Old Las Vegas: Dazed and Confused Style

04.07.2010

“Old Downtown Las Vegas,” he said.

“Think Dazed and Confused,” he said.

“Think old vintage Corvette.”

These were the three ideas that surrounded the Las Vegas edition of the Photog Shootout. I had never been to old Vegas, and my usual associations with it are episodes of the original CSI: Crime Scene Investigators. Like, I was kind of worried that we might find a dead body in the alley or something. Well, TV makes it seem like it is a regular occurrence.

No dead bodies. Phew.

While I was in Las Vegas last month for WPPI, I had the chance to grab a couple of fun photos to mix things up. It was super cold! The windchill made it about 30-something degrees. And that’s not the temperature I typically think of when I think Vegas. Quite the opposite.

Our models were total troopers.

A Peek into WPPI 2010

03.23.2010

Sometimes, I should listen to my own advice.

Like seriously, be quiet, and listen to myself.

Before WPPI, I wrote down a list of tips for first-timers to WPPI. Well, I should have taken a gander at that list before I left because I forgot stuff. Like the battery to my point & shoot camera. Like the battery charger for my big camera. Oy vey.

Santa Claus really had something when he sings, “Making a list, checking it TWICE.”

Suffice to say, the following are my few photos I took during WPPI.

I had the opportunity to meet the lovely Grace Ormonde. As in the Grace Ormonde of Wedding Style Magazine. I was able to grab this quick photo during her presentation at the Tofurious Wedding Marketing Consultant booth.

So I almost didn’t get into this meeting. But I was determined. And I was also determined to chat a little more with Jasmine Star. So I went out on a limb, asked Jasmine about the meeting, and next thing I new, I was IN! As her guest! Wooo hooo!

The problem with forgetting the battery for my point & shoot camera is that I wasn’t able to take fun photos with all the friends I met up with. Because my arms are simply not long enough or strong enough for a self portrait with the big girl camera. So no fun shots with friends. Like at parties :(

Here’s a teaser of the Photog Shootout: Vegas Edition we did down in Old Las Vegas. The theme was “Dazed and Confused.” Stay tuned…
