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!

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 ...

Personal Session in Chicago
I spent this past week in Chicago where I met with the lovely Shelley to take some pictures for her. She's a gorgeous redhead with definite model looks to her. We got some great shots in Lincoln Park by the zoo and conservatory.She's tall and thin and has such a friendly and natural air to her.She's very easy going.It took a few tries to get a serious face out of her (she just couldn't stop smiling) but she photographed well.And she had an easy smile that I'm sure wows those Chicago men.Thanks, Shelley; I had a great time!
