All told, I shot about 1400 pictures, posting just over 200 of them. There are pictures of the awards ceremonies that haven't been posted (Drew will post those, I think).
I had a lot of fun. I hope people enjoy the pics.
I shot the awards last night, but I think Drew's going to be posting those.
I also got a lot of swag. :-)
Hungry. Need lunch. Breakfast sucked. Didn't eat.
Back to work...
1. Don't hide behind your podium.
1.a. Panelists: Don't hide behind your microphone/open laptop.
2. Don't stand there with your hands in your pockets.
2.a. Do something *interesting* with your hands while you speak.
3. Don't touch your face while you're talking. This includes no thumb-sucking (I deleted that picture) and rubbing your nose (I might still have that one).
4. Panelists: Don't look bored while another panelist is speaking.
5. Don't call out the photographer, referring to him (or her) in the third person while he/she is (a) still in the middle of the audience, and (b) still in a position to take further pictures and/or ratchet the flash up to new, unseen levels of power.
5.a. If you *do* call out the photographer, don't then demonstrate a pose/facial expression you *don't* like to be photographed in. At least, not while the photographer is still
My camera is ready. I have a couple new lenses to play with, a new monopod to prop them up, and a new bag to carry it all around with. Now to get the rest of my packing done...
I'm planning to shoot the expo (of course), the keynotes, the awards ceremony, as many sessions as they'll let me into, and anyone famous (or semi-famous; or just cute) that I manage to bump into. Plus, I'm sure I'll make a lot of crazy-ass, arty-to-the-point-of-pretentious shots and make a Japanese tourist look detached and uninterested (no offense to any Japanese tourists who maybe reading; you probably have better glass than me).
I arrive in San Francisco on Sunday afternoon. I'm hoping I'll get some "local color" pictures, as well. I walked through Chinatown last time I was there (2005), but I didn't have my camera with me.
I'll be posting selected pictures in my blog here, as well as on my Joe Indie blog. And the best shots will also be posted to my photo blog. And pretty much everything I shoot that's in focus and doesn't seem inappropriate will be in the GDNet GDC galleries.
More news as it happens.
If you want to see my pics, you'll have to see them here, I guess, in the blog.
