New Work

Iceland, July 2010
Well today is Sunday andmy first chance to look back and process a few older images in some new and improved versions of third party software - all while watching the Jets-Green Bay game....

The image on top was from my first day in Iceland last summer. I re-processed using the new NIK HDR Pro software and a bit of Photoshop CS5. The location was an industrial site near Reykjavik - the water is actually a fairly close match to the actual color.

The one below is from Zion last March. This was processed to as an HDR in the new Photomatix 4 upgrade. Photomatix has a new interface which allows the user to see several different processed versions of the image in order to pick and choose a starting off point.

Zion National Park
Although a bit confusing at first I am starting to enjoy both of these versions for HDR processing -

Saturday - Indiana

Portree, Isle of Skye, Scotland - IP4
Driving up to Carmel, Indiana today to start the framing process for the November show. Never quite understood how much time and energy goes into putting together a show of one's work. Printing all the images on paper is quite different from simply posting images on a blog. All the images look so different on paper and you get to stare at them incessantly until you have to put them out of sight for a few days to clear your head. For one thing the detail is much more prominent when holding a sheet of paper in your hand. At any rate I have passed that threshold and look forward to agonizing over the framing...

Today I post one more image from the Novemebr show and one from the Speaking Clock Revue.

John Mellencamp-Andy York-Speaking Clock
Was working the Speaking Clock Revue at the Beacon the other night. Was able to manage a few images in between the work. The show was Leon Russell and Elton John (featuring the new record they made together), John Mellencamp, Jeff Bridges, Elvis Costello, Secret Sisters, Karen Elson and so much more. The show was produced by T Bone Burnett.....

Santa Monica Pier - IP4

OK, finally back to posting on the blog after almost a month. I have been working on several projects including the America's Got Talent Live Tour, my website, and most importantly, printing my first show of IPhone images. The IPhone imagery show, 'Allusions of Reality', is at the Renaissance Fine Art and Design Gallery in Indianapolis, Indiana on November 18th (opening reception 6-8PM).
