I leave on Friday for a ten day trip to Death Valley. This is one of the most beautiful National Parks there is. It’s deceiving because you drive into it and you see just desert, but it has it’s surprises. Before I head out to Death Valley I’ll be stopping in Las Vegas, and picking up a friend from Australia and we are going shooting in the Neon Boneyard. This is a photographers paradise. This is where they all the old signs from the hotels and casinos in Vegas. It is rich in texture and color and just about anyplace you point the camera is a good shot. I will be shooting with my small GH2 camera and doing 5 exposure HDRs. I have shot medium format here before and just have some amazing shots. This time I have ideas of what I want to do with the final images and they will not be big prints. After this little excursion I”ll be headed to Furnace Creek Inn where I will be leading a Phase One PODAS workshop for a week. We have folks coming from around the world to try out the Phase One camera systems in this marvelous landscape. You can follow the event on the PODAS blog by Clicking Here. I’ll post a new shot here tomorrow and if all goes well on Friday night I’ll post a Neon Boneyard shot.
