    Good Monday everybody. Here's what's up: If you're looking for a GPS for your digital camera (one that will embed the exact Latitude and Longitude of where you take each shot into the metadata of the image file), check out Moose Peterson's News blog today, as he reports on the super-small GPS unit he got for father's day. Click here for the link. When I was out at Santa Fe, one of the other instructors there, teaching a class called "Mastering the Portrait" was Karen Kuehn, and her presentation to the entire school just blew me away, and when I saw her student work (after taking her class out on location shoots all week), was just amazing. If you want to start off your week with some wonderful inspiration, check out Karen's site. (The next class she teaches---I'm going to go as a student…

    On September 19-23, 2007, I'm leading a photography workshop (in conjunction with the GAPW: Great American Photographic Workshops), along with my good friend and brilliant landscape photographer Bill Fortney (That's one of Bill's photos from Glacier shown above), and if you act quickly, you can snag one of the few remaining spots (it's limited to just 20 participants). In the early mornings and near sunset, we'll be shooting some of the most amazing scenic landscapes in all of North America, and during the day we'll be learning the "New Digital Photography" workflow using Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. Plus, with Bill Fortney there, you're going to learn a lot about your camera, a lot about landscape photography, and you're going to laugh an awful lot (Bill is an absolute blast at these workshops, and his genuine love of people, and landscape photography, is absolutely infectious).…

    That wonderful LCD screen on the back of your camera is just about useless if you're shooting outdoors in daylight. Last week during my first location shoot in Santa Fe, I would take a shot, look at the LCD and just laugh because it was so washed out with sunlight you really couldn't see if there was a photo there or not. On Friday's shoot (at Pecos National Historical Park), I remembered that I had been traveling (for the past month or so), with a Hoodman Loupe in my bag, but I had never tried it (since I hadn't tried it, I kept forgetting I had it). It works like a regular loupe (it hangs from a cord around your neck), but out in the field (in the daylight), you put it over your LCD, and it covers the entire screen; blocking out the…

    Although it's only been out around 60-days, I'm just delighted to announce that my book, "The Adobe Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers" (shown above--click for a larger photo) has already sold out of the first two printings of the book, and today the book's publisher (New Riders Publishing, an Imprint of Peachpit Press), is going to press for its third printing. Writing a book takes an awful lot of work, not just for me, but for my copy editors, and tech editors, and layout artists, and designers, and the crew at New Riders, and the printer (I could go on and on), but I can tell you that because so much effort goes into a book, it's every author's hope that it gets read, and helps, as many people as possible, so you can imagine how gratifying it is for me to see this…

    Janine Smith (one of my students from my Santa Fe Workshop last week, and a great photographer in her own right), sent me the top shot shown here, which she took during our live class shoot in the Saloon at the Eaves Movie Ranch. I thought it was pretty cool as you could see the set-up, and the final shot I took below it. Although we were primarily shooting with natural window light, eventually I did bring in a reflector to open up the shadows on the dark side of the cowboy's face, but this photo was taken before we moved the reflector into place. Anyway, I thought you might enjoy seeing both shots (thanks to Janine for sharing that "Live on Location" photo).
