Maine+Foliage+Lobster Photo Trek

Now I want to go to Maine, thanks to John M. Woody, ADE and Filmmaker extraordinaire. "Nothing could be as inspiring than to travel during fall foliage through the northeast of the United States," John says and we bet you'll agree after seeing this slideshow. John uses a DxO One camera and FotoMagico to pull it all together.

See FotoMagico in Action at the SHIFT Festival - tonight in Washington DC

If you happen to be in Washington DC tonight don't miss the event at Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. SHIFT is a Festival of American Orchestras and Boulder Philharmonic will be featured as the first orchestra. "Nature and Music" is this program's theme, inspired by Boulder's natural beauty and an example of how the orchestra responds to its location. The concert features a multimedia commission commemorating the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.

The composer Steve Lias uses FotoMagico to project the images in synchronization with the orchestra compositions. The event starts today, March 28th at 8 p.m. and tickets are available here.
