Re: RAAF Roulettes Air Disply

Re: The Killer Mr. Jerry Lee Lewis

Bobby, being in Vegas you have the advantage of capturing celebrities where most of us would not have that opportunity. Do you think you'll miss opportunities such as this after you move? I would. Nice image of Jerry Lee Lewis !!!

Re: Warning: Self-portrait

Tom, I like these a lot. I also have been doing this to practice with different lighting and yes it is hard to determine the pose and where the light is going. At first I felt weird doing it but I kept telling myself that its just practice. It never occurred to me about how other people would be unc...

Re: Guitar Man

Hi Dave. Sorry for any confusion- I may have mixed up some of the before and after shots. The final one is the final edit to compare with the first one.
