Searching with Sensei
Adobe Stock just broke the 150-million asset ceiling this March, but a huge collection of great content doesn't mean much if you can't quickly find what you need. With that sentiment in mind, I dig deep into searching for assets on Adobe Stock and talk about the various ways that Adobe's Artificial Intelligence, Sensei, can help you find what you need, fast.

Life Near the Lake - The Photographs
It recently occurred to me that - while I have published articles about my new show - I had never really shared large size versions of the images that are at the show. So without further ado, here they are.

What a Rush!
Recently, I participated in a video training workshop at Adobe in San Jose CA, geared towards making us more comfortable not just with video-editing software, but also the process of making videos. All the Digital Media Solutions Consultants (SCs) and Customer Success Managers (CSMs) took part in this training. Hands down, this training was one of the most relevant and effective uses of my professional development time, to date, at Adobe. Let's face it, to the novice, creating videos can be quite intimidating. But this 2-day workshop opened my eyes to the creative possibilities of video.

Views from the Fortress of Moderate Solitude
I’m doing my first photography show in more than 2 decades! And this too is quite exciting. It’s been a long time since I shared my photography in analog form; I’ve spent many years publishing and promoting and sharing my work online through various channels. But from January 17 to March 28, 20 of my photographs will be on display (and - ahem - for sale) at the gallery space at Elmhirst's Resort, in Keene, Ontario.

A Night at the (Neon Sign) Museum
Several years ago, I visited the Neon Sign Museum in the daytime with a colleague and had a fantastic time. I thought it would be great to see the Boneyard by night, with many of the old signs rehabilitated and actually working. So, I went with one of my work friends and his wife. It was definitely a worthwhile side trip and a great start to a busy week.

Using a Custom Domain Name in Adobe Portfolio
Recently, I decided it was finally time to switch from the Adobe Portfolio domain name - jimbabbage.myportfolio.com - to one of my custom reserved domain names; jimbabbage.photography. I mean, why not? I honestly don’t know why I didn’t think to do this sooner.  The process for making this happen - while a little geeky - was not particularly difficult and that is where this tutorial comes in.

Assault on the Fortress of Moderate Solitude
The 12th annual Excellent Adventure happened in early August. As is my practice, I've put together a Spark Page with lots of photos and commentary about the trip. Feel free to scroll through the page here or you can get the full screen experience.

What is a Photograph?
While recently touring an Ansel Adams exhibit at the University of Arizona, I was struck by the concept that there is no such thing as the "final" image. Read on in this Spark Page story to learn why.

Viva MAX Vegas!
Once again, I had the honor and privilege of attending and participating in Adobe MAX, this year in Las Vegas. It was an amazing and exhausting few days, where I not only covered the Keynote sessions and Sneaks, but also performed as a Teaching Assistant in several workshops throughout the week.  Even though I came home with some sort of "con-crud" in my lungs, it was still worthwhile. This is truly a conference for creatives of all types.

Photography and the Zen of Seeing
This ad-hoc, irregularly updated journal is where I’ll put down some thoughts - and not a few photographs - throughout the month of my sabbatical.

Starry, Starry Nights
I've gathered together some of my favorite night shots from the past few years. I hope you enjoy them.
