The Weekend Lens

I spent this past weekend in Vegas with many of the design team members and designers who create products for Designer Digitals. It was a chance for us to come together and share laughter and stories and meet in person.

As you can imagine there were many cameras on hand and lots of talk about ISO, aperture, macro, night-shooting, photoshop, etc. It was awesome to see Vegas through the lens of each person's camera.

Here's a look at some of the things I captured over the weekend:

On Friday night a big group of us embarked on a photo-walk. It was cool to just walk around the strip with the intent of seeing it through the lens of my camera.

For me there was lots of looking up.

One of the highlights for me was getting a chance to get to know Jessica Hunt. She lives here locally and we've just not had the chance in the past to make time to get together.

I'm pretty sure this weekend sealed a new friendship.

I arrived home last night safe and sound, excited to be back with my family again.

    Excellent photos. It was a very interesting perspective of Las Vegas which took into account more than just the money. Thanks for the experience.

    I love so many of these photos. They seem so crip and clear. Do you mind sharing what kind of camera you took these with? My digital pics still don't seem as good as my tried and true 35 mm camera, but maybe I am doing something wrong with digital.

    I live in Las Vegas and I absolutely love seeing photos that people take while they're here. Sometimes I forget all the cool potential of my own city.

    I wish I had known you would be here! I've lived here for over 10 years and it's always more fun when "newbies" are in town. ;)

    I used to think I was a pretty good photographer. Since becoming a blogger, I've realized there's just so much more I want to find out and....I'm not quite at the level I'd like to be at.
