    Before I begin I want to thank Scott for including me as one of the weekly guest bloggers on his blog. To say it’s an honor for being one of the 52 guests he has per year is an understatement! You wouldn’t really think that being a guest blogger for Scott is an intimidating task until you are given the opportunity. Only then does the truth of the matter come out! I myself, a man of many words, struggled with what I should talk about and who I should target my post for. Then I remembered the KISS method; Keep It Simple Silly. For the more complex theories and techniques, I will guide you to the experts that I pull my inspiration and knowledge from. Please don’t mistake this for name dropping for shameless plugs for my friends… As they say, “it takes a village to raise a child“. In this case the saying would be “a community of artists draws inspiration!

    ....a man known to virtually anyone who has attended a Photoshop World Conference; it's photographer, educator, Photoshop freak, and the official un-official head of Security for Photoshop Midnight Madness and our official mascot, warm-up act, poet, trained killer, raconteur, and general bon vivant at large, the one....the only..... Vanelli! (also known as "Robert Vanelli" or "Mr. V" or just plain "V" to his friends and the various people he stalks). I first met "V" back in 1999 at the first Photoshop World conference ever. He saw me use a Martial Arts logo that I had designed in a project in one of my classes, and after the class he came up and introduced himself.  We soon found out that we had some mutual friends in the martial arts industry (we both were martial artists, but at much different levels. I was just another black…

    First I want to thank Brad Moore and Scott Kelby for inviting me along as a guest blogger. I'm flattered and excited to share some random insights about what I do. I would like to inform that I am a young digital born photographer that has been practicing for three years. I will try and keep this concise since the last thing I want to do is bore anyone with quotes and clichés. If anyone has any technical questions about how I created an image please email me and I will get back to you with detailed specifics. photographer. The title of photographer can mean so many things these days that I have come to dislike the question of, "What do you do for a living?” Nothing is more difficult than trying to explain the randomness that is my job. I sometimes reply, "Yes,…

    “Jack of all trades…”

    Hey everybody! I can’t tell you how happy, excited, anxious, intimidated, honored and humbled I am to be today’s guest blogger! When Scott asked me to do this a few weeks ago I was speechless. It truly is great to be here today.

    My first question to Scott was… who am I following??? ;-) I will say that it worked out perfectly for what I want to talk about that I am following the incredible post by Mike Olivella from last week. Mike’s specialty in sports photography, and the fact that he has so many other shooting talents as seen on his website, will bring home a point I want to make in just a little while. So, great job, Mike!

    My thoughts on what to write about have gone in a multitude of different directions but they always come back to some basic points… creativity, learning and teaching. How can we, as creative people, learn as much as we can from others and also teach what we know to help others? My inspiration to write about something like this rather than a photography “how to” lesson was a quote I read recently in a book my friend, Bill Fortney, gave me…

    .....wonderful photographer, gifted teacher, and manager of Nikon Professional Services (NPS), Scott Diussa. You've heard me talk about Scott's blog numerous times here on The Photoshop Insider (you might remember his excellent article on concert photography), or you might have seen him as a regular guest my weekly show for Nikon DSLR shooters; D-Town TV, but tomorrow I'm honored to have him here as my special guest blogger. I talked with Scott last night and he gave me a hint about his topic for tomorrow, and I can't wait to give it a read, so I hope you'll join me here tomorrow as well.

    >> Dead MacBook Crisis: Day 14 Howdy folks! That's right, I'm still battling with the massive hard drive crash I had the day before my Lightroom Tour in Denver last month, but after jumping through a few hoops (and with some help from Apple), I believe that by the time you read this my MacBook Pro will have been fully restored from my Time Capsule backup, and my work life will be somewhat back in order. There are half a dozen reasons why this restoration took so long, most of them are my fault, but I'm just glad it appears to be behind me (for the most part), and I can get back to full speed. >> The Review That Could Have Been I'm still working off a stripped machine for this post, so I don't have my review of the Topaz Adjust plug-in…
