    Yesterday I flew up to Atlanta for the day to shoot the Atlanta Braves vs. the Washington Nationals at Turner Field. Despite the sweltering heat (and the Braves loss), I had a blast shooting, and hanging out with Braves team photographer Paul Abell. I didn't really have time to go through all the shots, since my flight got home last night, but here are a few that caught my eye upon import in Lightroom (the shot of me above was taken by Paul with my iPhone). Click on any photo to see a larger view---I think they look much better larger, too) I also didn't have much time to really do anything to these except sharpen them and tweak the exposure a bit. I was shooting my Nikon D3, with a 200-400 f/4 VR lens, mounted on a Gitzo monopod. I shot wide open…

    Hi, Jack and Ed here. Seeing that there were a bunch of questions and comments from our Photoshop TV interviews in the last two weeks, we both thought we’d answer and clarify some of questions and comments. We’ll be going into more depth to some of these questions in our two Photoshop World sessions in Las Vegas. And we’ll also answer some in our upcoming column in PhotoshopUser Magazine.

    As far as the paper VA form, it is being phased out. Bummer. It’s easier than the online registration, in Jack’s opinion. If you have any VA short forms you can still use them or you can still request them to be mailed to you from the copyright office. Jack keeps a blank VA PDF form on his computer. But you can no longer download the VA form from the Copyright Office site (www.copyright.gov). The Copyright office will still process VA forms, but the Copyright Office is no longer making the VA forms easily available in an effort to encourage online filing.

    The eCO (Electronic Copyright Office) system, as the Copyright Office calls their online registration system, is improved and better than the first beta version used. But there is still have a problem with the number of files you can register if you are registering a very large number of files, as Jack usually does. Recently he registered 3,093 small compression JPEG files, that are compressed even more into a zip file, and they still total about 158mb. Jack’s upload rate and their pipe in, was going to take 39 minutes according to the timer. There is a time limit of

    World renowned Digital Artist (and Photoshop World instructor) Fay Sirkis has just released an in-depth DVD (from KelbyTraining.com) called “A Celebration of Art; Weddings, Portraits and Faces” If you haven't had the chance to learn from Fay, she's without a doubt one of the most amazing, passionate, and engaging teachers out there (her sessions at Photoshop World--standing room only, and her pre-conference workshop is always one of the first to sell-out). Her last record-breaking DVD took the digital painting world by storm, so make sure you check out Weddings, Portraits and Faces while they're still in stock (here's the link). By the way: NAPP members get $20.00 off. Besides Photoshop World, you can also catch Fay live at her "Summer Photo Painting Bootcamp" at the prestigious Lepp Institute of Digital Imaging in Los Osos, California, on August 18 thru 22nd. (NAPP members get 15%…

    First, a big thanks to my special guest blogger yesterday, the amazing Dave Cross, whose message really resonated with so many of you out there. Very cool stuff, my friend! Now, onto the News: One of my readers, Nicholas Van Staten, pointed out this AP article (which I'm pointing to in the Miami Herald), about how New York City has now adopted a clear set of rules for photographers and filmmakers about when they need to obtain permits to shoot on the sidewalks and streets of New York. Here's a link to the Herald (thanks Nicholas!). Great news: Since I posted those two copyright interviews with attorney Ed Greenberg and photographer's rights advocate Jack Reznicki, you all have posted loads of comments and follow-up questions, and Ed and Jack have heard ya. In fact, tomorrow I'll have a post directly from them answering some…

    A few weeks ago Scott invited me to start thinking about a topic for an appearance as guest blogger. I had come up with an idea that I’d been fleshing out when I read Stephen Johnson’s column last week. I’m telling you this to make it clear that my column is not in response to Stephen’s, nor it is intended as a rebuttal – if anything, it’s just interesting timing that my column follows Stephen’s. I think it’s also important to note that after reading Stephen’s column I chose not to read any of the comments since I wanted my thoughts to be mine alone, not influenced by the comments of others (although I certainly plan to go and read those comments once this column is published). So with that bit of background information (disclaimer?), here’s what I have in mind. In my travels…

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/QirLvas1CxU" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /] Here's an excerpt from this week's episode of Photoshop User TV; it's my exclusive interview with pro photographer, Photoshop World Instructor, and photographer's rights and copyright advocate Jack Reznicki. Jack gives the step-by-step instructions for how to register your work, and gives important details (including Photoshop settings) for submitting your images. It's some absolutely invaluable information, and a perfect follow-up to my interview last week with copyright attorney Ed Greenberg. Click the Play button above to watch the interview.
