This year I spent Christmas in … you guessed it.. VEGAS! Vegas is one of those cities Southern Californians go to for every single holiday. I mean every single one. I’m not sure why or how it became that way, but somehow it’s a tradition for not only my family, but everyone I know.
I’m back again with pictures from Elite Ballet Theatre’s Swan Lake!
Since I got my micro four thirds camera and my iPhone, getting wide angle shots had been a big thing. Unfortunately, my 35mm lens on a cropped sensor DSLR just isn’t cutting it. Because of that, I’ve been using my DSLR less and less. 🙁 I decided to try out Nikon’s D750 for the show to see if I would like it.
The weekend before Thanksgiving, I went hone to shoot Elite Ballet Theatre’s Swan Lake performance. Hope you enjoy these dress rehearsal pictures! Performance pictures to come soon. 🙂
I just came back from a five day trip in LA!
Lots and lots of pictures for you all, so please bear with me. 🙂 I’ll try to make it as much like a picture diary as possible with little stories here and there.

Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Joanna. She was my roommate the first year I moved to the city. I sometimes call her my wifey. This girl goes through thick and thin for me, so I do the same for her.
one project that i do year after year is shoot elite ballet theatre’s annual performance. it’s a great opportunity because i love shooting live shows. i also shoot people in the studio every so often, but it’s different. with live shows, you only get one shot to get it right. once it’s gone, it’s gone. i guess it forces you to pick and choose which seconds you want to capture. with a studio, you’ll eventually get the perfect shot, but it’s almost never ending. what marks the point of perfection?
