SmugMug Sharpening Tools

I've used Smugmug for 2 years now and they do a pretty good job with their site. The one thing that's always really gotten to me is image display sharpness. You can turn on sharpening within their interface but it's just not that great if your the kinda person that uploads full size images for printing purposes. I used to be in this boat, but no longer.

Over this past weekend I got around to uploading my entire portfolio in web sharpened 900 pixel max width resolution in lieu of full size SmugMug sharpened images as I had before. I'm really happy with the final results.

None the less if you wanna check out the results.

+Athena Carey I like them for everything but printing. But I don't have any issues fulfilling print orders on my own, plus my entire website links in through Smugmug so I don't see myself leaving. It's annoying, but I don't really see any better options:( The customer service seems to be getting worse about answering questions as well. Hopefully they don't start to act like a large scale company in those regards.

What Dreams Become - Crater Lake, Oregon
Read the full blog post  including a new star photography tutorial I wrote for +PetaPixel

The Shot
My buddy +Paul Weeks  and I drove from Seattle last Friday night and arrived at Crater Lake around 3AM. This gave us just enough time to snowshoe out for some predawn and sunrise shots. The next day we ended up hiking a few more miles and camping on on the top of the Watchman Lookout which gives a full view of the lake from above. This time of year at Crater Lake is amazing as there are hardly any people up there. Here is a twilight shot I got on the very first morning.

My latest upload to 500PX from Xingping China.

The rain was pouring in Xingping China as we boarded a small raft and headed upstream into the still dark and very foggy river. A few hours before dawn the rain still wasn't letting up so we decided to shoot anyway. 

If you look closely you can see the rain drops passing in front of the fisherman's lamp. 
Shooting at 14mm , f/2.8 and ISO 2500 my setup was just fast enough ( 1/30th ) to capture this low light scene with the drops falling through mid air. This effect was something I really wanted to show in the picture because I think it gives it a lot more personality. 

These kinda shots never really get much play on 500PX with an overwhelming assortment of naked girls and massivly saturated landscapes. None the less this photo is still one of my favs. Hope you like it as well. 

Comments, suggestions, thoughts always welcome...

Thanks for stopping by, I'll leave you with a few of my favorite quotes and some other inspirational photographers I like:)


Quotes I Live By

"Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride" - Hunter S. Thompson

"Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free." - Jim Morrison

"Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life." - Jack Kerouac

"All of life is a foreign country." - Jack Kerouac

"The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude." - Aldous Huxley

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes." -Marcel Proust

“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow chinks of his cavern.” - William Blake

“Maybe there is no Heaven. Or maybe this is all pure gibberish—a product of the demented imagination of a lazy drunken hillbilly with a heart full of hate who has found a way to live out where the real winds blow—to sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whisky, and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind except falling in love and not getting arrested . . . Res ipsa loquitur. Let the good times roll.” - Hunter S. Thompson

Bragging rights
Allowing society to cripple your creativity with pre-defined awards ( bragging rights ) and place an established value on the beauty you create is giving away your path to the stars, to your dreams, and most of all your path to create something new, something beautiful, something that can not be defined by words, actions or ideas that the human mind has yet conceived. -Me ( Dave Morrow )
