While on our trip to Cape Breton, we went to Port Hood in hopes of getting a good sunset image. We had great success, getting a nice long exposure of the waves washing over the rocks as the sun kissed the horizon, as well as the image below. It was cool,…

Photographers Take Note!

I know many of us prefer not to watermark images, and there is a cost (in time and money) to register a copyright, but this story provides a strong incentive to do either or both!
The following is my account of the most infuriating, frustrating and insulting photo usage theft I’ve dealt with. After attempting to resolve it with lette

Before publishing this post I kept asking myself why the world needs yet another set of instructions on organizing your photos with Lightroom. After all, there are many excellent sources for the information elsewhere. Ultimately, I decided to publish this…

Earlier today I saw that Adobe's Slate is now available for web, and decided to try it. A bit later saw that +Scott Kelby had posted some phenomenal images on it. 

I gave it a try with shots from our recent visit to Cape Breton Island. See what you think.
