Moose’s Basic Workflow

I’m constantly being asked “What’s my workflow?” I’m really never sure just what is really being seeked by this question nor what information is really useful to folks. It really is a lot like the image creation process itself which varies as we all know from photographer to photographer. It all depends on what you want in the end that determines all that comes before. So before I explain my workflow, understand what my end is all about. Let me use a real world example. You’ve probably noticed there are a number of blogs of late of aircraft from North Dakota where we spent the 4th. Thinking I was going for just to celebrate the holiday with friends, we ended up doing a lot of flying, over 5hrs and that produced a helluva a lot of images. Now one thing that I pride myself on is speed, speed in getting prints to the pilots to say thanks. To make this happen, all those images I captured need to be...

It’s Not Magic, It’s Vision

Paying dues, it’s how the biz operates. The amazing opportunities that seem to come my way I wish were just presented to me on a silver platter but such is not the case. There is a ying to the yang and after it being that way for three decades, I have no issue with the system. I know in the end that the opportunity I have in my heart will materialize. This is the relationship I have with Stead Airport, I put in my time doing photographs you wouldn’t think are your typical Moose genre and in the end, the opportunity appears that is just up my alley. That’s how the afternoon shoot with this gorgeous P-51D came about. The seed was planted years ago and on this day, it bloomed. It’s how I have come to operate. I wasn’t very patient when I was a kid with this system but life has taught me to be patient. It does come and when it does, oh, is it sweet!...

Adobe’s CC – A Couple of Thoughts

Ever since Adobe announced their Creative Cloud (CC) “updates” to the Creative Suite/Photoshop, I have had more than one email asking, …”WTF!” I’ll be the first admit that the roll out of this was not really, honestly done all that well (I know, understatement). I feel like I’m walking on eggshells writing this so bare with me. The first question I think YOU must ask yourself is, “Is this update what I need?” Having been fortunate to work with CC for awhile, I can honestly say that for my personal workflow it most definitely is. Why? It simply is faster, faster in performance and faster with features I need. Just the amazing updates to ACR are worth the price of admission in my book. This might not be the case for you. How do you determine if it is, do the 30day free trail and find out. Yes, you still download the software and load it on YOUR computer to use it. And here’s the next thing to ponder...
