In this the month that my old haunt Hapu Bar has closed its doors for good, I dedicate this post to my time in Europe. I lived in Prague from the summer of 2000 to the Fall of 2002. I took some better photos then the ones shown here but these are the images that conjure the magic of that era for me. Pictured here are good friends and total strangers. I miss them all!

A recent picture of my nieces, Luisa & Matilda seems like a good place to end.
Hello peeps, This month's blog post is the result of an experiment I began in Prague over the summer. I had been wanting to try out the RGB method for making color images out of black & white negatives since I read about it some time ago. It's something I plan on incorporating in the color photography class, which as of right now is entirely analog.
The way this process works, briefly, is that you shoot three shots of a particular scene, one with a red filter, one with a green filter and one with blue (RGB). Then, in Photoshop you convert each image to its complimentary color (CMY) and then sandwich them together to create a full color photograph. The final images have this wonderful historic look, that is perfect for a city like Prague. I also like the way the tourists are broken into single colors. They're everywhere in Prague so you have to do something with them!
