Yesterday we also had the treat of having Nathan Holritz come all the way from Tennessee to shoot with Tim and me! He totally rocked and it was a blast hanging with him this whole weekend!
Be on the lookout for a few chimping shots of Mr. Holritz as I think Tim caught him sneaking a peak a few (dozen) times! :P
Here's a quick collage of the day and you can see a bigger one on davidjay.com under my Schedule.

My friend and long time OSP comrad Janey invited me down to LA today to hang with three of the greatest wedding photographers of all time (Gary Fong, Joe Buissink, and [B]ecker! :) I felt the same that I felt when I first met Mike Colon and the only way to describe it I guess would be like a young aspiring basketball player getting to spend the day with Michael Jordan, or a young golfer getting to hang with Tiger Woods.
Honestly these guys are incredible and Gary Fong gave us each one of his new Lightsphere PJ to try out tomorrow so I'll be sure to post some pics from it after the wedding!
After that I got to celebrate with Raya and Forest because Raya graduated from Brooks today! Yipee!!!
Click Here for more pics! :)

At the end of the wedding last night I was exhausted and I realized two things:
1. I'm very out of shape and I need to exercise more...err...just exercising period would be a good start.
2. If I was a little bit shorter photography would be so much less tiring! The day after a wedding my legs are dead and these shots from Chris and Tim showed me why! I pretty much squat the whole day. :)

Showit is HERE!!! Thank you thank you thank you for being so patient with me! I've never done anything like this and there were so many i's to dot and t's to cross...not to mention x's and o's for Forest to masterfully program into Photoshop to make this thing work so well! :)
I'm sending this email from the lobby of our hotel in New York because I was so excited to let you all know! We're on our way to shoot in Rhode Island this weekend but stopped off here to shorten the trip a bit - and quite a trip it's been! :)
As a way of saying thank you to the OpenSourcePhoto community I am offering $50 off to all members who invite one new person to join OSP before August 21st, 2005!
Also, because I want the newly reffered members to feel the true OSP love I will also offer them a $30 discount so long as they order Showit and post a welcome message in the "All About You" category before August 21st, 2005.
The $50/$30 will be refunded after the purchase.
In the weeks to come I'll also be offering some really useful additions to Showit so stick around OSP for sneak previews and happy slideshowing in the meantime!
Showit...always a crowd pleaser! :)
