    I'm honored to announce that educator Rhona Shand, Undergraduate Coordinator and Associate Professor of Art at Pittsburg State University, is the first recipient of the "Bruce Fraser Photoshop World Memorial Scholarship," which was created to honor the memory of beloved Photoshop author and instructor Bruce Fraser, who passed away late last year. Rhona was chosen by Adobe's own Photoshop team to receive the scholarship, which includes her airfare, hotel, and full Photoshop World conference pass (courtesy of NAPP: the National Association of Photoshop Professionals) as a way of honoring Bruce's lifetime legacy of learning. My personal congratulations to Rhona, who'll be attending the Las Vegas Photoshop World Conference next week, for being chosen as the first recipient of the Bruce Fraser scholarship---one dedicated to a man who has meant so much to so many throughout this industry.

    Next week, during the opening keynote for the Photoshop World Conference & Expo, our industry will honor two inductees into the Photoshop Hall of Fame: Color management guru, author, and instructor Andrew Rodney (AKA "The Digital Dog"), along with Adobe's Senior Director for Product Management, Professional Digital Imaging Group; Kevin Connor, whose countless contributions to the growth, success, and development of Photoshop have helped guide the application to become the amazing phenomenon it is today. The Photoshop Hall of Fame was founded in 2001 to honor those individuals whose contributions to the art, business, and development of Adobe Photoshop have enduring value. It's an honor to recognize Andrew and Kevin, and to add their names to the Photoshop World Hall of Fame trophy alongside some of our industry's most valued, respected, and bevolved individuals. My sincere congratulations to both Andrew and Kevin on your…

    Here's some quick news: I ran across this blog this past week, and I just really found the photography interesting. It's called "The Landscapist" but it's not your typical landscape photography site, and I particularly liked their vision statement, which is, "Photography that aims at being true, not at being beautiful, because what is true most often is beautiful." There's just something about their stuff I really like. Give it a look-see right here. If you want to learn more about Kevin Connor, who as you read in the previous post is being inducted into the Photoshop Hall of Fame next week, he was interviewed last week on the Inside Digital Photo Radio podcast, and Kevin has some insightful comments on the future of digital imaging. You can listen to the interview online by clicking here. Yesterday Jason posted a comment here on the…

    It's a great Monday (ya know, for a Monday), and here's what's goin' on: Photoshop and Politics: check out this article from the UK's Telegraph, about how the French President's love handles were retouched away for a recent article (complete with before and after examples. Thanks to Carl for turning me on to this one). Check it out here. Want some Photoshop inspiration to kick off your Monday right? Check out the amazing retouching, CGI, and photography of Rocket Studios. This is just some amazing work (check out their different portfolios---you will be amazed and inspired for sure). Here's the link to RocketArt.com. Enjoy! More than 500 photographers will be learning the "New Digital Photography Workflow," using Lightroom and Photoshop CS3 with me this Thursday in Chicago at my Lightroom Live Tour. We're almost sold out---if you want to go, you can snag one…

    After I posted my field report on Friday about my experience with the Gitzo Traveler Tripod, I received a wave of posts, calls, and emails from other Traveler users and not a single one was having the leg slipping problems I was having. So my problem is either (a) operator error (meaning I'm doing something wrong), or (b) there's something wrong with my individual tripod, which admittedly could have been caused by "a." I've talked with the folks at Gitzo since then, and I'm sending the tripod back to Gitzo for their tech's to figure out what the problem is (I'm really hoping it's not operator error. I don't want to be known as the guy who couldn't figure out how to use his tripod). I also learned, after talking with Gitzo directly, that the Traveler doesn't use the same G-lock system as my…

    Here's another field report from my trip out West: I'll start with the Gitzo Traveler tripod. This is a kind of a weird review for me, because I've really become attached to this tripod to the extent that I wouldn't want to be without it. But on the other hand, it's got one thing that really bugs me, and it's so expensive that I'm not sure I can justify its cost. So, here's my report: The Traveler is just amazingly light (even lighter than I had imagined). It's fun to hand it to other photographers and watch them laugh and shake their heads at its light weight (even with a BH-40 ballhead attached). When collapsed, it's as small as it is light, and I can't imagine what Gitzo could do to make it smaller or lighter. It easily supports a heavy Nikon D2X and…
