    We’re just five days away, and right now we have more than 23,000 photographers already signed-up for 1,200+ local walks around the world this Saturday, Oct 5th. We are thrilled at the worldwide participation and sense of community this has created, and I can’t wait for the local walk I’m leading on Saturday in Rome, Italy to get here (it's my and my wife's first time to Rome, and my brother, his girlfriend, and a few more friends will be joining us along the way. I am psyched!). If you haven’t signed up for a Walk Yet…. It’s not too late. Here’s the link—find a city near you, and sign up to be a part of your local walk. Seven Tips for Walkers Each year, I gave seven tips for walkers to help you make the most of your walk, and I’ve got those here for you again. If you’re…

    Mornin' everybody. I wanted to wrap up the week with a quick trick for creating realistic backgrounds for compositing, so here goes: When I was in Seattle for my "Shoot Like a Pro" Tour, before the seminar kicked off in the morning, Brad and I went just outside the convention center so I could create some real shallow depth-of-field backgrounds I could use in Compositing. I did this mostly because I hate how it looks when you take an in-focus background and try and "fake it" by adding a massive Gaussian Blur or Lens Blur filter in Photoshop. Above: I had Brad stand in the street, and I zoomed-in fairly tight on him with a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, at f/2.8 so the background would be way out of focus (as seen here). Once I was focused on Brad, I would hold the shutter button…

    http://youtu.be/GrklO1_ukCU Sixth Annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk Have you signed up for the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk yet? We’re less than a month away, but there’s still time to find a walk near you and sign up. There are over 17,000 already people signed up to take part in this year’s event! New walks are being added every day, so if you don’t see one near you, keep checking back. If you’re already signed up, don’t forget to pick up your official Worldwide Photo Walk shirt (or hoodie). All of the profits from the shirt sales will go to the Springs of Hope Kenya Orphanage, so you’re helping kids in need when you make your purchase. And if you need any extra incentive to sign up for this fun, free event, we’ve recently had more additions to the Contest Prizes! The Grand Prize package is now valued at over $13,000 and includes a Canon…

    [Note from Brad: This post contains a little PG-13 language/imagery.]

    I would first like to thank Scott and Brad for inviting me to be today’s guest blogger… it’s quite an honor and hopefully I won’t make them regret asking me. Like most of us here, I am an image guy and words are my enemy. So, I will do my best to finish a thought, not use run-on sentences, and in the end, shed some light on what I do as a digital artist.

    For those of you who don’t know me or my work, let me give you the elevator ride explanation of who I am. I have been in the business of making images for high profile clients, ad agencies, and celebrities for over 15 years. After graduating from the University of Michigan, I cut my teeth in a small retouching studio and worked my way up through studio/agency life until venturing out on my own. I consider myself a digital artist, who’s specialty is creating hybrid images. This is done by combining all of my skill sets into one image, CGI, illustration and photography.

    One of the most rewarding aspects of what I do is collaborating with some the best photographers in the world. Working with another artist on a project can be very rewarding, especially when you can combine your talents and create something better than you could have alone. I have had the luxury of working with some great photographers and I would like to shed some light on how the whole process works. Keep in mind that there is no one formula for working together, as we all know, people are very different and so is my approach when working with photographers. The best way to explore this topic is to use real world examples and talk a little bit about approach, collaboration and promotion.

    I will start off with a photographer who has done the guest blog before and who has inspired me to be a better artist. That guy is Tim Tadder. Tim and I met a few years ago and we both felt an instant connection in our work… wow, that sounded more like a “bromance” story, not that there is anything wrong with that. Anyways, Tim and I have come to rely on each other for creative inspiration and as sounding boards for ideas.

    (1) Fascinating interview with the man who wrote Photoshop, Thomas Knoll A really great look at Photoshop's history, evolution and much more. Very frank, revealing, and refreshing. Great stuff  (click the video above to jump over to Vimeo to watch the interview --- Vimeo wouldn't let me embed it here, but you can watch it there). (2) Adobe's photographers bundle deal is now available I know a lot of folks have been waiting for the $9.99 per month bundle deal for the latest versions of both Photoshop & Lightroom (for previous owners of Photoshop, all the way back to CS3), to become available, and now it's here. Here's the link for more details. I did a post with more info shortly after Adobe's announcement during the Photoshop World keynote -- here's that link.
