    Affinity photo is a new alternative to the ubiquitous Photoshop from Adobe. It offers all the basics you might need for most photo processing, but it also offers some very nice extras, including an ability to stitch panoramas and to produce HDR images. How well does it work?

  • Winter Black and White Photography in Menasha, Wisconsin

    February weather in Wisconsin is known for being cold, windy, cloudy and snowy. Though lacking the pop of color that Wisconsin's other three seasons are known for, winter's gray days accentuate the contrast between the white of the cold snows and the dark tones of buildings, bridges, rocks and trees. This creates perfect conditions for black and white photography.
