In Uncategorized by David

I’ve never been accused of dragging my feet. After the initial comments on the last post, and a few emails suggesting I just give it a try (it’s always people like that that aren’t the ones that have to do the work! – I decided to do just that. So, while it’s only a beta and I’m sure I’ve neglected …

Conceeding Defeat

In Uncategorized by David5 Comments

I don’t like doing this but I’m waving the white flag. The jet lag has officially handed my butt to me, on a platter. I’m wiped and my brain has checked out for the day. I’ve been up since some unholy hour but just barely coasting through meetings and I’ve got a series of important ones tomorrow that I’d love …

Ron Carroll shooting the 7am call to puja at Thiksey Gompa. After the Srinagar valley exploded in strife a couple months ago Matt Brandon and I made the difficult decision to re-plan the trip and we went to Ladakh instead. The two places, Srinagar and Leh, are in Jammu and Kashmir state, but couldn’t be more different. Still,  we had …

This is my friend and former student Nicole Gibson. I shot this as she leaned out of the window on our houseboat in  Srinagar, Kashmir, India, last summer on our Lumen Dei tour. Only days before we’d been at the Jama Masjid in Old Delhi and she shot this image. (Oops, Matt Brandon tells me it was at Shah Hamadan …

Scott Kelby asked me to do a guest spot over on the Photoshop Insider today, so mosey on over there for your fix of daily pixelatedimage goodness. If you’ve come here from Scott’s blog – Welcome. Scott’s a How-To guy, and I tend to preach the Why-To sermons. But I sneak in the odd how-to article or something about gear, …

I’ll spare you the usual reminder to back up your harddrives (but when’s the last time you did it?) and I’m not going to hound you to calibrate your monitor.
