    Yuma Photoshoot

    Well... Yuma was.... sandy... an windy.


    That is about the best I can say. We had up to approx 35mph winds and got sandblasted all day long. This is the first time I have done an on-location shoot, and I learned a lot. Unfortunately, the price of my learning was a lot of less than spectacular photos. Still, a number turned out ok. I haven't had a chance to go through them all, but I thought I'd share a few with you.

    Oh my gods! I love that one of Boba losing the EE3. Fallling into the Sarlacc pit, I presume. It's now on my desktop.

    Those are fantastic shots! The only issue with the fantastic Boba shot is that he didn't have his gun with him when falling into the sarlacc, and if he did have his gun, it would have been chopped in half by Luke's saber.

    Re: Yuma Photoshoot

    Gentlemen thank you so much for the time and effort it went into to creating such lasting photos.I have a feeling they will be shared countless times on the 'net.
    :thumbup:thumbup
    I do feel sorry the "boba" that has a ton of sand to clean out of their suit
    Thank you again

    Great photos!! Wish I could've joined in on the fun yesterday, but I had to work.
    I did drive right by there earlier today though on my way out to visit my parents. Isn't it the "Imperial Dunes" Rec Area off I-8?

    Miraculously he re-incarnated as Darth Vader today for a charity event in Scottsdale! "Boba" probably still has lots-o-sand though...

    Maybe he wasn't rolling along. Perhaps he was "walking" like he did a few times in the movies. I am not sure what else you would call it other than walking. Or maybe he used his thrusters?

    OH **** I had to think about that first
    I would love to see a flying r2 on tatooine instead of geonosis.

    Yes, I bet the sand is...well....a realy bad thing. Just think how much sand you get and bring with you at the beach.
