If you missed last week’s episode of “The Grid,” ( our live weekly show about photography) with the super awesome Kalebra as my in-studio guest — we opened the show by announcing the artist whose work will open “The Gallery at KelbyOne” (a beautiful new photographic art gallery at the KelbyOne headquarters in Florida).

The winner is: photographer and Art Director, Mark Wegner from Sonoma County, California

We were really taken with both Mark’s B&W and his color work, and the strong graphic aesthetic he brings to his compositions.

I did a full Q&A about this on-going project a few weeks back here on the blog when we opened submissions for the gallery showing to KelbyOne members. If you’ve got a moment, I think you’ll enjoying reading how the idea came about and why we’re hosting this gallery. It’s something we’re very excited about, and very proud of, and once you read about it, we hope you will be, too.

 

We’re working out the exact date of Mark’s opening now, and as soon as we have that nailed down, I’ll share it here on the blog (and we’ll be inviting members to join us for the opening night’s reception, and live interview with Mark in the theater).

Our hearty congratulations to Mark, and thanks to everyone who took the time to enter. We’ll be opening submissions to find our next featured artist in the gallery very soon, so stayed tuned.

Blind Photo Critiques Tomorrow on “The Grid!”
Plus, tomorrow we reveal our all-new “underground hacker” set for the show with all new graphics and a new look, new intro music, heck — new everything!  (Note: we did 269 episodes — just short of six years, on that old set, which debuted live on March 7, 2011 ); My guest tomorrow is Rick Sammon and we’re doing our monthly “Blind Photo Critiques” episode, so if you’d like to have your work considered for blind critique, here’s the link to submit your images. Good luck, and see you tomorrow at 4pm ET at kelbytv.com/thegrid

P.S. My wife Kalebra and I are collaborating on a new personal photo project, and we have our first location shoot in the series on Monday. Very excited to tell you more about it next week. :) 

Hi Gang, and greetings from the yummy cheese capital of the USA – Milwaukee, Wisconsin (here for my seminar today – looking forward to meeting everybody!).

So, here’s the scoop (well, as it relates to Photoshop anyway). Basically, Adobe would like your feedback on how often you’d like to see Photoshop updated, as well as your thoughts on balancing new features, bug fixes and polish to existing features.

They put together a quick survey over at this link

I took the survey myself, and you have lots of opportunities to share your thoughts with Adobe, by answering Multiple Choice questions, or by writing in your own comments (totally optional).

Anyway, this is so worth doing, and a great opportunity to be heard directly by the Photoshop team at Adobe — I hope you take advantage of it.

In other news…

Here’s wishing you a fantastic weekend! :)

P.S. I’m shooting the Bucs/Rams home opener in Tampa on Sunday, but if you want to read a really shocking football photography “incident” that happened to me a few years back, read my story “Aaron Rodgers Owes me a New Monopod.” You will never forget it. Here’s the link.

This week we had New York-based fashion photographer Lindsay Adler as our in-studio guest on our free weekly photography talk show “The Grid”, and I gotta tell you — she gave some of the most clear, concise, helpful, and just downright “on-the-money” advice for fashion photographesr I’ve ever heard.

People are absolutely raving about this episode and if you’ve got a few minutes, you’ll be amazed at what you’ll learn — she totally rocked it! (you can watch the free rebroadcast above — just click the Play button).

Also, I start the show with the story of my “Canadian Border Fiasco,” (and it’s some story), so I hope you get to check it all out.
