    So, Terry White and I on the phone talking about yesterday's post, and more specifically about how software is really developed today---all software, whether it comes from Apple or Microsoft or whomever. Terry had the perfect analogy to describe how it is from our, the end users, perspective: So you've been waiting for this new restaurant to open for 12 to 18 months, and when it finally opens you head right down there. They seat you and hand you a menu with all these great dishes on it, but after a few minutes, they come and take the menu out of your hands and set down your food. You ask the waiter, "What's this?" He says, "This is your dinner." And you say, "But I didn't order this," and he says "We decided this is what you want." So, you go ahead and taste…

    Here's a few nuggets to take us into the weekend: Don't forget: This Sunday (June 1st) is Jeff Revell's Georgetown Photo Walk (held in the Georgetown area of Washington DC), and everyone's invited to join Jeff and company for this social shooting event. The walk lasts two hours (starting at 10:00 am), and afterward (in a fine PhotoWalk tradition), everyone meets up a local restaurant to hang out, do some chimping, and catch a yummy lunch. Check out PhotoWalkPro.com for all the details (don't be one of those folks who on Monday say, "Aw man---I shudda gone!") My buddy, and Photoshop User TV co-host Matt Kloskowski is teaching a free class in Philly next Tuesday, June 3rd at the Philadelphia Downtown Marriott, as part of the Creative Suite Symposium, (Sponsored by CDW and Adobe Systems). There are morning, lunch, and afternoon sessions (Matt's teaching…

    Every time a new version of Photoshop or Lightroom comes out, we (the community of users) get a number of features that make our lives more fun, or make us more productive, or sometimes both. But, of course, every time a new version of either one comes out, there are always those cries of "Why didn't Adobe add [fill in the blank]" or, "I can't believe we still don't have [fill in the blank]." Unfortunately (for me anyway), I'm usually one of the ones whining the loudest about a feature that didn't make it, or a feature that was changed (which is why Adobe often cringes when I call). But my buddy Terry White and I were talking recently, and Terry floated an idea that I honestly believe would change all this, and finally give us exactly what we want in the next versions…

    Remember a few weeks ago when Matt, RC, and I got a permit to shoot with tripods (gasp!) inside Grand Central Station in New York City? Well, RC had a video camera, and we did a short video clip during the shoot about "the permit" and how getting one affected our shoot. Click on the video below to see what happened (Thanks to my buddy RC Concepcion for shooting and editing the video).

    I’m officially nervous. Guest blog for Scott Kelby? Hmmmm. Okay, why be nervous? I’ll just go ahead and pretend I’m writing for my blog. No problem, just type away. But here’s the deal. Scott’s blog is Broadway, man; lights, limos, red carpet, strobes flashing, throngs of swells mingling by the thousands!

    My blog is community theater in Piscataway. (Apologies to theater goers in Piscataway… I probably couldn’t open there, either.)

    Scott’s is also a very forward looking blog. Thoughts, notions, products, gear, philosophy, approach… so much of it is about what is happening now, or about to happen, in our industry. It’s pretty cool, and it’s a must read way station for all those trying to stay afloat in the fast moving digital rapids. Scott, in short, is on top of it all.

    So this is quite an honor, to be sure. It got me to thinking, here in my cave, Mac firmly gripped in my paws, looking for the “on” button, about what got me here. The simple answer is that I’ve been a photographer for 30 years. Lots of jobs, peaks, valleys, nicks, cuts and bruises, bad pictures, some good ones, crazy jobs, lousy hotels, bumpy flights, missed connections, and, like a battered suitcase, I tumbled off the baggage belt, here.

    A career in photography is a journey without a destination. No idea where the road goes. But I have a notion about where it started, and from the panoramic future gazing promontory known as Photoshop Insider, I thought I’d look, like, backwards. (Threw the “like” in there. I’ve got a teenage daughter.)

    Back to the work that has gone before. Not that I’m disinterested in current work. There’s a ton of great work being done, from the battlefield shooters of Iraq to the Hollywood gang filling the glossy pages of Vanity Fair. But for now, I’m talking about work that…

    Friday's post about backing up your computer really struck a chord with a lot of readers, and I got a number of comments, and emails, asking if I would share my back-up strategy (which drives I use, how and when I back-up, etc.), so....here we go! 1. Backing Up My Photos On-Location You only have to have a memory card fail once to become a freak about backing up your photos on location, so I might sound a little overly cautious, but its only because I've been burned. Here's what I do: Once I fill a memory card (and by the way; I don't shoot until every last shot is used because of card-corruption horror stories I've heard, so I stop one or two short of how many how camera says I have left), I pop the card out of my camera into an…
