I went with a friend to Photo Expo in NYC last Thursday and was reminded that there are CONSTANT innovations in photography. The nice part was that some of the vendors were willing to explain things or tell us where to find additional help. It was fun watching experts demonstrate how to use the Wacom tablet and to see how the pros utilize the newest HDR techniques. I purchased some paper samples and plug-ins that should help me to enhance my photos. The best part of the day was bright and early as we stood on the train platform and saw a magnificent vision as the fog sat on the Hudson River and the sun shone on the boats and the fall colors. Naturally I didn't have a camera with me. But, I woke up early Friday morning hoping to get a second chance at capturing that beautiful site. Naturally, Friday was overcast and gray. Definitely not the same conditions as Thursday. Still, I had fun hiking along the waterfront and trying to see what I could still glean from the cold, bleak day.
