Sony just released the Playstation 4 Remote Play app for any Android phone.. However, if you’re rooted like me, launching the app will give you the error 88001003. There’s no official documentation to what this error means, but many root users, like myself, have figured out what this error is and resolving it is fairly easy.Read More
Last night was the final Cruise Night of 2019 in Tinley Park, IL. Since my 4 year old loves cars, I thought the family should go see these classic beauties one last time. I brought my camera to capture some of these classic cars, but I was limited to what I could snap when my son would allow me to. That meant I had to snap in between him running from car to car, asking me to pick him up to see the inside, when he wasn’t in the shot (but I did get some with him next to or inside the cars too), or when he wasn’t yelling at me not to take pictures.
As you browse through the gallery, you’ll see the before and after images so you can see the transformation of my shots. If you like seeing the before and after shots, let me know and I’ll continue to do this with future work.
I wanted to create more YouTube content. Among that content is how to edit with DxO Photolab. There are a ton of tutorials for using Adobe Lightroom, but not many using DxO’s software. I want to help change that and grow my skills in building an online presence. Above is the photo which I discuss how to edit in DxO Photolab. Below is the video taking you step by step through my process.
I won’t recreate the steps I went through in the video. However, I do want to stress that this video does show how much can be done with a RAW file. The unedited photo, shown in the beginning of the video, shows an almost black image in which just the moon is visible. I boosted the shadows, some exposure, and used some local adjustments to restore details in the clouds and water.
Learn how I edited one of my most popular photos using DxO Photolab. See where the photo started and what steps I took to transform it into the colorful photo of the lighthouse on the water. If you want to see more, let me know.Read More

If you’ve tried to add Google Adsense ads to your Squarespace site and hit a roadblock because Google asks you to upload ads.txt to the root level of your site, I found a solution. By uploading the file to your Squarespace site and using the file’s web address, you can trick Google into thinking the file is at the root level with a URL redirect.

Earlier this week was the first classic car cruise night for Tinley Park and it didn’t disappoint. When my 4 year old son told me he wanted to go, how could I resist? The two of us went to downtown Tinley Park to be amazed at more classic cars than we could imagine!Read More
