areas of nature photography!
OPENING CONVERTED BREEZEBROWSER IMAGES IN PHOTO SHOP
IMPORTANT NOTE: THESE INSTRUCTIONS APPLY ONLY TO
PC-USERS PHOTOGRAPHING WITH CANON DIGITAL CAMERAS.
I first started using Breezebrowser to convert the
raw files from my EOS 1D and 1Ds cameras, it was a
pain to try and figure out which file in a given
converted file folder was the one that I wanted to
open and it in Photoshop... I found myself writing
the long file numbers on a slip of paper and then
heading over to find and open them in Photoshop.
Former student and incredibly gifted bird
photographer Greg Downing (of NPN fame) came to my
rescue when he and Heather visited this past spring
to photograph the baby Sandhill Cranes at ILE.
showed me how to set up Breezebrowser so that when I
right click on an image, it opens the file in
Photoshop! (If an image is not already converted,

CARHARTT WATCH CAPS
Recently, a subscriber wrote:
know that you have magical powers (I see it in your
pictures), but please give us some clues on how you
get all that stuff in your RoadRunner AW. I have
tried and it is not happening. Do you remove most of
the padded dividers?
AM: No. I remove
the padded dividers (except for the outside
protective shell). In "The Art of Bird
Photography," I describe how I use woolen (now
acrylic) watch caps (like those worn by sailors) for
packing my photo gear. I do the same to this day.
I simply place most of the larger items like camera
bodies, short lenses, and even intermediate
telephotos in individual watch caps before packing
them into the Roadrunner. They provide great
cushioning, absorb moisture, keep dust out, and pack
easily. I recently found a great supplier
for Carhartt Acrylic Watch Caps, All Seasons
Uniforms. Here is a link to the page with the watch
was so excited to find them at a great low price
($5.99 @) that I ordered 15 of them! I ordered two
or three each of several colors to make finding
various items easier.
If any of you in the New York City metropolitan area
are in a position to help me publicize the upcoming
Queens, NY (in Bayside) it would be greatly
appreciated. Though the In-The-Field Workshops and
the ensuing JBWR IPT sold out quickly, the full day
How-to Seminar (The Art of Nature Photography; It
Ain't Just Birds" is wide open.
If you are in a photography club with an e-mail
list, it would be great to send the notice below to
the list (with an offer of a $10 discount for club
members). Alternatively, we have lots of extra
brochures and would be glad to send as many as you
need. As I will be away until the last week of
July, please e-mail Lois at
and let her know how many you would like and where
she should send them.
Thanks for considering this request!
