    If you've been to one of my seminars in the past couple of years, you've heard me preach about how critical it is to back up your photos, and how I set Lightroom to automatically back up a 2nd copy of everything I import to a separate hard disk. I had been using two 500 GB LaCie hard discs for my at home backup until one of the LaCie's died (though I suspect it's death was aided by some amount of physical interaction with a small child whilst I was away, but I can't prove that). You also might remember me switching to a Drobo earlier this year for all my at home backup (Drobo is a very clever, well designed robotic backup device that constantly monitors a set of four hard disks to make sure they stay healthy, and if something goes wrong…

    The day before my Photoshop CS3 Power Tour seminar in New York City last week, I rented a photography studio in Manhattan that is set-up to look like a trendy New York loft. It was completely furnished with 150 set pieces that were arranged into different rooms, for different looks. I hired two professional male models and a female model for some location shots for the book I'm working on: Volume 2 of "The Digital Photography Book," (This isn't an update of the first book; this is a totally new book that picks up where the last book left off, and adds chapters on off-camera flash, building a studio from scratch, and a lot more). Anyway, here are a few shots from that shoot [click on any of the bottom three for a larger view]. These aren't shots that will actually make it into…

    Here are three quick things to get your week started off right: (1) Check out the incredibly slick work of photographer Andrew Zuckerman. I learned about his work from a comment posted last week here on the blog from one of my readers; Frank Weichmann, and I have to agree with Frank; Andrews stuff is just amazing (make sure you see his animals gallery). Very unique stuff! (here's the link) (2) I found this link on either CNN or FoxNews.com this weekend; it's called "25 photos taken at exactly the right time" and you'll get a kick out of it. (here's that link) (3) Lastly, a student at my NYC seminar last week has started a 10-part review of my seminar at his (her?) blog: The Ivory Hut. Besides the review (just part 1 has been posted thus far), there's some nice photography, poetry,…

    It's here: the long awaited, unabated, triangulated, amalgamated, 2nd annual edition of Scott's Gonzo Holiday Gear Guide! It's the cover story (and a 10-page feature spread) appearing in the new issue of Layers Magazine (the how-to magazine for everything Adobe). This year's expanded in-depth guide includes nothing but the coolest, personally hand-picked gear for the photography and Photoshop freak on your holiday list. PLUS, there's also a Special Online Version, with all the same wholesome goodness as the printed guide (it's carbonated, hyphenated, alienated, and slightly perforated), and you can check it out right here at Layers Magazine's Website. Happy Holiday Shopping Everybody!

    Here's what happening as we wrap up the week: This is going to sound bad, but it's not what it sounds like: It's a cool new blog with lots of info on camera gear, and photography related stuff, and despite it's name "CameraPorn.net" after more than four and a half hours of searching I was not able to find even one shot of naked, nudie, nakedness on the entire site, which as you know is very disappointing (totally, kidding there). There's a story behind why they chose that "unusual" name, but I imagine one of two things will happen with it: (a) they'll become a huge success because of it, or (b) Not, then hopefully they'll change their name to something that really reflects the quality and content of what they're doing. That notwithstanding, I think it's pretty cool blog; check it out right…

    I have a quick Lightroom maintenance routine for you today (it only takes a few minutes). Besides ensuring the health and maintenance of Lightroom, it might just free up some serious drive space for you (I got back around 26 Gig myself). (1) The first thing to do today is Back-up your Lightroom Catalog. I know many of you do this on a regular basis (in which case #2 is for you), but I talk to people almost daily who have never backed up. The process is so easy, and so automatic, that there's no excuse not to. You set Lightroom to do an automatic backup by going to Lightroom's preferences, under the General Tab. At the bottom of this window, click on the "Catalog Settings" button and the window you see above will appear. There you'll find a pop-up menu where you can…
