I'm glad to say I took something away from the #lgm2014 . I was there only on the Saturday, but I did make it to +Patrick David's excellent workshop.

My friend +Alan Graham wanted a Promo-Picture with his Duesenberg 12 string, which I took on Tuesday. Like me, he's not a big fan of overdone skin retouching, especially when it comes to his own pictures, but we agreed that the neck needed a little work in this shot. So I decided to give Pat's method of using the Wavelet Decompose plugin for GIMP for skin retouching, which he demonstrated at the workshop, a try. I was already pretty impressed when I watched the demonstration, but doing this for myself on one of my own pictures made it even more amazing.

Pat has a tutorial on his website, too: http://blog.patdavid.net/2011/12/getting-around-in-gimp-skin-retouching.html

All I can say is, thank you very, very much, because it's gonna make my life as a portrait photographer a lot easier :) And it's just another proof that, as users of open source graphics software, we don't need to hide.

Boy, did we get lucky with the weather. Would have been a bummer if it had been raining like hell the first time I get to Berlin.
Unfortunately, editing pictures is no fun on my netbook, even with slim XFCE installed. Gotta wait till I get home to do some real work.
At least this hotel is offering some free internet, unlike the one in Leipzig last night where they wanted 10 € for 24 hour access. They also wanted 12 € to use the parking garage. Paid for neither.

This could be such a lovely spot, if you didn't get all the noise from the quarry below :(

BLOG: regarding confidence, compassion, and bullies

Last year, at Denver Comicon, I answered a question from a young woman who was having a hard time at school, because kids were being cruel to her. She asked me if I was ever called a “nerd” when I was in school, and how I handled it. Here’s my answer:…

Introduction
I hate writing about myself, but I'll try anyway.

I'm a photographer by profession, but I'm also a guitar player & singer... still working on getting better every day :)

I'm a bookworm. What kind of books? Well, a while back we had a visitor from the U.S., and he looked at my bookshelf and asked: "Are any of those books Science Fiction or Fantasy?" I asked him, "What do you mean, 'any'??" The same is true for my taste in movies and TV shows.

I like computers, but mostly as an "advanced user" — I ditched Windows in 2005 in favor of Linux, on which I'm doing all the system administration. My skills in Google-Fu are helpful with that :)

I'm also into web designing, although more for fun than anything else. My largest project is www.alangraham.de, but I also designed my two blogs and www.daniel-fernholz.de .

Politically, I'm a die-hard liberal.
