    This week, Westcott introduced the brightest fluorescent bulbs yet for their popular Spiderlite TD-5 studio lights. I got a chance to work with these in the past few weeks, and these new brighter bulbs just make a huge difference (they give you at least a full-stop more light). The bulbs themselves are only about 30% larger in size, and they're now 50-watts each (where the old bulbs were just 30 watts). So, when you get a 5-pack of their lamps, here's what you get: (4) 50-watt Fluorescent lamps (equivalent of 200 watts each), plus.... (1) 20-watt Fluorescent lamp (the modeling light) For a total of 900 watts of power. The 5-pack of bulbs above sell for around $179 (retail), and a single lamp goes for around $45. You can learn more about them, and Westcott's Spiderlite kits by clicking here. I believe Westcott has…

    Just one more day to the history-making Worldwide PhotoWalk, and I am just totally excited!!! We now have nearly 8,000 people signed up for the walk, and we're working hard to help our leaders make the most of their walks. My Gear for the Walk I've had a few questions about what equipment I'll be taking for my walk, and I thought I go ahead and answer it here. For my walk (in Dunedin, Florida), I'm taking my Nikon D300 with just one lens; my 18-200mm VR f/3.5-5.6 lens. The reason I'm taking my D300 (rather than my D3 or D700) is because I just want to use one lightweight lens the whole time, that gives me both wide angle, portrait, and a long zoom in one. If I use that lens on the D700 or D3, it will crop my image down to…

    First, thanks to everyone who commented on my "accidental guest blog" yesterday. It was nice to see that I'm not the only one who has experienced it, and I'm not the only one it drives crazy. :) Now, onto the news: We're just TWO days away from my Worldwide Photo Walk, and as I write this we have 7,297 people signed up to walk on Saturday. I am just blown away!!! Hey---it's not too late to join us (here's the link to see if there's a city hosting a walk near you). Hope you can make it! On a related note; participants who are walking in San Jose, California probably don't realize it, but their walk leader, Frederick Johnson, just happens to be Adobe's Lighroom Sr. Product Marketing Manager – Professional Photography (he's also the guy who ponied up the 10 copies of Lightroom…

    I know---I'm not a guest. But I looked at my calendar yesterday afternoon to see who I had scheduled as my guest for "Special Guest Blog Wednesday" and it was completely blank. I'm really not that surprised, because as my wife will attest; I have the memory retention of a hamster, and I guess I just completely forgot to get line up a guest blogger for today. So, you're stuck with me today as your guest blogger, but next week I'll have an actual special guest, so at least it won't happen two weeks in a row. An Odd Admission From A Book Author This may sound kind of weird coming from a guy who makes his living writing books, but I don't think there's any method of learning that compares with being a part of a live seminar or workshop. As good as…

    If you're not familiar with any of the "P-series," (technically Epson calls these "Multimedia Viewers" because they play videos and music), they're part portable hard drive for safely backing up your memory cards on location, part photo-viewer with a big bright screen, and part in-the-field laptop replacement, because you can create collections, do slideshows with a music background; you can sort and rate your images on them, and a half dozen other things in a size so small you can fit it in your camera bag. I've been using these "P's" since there was a P-2000 and I take one on every location shoot without fail, as it's become an important part of my workflow. Anyway, I got to play around with the P-7000 quite a bit this past week, and I wanted to give you a quick review on what's new, and why…
