I think I have finally recovered from my first NAB show and let me tell you, it took a lot out of me. The show was absolutely huge, filling the entire Las Vegas Convention Center with booth after booth of audio and video gear and services. I haven’t walked that much in a really long time. It was also pretty enlightening because, being a photographer, I really had no idea just how much stuff goes into producing broadcasting media, or just how complicated it can be. I have a whole new respect for anyone working in video or audio production. I’m also happier than ever to be a photographer, where life seems much simpler now.
I will cover a few of the cool things I saw later this week but I thought today I would share just a couple of iPhone pics I took in my off hours. When I wasn’t attending classes at Post Production World or walking the show floor, I was shooting some of the amazing landscape that surrounds the outskirts of Las Vegas. This included a quick trip to Grand Canyon West, Lake Mead, Valley of Fire, and Lake Mead. I actually took a real camera with me but I am knee deep in processing images, including some time-lapse stuff that is making my MacBook work overtime. I didn’t take my laptop with me, opting to go light with just my camera, an iPad, and my iPhone 4.
I should have plenty of shots to share in the days to come so consider these iPhone shots to be a quick tease.
