Photo Tuesday (to take your mind off taxes)

Since I devoted Monday’s post to the Photography and Photoshop Blogroll report for Jason D. Moore, my other announcement got shifted back a day, so this week things will be a tad more compressed. I’ll try not to bore you with excessive links and heavy-handed material where you have to read a lot. That means – it’s Photo Tuesday! (The tutorial will be released Wednesday…since there’s no “Wednesday Web Gems” for the theme.) Besides, since it is a blog that I am pretty much writing single-handedly, I can change things up if I want, right? 🙂

So…for Photo Tuesday I thought I’d announce that I have a new gallery of photos put together on my dedicated photo site. The site portal is here: and the latest gallery addition is here. Please take a moment to stop over and then share your thoughts with me here (or via email) on the shots. Too many? Not enough? Layout? Treatment? Etc.? I’ve collected these images over the past 3-4 years and finally have enough (I think) for a dedicated gallery of wildlife. As a teaser, here’s a few thumbnails…all taken from my Canon XT and processed through Adobe Lightroom 2.0 (Beta)




As a final reminder, it is tax day here in the U.S., so if you haven’t done your taxes yet, today’s your last chance to get them in legally.  If you’re a last minute kind of person, this is pretty much it!  Well, that’s it for Tuesday – happy shooting and watch those apertures! 😉

    Hey Jason. Love the photos – especially the birds! Great composition and sharpness. What lens did you shoot a lot of the birds with?

    Also, I like the gallery. That particular one is my favorite of all the flash galleries that come directly with Lightroom. It is simple, elegant and best of all, it resizes for different screen resolutions.

    Thanks for another great post,

    Thanks for stopping in to take a peak Brian. I shot these with either the 70-200 or my 70mm Macro with a 1.5 extender on it. I’d like a fast wide angle (I think this was mentioned in a post a while back…) but have yet to garner the coin for it.

    Slideshow works nicely; length is great.

    Great shots; super clarity. I particularly am impressed with the eagle photographs.

    Thanks Andy – that would be the work of the 70-200L at about 70mm (I ended up much closer than I had thought I would be so had to actually take a few paces back just to get their heads in the frame).

    Another thought I had on galleries was – *gasp* – music! Long considered a cardinal sin for quality web design, I am seeing more and more sites using music to accent a presentation. Any thoughts here?
