Good Afternoon Everybody,
Before we kick things off with today's Technique Tuesday episode, I want to clarify a few things from yesterday's post. Of course, everyone wants to know which brand is best when it comes to blank DVD and CD media. I mentioned that I’ve used Taiyo Yuden for the last several years based on advice I got from our supplier, CD Dimensions.
The discs we purchase are rated for 100 years according to our tech rep. As mentioned yesterday, Taiyo Yuden and JVC have created a marketing partnership that will now sell the Taiyo Yuden brand under the JVC name [link].
Want to know which blank we purchase - here is the link showing the Taiyo Yuden/JVC blank DVDs over at CD Dimensions. CD Dimensions shows they are out of stock at this time, but that should only be temporary until the company's complete the brand transition and sell out of their current supply of Taiyo Yuden stock, which you can easily find right here.
Not on a budget and want the best, most long lived DVD and CD media available? Here is the link to the MAM-A Gold DVDs at $2.35 ea.
What about other brands out there? Here is a listing of brands from the best to not so good over at DigitalFAQ.com right here. Hey gang, that should give you a good place to start. As for me, I'm sticking with my trusted Taiyo Yuden brand, not JVC Professional.
And now on with Technique Tuesday.
Cabo Colors - Before and After
Last week I did a post entitled, "Cabo Colors Wednesday." The images were posted from our "photo walks" taken right in the neighborhood where we stayed. The subject matter of my images were from very simple surrounds.
In today's tutorial, I thought I'd walk you through my Lightroom process of creating excitingly colorful final images from rather mundane subject matter like a home, car port, and veranda. For me, it's all about color and Lightroom sure makes it easy for us to manipulate and enhance those colors. So today, let's take a walk through my Technicolor world of Cabo abstracts. Hit the PLAY button below and enjoy the show.
Hey everybody, that's it for me today. The day almost got away from me and I've got to get back to my real job. Have a good one and I'll see everybody tomorrow.
See ya' then, -David
