Here’s a couple of quick news morsels:

  • I mentioned last week that the amazing Joe McNally (above) was out in Santa Fe, New Mexico doing an on-location online class for Kelby Training. Well, Joe wrote a post, and shows some of the images he made during that class over at his blog (here’s the link). Very cool stuff!
  • National Geographic has put out their “Call for Entries” for their annual “World in Focus” competition. If you win that one, I think you might have some serious bragging rights, eh? You can find the details right here.
  • Some new stuff I’m working with:
    1. The new Firewire 800 version of my beloved Drobo. I just made the switch this week (it was totally painless—it took all of 60 seconds).
    2. Nik Software’s new Silver Efex Pro Black & White plug-in for Photoshop. I haven’t had enough experience with it do a full-blown review yet, but OMG it kicks butt!!! I’ve never seen anything better for creating Black & White conversions. Scary stuff! More once I’ve had more time to play.

Well, that’s it for today. Don’t forget to stop by for tomorrow’s guest blog, and some live reports from Photoshop World later in the week. Have a good one!
