Vegas in Black & White

Photobucket

While down in Vegas, I figured out how to shoot in black & white mode on my camera. I'd never done it before. Go figure! It was fun trying to pre-visualize and then get immediate results. I LOVE how my camera converts the colors into b&w. I'm excited to use this function more often :)

Ok, so more about my experiences down at WPPI....

It all started on Friday evening.

I had driven down to Vegas by myself because my other friends from Salt Lake couldn't make it to the Business Institute. I had everything mapped out on Google and I was ready to do this part of the experience on my own. As I was sitting at a stop light one block away from the hotel, I heard someone calling my name (I had my window rolled down because the weather was very pleasant). It was my friend Anna from BYU!

We went through the entire photo program together and I hadn't seen her for almost 4 years. It was wonderful to have a friend during the Business Institute, but even better to have a chance to catch up with Anna and talk about our businesses and goals during the breaks. I feel so blessed that we ran into each other again.

We also ran into our friend Jon on Monday morning, who is an amazing wedding photographer who shoots with FILM. I just found out that Jon will be sponsored by Fujifilm. Congrats, Jon! I always feel privileged to know you :)
