|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.|
|Julieanne Kost||A great source of with tutorials on Lightroom.|
|The Strobist Blog||David Hobby's blog and tutorials on lighting have really helped in how I light portraits and think about photography.|
|Joe McNally||Joe McNally's books, blog and YouTube videos on lighting have also really helped in how I light portraits and think about photography even though I will never have access to some of the tools he uses in his work.|
|Mac Performance Guide||This is the site I go to when looking for reviews of the now rare introductions of new Mac computers. I have used Lloyd Chambers ideas in setting up my own Macs especially the extra storage I now require.|
|Diglloyd||I also visit Lloyd Chambers photography website for his thoughts on new cameras and lenses.|
|Luminous Landscape Videos||These videos are a great value. I have both the Lightroom and Camera to Print series, and I refer back to them from time to time.|
|itSupplies.com||Where I buy almost all the ink for my printers and some of the paper. They also offer generic color profiles and a custom profiling service.|
|Shades of Paper||Another great source of paper and source of information as well|
|Red River Paper||I use their Ultra Pro Satin for a lot of my general prints, and I occasionally use their Auroa paper for matte surfaced prints. I use their stock for most of my note and larger 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. I also use their boxes for my card sets.|
|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.|
This is the ap that I use on my phone and iPad to keep track of moon rise and moon set times, angles and elevations for planing my moon photos.
It's a lot easier than using the compass and the Naval Observatory data that used to guide me.
This is another ap that I use on my phone and iPad to keep track of moon rise and moon set times, moon or sun angles and elevations, and the timing of blue and golden hours.
I think that the PhotoPills Augmented Reality feature is easier to use than TPE's, so I am using PhotoPills in the field more than TPE, while TPE remains my favorite for planning shots.
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.
|Art and Frame of Falls Church||Tom Gittens of Art and Frame is a great source of custom framing work, and Tom gets the majority of my business these days. Remember to ask Tom for a discount when you take in one of my prints for a custom framing job.|
|Design Frames||Mark Klostermyer at Design Frames has done a lot of custom framing work for me using some hardwood frame stock that Art & Frame doesn't normally carry. Remember to ask Mark for a discount when you take in one of my prints for a custom framing job.|
|Ace Photo||The folks at Ace Photo have done a fantastic job with rejuvenating the Dominion Photo store on West Broad Street. Their prices match Amazon, B&H Photo and other online retailers, and they are very well stocked in most things that I need.|
|Falls Church Arts||A local arts group in which I participate.|
|Other Web Sites|
|The Mount Washington Observatory||Great pictures in their photo gallery, and great views, when it's not in whiteout, from and of the summit of Mount Washington in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.|
