    The spread above is from my book "The Digital Photography Book, Vol 2." It's my opener for the chapter on shooting portraits (click on it for a larger view), and the reason I'm mentioning it is that I found the shot below, showing the set-up for that shot (taken just moments after I took the shot above). I found it this weekend while I was searching for a completely different shot. The set-up photo above (click for a larger view) was taken by my buddy Dave Moser, and that's my buddy Terry White holding a Lastolite 30" TriGrip Diffuser (here's the link to it on B&H) in front of the window. The sunlight was pretty harsh and direct, so I had Terry hold the TriGrip in front of the direct light to soften, spread, and diffuse it, to give you the shot you see…

    Howdy. Hope everybody had a great weekend. Here's what's up! You've heard me talk about photographer/retoucher David Cuerdon numerous times here on the blog. Right after Photoshop World Las Vegas I got to talk to him about a new "Retouching Kit" he had put together, with included not only more advanced retouching techniques, but a specialized set of brushes, actions, textures, shapes, and color swatches for retouching that he uses together in a very clever way in his everyday work. Well, I'm happy to announce that not only were we able to convince David that he needs to be a part of KelbyTraining, but his Beauty & Retouching Kit online class (along with all the downloadable actions, brushes, and more) is now up online at KelbyTraining.com! (here's the link to see his sessions). I just saw somewhere that Amazon.com keeps a running list of…

    I'm not proud of what I've done. I hurt a lot of people's eardrums along the way. I had blond tips. I wore stage clothing that would make Duran Duran blush. But I was lucky. I got out. A lot of good people never did. OK, so why am I not only admitting that I spent years of my youth in a disco band, and worse yet, sharing pictures? Well, it has to do with a chapter intro in my new "Photoshop CS4 Book for Digital Photographers," and in that intro I stupidly mentioned that I would put a photo of some of my old bands on my blog. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but then I actually saw the photos, and then....well....I wish I had rewritten that intro. But what's done is done, and above you see four of…

    I wanted to share a photo of the incredible progress being made to finish the orphanage in Kenya that many of you here on the blog have helped to make happen. The roof is almost done (as seen in the photo above), and they've come so far, and we're so close. That's the good news. The bad news is; I've just learned that the construction has stopped. The global economy has affected their efforts dramatically, and their funding has basically run out. We have all come too far to let these children down who have no parents, no place to lay their heads at night, and don't know where their next meal is coming from. Two good friends of mine just returned from a 10-day visit to Spring of Hope Kenya, and their stories were absolutely heartbreaking, and the need there is so desperate.…

    Here's a few things to take us into the weekend: Photoshop Hall of Famer John Paul Caponigro has just announced three new Photoshop training DVDs, seen above (produced by Acme Education). The titles are: (1) Black & White Mastery (2) Photoshop Color Strategies, and (3) Photoshop Color Tools. All three are available for pre-order, and you can reserve yours now by clicking here. I ran across a photography blog this week that looks pretty cool. It's called "ProPhotoNut" and the author shares a number of interesting techniques, and posts some great images. If you've got a few minutes, check it out right here.  Here's another cool Holiday Deal (but it expires on December 15th, so you have to get on it pretty quick). If you buy a Ray Flash from ExpoImaging (the Ray Flash is a ring-flash attachment that turns your off-camera flash, like…

    This week on Photoshop User TV, we did our annual "Holiday Gear Guide Live!" where we share some of our picks for holiday gifts, including a bunch of cool gear that isn't in the printed or online versions of my gear guide. You can watch it here online, or in Apple's iTunes (where you can subscribe to it, and get each episode, free at this link). NOTE: On a completely unrelated note: Brad totally rocked his Guest Blog Spot yesterday. I knew Brad was a great assistant, and skilled photographer, but honestly, I had no idea he was such a great writer. I'm both impressed and a bit scared (I don't know whether to find him a photo agent, get him shooting some stock, or find him a book deal). Way to go, Boy Wonder!!!
