Downtown Las Vegas family dinner

DanieljGregory_DTLV_3797My sister-in-law and brother-in-law came by and got me out of the hotel into the fresh, well really hot, air of downtown Las Vegas for dinner tonight. It was great to see them and catch up with all that is going on in their lives. They took me down to the area of downtown Las Vegas that has been under going a sort of resurgence since Zappos.com moved in to the neighborhood.

DanieljGregory_DTLV_3720I hadn’t been down to that area of town since the new construction was completed. More importantly, they let me eat some really good pizza (the line at the Thai place was about an hour, and I was hungry). I hauled along the Nikon Df I rented this week from Borrowlenses and a 50mm f/1.8 lens. I am still amazed at the quality and range of the sensor in the Df for low light work.

As we wondered around container city and down a few blocks of Fremont Street it was a lot of fun to just point an click at all of the amzing color relationships and stuctures. A great evening with family and the camer, who could as for more. From a Denny’s with a full bar to fire that shoots out of a praying mantis antenna, I mean really who could ask for more. Then again it is Vegas.

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Normally when I get asked about film and digital, I talk about the darkroom days being less and less easy to find, changes in media, or how the industry has shifted. I might tell a story about how I used to work versus how I work today. This time I had a very quick response that could have been seen as tongue in cheek, but in the end, it seemed to be an answer that really resonated in the conversation. After all, a story is a story, and light is light.

This week’s podcast talks about my answer to this wonderful question and how I have evolved over time as a photographer to land on what I think is a great way to think about how we all deal with changes in the photographic industry.
