Where Have You Been?

Where Have You Been?

As many of you noticed, I haven’t posted any videos or articles in over a month. Many people have kindly emailed me, with increasing frequency, asking me if I’m ok and if anything was wrong. I’d like to thank everyone for their kind concern and emails. I never realized I had so many friends — thoughtful, kind friends and I thank each and every one of you.

Since I’m getting more and more emails and messages of concern, I thought I’d write this short blog post explaining where I’ve been.

Last fall, my youngest son Joe was diagnosed with Stage 3, Hodgkin’s Lymphoma which requires six months of chemotherapy. Thankfully he’s doing great and all of this recent tests and scans are coming back completely clean and he’s expected to fully recover although he must endure three more rounds of chemo with the last to occur on March 9th. Fortunately for us, here in Buffalo New York, we have one of the foremost cancer hospitals in the United States and actually, the first ever cancer hospital in the United States, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center so he’s in great hands.

I was doing my best to keep up with videos and actually, at first, wasn’t missing a beat. The tension got a bit too much for my wife though — A few weeks ago she was hospitalized with what the doctors called, a hypertensive episode due to stress. I decided to take some time off and did so without warning.

Well, my wife is better and Joe is doing great — they actually consider him to be in remission although he must finish the remaining rounds of chemo to make sure that the illness is eradicated at the cellular level. Roswell Park even asked him to be in a commercial. His knee-jerk reaction was to say no but we at least got him to consider it. With things almost back to normal, I’m beginning to make videos again.


What I’m Doing Now

Before I took my unscheduled hiatus, I had fully recorded fourteen videos on the filters in Aurora HDR 2018. All I did was the RAW recording of the videos — today and tomorrow I’ll be rendering and uploading those videos so you should see those within days. I also have about half of the videos series on On1 Photo RAW 2018 recorded and will be working on those as well and hope to have the rest of the videos recorded and all of them rendered and uploaded shortly after the Aurora HDR Videos.

Thank you, everyone, for your patience and understanding — I know many of you are anxiously awaiting the On1 Series and I sincerely apologize for the delay.


and now for something completely different…

The majority of emails I get concern Lightroom so I know, of all the things I do, Lightroom is the most popular. I will be rebooting a new Lightroom video series — the date will be announced after I finish up the On1 Photo RAW 2018 series.
