    You guys have heard me talk about the Honl Flash Modifiers again and again here on the blog, in my Digital Photography Book Vol. 2, and in my annual Gonzo Holiday Gear Guide, and now you can see them in action. Commercial Photographer David Maynard stopped by the Kelby Training Studios, and I asked him if he'd do a live demo for my blog, so he took five minutes with my buddy Dave Cross to show us how the system works. If you're at all into off-camera flash, this will definitely be worth your time.

    It's not easy for American's to get to Cuba (don't get me started), but somehow Rick Sammon figured out a way to get down there, and he's getting some amazing shots, and he's blogging about it as well. Here's the link to Rick's blog----he's already started posting images (including some cool HDR stuff), and he's going to be posting images from his trip for the next week or so, and since we in the USA get so few glimpses of Cuba, I find it really captivating (plus the color, the people, and the way parts of it are stuck in time just make it one of the most amazing places to shoot in this part of the world). Rick invited me to sneak down there next year as he's leading a group of photographers on a trip to Cuba---I've always, always wanted to visit…

    Nikon introduced two new cameras today and some lenses: (1) The Nikon D300s As expected, it has lots of video features, including built-in HD video capabilities (720p), a stereo mic input, in-camera video editing features, auto-focus, and it has a dual card slot so you can shoot stills to a Compact Flash card, and send your video to an SD card. (Image shown above: courtesy of Nikon). On the still side: it shoots more frames per second (7 fps, or 8 with the battery grip); it has dedicated buttons for Live View (great for switching to video quickly) and the Info Screen (like some of the Nikon's recently released models), and a "Quiet Drive" mode for shooting in situations where you want the camera to make as little noise as possible (weddings, wildlife, etc.). Also, the D300s got the same Multi-Selector wheel as the…

    Hi gang: Here's what up: I love Bill Fortney If you read the comments posted about Bill Fortney's Guest Blog yesterday, it's clear to see that people love Bill Fortney (shown above with me at a workshop we taught together in the Great Smoky Mountains). They love his photography (which is amazing---you really need to see his portrfolio to appreciate it), but they love the man behind the camera just as much, and it really comes through in your comments. Thanks Bill---we love you! My MPIX Pro Journey OK, so last week I signed up for MPIX Pro (see the link here for details on why), and one part of the process is to upload five images to the MPIX Pro web site, then they print them as 8x10s and send you back printed proofs, so you can compare them with your monitor (and…

    Photography for the Joy of It! I’m coming up on my 40th anniversary as a photographer! What does that mean? Well you could say I was close, personal friends with George Eastman, but that was little further back! What it means is that for the past 40 years I’ve supported my family, made lots of friends and acquaintances, and seen many great things... And I’m even more excited to be a photographer than I was at the beginning! Let me share with you how to have a childlike enthusiasm about being a shooter, even at my advanced age! How old am I? Well let’s just say my social security number is 1! No I’m 63, but my doctor said, “With a body like your’s you should donate it to science fiction!” Photography has brought me three great things, people, places and, well photography itself!…

    After my trip to St. Lucia, I wanted to send the owners of the resort a canvas gallery wrap print of the pano I took from room during the workshop, to thank them for their hospitality. The full image is over 5-feet long, and MPIX only does Gallery Wraps up to 36", so I had to find someone to print it as a stretched gallery wrap at over 60 inches wide. RC has a similar-sized pano of the New York Skyline at night hanging on his office wall (he took it the night that Matt and I ran out of memory cards---here's that story), so I went to ask RC where he had it printed. He told me he had it made by Artistic Photo Canvas, and he raved about their quality and service, so I ordered two of them (one for the resort…
