Hands-On Review of Photoshop Elements 13 and a Giveaway!

This week, I got my hands on a copy of the latest version of Photoshop Elements: PS13 which released on September 24th.  As you might now, I started out editing photos exclusively with Elements.  As such, I’m always excited when I get my hands on the latest copy.  And, like last year when Photoshop Elements 12 came out, I’ve got a bit of a giveaway on the site!

My Iceland Photo Story

Over the past couple years, I think it’s safe to say that my photography skills have improved. Obviously, I’ve still got a long way to go, and I’ll likely never be completely happy with my work; I don’t think any artist really is. Part of my personal process for improvement is to always set up certain tasks or challenges in which I can hopefully use to further my skills. A couple years ago I took a photo each...

Getting the Shot in Bern, Switzerland

As a travel photographer, going through some of your old work is a bit painful at times.  Like any trade, art, or skill, with photography, you’re always improving.  It often means that looking back, well you find some gems some times, you also find images that you were once proud of and now think are rubbish.  For me, my disappointments have long revolved around an evening shooting in Bern, Switzerland about 3 years ago.  I...
