The actual picture looks better than this of course but it seems I will never be able to solve the firefox washed out photographs mystery, so I concede. Enjoy.


I suspect maybe, possibly, the color saturation and highlights being lost thing has something to do with my mac. And I just can’t post a picture here until this problem is solved because what appears on the blog will not be indicitave of the work I put into each photograph.

Should I just buy a new computer (remember my hard drive crashed so I’m essentially working off a blank shell of a computer)? A Dell? As far as I’m concerned every computer is going to explode within a year anyway, so I might as well just get a Dell full of amenities (big hard drive, tons of ram, etc) that will still be cheaper than the cheapest Macbook.  I miss the PC world, honestly. What would you do?

Take Two: Tree in Pink

I decided to have fun with the curves function.  The colors were too bland before, so I made it peenk!

Yes this is the PDF file

Hm. It looks a little dead here. It’s way more vibrant in Lightroom. I guess it’s because the poor darling photograph when through like 500 reincarnations– RAW to TIFF to PNG to JPG.  Well um I guess I’m semi-proud but the fruits of my 3 hour labor aren’t really apparent in this particular blog post.

Btw, my computer is angry with me and is playing the passive aggressive game. It’s obviously mad because I didn’t buy apple care for it. How do you get your HDR images onto the intarwebs? As soon as I open the JPG in firefox all the HDR qualities are gone; SO weird

I overexposed this one big time, but gotta say, I kind of like it

Cabin Fever

September 10, 2008

It’s difficult to find things to photograph in the house you’ve lived in for 20 years.  Here’s an antique I often overlook (and which is part of an unusually uncomfortable chair).  I didn’t photoshop it but on second thought I probably should have burned the edges
