    I had the opportunity to go to the EG Conference in Monterey, CA this year and met a lot of really cool people. I had dinner with a group of photographers, talked to Matt Groening, etc.

    Some of the photographers there:

    Elliott Erwitt
    Frans Lanting
    Chris Rainier
    Rick Smolan
    Trey Ratcliff (stuckincustoms.com)

    Anyways, because of the dimmer photos I had, I did a few b&w on black photos which I liked and then went for the overkill and did it for the rest of the photos I had. :tongue: Obviously, some came out better than others, but I think it makes for an interesting set of photos (perhaps too many).

    Video sample, surprisingly nice audio from the camera from maybe 5 rows away.
