It's been a little while since I've been able to post a blog. I've been busy shooting and editing, but not blogging.
Since my last time on here, I have been trying out some new software; ACDSee. It's a photo editing software that attempts to compete with Photoshop. It is a pretty user friendly piece of software that allows you to edit and customize pictures, batch process, etc. So far, I like it. There are things that it does better than Photoshop and vice versa.
Next, I went down to San Antonio to take some engagement pictures of a friend of mine and her fiance. This was my second big shoot. I was a little nervous at first, but not long into it, everything just seemed to fall into place. I just finished processing them and narrowing down the 5star selections. The CD is burning now and I should be able to get them in the mail Monday. It was a lot of fun.
The next day, Sunday, I of course I had my sunrise photo shoot. I wanted to do something iconic, so I went downtown to the Alamo and set up. I haven't had a chance to work on those pictures, but I imagine they will turn out nicely. I also learned that a quarter in a parking meter in San Antonio buys you an hour, whereas it only gets you 20 minutes in Dallas...... Not as much bang for your buck. lol
Next, I had to break down and buy a new computer. My laptop is almost 4 years old and just can't handle the demands of processing my pictures. The RAM wasn't large enough to handle the speed needed for Photoshop and for some reason, the computer doesn't see the CD drive anymore. I wasn't able to figure that one out. In addition, I had filled up the hard drive. It was time.
That's what's been going on in my life recently. I'll get back on here soon with some more pictures.
Until next time...
