Yesterday I spent time watching a tutorial on WordPress- I thought I knew enough only to realize I really need to know quite a bit more. Stay tuned as I will be updating again!
This is a shot from last week’s job- had a blast, made some great photos, and everyone could not have been nicer! One of those special jobs. To see more from the shoot, feel free to click on the above image. A new window will open up. Thanks for looking!!!
I just did a re-design on my Logo- Please feel free to let me know if you like it, love it, or don’t bother if you don’t care. I like it and it
has been a while since we have been living with our old logo. Feel free to write me through the contact page or here.
On Monday April 15, Adobe came out with Lightroom 5 (in Beta) During the past few days I have been putting the program through its paces. I have to say, all the new added features are absolutely incredible. Some of the features include smart previews, (you no longer need the original when editing), Upright a very unique way of correction distortion from even fish eye lenses. The radial brush that allows creative changes in just local areas. The spot/healing tool has been completely made over. In addition they have sped up the program so that it works even faster than it had in the past.
S0me features I would like to see included in the final release would be the following. Ability to shoot in live view while tethered and make camera adjustments from the computer. Being able to watermark the images with the file number (on the image) both for proofing as well as web galllery. It would also be nice to add keylines to images when in the book mode. Lastly as much as I l love the overlay ability it would be nice if we could combine overlay with final image for output. This would give the user endless ability to use templates that could be setup and print directly from Lightroom. Still an incredible bunch of enhancements that anyone who uses Lightroom in any capacity cannot ignore. Big thumbs up for this program.
Photo shot with an iphone as a solution to a real photo shoot problem. The results seen here were not easily obtained through conventional pro lenses and camera. Most of the real challenges of photography is solving problems. Often these problems are solved in an unconventional method. I sometimes refer to this as “McGyver” style, and I try to teach this out of the box thinking with my students.
This is from a recent shoot we did for a valve manufacturer introducing a new product line.
