St. Louis Blues Wallpaper

I have created a new St. Louis Blues wallpaper for download. I created this wallpaper a year or 2 ago, but never got around to releasing it. Since tonight is the first game of the St. Louis Blues 2013-2014 season, I thought it was a perfect opportunity.

There are Mobile, Widescreen and Retina versions included. If you would like any other sizes, feel free to contact me.


Play Ball

I have created a new wallpaper for download. Since it is the middle of baseball season I thought it would be a good time to create a wallpaper to acknowledge the season. The wallpaper was, of course, created in Adobe Photoshop. I used a couple of textures and brushes for the nitty-gritty look as well as changing the Blend Modes and the Blend If sliders to blend it all together.



I have added the above image as a new wallpaper to the goodies page. The image was entirely in Photoshop except for the vertical lines. The lines were originally the gaps in between some planks of wood on a stock image and I tweaked the image to get just the lines.

Head on over to the goodies page to download a copy. Please feel free to let me know what you think or if you would like to see any other sizes available.

Breaking Benjamin – June 15, 2007

I have finally uploaded the pictures that I took at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater of the Breaking Benjamin concert to my gallery. I once again used a Canon 20D with a Canon 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM lens, but this time I used a Canon 50mm F1.4 on my Canon Rebel XT. Having the F1.4 allowed me to maintain a fast shutter speed, mostly 1/320s, while shooting at 800 ISO, compared to 1600 ISO on the F2.8 lens. I was unable to shoot from behind the barricade like last time, so I had to shoot from the pit, which was not easy. I had to really watch the equipment to protect it and also so I did not hit anyone with it.

Creative Suite CS3 – Release Date

Looks like Creative Suite CS3 will be released announced on March 27th. I have played with the Photoshop beta for awhile and the speed increase on my Intel Macbook is amazing. The only thing that was annoying was the bug where you could not see the brush outline. There is a workaround where you had to run CS3 in Rosetta, but the last time I checked a little while back it was fixed internally and would be in the final build. Now I am waiting to see what the different suite options will be.

Update: March 27th will be the announcement date with shipping date to follow at a later time. Darn.
