    Selfsm

    Open with aerial shot, Pacific Ocean greets surfers two hours before sunset, the beaches of Malibu golden, as camera soars down the coast to the Colonies. Crane shot down as neighbors start to gather in front of a townhome, camera stops on American flag dancing from the cool breeze mounted on the front of the garage, the fragrance of gardenias fills the air.

    Stedicam pans right slowly past convertible Porsche, widens to reveal hats, sunglasses, suntanned faces all looking. “What’s going on? Is everyone okay?” Camera tilts down to yellow Police Line Do Not Cross. Camera creeps back and turns, tight on brick pavers, moving slowly over walkway low to reveal Sheriff at doorway. As he opens the front door, the acrid metallic smell starts to overtake the gardenias. Nice upper class home, arched doorways, bullnosed corners, and an oak staircase.

    Camera starts to ascend the stairs, slowly pushing in on the framed pictures on the staircase wall. Wedding couple 10 years ago, beautiful bride, groom in his military dress blues, same couple on vacation looks like Hawaii, camera continues up the stairs, photo of same woman tanned on tennis court here in Malibu. As the camera reaches the top of the staircase widen to reveal the ceiling fan trying to move the acrid smell away.

    Sheriff acknowledges camera as we follow to arched doorway leading to bedroom. Camera tilts over bed to reveal husband sitting upright leaning on the headboard with a bloody mess behind his head, professional hit, three shots, one to the head and two to the chest. Camera widens revealing women’s lingerie on the edge of the bed. Camera pushes in and creeps along bed to floor gliding gently over the clothes as they lead us into the bathroom where the scent of coconut soap or shampoo softens the air.

    Snap to long slender legs lying in shower as blood swirls down drain  (think Psycho). Camera raises to show stunning blonde in shower. This is more gracious, one to the head and one to the chest right between her… WAIT, the woman in the photo was a brunette, and this one’s blonde. Something is wrong, dead wrong…”CUT!”

    Lots of stuff going on this Photoshop World week; here's what's up: Adobe releases Photoshop Elements 8 The latest version of Photoshop Elements has just been released (Elements in the consumer version of Adobe Photoshop), and our buddy Terry White has a write-up on all the new features on his Tech Blog. Here's the link. NOTE: Matt and I have already completed writing and updating our Photoshop Elements 8 Book for Digital Photographers, and it's at the publisher's now, so it should be in bookstores next month. :) My Tutorial on my EDP Technique is Now on the NAPP Member Site If you're a NAPP member, make sure you check out my new tutorial for NAPP members on how I did the post-processing on those Army Blackhawk shots I posted here a few weeks back (here's the link). They were processed using a single…

    It's Photoshop World week (Whoo Hoo!), and this time I've decided to try something different here on the blog for my Photoshop World coverage: I'm going to take iPhone photos each day with my iPhone, and post them directly here using an iPhone App. That way, I can give you a feel for what's going on at the show (including some behind the scenes stuff), without missing any days of blogging (which usually happens around Photoshop World because of my crazy schedule). We'll see how it goes, but I'll be doing my first test posts tomorrow, so make sure you check back all week long (including a special day of blogging on Saturday, the final day of the conference). Also, make sure you keep an eye on the official Photoshop World blog (link), which features four special Photoshop World Guest Bloggers live from the…

    If you're coming out to Photoshop World Las Vegas this week, I'm doing two live demos on the Expo floor that you're invited to check out. NOTE: Both of these are on the Expo floor, and both are during the two days we allow the public onto the show floor, so to get your free Expo Only ticket, click here. Here are the details: Elinchrom BXRI's Live Studio Shoot (at the Bogen Imaging Booth) 2:15 - 3:00 pm, Friday, Oct. 2nd I'll be showing how I use Elinchrom's inexpensive BXRI strobes in the studio, by doing a live shoot on the floor, showing a few of my favorite lighting set-ups, and how the whole thing comes together. Westcott Spiderlite Live Shoot at B&H Photo Theater 11:00 am, Saturday, Oct. 3rd You guys have heard me talk a lot about the Westcott Spiderlite daylight fluorescent…

    If you've been reading this blog for a while, you probably remember a post I did back in May of last year called "My Day with Jay" and it was about a remarkable day of learning I had walking the streets of New York City for a few hours with a true living legend of photography: Jay Maisel. (Here's the link in case you missed it). Here are some comments I got from that post: "Thanks for sharing your amazing experience. I wish I also had got a chance to walk with him and learn from him." "I can only echo everyone else’s comments (thanks for sharing about your experience with Jay–what a master!) and requests (please, pretty please, share a bit more about how to shoot in the city while being unobtrusive)! "As with some of the other posts, How do you shoot…
