    Hi Folks: I'm back in the saddle this week, after an almost entirely relaxing week (see the post above), and here's what's goin' on so far: Something I Missed Last Week In my first-look review of the XT-Explorer on-location battery pack last week, I kind of dinged the looks of the XT a bit, but Larry Becker pointed out something I hadn't realized, and that is that the Explorer XT actually comes with a fairly nice black nylon fitted “glove” that goes over the unit, along with a substantial shoulder strap. This would make a big difference in the overall look, and thus remove the ding. Sorry I missed that first time around. Corey Sells Out Toronto and Calgary in Advance The kid is hot!!! Our own boy wonder Corey Barker is taking our Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks Tour to Canada, and Toronto…

    I'm calling this a "First Look" review because I've only gotten one opportunity to really work with this pack, but since I did use it out in the field (I did an on-location shoot for a book project), I wanted to give you my first impressions. The Problem If you wanted to take studio lightning on location, you could do it but there two problems: 1. You had to buy special strobe heads that were designed to work with on-location battery packs 2. Good quality location kits are VERY expensive (you were lucky to get a decent single head and a battery pack for around $1,200). The Dream Use your own existing regular studio strobes and take them on location. Unfortunately, monoblocks (also called monolights) are strobes that are designed to be plugged right into the wall like any other appliance, so they don't…

    Hi Everybody. It's Thursday and that spells trouble, as I unveil my most embarrassing photo ever. This was me, just three years ago, tipping the scales at 315 lbs. The shot was taken in Paris where I was accepting an award for being the world's largest, I mean, best-selling author of computer books that year. Below is a shot of me now (taken at this past Boston Photoshop World, where I'm posed with my friends Corey Barker, Terry White, and RC Concepcion), after losing over 100 lbs. on a strict diet (I tell people it was a low calorie, low carb, low taste, low fun diet). Anyway, it took a long while, but I've kept it off for nearly two years now, and I feel dramatically better, and after having my yearly physical this past week, I was in such great health that I…

    First I want to thank Brad Moore and Scott Kelby for inviting me along as a guest blogger. I'm flattered and excited to share some random insights about what I do. I would like to inform that I am a young digital born photographer that has been practicing for three years. I will try and keep this concise since the last thing I want to do is bore anyone with quotes and clichés. If anyone has any technical questions about how I created an image please email me and I will get back to you with detailed specifics. photographer. The title of photographer can mean so many things these days that I have come to dislike the question of, "What do you do for a living?” Nothing is more difficult than trying to explain the randomness that is my job. I sometimes reply, "Yes,…

    Hi folks. It's Tuesday, and time for some news: The Best of Photoshop User TV, Volume 2 now on DVD We released Volume 2 of "The Best of Photoshop User TV" on DVD (shown above) and it's packed with the best tutorials and tips from the last couple of years on the air, and it features "The Photoshop Guys" (Me, Matt Kloskowski and Dave Cross). Besides the tons of tutorials, there's also a hilarious blooper reel (read as humiliating) and that alone is worth the price of the DVD (not really). However, it is filled with more than two hours of nothing but our best tutorials from the show, and you can order yours right here. Worldwide Photo Walk "Add Your City" Deadline This Thursday The deadline for applying to have a walk in your city is coming up this Thursday, June 18th, so…

    When we started planning this year's walk, I had a meeting with my staff about finding a way to use this worldwide event to help feed the children at the Springs of Hope Kenya Orphanage (an orphanage that the readers of this blog have adopted, and helped to build over the past year, and it's scheduled to open in just over a month). We were looking at different ideas, when out of the blue an email came in from Rob over at Towner Jones Photography with an incredible idea; create an official Photo Walk T-shirt and have the profits from the sale of the shirts go to "Springs of Hope, Kenya." As soon as I read his email, I knew this was it! Well, with lots of Rob's logistical help (and some clever design work from our own Nicole Procunier), we now have two official…
