I can’t believe that I will be leaving Japan tomorrow. I have had such an incredible trip and I thank all of the lovely people that I’ve met and that have helped me negotiate this wonderful culture. Here are a few images form my travels. I expect that many of them will end up in future demos that I do! Doumo arigatou gozaimasu.

I thought it might be time to share a few more photographs from my personal project – “Passenger Seat”. Because I talk so much about Photoshop and photo manipulation, I thought I would point out that the motion blur in these images was captured in camera.

I thought I would share a few more photographs from my personal project – “Passenger Seat”.
And I thought this quote was fitting since I like to study what can’t normally be seen. “We do not see the world as it is. We see the world as we are.”

I thought it might be time to share a few more photographs from my personal project – “Passenger Seat”.And yes, the motion blur in these images was captured in-camera.
Happy Friday, fall is finally here. : )

I’ve finally made some time over the past few evenings to take a closer look at some of the images that I took in Shanghai. I’m sure that it drives some people crazy that I don’t post my images immediately, but it’s been my experience that over time some of the images that I initially really like, just don’t stand the test of time. Hopefully these will.
You can see more on my Behance site if you’d like.
And, yes, I am having an excellent time exploring with my tilt-shift lens. : )

A few days at home in California.

After reviewing the photographs that I’ve taken over the past few weeks, it looks like I’ve been feeling a bit blue. Perhaps confined as well.

I was lucky enough to take an extra day while teaching a class at the Santa Fe Workshops and sneak some quick pics near Ghost Ranch. New Mexico has such stunning landscapes.

I thought that I would post a selection of images that I’ve taken over the past few months.
But it seems to me, that even if you place seemingly random images together, they create their own relationships and meanings…

I am always a bit disconcerted by the visuals and atmosphere of Las Vegas.
It seems to draw loneliness like magnets do metal.

I enjoy creating series of images which, when shown next to each other, create their own, unique relationships between frames. The first photos were taken walking across a bridge from Kentucky to Ohio, the second were in Chicago and the third were approaching SFO.

While traveling in Mexico, I was overwhelmed with the incredible color palette of the region. So, when the group of (ridiculously talented) photographers that I was traveling with were given the challenge to submit an image to “best represent Cabo San Lucas and the surrounding region”, I decided that I’d better do something really different if I had any chance of winning the contest! Instead of realistically representing the location, I focused on the colors, movement and spirit of the people – creating a blanket of the “Colors of Mexico”.
If you have time and want to check out the other submissions, click here and vote for the image that you like the most. Certainly I don’t expect to win – although I do think “Colors of Mexico” would look fantastic printed 12 feet wide behind the registration counter)! : )

I thought I would post some images today instead of a tip and technique to remind me why learning all of this is important – so that I can make images!
(Plus, I’ve decided that instead of posting photos to facebook, each week I will choose some of my recent favorites and post them to my blog. That way, regardless of if you follow my “Personal” or my “Like” page of FB, everyone will see the same content.)

Many of you know that I spend a lot of time in airplanes flying between events for Adobe, and in fact these flights were the motivation behind “Window Seat – the Art of Digital Photography and Creative Thinking”, but what I don’t always tell people is that I’m scared to fly. And it’s not a rational fear. I “know” that there are plenty of things that I do that are far more risky, but it’s the lack of control (and the fact that when flying, we are moving through the air at 500 mph in a fragile little metal tube and, as I learned from my father (who is an engineer), all metal has stress points that can fail).
However, I decided that I didn’t want that to stop me from taking photographs from a helicopter over the Great Salt Lake in Utah. So last summer when I was out for Adobe’s Educator Summit, I took the time to make it happen. Obviously I’m a little behind on my editing, but here are six of my favorite shots.

Over the holiday break, I worked on one of my personal projects – “Passenger Seat – Images in Motion”. I hope to write up the process one of these days when I have time. – Maybe it should be my next book project!
