What I’m Up To

What I’m Up To

I’ve been a little silent on here… but not for lack of things to rant about. I’ve been traveling to Lake Placid, watching the Olympics, and playing the game Mass Effect. I’ll be posting pictures from Lake Placid soon… and I’ll also be weighing in on the Mass Effect game (because there’s a little controversy [...]

Winter Chill – Wallpaper

Winter Chill – Wallpaper

I have been playing with my photography a bunch lately. Both taking shots with our new Canon G9, and then post-processing them in several of Adobe’s sweet tools, like Lightroom and Photoshop. I am amazed at how much work goes into the professional photographs we see in print media every day to get them looking [...]

I have discovered Adobe’s Lightroom

I have discovered Adobe’s Lightroom

I have discovered Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and I think I may be in love. Is that healthy? While processing our Cape Cod pictures taken on our new Canon G9 I decided to give Lightroom a spin… and it’s having two diametric effects on me. I am gigglingly delighted with the results… both the resultant photos [...]

Two Roses, One Flash

Two Roses, One Flash

Do you see the two photographs above? They are both of a pinkish rose, one a light pink and the other a deep pink. There’s also some profound differences in the photos stemming from the fact that one was taken with a flash and one was not. The one on the left was with a [...]
