So in my first post on the forums, I asked if I could bring in an external flash and got a few snippy comments on camera skills and enjoying the moment, etc.
Here: http://coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=47468
Well I'm really glad I have all these pictures -- even if they're with a point and shoot -- so I can keep enjoying the moment after the fact, and I hope you can too.

If I knew how to upload pics I would do the same!

well I hotlinked mine, which is bad forum etiquette usually, but it's facebook so who cares. basically I took the link from each picture I posted on fb and then clicked on the little "insert image" icon in the rich text version of posting. you just put the link there and they will appear when you post them. another thing you can do is use tinypic.com, imageshack.us or photobucket.com to host them. select the coding that uses brackets (like [IMG] ) and paste it into the comments.

This has been my dilemma for so long. I get tired of seeing the world through a lense, but I'm so grateful for those that catch those intimate moments.

Seriously . . . iamellyn, Mike, supre :blah

Do you ever feel like you are just one step away?

These are awesome. And great proof that you can get good results with a P&S as long as you know what you're doing.

I'm gonna add some to my Best of 2011 (http://coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=48481) thread, if that's ok.

but

they do fulfill there purpose (ie create lasting memories) so they are defiantly a win

I did bring it, but I was having so much fun, I really didn't end up using it much. I think it's sort of a blessing in disguise that they don't allow pro cameras in. I think carrying around all that equipment would have distracted me a lot.

Nice Pictures WAZDOG! I think you've sold me on your camera. I've had a hard time deciding and your wonderful pics might have made the difference.

Here is another processed image as an abstract of the main stage.
