    I'm finishing up the update to, "The Photoshop Elements 7 Book for Digital Photographers," (co-authored with Matt Kloskowski) and each time I update a book, I always use all new photos throughout the book, which means I have to be shooting pretty much all the time (which gives me a great excuse to use with my wife, "Honey, it's for work." ;-) Anyway, I shot a number of new images just for the book, and I thought it would be cool to do an on-location sports portrait of some local kids who play Soccer (which is called football about every place else on the planet). My buddy Jim Workman is president of the local Soccer (football) league and he set-up a shoot for me with a family that had three talented, fun, and really sweet kids. This was my first location shoot with Brad…

    Howdy, folks. Here's what's up: Each week NAPP's Executive Director Larry Becker does a short video  show called NAPP News, and it covers industry news, stuff for NAPP members like new discount and offers, and just generally a bunch of stuff Photoshop freaks would be interested in. We've had a number of people ask that we also make it available as a downloadable video Podcast in Apple's iTunes, and well…now it's available as a downloadable podcast in iTunes. You can subscribe to it free right here or just watch the show right there in iTunes. (By the way; if you haven't checked out the show in a while, it has really grown tremendously, and Dave Cross has a very cute guest appearence in this week's show). This Sunday I'm shooting the Bucs vs. Raiders NFL game from the sidelines. This is a must-win game…

    Hi Gang. Hope everybody had a great weekend: here's what's up: I want to start with this week's blog schedule: I'm only going to be blogging today and tomorrow, and then I'm taking off Wed. (Christmas Eve) and the rest of the week until Monday. I took the week off from work, and I just want to spend some time with the kids, so I hope you'll join me here tomorrow, and then again next Monday. We're coming up on the entry deadline for the 4th annual Photoshop User Awards (the deadline is December 31, 2008). The grand prize winner will get an all-expense paid 5-day trip for two to Barcelona, Spain, and there are great prizes in a number of different categories. The contest is open to anyone, and if you've never entered a contest before---what are you waiting for? For all the…

    Hi gang. It's Friday (and Happy Hanukkah!); here's what's up: First, I have to thank my buddy Matt Kloskowski for his rockin' Guest Blog post on Wednesday. It was cool to see how many people needed to hear what Matt had to say (and it was something I hadn't heard anyone say publicly before. Way to go, Ski!). Alltop.com, which is an incredibly cool new news resource that aggregates a whole bunch of daily blogs by topic, just added a Photoshop section (I already visit their Photography category daily). What I love is; you can just hover your mouse over a headline, and it shows you the first paragraph or so. Hover your cursor over the blog's name, and it shows you a mini graphic of the blog. The whole thing is very cleverly done, with a slick, clean layout. You'll love it! Here's…

    My hat's off to my wonderful readers, who once again have shown your heart and compassion for those less fortunate. From your book sales on Tuesday alone, we raised over $10,075 dollars (€7,028 / £6,513) to help finish construction on the Orphanage in Kenya. I can't wait to show you the final shots when it's complete, and the kids are moving in for the first time---what a day that will be!!!!! This project has really touched the hearts of so many people, and I wanted to point out a few of my heroes from this week, like: Alan Allum, who had already pre-ordered the book, but went ahead and bought a 2nd copy for the cause. So did Joel from Jameson Studios. And Philip Doherty. And Ana Adams, who doesn't have CS4, isn't planning on upgrading anytime soon, but wanted to help so much…

    Time's running out to get Holiday gifts, so I thought I'd better share a few last minute gift ideas. Here's a pretty cool one for the photographer on your list who already has an off camera flash (Like a Nikon SB-800 or a Canon 580 EX II). It's Lastolite's EZYbox, which is a collapsible softbox that does a really sweet job of softening and spreading the light (in fact, I'm using it on a location shoot tomorrow!). The EZYbox comes with a flash mount bracket, and once you slide your flash onto its hotshoe, you put your flash through the hole in the back of the softbox (as shown above), and you're ready to go.  There are two things I dig about the EZYbox: It folds down really small, as seen in the example photos below, where I think Brad does just a stunning…
