I had an opportunity to go out to Los Angeles and participate in Adobe’s flagship event called MAX. Since I had not been before, I was’t sure what to expect. As a vendor (I was shooting for KelbyOne) I was stationed at the Hands on Camera Experience booth… more on that in a bit.
I have shot video for 25 years. I have shot commercials, documentaries, music videos, corporate and training, you name it. I have often taken my still camera, especially when shooting for HOPE worldwide, to capture stills of the exotic locales I work in. When I was a kid I had a small darkroom under our basement stairs. I used my fathers Kodak camera to experiment with and eventually went to my own Minolta, then Sigma, then finally Canon camera. Off camera flash was something I experimented with looooong time ago. So, I jumped at the chance to “get back in the game” when invited to a local MeetUp with my friend Kathy.
