Photoshop World – Experience the Light!

Ya, the name might be Photoshop World but it’s a whole lot more than that! Sure, you learn lots of Photoshop stuff, lots of Lightroom stuff, a lot of digital darkroom stuff, period. But you can also learn a whole lot about photography from some of the best shooters. I think more than anything else, all the instructors are at Photoshop world to share their greatest gift, their passion for communicating visually! It’s just a week away and I’m home jamming in creating new content for all my presentations. Here’s just some of the classes I’ll be teaching: Tuesday, April 08, 2014 AVIATION PHOTOGRAPHY 6:00pm – 7:00pm | Photography Technique F/stop and shutter speeds can be a challenge but nothing like telling the story of a country through the eyes of the folks who helped preserve it. From aircraft to the people behind them, learn how to approach, photograph and tell the story telling our history in a click. Wednesday, April 09, 2014 LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHERS 101 – REPLACING TECHNIQUE...

Carrying on the Family Tradition

We first meet Susie Yazzie back in 2010. Our dear friend Albert is her nephew so we meet her being a friend of the family. Sussie is a legend and when we first meet her, she was nearing the century mark in age, so her daughter, Effie was there to help her. Either being with Albert, having the name Moose or both left an impression so we were always warmly greeted at their Hogan. Sadly, Sussie passed away in 2013. She was such a calm, peaceful and loving spirit who I loved to talk with. She will be missed. Effie though is carrying on her mom’s legacy in her mom’s Hogan, spinning and weaving at the loom. Effie retired as a nurse so the Navajo craft of weaving continues with both the next generation of Navajo and those who visit the Hogan. You can see a photo of Sussie in the lower right corner of the photo. This Hogan is located on the backcountry loop that you need a...

Planes on a Stick

“Planes on a Stick” is what I call those aircraft placed on poles. There are actual books telling us the locations of all these planes state by state, so I’m not the only one whose been sucked into them. Now I don’t go after every single one I see, there has to be a couple of criteria. One is when I’m kidnapped by my best friend Kevin and on this occasion, it was a good time to do planes on a stick. What made it a good time? The direction of the light on the aircraft and the clouds in the sky. Shooting with the Df / 18-35AFS at the Grand Junction airport, I simply walked up to make the shot. Now the gesture of the aircraft comes in part from how the aircraft is mounted on the poles. The rest came from the tilt of the camera when I shot. Other than removing the poles in Photoshop, the images was processed just in ACR. And the reason for...

Slot Cyn Details

There is no doubt that the play of light on this marvel of nature bringing out color, texture and patterns was by far what I loved most about Slot Cyn. Though we shot on an overcast day which you’re warned not to do, I found the saturated light working perfectly for my style of photography. These images out of the D4s / 18-35AFS shot at ISO1600 f/8 were simply processed through ACR and then in Photoshop, where I ran this Nik Recipe (which you now have) that I created in Color Efex Pro. Hope you like the details as much as I...
