Iceland’s got fantastic eruptions going on right now.

With four active volcanoes ready to blow this could be the beginning of something much larger.

This prelude is dramatic enough.

The image above graphs Blurb’s ICC profile inside sRGB.

Graph Blurb’s new ICC profile and you’ll find something interesting. Blurb’s printers exceed SWOP (standard web offset presses) and they exceed sRGB in cool blues and yellows. What this means is you’ll get the most saturated color if you convert your Adobe RGB 1998 or ProPhoto RGB files into the Blurb color space rather than into sRGB. (Note you won’t get this is you convert sRGB files to the Blurb color space because you’ve permanently lost some saturation by going to sRGB first.)

Huntington Witherill speaks eloquently about photography addressing issues as diverse as technology, manipulation, and composition. His images alone are worth watching these for.

Here are some first pass image selects from my recent Death Valley workshop. They won’t all make the cut, so this may be the only time anyone will ever see some of them. I’m really excited about the material I collected for composites.

We had such great locations, weather, and participants that I scheduled my Death Valley February 18-21, 2011 workshop today.

Find out more about locations in the Death Valley map we’re building right now.

Photographing. It’s my favorite form of exercise. You walk, climb, squat, bend, reach, stretch and more – much more. You lose track of time and how far you’ve gone. You just keep going. You always want to go farther. It’s exhilarating! At the end of it all, you feel great and you return with something to show for it. I recommend it to everyone.
