Just an FYI regarding Red Flag 14-2...

If anyone is seriously considering going to Vegas, be aware that NASCAR is in town during that first week. I wouldn't consider going to Vegas until after 3/9 which is race day at LVMS.


Hahahahahahaha..... Yeah.... So my friend is coming from the UK and we are doing a road trip to Vegas. Due to various time constraints, we will be in Vegas from the 6th to the 9th. And guess which is the most expensive week in the entire year to be in Vegas?!

Had no idea Red Flag would be on.... Hmmmmmmm!

Ouch...

Well, you might get away with Speedway spotting on the first Monday and Tuesday of RF, but don't even think about going anywhere but Cheyenne on Wed and Thurs. Come Friday, don't bother going anywhere near the north end until after Sunday. The Speedway location won't be available at all and Nellis Blvd is the #1 alternate route to/from the race track.

Good Luck...

To be honest I don't think my husband or my friend would be too impressed if I wandered off to hunt jets... but you do make a good point about avoiding that whole area. I guess we will confine our touristy activities to the south!

Vegas or anywhere south and west is sounding pretty good right now! We just got another 4-5 inches of the white stuff and the "children" had another free day, I'm thinking they will be done with make up days this year about the second week of July! Having a real winter in IA this year.

But as you can see in the attached pictures (couple quick edits, nothing special), make up days are the farthest thing from their mind at the moment.

Just finished putting the final touches on the images from today. Just another average day here at Pix R Us, a 20 hour marathon to get a project shot and tweaked for a long time client with a crazy deadline.

I began testing out a new system late this afternoon, the CamRanger. I did some research on it while I was in Florida and decided to give it a try. Of course, Eugene at Competitive had it in stock, so I headed straight from DFW to the store and he fixed me up. Pretty cool system. I was shooting a master bath and decided to add a little light in a few spots. The CamRanger allowed me to see exactly what the light was doing without walking through the house to get back to my camera's preview screen. I triggered the D800 and the 1DX from my iPad on several compositions and saved a lot of walking back and forth. Seeing the image on the retina screen is much more comforting when compared to the camera preview screen too. Not much of an investment for all the potential. The wi-fi system is so stout, when I went to dinner I forgot to turn it off and my iPad was locked into it on the table in Pei-Wei, a couple hundred feet from my car where the unit sat.

Wake up call at six bells for a dawn shoot, lights out.

One from the "Why Didn't I Think Of This Sooner" file...

Rats, I cut off the nose...


Aaaaaaaahhhhhh, I Over Corrected!


Why not toss both halves into the Panorama function in CS6 CC?

Well, with a merge, a little canvas expansion, some sky filling and a re-crop:

Thanks Jay! There are 8 lights involved in that image, plus the ones in the room. The agency who commissioned me is a 30 year client, the builder is a brand new one. Somewhat vindicating that they specified me for the shoot because the previous photographer does the Thomas Kinkaid technique and they can't stand it.

Magic happens!

I know the seam has to be forward of the starboard position light, but I can't see it. At all. Totally convincing, Jay: well done, indeed.

Thanks Zim...

I failed to notice exactly where CS6 performed the splice. I'll have to go back and re-merge to see how it did it. I know it needed a wee bit of warp as well because I couldn't get manual layers to line up anywhere near as cleanly as the Pano function did it...
