    Last Thursday I flew down to a very cool photo studio complex in Miami, near South Beach, for a photography training project I'm working on. Brad and I spent two days on location with a video crew filming behind the scenes footage of a bigger, more ambitious "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it" project (that's one of our models---Jerrid shown above---click on him for a much larger view). Above: Stevie during a one light shoot with a very powerful turbo fan, run by Brad. We actually did 19 different photo shoots, setting up---and taping---each lighting set-up from scratch over a two day period, and we filmed segments in three different studios and on location on Miami's South Beach. We used everything from one light, two lights, to three lights, and quite a bit of off-camera wireless flash, too. We did shoots with scrims, diffusers,…

    I've got a few more details for you about the Live Webcast of the big party/presentation/Photoshop love-fest happening this Thursday night (the 18th) in San Francisco celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Photoshop (if you hadn't heard about it, here's the link). Anyway, here's what I know so far: (1) You sign up here (it's free): http://www.photoshopuser.com/photoshop20th (2) The Live Webcast starts at 7:30 pm Pacific Time (10:30 EST). (3) There are some VERY special guests making an appearance that night. (4) Matt, Dave Cross, Corey, RC, and I will all be on stage showing cool Photoshop stuff, as well as Adobe's Julieanne Kost, Terry White, Russell Brown, and Adobe VP John Loiacono. (5) That's all I know. At least now anyway. Tomorrow, I may know more but hey, ya never know. That's it gang. I hope you can join us, because it's shaping up…

    Thanks to everybody who shared their views on the HDR issue last Friday (link). When it comes to HDR, it seems like most folks are on one side or the other, with very little middle ground----you either like it or you really, really hate it. One comment posted by a reader named Cory really stuck out to me. It's short and sweet, but says volumes. The biggest trigger point for most commenters seemed to be the amount or style of HDR tonemapping applied to a photo, and they seemed to feel that the over-processing was strictly to hide bad photographic technique. So, if a photographer creates an HDR photo, and even if they over-process it, does that somehow instantly mean that they're now a bad photographer? Not everybody that uses over-the-top HDR effects uses them as a crutch. They may just like they way…

    In honor of Photoshop's 20th Anniversary (this Thursday, Feb. 18th), the gang here at NAPP (the National Assn. of Photoshop Professionals) put together a Photoshop Trivia Quiz on Photoshop's history, what features were added when, and stuff like that. The quiz is just for fun, of course, but it's harder than you might think (I did "OK" on it, meaning I passed, but I didn't do well enough to brag about my score). If you've got a couple of minutes, click this link to take the quiz and see how you do. (NOTE: if you do take the quiz and get a great score---don't post a comment with your score. It'll only make me feel even worse). ;-)

    A week or so ago, by buddy Dave Cross had a great post called "The Debate about HDR", which talked about the strong feelings photographers have about HDR, both pro and con (here's the link). But what really caught my attention was a comment posted by one of his readers, because I’ve heard other photographers say the same thing, but none as succinctly as this reader’s comment: “I too use to love it...now, not so much...and for some reason, once I quickly identify the HDR effect, my opinion of the picture drops a notch." This reminds me of something my teenage son does. If it hears a song on the radio from one of his favorite new bands, and I tell him, "Oh, that's a remake of an old song from the 70s or 80s---no matter how much he liked that song---it now drops…

    Hey gang---that's right---it's back. I've snagged another deal on the amazing Drobo (the same units I use to back up my entire photo library). Here's the scoop: The deal is on the Drobo S & DroboPro (pictured above) models. People who buy during the "This Weekend Only Deal" (which ends Sunday at Midnight EST) and use "KELBY" as the special discount code, will get what the folks at Drobo have told me are "...the lowest prices we've ever offered on these products.... ever. But only for the weekend." Drobo S Deduct $100 off of these redlined prices http://bit.ly/1biNq2 DroboPro Deduct $250 off of these redlined prices http://bit.ly/CHDd So, they are offering a deal to the public, but then this deal is on top of that. Pretty sweet! If you're not familiar with Drobo yet, and why just about every pro photographer I know has…
