Art Houston is a coordinated series of gallery openings and open houses right when the weather in Houston is most oppressive, mid July. This year was a bit cooler because of a full week of rain. These images represent my first efforts with Nikon’s fabulous 36 MP D800. This high resolution camera produces stunning results when everything is done right, and miserable results when it is not. I shot these in and around various galleries, although Lawndale Art Center’s huge crowd produced the lion’s share of informal portraits.
