Jay’s End

Even in death the refracted blue light of the Blue Jays’ feahers is still there. I was inspired by some old photographs seen at the Photography Show at Pier 94 yesterday.

I used Lightroom, Photoshop, OnOne, and some brushwork in Corel Painter with the Emergence Brush System for Corel Painter

Six Select

I dug through my folders while house bound and came up with these six plant photographs I would like to show.

In case anyone finds this useful. My filing system for my over 100,000 images starts with folders named by location (USA, World, People, etc.) with sub folders by year. Inside the year folders are dated folders: YYYMMDD and subject. Inside those folders are folders called RAW, TIF, JPG, PSD – as needed. This folder structure works well in Lightroom as I can select by type of file easily. I use file names starting with YYYMMDD subject, and number. I also find files easily searching the added meta data of location and details on the subject. Using the date first in a file name means that files will will sort chronologically  in any computer system or app.
