About Morgana Creely of Image Cinematic & our site specialist in "Thinking Outside the Box" for your productions. - Isn’t it just another image? Well no, actually – not for me. - I’ve always been drawn to images that tell stories. Old movies and photographs both hold a fascination for me – I love to wonder what has just happened, or what is about to happen next! These are the kinds of images I love to create. - Digital photography and retouching allows me to create the cinematic stories that I want to tell, and to share.

In today's show featuring Nathan Todd Cool, we talk about his many hat’s. Author, Engineer, Meteorologist, & Photographer. Find out how Nathan balances his many interests, about how engineering plays into his work as a photographer, about fitness photography, & how the weather may affect you if your photography is done on the beaches.
This weeks pixeLobby podcast we talked to Nathan Wilkerson. Nathan’s native art is done by hand and then he brings it into autocad and does his magic there. He is a perfectionist. So much so that he assists the screenprinters on making sure they align things perfectly for the tshirts. He designs Tshirts, Art cards, Digital prints that are matted, decals for automobiles.
When someone tells Nathan it cannot be done he does not take that for an answer. He will work to find a way. He is also known for not only finding a way but the most efficient with the best quality. As an engineer it helps him think outside of the box too. Like when he started hand carving canoes and working on totem poles - he then would discuss new ways on how to do the projects.

Our first show! Introducing the pixeLobby team.
What is your workflow, what softwares do you use and what do you use to manipulate.
Micah - Shoots with a5100 and D7000. Pulls files directly into Lightroom from camera card, allows Lightroom to do organization (http://pixelobby.com/importing-and-organizing-images-in-lightroom-a-crash-course-2/). Edits in LR/PS, hand-blends HDR in Photoshop and Nik Efex Color Efex 4.
Cindy - Uploads to Lightroom, LR makes a copy to backup. Uses LR for basic tweaks, lens correction etc. Uses Photoshop for cropping/additional edits and masking. Uses Noiseware and Nik Efex.
Ed - Shoots D7000, uses Photoshop almost exclusively along with ACR. Is considering LR for organization.
Jesus - Graphic designer, uses stock photos mostly, doesn't use Lightroom often. Uses Bridge->Photoshop, after sketching with pencil to create design. Creates tutorials when he learns a new technique.
Brian - Shoots Canon 5D Mark III, workflow with camera cards, numbers them 1-10 in that sequence so he always has files backed up. Copies files over to photos folder labeled with date and location information. Imports folder into LR - backed up to other removable drives automatically.
