StarFest - Denver Science Fiction Convention

Just got around to culling my images from a Science Fiction convention I went to a couple weeks ago.  StarFest Denver it was called.  I managed to swing a press pass.  Unfortunately the so called press pass, provided no more access than any attendee had.  The press agreement also restricted photos [click link to read more...]

Lightroom Tip - Match Exposure Feature

There is a little known tool in Adobe Lightroom that for some reason they have chosen to hide away as a menu item.  It has no tool or pallet on display in the develop module (hence why most people never know it exists).  This tool is the "match total exposure" command, and it is a very powerful ...
