San Gabriel mountains

I shot this image of San Gabriel mountains from a Cessna 182 a few years ago, Shot it and forgot about it .
Sometime I return from a trip and just don’t have the time to handle all the images that are not work related, I try to do it, but now and then Some images escape me.

San Gabriel mountains

I revisited this image 2 days ago, and decided to develop it again.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 allows me more control than I had in earlier versions, It felt more organic now, a little more like how I would treat the image in the chemical dark room.
So from being obscured, this image is now one of my favorite images.
You can get prints and greeting cards of this image here.

Buying Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 through the link below will help me maintain this website

“Captain James T. kirk” about the future of flash

Will Apple reconsider introducing flash to their “i” devices? personally, I don’t believe so. my questions are, what should those who want the option to have flash on their portable devices do? What will developers do? will flash go away?

Photoshop is not evil

I get annoyed when people see a picture of a pretty girl and automatically say: “eh, it’s all Photoshoped”, as if Photoshop is the long version of a four letter word, I say, thanks to Photoshop we can give the client a brilliant result without having to dip ourselves in chemicals under red lights (I do admit that the smell of a developer makes me a bit nostalgic still, but it’s because i don’t have to spend time with it anymore). Here is an image manipulation job I received from a Las Vegas client, where the shot she sent me looked nice but needed “something..”. on the right, is the before image. first, I cropped it just a bit to get Katie to be more dominant in the frame, the rest was mainly some perfecting of stubborn hair and a very careful dodge and burn process that is similar but a bit  more precise than what I would be able to do in the dark room.

In my view

I’ve contemplated on writing a blog for a while now, the reasons are many, I may discuss them in later posts. this blog will mainly follow my photography and other things I’m involved or interested in. Please don’t hesitate to ask me any photography, Lightroom or Photoshop related questions you may have, your thoughts and comments are welcome.
