This was the year for cool projects and here is another one. I was asked to make copies of pictures for one of my clients, they were really old pictures of her family… cool stuff. One was in perfect condition, one needed a little bit of photoshop, but the last one… the last one was in bad shape.

Head Shot Photographer, Enfield, CT

I travel quite a bit to take pictures for folks. Included in my bag of tricks is my portable green-screen (which is reversible, with blue on the back). This makes it easy for me to do head shots and not have to worry about carting around a ton of backdrops or worrying if someone is wearing blue (or green) and having them disappear when I use my green screen software to apply various backgrounds.   A very simple setup, with two lights off to each side of my subject(s).

When you get into multi-terabyte drives, backup can become a problem! Think about it, if you have 1, 2 or 3 Terabytes of data, you’ll need 1, 2 or 3 Terabytes of storage to backup that data. That brings me to my “Ultimate Data Storage Unit”: the Drobo. Data Robotics’ Drobo was just what the doctor ordered for me. I had finally had it with the myriad of external 250GB...

NewerTech Voyager Q Review

Posted in Photography Blog, Technology

Every now and then I come across an amazing product, and just need to share it. I saw this product in a catalog several months back and thought it would be a neat solution for creating bootable backups of my iMac, Macbook Pro and older Powerbook G4. Well, it took me a while, but I finally got around to ordering the theNewerTech Voyager Q Hard Drive Docking Solution (FireWire∆ 800/400/USB 2.0/eSATA SATA I/II ). As you can see from the picture (left), it accepts both SATA Desktop hard drives as well as SATA laptop hard drives. I like this because you can utilize existing hard drives...
