Prints on display: Wild in North Seattle

Only recently have I become aware of the range of wildlife that lives in and migrates through pockets of nature that exist just a short walk from many of our homes. Images of local wild birds are the subject of Wild in North Seattle, an exhibition of my photographs at Herkimer Coffee in Seattle, USA. See herons, eagles, and more. All of the photographs were taken within 5 miles of the venue. You can view this show until December 30, 2018.

Four images from my travels were invited to be part of The Photographer’s Eye, a group invitational photography show.

Creating a Panorama: CreativePro.com article

You can merge multiple images into a panorama in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Camera Raw (which comes with Photoshop), and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. But don’t assume they create panoramas the same way. In fact they work differently, but those differences give you more ways to resolve potential panorama issues.

How do you choose which method to use? I answer that question in an article for CreativePro.com, which you can read at the following link:

The Unexpected Rebirth of Adobe DNG: CreativePro.com article

The Adobe Digital Negative (DNG) format started out as an open file format for saving raw image data from the sensor in a digital camera. While DNG hasn’t exactly become a household name, I recently began to notice that DNG has come into wider use behind the scenes in several Adobe and non-Adobe photo workflows, and not just for camera raw files. What makes this possible is the inherent versatility that Adobe built into the DNG format. Are you already using DNG without even knowing it?
