Photography Convention in San Antonio, Texas

Uncategorized

The other week I ventured into Texas, no small undertaking, I assure you. I went to learn, become inspired, participate in shootouts, and meet new photographer friends. I am happy to report that I accomplished all of my goals and then some!

They were a fabulous few days surrounded by some of the best photographers in the world. I attended the intimate DWF Convention, a convention that piggy backs on the more massive Imaging USA every January. I checked out the enormous expo and picked up just a few goodies.

Here are just a few images from my time there…




It was pretty incredible to watch Jerry Ghionis do his thing.



Being the bonehead that I am, I didn’t bring nearly enough business cards so I had to make my own:


We had some photographer shootouts which were just a blast. The San Antonio Riverwalk has some fantastic locations for shooting and we certainly made the most of it.


Sometimes the hunters become the hunted…











It was just awesome. Thank you to DWF for putting on such a great event, for the speakers for imparting such wisdom, to the models for their grace and style. And, of course, a huge thank you to my fellow photographers for sharing knowledge and experiences, having impromptu photo sessions and late night heart to hearts, and knowing how to have a good time.

Can’t wait for next year’s convention in New Orleans!

Always walk through life as if you have something new to learn and you will.

The Magic of Photoshop
Everyone knows that models in advertisements and magazines have gone through hours of makeup, preparation, and photoshop to look as good as they do. But do you have any idea exactly how much change there really is? Dove (the soap brand) has come out with their Campaign for Real Beauty and feature a remarkable short film that shows the transformation from normal woman to billboard beauty with the aid of hairdressers, makeup artists, and photoshop whizzes. It's a smart and somewhat sad commentary on our distorted perception of beauty. What you see in magazines simply isn't real yet that is what we keep striving for. That's why we buy all o ...

Every month I feature new images for download for you to use as your desktop background. Click to download it and see it at its huge size and resolution.I guess this month's images could fall under the category of architecture. Most of these desktop images are from nature but these were some sights that I found to be beautiful for one reason or another. The first image comes from the courthouse in Media, PA. I was wandering around adorable downtown Media with a good friend on a beautiful sunny day with fantastic clouds. The courthouse seemed to be positively glowing. It may not be the Parthenon, but I liked it!The second image came from ...
