I’m rarely pleased with shots of myself these days…who is when you’re 40?! And although I’m gettin’ back into better shape (that always helps with portraits), I still look at images from my 20s and think that same ol’ thing, “hey, I was thin and wasn’t bad looking back then!”.
Last week, while on my way to a Seattle Mariner game at Safeco Field, I was walking through downtown Seattle with a friend who pointed out the tallest building in Washington. “It use to be the tallest building west of the Mississippi”, he stated. Moving close to the front facade, I pointed my wide-angle lens up toward the sky and captured this image- we were trying to make the first pitch of the ball game, so I didn’t spend much time trying to find out more about the location, however I knew I could license the image to a publication or two at a later time, or turn it over to my stock agency to do the same.
Finally jumping back into another PhotoGuru Podcast after being loaded down the past few months finishing a 65,000 word, 225-page book on Exposure. It is due out later this year, entitled “The BetterPhoto Guide to Exposure“, and published by Amphoto, a division of Watson-Guptill (now Random House)
The book is up on Amazon.com for pre-orders @:
My blog/podcast is a shortie but a goodie as far as Podcasts go, with updates on my travels, shoots, workshops, and more. I’ve also included two images tying into my podcast. The first is a screenshot of Adobe Bridge, part of Photoshop CS3 and a place to view image files before opening them.
