iPad Pro Plotagraph DEMO – Animate Your Photos

Share This:

A Truly Magical App…

I love finding new apps to play around with when it comes to photography, and Plotagraph is one those apps that really sets itself apart from others. It’s hard to explain what the app does in a blog post so I have attached a video where I demo the photography voodoo that takes place when you go through the process of “animating” your photos.

For some, this app is going to be seen as an “art destroyer” or only for photography “noobs” that don’t know how to process their photos. PLEASE never let those types of photographers and artists bring you down. REAL art is all about having fun, trying new things, taking risks, and not being judgmental about anything until you give it a proper try! By giving movement and animation to certain photos, the Plotagraph app actually encompasses what a photo actually is when it’s stored in our memory. A photo is nothing more than a moment-in-time that we thought was worthy of capturing, and when we reminisce on those moments that we captured, we remember the motion and life that surrounded each of those special moments. Memories are never still images…

You can see the demo video I made below where I give you a quick example of how to use this app, and I highly recommend that you give it a try on your photos! It’s super fun and super easy to use!


How To Prep Your Photos For Printing – Fuji X-T2 20×30 Print

My Prepping Workflow…

Printing my work is one of my absolute favorite ways to showcase my photographs. There is just something special about seeing my work as a physical object that I can hang in my office. I appreciate it in a different way, and I really hope this blog post inspires all of you to start printing more as well.

Before you watch my step-by-step video, please know that everyone has a slightly different workflow of prepping their photos for print, so everything I am showing you is what works really great for me. If you would like to tweak my process or remove/add a step, feel free to create your own way that works well for you.

The biggest issue that people have when sending their digital files off for print is receiving a print that looks completely different from the digital file that it was printed from. For example, the vibrant and contrasty colors on a digital sunset photo may look awesome on a computer display, but they could be completely flat and lifeless on print.

Our computer displays need to be properly color calibrated to make sure that our computers and printers are reading the same color profile. There are quite a few ways you can improve your post processing experience in order for proper color, contrast, and sharpness to give your prints that extra “pop” that will make the sell. Check out my videos below…

The Edge Of Night -Dedicated To My Late Grandfather

Share This:

A Dedication to my late grandfather, Frank Mosley…

I love shooting sunsets, but it can be very hard sometimes to find truly magical sunsets here in Georgia. What makes a sunset magical? Well, it takes a few elements that all have to come together at the same time. The clouds have to be the right size and texture in order for the colors to reflect off of them, the colors have to be the perfect mixture of orange/purple/pink, the sun can’t be covered by any clouds so that the warm golden light can kiss the surroundings, and THAT is what makes a magical sunset…


I found this location and captured this photograph 4 hours and 11 minutes before my grandfather passed away and went to heaven. THIS photo turned out to be the truly magical sunset that I very rarely get to see. Some might say that it’s just a coincidence….. I say that God opened up the sky in the most beautiful way to bring home one of the best men I ever had the pleasure of knowing and being able to call my grandfather.
