Today, I’d like to share a personal story about giving yourself permission to listen deeply to your creative soul.

Photoshop's Black & White adjustment layer is a remarkable tool for converting color to black and white, yet it has a weakness. Using a single Black & White adjustment layer, you can't independently adjust tonality (brightness) of regions displaying the same color. For example, a blue car and a blue sky cannot be independently adjusted…until now! In this tutorial, I'll show you a simple way
For Robin Truesdale, documentary filmmaking is much more a passion than a career.
“Documentary is one of the most powerful mediums that we have,” she says. “I find myself working with groups or people that don’t have much money, because I like being able to help people get their message out through documentary.”

A select group of professional photographers are contributing their personal “Thin Places” interpretive images to the Arapahoe Studio gallery walls.
The ancient Celts described places that relax us, transform us, and help us step beyond the mundane world as "Thin Places." It can be any place where the veil between the ordinary and the transcendent is thinnest, where heaven and earth are only steps apart.
When she first left the corporate world to work for a small custom training design firm, Lisa Van Damme was more than happy to work from her home and from cafés.
“But I’m often on teleconferences and meetings, and you can’t really have a professional teleconference in a coffee shop,” she says.
By happy coincidence, Van Damme started to Google “coworking in Boulder” just as
What are Enhanced Campaigns?
Enhanced campaigns help you reach people with the right ads, based on their context such as location, time of day and device type, all from a single campaign by using bid multipliers and ad preferences.

21st century architects have moved away from hand-built models and blueprints and into the new realm of digital imaging technology to convey their designs to the world. But with computer-generated imagery now widely available, architectural designers like Tyler Barnard, a coworker at Boulder Digital Arts, recognize the need to innovate to stay at the cutting edge of the industry. Barnard pushes the boundaries of the
I like to show a picture of my frantic self in a sinking boat on a river somewhere in the jungles of South America, trying to bail out the boat with a soup plate. “That’s what the producer’s job is,” I say. “You have to keep the boat afloat.” Producers of documentaries, in stark contrast to their cousins in the feature film world, are frequently
