    Looking for photo booth in Chicago

    I am in need of a photobooth (the kind you put your money in and get the 4 picture strip out, just so were all on the same page) for a project I have coming up. I know that there are some in bars, but I need one somewhere else. Does Navy Pier have one? Possibly one down near Millennium Park...

    photoshop RAW importing questions

    Just a few random things I have noticed that puzzled me. when I load my RAW files to photoshop, the info at the bottom tells me that I shot a 2000x3000 image, but at 8 bit. I know I can switch it to 16 bit, but if it is shot in only 8 bit, whats the point of switching? Also, when I used...

    my B&W view on landscapes

    You have done some great post processing to these. The tones are excellent. I also use that channel technique, and it is one of the easiest ways to get great results. I know there are better ways, but this is surely the quickest.
