Last week, Adobe made some big announcements about the Adobe Creative Cloud at an event in New York City. I wrote about the announcements in a couple of posts here on my blog. The first post was about the announcement of several new mobile apps, the release of their new Slide and Ink devices, as well as a few other announcements. The second post had to do with Adobe’s new Creative Cloud for Photography plan.
If you follow me on Twitter, you may know that I attended the event, and live tweeted it from my seat in Alice Tully Hall. Social media has always been important to me. When I attend live events, I always do my best to live tweet the event with photos, and important announcements, as they happen.
When I live tweet events, I like to use high quality photography to accompany the announcements, and I don’t think that iPhone photos are good enough. So last week, I brought my laptop, my Nikon D800, my 70-200mm lens, my 24-70 lens, and a USB cable to tether my camera to my laptop. Once the photos transferred to my laptop, I would edit them in Lightroom, and tweet them as the announcements were made. While the process can be a bit of a challenge for one person to do on their own, I was determined to do it well!
During the event, I was able to capture some high quality photos of the announcement from the third row of the theater. The most challenging task for me was quickly changing lenses from a seated position. Luckily, the seat next to me was empty. The problem was that every time I picked my camera up, the seat would automatically fold up, and my lens would try to roll through the seat cushion onto the floor. Luckily, that never happened.
Here are a few photos from the event.
