I hope you all had a great weekend. I actually had a kind of cool experience. A college teammate of mine (I was bike racer in college) took me to the Broncos game on Sunday. Although it was freezing, we were able watch a record-setting 64 yard field goal. It’s always cool to see things like that in person. Anyway, this is a little behind the scenes shot from Dead Horse point in Moab, Utah. I say behind the scenes because that person you see is our production manager taking an iPhone Photo as we were walking back from a video we were filming. The video will be released in a few weeks so stay tuned. If you’d like, sign up for my newsletter and I’ll let you know the second it hits the streets. We have been hard at work on it, and it will be the start of something totally new. If you are looking to learn more about photography, the creative process and all that is involved….stay tuned!
Bear with me, this is going to be pretty photo-geeky stuff. I really don’t think there is anything wrong with shooting .jpg anymore. For years I have configured my cameras to shoot both .jpg and RAW. This image is a .jpg straight out of my Fuji X-E1. Sure, I still had the RAW for backup, but the fact I didn’t have to spend anytime processing this image means I might have more time for making photographs. In my book, that’s good thing!
Running up to the first of the year, the schedule here might be touch-n-go. I’m working hard on bringing a very cool learning experience to people who want to grow both photographically and creatively. I wanted to apologize in advance in case you miss a post or two. Thanks for understanding!
