One Man Show

I am very pleased to announce that I have been invited to show a collection of my printed images at the Wood Library in Canandaigua. I will feature approximately forty images that showcase a variety of the subjects I enjoy photographing including animals, travel, aviation and scenics from many of the places I have been privileged to visit.

The opening and reception for the exhibit is Thursday, September 3, 7-9 PM on the third floor of the Wood Library on Main St., Canandaigua, NY. The exhibit will run for the month of September.

As a visitor to my site you have seen many of the images that will be on display, but I encourage you to attend as most computer displays can not do justice to an image the way a large carefully made print can.

The reception will be informal of course, and you need not plan on staying the entire time, so I hope you can fit this into your busy schedules and I hope to see you there!

Paying the Piper

It is incomprehensible to me how fast time rushes by these days but I now have some time to write as my wrist heals from carpal tunnel surgery. The irony is that driving a computer all day, either for work or for my photography, is what finally aggravated the symptoms enough for me to do […]

Sending email from Adobe LightRoom

I made some pretty radical changes to my digital darkroom last fall. I bought my first Mac (Pro) and I switched to Adobe LightRoom from ACDsee Pro. Either of these changes could fill several posts but this one will focus on what was a major annoyance to me in LightRoom… the apparent lack of a […]

Follow up to Photographers Path 12 Exhibit

These are the final stats for the show. Out of 326 images which were submitted, 200 made the final gallery. Harbor Dawn scored a 55 tying for second in judging (first place scored 56.5), and won first in the popular vote. Glacier Rain scored a 52 and tied for second in the popular vote with […]

Photo Path 12 Exhibit, High Falls, Rochester NY

I decided to enter the 12th annual photo exhibit in Rochester this year, A Photographer’s Path 12, (download below) held at the High Falls Fine Art Gallery. This exhibit provides an opportunity for area photographers to show their work in a fine art gallery for both jury and popular judging. I felt it was time […]

Trekking to Florida and Back

It’s funny how one thing leads to another.  Late this past fall I decided that it was time to look for a replacement for my aging 1/2 ton pickup truck.  It served me faithfully for 10+ years, but was showing “the signs.” So I started the “hunt” while it still had enough value to be […]

Six New Galleries from 2008

Well, here it is, day two of 2009. The past week has been one of focused attention on this new site, the new galleries, putting it all together….lots of hours parked in front of a keyboard. Where does the time go? Part of all this reorganization was revisiting and reviewing thousands of images from 2008… […]

The NEW Images by Paul Yarnall

It is common knowledge among those who have created any kind of web presence how much time and energy it takes. It can be exhausting and frustrating especially if your html skills are minimal. Visitors to any site expect new material on a regular basis, otherwise it’s “been there done that”. So, my apologies to […]

Photo Panoramas, a quick ‘how to guide’

My recent trek to Ecuador with Safari Party Adventures as a Photo Specialist gave me opportunities to try out the ‘panorama’ kit I picked up from Really Right Stuff just before I left. Since this was my third time visiting the Andes Mountains, I knew I was going to see some amazing vistas and I […]

Think Tank Speed Racer… a traveling work bench

I am on a continual quest to find the best products for managing my gear. At last count I have bought and used four different back packs, all by LowePro. (All excellent products). However I was on a trend of getting bigger bags to carry more stuff. I was turning into a “beast of burden“. […]

Reflections on Ecuador 2008… Safari Party Adventures

Well, it’s been a little too long since my last post. The older I get the shorter the days get. Sorry about that. I am going to try creating shorter posts and do it more often. Anyway, I am sitting in my friend Jason Murphy’s condo in Santo Domingo, Ecuador. We just finished up the […]

The American Southwest… Out and Back

This past April I had the great fortune of visiting parts of the amazing American Southwest… focused mostly in Northern Arizona… the Page, Lake Powell area. How this journey came to be was not based in good fortune, or was it? Rewind back to last Fall. I learned of a weekend lecture by the superlative […]

Travel Photographer or Beast of Burden?

As a boy who grew up playing in the nearby woods and fields, it should come as no surprise that I became a Boy Scout. The one thing about scouting that really was a fit for me was captured in one of their mottos… “always be prepared”. It is nearly a half century later, and […]

Recovering Lost Images… PhotoRescue to the Rescue!

If you have never formatted the wrong card, deleted the wrong image in your camera, or deleted an image from your PC (or Mac) before it was backed up AND put the card back to work, then you haven’t been taking pictures long enough. You will eventually make one of these all too common errors. […]
