Processing……

I’ve been thinking about how to write about my trip and post different pictures that I made. What I’ve found is putting together my favorite  images into a gallery doesn’t really allow me to delve into some of the different animal behaviors or to illustrate my thoughts about what I saw and experienced. So, I’ve decided to do things a little bit differently……

I spent last night copying over all of my images to my home desktop machine where I can work on large 30″ monitors and evaluate/edit the images more carefully. It’s just getting light here in San Francisco (even if I have been up for several hours) and  I still haven’t made it to the market to get some fresh food but am going to head out shortly before I get to work with the images.

More soon!

RAW Support

Capture One added RAW support for my camera today. Yippeee! (still no Adobe support) I had taken this shot in Chinatown and I decided to give the RAW file a try with the new software version. Thank goodness there is support now as this was to be one of my main cameras for Kenya and shooting RAW + jpeg is just a waste of space and slows the camera down a bit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speaking of Kenya my friend and I are now foster parents to MUMBUSHI a two month old orphaned elephant. He was found by a farmer wandering alone. Elephants are very family oriented and need their mother for feeding for two years.  His parents were most likely killed by poachers. Sallie Jo and I will visit him at the orphanage on our free day in Nairobi. My own pictures to follow in about a month.

Editing the Galleries

Just to get the site started and work out they layout, I set up a few galleries  and dropped some of my files in. But now comes the hard part. Self editing – deciding what should stay on my hard drive vs. what makes up a cohesive grouping for the web. Too few in a gallery and it seems incomplete. Too many and it is hard for the view to wade through to find the best shots. It’s going to take some time to get it all together but there should be some progress each day. It’s also a lot of fun to revisit my images from the past few years and think about the time and place.

A little bit of shooting this morning down in Gilroy…..it got very hot, very early. This shot feels more fall than summer…..Was there subconscious wishful thinking when I was deciding to make the picture?
