Lightroom 4 is no longer beta software. Adobe has just released it. During my evaluation of it, I found enough things in it to like and thought that I would upgrade if it came in under $100 and it did. The upgrade is $79 + tax, if applicable. After a few hiccups, I was able to download it. I think that the Adobe servers were quite busy this morning, so my automatic download would not start. I had to find…

I’m attending this workshop this weekend, March 10th. Sometime this week I need to pick a few photos where I think that I ‘showed’ up and a couple of others where I was close, but couldn’t/didn’t quite pull it off. As I’ve never taken one of Les Saucier’s workshops, I’m not quite sure of what his definition of showing up will be. Here’s the assignment: The only rule in Photography is that you have to Show Up. The Photographic Gifts…

I generally only head over to Google Analytics when something on my dashboard catches my eye. I noticed this the other day, a spike in the number of visits. I was curious what was the cause. I looked at the post that I did on February 10th, the post after the day of the spike and saw nothing much of consequence. I had done a post about making backgrounds from muslin and dye. No biggie. Usually I get these spikes…

I got a call from Adorama and the deal is done. They made me an offer that I could have refused, but didn’t. The had some stuff that I wanted, so I got it. So, here’s what’s on the way: D700 28-70 mm Nikkor f/2.8 VR 105 mm f/2.8 Nikon Micro (Macro) lens. Two of the items, the D700 and 28-70 mm are used, but in Like New, or Demo shape. For sure, Adorama beat me on the spread; they…

I’m excited to be back in the woods! This morning, I went back, without fog, and stayed for almost two hours. I was on a hunt for wildflowers, but they were not to be found. I looked high and low, hither and yon, to and fro and not a wildflower was spotted. Oh well. I had a great time listing to the woodpeckers, the squirrels scampering about, and the trickle of the stream. On the way I out I saw…

Curves Going over my photos from the past several years and preparing my books has been a great learning experience. Previously, I’d take the photos and move on. Now, having to go back to the past photos, evaluate them for inclusion in a book, and really ‘see’ them again has opened my eyes to what I really like and where I think that I connect in photography. Most of the photos that I selected, where I really felt that I…
