your photos are beautiful! I've been in television/video since the late sixties, so I notice images that stand out above the ordinary, as yours do. I especially love your shot of Al Gore. So much kinetic energy there.

You must be in heaven to be in the vicinity of so many fasinating people at the CGI.


Lovely photo of Angelina.

I agree -- all of the photos are so sharp and crispy. Nice saturation.

I'm curious about your rig -- I know what camera you're using, but what about the lens?

Lindsay, very nice photo.

I know it's supposed to be easy to get a candid shot of someone who acts for a living looking delighted--after all, she could be projecting delight while mentally inventorying the leftovers in her fridge--but the inner glow is what you somehow picked up here.

She's just so damn happy to be there, doing what she's doing.

Thanks for all the positive feedback. I'm so glad people are enjoying the pictures. I had a great time taking them.

The lens I used at CGI is a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 (aka "The Clenis")--I started calling it that because, well, it's huge and white and very desirable and capable of getting the operator into a lot of trouble.

If you click through to any of my Flickr photos, there's a link on the bottom right of the page that says "More Properties"--that gives you the EXIF data for that shot: focal length, exposure, metering mode, etc.

LB's photos are world class... as is her choice in other's photos she posts.

LB's no slouch in the writing department, either.

Ahhh... I know that lens. *Very nice* I'm sure the image stabilization feature helped at CGI -- keeps you from having to slow-down your exposures indoors.

I had an earlier (pre-white) 200 with that super-quiet ultrasonic motor. Good stuff.

LB has many strong points... I like her politics as well. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree... eh?

Ah, I remember back in the day when Lindsay was soliciting advice about what camera to buy. Lovely pics - thank you.

Hi Lindsey! I was one of the people who were at both presentations with Angelina Jolie. If you have any other pictures of her, for example when she showed up at the beginning at the press conference and was standing next to me, pls send them to me. I am back home in Spain with my kids and they want to KILL me because I took no pictures. Frankly I was not aware of how incredibly famous Angelina is.

now if we could just arrange to educate some of the children in Washington, DC...:(
