New Orleans!

January 25, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
So if you didn't know, I was able to go to Imaging USA this year. I'm sure right know you are wondering just what that is and why it's a big deal. Well it's a huge photography convention held by Professional Photographers of America. (PPA for short, which I am now a member of. Yay! :-] ) It's three days of workshops, photography exhibit and en expo of cool new gadgets and everything relating to photography.
I had a heck of a time getting there and back being that I drove later in the evening and didn't arrive there or back home until one in the morning. So special thanks to those who talked to me on the phone on my way there and back to help me stay awake!
The workshops were fantastic! I fell in love with some of the photographers there that taught the workshops and it was such a motivational and educational experience. So I've had someone ask "Didn't you go to school for photography? What could they teach you there that your schooling didn't?" Well the school program that I was in focused mainly on fine art photography instead of commercial (portraits, weddings, babies, etc.) So these workshops were more about the business of photography. Also some were geared more to the specifics of your cameras. (Canon or Nikon being the two biggest) There weren't really classes at school that focused on that because too many people shoot one or the other and to get a class with just one or the other is probably not an easy task.
Anyways! To sum it up: I had a blast, learned a lot and can't wait to get back to photographing and using what I learned!
A super special thanks to Macon (Nathan's friend) who invited us to the convention and gave us a free pass to get in!
Here's a picture of the dome I passed arriving into New Orleans :) Forgive my reflection of my cd player in the windshield.
