    I've talked about Lexar's excellent Pro-Digital Photography Site on the blog here before, and I honored that the folks over at Lexar have included me on their site, and are featuring a brand new free video clip I did on my favorite method of converting to B&W using Camera Raw. (Click here to jump there---the video appears under my bio, but right above some samples from my portfolio). This video tuturial is for both Raw and JPEG shooters, as I start by showing how to open JPEG images in CS3's Camera Raw, and then I show two methods for making the conversion. Also, while you're there, jump back one level (to the main Pro Photography Corner section [click here for that area--where you can also just click on Scott Kelby in this list of Pro Photographer Profiles on the left side]) and check out…

    Last night I got to shoot with two really great guys: Scott Eccleston and Mark Hensley. It had been gray and very overcast all day, and by the time they picked me up (around 4:00 pm) it was already starting to rain. They asked if I wanted to postpone the shoot and try for another day, and I said, "No way---let's just shoot something that looks good in bad weather." I asked if there where any creeks or streams nearby, and Scott knew of one near his home--an old mill with a small waterfall, so we headed there. What's great about shooting streams in weather like this is that the dark skies overhead, combined with the shade from the trees, force your shutter to stay open longer to make a proper exposure, which gives you that silky water effect (like you see in the…

    Check out Jezebel.com which looks at the photo retouching work done to a Redbook magazine cover photo of Country Music star Faith Hill. It's really a very well done retouch, and fairly indicative of the portrait retouching that goes into pretty much every magazine cover shot you see these days, but for some reason, people are making a big fuss, like this isn't "business as usual" (but believe me--it is). Some of the retouches were pretty standard fare; they made her look a little thinner overall, trimmed and smoothed her waist on the right side, removed blemishes on her arm, lightened her skin tone, and removed some facial wrinkles. The more interesting work appears to be done on her arm, which is much thinner and slightly repositioned in the final cover, plus part of a second arm was added behind her (pretty masterfully I…

    I've been using a Firewire card reader to get my images from my memory card into my laptop for quite a while now, but I forgot to bring it with me to one of my Lightroom Tour stops and wound up borrowing a friend's Delkin Compact Flash reader that slides directly into your laptop's Express Card slot (so there's no Firewire or USB cord necessary). But beside the sheer convenience of not having to carry a reader and a connector cable, in copying the photos off my card---it absolutely hauled butt! (and "butt" isn't the term I think best describes it). In fact, I've never had images copied at anywhere near that speed (up to 20MB per seconds!). So, as soon as I got back home, I ordered the same one: Delkin's eFilm Express Card 34 (for Compact Flash cards), and it just rocks.…

    I first heard about this online promo for the new Simpson's movie from the PhotoJojo.com blog, and I have to say; this rocks! You upload a photo of yourself (it has to be 640x480, so go to Photoshop, create a new blank document that's 640x480 pixels, then drag a photo of you into that document; scale it and position it so it fills the space, then save it as a JPEG), and it analyzes your face and turns you into a Simpson's character. You have some control over how the final image looks (including accessories) , and besides being very well done, it's an incredible productivity killer (luckily, I'm still on vacation, so I have time to do silly stuff like this; see the "Scott Kelby Simpson" version of me shown above). Here's the link to turn your own photo in a Simpson's character.

    It's the end of the week, nearing the end of my vacation, and here's what's going on: Want to see a very cool glimpse of the future? Check out this article on David duChemin's "Pixelated Image" blog about a new technology called "Zink" (Zero Ink), which will put hand-held mobile color printers into our hands that don't use ribbons or inks (and developers will be able to add this technology to their products). Start at David's site to learn more about this very promising technology. If you haven't caught the past few episodes of Photoshop User TV, we've got a very special new segment from our buddy (and Photoshop World instructor) Deke McClelland. He's been doing some stuff with channels that I don't think you'll find anywhere else, so if you get a sec--check out these last couple of episodes (and there's more Deke…
