    I'm up in Boston for the kick-off of my new one-day workshop called "Photoshop For Digital Photographers," but while I'm teaching today, I wanted to give you guys a quick highlights/wrap-up of the Photo Plus Expo which wrapped up on Saturday in New York. (The photo above [click for much larger view]  was taken during my Saturday presentation at Nikon's main stage----photo by Rafael "RC" Concepcion). The Buzz The big buzz was about digital video on DSLRs, and editing that video. I saw a number of vendors selling different mounts and stedicam-like brackets for getting smooth hand-held HD video from DSLRs, and everybody was talking video (which is weird for a photo tradeshow). Lightroom 3 was getting some buzz, but since Adobe wasn't exhibiting, a lot of the buzz was "Where's Adobe?" Nikon's D3s and Canon's 7D were both getting a lot of buzz,…

    Even though NAPP is "The National Assn. of Photoshop Professionals," not only do we have thousands of non-pro members worldwide, every day we have lots of people who join NAPP that are absolutely brand new to Photoshop----total beginners------and they've joined NAPP to learn how to get their arms around this amazing program (a lot of these brand new users are friends of existing NAPP members). That's why we create a special section of the NAPP member website just for brand new Photoshop users to help get them up to speed fast. Their guide is NAPP's own Senior Curriculum Director Dave Cross, and Dave has put together a series of beginner training videos that not only teach these new members how to use Photoshop from the ground up; he also shows them all the different areas of NAPP that are specifically for them (from beginner's…

    WOW---what a first day up here in New York. My day started at 10:15 am with a presentation in Nikon's booth about my photography called "The Power of Color." (photo above by Raphael "RC" Concepcion). After my presentation for Nikon, I headed over to the Nik Software booth to unveil the brand new version of their award-winning Photoshop plug-in, Viveza 2. I have to say---it is one absolutely amazing plug-in. They really took Viveza to a whole new level with this update, and it was both an honor, and really exciting, to be the first to show off this amazing new technology. The Show Floor I got to check out a few booths this morning. Hoodman showed me a new gadget for photographers who wear glasses, and it was very clever. I saw the Think Tank booth but didn't get by to do any…

    We taped an episode of Photoshop User TV while we were at Photoshop World, and it went "live" this week over at PhotoshopUserTV.com (and on the iTunes Store). Since we had a hard time getting Matt, Dave, and I together at the same time, we each did our own mini-tours of the Expo floor; stopping by some of our favorite booths, and generally just giving you a look at what it's like on the Expo floor. You can watch the episode online right here. NEW SEASON UPDATE: The new set is now far enough along now that we've picked a launch date to kick off the new season of Photoshop User TV----it's set to premiere on Monday, November 9th, with our new set, new format, and more Photoshop tips, tricks, and techniques than ever! Hope you'll tune in to catch the new show.

    Yup---it's true! Lightroom 3 is here! (Well, the free public beta version is here, anyway). Of course to get you up to speed fast on all the cool new goodies in Beta 3, NAPP (The National Assn. of Photoshop Professionals) has put together a Lightroom 3 Beta Learning Center, with videos from Matt Kloskowski and me, along with articles and info from RC Concepcion, and an exclusive video interview with Lightroom Product Manager Tom Hogarty. Also, later today look for Matt's "Lightroom 3 Beta Power Session" full training class to go live on Kelby Training, which teaches all the new features in depth, and how they relate to, and update your current Lightroom workflow. Now, all that being said---just remember---this is a pre-release Beta testing version, so it's far from the final finished product (if history is any indicator, when the real version ships,…

    Hello photographers and people frequenting this blog stalking Scott Kelby. My name is Matt Lehman. I’m a graphic designer at CMT (Country Music Television in the family of MTV Networks), and I have a small freelance gig called Invisible Associates. Here’s my guest blog. In the immortal words of Ron Burgundy, “I don’t know how to put this, but I’m kind of a big deal.” Minds will be blown. Poverty will be eradicated. Roofs will most definitely be raised (figuratively speaking, like when you push your hands up and down in the air). Yay photography!

    I’m not a photographer in any way. I’m afraid of cameras really. They’re expensive. They break. Worst of all, there’s too much to learn… focusing, aperture-ness, ISO-ness, lenses, shutter speed, ambient light, other fancy words, etc. I took a photography class in college, and it was miserable. Most of my pictures involved me lying on the ground and tilting my camera at what I perceived to be an avant garde angle. Hey look, I just took a titled shot of that fire hydrant! Some things are in focus and some aren’t! Then I had to spend three hours in the darkroom to confirm that yep, these pictures are indeed pathetic. So I continued down the super-lucrative path I was on: the yellow brick road known as graphic design and illustration.

    I love design and illustration despite the fact that the names connote some guy sitting at a drafting table with an airbrush kit turning around to give someone an affirming thumbs up. In a sweater vest. And a mustache. And not the ironically cool kind of mustache that’s currently en vogue. Photography. Just the name alone sounds so much cooler. In college, people who had earrings and ponytails and played in bands were photography majors. It was up there with actor, circus performer, or mime in “careers parents don’t want their kids to select.” There was and is a sexiness to photography. Remember the Lamborghini Trapper Keepers? Someone had to shoot that goodness.
