Tuesday News Stuff
Hi Gang. Here’s what’s up:
Surprise: The P-7000 Still Has Its Fans
OK, first I have to admit; I was a bit surprised to see that the Epson P-7000 has more fans (and with it more life) than I thought it did. I thought this would be a slam dunk for the iPad, since it’s so much more than just a storage device, but the P-series still resonates with some photographers. Perhaps the thing that surprised me the most was that so many people pegged the increased storage size as a big advantage for the Epson. It’s rare that I ever shoot 10GB in a single day, even when covering a sporting event, so a 64GB iPad would cover me for literally days before I had to back-up to my laptop, so that caught me off guard. Thanks to everyone who shared their comments yesterday, because now I’m having to reconsider giving my P-7000 the boot.
Flash Comes To The iPhone. No, Really!
Yesterday, I saw the Flash version of my photography portfolio, watched D-Town TV served up in Flash, and I even saw Adobe’s home page, in all it’s Flashy glory, all on my iPhone, thanks to an amazing new FREE App. Terry’s got it covered over at BestAppSite.com. You will be amazed (well, at least I was).
Travel Photography Tips from Nat Geo
National Geographic published a nice series of travel photography tips (just in time for summer), so if you’ve got a sec, check ‘em out right here.
Accept: The Concert Shots
My buddy, and concert photog, Scott Diussa recently shot the sold out New York City reunion concert of German rockers “Accept” and he got some absolutely killer shots. Here’s the link. Also, yesterday I got to see some of the concert photography of Drew Gurian (Joe McNally’s full time assistant), and I was very impressed with not only his concert work (which is outstanding), but his portraits as well. Stop by and check out Drew’s work here.
“Photo Recipes Live” Lighting Techniques Reviewed
There’s an in-depth review by guest reviewer Brian Reed over at the Tenuous Thread Photography blog of my recent lighting techniques DVD/Book Bundle: Photo Recipes Live: Behind the Scenes. Here’s the link.
If you’re a Wedding photographer….
…and you want to take your shooting to the next level, you’ve gotta check out Cliff Maunter’s workshop. I got to see Cliff teach at the Photo Plus Expo last year in New York City and and Matt and I were blown away! (“American Photo magazine named him “…one of the top ten wedding photographers in the world”)
So much so, that we asked Cliff to come and teach for us at Kelby Training Online (he just wrapped up two classes for us), and this guy is just amazing! His in-depth workshops are always sold out in advance (his July workshop has been sold out for months), but he’s got just a few spots left for his November workshop in Philadelphia. If you’re serious about this stuff, you’ve gotta grab one of those last spots. Here’s the link with more details.
Mike’s New Photo Blog
My buddy Mike Myer just relaunched his photo blog, which features great photos of Skies, Clouds, Storms and Landscapes, and he’s really got an eye for color. Here’s the link if you’ve got a quick sec.
Am I going to see you in Atlanta on Friday?
Nearly 500 photographers have already registered for my “Photoshop For Digital Photographers” seminar in Atlanta this Friday, but there’s room for a few more if you’d like to join me. Here’s the link with the scoop (and you can still snag a seat while you’re there). Hope to see you in person this Friday.
That’s it, folks
I’ve gotta call it a day. Hope you guys have a great Tuesday, and that you join us again as we once again celebrate the anniversary of our “Guest Blog” program, featuring the man who came up with idea—-Vincent Versace.
