When I was up in New York for Photo Plus Expo, one morning I got a chance to do a shoot at the incredible Morgan Library and Museum an hour before they open the doors to the public. I usually share stuff like this on storytelling site “Exposure.co” but this time I used the just introduced Web-editing feature of “Adobe Slate.”

Here’s the link to my shots (including behind-the-scenes shots and camera settings):

On my current tour, only one session of the entire day is about post processing. It’s called “Scott’s 7-Point System for Lightroom” and before I start that session, I always ask the crowd for a show of hands to let me know who is already using Lightroom. Doesn’t matter which city, or which country, nearly every single hand goes up in the room. So I then ask, “OK, who is NOT using Lightroom?” and it’s literally just a handful of people out of 300 or 400 photographers in the room.

Hi Gang: I’m on my way to San Francisco today for my seminar there tomorrow, but in the meantime I wanted to share some of my shots from the Tennessee Vols game this past weekend. They were playing on the road in Tuscaloosa, Alabama against the Top-10 ranked Crimson Tide, and I shared some of my favorite shots over at Exposure.co (the photo storytelling site).

Here’s the link if you’ve got sec.

Mornin’ everybody, from the Photo Plus Expo – it’s an absolutely beautiful day here in New York City. Not cold, not hot – just perfect with that crisp twinge of fall in the air. Perfect day to be in this amazing city. I’ve just got a few minutes, so here’s quickly what’s up:

The Morgan Library Started the day with a shoot for my “The Great Indoors” book at the Morgan Library here in Manhattan. What a just jaw-dropping place. They were kind enough to let me come in this morning before it opens to the public to get some shots for the book (a bit thanks to the incredibly patient Moriah Shtull from the Morgan, and to Grant Friedman for bringing us together). Here’s the link to the Morgan Library and Museum – this is a MUST-SEE for any photography – just stunning.

Brad is leading a location Photo shoot / walk this morning as part of Photo Plus Expo, so my buddy Jeff Revell went with me to assist (Jeff took the bts shot you see above and the one below). That’s me getting an overhead view using a fisheye lens up on a monopod, triggered by the remote you see in my other hand. Had to shoot at 6,400 in the low light, but no problem for the Canon 1Dx.

Here’s another BTS shot – getting down low and using Live View to help position the 11-24mm super wide angle lens. I haven’t imported the actual shots yet, but will share some next week once they’re done.

Teaching in Canon’s Booth
Yesterday I did a session on the main stage at Canon’s booth at Photo Plus Expo. My talk was How to Take Travel Photos Like a Pro, and I covered everything from the gear, to shooting recipes, to so much more. Great crowd (and thanks to RC and Brad for taking the BTS shots you see below).

I’m off right now to do a book signing at the Rocky Nook booth – signing my new “How Do I Do That in Lightroom” book. Hope I’l see you there.

College Football Tomorrow!
The Bucs are on the road this week, and so I’ll be shooting for the Tennessee Vols tomorrow as they take on the Alabama Crimson Tide  in Alabama’s Bryant-Denny stadium. The atmosphere is just electric at these games, so I can’t wait! (Plus, I’m trying out a Cam-Ranger rig for a remote camera shoot, and I’m not sure my idea is 100% solid, so this will either be really cool and helpful….or not. More after I try it and report back).

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and we’ll see ya back here on Monday. Have a good one!

-Scott

P.S. I’ll be in San Francisco next Wednesday teaching my new Shoot Like a Pro: Part 2 (Reloaded) seminar. Hope you can come out and spend the day with me.
