DNC 2008 Slideshow

Finally got around to posting a slideshow of some of my shots from the DNC that unfolded over the last week in Denver. Robert and I spent several days shooting the event, and it was truly a blast. Insanely fun.

I shot all of these photos, with the exception of the photos I'm in (Robert took those) and the one photo of Obama that's been vandalized to make him look like Hitler(Robert took that one as well - wish I'd found it, but I never saw it).

These images were captured with a Canon EOS 40D and two different lenses. One lens is an image stabilized, ultra-sonic telescopic zoom lens (EF-S 17-85mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM). The larger lens is a Canon L-Series image stabilized, ultra-sonic telescopic zoom lens (EF 100-400mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM) with a 77mm circular polarizing filter and an ET-83C hood.

I've posted some of the shots as a 10 Meg (4:30) Adobe Flash slideshow(dncc_08.swf) that you should be able to open and view with any browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.). To view the slideshow, just click on the photo above.

If you want to view the slideshow as a Windows executable, you can play this version (dncc_08.exe), and it allows you to play, pause, skip forward, etc.

Image post-processing was done in Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended. The slideshow was created using Imagematics Stillmotion Pro, which I highly recommend.

The soundtrack is a modified version of Honest Mistake by The Bravery. The modification is that I imported the song into Audacity and repeated one of the refrains because I wanted to stretch the song a bit. Original lyrics in extended entry.

THE BRAVERY
An Honest Mistake

People
They don't mean a thing to you
They move right through you
Just like your breath
But sometimes
I still think of you
And I just wanted to
Just wanted you to know
My old friend...
I swear I never meant for this
I never meant...

Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
An honest mistake

Sometimes
I forget I'm still awake
I fuck up and say these things out loud

My old friend...
I sweat I never meant for this
I never meant...

Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
An honest mistake

Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
An honest mistake
