Information Resources
Luminous Landscape My primary site to follow advances in the digital darkroom especially with respect to papers and printers. This is also a fantastic site for photographic techniques as well as thoughts on photography.
Photoshop News A great source of information about tools and techniques for the digital darkroom and what is happening with Photoshop and Lightroom.
PixelGenius Another great source of information about tools and techniques for the digital darkroom. Their sharpening toolkit is a great addition to the tools I like to have at my disposal.
The Russell Brown Show A funny and helpful site for advanced Photoshop techniques.
Eric Chan's Epson 3800 pages A very informed site for using the Epson 3800.
Luminous Landscape Videos These videos are a great value. I have both the Lightroom and Camera to Print series, and I refer back to Camera to Print, and LightRoom 2.0 series on a regular basis.
Supplies
Atlex.com Where I buy almost all the ink for my printers and quite a lot of the paper
Shades of Paper Another great source of paper and source of information as well
InkJet Art A good source of paper, especially sample packs, and generic color profiles and a custom profiling service.
Red River Paper I use their 60lb Premium Matte for most of my cards. I am trying out their new glossy card stock, but it doesn't come in the 8.5 x 11 size I currently use for greeting cards. Red River is also a good source for boxes for the cards.
Clear Bags The best source I've found for protective envelopes that I use on loose and matted prints as well as for my individual note and greeting cards.
Picture Frames Destination A really good source for high quality framing components when I do the framing myself instead of relying upon Design Frames or Art & Frame here in Falls Church.
Argonaut Displays I've purchased my card spinners from them.
Graphic Display Systems I purchased my portable display racks from them. The system makes it easy to set up multiple configurations based upon the available space.
Tools
PixelGenius' PhotKit Sharpener Their sharpening toolkit is a great addition to the tools I like to have at my disposal.
While LightRoom 2.3 includes a lot of the PixelGenius functionality, it's still nice to have those tools available in Photoshop when I need to do the heavy lifting.
Noise Ninja PictureCode's Noise Ninja plugin is a great tool for bringing acceptable images out of pictures taken at high ISO, such as during indoor swim meets.
LR/Transporter Timothy Armes' LR/Transporter is the tool I use to export picture meta-data from Lightroom into a form that I can load into this web site's database.
I have also played around with his LR/Enfuse and LR/Morgify plug-ins, but don't use them as an everyday part of my toolset.
Local Resources
Stifel and Capra I have a selection of framed and unframed prints in addition to my note and greeting cards at Theresa Stifel's shop at the corner of Little Falls and Broad Streets in Falls Church.
Design Frames Mark Klostermyer at Design Frames has done a lot of custom framing work for me including many of the framed prints available for purchase. Remember to ask Mark for a discount when you take in one of my prints for a custom framing job.
Art and Frame of Falls Church Tom Gittens of Art and Frame is another fine source of custom framing work.
Falls Church Arts A local arts group in which I participate.
