    …is San Diego's based live concert photographer, and author of the Sony A700 Digital Field Guide (link), Alan Hess. I first met Alan when I was doing some tutorials for the Lexar Pro Corner web site, and being a musician, I was instantly drawn to his concert photography (though he does a wide range of topics---not just concerts). Alan's also a frequent commenter here on the blog, and is one of the first to jump in to answers questions and give advice to other readers, which I think says a lot about him. He's got a very cool blog post for tomorrow, and it goes in a totally different direction than previous Guest Bloggers, which is one of the things I enjoy most ---that each brings their own style and ideas, so make sure you check back tomorrow. In the meantime, check out Alan's…

    On Sunday I headed up to Chicago to shoot the Eagles/Bears NFL game at Soldier field (a few shots from the game are below). I'm totally beat (and sore, and tired), so I didn't have time to do anything decent to them---I just ran them through Lightroom and well, here they are. SPECS: All the shots were taken with a Nikon D700, at (are you ready for this), 4,000 ISO. I had to shoot at that high an ISO because of the stadium lights (it's not nearly as bright as you'd think) to get my shutter speed up to at least 1/1000 of a second so I could freeze the action (though a number of times it dipped down to 1/800 of a second). But I gotta tell you----the noise is so minimal that I am just astonished. In most cases, you have to…

    I've been seeing a lot of comments on the blog this week that I wanted to address, but when I was talking about it to my buddy Matt Kloskowski (who's getting similar comments on his blog), he suggested that we do a short video, rather than writing the 5,000 words it would take to address both the "Lightroom 2 vs. CS4" and my and Matt's carefully orchestrated coverup of the problems some people have been having with Lightroom 2, so to round out this week, here's a video clip, created exclusively for you guys, on both of these topics. View the video

      Here's a link to a video Matt and I did a month or so ago, which talks about the differences between Lightroom, and using the Bridge and Camera Raw. It's at NAPP's public Lightroom Learning Center, and when you follow this link right here, make sure you click on "Lightroom vs. Photoshop Discussion" in the video list on the right side of the window.

    I gotta tell ya, people are lovin' that free "Instant JPEG from Raw" utility Michael Tapes and Imagenomic created! Look at some of these comments posted by readers on Wednesday: "Works fantastic, Now I can shoot just in RAW instead of RAW+JPEG and get more pictures on the cards. It makes life alot easier and I can hand out the smaller sized JPEG´s much faster. Thanks for a great tool!" "Great program and it works so fast that I thought it was NOT working. You made my day." "THANK YOU!!! you’ve literally saved me! " "Wonderful! Literally dropped my jaw after the first extract. I’ve already processed about 20 directories. THANK YOU!" "It works just fantastic!. The clearest jpegs I have seen after first shooting in raw, and then converting them." "Wow, this is really useful! Big thanks Michael and Scott. I was exporting…
