Podcast recorded at Bally's Hotel in Las Vegas, site of the WPPI Convention. Looking out my window at Bally's, I see the Las Vegas version of the Eiffel Tower. As promised in the show, I photographed the structure at twilight. This shot was captured with the new Panasonic Lumix FX8 camera that I'm testing. Settings at ISO 400, 1/15th @ f-2.8, in Raw mode with the aspect ratio set to 16:9. You can see some noise in the sky, but the colors are vivid and sharpness quite good with the Leica zoom lens. I talk a bit about this camera in the podcast, as well as a follow up to the Canon Rebel XTi (400D) post from last week.
I went to my first official WPPI event last night - a talk by Art Wolfe, who is a talented nature photographer. Art shared lots of tips, discussed his upcoming public television series Travels to the Edge, and of course showed off his photos.
Monthly Photo Assignment
I also discuss this month's photo assignment, Self Portrait. I think it's time we get out from behind our camera and get in front of it. As with all of our assignments, I hope you add a creative twist to your approach. You can read more about how to submit on our Submissions page.
