SCAA Photo Essay: Personalities
Road Reports article by Mark Prince

In this photo essay from the 2004 SCAA Show in Atlanta, we get to see a good range of the cast of characters from the show floor, Barista competition, and the opening keynote.

It looks like someone was hung over and had trouble holding his head upright--a lot of the pictures are tilted. ;)

Billy and Bronwen make a nice couple.  When's the wedding? :)

Thanks for sharing the experience with those of us who couldn't make it.

No photographer's eye have you :) :) :) :)

Actually, I was shooting most of the weekend with a 50mm on the camera, nice and fast, but fixed focal length. On top of that, the dSLR has a 3:2 capture ratio (wider than most digicams's 4:3 ratio). So shots were wide, not very tall. Third, the dSLR's mm magnifier is 1.6X (the cmos chip in my Canon is that much smaller than 35mm film), so my 50 was more like an 80mm on a traditional camera.

All that combined meant that to get what I wanted into the shot, I often had to tilt the angle for shooting. Plus, it's considered artistic :-P

Still, just today, I dropped major dime (about $600) on Adorama.com on two new lenses - a 50mm 1.4 (zooooooooooooooooooooooooom fast, not a zoom). and a 28mm f1.8 sigma lens (which is about 46mm on my camera). Next year, I should be able to capture more in bad light at the next shows.
