Imaging USA recap

Uncategorized

I got back from beautiful and sunny 70 degree Tampa last week. I was glad to come back home after being away for three weeks though I have to admit that I wanted to get right back on that plane once I saw San Francisco and it’s cold, rainy mess. I was in Florida for Imaging USA, one of the industry’s biggest conventions. It was an absolute blast (except for the 7am seminars! Bleh!). As promised, I worked on my picture-a-day commitment while I was there.

I roomed with Julie of Julie Cheshire Photography and made friends with another photographer, Jennifer Witz, who photographs portraits in the Bellevue, WA area. Being that the convention was in Tampa, the theme was pirates and we certainly took advantage of it. We met up with a great Jack Sparrow look-alike and got some fun pictures the night of the welcome party. (I’ll refrain from showing the one with Julie – she’d kill me.)

I was overwhelmed with the expo. It was filled to the brim with new and fun stuff. I did such a good job by just browsing but I finally gave in during the last 30 minutes of the expo and bought a 4GB card and a brand new Wacom tablet, something I’ve been eyeing for a while now.

There was a final party the last night of the convention. I couldn’t resist from snapping a few shots while I was there. This is Jennifer again. She is just freaking hilarious. We’ve got to get together for some photo field trips.

It was held at the Tampa aquarium which was a really impressive aquarium. Is it just me or are jellyfish the most photogenic things in the world?

I’ve come back with so many ideas that I hardly know where to start! Keep on the look out for a few changes and new products coming your way from Lindsay Docherty Photography!

Photography 101: Group Pictures
I just came across a fabulous idea for taking group pictures. I'm so stealing this for my next wedding:You want a photo of everyone together, or a photo of Grandma and Grandpa with all the grandchildren, or any other posed group–but you want everyone looking cute, not tortured. EVERYONE who’s going to be in the photo should come over and stand by the camera. Anyone not able to move comfortably can stay in the pose position, but everyone else should be at the camera. On a timer, press the button, and now EVERYONE run to get into position before the 10 seconds is up. This results in rosy-cheeked, happy-looking groups, though the group gets mo ...
