O this is just too much fun. For the first time in the many years that my folks have been trying to get me to go to Photoshop World, I’m finally here. Now they kept telling me it was going to be a different experience but i had no idea until i got here. The first thing big noticeable thing was everyone saying hello. It was easy, Dad had me by one hand introducing to everyone, here’s Jake. It was funny and exciting at the same time. Then there are the Precons, different shooting venues where you spend a day a learning about that particular area of photography. I went to the Real World Concert Photography mostly cuz i had never done it before! O and Scott Diussa is a good friend and was co instructing it with Allan Hess. Knew absolutely nothing about it.
It was completely different then any other subject i have photographed before. Between the settings, the composition and the general atmosphere of the other photographers. I’m used to waiting and watching the subject learning it’s habits over time, that’s just necessary in wildlife. Or even the quickness of aviation knowing the planes are coming around the pylons. But this! O know it’s all about moving around, getting the shot, the unpredictable nature of the players and the every changing light. It was intense, but a lot of fun. Only been here a day and I’m already learning.
