Final Postcards from Italy

In News & Stuff, Postcards From..., Travel by David19 Comments

A few final photographs from my recent trip to Italy (I posted others last weekend). The image above is one of my favourites, and still makes me chuckle.

Postcards from Italy

In Postcards From..., Travel by David18 Comments

Ciao! I rolled in from Italy a couple hours ago, set my photographs to begin the export process from my laptop to my iMac, unpacked, stocked the fridge and walked out for some much needed sushi. So good to be back home in Vancouver. No matter how often I go away, coming home is sweeter each time. Now I’m crashing …

Dave Delnea’s LR Develop Presets

In Craft & Vision, Lightroom & Workflow, The Craft by corwin11 Comments

One of the best ways for me personally to learn Lightroom is with Develop Presets. As a starting point for adopting a new aesthetic and learning the mechanics under the hood, presets suit my learning style better than almost anything. Apply the preset, dig through the changes, make some tweaks. I learn something every time. They’re also a killer way …

Since You Asked

In Rants and Sermons, Travel by David48 Comments

Once in a while the subject of taking beautiful photographs of beautiful people gets complicated by the inevitable discussion of money. Specifically, “Should you pay people for a photograph?” Or more personally, “Do I pay people for a photograph?” I’ve given various answers to this over the years. It’s not a simple question with a simple answer. And I won’t …
