      Hey gang: I'm totally psyched to announce that a whole new version of my Lightroom book, "The Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers" (From New Riders Press), is now available for preorder. I had planned on just doing an update of the book, and including the new features of Lightroom 2, but....well...I wound up rewriting the whole book from scratch (well, at least 95% of it. There's probably a paragraph or two still left over, but not much). Here's the thing: so much has changed since Lightroom 1 (well, there was Lightroom, then version 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 and now 2), but more than that, I've trained literally thousands of Lightroom users since I wrote that book, and I've learned first hand the challenges, questions, concerns, and workflow issues that today's Lightroom users face, and I've incorporated that right into the book. Plus,…

    It's Thursday, and that's means it's time for "news stuffage!" First, thanks to my buddy Terry White for yesterday's guest blog post which garnered lots of love from my readers. Had I known the interest in Lightroom to iPhoto uploading was as big as it was, I would've written a book on it by now (totally kidding). ;-) Here's what up: This week we had Adobe Photoshop Product Manager Bryan Hughes as an in-studio guest on Photoshop User TV, and we talked with Bryan about the advantages of converting your files to DNG vs. just working with the Raw image files. Very interest stuffing (here's the link to watch it online). USA Today ran an article yesterday called "Attention to lighting can make a huge difference in your photos" and in the article they asked me for five tips about light and shooting outdoors…

    Great news! John Loiacono, Adobe's Senior Vice President of Creative Solutions, will be the featured keynote presenter at the opening keynote at Photoshop World Las Vegas (the morning of September 4th). Johnny L. (as he's known to friends, and previous Photoshop World keynote crowds) is definitely not "a suit" (if you've ever seen one of his presentations, you know he's totally "one of us"), and he's a very engaging, and downright fun presenter to watch. But all that aside, one of the of the things I like best about having Johnny L. as our featured presenter is that he uses Photoshop World as a platform to either launch a new Adobe product (like he did when he launched the Lightroom 2 Public Beta at Photoshop World in Orlando), or he uses it to give the crowd on hand a sneak peak at some unreleased…

    Digital Photographers and the iPhone/iPod touch More and more photographers I know are now carrying around their portfolios in their pockets. The iPhone and iPod touch makes for a perfect portable pocket sized slideshow device. At a minimum you have 8GB's of space, which is quite a bit for small JPEGs. Also, if you were only showing your best work, you would only need to show your best 20-24 shots anyway. So storage space is not really a concern. Also these devices have really nice large 4" displays. The color is fantastic and the brightness is great. I not only use my iPhone to show off my portfolio, but I also don"t hesitate to whip it out (the iPhone of course) when people ask me "how's the family doing?" I have the latest shots of my two girls on it all times. I also…

    ...one of my very favorite people in the whole world. He's the co-author of two of my books, he's the host of "The Creative Suite Podcast", his official title at Adobe is Director, Creative Pro Technical Sales, North America, he's a photographer, designer, Photoshop World Instructor, he's produces the popular "Terry's Tech Blog," and he's one of the greatest, most genuine, most gracious, and most humble guys you'll ever meet...Terry White. Make sure you check back tomorrow to catch Terry's post, which I am told may include a video as well (ya know those tech guys---never satisfied with just words and pictures alone). ;-)

    You know how as photographers we go through phases with our gear? For example, I go through phases where if I go to a shoot and I don't have at least three big lenses, two camera bags, three cases of lights and a tripod that weighs more than my kids, I feel like I'm out there naked. Well, right now for me, the pendulum has swung completely the other way. Now I'm in my "shoot light" phase, where I'm shooting with just one lens if I can get away with it, a very lightweight (but sturdy), tripod and if I have to bring lights, I want to bring one; preferably a off camera flash, like a Nikon SB-800. OK, maybe two SB-800s, but if I have to bring lightstands, they have to weight less than my daughter's stuffed animals. That's why when I went…
