2018 Fall Portrait Season

It is that time of the year.  Fall portrait season is almost here.  Book early to ensure you have a spot.  It rains so make sure you have time to make up any outdoor session.

Fall is by far the most popular portrait season.  Here is a link to help you with picking the perfect location, time of day and clothes to wear.  If you have any question please feel free to contact myself.

I don’t charge for designing holiday cards with any portrait session.  All you pay for is the printing cost.

Day at the Beach

I spent a day at Assateague Island and Ocean City, Maryland taking candid family photographs.   Here are a few from the trip.  Candid photography is a great way to remember a trip or moment.  They capture raw emotion verses a posed look.  Hope you enjoy these images.  It was a great time and I even got a chance to fish in the ocean.  Thanks to all who were involved.

Brush Smoothing in Adobe Photohsop CC

How to use the new brush smoothing in Adobe Photoshop CC.  Smoothing does not make your line smoother but helps you draw a smoother line.  This functions is really geared towards drawing rather than photographic adjustments.  Personally, it is a function that I will never use for the most part.  Anyway if you would like to learn how to use the 4 basic functions of smoothing watch my short tutorial.  You can see on the thumbnail image to the left how wiggly the line are I drew with my mouse.  The lines on the right I drew exactly the same way but with smoothing on.  Hope you enjoy
