Was back at PMA today, didn't see AZ, but apart from missing that highlight, it was much better overall.
Mostly hung with Richard, as Al kept disappearing to do his own thing.
Checked out the Topaz demo again - pretty impressive. Looked at the Nik demo again as well, but wasn't as impressed by them.
Looked at the ThinkTank exhibit, but didn't get the opportunity to mess with the head of the weirdo running it
Went to the Jerry Ghionis workshop at the Seldex stand - they had a couple of wireless mics, and both only worked intermittently, which made it a bit of a pain, and didn't speak well of their preparation. Also, his MacBook stopped working, which led to a bunch of example-type demos - posing, etc - which were great. Thanks Apple!
I was, however, an example overweight Jerry Ghionis bride, which I suspect makes me the only one in this forum.
Then it was off to the Yervant talk upstairs - got some good info, but also took away the impression that he is a total tool. Spent WAY too much time sucking up to Apple during the talk, which became less vomit-inducing and more ironic when later in the demo when his MBP couldn't cope with something simple and he had to make excuses for it and move on. He said some good stuff, but is vastly self-impressed.
Also went to a Shelton Muller workshop and shot a beautiful bride:
We printed them out and put them on the Kodak Wall - we could win a prize! Doubt I will, though...
I like Shelton - he's a really good instructor.
So, much better today, but I would have left Yervant after about 10 minutes if I wasn't trapped in the middle of a row.
