I bike more than I drive around the area, but it’s making for some stale photos. I think I need to branch out more.
I probably couldn’t have asked for a better birthday miracle than Lightroom coming to mobile platforms. I spent about an hour just playing with different cell photos from my Galaxy to see how the port holds up to its big brother. Most of the functionality is intact. Trying to cram a full Adobe program’s functionality into such a small screen means that the interface isn’t as streamlined as something like Snapseed, but I’m willing to sacrifice accessibility for depth. I’ll keep playing with the program, but I’m confident I’ll be getting plenty of use out of it.
For the new year, I’m starting to play with the structure of the site. One such change will be having specific releases for certain days. Friday will be the day that I use to post galleries of photos I’ve shot on the go that wouldn’t justify a post by themselves. I figure that it is an easy post to do while I prep for larger weekend shoots which go up Saturday-Monday.
After such a fantastic experience last month, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the November mixer at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The theme for this month was a fashion show, and the designs were spectacular.
With a new house, comes a new neighborhood. I spent a morning just wandering around with my camera. We’re only about 75 yards from a lake, which which I hope has some great potential for future shoots. In the morning, fog rises from the water, and it makes for some interesting silhouette effects. I’m going to keep a close eye on the lake to see what else it has to offer.
Wedding prep and work has been keeping me busy, so I’ve got no small backlog of things that I need to post. These photos here are from a family trip to my ancestral home of Bentleyville, Pennsylvania. Both of my grandparents on my mother’s side grew up there and many of my grandmother’s family still lives. The area is absolutely beautiful with its sprawling hills and miles of woods. I do regret accidentally leaving my 24-70mm in my other bag with my 70-300m attached to my camera body, making wide shots difficult. I think I was able to make due with my 50mm.
