I have watched both of Joe's visits to the top of the +Burj Khalifa and even though I know he made it back safe and sound, it's still a bit nerve-wracking.  This was filmed earlier this year as Joe made a descent with the window washers who do this every.  Single.  Day.  There is no end to the sand in the desert and they clean away the sand just dangling by a rope.

Joe wrote a blog a few years back that's full of tips to help improve your pictures of fireworks this weekend.  It's great advice.  http://blog.joemcnally.com/2011/06/13/shooting-fireworks/

Joe's friend Mawgie is pretty much how I picture an angel.  Here's how he made that angelic lighting happen.
 
 He writes, "Improvisation ruled the day. Took a Nikon SB900 and zoomed that puppy to 200mm, and snookered it even further with a Honl snoot. Tried that alone, and the results were predictably harsh. Not too much spill, but bad dog light. Dropped a Lastolite Tri-Grip diffuser panel over it, and got soft light, and way too much of it. Not in terms of power, just in spread.
Out came the gaffer tape. (Is there anything in this world that can’t be made better with gaffer tape?) When we were done, there was maybe a 6″ square of diffuser left exposed. The rest of the panel is gaffered.
Amazing what a little diffusion will do. We went from harsh, awful light to just enough softer glow to cover the face and shoulders, but not dull the wings."

+Anne Cahill , Joe's wife, is one of this year's instructors at +KelbyOne 's Photoshop World in Las Vegas.  DSLR Camera Basics for Beginners and Finally Explaining Autofocus are her subjects so do make sure you sit in on those.  Annie is a very knowledgeable and extraordinary photographer and happens to be one of the most delightful people on the planet.  #justsayin  Joe will be teaching several classes as well.  More on to come.

1986 marked the 100th birthday of Lady Liberty.  Of course Joe wouldn't miss a party like that.  There were thousands of ships on hand, or rather, in the water that day.  What a sight!

"People tend to get back, back, back so they get everything in but in the end they got nothing in... You push your camera in - you have to fill the frame".
