New YouTube Channel

I have succumb to the idea of creating a YouTube channel with the purpose of sharing tips, tricks and techniques on photography, lightroom, and photoshop.  I noticed that when I try to find something online I end up wading through a lot of long articles, long videos, and unrelated content to find the answer to my simple question.  Example “How to copy and paste into the SAME layer in Photoshop?”

Well, my channel’s main purpose is to provide quick tips without any fluff.  You don’t get an intro, you don’t get crappy music, you don’t get me typing the answer, you don’t get a lot of stuff you don’t need… no filler!  Just the answer!

Please check it out.  I will be adding more content over time.  Its rough around the edges, I know, but comments and ideas would be helpful!

OK, I am a Star Wars geek, enough said!   I love seeing amazing photos using simple items that you might find around the house, even if the house is that of a Star Wars geek. These very cool photos fit the bill.  I am humbled and also inspired by these works from Vesa Lehtimaki (flickr Avanaut).
