For now, if you want to find out what I’m up to here’s where I’m at: https://www.facebook.com/davelbeckerman […]

Painted Infrared of Marine Terminal in NY

Now here I think I said it all in the title. The only thing you might wonder about is – what do I mean by “painted?” I have used NIK filters to add color to a black and white infrared photograph. I called the process Paintography – which might be too cute. But a great […]

Pano Software – Part 1

Don’t know if this is interesting or not – but since I had to put this one back together for a customer, thought I’d give an overview (and I do mean an overview) of how 96 raw images (20mm lens) were stitched together into one pretty damned big picture (96 inches wide @ 300 dpi) […]

Is There Photographic Truth?

Is There Photographic Truth?

Well, maybe that’s too large a subject for me. But photographs are often thought of as pieces of the truth. And I’m not even talking about photoshopping here. It seems that photographs are just as much about the photographer as the subject. At least often that is the case. So in this continuing saga, here […]

Couple at Met. (Narrated)

Figured out how to get sound so this one’s a talkie!  Not a lot of talk, but just trying to remember taking the one shot.  I tried not to show all the junk shots this time but just the ones immediately before and after the “good” shot. I’ve got the system setup now, so that […]

Lightroom Edit (Selecting) Cut 1

NOTE: These Lightroom photos are as is.  Just as they were imported. Here’s an example (maybe speeded up a little bit) of going through 199 photos taken on that snow day back in 2008.  I imagine this is about how I did it at the time.  What you may find interesting (esp. if you’re not […]

Street Photography – Taste of Snow Video

Posted on Aug 15, 2014 in The Photography

Beginning to experiment with idea of showing the lead up – the shots around the shot – when you do get something good. In other words, here are the bad shots that surround (usually) the good stuff. Just experimenting with the form right now. Trying to get the mike to record so I can do […]

How To Mat a Photograph Video

Yes – you’ve come to the right place. Three years ago I made a video about mounting prints – you know – those images on paper that we like to surround with a border to make the image pop more – and no I can’t do a video about using a mounting press because I […]

More Than the Rainbow

Posted on Aug 14, 2014 in Memoirs

People like this DVD. Just checked on Amazon and it says only 8 left, more on the way. And I’ve gotten a bunch of people contacting me with Facebook: You and Matt were great!  (That’s Matt Weber and the film is about him). Dave – I’ve watched the movie twice now.  Totally enjoying it. I’m […]
