Guest Blogging

I'm guest blogging today over at John Horn's Photoshop Actions blog.  I was kinda nervous about it, having never guest blogged before, and not knowing how simple or advanced to be.  I decided to go with simple but fun (I think!).  You can check it out here:  http://jhpactions.com/blog/ 

Be sure to check out John's Ps actions, too!  I've never been a big action fan, but John's make me sit up and take notice!  And definitely check out the top secret actions he'll be releasing this weekend.  I've been testing them and let me tell you...THEY ROCK!

Nicely done, John!

After Dark in New Orleans

We are firm believers in education and continuing education.  We make it a point to attend at least two workshops every year.  Here are some photos from one I attended last week in New Orleans.  I'm still editing!  More to come!

It's a Doggy Dog World - Pet Photography in Queen Creek, Mesa, Chandler, Tempe, San Tan Valley, Gilbert, Arizona

Have you ever watched that show, Modern Family?  I watched it for the first time last week; it was the Halloween episode.  One of the characters is a lady from Columbia and she often mistakes words in idiomatic phrases.  One of those is "It's a doggy dog world," instead of a "dog-eat-dog" world. 

I like her version better.  I'll bet Obi does, too.
