Christmas idea – Invite your friends and family to Passport Sunday!

Hey guys, this is a little self-serving for sure, but it is also you-serving! I find that finding good Christmas presents is Very Difficult! I want to give something unique, and never sure what to give. Anyway, why not give the weekly present of the Stuck In Customs Passport?? It’s a fun thing for anyone who is either creative, into photography, or maybe just curious. Today is Passport Sunday, where I release a new video every week… It’s a fun gift because every week, your family member or friend will be reminded of how much you love them! 🙂

And here is the image I created in today’s video… quite a bit of Photoshop gymnastics was required but that’s all part of the fun!

Eliminating Window Glare

Here’s a rather tough edit from an older photo from Chicago where I had quite a bit of glare on the window. That’s perhaps the best part of the lesson, and I clean that up pretty quickly. Most of the end of the video is about me trying to correct the buildings to make them look more upright. That was sort of a bear!

Daily Photo – Bridge Views in Tianjin

Tianjin is kind of an interesting city and kind of a strange city, like most Chinese cities it reminds me of some kind of parallel universe where people use some of the same rules as Western cities and also do some incredibly random stuff. It’s clear the Chinese have a different aesthetic to city living than Westerners. I’m not saying it’s good or bad; it’s just different. Anyway, Tianjin is one of the first Chinese cities I’ve visited that has a ton of bridges crisscrossing the river. Here’s one of the best views from the most centrally located bridge.

Daily Photo – Ending the Chicago Photo Walk!

Wow… I’ve been to Chicago many times, but never even seen this amazing fountain! How is that possible? I don’t know… but I was really happy to be here this evening… what a perfect day and night in Chicago. And so many passionate photographers! We gotta do that again!
