Thanks! and more

Posted 09-18-2008 at 06:57 AM by cricket1961 (Chris Tarantino's Blog)

I got a email from someone yesterday from a good Samaritan ( are they called that on the web?) that was very helpful to me concerning dvd distribution and duplication.

Thanks Lasse whoever and wherever you are! Great to know that there are people like you out there!

I will have a new tutorial up in the next 2 weeks or so that will also have a video companion to go along with it. They will be about the same subject/technique of course. But with luck, it will also have...

DVD info

As most can tell I have not been around or available for a while now. Lots of reasons, both good and bad.

To get the bad out of the way, I am not a fan of potshots and things were getting a little heated in areas here. And as ironic as it is going to sound on this post, it has not been my intention to just lure people in an sell something. Kind of like the snake oil salesmen of yesterday. I care very much about my work and how it gets done and how it can get better. As a lot in the...

Photojojo, Horst on Flickr, & creating connections

Photojojo

has a twice-a-week newsletter aimed at sharing ideas for taking pictures. Today's idea looks at adding an object to a background that creates a connection between the two. Their example focuses on a photographer -- Horst (hb19 on Flickr) who "finds the perfect sky or set of clouds and gives them their object counterpart. The cloud shooting out from a bottle’s top. The sun’s perfect, shiny orb behind his ET-like finger. The fluffy ice-cream cloud on top of its cone....

My brother died last Sunday. (Aug. 31st, 2008)

His diagnosis of myeloma cancer had been a shock, although he and I knew his weight loss might be due to some form of cancer, but his downhill dive while in the hospital (pneumonia and other infections) surprised him and all of us. He was (only) 69, and we had relatives who lived well into their 80's; he had been a career military man - strong, active, and only slightly damaged during his tours; he certainly prided himself on his strength...

Timing is very important in photography. Getting up early, or waiting late in the day for a certain quality of light is common for photographers, as is waiting for the "right" moment in action sports photography, nature photography, and street photography.

I've been waiting for the "right" time to visit Utah's Arches National Park, but it seems that I missed my "moment"...
