I recently held a 15 minute webinar on how to make a layer mask in Photoshop. It’s amazing how quickly 15 minutes passes. Here is the recording:
I was struck with how beautiful this sidewalk salt was last night as I was walking to my car. It’s little details like this that really stop me in my tracks.

I’ve been working on a term project on how to hit the reset button on your career, and start over fresh. I have collected a bunch of quotes, that I’ve found inspirational over the years, and applied them to some of my photography. Feel free to download them, and use them in your own materials, if they resonate with you. -Cheers!
Murphy and I enjoyed a beautiful snowy walk this morning.
My life is so much fuller with my golden retriever Murphy. If you’re looking for a great organization to volunteer for, check out Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies (GRRR). Murphy wasn’t a rescue, but our next will be. We volunteer there at least once a month, walking the pups. http://www.goldenrescue.com/
I love the way the early morning light is shining through my butterfly wind chimes. Trying to keep my thoughts on the bright side.
Found this heart shaped leaf on our walk yesterday.
Beautiful Autumn leaves from my afternoon walk today.

Many people struggle with setting their white balance to be accurate in their photography. Using a black, white and gray card is a super quick, easy and inexpensive way of making sure your colors turn out accurately. This is a no brainer, for anyone who uses Photoshop, and shoots professional photography.
Here is a link to show you the process: http://digital-photography-school.com/get-your-white-balance-right-in-seconds-using-grey-card/
Here is a link to an inexpensive black, white and gray card for purchase: https://amzn.com/B012TI52FS
As a general summary: Shoot the cards in the scene with your subject, then shoot without the cards as you normally would. When you are in Photoshop, add a levels adjustment layer, set the black white and gray eyedroppers to those colored cards in your photo. Voila!
