The trick to grabbing great shots in winter is finding the plants that open up gratefully on a warm day after a chilly set of mornings. These plants are moistured up and ready to release all their full tones for the birds and the bees, so to speak.

California cooking and cuisine and home design and architecture are hot image markets. Recipes and serving ideas, especially those with Mexican flair, are going to be featured. With the holidays coming up, turkey recipes and cookery will be hot. Tex-Mex burritos, turkey burritos with hot sauce, and chipotle turkey will be on the menu.
I am writing today to share some notes on some editing I have had to do on portrait photography. Often the pictures taken in a given photo shoot are merely fodder for later retouching.

Look at some of your plain or blank abstract pictures you think have no impact. Think about blending them. Either use paste at 20% or less density, or try to blend them horizontally or vertically. Two pictures send twice the message of one plain image, and the combined meaning can be unmistakeable. Composition can do this job sometimes, unless the items are so disparate they would never occur in “nature”.
