For those who are interested, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is probably the best editing suite I've tried lately. It's fantastic.

Save yourself a few $ towards a new lens or something and download it.

If you really want to know, look in the Fractalius

I came across a new plugin for Photoshop that adds some absolutely fantastic treatment to photos.
Fractalius is a pretty cool effect that, when used on the right photo, can produce some fairly artistic results. I gave it a try recently and was decently happy with my first few results...

Black and White - Classic

I've been wanting to shoot some B+W lately.
More specifically, I've wanted to shoot some B+W images of my son.
More specifically still, I've wanted to shoot some B+W images of my son splashing around in puddles in his rubber boots.

He's growing up so fast, soon it won't be "cool" for him to put on his boots and run around in the puddles.

We've had 5 solid days of rain here and the other night before Robbie's bedtime I finally got my window of opportunity to shoot a series of shots. Over 180 images shot in the lane way beside our house and I could not be happier with the way things turned out...

There's always room for The Blues

Scored a couple of tickets to the Thunder Bay Blues Fest last night and checked out Robert Cray, a very soulful and mellow blues man who, in my opinion, is highly under rated.
Managed a few shots just after the sun set and I lost my precious late evening light.
