    Just a few quick updates: Peachpit Press Rocks! First, I want to give some big love to the people who helped me launch this whole Photo Walk in the first place, and who have become one of the key forces behind this entire event, Peachpit Press (link). They are the publishers of all my books, and they're providing each Photo Walk leader with a free copy of my soon-to-be-released book, "The Digital Photography Book, Volume 3" and they're providing a copy to the winner of each local walk around the world. As things stand now, they'll be shipping more than 2,000 free copies of the book all around the world, and I just can't thank them enough for their gracious support, and for their overall commitment to just make great books. It's an honor to have them so involved in this event, and to…

    Hi Gang, and greetings from Savannah, Georgia where last night we kicked off the Great American Photo Workshop that I'm doing with Bill Fortney, . We've got 35 photographers here, and tonight we did slideshows and some presentations to get things rolling, and this morning we're heading out at 5:20 am for a sunrise shoot. Can't wait!!!! If I get anything decent, I'll post one tomorrow. First, before we even attempt to describe what's happening above, how 'bout some love for my man Vanelli, who came through with a wonderfully informative special guest blog and mini-tutorial yesterday. Way to go, V. You nailed it!!!! Now, to the photo above. That's me at 16; a junior in High School playing at a Pep Rally for our football team (so it had to be taken on a Friday). I was playing the coveted "Timbale/Bongo Combo" and…

    Before I begin I want to thank Scott for including me as one of the weekly guest bloggers on his blog. To say it’s an honor for being one of the 52 guests he has per year is an understatement! You wouldn’t really think that being a guest blogger for Scott is an intimidating task until you are given the opportunity. Only then does the truth of the matter come out! I myself, a man of many words, struggled with what I should talk about and who I should target my post for. Then I remembered the KISS method; Keep It Simple Silly. For the more complex theories and techniques, I will guide you to the experts that I pull my inspiration and knowledge from. Please don’t mistake this for name dropping for shameless plugs for my friends… As they say, “it takes a village to raise a child“. In this case the saying would be “a community of artists draws inspiration!

    Just like I did for my Egypt trip last November (link) I put together an Apple iPhoto book of some of my favorite shots from my trip, and I’ve included some of those pages below (click on them for a much larger view). This time I'm trying Apple's new Spiral-bound books (rather than the perfect-bound they've always offered in the past), and I'll let you know how they come out once I get a final printed copy (later this week). Of course, once again I did take lots of regular vacation photos and those are going into a separate iPhoto book for the family, and some of these photos will be included (but so will some of us posing in front of the leaning tower of Pisa and stuff like that). The images below were all taken with either a Nikon D-60, (which I…

    ....a man known to virtually anyone who has attended a Photoshop World Conference; it's photographer, educator, Photoshop freak, and the official un-official head of Security for Photoshop Midnight Madness and our official mascot, warm-up act, poet, trained killer, raconteur, and general bon vivant at large, the one....the only..... Vanelli! (also known as "Robert Vanelli" or "Mr. V" or just plain "V" to his friends and the various people he stalks). I first met "V" back in 1999 at the first Photoshop World conference ever. He saw me use a Martial Arts logo that I had designed in a project in one of my classes, and after the class he came up and introduced himself.  We soon found out that we had some mutual friends in the martial arts industry (we both were martial artists, but at much different levels. I was just another black…

    About six weeks ago my wife told me she had a surprise for me. She had planned a special 8-day family vacation trip to Italy's Tuscany region, and to celebrate my 5th year of being named the world's #1 bestselling author of computer and technology books, she had set up a special photo shoot in Italy that was (her words) going to "blow my mind." I so love this woman! :) Anyway, last week was the week for our vacation, and as you might expect---it was absolutely incredible, and yes---the photo shoot she set up for me totally blew my mind. More on that in a moment. Accompanying me on this trip was my entire family, my Brother Jeff, and my brother-in-law and his family. But first, let's look at how I left all my photo gear behind: It Started With Missing Our Flight…
