Growing Up without Borders Interview
Here’s a fun interview I did a few days ago! 🙂 Enjoy 🙂
Daily Photo – Thailand Deep into the Night
I rarely take long exposure shots in these tropical places at night, but, when I do, I’m always surprised! It looks a little weird, right? Like it could be daytime but with really strange lighting? I think that’s what I like about long exposure night photography… in that everything comes out a bit surprising!

Daily Photo – Floating over Krabi
Here is a recent processing of a single RAW file I took over Krabi. I never get tired of looking at these pleasant archipelagos out there drifting across the ocean. I’ve thought about spending more time in Thailand, actually… one thing is for sure… you are always guaranteed a good sunset!
Critique Show #3
Here’s yet another critique show for ya! 🙂 I actually am not sure if we’ll keep these going or not, as they take quite a bit of time to create and edit. But, hey, you never know… it’s a good experiment!
Daily Photo – A Midnight Stroll in Krabi
This is the entrance to the Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Krabi. How beautiful is this place? I actually did yoga in that place a few times… It was a perfect and serene place to practice. I would also take strolls around here at night, always with my camera in tow.
Drone Photo from Thailand
Below is one of the very first photos I got from a drone in Thailand. I would love to go back and do these again with my Mavic 2! It has this feature I think is pretty awesome where it will zoom into 48mm and take a series of 9 shots that you can then stitch together into something very high-rez.
Daily Photo – Boat Adventure in Thailand
Yesterday’s photo featured a sunset from this exact same place! The next morning I woke up and headed over to the beach where this cool boat was waiting to take me on a little adventure! We did some island-hopping and I took my drone with me to get some photos. It’s always a hair-raising experience to launch and land drones on a boat, and this was no different. There were definitely some high anxiety moments!
Check out my Kit!
I’m always making updates to my kit.com that includes everything from my favorite books to my recommended camera gear to my crazy gadgets. Of course, sharing this goes against my minimalist, non-consumer inner drives. I don’t really have a lot of stuff, but, for the stuff I have, I choose stuff that adds to my life and does not subtract from it.
Adobe Bridge How To
We received a nice email from a Passport Member asking about Adobe Bridge and how I use it. I realized I had never made a video about that before, so this was the perfect opportunity. In this video, I also share a little bit about my workflow. Enjoy!
Daily Photo – Sunset in Krabi
Here’s another crazy sunset I saw while in Krabi, Thailand at the Ritz-Carlton Reserve. To be totally honest, I felt like a very lazy photographer when I was there. It was just too easy to waltz out of my room, get my bare feet in the sand, and then set up to take a photo. Here’s a fun word for you… Crepescular. That kind of light that is shooting out from the clouds is called “crepuscular” light. I don’t really know why that is interesting other than me enjoying the texture of that word.
What makes Aurora HDR 2019 stand out?
Check out this quick video which shows how Aurora HDR 2019 improves on previous versions and how it compares to the competition. Like what you see? Then grab it over here.
Logisitics for Spain
I’m getting close to my 100km trek across Spain with Kevin Kelly on the Camino. That trip takes a lot of logistics as well… nothing is easy… plus, coming from New Zealand adds a whole new layer of complexity which usually adds two days onto the entire trip.
Daily Photo – The Aurora in Thailand?
No no, I’m afraid there was no Aurora in Thailand, but it sure does look like it, doesn’t it? This is just off the coast of Phulay Bay where there is some kind of mining/shipping operation going on. I don’t think of it as an eyesore… I think it’s kind of pretty! The glows would change all night too. I believe some of the glowing was from boats out fishing in the night as well.
Adobe Rant about Lightroom Presets
Well I was just about to blow a gasket, but I took some deep breaths and decided to many a mini-rant video instead. I was in the middle of making some new presets (grab them now in the presets area of my store), and I was completely perplexed and bamboozled by the way Adobe deals with presets. Are these bugs or am I just really dumb?
Daily Photo – Midnight Walk in Thailand
When I stayed at Phulay Bay in Krabi, I spent almost every night skulking around the resort and taking photos. The architecture around here is so interesting and beautiful that you really can’t take a bad photo anywhere. So I made a little game every night where I would take 100 photos and always try to improve on getting fresh angles and composing objects in different ways. This night was particularly good because the moon came out to play with the clouds.
