January 22, 2014

It has been some time since I have spoken about IT and Networking on this blog. In fact I’m not certain I have every talked about IT and Networking on this blog but now is as good a time as any to start.

The New Wix.com

January 8, 2014

Years ago at the prompting of my niece I signed up for Wix.com to create a website. After a few tries using their template I gave up. I didn’t really like what they had to offer at the time. Today a friend mentioned it again as a way to create a site for her business so I decided to take a look at it again and I found something completely different. Read the rest of this entry »


Green Screen Photography

December 31, 2013

Recently I was invited to photography individuals at a Small Business Networking event at the Montgomery County Media station. I, along with 3 other photographers, took pictures to give the local small business owners a more professional head shot for their LinkedIn profile. (The networking event at MCM is a monthly gathering hosted by Kelly Leonard (of Taylor-Leonard Corp) and Tony Spearman-Leech of MCM. It is a great event that I’ve attended, photographed and video recorded for over a year.)

Mobile Streaming vs Desktop Streaming

I recently complete an edit for a client in which he recorded a few video segments for his health and nutrition business.

And again I received the same complaint: bad audio. Read the rest of this entry »


Raising a Screen

September 25, 2013


My church is premiering a Christian movie designed to get people talking about the book “The Great Controversy” which talks about God and how evil was brought into this world; a world which was supposed to be free from sickness, death and evil.
To enable the proper viewing of the movie many of us had to get together to erect a 40ft screen. It took time and a LOT of hands.
The stills were shot with a Swann Freestyle Action Cam, cleaned up in Lightroom and then complied in Sony Vegas Pro 12.


Digital Age

August 25, 2013

The move to digital audio mixing has come along in a trickle, to say the least. Not that digital mixers haven’t been available for over 2 decades but it has taken a while for them to be at a price point that people can accept. There was also the issue of fear about the complexity of installation and operation that comes with a digital board. I think PreSonus has done a great job of taking care of both of those issues with their line of digital mixing consoles. Read the rest of this entry »
