Last time I was in Vegas, this past March during WPPI, I won two jackpots, one on the quarters and one on the dollars--came just in time as we were moving into the new house....they weren't big, but good enough to get a free ride to the airport from the folks at Bally's. Of course, if you add up all the times I've lost in Vegas, maybe I've broken even--then comes along this genie looking feller named JT Smith.

Yep, JT decides to hold another one of his world famous events, invites a few folks from GG that I've always wanted to meet, so I says to JT, I might just make it for at least a day or two--this was months ago.

Well JT's been asking, I keep telling him my schedule shucks write kNOW, then he says WTF? I says K, let me sea what meeez can do...see, I see slots already.

Well here's the deal, I can only make it one day, Friday, but the good news is I'll get in on Thursday and leave on Saturday which gives me a couple of options--see I get in early on Thursday and leave mid-afternoon while JT and his folks are basking in the desert sun--course JT reflects a lot of that sun back making his event even hotter than it's known for (grin).

So option one is I'll play a few slots and link up with everyone on Friday, option two says play a bit of black jack then link up with everyone on Friday, option three says gamble only $100, which lasts about ten minutes or less in Vegas, then do some shooting--so who knows, you may see me shooting in Vegas next weekend....flights booked, hotel room is booked, unless things change, which they can, I'll be there at least for one quick deal or a few pulls on the slot machine...can't wait to meet a few of the GG folks....one quick note, I want to get an image while I'm there, a night time glamour shoot with a unique twist for my books I'm working on.

So if you see me with my camera out in front of Bellagio's with a Hensel Premium Porty pack and a ringflash, or better yet, a Hensel beauty dish with the gel in the center over a 7-inch grid and the camera white balance set at 3200K, then I'm working on my book photos.

See, there is this cool trick. Place a CTO, 3/4 to Full CTO over your flash that hits your subject, set your white balance to tungsten light, then watch your background go blue and your subject go golden. You can also do this with a ring flash too. Well more on it later, but look for at least one photographer on the lose on the evening of the 13th......

Again, if you haven't been to one of JT's SuperShoots you're messing out, especially the Vegas one and I can assure you, come heck or high water I'll be at HTL next year unless JT's had nuff of me...wishing you all the best, rg sends!

Hey RG,

Glad you can make at least one of the days. I was beginning to wonder. See you soon!

[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] LOL I almost crapped my pants laughing. I'm so sorry. The description was so long after your part that quickly looking at the schedule to cut and paste it I missed yours.

Thanks for being good humored about it.

For the Record, no you don't suck at all.

1 p.m. to 2 p.m. - "Find the Light" A closer look in "Seeing the Light". Seminar and Workshop by J T Smith. This workshop will explain in depth where to look for the best places to find and utilize wonderful natural light to photograph models. Emphasis will be put on the quality of light to create images with impact in Beauty Photography.

You know what is funny JT is that I was just looking at the schedule the other day to see if Monday had been fleshed out yet and I saw the list of Friday's mentors and was all, "Where is JT's segment then I realized it was first but didn't look like part of it because the description acts to separate it from the rest of the schedule. Strange trick of how you expect to see things.

See you in a week.

There is two options I have for Monday and I am leaning towards maximizing shooting time with actual studios and hotel property again. I do have another location worked out to go to but after running two full days until sunset I am leaning towards maximizing shoot time on the last day with all of our models.

That will explain that. I will determine this weekend and let everyone know.
