Good morning everybody. I’m out here teaching a week-long hands-on workshop at the wonderful Santa Fe Workshops out in Santa Fe, New Mexico (if you haven’t been here, it’s an amazing learning experience, and I highly recommend it).

Here’s what’s goin’ on this morning:

  • There’s an interesting article about “How Photoshop Was Born” over at SiliconUser.com Web site. Check it out right here.
  • The day before my New York Lightroom seminar, I got to do a little shooting. I wish I had seen this New York Times article on “Where the pros go to shoot in New York” first, because I might have fit in a little more shooting time.
  • Photoshop Hall of Famer John Paul Caponigro has an exhibition of his New York, coming up August 4th-5th up in Cushin, Maine. For more info, visit his Website.
  • My buddy Jeff Revell turned me onto this major productivity killer. It’s a site with a very Photoshop-like color picker, and when you choose a color, it searches Flicker and then displays shots that match that color. It’s surprisngly cool, and will waste your time like nobody’s business. Here’s the link to mess up your day.

That’s it from here. Hope you all have a great Monday! :-)
