My buddy Larry Becker took this pano with his iPhone of the scene at the historic Tampa Theater during the final US stop of my “Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it” tour this past Tuesday.

Really had a fun day (and the theater was an amazing venue for a class like this). I have one tour date left, Saturday April 28th in London, England (I already have two hundred+ photographers signed up for the event).

Hope you can join me there (link).

We just released our latest issue of Light It Magazine (our how-to magazine for hot shoe flash and studio lighting) and it’s our biggest issue yet.
It’s available in the Apple Newsstand on the iPad (coming soon for Android), and it’s only $2.99 (all back issues are there, too for $2.99 or you can subscribe for $19.95 for a full year — 8 issues).
Lots of great stuff in this issue, including more lighting for wedding photographers, lighting pets with hot shoe flash, lighting children, location lighting, and tons more. I hope you give it read (here’s the link to it on the App store). :)

It’s been an incredibly fun adventure taking this tour all over the US, three cities in Canada, and two in Europe, but tomorrow is my last US stop of the tour (I do have one more tour date in London, England on Saturday, April 28th).

If you haven’t signed up, it’s not too late (and for the first time ever, we’re hosting this event at the historic Tampa Theater in downtown Tampa, Florida. Here’s the link with details (it’s $99 for the full day, or just $79 if you’re a NAPP member).

Thanks to everyone who supported this tour, and came out to see me on the road. It’s been one of my most-successful tours ever, and absolutely the most fun tour I’ve ever taught. I will definitely miss teaching it, but of course soon I’ll be rolling out an entirely different tour, and hopefully later this year I’ll get to see some of you once again (though my touring schedule will be much, much lighter than it has been the past year or so. I’m beat!). :)

Hope I get to see you in person tomorrow in Tampa (or in London next month). Cheers!

OK, it took us a long, long, long time to get this all working, and approved by Apple, but I’m happy to announce that Light It Magazine (our how-to magazine for hot shoe and studio lighting) is now available in the Apple Newstand on your iPad, and you can now subscribe there as well (A one-year subscription; 8 issues, is $19.95 [about $2.50 an issue]).

To access it via Newsstand, first get the latest free update to our app (Version 1.2) from the App store and your app icon will move from it’s current location) and subscriptions ($19.99 for 8 issues) are now available! Since the subscription service is new (and lots of readers already have issues 1-5) the subscription starts with the most recent issue, which is issue 5. (Issue 6 is on the way!). :)

Thanks to everybody who helped to make this magazine launch such a success — in fact, we’re currently working on a version for Android tablets, and as soon as we have fairly firm a launch date, I’ll be sure to let you know.

My personal favorite, the Gear Watch section ;) :

Plus Tom Bol on sports portraiture, Erik Valind on high-speed sync with small flash, Kevin Ames on reflectance, Jason Groupp on what to do with stage lighting during wedding receptions, an interview with Frank Doorhof, sixty seconds with stock photographer Nicole S.
