Shedding Light on Steve Jobs
Lens: DA 35/2.8 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: In a Ray of Sunshine 
Posted By: Sailor, 01-14-2012, 09:36 AM

I'm currently reading Isaacson's fascinating biography of Steve Jobs, a Christmas gift from my younger daughter. This morning I decided to shed some light of my own on Jobs by using the morning sunshine angling through the double doors to our master bath. This gave me a chance to try some B&W conversions with Aperature, with which I'm still a tyro.

Jer, they should of checked with you first, any of these would have been a great book cover. As always you have the best b/w conversions, have you gotten away from using Corel PSP completely? Enjoy that beautiful Texas coastal weather while enjoying your book.

Thanks much, Dave. Yeah, Mr. Jobs has brought me a lot of fun over the years - we started back in the 80s with an Apple IIc and used Macs thereafter until my company switched to Windows machines and I had to switch as well in order to work at home (this was well before the laptop was king). Recently, Steve has cost me some money - an iPhone three years ago, an iPad about a year ago and a new Mac for the holidays.

Hey, Bob, thanks a lot for such flattering words.

Yeah, PSP is now out of the picture since even the new version doesn't support our new Mac. Frankly, the operation and interface of Aperture are more intuitive and elegant than those of PSP, but I still haven't got the feel of the controls yet. Also, I'm experimenting with workflow, since the Mac version of the Pentax software is different than the Windows one to which I was accustomed. It'll take a while, but I'll get it together eventually.

Well, I meant to convey mystery rather than malevolence - but I suppose he does look a bit sinister. My understanding is that Jobs didn't much care about the book's written contents, but he took some effort to decide on the cover photo. A remarkable and unusual man.

Hey, Buddy, thanks. Actually, I meant the photos as a short series that progressively reveals more details of the book's cover - maybe that progression got lost in the translation.
