Back to LR & PS
Jun 19, 2020
After looking at this page after a long time I realized that I have never said anything about my journey with Luminar. It is a really interesting app and has a lot of really neat AI features in it, but it doesn’t work with the kind of photography that I’m doing at the moment. I’m currently in a phase where I’m doing a lot of Astro photography and it’s not as good as Lightroom and Photoshop for that. I keep going back to Lightroom and Photoshop and I think that’s the one I’m gonna stick with for now.

Processing in Luminar 3
Jan 19, 2019
I'm still trying to figure out what I am going to do here. I keep doing random things but what I need to do is come up with an objective and then I can focus on making it happen. In the mean time, here is some more randomness. This is a photo I took in Victoria BC at the Empress Hotel a high tea. I processed it in Luminar 3, which I just upgraded to recently.

I was on the top of our hill in our back yard yesterday right around sunset. I saw how the light was hitting the flowers, and I had to get a shot. I just had my iPhone, but the warmth still comes through.

I am really liking the Luminar app. I have to admit though that I never used Lightroom enough to get really proficient at it. If Luminar gets the digital management system they've been promising, I think it will be a real competitor to Adobe. Here is a photo I took in Kauai in 2015 that was dull and not very impressive. With Luminar I was able to make it more of what my eye was seeing.

Where is this going?

I added this section on Tutorials thinking that I could put something "out there" to help others. I haven't gotten organized enough to really make this section work yet, but I do really want to make this page worth looking at. I hope to get more organized in the near future and make this a regularly updated page. So, in other words, stay tuned.
Moving to Luminar
Jan 02, 2018
Well, my Adobe Lightroom subscription expired along with Photoshop. I am going to try Luminar, which I recently purchased for $59 for a perpetual license. Here is where I used it to clean up a photo I took in Maui while hiking. I added the sun (a filter in Luminar).

This is a test of the GPS data driving a Google map.
This image was taken in my back yard, but I changed the GPS coordinates to the house where I grew up in Michigan
