Wetpixel Live: RIP David Salvatori
The super-talented underwater photographer David Salvatori died in an accident while diving off Sicily last weekend. David was always open to new ideas and shared ideas about techniques and creative ideas with everyone. Many of us in the Wetpixel community benefitted profoundly from his advice, which he gave freely. Alex and Adam reminisce sadly and fondly about their memories of David and chat about how much we will miss him. God speed David Salvatori.
Nerd Alert: Erin Quigley on Lightroom Warning
Erin Quigley of GoAskErin has posted recently about the warning that is popping up when Mac users attempt to open a RAW image from Lightroom into Photoshop. She reassures us that the warning is simply a programming error on Adobe’s behalf, and users should simply select the “Open Anyway” option.
RIP David Salvatori
It is with great regret that I have to inform the Wetpixel community that David Salvatori died in a diving accident off Sicily last weekend. David was a talented underwater photographer, universally liked, admired, and respected, who freely and generously shared his knowledge and experience within the Wetpixel community over many years. Our thoughts go out to his wife, Maria Cristina di Palma and to his family and many friends. The world is a darker place today, and our hearts are heavy. God speed and rest in peace David.
