Nightscape In Orlando

Ever since the inclusion of merge to pano in Adobe Camera Raw, I have truly enjoyed creating panos. They show the world in a different fashion which can be very enjoyable with landscapes. Now finding a purpose and space for them afterward is a different story. While in Orlando I made sure to shoot a […]

Getting Over the PSW Blues

This is actually a real thing. Last I week I was teaching at Photoshop World and I had a great time. Thank you to all that came out and attended the event. But now that’s over and we’re all back home in our regular routines, we have to deal with that lull. When you’re at […]

Depth of Field and Planes

Precon 2017 was a Hoot!

Yesterday’s Precon was a blast. We went to Stallion 51 in Kissimmee and Stallion holds a collection of mustangs by some really nice people.

Honoring the 75th Doolittle Reunion

B-25’s Keep Arriving

It’s been five years since I was at Grimes Field, in Urbana, OH and it’s just as good now as it was then. Grimes gathering of B-25’s in honor of the Doolittle Reunion which celebrates its 75th anniversary on Tuesday, is a pretty amazing time. We have 12 B-25’s on the field which is great […]

Photoshop World 2017 is just five days away! I can’t believe how fast the year has gone by since Vegas but I can’t wait to be back in Orlando teaching. It’s been so long since Orlando I don’t even have a recent photo from there. But that’s okay, with great classes and lots of great […]
