I was off to Las Vegas again, but this time with Stephanie DeFranco, and her mom. Stephanie told me about a workshop called Seniors Ignite, and asked if I wanted to attend. This is not a workshop for seniors, as in senior citizens, like me, but HS seniors. Photographers from all over (we even had a guy from Australia) unite to share skills, creativity, and business wisdom to other photographers. The whole experience was pretty amazing, plus it was a lot of fun. Anytime the DeFrancos are involved, it spells fun. This year, the event was held at the Westin Lakes just outside of Las Vegas in the town of Henderson. It was very beautiful, and so unlike LV on the strip.

|Our food was served in these nice cardboard boxes...|
Both Stephanie and I borrowed lenses to try out. The picture was taken in our room by the beautiful sheer curtains…are we desperate for backgrounds or what?
|Me…inside our room.|
One of the nice things about going with Stephanie is that we get great photos of each other taking pictures.
We did our own model shoot. Here are some of the shots of me taken by Stephanie.
This picture was shot and edited by Stephanie. She super imposed the scene that I was seeing through the window…the lake with the mountains behind. Is that not the coolest?

This is one of my favorite photos, also taken and edited by Stephanie.
