    Happy Thursday everybody: here's what's up: The fine folks over at Westcott (the people behind the amazing Spiderlites that I use in studio, and on my Lightroom Tour) have featured my Lightroom tour in their customer newsletter (that's it above--click to see a much larger version).The headshot you see in the newsletter was taken for a Photoshop CS3 online course I'm working on, using just one TD-5 Spiderlite and one Westcott 30" reflector. To get that fashion/glamor look I used a "Clamshell" (also called "Over and Under" lighting ) set-up, with the Spiderlite TD-5 (with a large softbox attached) positioned directly in front of the model's face, angled toward her, and positioned as close as I could get it to her face without actually being seen in the frame. Then I positioned the reflector (silver side up) just below her neck (again, just out…

    Jeff Natrop posted a comment here on the blog yesterday about a site called "Obsidian Dawn" with lots of free Photoshop Brush Sets you can download, and I took a look at it and I have to say; it's pretty darn cool (plus, it's free, which is always nice). Drop by there and check it out (a sample of their most popular brush sets, Hearts, is shown above). Thanks to Jeff for turning us on to this one. :-)

    Vacation's over, and I'm back in the office today (it's great to see all my friends again! Even though I needed the time off, I really missed my gang). Now, onto to today's news: Well, you knew it had to happen, right? My new book "The iPhone Book" (shown above) is already on press and will be in bookstores shortly. It uses the same layout, style, and theme as my book "The Digital Photography Book" so if you have that book, you'll feel right at home. Even better: I snagged the person who is arguably the world's leading expert on the iPhone as my co-author; Terry White (from Terry White's Tech Blog). Terry I and split the writing duties---each writing half the book (if you're wondering how we chose who wrote what; it was easy----I had Terry do all the hard chapters). You can…

    This is from Saturday night, and what I like best about it; I didn't pump up the color in Photoshop (in fact, I did all the processing in Lightroom, and didn't touch the Vibrance, Saturation, or HSL controls whatsoever---the light was that great!). The only adjustments were Exposure, Shadows, and sharpening. It was taken about 30 minutes after sunset, shot on a tripod (of course), and I was aided by a dedicated squadron of mosquitoes determined to make sure I didn't shoot for 35 minutes after sunset. I have a couple other shots from Maine (below) from my final set, so scroll down to see those. :)
