Hi everybody. Here’s what’s going on:

  • First, the photos above (taken by RC Concepcion) are from NAPP week at B&H Photo’s store in New York City earlier this week (the class shot is during Matt’s Lightroom class). During the lunch break between sessions the gang at B&H took me to the Katz Deli (made famous by the movie When Harry Met Sally), and I had the best Corned Beef Rubuen of my life. Thanks to everyone who came out to see my class, and to the folks at B&H for being such gracious hosts to Me, Matt, and RC during the week. You guys are the best. (P.S. Hi Mordy).
  • Speaking of that class; the SelectedPixels blog did “live blog coverage” during my B&H Photo class on my Photoshop Seven-Point System; you can check it out, and their photos, right here.
  • This is too cool: the Pixsylated blog did a very slick, step-by-step tutorial on how to “pimp” Joe McNally’s “The Moment It Clicks” and turn it into a spiral bound version. It’s surprisingly well done, and if you have the book, you’ve got to check this out (here’s that link).
  • Just a reminder; I’ll be in Hartford, CT next week (Tuesday, May 13th), as we bring the Photoshop CS3 Power Tour to town for the first time ever. If you haven’t signed up yet, here’s the link. Hope to see you there.
  • Photoshop World instructor and DV and Photoshop guru Richard Harrington has just released a new book on Apple’s Aperture 2. It’s coming out any day; here’s the link to preorder it from Barnes & Noble.com or Amazon.com. Also I’m sending a big congrats to Rich on posting the 100th episode of his Understanding Adobe Photoshop podcast (here’s the link to it).

That’s it for today. I’ve got some cool stuff coming up next week, including some photos from my day with Jay Maisel, details of my Grand Central Station photo shoot (including a surprise subject), and with any luck at all, a video I did on how to use the Westcott Spiderlites for a portrait shoot. Should be a fun week, with little or no sleep.

Have a great weekend everybody, and Happy Mother’s Day!!! :)
