Digeus Registry Cleaner

Specializing in fine portraits of Families, Children and high school Seniors for over 30 years in Hawaii.

This is totally unrelated to Photography or Portraits, which as you know is MY thing...But I just want to share this... I just recently obtained a copy of this program called Digeus Registry Cleaner. Here's what it says about what it does: Digeus Registry Cleaner speeds up your computer by cleaning errors in your Windows. It removes the junk that accumulates in your Windows Registry, fixes Windows errors which results in speeding up your computer. With Digeus Registry Cleaner you just need a few mouse clicks and your computer will become as good as a brand new one.

I am not a computer geek and don't even know what "registry errors" are, but I have heard the term before, and this program found some 1400 such errors on my computer! I was shocked! I had noticed that my computer was slower than it used to be, and I thought I was doing well with knowing to run a "cleanup" and "defrag" every month or 2. That didn't really seem to make any noticeable difference in its performance though.

Here's what I can tell you about this Digeus program...It's really easy to install and doesn't take long at all. It's extremely easy to run, one click to check for errors, which may take a while if your computer has as many errors as mine had. One click to "fix" the errors, and the fix doesn't take hardly any time at all! And it does seem to speed up the performance. All-in-all, I'd say it's worth the small investment.

Creating Your Perfect Portrait

Specializing in fine portraits of Families, Children and high school Seniors for over 30 years in Hawaii.

Creating Your Perfect Portrait is the title of my new book! It's my 3rd book, and it's my first book of it's kind.

My first book was a collection of anecdotes and thoughts that I felt impelled to write after I turned 50 years of age, and is titled, "Epiphanies Of The 50th Year". My second book is a coffee table book of portraits, and featured 12 portraits I created as a personal project in 2004 called "Local Heroes" along with many others.

Creating Your Perfect Portrait is dedicated to people who have an appreciation for fine photography, and are wanting to have a better than average portrait created. It is full of information that is intended to help people to achieve that goal.

There are chapters that deal with the process of interviewing photographers to find the one that is right for YOU. Everyone has specific needs and desires, and not all photographers are right for every person! I know I'm not the right photographer for everyone...and neither is any other photographer! So there's a chapter on questions to ask the photographers you are considering, and the answers that you should hear in response.

There's a chapter on what you should expect of the experience once you've hired a photographer, a chapter on what kinds of portrait products are available, a chapter on how to prepare for the photo session, what kind of timelines you should expect, and even a chapter on how to display and care for your portraits.

My goal is to begin distribution of the book by mid March. Meanwhile, in upcoming posts I will be sharing excerpts from the book. If you are interested in ordering a copy, let me know!
