Hi Everybody: I had the best intentions of writing the blog every day while I'm out here in Hawaii, but......well....you've seen the results (or lack thereof), so I've decided to go ahead and take the rest of this week off just to chill and spend time with my family. However, I will be back on Monday in my full daily blogging glory, and I've got lots to share next week, so I hope you'll join me then. Have a great week everybody and we'll see you next week. :) Aloha and Mahalo! -Scott
I have to say, I am absolutely blown away, humbled, and just flat out thrilled at the thoughtful, clever, and creative comments that were posted after my article on why nobody reads the introduction of books (and why it's so important to me that they do). The comments were so good in fact, that I wound up rewriting (at the last minute), the entire introduction section incorporating ideas directly from those comments. As hard as it was to rewrite and retool part of the book at the very last minute; it was 100% worth it. Tomorrow (Tuesday) I'm going to outline how I changed the Intro section, and I hope to list the names of those people who will be getting a signed copy of the book thanks to their ideas being chosen, and Ill post the winner of the free Full Conference pass…
Aloha and Happy Monday from the beautiful shores of Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii. My Lightroom Tour is today, and I'm equally exicted and honored to have my buddy Joe McNally (one of the world's top shooters), here with me, and today he'll be doing the live shoot during the day, and well...I'm really psyched (of course, being in Hawaii isn't half bad either). ;-) I hope to have a report, with some photos from my brand new Nikon D300, to post tomorrow. Hope to see you here in Honolulu! :) Mahalo and Aloha, -Scott
The Picture Archive Council of America has a free PowerPoint slide presentation you can download and use in help educating people in understanding, and honoring copyright law. It's very well done, straight to the point (complete with photographic examples), and it's an ideal tool for helping stressing the importance of honoring a photographer's copyright, why copyright laws exist, how to protect your work, and more. You can download it right here (Kudos to Design Tool Monthly for turning me on to this great resource).
