    At my Lightroom Live Tour (which kicks off in LA next Wednesday), I'm going to be doing three live studio shoots in the classroom, so I needed a full studio set-up (softboxes, stands, background, etc.) for those shoots. I usually use strobes for my studio work, but last month (when I did that two-day hands-on Lightroom workshop at the Digital Technology Centre in Sarasota, Florida), I got a chance to try a continuous light source, because they had Westcott SpiderLites, and I was so impressed that when I put this tour together, I called B&H Photo to buy a SpiderLite system for the tour. Well, they put me in touch with David Piazza over at Westcott, and with their help we put together a three-light system to my specs, with three different size softboxes, stands, two TD-5 SpiderLites and a smaller TD-3 SpiderLite, along…

    I just learned yesterday that our special bonus episode of Adobe Photoshop TV, which we taped live at Adobe's CS3 launch event in New York City, has been download more than 890,000 times so far. If you haven't had a chance to watch it, click here to watch it online. Thanks to our friends at Adobe Systems, especially Addy Roff and Cari Gushiken, who helped make our CS3 Launch Show happen.

    Lots of Lightroom stuff today: I did a little video clip to give readers some insights into my new Lightroom book (what makes it different, the format, etc.) and the cool thing is my Web dept. embedded the video right within a static banner so you can watch it right on the same page (it works cooler than it sounds). So, to watch it, go to PlanetPhotoshop.com, then you'll see the square banner on the right side of the page, and it has a button on it called "Watch Video Intro." Click that button, and you don't go to a different page---the video clip plays right there. Check it out. Saw this post in the Canon digital photography forum, about a NAPP member who just got his first issue of "Darkroom" (our new magazine for Adobe Lightroom users). Read his post here. The Los…

    It's Wednesday, and you know what that means? OK, I'm not sure either, but in the meantime, here's some news: There's only 12 day's left to pick up Adobe Lightroom at Adobe's special introductory price of $199 (US). On May 1st, it moves up to it's normal price of $299. You can buy it direct from Adobe by clicking here, or from our friends of B&H Photo. NAPP's own Corey Barker “The Photoshop Lad’ (who writes the daily Photoshop Blog at PlanetPhotoshop.com), has a really nice video tutorial on a highlight portrait effect that's pretty slick. I've seen a number of different takes on this technique, but I think Corey has nailed it. Check it out right here. Adobe released some free updates yesterday for Camera Raw 4, and the Adobe DNG Converter. You can download them right here (for Macintosh), or here (for…

    Well, I'm back from my GAPW Workshop in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and I had just an absolutely wonderful experience. I met so many great people, and I learned as much as I taught, in no small part to sharing the teaching duties with Nikon's amazing Bill Fortney (pictured with me above; photo by Chuck Summers). Bill is just an amazing photographer, a gifted instructor, and is one of those guys who can't wait to share his hard-earned knowledge with his students (I filled pages with notes from his lectures). It was just a enlightening, laugh-filled, and inspiring workshop all the way around. That was, of course, until I found out that my older brother Jeff, who was out visiting friends in Denver, got really ill, and was not only in the hospital, but was facing emergency surgery. Well, I was on…

    This was taken first thing this morning (click for larger version) at my photo workshop in Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains (in about 33° chilly weather---brrrrrrr) in an old fashioned Grist Mill in Cades Cove. This really nice guy (named Kevin) was working in the Grist Mill and was nice enough to pose long enough for me a click off a few shots (he even let me move him into some decent light). I'll post some more shots from this morning, but I had to fly out tonight (it's a long story) so I'll miss tomorrow's shoots (rats!). Had an amazing time teaching at the GAPW workshop, and had some absolute first-rate photographers in my class as well. I taught quite a bit; met some really wonderful people, and made some great new friends. I guess that's what these workshops are really all about---learning, laughing,…
