    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…

    (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. (3) Adobe announces 1-million Creative Cloud paid user mark (hit way…

    I'm getting psyched!!! Here's a few quick things stay on top of: (1) We now have more than 1,000 photo walks organized in cities around the world All the walks are now in place, as the deadline for creating new walks was this past weekend, so now it's just about finding a walk near you. (2) We have the biggest and best prizes for the photo contest ever! Check out this link to see what our awesome sponsors have come up with. (3) It's not too late to join a photo walk in your city (it's free). Here's the link to the official photo walk page --- see if there's one near you and join us on Saturday, October 5th for an experience you'll never forget. (4) Check out our Worldwide Photo Walk Webcast Last year we did a free webcast with lots of…

    Cowboy Stadium has been at the top of my list for stadiums to shoot for a few years now, and yesterday I finally got the chance. I had only seen it from the outside, a few years ago when I was doing my "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it" tour in Arlington --- it's within walking distance of the convention center where we hold my classes, and it's just an amazing feat of architecture and design, and when I found out I I'd be here a day early, I reached out over Twitter to find a contact with the Cowboys, and before you know it I was talking with Shannon Gross, Social Media powerful overlord for the Cowboys (and as luck would have it, a photographer). Our shoot was set for 2:00 pm yesterday, and I was planning out my shoot in the morning when…

    Sorry for the late post this morning --- I'm behind on....well....pretty much everything. LOL!! :) So, last week we started something new for us over at KelbyTraining.com --- each week we're broadcasting one of online classes from Kelby Training Online for free, all-day long, continuously for free. Last week we aired my Travel Photography Class (filmed on location in Paris, France), and this week, we're airing PART TWO, which is where I do all the post-procesing of the shots taken in Part One using Lightroom and Photoshop, and I go through my entire workflow. Each week, we'll be continuously airing a different class, because we're betting you’re going to watch a couple of classes and you’ll learn so much that you’ll totally want access to the rest of our more than 300 online photography classes (it’s only $199 a year for unlimited access or $24.95 a…

    Above: One of my favorites from the game. Shot at 6,400 ISO. No noise reduction. OK, it wasn't a pretty game, and it didn't end the way I was hoping, and we had a long rain delay (well, Lightning delay), and I got home hours later than I expected, and I'm still pretty damp from the rain, plus I forgot some important stuff, and just overall....I loved it! :) Above: Here's an iPhone shot of my "Office" for game day. Ahhh, the glamour of sports photography. They really spoil us with perks like free power outlets and fold-up metal chairs in the workroom. There's almost enough for everybody. ;-) I actually have lots to share about the game, the gear, my new fancy-dancy multiple card reader, and my long list of mistakes off the field and in my post-processing, but unfortunately, it's pretty darn…
