Today I needed some steam for an image in an ad that was due at 5pm.
Fortunately, I remembered my match lighting experiments.
A little adjustment in Photoshop and this shot
made some great steam.
This brings up an interesting point though. One of the most
important things you realize quickly when working as a photographer
is the need for organization. If you can't find the image you know you have somewhere
you can't sell it very easily.
I figure I have taken 10,000 photos in the
last year. 8,700 of them on my new digital camera. Other than that I have
enough slides to fill up quite a few file boxes and drawers.
The ones I have scanned take up 110 DVDs.
I do OK in the digital world with my strange little organizational systems,
but it's time for some better tools.
Personally, I am still looking for the right software to do the job.
I've tried a couple demos that were not inspiring enough to make me part
with my money.
Perhaps a new Mac with Apple's
interesting tools would do the trick! I wonder if Santa is feeling
particularly generous this year? :-D
