I’m in Amsterdam this week and have been out having fun shooting. I wanted to send a few photos to family members who are not on Facebook. It got me thinking about email and how dull it can look.
Let’s face it, if you love photography, you’re an artist at heart! So, why not express it when you write your emails? Here are some tips on how to play with fonts and create an original signature in Mac Mail on your computer. (With apologies to my PC readers… You may be able to do this, too, but I don’t know how… I hope you can figure it out from these tips!)

I love my new MacBook Pro, running the new operating system, Mavericks! But when I started to migrate my files and applications from my old Mac laptop, which was running Mountain Lion, I made some really big mistakes. So, in the fine tradition of “Do as I say, not as I do”, here is the wrong way to do it and the right. I hope this helps make your migration seamless!
First of all, wrong way… Full of enthusiasm, I turned on my old laptop and my new one. Migration Assistant was easy to find on the new one, and I rashly decided that I didn’t need to connect the two with anything as old fashioned as a cable.

Now… right way. This requires a little work, but it’s easy and fast! If you have found this post because you’re stuck in the middle of a slow migration, don’t despair. You can stop it and start all over. That’s the good news!!! To stop it, press Command + Q on both computers. Now, you can jump right into the following instructions. Read more →
Blogging… What was I thinking? A year ago, as I was contemplating a move back to the States from Seoul, South Korea, I promised my photography students that I would start a blog. I wanted to keep in touch and continue the conversation. Read more →
