Ped Xing Exit [Photo]

Description: My favorite images are the ones I take and think to myself, this looks interesting in theory, but I don’t think I’ll end up processing or publishing it.  Then I get home and look through them and I get a nice surprise.  This was one of those shots.  The yellow of the exit sign […]

Would You Believe? [Photo]

Description: Believe it or not, I only took one exposure of this shot.  When I saw the scene, I was intrigued, however, I couldn’t really get the angle I was looking for (so I thought).  All the cars in the road were in the frame every which way I turned the camera and for some […]

Exporting Keyword Tags and Synonyms with Lightroom 2.0

Adobe’s Lightroom software has completely changed the way I process and maintain my photographic library.  Since being introduced to Lightroom 1.4, I have only used Photoshop two or three times to make a few minor touches I just couldn’t do with Lightroom.  And now, since installing Lightroom 2.0, I have yet to use Photoshop for […]

The Eigth Floor [Photo]

After walking nearly a mile into a mostly deserted area, past bio-hazard signs and other keep out, restricted area signs, we finally reached our destination. In order to get into the building, we had to “build” a ladder in order to […]

Till Death Parts Us [Photo]

Description: I met up with Jeremy Brooks and Thomas Hawk for an evening shoot on Treasure Island.  The building was completely abandoned and boarded up.  There was plenty of evidence that people had been in and out of this building over the years, but while we were there, we did not run into anyone.  As […]

Is Selling Content the Future of the Blogosphere?

I just read a post Chris Brogan wrote titled “Selling Blog Content the Clean Way” in response to the way GigaOm Briefings is being run.  At the end of the article, Chris states, “How hard is it to make a post, and then make a LOT MORE for someone to buy and continue the experience? […]

Together We Move Forward [Photo]

Description: Taken at an engagement session I did a few months ago at the Wilhelmina Garden in San Francisco.  While processing this picture in LightRoom (as I do all my pictures), I attempted to create an antique, aged feeling by muting the colors without losing the underlying concepts of “new” and “beginning” by adding contrast […]

Jim – BW$P

I recently started the Black and White Dollar Portrait (BW$P) Project. The gist is, I will offer anyone who asks me for money $1 in exchange for their portrait. Every portrait I take will be converted and processed in black and white. This project is a spin off of Thomas Hawk’s $2 Portrait Project. Meet […]

Calling Readers, Subcribers and Everyone Else

City Lights Bookstore #003 [Photo]

Description: The City Lights Bookstore is one of the few remaining fully independent bookstores in the nation.  It was also the nation’s first all-paperback bookstore and has been declared a “Literary Landmark.”  As I walked by the bookstore during this Monday night photowalk, I realized, over the past 8+ years of living in San Francisco, […]
