Getting Bit by the Muse

The muse has hit me hard. My creative itch is back. It’s time to get out there and to take some photos just for the fun of it.

Putting it down in writing just to cross it off

What’s on the To-Do list for tomorrow? A walk around parts of lovely ol’ Folsom to take some photos. The only thing that could stop me is this awesome on and off rain we’re getting in the Sacramento area. Let’s hope for a pretty cloudy day and not a downpour when I’m far away from the safety of cover.

If plans fall through, I will finally have my date with Lightroom. Time to update and to organize my setup. One of my goals for 2014 is to streamline my workflow. Organization will play a key factor in my process so it’s time to face the music.

Lightroom is an awesome tool and it’s about time I give it the attention it deserves. My favorite software at the moment: Lightroom and Photoshop. However, I have a feeling that Photomatix Pro will soon be added to this list.

For those of you who don’t know, Photomatix Pro is an HDR photography software that can help you create some awesome images when used properly (and not abused).

I have a feeling that my To-Do list will be getting longer. This should be fun. Fingers crossed.


Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated.
