WPPI Las Vegas

Earlier this month I went to Vegas for the annual Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI), the largest convention of its kind in the world. Outside of wandering around two gi-normous ballrooms full of tradeshow booths searching for the most beautiful products on the market to offer my clients (which I found- stay tuned!), my lovely supportive boyfriend and I strolled the (in)famous Vegas strip. After missing the Bellagio fountain multiple times by mere seconds, we finally managed to catch the show at one of my favorite times of day: the blue hour. Mmmmm. Throw in a faux Eiffel tower and Vegas doesn’t get better than this, unless a jackpot is jangling my tune, which it didn’t after dumping a whopping $7 in coins down the slots. Maybe next year I’ll be so lucky!

Summer in Winter | Green Lake Infrared Photography

If all Seattle winters were like this one, I might look forward to them rather than spending the summers trying to soak in the sun before it goes south for the winter. I, for one, have certainly been thrilled with the summer-like winter we’ve been having and joined the masses in bee-lining it for Green Lake the other weekend. Jake and I converted my old camera into an infrared camera (okay, HE was the one with the screw driver taking apart the camera while I watched), which basically filters out visible light and takes in only the infrared spectrum of light. It turns the sky black, anything green becomes white, and makes skin appear uber soft. We had lots of fun playing with the new toy! (Last image by Jake)
