I just got back home from Dave Ziser’s great Photo Pro Expo!  What a great event, with a really wonderful team of wedding and portrait shooters and software gurus.  I had a great time hanging out with Jim Haverstock, Nick Coury and my dear Fuji friends, Jackie and John!  I did a dealer visit with them to Dodd Camera in Cincinnati, another group of great folks!  I was the only nature/outdoor/travel speaker and it was fun to present to photographers that usually don’t do my kind of work, or at least not professionally!  I get energized visiting with these people, in fact riding up the escalator one morning, I looked up and saw the image below, luckily I had my Fuji X100T with me.



I would love to have been able to shoot that image with the new Acros film simulation in the new Fuji X-PRO 2!  If all goes according to plan I will have a X-PRO 2 in my hands Tuesday!  Expect a full review within a few days!  So watch the blog this week for a full review!!!



Back to the Photo Pro Expo.  They have great speakers and a wonderful print competition, and lots of networking among the attnedees.




Have a great Suyper Bowl Weekend and stay tuned!
