Are you kidding? Any chance to have that many people in one place that he can be drunk and mischeavous with.....

And if you think I'm joking about the possibilty of B.Ben attempting to light people's carvings on fire, then you don't know Ben. That will probably be the least crazy thing he does. And, if he's got any fireworks left over.....

News Bulletin #4!

Buzzy and I have been working (well, not really working more like goofing off and talking about working) on a show poster for the Carving Village. It turns out Ace hardware may sponsor us, so we have to make this look like it's more than a bunch of pals having a big parking lot party, which of course is exactly what it is.

So I got out my trusty but rusty fisheye lens camera, and you can vote on the picture you want on the poster - just PM me or shoot yer mouth off right here -

I think these came out not too bad....

Buzzy #1


Buzzy #2


Buzzy #3


Buzzy #4


Buzzy #5


Buzzy #6


Buzzy #7


Buzzy #8


And yeah, I'll be bringing the fisheye to the Oasis, so you folks will all look 100x crazier than normal!

Laytah

#5 is a good pic, but #8 has a more interesting look except you cant see Buzzys face. Re-shoot #8 with lighting so we can see his face. The silhouette look is cool, but I think we should see his face, otherwise I vote #5.

So hard to choose from all those great shots of Buzzy's nose hair, but I'm gonna have to go with #6.

Six is the best, but can't you re-shoot, using Zaya, or Kate w/boots???
That mug may scare people off...

The requirements were very stringent. I had to be sitting around with nothing to do in the middle of the day, in the middle of the week; have big pile of tikis and wood chips just laying around at my disposal; and have the ability to answer my phone when it rings.

I seem to have met all those requirements last Thursday.

Ugly Buzzy + Big nose + fish eye lens = a mug on a poster that will frighten people from this event.

I vote for #8.

Or, we all send in a tiki picture of something carved at a chop and we just make a collage. But I think we do not have time for that.

It's too bad I'm so ugly.
Buzzy Out!

"reshoot....or posterize/bitmap or duotone those bastards and see if that helps... "

Hey Clyde, get with it! Fisheye, or lomography, as the biggest thing in photography now! It's all about anti-digital, schemp, get with it before you get lost in the dust! (cough, cough)

Lomography pulls in like 1000% more light than a regular lens, forcing the film surface to either go deep black contrast or intense color. It's the hottest thing with extreme sports photogs, you can't get your hands on a waterproof fisheye these days, they're sold before they're made.

I'm doing a surfing ecommerce site right now that's gonna be 80% lomography, it looks KILLER. Posterizing is so 90's, mine the fisheye!

You're not ugly bro, you're my hero! (But I would avoid fish-eye lenses in the future, just a thought.)

hahaha....fisheye new....I did photography in the mountain bike industry in the late 90's and fisheyes were played out then. Great more xgames/skater/gnar gnar/grindage looking photos....

Who still shoots with film anyhow...even glamor shots in the mall has switched over!

Our Tiki Carving Village Special Guest this year is Richard Morgan Howell. He carves stuff like this

He learned to carve in the South Seas, during his full time work as a fisheries expert. Hes lived everywhere, carved with natives in Tonga, Fiji, Hawaii, you name it. He came to Babalu's Lemon Grove Chop, and let Clysdalle use a real adze for the first time. We got along with him right away.
