Flash Bus Tour with Hobby & McNally: After Class

wpid-flashbus-2011-03-22-21-121.jpg Ended up in detention with Numnuts & The Strobist after getting schooled in Flash Bus Tour ’11 proved a wonderful thing. I enjoyed their time to talk with me one-one-one about their experiences in becoming what they are now: BIG {humble} STUFF.

I loath the feeling of being in detention trouble. In this case, Amanda Tipton (pictured left) and I grinned.the.whole.time.

The $100 day passed rather quickly thanks to:

  • Listening to pokes (Sorry, Polaroid Boy)
  • Hearing Jokes (Sorry, Canon users)
  • Taking notes (Took more  than in chem class).

Couldn’t be prouder to shake hands with veteran National Geographic Photographer Joe “Numnuts” McNally and check off #35 in my list of 101 goals in 1001 days.

FACT: 3/400+ people wore shorts at the Flash Bus Tour in Denver. I counted. Proud to show off my pale legs aside David Hobby. wpid-flashbus_tour_detention-2011-03-22-21-122.jpg

PS- Wore my Still Love Film shirt to convince these two veterans film is not dead yet. Didn’t work, yet.

PSS- Not to suck up, but Hobby you’re listed #95 my list of 101 goals in 1001 days.

PSSS – Shot with my trusty, not-so-rusty Nikon 24mm f/1.4 at f/2 sans flash, magic, or gypsy dust.

    Hi, totally random blog stalker here! I linked over when Becker linked to your Burning Man post, noticed that you were in Denver and subbed to your feed. I was there on Tuesday too! Ironically I sat through the whole thing and at the end of the day I thought to myself “I wonder if that Kern Photo guy is here?” and so it’s fun to hear that you were! Fun day. I have been simply forced to take the leap into off-camera flash 🙂

    My favorite thing about this picture is that David and RJ and Joe and I clearly have the same feelings about touching. Makes me laugh!
