Newsweek Article on Dean Kamen

by on May.23, 2009, under Photography

I’ve just finished reading a very good article on Dean Kamen in the newly redesigned Newsweek. It talks at length about the FIRST Robotics Competition and Dean’s goal of instilling passion for science and technology in today’s high school students. It’s well worth a read and I would add a link here but, unfortunately, the story isn’t on Newsweek’s site as far as I can tell. Look for the cover with the photo of President Obama and you’ll find the story inside.

Here’s a photo I took during a 10 minute session as a papparazo at the FRC competition in San Diego earlier this year. The local press coordinator didn’t have a photographer handy when Dean made an appearance so she grabbed me and put me to work. You can find other photos I took during the regional events in Cleveland and San Diego here or in my previous posts here and here.

Must-have plugin for Photoshop

by on May.23, 2009, under Photography

If you are a landscape or architectural photographer who finds themselves having to touch out wires strung in front of your subjects, you should immediately head over to the Wire Worm site and download this amazing, free plug-in for Photoshop. It makes removal of nasty electric cables and phone wires extemely easy. The site also has a couple of tutorial showing how to use the filter and it’s well worth watching these before you start playing.

Thanks for Armonds at a.b.c photography for his tip about this tool.
