It was a dark and stormy morning

Foggy Morning at the University (2c)

It’s been said that the best camera is the one you have with you — heck it’s even the title of a book on iPhone photography.

Which makes sense, because you can easily stumble across a nifty scene, as I did here, and not be able to capture it if you don’t have a camera with you.

True, the scene didn’t exactly look like that. I did enhance the dramatic using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2, to pretty good effect, I think.

But back to the point, carrying a camera with you will enable you to catch these unexpected scenes, and then take them back to your digital darkroom and explore the artistic possibilities.

Alberta Winter on the Desktop

Winter Waskahegan Desktop - 2007Happy New Year. I’ve been having more fun with Photoshop and with my new Wacom Bamboo drawing tablet, and decided to share the fruits of my labour.

Here’s a new 1280 x 865 wintery-themed image, taken one frosty morning out on the trail near the Waskahegan trail at the Cooking Lake-Blackfoot Recreation Area, just east of Edmonton.
