    The rumor mill was right on the money----today (as expected) Nikon did introduce a new entry-level DSLR---the Nikon D-5000 (shown above; photos courtesy of Nikon), which includes the ability to shoot HD video (like the D90), but it also includes a new swivel Vari-angle screen on the back, along with "Subject Tracking autofocus which automatically locks onto a moving subject." Plus, according to Nikon, "The D5000’s D-Movie Mode allows users the exciting ability to record HD movie clips (1280 x 720) at a cinematic 24 frames per second with sound." Although the big buzz will be about the video features (your video writes to an SD card), the camera itself is no slouch, at 12.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, 11-point auto focus, 19-scene modes, built-in self cleaning function, ISO up to 6400 (no word yet on noise levels), 4 fps continous shooting, blah, blah, blah----you…

    If you've read this blog for any time now, you've heard my frustration about how I can't find a camera bag that works for me when shooting sports. In fact, many of you who are pro sports shooters have come up with a suggestions and after my last trip to Birmingham to shoot the Indy Test Weekend (where I had to leave my laptop at home due to carry-on restrictions), I was so cranked I finally had to make a move and find a solution. THE PROBLEM My problem is that I have to have three carry-ons, and of course the airlines will only allow two. My carry-ons are: My camera bag (with two bodies, my smaller lenses, battery chargers, etc.) The large lens case for my 200-400mm Nikon lens My laptop case (with powercord and other accessories). MY DREAM Ideally, one bag that…

    ....a beloved source of photographic inspiration and information, and one very cool blogger, The Pioneer Woman herself; Ree Drummond. If you've haven't checked out "The Pioneer Woman" blog, stop what you're doing and head there now (here's the link) and you'll see why she has built a cult-following, and why we wanted her to be a special guest blogger here on my blog (by the way, don't just check out her photography---take in the whole site). Then, make sure you're back here tomorrow to see what she has in store. I, for one, can't wait. See you then!

    I got a few comments on Friday asking how I did the "beauty style" headshot featured in Westcott's new Lighting catalog, and so I thought I'd show how to light it here. The shot you see in Westcott's catalog (which was taken with 2 Spiderlite TD-5---scroll down to the next post to see the shot), was taken before Brad started working with me, so unfortunately I don't have any production shots from that particular shoot. However, I recently did a shoot using that exact same "beauty look set-up" (the shot at the top of this post is from that shoot) but I used strobes instead, and luckily this time Brad was there to capture the production set-up, which is shown below. So, just to clarify: what you're seeing is the same exact position for the lights---which is what this post is all about---but in…

    Happy Friday Everybody. Here's what's up: My Images in The New 2009 Westcott Catalog First a big thank you to the FJ Westcott company---they featured two of my images (shown above) taken with their Spiderlite TD-5's in their new 2009 lighting catalog (you can download a PDF version of their new catalog right here). As a side note: I actually got to meet photographer Michael Green (the other photographer featured on the same "Pros" page in the catalog); at Photoshop World, and we got to hang out for a while. A really great guy! Anyway, thanks again to Westcott---it's truly an honor! Dave's Fix-It Challenge Dave Cross has launched a brand new feature on his blog, "Dave Cross Online" called "Dave's Thursday Fix-It Challenge," where he posts a "messed up" photo (for lack of a better term) and he lets you download the image…

    I know I kind of mentioned this in passing a few weeks back, but last week we officially announced the launch of my brand new Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks Tour, which is kicking off in Washington, DC on Friday, May 8th at the Washington Convention Center. If you're thinking of coming, I would definitely sign up now, because since we announced it last Thursday, this has been the fastest filling seminar in our 16-year history, and I want you to come spend the day with me (especially if you're a reader of this blog). This tour is all about Photoshop special effects, and creating the same looks you see in magazines, on TV, in Hollywood and on the Web, so I'm not going to be doing the standard stuff (like teaching color correction, or sharpening, or Camera Raw); instead this totally a day…
