Friday I went to the L.A. Convention Center for another Scott Kelby Training. This one was on Photoshop for Photographers. It was REALLY good! For those who know me, you know my goal is to take the best picture possible and not fix it during post production. A philosophy I plan to continue to live by, however, the tools that I learned will help me make some of my portrait work just that much better.

The above picture is one I took on my way back to the train stop at the end of the day. I did play with it using some of the tips I learned in the class. Mainly to pull a little more of the magenta that was starting to develop in the sky with the buildings and their lights. Just simple stuff for now.

I did buy a potentially cool and fun program that I will hopefully have time to play with this week. But for now, it’s time for nighty night!


All Things SeaWorld

This week’s photo spotlight is brought to you from one of my favorite places. I had fun on Tuesday spending the day at SeaWorld with Maureen and Lily. And although I got some cute pictures of Lily, the star of this week’s post is one of the East African Cranes that performs in the Blue Horizons show… pretty happy with this shot!


Week 2 – Photo Journey

No sports last week which was really weird! (and a little sad) but I did have the chance to take some pictures of my two favorite little girls.

I was really happy with the photo shoot and so was Mom. I really like the look of this picture. Not the best framed, <sad face>. I like it because is shows her natural beauty. No forced smiles just sitting on the grace chillin’


Photo Journey

One of my favorite websites to learn about photography is Digital Photography School. Lots of great articles on many different topics related to photography. One of them I read last week talked about how to maintain creativity in photography. One of the suggestions was a photo blog. Well, I need another blog like I need a hole in my head so I’ll use this one. Aren’t you thrilled?!?!

Today’s entry is from San Dimas. A beautiful classic car.



A few weeks ago I had to walk to down to pick up a rental car. So I took the camera just to see what I found… Here are some of my favorite pics… I wish I could do this more often.


Vacation Slides…

I have all my pictures posted from my trip to Yosemite. It was a great trip and so beautiful.

I have the pictures up on my photography website. They are right mouse button protected which means you can just right mouse button click on them and select Save As… If you see one you like just note the filename and email me. (And this is for those of you who I know) Below are the links… Enjoy!!!
