Show me what you got!

First things first – a few people sounded interested in playing along with the monthly themes I mentioned in the last entry, so I created a flickr group for them. So please, join in! The only rules for posting to the group is that you follow the monthly themes, and that the photo [...]


My 2010 Photography Projects

I’ve decided on three major photography projects for 2010. I think it’s important to post about what they are so that I can be held accountable.
Another 52 photowalks
f/8.0, 1/80 sec, 22mm, ISO 200
I debated this a lot. In 2008 I did a 366 project (leap year and all), so I attempted a second [...]


What I Learned Doing 52 Photowalks in One Year

Today I went on my last photowalk of 2009. Once a week, for 52 weeks in a row, I’ve left my house with my camera and taken photos. That was the only rule I gave myself for this project, too. I didn’t have to find other people to walk with (though I [...]

Weekend Links

As I warned, I’ve been making some changes around here – nothing too major, so hopefully nothing threw you off too much. When I started this website, I knew I was doing a lot of Bad Practices, but I was more interested in getting up and running and didn’t feel like fixing my mistakes, [...]


Smoothing Skin in Gimp

Hey look! I’m not breaking a promise! I told you I’d write later this week about how to smooth skin using the High Pass Filter – and I AM!
In the last entry, I talked about using either the Unsharp Mask or High Pass Filter to sharpen a photo, which is incredibly useful. [...]


Misc. Housekeeping

This photo has nothing to do with the entry – but I said Housekeeping in the title, and this door is in my house. Get it? Housekeeping? .. yeah, I shouldn’t write entries so late at night
No new tips or tricks for today, but I did want to update you on two [...]
