I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who worked so hard to make my experience at Photo Romania so memorable. I know that making a festival run smoothly is no small task and you all accomplished it with agility and grace. With every little detail taken care of, I was able to thoroughly enjoy the event, meet a whole new group of friends and bring back wonderful memories and photographs of not only Cluj-Napoca but also Bucharest, Brasov, and Sighisoara.
For now, here are a few of the images that I have posted via Instagram, I’m sure that I’ll be using the rest of my images in future tips, tricks, and tutorials!
I really hope to see you at the festival again next year!

One of the greatest benefits of making images every day is that when I look back over the past, I’m often reminded of places that I’ve been, people that I’ve met and emotions that I’ve experienced – all which I might have forgotten if it weren’t for the aid of those still images that I made. Here are a few from Photoshop World – Atlanta, WPPI – Las Vegas, and PPA’s Texas School – Dallas.
And this morning I ran across this quote: Besides the nobel art of getting things done, there is the nobel art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials. -Lin Yutang

Wow. I had no idea just how beautiful it would be. Trust me, these images don’t do it justice – but maybe they will inspire you to check it out someday. Really, if you ever have a chance to drive through Death Valley, I would highly recommend it.
And I did captured some great backgrounds and textures to be incorporated into future composites…

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)! : )
