Dear Readers: Two Quick Things

Hi there. We have a question for you. You probably noticed that we recently switched to a three column theme. We had some hypothetical reasons for wanting to check it out. Now we’d like to know what you think. Do you prefer the new look or the old one-column approach? Can you briefly tell us why?

Also, we know you’re following because every time someone posts a new shot we see all the likes. We appreciate that, too. And since most of us here are working to improve our craft, in some cases for nefarious commercial ends, we’re especially interested in hearing what you like and what you don’t like – and again, why. Honest feedback helps us get better at what we do, so don’t worry about hurting our feelings. In other words, we’d love to hear from you in the comments .

Many thanks – we’re glad you’re here.

Space Needle: Polaroid

As I improve and learn new things I sometimes come back to shots to reprocess and see if I can do better with my new knowledge in hand. I’m revisiting this one, taken last month, for a couple reasons. First, a friend here really liked a process I used on another shot, and second, I got a tutorial this morning from our boy Greg Stene that I thought might help me fix something about the original take. So here we go.
