the big apple


Yesterday I took an education day to attend an all day seminar at the Javitt's Center in New York for a class on Adobe Lightroom with some of my CT Wedding Photographer buds! We all learned so much and are excited to improve our post-production and workflow, which will really benefit you, the client! It was an all-out nerd fest, for sure- so we all totally felt right at home! Of course there was a cacophony of cameras, minus mine. I was taking a break...but wished I hadn't when we got out of dinner and saw the sun setting down the street form Carmine's where we ate and had my most photogenic of friends with me, PAUL!! Not to mention Martin, my old college buddy who I love shooting as well! We decided to go to Times Square and be total tourists- went right smack in the middle and got some fun group fish eye shots! It was non-stop shooting, almost like a mini-seminar- people were sharing cameras- I actually was shooting with a Canon, and could barely figure out how to use it! I love my Nikon!! I just know mine so well, no dig intended...;) We then wrapped up our relaxing train ride by posing in the New Haven train station at almost midnight. We were almost out of the tunnel and I just had to see what it would look like through Richard Esposito's fish eye lens, practically assaulted the poor guy getting it off his neck and flipped out! It is an amazing shot!! What a nice end to a totally outrageous and fun day with some of my most favorite people!! Thank you REphotodesign.com for letting me snag your picture to share!

So jealous - I want to be a Lightroom dork as well (the WPPI session on it rocked). As of Friday I'll be free to hang :)
