X Factor December 14th Recap

Chris Rene was the next person to perform he sang fly by, Sugar Ray. To be honest I had trouble hearing him for the first few bars the background noise was kind of drowning him out. Once I could hear him I thought he was pretty much on key and I liked how he was performing. When he was finished the audience was shouting his name. It is very clear that people really like Chris Rene. I have to admit I like him too. I don’t think that he is as good as the other three remaining contestants though. All of the judges except Simon seemed to say nice things about him as a person but not that much about the performance. Simon said he liked the performance but was not all that fond of the singing.

Melanie Amaro was the third singer. Melanie sang Hero by, Mariah Carey. My initial thought was if anyone can carry this one off it is Melanie and true to form she did carry off and sounded great, but she took some liberties with the ends of phrases I did not like all that much and she did not seem to have the passion I have sseen her have in the past and that, that song deserves. Not my favorite Melanie Amaro performance, but still solid. I still believe she has a great chance at winning. L.A. Reid seemed to hear the same thing that I did he did not feel the passion either. Nicole though the song was a perfect fit, Paula said her voice is amazing, and Simon said it was Bloody Fantastic and it was not Karaoke.

Josh Krajcik was the last two perform and he sang: Come Together by The Beatles. I really liked the performance myself, there was a couple of times I thought he could have powered it out more but didn’t but over all I really liked it. I love how he takes the stage and performs. All of the judges liked the performance and Simon said he would be shocked if he did not see him the finals. Paula wants to see him live, and L.A. thought it was the best of his most recent performances. Nicole is in awe of him.



Hello, my name is Rick Miller, welcome to comprehensive photography. In the name 'comprehensive', means to have a pretty solid grasp about the art of contemporary photography, and how the tools (both hardware and software) are all used together to produce a very precious product to meet your needs. Photography simply means that we are able to capture an image through the use of light and film, or, by using digital chips in very sophisticated cameras. My guess is that you "GOOGLED" something about photography to find us here on this website (don't you love Goggle?). I live in Santa Rosa and Eureka, California, about 40 miles (Eureka is a bit further north) north of the golden gate bridge with my wife Pat and our two boys — Ben, and Jeremy. My daughter, Sarah, is grown and lives in Portland Oregon. I am strictly a digital photographer, although I have purchased thousands of rolls of Fugi ASA 400 (now called ISO, the digital cameras auto-correction, for light compensation). Our negatives are all digitized and burned onto a DVD. I've been shooting digital for over five years, with my previous 28 working for AT&T (in digital transport via fiber, DS1, and DS3) — during which time I was a manager in charge of 911, and all "First Responder" communications, for 5 years. I shoot mostly with Canon products — my two camera bodies, and all my lenses are Canon. I edit in a variety of software. Adobe Lightroom and I use Apple's "Aperture" (I'm a Mac person), "Light Room" and "Adobe CS4 Extended". These are tough economic times, anyone out of work and financial issues knows what I mean. I also know how important it is to document special times in our personal lives, without costing a lot. I love working with you, and creating a quality product that will best capture those special moments in time forever. So don't let these tough times stop you from documenting YOUR special times, let's get together and make memories. Have you ever been feeling a little low and maybe started thinking of someone special, and then gone to a photo album or watched a slide show and re-filled your heart with joy? It is truly worth it. This website is growing very fast, it is meant for business but it is also meant for fun (Thank You Rod Remelin). Please feel free to shoot me an E-Mail, and tell me what you like, hate or feel indifferent about. Thank You for being here Sincerely Rick Miller
