Every Click Counts via Scott Bourne

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Photography is a sacred and important thing. The pictures we make may be the last we take of any given subject. Tomorrow isn’t promised to any of us. We all owe a death. Both the photographer and the photographer’s subject will pass on. It just makes sense that we should do our very best to make every photo count. There are NO insignificant photographs – period. None. They all matter. They’re all important one way or another.

Glamour Shot: Another Look

Fashion photographers use photoediting to enhance certain images, create a mood, or add artistic effects to imagery. In this particular image I want to enhance the reflection in the model’s retro sunglasses, drawing attention to this particular detail while making everything else secondary. The method that works the best for me (there are many ways to do this) was to edit in Lightroom, then Photoshop, and then open it up in Lightroom again. Using this workflow I got some amazing results. Image editing takes patience, skill, and lot of time…I tell my non photo friends “being a photographer is not easy!” I like this result even more than the black and white treatment I’d used previously.

cool glamour

Steve Jobs 1955-2011

This post is a little tribute to one of my favorite inspirational characters, Steve Jobs, Amen!

We all lost a world-class visionary yesterday, we could never thank you enough. You changed the way we use the web, listen to music, design stuff and the way we live. Definitely, one of the most innovative thinkers the world has ever seen.

You made my life so much easier, prettier and fun, thanks to your innovative spirit, you left an incredible legacy. A genius, a risk-taker, and above all, an inspiration.. Rest in peace boss.

Glamour: One Image Three Ways

With image editing you can create different looks. In this glamour shot I liked the color image but I suspected it may look even better in black and white. Image editing produced three different looks: color, black and white, and black and white with a vignette.
