this was a really great event and I had an excellent evening at such a beautiful place. I’m really glad that I decided to go(even though I had tons of design homework), you’re performance and Dusty Brown’s were amazing! The entire event with all of the beautiful plants, trees, and animals were a huge inspiration to me.
I also was able to pick up a few posters and your friend Steve was a really cool guy.
The only thing that I was a bit curious about was the “West Nile” warning the Arboretum had, did anyone else notice that?
Anyways great show Scott, hope to see some more of your sets in the future.

To Mads and H
He is shooting on digital, there is a post(http://blog.iso50.com/?cat=13) in which he explains the editing process in PS to give the lomo cross pross feel.
For me(I use Aperture) I change the temperature and adjust the level bars to my liking and it usually looks pretty authentic, really gives the photos a boost.

Thanks for this post Scott!! I was beginning to think I was sounding highly irritating after asking so much to see the stuff you do at shows :P
Jayden says:September 17, 2008 at 3:34 am
P.s. looking forward to the new single… sounds like there’s an intense bass hit at around the 30 second mark, much like when the bass drops in Adrift. Love it :D
Scott says:September 17, 2008 at 4:46 am
yeah, that poor camera’s mic got a bit overloaded. I assure you that the original recording doesn’t have such an overpowering bassline.
Scott says:September 17, 2008 at 4:50 am
H & Mads-
as andrew said, the post effects on those pics are mostly color balance (through all three ranges) and curves.
gwdesign says:September 17, 2008 at 12:26 pm
Those shots are great… I need more :)
You really captured the Terrabyte vibe, especially with the last shot. If any one image were to encapsulate the experience it would have to have a sun based lens flare :)
Dusty Brown says:September 17, 2008 at 12:46 pm
looks like you captured that fact that i wanted to go to sleep. love to photos.. perhaps post some more in your flickr account.
danny says:September 19, 2008 at 3:32 pm
woo! i made it into the first two pics (i’m the one in the light shirt and grey hat, with my GF in dark-blue). that was a fun night, with the peacocks running around, and beautiful scenery to enjoy while listening to the tunes. i wish the arboretum had events like that more often. anyway, good work scott. keep it up, and take care man. :)
Daniel says:September 21, 2008 at 9:11 pm
YEsss! I made it into the pics… im the only Mexican (as my friend described me) (im not at all mexican, i’m central american) anyhow im in the back wearing red which seems like im looking straight into the cam and once again in the second pic showing my Canon strap…. HEY SCOTT… I have a few pics that i took that evening if you need some to use at any time. Go ahead visit (my)space i will leave this comment again in urspace… Thanks… by the way those are excellent pics… ur skills are a great inspiration!

Thanks for linking to my you tube videos
My phone is really horrible quality, but I thought I’d treasure remembering this event.
