I thought I've shot in some small space before, but this one is the winner. Notice how nice and neat I stacked the chairs around the room. I ended up shooting through the open door. Really into the double back-light these days. I did get to meet Godfrey Cheshire film critic and director.

I'd gotten a stock request from my Raleighstockphotography site. Looking for some shots of Memorial Auditorium, they were happy with the ones on the site, but I knew I could do better. It a tough building to shoot, never gets any front sun. The "magic moment " this time of year is @ 6:45 AM. I'm happy with these shots.

Shot from the Speedway series going out for direct mail 2000 pieces going out with the help of Adbase. I've tried a lot of of printing places and find Vista Print works well for my needs. I always search for coupons on the web, and take advantage of the 10 min. offer after I place my order.
Just a follow up post to the U2 concert. What dose this have to do with photography ........ read on. I guess we were some of the lucky ones that made it into the show, I've heard on the news some people didn't make it in due to the traffic. The corporate box rocked. I've been a Nikon shooter all my life, no way to get the D3 into the show so I took the cool pix. I was really disappointed by the amount of noise and quality of the images even in manual mode. The auto-focus was very buggy in low light. Think I'm going to get a Cannon G10.

Kind of a non-day at the studio, gearing up for the U2 concert. Get to hang and see how the other half lives. I've seen 3 shows at Carter Finley, The Who's 3rd farewell tour, The Rolling Stones 4th farewell tour and Pink Floyd. My seats have always been as far from the stage as possible. Not this time .....Stocking up for the show in a corporate box. Lots of Beer and booze and catered food. I felt like such an elitist, perched in the box. It should be a good time and a good show. I miss the days of hiding airplane bottles in my socks and hanging out with the common crowd.
