A Fellow Photographer

I am a fan of Marc Weinstein’s photography and wanted to share information on his upcoming exhibit, entitled “disambiguation” at the Teatown Lake Reservation. I’ve also added a photograph from his “Gaudí Blue” series – stunning images that were inspired by the light and color of Barcelona and the forms of Antoni Gaudí.

Marc is also the president of Graphics by Color Group, a Hawthorne, New York-based company that provides printing, graphics and many other services to the photography and advertising community (http://www.colorgroup.com).  They’ve printed some of my larger images and the quality and customer service are top-notch.










Digital Noise – A Solution

Have you ever seen digital noise in your images – those tiny specs of white or color that look like fine snow or the grain in film-based photography?  It’s pretty common, especially in night photography at high ISO values.  Common or not, it can ruin an image, unless that’s the look you are going for of course.

One of the best solutions for this is a product from Topaz Labs, called DeNoise.  It’s super flexible and very easy to use. I use it quite a bit and find it indispensable for certain types of images.  Click this link to find out more about DeNoise, with some before and after examples.  And while you are on the site, look at their other products for improving color and black and white images.
