Neon Graveyard Las Vegas

Well I know several of you heard me talking about getting to go to the Neon graveyard while I was in Vegas this year. I can’t even tell you all what an awesome experience it was. Not only did I get to meet some friends that until that day I had only talked to via Facebook and the forums, but I got to shoot in one totally cool place. I totally wish we has something like this to go play in around here. If anyone knows of such a place let me know please.
The day before the shoot it was rainy and cold and a few of us were worried about it being canceled. I had a lens break Monday and wasn’t as hyped about doing the shoot after that but once I got out there and we got started I was so stoked. I used the broken lens as an opportunity to use my non zoom lenses and force myself to work different and get out of my normal rut. I have to say we got to work with some extraordinary models. I don’t anyone could have taken a bad image in that place and with the models we had.
There will be more images and stories from Vegas over the next few day/weeks. I have a few new things coming up that I want to try so it may take me awhile. So I hope these cool images old you over.
Also, for those of you that are avid readers of my blog there will be a nice change in the next week or so. So, if you are a subscriber or have me bookmarked in google reader or something along those lines you will have to rebookmark me or resubscribe soon. So keep an eye out for the new changes. The blog is what I’m hoping will be just one of a few new things here… but I don’t want to tell you everything now. Won’t have anything to talk about later.
