    Well, after being in Vegas and California for over 7 days, I took a total of 2,800 photos and cut them down to 1,065 keepers (there were alot of fucking around photos, and multiple shots of the same position) and got that down to 100 postable pics......here are all of them:

    This is the guy who's wife paid me to take photos of him playing poker, his first big tourney and he ended up winning 7k from it.....I was stoked to get $60 to take pics of him!

    Downtown LA was :cool: although we had 3 different security people form random hotels and buildings confront us about taking picture of buildings....they thought we were a terrorist threat.......we just said we were two po-dunk kids from Colorado, then they were like ohhhhhhh ok then you are ok :mamoru:

    [​IMG]

    Then to Rodonda Beach and the pier there

    For what picture(s)?

    None of the pics on here would have needed a faster lens (except the moose one), some of the ones on my page might have needed it, but overall the shots in there were taken with the consideration what speed I didnt have to work with :dunno:

    People who wear sunglasses while they play poker are tools.

    I don't know, no pics stands out. The one of the cards on the table is nice, but like the motorcycle one seems all out of focus.

    I'd get a faster lens so you can have more depth of field inside, seems all of them have a relaly narrow focus range.

    Naaa, the nights I was on the strip it was completely packed full of people so I couldn't get a good shot. I took a shit ton of fountain shots last time I was there, so I concentrated on other areas I didnt shoot

    people who don't understand why they wear sunglasses during poker and still do are tools.

    people who understand and wear them, not tools.

    :ugh: Uh... have you ever watched professional poker? Many of them wear sunglasses. I.e. Phil Hellmuth, 11 times WSOP gold bracelet winner.

    But ya... many people wear them and still suck. :wavey:
