In The Sun

Working on some new videos

I’ve been working hard on a bunch of new videos to share soon. The editing is the part that takes the most time! I have a plan (half-baked) to get an assistant here to help me edit together these videos so that I might better be able to share more stuff with you… little behind-the-scenes… more screen-casting, and this sort of thing. I edit so many photos per week… I’d like to capture more of it to share. I’ll get on this…

Daily Photo – In The Sun

I was working on some photos from Argentina (one from yesterday you might have noticed, and this was in the batch. Most of my Argentina shots were of rugged landscapes… so I thought maybe you might something a little less rugged here… :)

The Cool Fresh Water

In the Store

Some of you may have noticed that we dropped a few new camera straps into the store! I just got done shooting with them here in NZ for the past several weeks and I can vouch for them! One of them in particular (the higher-end one) is actually super-cool because you can have the strap over your shoulder and it slides OR attach to your tripod without needing it to be unattached! So, the sliding attachments are where the regular strap normally goes, which opens up the bottom for your tripod bracket.

Store Feedback

The store is almost out of beta, and it’s been interesting to watch how everything is working. It’s a totally new system. Our previous system kinda sucked — sorry about that. I felt like it used to be quite sloppy and the UI was a mess. The cart was confusing and so was checkout. But now everything feels quite smooth! And we are seeing lots of people put a lot of different things into the basket. For example, sometimes people buy a some Lightroom Presets AND the Photomatix Presets. Anyway, if you have any feedback, please let me know – I’m curious! :)

Daily Photo – The Cool Fresh Water

This is maybe some of the freshest water I’ve ever had! It was so icy cold, it was like a blast of frigid freshness into my mouth… I got in the habit of not filling up my water bottle until I visited this glacial lake… I was here for about three days… just relaxing, taking photos, and camping… it was very nice!

Crossing Rivers in the Andes

Part 2 of the Fox News bit in Central Park

Here’s the second part of my day with Clayton Morris in Central Park… enjoy!

Trail along the Andes

I’ve heard of a wonderful trail that goes along and through the Andes. Do you know what it is called? This might be an interesting hike some day… I’m not above hiring a few porters to help carry my stuff so I can just enjoy the walk with me and my camera.

Daily Photo – Crossing Rivers in the Andes

I worked my way back and forth across this river a few times on this evening. I was trying to figure out a way to get closer to the mountains in the distance. It was pretty much physically impossible without risking extreme danger to my body, which I’ve grown to like over the years. So I just remained in this area to take photos and explore the river with the mountains beyond…

Daily Photo – The River Wild

This is one of the rivers in Argentina that was uncrossable.

I really wanted to get to the other side because I knew there were some angles.  I hiked up and down both sides trying to see if there was some way to make it happen, but it was just impossible.  Oh well!  It was a pretty walk if nothing else…

Get it here!  We released the free version of the Android app.  It’s got all the same features as the paid one, just with 50-100 photos instead of hundreds and hundreds.  Enjoy!

Daily Photo – The Deep Blue Morning at Cerro Torre

I’d love to return to this place, but I’m afraid the weather would not be as clear and perfect.  Many locals told me there is a 90% chance that these mighty peaks would be covered with clouds, so I felt very lucky to have everything so perfect.  Surely, a return here would not be nearly as good…  but maybe… just maybe… a return would have clouds, but in an awesome dramatic way.

You probably also know I’m not a fan of plain blue skies.  But way up in the mountains, sometimes the sky on the opposite side of the sun is a deep atmospheric blue.  I see it from planes a lot when dawn breaks.  Maybe you have seen that color of blue too… and here it is again.
