New photo apps that heavily process photos get me almost every time! I have to try them out. I’ll never understand the digital magic under their hoods. Perhaps that’s the reason I feel so drawn to them?
Following Steve’s example, here are a few photos in a bonus round of the 7 day photo challenge.… Continue reading
When I work out, admittedly only about 4 times a year, I attempt to view my photos on the AppleTV. The new Photos app now lets me share all of the photos in my Lightroom catalog! Today was the first time I tried it, and it worked. The TV just pulled random photos from a 50,000+ photo collection. What a … Continue reading
The road dead ends at Milford Sound, New Zealand, which opens out to the Tasman Sea. The rough mountains drop straight down into the depths of Milford Sound. As a result, our small ship could go right up to the rock’s edge. Everything about this place feeds the soul.

The sun had disappeared behind the mountains casting long shadows … Continue reading

At first I thought the photos had to be HDR. So, … Continue reading
I must admit that the iPhone 6s+ camera has compelled me to leave the heavy camera equipment behind more and more often. The little device does some amazing things, things I literally never thought would be possible with such a tool. When I really need a quality shot, however, I still bring out the Canon glass, but the iPhone creates … Continue reading
