It has been a pretty crazy last few days here in WPPI land in Vegas. The trade show is almost over, and Bryan and I are heading back to Ontario tomorrow night on the red-eye. But before we do I thought I would share some of the images I've been getting in the past 24 hours. I say 24 hours because we were able to rent a car and drive out to the desert and witness a brilliant sunrise. A truly magnificent experience which I wasn't about to miss.
Enjoy the images and if you have something to say, post it to the comments section. I'd love to know what everyone thinks.
This is Jen, I met her exactly yesterday. She is one of Krista's friends. This image was taking while we were riding the escalator. I held out my hand off camera left and bounced the flash off my hand (I didn't have a reflector! So I improvised!) and this is what we got.
Ahhh...good ol' Beth. This image, was actually taken in the van on the way out to the red rock canyons. There was some great light coming in behind her, so we worked with it.
A quick Bryan the magnificent shot. From the hip.
Krista and Jen. Looking lovely as usual.
Another on the go van shot.
There are some pretty intense discussions at these trade shows. Just look at the concentration between these two.
Bryan was also doing a little off camera hand flash inside, and this lovely gentleman next to him came over and asked him what he was doing. (I think he thought we were a little nuts bouncing flash off our hands). Bryan showed him the image, and the gentleman scoffed and said, 'That doesn't look very good.' rather rudely. Bryan was, as you can see, shocked! All I know is in this picture, there is only one person I would trust to be a judge of any picture. Can you guess which one I would pick?
Me attempting a behind the back, over the shoulder bounce flash off the reverse wall, ceiling, other wall combo. Nothing but net.
When I took this picture, Krista said that we were "funny boys" cause we take so many pictures. So honestly, tell me, what would you think if this is what you saw when the elevator doors opened?
Bryan is so fast he can bend light with his mind!
Our new and now good friend Sandra. Wow...I take a lot of pictures on escalators. And no one is allowed to mention that I fell off one either! Oh, wait...oh.....I just did...
Sometimes we need to celebrate if we get a good shot.
Strike that pose!
Fun fun fun.
I told Bryan and Beth to pretend they were famous and I was the paparazzi.
And then they did this...cracked me right up!
Bryan was loving this little stretch of sidewalk!
I thought security was going to escort us out of there. Turns out he was offering to take a picture of everyone to help us. How thoughtful!
This guy! I have no idea what happened here, and I'm not sure Bryan did either. He just ran up, said something to Krista and ran away. Strange indeed.
Some girls on their way out to the clubs.
This was not the view from our room. We didn't have a view. But this one is nice.
We went out to the desert for some shooting fun. Bryan was determined to get the "action cycling shot", which he did end up nailing!
Jen, about to embark on her adventure. Ahhh the adventure we had. Adventure is always a great way to get to know someone.
Does anyone else think it's weird that there was a shovel in the middle of nowhere?
Click click click...
Click click click!
Back inside for some David Jay seminar action! Can you feel the excitement?
And some night shots.
And now, it's time for bed. Gnight yall!
