Real Estate Photos – Post-processing and the “fun house” look…

Wide angle lenses are the stock and trade of a real estate photographer.  They are necessary to capture an entire room and they go places no point-and-shoot can.  But one thing that happens when you put even a point-and-shoot on wide angle is a thing called barrel distortion. It creates […]

Tundra – Trying to “help me” shovel snow….

I know, I’ve had a lot of photos of huskies in the snow – and now here’s another one.  Sorry, but they are just too easy a subject matter to resist.  Tundra was trying to get to me through a gate where I was trying to multitask by taking photos […]
