Two Thousand and Ten

Well, its nearly the end of twenty-ten!  Be hopeful of what the next year will bring, and appreciative of what the passed year brought.  I had a great year.  Like many of the others, there were lots of challenges, adventures, traveling, and most importantly - progression.

Warning: Long post ahead for the year in review!

Focus Stacking

I feel like it is pretty self explanatory. If it isn't, well this post is for you. Its an explanation and some of my first examples.
So focus stacking, is as it sounds. Multiple images stacked, or merged, to form one with a greater range of focus than any individual image's range of focus. It is similar to HDR in the way that it compensates for limitations in equipment to show something that is not normally possible.

[unfortunately I broke a lot of links to images on my blog, and have lost these ones in particular, despite having been able to find almost all the other broken blog's images. Maybe a new focus stacking demo coming soon! November 2012]

Ideals in Food Photography

I feel lucky to be a part of the Restaurant/Food Service Industry. You meet a lot of very interesting people, get to work in fast paced environments, and in some places, feel like your going into battle for a busy Friday night.

Great Photography Reads

I often times have people surprised to hear that I never went through any photography classes or courses. Not only did I experiment relentlessly with my camera, but I also read a whole lot. From books to blogs, and everything in between, I would like to share with you some of my favorite reading material..
