I use a Nikon D90 with some serious camera protection. It has all the functionality I need and is heavy duty enough to take to parties. I like to use very fast, fixed lenses (no zoom). I am a big fan of the 50mm and now use a 30mm f1.4.
What is the coolest event you worked at?
I shoot lots of events, and they are all cool in their own ways, whether it’s baller or its underground. I was back stage at Ludacris/MIA, which was cool.
You lobby for hemp. Interesting… tell us more…
Industrial Hemp is not a drug, and is in fact a very useful resource that is great for the environment. Our federal government does not allow farmers to grow hemp, costing our economy $$$$$$$$ and untold jobs and potential. I believe that until Hemp is legal again (George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were hemp farmers, it was a staple crop for most of US history) America can never be great. Google it!
(Editor’s Note: I Googled it — per Ben’s request — and this the paid advertisement that appeared at the top of the screen: DC’s Top Drug Lawyer – We Make Sure Your Treated Fair)
I was at Chabad for Kol Nidre, the next Morning, and for the night service. I wanted to make up for the times I didn’t go during the year.
Where will you be for the first night of Hannukah?
Last year I went to this reception on Capitol Hill, and I would like to go the the lighting ceremony at the White House. Otherwise, let me know if there is a good “latke and vodka” party…
