How I edited the Picture of the Week using the Adobe Lightroom mobile app

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Picture of the Week. I shot a little video of how I took the shot and then how I edited it in Adobe’s Lightroom mobile app. There’s some new functionality in the Lightroom app which allows you to edit RAW images, which is wonderful for people like me who like editing and posting on the go. It requires (at least for my iPhone) an SD card adapter, which you can buy from Apple.

This will be mainly for you photographers who like utilizing your own workflow instead of using Instagram or Facebook filters, but hopefully you appreciate the demo either way!

Picture of the Week: The Traveling Man Sculpture in Dallas

Picture of the Week: The Traveling Man Sculpture in Dallas

Hello everyone! I was just out in Deep Ellum, just east of downtown Dallas, Texas, taking this picture. Deep Ellum is an arts district that has recently undergone a nice revitalization but has maintained its gritty roots. In Deep Ellum you’ll find great restaurants, concert venues, and wonderful art installations and graffiti walls. Two statues buttress the entrance to Deep Ellum when heading south on Good Latimer Expressway. These status are of the same character: the Traveling Man. The DART train runs down the middle of Good Latimer Expressway and the Traveling Man relaxes across the street from the tracks, playing his guitar and waiting for his train.

I’ve always meant to take a picture of the Traveling Man and finally made time to do it tonight. As part of shooting the picture I also came up with a challenge: edit the Picture of the Week entirely on my iPhone using Adobe Lightroom Mobile’s new RAW editing capabilities. Without getting too lost in the weeds, this enables me to edit RAW images to the level of quality I would normally only achieve when back home or at the hotel with the full Adobe Lightroom version on my various Macs. In fact, I put together a little video about the challenge, so stay tuned for that!

Anyway, here it is, Deep Ellum’s Traveling Man! (click through for the picture!)

My Chase Sapphire Reserve is Here!

My Chase Sapphire Reserve is Here!

Well I made the decision to get the new Chase Sapphire Reserve card. I’ll go into why in a separate post, but the friendly UPS guy delivered it to the house just a little while ago. Like with most things, I couldn’t help but do a little photoshoot of it. Click through for my first impressions!

Picture of the Week: Qantas A380 Landing

Picture of the Week: Qantas A380 Landing

I love the Airbus A380. They are absolutely massive jets that are quiet, comfortable, and are the absolute pinnacle of aircraft engineering in my opinion. Now, to be fair, my opinion of the aircraft is probably juuuuust a bit biased since I’ve flown on them five times and each time has been in First Class 🙂

Anyway, I was out at DFW doing some planespotting a few weeks ago and managed to position myself perfectly to capture the Qantas A380 landing from one of the longest flights in the world. I hope you enjoy it, click through for the picture!

Picture of the Week: Half Marathon!

So this post won’t have too much to do with the Travel part of Andy’s Travel Blog, more about Andy.  I ran a half marathon today!  My time was gross and my body wants to explode all over the place, but I finished it! This’ll be a quick post, but just wanted to show off my shiny new medal, hope you had a great weekend!

My Most Epic Sunset Picture

My Most Epic Sunset Picture

So in my last article, about my day at Zion National Park, I posted quite a few pictures. I left one out. I left it out because it’s one of my favorite pictures I’ve ever taken and I thought it deserved its own post. You can learn all you want about photography but there are certain times where you just get flat out lucky.
