For some reason, I rarely post photos from the shoot with Julie Simone. But while I was playing with Lightroom, I came across this one and decided to mess around with it a little bit. As it turns out, I didn’t do much other than sharpening, but I liked it enough to post it. Enjoy!
It seems like every time I get a new photography toy of some sort, I become reacquainted with many of my old photos. I was home from work today, so I imported a lot of my photos (over 6,000) into my Adobe Lightroom library on my laptop. In the process, I rediscovered some oldies but goodies, like this one of Suzana. Enjoy!
Well, I’m really on a tear here. Adobe Lightroom has me excited.
If you don’t have it, get it (for $199 until April). It doesn’t really do much more than Adobe Bridge + Adobe RAW, but it sure is a lot easier and cooler to use.

Heather took this one when we visited the Japanese Garden in Van Nuys last year. That’s me and my Contax G1.
I really like photos of people using cameras, even when I’m the subject.

Once again I was playing with my film scanner. After scanning a particular negative, I realized that I had previously scanned the print on my flatbed scanner, and I thought it would be interesting to compare them.
So here are the two different scans:
The one on the left was scanned with a MicroTek ScanMaker 4900 flatbed scanner. It was scanned a long time ago, so I don’t remember the particulars other than that.
The one on the right was scanned with a Minolta DiMAGE Scan Dual IV film scanner. 3200 dpi, 16 bits. I had to quite a bit of dust cleanup on it, and I reduced its size to roughly the same as the print scan.
I didn’t do a particular great job of scanning on either one of them, but which do you think looks better? Any preference?
Brian posted a photo from our little photo excursion at CSUH/CSUEB/whatever over on his blog, so I’ll share some of mine as well.

I like to take pictures of my feet in the places that I visit.Is it just me?I hope there are entire sites dedicated to it.
