Is this what you're doing now? Hitting the keys? Well, in honor of the Escape month (and big thanks to Flickr), I'd like to spotlight my pal Joe Rossell who is one hell of a photographer (and he knows all the keyboard shortcuts for Photoshop, including the most obscure ones like how to paste in a bitmap into a mask layer in less than 2 keystrokes). For awhile, I just had prints and paintings on my wall--and the minute I hung a few of Joe's photos in my hallway, guests zinged straight to it. (For the record, this photo gets the most comments. It's in my foyer now.)
And while Joe documents his various snowboarding and cross-country trips to the hilt, what I really REALLY love about his photos is his ability to make even the most boring landscapes look like it's either incredibly serene...or about to explode. Joe also keeps high-res versions of his photos, so getting them printed up, enlarged, and framed is painless.
So, stave off the work drudgery, and check him out here.
