Are you a lover of the American River, or do you know someone who is? I wanted to give you a head’s up about a new project I am working on. It is a coffee table photo book on the American River titled “River of Gold.” The photo above will be the books cover photo. My goal is to have it available for purchase within the next week, just in time for Christmas!
I have been photographing the American River and all it’s beauty for about 24 years. Putting the photos into book form is something I have dreamed of doing for a long time! I finally decided to make that dream a reality.
If you would like to be notified when the book is released, please send me an email to: email@example.com and put “River of Gold” in the subject line. You can also leave a comment below.
Please feel to leave a comment, ask questions or send this link to those who you know that may be interested. Thank you in advance!
Have an awesome weekend!

Old Barn in Taylorsville, California after the makeover.
As I was looking for something to add to my Northeastern California Album this morning, I came across this photo of a barn I shot in Podunk Taylorsville, California. It was taken at noonish…the worst time of the day for photography in most cases. It had power lines in it, an ugly sky and was very close to getting tossed. Something told me to see if I could make a “keeper” out of it.
I made a virtual copy of the original file in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, converted it from color to antique and removed the power lines. From there, I took it into Photoshop CS3 and added the filter “poster edges.” The difference is amazing…it went from an “Ugly Duckling” into something that inspires me.

This is what the original image looked like straight out of the camera! Did you find this tutorial helpful?

"Abstract Aspens" along scenic Highway 395, Eastern Sierra, California.
A couple of weeks ago, my husband, our dog and I did a Eastern Sierra Road Trip. We had a long list of places to go and things to shoot for our stock photo files and fine art collection. As always, we didn’t make it to every place on the list, nor did we shoot everything we wanted to shoot. Here is one of the images we captured that has already been uploaded to our Website.
Abstract Aspens (as well as all of our other images) can be ordered as Prints, Greeting Cards or Personal Use Downloads. Before ordering, be sure to check out our Discount Coupon Specials.
I also teach Abstract Photo Workshops. If you would like to be notified of my upcoming Abstract Photo Workshops, I recommend signing up for our Photo Newsletter. I will be sending the November issue out soon!
