Las Vegas Workshop and lots of pictures!

8:47 AM
This was the first time I've been back to Las Vegas after we moved away 6 years ago.  My husband and I lived in Henderson (Green Valley area) for about a year  and a half and then we bought a condo in Northern LV (just outside of  Summerlin) where we lived for another 6 months until we moved here to  Texas. We were happy while we lived there.  I was excited to drive past  our old apartment and around our our neighborhood but instead of  happiness I just felt lonely.  I realized that home is where my family  is. Without Jonathon (my husband) it was just a place. As we're getting ready to move to  Colorado I have moments when I wonder, will this new place be right for us? Will it feel like home? And now I know, wherever my sweet family is, it will always be home. 

But anyways...on to the workshop!

I am so fortunate to have the sweetest, nicest, smartest ladies who attend my workshops. I'm serious. Everyone who I've met at my workshops have been the nicest people ever! I would want to be friends with them if we lived in the same city. And the Las Vegas workshop was no different. What a beautiful bunch of women both inside and out.

The workshop went very well. I feel like everyone was able to have their questions answers and left with a better knowledge of how to use their camera's to take those pictures that they really want.


The guy behind the counter at the coffee shop took our picture so I'm blaming him for it being out of focus! I should have invited him to the workshop. :)

Thank you, ladies. It was truly a pleasure meeting each one of you and I hope to hear from you all in the future.

I just might be coming to a city near you! Click here to see where I will be and to read more information about what my workshop entails. I would love to meet you!!

The workshop started at 7am so after I got back to my Aunt's house (she lives in Henderson) we went to lunch and then I was officially exhausted. I wanted to take pictures of the strip. (Even though I've been there more times than I can count.) But the thought of walking down the strip was beyond what I felt I was capable of so we decided to just drive down the strip while I took pictures. It was THE BEST way for me to capture all the pictures I wanted in less than 30 minutes.

So here it is...The VEGAS STRIP from the street perspective.

All of these pictures were taken with my 30mm lens, ISO 400, f/3.5, shutter speed ranges from 1/2500th to 1/4000th. In Lightroom I mostly added a bit of vibrance, contrast and a bit of clarity to a few.


And there you have it...The Vegas Strip in a nutshell. 

What are your Vegas memories? Have you ever been there?

I guessing, since you were using a 30 mm lens and probably not standing on top of your car as it drove down the strip, that you cropped the picture of the street sign?

Yes! I cropped the Las Vegas Street sign.
