The Medium Is The Message

Marshall McLuhan said that, and it may be one of the few things I remember about him from my Marketing classes. And, I’ll be honest, outside of it being a catchy phrase, I’m not entirely sure it applies to this post.  But, I suppose, in a way, it does. Take a look around you and […]

Essential Photoshop Skills for Photographers

I’m not entirely sure I agree with this list, actually. I tend to follow the dictum that, as photographers, we should strive to make a better photograph in the camera, not in the computer. However, the reality of the modern age is that Photoshop exists and, well, the people who use it will tend to […]

Pioneer One – Crowdfunded Sci-Fi

I love science-fiction. I love sci-fi in pretty much all its forms, but I have to admit, I especially like science-fiction television and movies.  And, these days, as Hollywood produces more and more of the same stuff over and over, unwilling to take risks, I find myself loving sci-fi television more. Now, with cameras and […]
