Monday, March 30th, 2009 Posted in People, Workflow | 2 Comments »

Have my new Mac...finally. The two biggest surprises were 1) how fast this thing runs not only with respect to applications but also to start up and 2) how easy it was to get use to and be productive. There ...

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009 Posted in Workflow | No Comments »

You gotta give this guy some credit. I wonder if he took 45,000 or actually used 45,000 photos. Regardless, the time and patience to do this is pretty amazing, and he did it using not-so-hard to find tools.  A Macbook Pro, Final ...

Or I should say...they don't. At least they don't do it very well. I went to Sams to get an 11x14 and three 8x10's in sepia. One was actually an antique conversion but it was close enough to sepia that ...
