I like the almost-daily updates. You mentioned a while back there would be a DVD of your HDR processing. Is that still coming. I have slow dial-up, so I can’t take your on-line class. Happy Thanksgiving.
I’ve been told that the DVDs should be coming within the next week… but the provider of those DVDs have delayed their delivery twice already, so I doubt that date is set in stone. I’ll post on the blog when they are available… sorry for the wait.
yea same here, enjoy the updates, which must be kind of a pain to do. so thanks.
also….you know….i like the photos as plain ol’ photos. like the old rusty car (grill) post a couple of days ago. it’s really an interesting photo – without the processing.
i noticed the same thing teaching high school photogs. often times i have to “reign” ’em in when it comes to photoshopping. “um, what was it before you photoshopped it”
I don’t care what photos look like before Photoshopping… I care what I can create from the raw material my camera delivers. A photograph cannot capture what I was feeling or how my brain interpreted a scene… that’s what Photoshop can help me deliver. I’ll still post “straight photos” every once and a while, but I find many of them to be boring and just begging for some interpretation in Photoshop.
