Portraits of Austin Bloggers from the July 2010 Austin Bleetup

2010 July 28

Last week, the RoA team headed over to Trio for the July 2010 Austin Bleetup (that’s ‘blogger meetup’ for you non-boggy types). While there, we had a great time hobnobbing with some of our favorite local bloggers at sunset out on the lawn behind the Four Seasons. It was my first time back there, and I have to say that it was really nice. Wish I’d manned up and kicked some of the lazies out of the ginormous hammocks, but alas, I decided to just let sleeping dogs, um, swing?

Not sure if it was the wine, the sun, the rain or the twittery giddiness of bloggers in general, but Cory Ryan’s photobooth got a little crazy. Case in point: A photoshoot with me and Tolly. She was wearing a blonde Fabio wig and she’d strapped me into a coconut bra. See what I mean? [You can see all the craziness of Cory's photobooth here.]

The portraits I took, on the other hand, were a little more subdued. Straying away from my usual overhead-angled “Dutch Shot,” they’re all close-up, direct portraits. Hope you like :) [See the full set of photos of Austin Bloggers on our flickr page.]

BTW, this is by no means everyone we loved at the event-just the ones we got to shoot before the batteries ran out.

Much love to Tolly over at Austin Eavesdropper for organizing the whole thing!
