This is exciting stuff. No more carrying around a bundle of papers and magazines, no more carrying around a backpack of school books for students. It will all be in one slim tablet.  With the ability to watch videos about the story you are reading , click a another tab and be linked to a web page is just how all this information is literally at our finger tips now (pun intended).

In just two days, Apple is unveiling it’s tablet to the world!

Here’s a link to a video from ABC reporting on the new device.


As a photographer / videographer, this opens the doors for some very creative use of the two mediums to offer to clients.

Stay tuned for some upcoming samples of this kind of work. I feel like a kid in a candy store with all the possibilities that lie ahead!

Okay, I know this kind of looks like an ad for Adobe, well it is really, although, the content is really interesting.

Watch this video on how the Adobe line of products were vital in the making of Avatar. I guess I’m a little hyped  on this right now since I just bought  Adobe’s CS4 Production Premium bundle yesterday. I’m in the process of doing some 3d imaging with still images in After Effects.

It’s really great how we can use the same tools as the big movie studios to create our own art.

Stand by for some upcoming posts on these tests.

You know one of the best things about being a photographer is just the every day observance. You never know where your next picture may come from. Coming back from a great New Years weekend up in Napa Valley, California, I had to stop and find a truck stop to fill up my tires on my motor home. I came across this man who was the attendant at this old truck stop off I-5. I could not help myself to ask him if I could take a couple of pictures of him. I loved the light quality coming in the garage, the colors of his turban with his shirt and the long gray beard. Come on, you can’t pass that up!
He didn’t have the correct air hose adapter I needed, but that was okay, because I got this shot of him.

As this is my first post in 2010, I hope the new year brings many more hidden photos for me. I love to find these surprises.
