    If you're going to Photoshop World in Orlando, I hope you'll check out one of my classes. I'm teaching four sessions in the conference track this year: Wednesday: Portrait Retouching Techniques for Photographers This all new class was inspired by my upcoming book (with a similar) name, and it's especially aimed at photographers who do their own portrait retouching in Photoshop. It's designed to help you: (a) determine exactly what needs to be retouched (b) how to do it quickly and efficiently and (c) how to keep detail and texture in everything you do for realistic looking retouches. Thursday: Photoshop for Travel Photographers Travel photography is one of my real passions, and I'm really excited about this session, which shows you how to make your travel photos look like you've always dreamed they would. I packed a lot of cool stuff in this class,…

    Hi Gang: Just a really short one for today---I'm up late prepping for a new nationwide tour I'm about to launch called "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it, Live!" and today (Monday) I'm doing a test run of the tour with a small (25 people) live audience in our studios down in Florida. We invited 25 or so NAPP members to spend the day with me for free today as I do the entire seminar, start to finish, just for them. That way I can get their one-on-one feedback, ideas, and generally test and tweak everything out before we hit the road. I'll have the official tour dates and cities shortly, but in the meantime I wanted to share something that I've been seeing more and more of, and it makes me think the camera or lens manufacturers are missing something in their instruction…

    In January you guys posted more than 1,700 Comments I just went back and added up the number of comments posted by readers from Jan 3rd to Feb 1st, and it was a whopping 1,730 (although 1540 of those were from Ken Toney). ;-)  I was just astounded at the community you guys have built, and I want you to know that I read each and every one. Because I see your comments, I wanted to answer some of the questions I see popping up again and again that aren't specific to that particular post. However, before I do I just wanted to thank you all for taking the time to share your comments, and especially to thank you for keeping your comments positive and making this a place where everybody's treated with respect, and people don't get flamed (or even lightly toasted). (1)…

    First, I want to thank Scott for inviting me to be his guest blogger for the second time here at Photoshop Insider.  It’s always an honor and a pleasure to make his accommodation.  Also, let me say that today’s post in no way reflects the views of “this station.”  Today’s post is meant to be more than a social observation, but rather a revelation of what’s happening in the field of wedding photography today, why it happened, and what can wedding photographers do about it. It may seem to be a “Doom and Gloom” read but is not meant to be. It is meant rather to be an “eye opening” read that I hope shakes all sense of complacency from our bones, and fires us up to do something about the current state of affairs.

    As I researched and wrote this post, I was amazed by the confluence of circumstances that have completely changed how most wedding photographers have done business for years.  Most amazing was the speed at which these confluences collided and changed things in just a matter of 24-36 months! And all these changes mean that we must do business in a brand new way if we wish to succeed.

    This post is meant to be Part 1 of a two part post. The reason, as I continued my research and writing I was topping out over 2,900 words and I still had about 1,500 to go – whew!  So, although most of this post reads like “Doom and Gloom” for wedding photography, I scatter tiny rays of hope throughout. Part 2, to be entitled “Dreams and Opportunities” or something like that ;) , will point wedding photography readers towards concrete strategies about how to grow their wedding photography business stronger and better than ever!

    I hope you enjoy today’s read in the social observation context in which it was written.  Read on if you dare….
