Home from Toys for Tots with Taylor Swift, Danielle Peck and Jimmy Wayne! Great show! That Jimmy Wayne had the whole room streaming tears with his stories! Taylor is way too sexy for 16. Danielle was dynamite. Pictures will be delayed due to power outage tomorrow at my office, sigh.

Shot a two Dutch hiphop acts on friday, a few DJ's on thursday. Tonight no bands. Nice for a change... I'll be at a DnB party, dancing instead of photographing

So why are you at the office on a Saturday?

Any luck with the gift "FOR MY DAUGHTER"?

The only thing I want for me from Taylor is her....in a couple of years of course! but heck, then I'd be your age and not know what to do with it, or not have the energy!

I'll be shooting the Trans-Siberian Orchestra this afternoon. They are playing two sold out shows here today.

Tell me Dwight, how is the 300 2.8 handheld? I've got two songs, and I'm looking to put my new Tamron 17-50 2.8 on the tripod for full stage shots shooting it with the remote cable, while handholding the 300.

I hear they are increadible live. Never had the chance to see them though. I love their inturpitation of christmas songs. I might head to Albany NY to see them a couple days before christmas but it would be about a 6 hour drive each way. Can't wait to see some of your pics. I have all 4 cd's and their DVD.

I think Dwight is out of pocket today. I've heard him say the 300mm IS works great handheld.

They are absolutely phenomenal live. I saw and shot their show last year, and I was in complete awe. I've yet to see another show that compares with the spectacle that is TSO. Here are some shots from last year. I hope to do as well again today.

I too love their interpretation of the classic Christmas hymns.

The 300mm f/2.8L IS is my favorite lens and I always handhold now that I have a 400mm f/2.8L IS that sits on my full Wimberley Head tripod setup. I do have a lot of light at the casino but as for weight or the ability to handhold steady enough I don't find it to be a problem ... subject movement is much more of an issue. I used it a lot last night but with my power out all morning I have just downloaded the 2300 images and haven't even looked at them yet! Another way to put is that I always start my concerts with 300mm f/2.8L IS on one body and 300mm f/2.8L IS on the other. Part of the reason this works for me even for one or two songs is that I can get the whole stage with the 70mm FL from just in front of the lightboard ... so I shoot both bodies "down front" from the sides and when I feel the time constraint closing in I was backwards up the center isle to the lightboard shooting the whole time. Also, you can go to my website and look at the closeups and check the EXIF to see what I get ... I don't have time to give you URLs right now.

Well, I shot the Toys for Tots on Friday night and got fabulous images that in my pipeline. Last night I drove 50 miles through torrential rains and shot Shalonda & A Touch of Soul playing a Christmas party and will start a thread shortly. Busy weekend.

I shot another local band last night where the only available lighting was 3 blinking par 48s on a stand. But I made it work...pics later! I'm on my way to the museum now.

After last weekend shooting something like 25 bands over three days at the Meredith Festival this weekend will be much quieter. A rehearsal/recording studio has asked me to shoot their Christmas party on Sunday afternoon night. They have a stellar line up of well known (and not so well known) Australian musicians and are going to fill me with food and booze as well as keep me entertained. It should be a lot of fun.

The girl in the white dress I shot a few months ago called tonight. Saturday morning I have a shoot inside a Hooters restaurant with her for their calendar. This is about 2 hours before they open. She wants 3 shots to submit. My strobes are on the way with the softbox.
