I both pleased and honored to announce that Shadow and Fog The Dreamer, one of the prints from the Shadow and Fog series has passed through the jury process for the Figureworks 2014 juried Art Show. This is the third time a print from that series has met with some success in Ottawa’s local art scene.

The show will be on display at Saint Brigid’s Centre for the Arts from November 18th through to December 1st, 2014.

Figureworks is a not-for-profit organization promoting art of the human form local Ottawa art show dedicated to presenting the human form in art.

Judging by the submissions I saw at the jury drop off,  the competition was tough so I would like to thank the jury for selecting my piece.

Stop by Saint Brigid’s on November 18th between 6:00 and 10:00 for the vernissage.

I look forward to seeing you all there.

CamRanger for wireless Tethering

After a few incidents during workshops with my tethering cable, including an accident that cost me $400.00 in lens repair I decided that it was in my wallet’s best interest to invest in a wireless tethering system. The native Canon WiFi grip runs at about $800.00 so I thought I’d try out this little device (considering it’s half the price of the Canon grip).

 

There are a few reviews out there that are worth reading, so I’ll not duplicate their work here. However, most of the reviewers that I found were using the product on the Mac platform, where I use the Windows platform and some were using the most up to date imaging software where I am still a bit behind on that mark.

My primary use for the CamRanger is for displaying images during workshops, and I found that the free app’s preview window was a bit too small for that purposes, so I started looking around for ways to get the full screen preview I wanted.

There are more than a few blog entries on setting up the CamRanger to work with Lightroom and Photoshop elements, but I use Photoshop CS5 and Bridge. This older version of Bridge does not have folder monitoring so the real time refresh for image previewing is not available.

It took a bit to find the right viewer for to serve my purposes, but a small freeware image view called Previewer that found from the EyeFI Forum  fit the bill and the budget.

Overall, there is so much more functionality and uses for the CamRanger (including remote camera operation while in Live View, multiple client screening and image sharing) than what my current needs are,   I’m looking forward to using it for my workshops.
