    Hi Gang: I'm happy to announce that the weekly show for DSLR Shooters: D-Town TV (hosted by me and Matt Kloskowski) is back for Season 3 (right on time, which is somewhat a miracle unto itself), and our first episode is packed to the gills with cool new stuff. Here's what's in the first episode of Season 3: - I kick things off with three great tips for beginners on getting sharp shots in low light situations - Moose Peterson is back to show us how to use a gimbal tripod head for shooting moving subjects - Matt talks about the mode and setting switches on both Canon and Nikon 70-200mm lenses - Top Pro Wedding photographer Cliff Mautner shows a tip for getting great edge lighting on location - I share a really handy accessory for you off-camera flash shooters, called "Sticky Filters"…

    ....none other than Jeremy Cowart. I totally dig Jeremy's work (and I also love the way he has his portfolio categorized into the types of shots by their style --- Mood, Light, Texture, Atmosphere [my favorite] -- rather than the usual categories we see day in, day out). Besides his amazing work, I'm equally impressed with the kind of person he is, and how he gives back (like what he's done with Help Portrait), and while I can't wait to see what he has in store for us tomorrow (it's truly an honor to have him back once again as a guest blogger). Why don't we all take a quick moment right now to jump over to his portfolio, and check out his work? It'll get you in the mood for tomorrow (and it will make you want to grab your camera and start…

    OK, this totally has nothing to do with Photoshop or Photography, but my buddy Scott Diussa sent me a link to the band Rock Sugar, and they are a band of middle-aged rockers who fuse (mash-up) classic rock songs from the 80s with pop songs from the 80s, but the way they do it absolutely kicks butt! The band is really talented (the lead singer is off the hook), so it's not just how how cleverly they blended the two songs, but their performance is on the money, and now everybody at NAPP HQ is listening to Rock Sugar all day (a tremendous productivity killer). I put their video below, which is a mash-up of Metallica's Enter Sandman mixed with Journey's "Don't Stop Believing," which they call "Don't Stop the Sandman" You just gotta hear it for yourself. Great video, great guitar work, great…

    I snapped the shot above with my iPhone after a box of foreign translations of my books came in to our offices a few weeks back, and I just ran across it while looking through my Camera Roll (that's what it's called on an iPhone anyway). I get such a kick out of seeing how they've laid out these translated versions, because in most cases the size is different (often times they're hard cover as well), and they often completely redesign in insides and in particular the front cover to suit their market (I complain about them redoing the cover, but my publisher swears that each market feels like they know the kind of cover that appeals to their demographic, so I let it go, but it still kind of drives me crazy). What's in the Stack Taking a quick look at the stack,…

    Yup, I just popped open another fresh can of wholesome Friday goodness. Here's what's inside: 10 Things That Will Do More For Your Photography... I thought this short article was really well written, and there's some great thought-provoking and inspiring stuff it in for the market we're dealing with now. Well worth a stop by over at Lighting-Essentials.  (Here's the link). Also, while you're there, don't miss his article: "You know that guy...I hate that guy. Am I somehow more successful now?" You will love it (or really, really, not. Gene, make sure you read this one!). Here's the link . Preparing Your Prints for Framing I ran across a free PDF from Epson on how to prep your prints for framing. Some great info here (and it's free). Here's the link. Are you comin' to see me in Atlanta? I hope so. I'm…

    First off, it is an honor to be featured on such a great photography blog. As long-time readers, we've often enjoyed reading the "Weekly Guest Blogger" feature so it's a bit surreal to be taking part. About a year ago, we all came together (from various freelance backgrounds) with a strong desire to share our strengths in close community with one another. The idea behind us being a "collective" is that we believe that together we can create work at a higher caliber than we could as individuals.  We all fill different roles at different times, which is something that helps us grow individually and as a functioning unit. It is a spectacular feeling to share in both the struggles and triumphs with people who you not only consider artistic peers, but friends as well. Here's a video that walks through a recent shoot…
