Las Vegas & Lights

I am out in Las Vegas at PMA08. I drove out this morning from LA and will be heading back tomorrow. On my trip out I listened to Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life by Steve Martin. The book was excellent especially since it was read by Steve Martin himself. He has starred in two of my favorite films, The Jerk, and Planes, Train, and Automobiles and happens to be one of my favorite actors. I would love to meet him one day.

After dinner and the season premiere of Lost I went out with my Canon 40D and my 85mm f/1.2L II lens and purposely took photographs totally out of focus. The reason I wanted to take photos that weren't in focus is because this lens has a circular aperture so you get a really cool effect when photographing lights, which Las Vegas is full of. Here is one of my favorite images from tonight.

Jon & Alison - 1/5/2008

I just want to thank Jon & Alison for being patient with me while I was sick all last week. Normally I have some sample images from a wedding posted on my blog within days after the event. Thanks guys, you are the best!

This has not been a fun week

This week has not been one bit fun. I must have picked up a bug or something when I was in Ohio. Monday I wasn't feeling 100% but by Tuesday I was miserable. I think I am finally starting to get better. Hopefully I will sleep through the night tonight. My wife, Victoria, has been amazing in taking care of me. Hopefully I can start working on my to-do list within the next couple of days. Stay tuned in the coming days for more pictures from last weekend's wedding.

One from this weekend

I am finally home after a fun and exhausting weekend. After landing on time last night we had to wait nearly an hour until we could get to our gate. Here is one image from this past weekend's wedding to whet your taste buds. More images and comments to come in the coming days.
