Sorry for the late post, but I was up REALLY late prepping for my sessions today at the B&H Photo Lightroom 5 Digital Photography Summit at the Javtis Center (it kicks off at 10:00 am this morning). I took the shot above (the view from my hotel room at the Hilton Garden Inn on 8th) with my iPhone last night when I got in, and I processed it in Camera+ on my phone (Oppa Kalebra Style). 

I did get to meet up with my buddy, NYC-based photographer Jason Joseph (shown above) at one of my favorite New York restaurants, the incredible Keen’s Steakhouse. Mmmmm. Keen’s. We were hoping this photo makes it into the grainy, noisy hall-of-fame, and I think we have a decent chance at it.

After dinner my brother Jeff (who is here with us in NYC for the B&H Summit too), and I walked down to Times Square and did the tourist thing (sat in the bleachers and marveled at all the giant high-def screens), and I took this iPhone pano of it all.

Look forward to meeting many of you today at the Javits center (if you’re there and you read the blog, make sure you come up and say “hi”). Cheers and have a great Monday!

P.S. If you’re not in NYC, you can still watch the event – Here's the link to sign up for the free live streaming.

 

The Live event at the Javits Center in New York City is already sold out, but if you didn’t get a ticket, or you don’t live near New York City, you can still watch the event as it’s being streamed LIVE on Monday as it happens.

Here’s the link to sign up for the free live streaming. Hope to see you in person on Monday at the Javits, or online!

Have a great weekend everybody, and we’ll see you back here on Monday.

P.S. I’m doing a few sessions in the morning, but then I’m doing a live-shoot (fashion styling by the awesome Sophia Batson) in my session after lunch (starting around 1:15 pm New York Time), and then I’m handing the images off to Katrin and Julieanne to edit, retouch, and finish. Hope you can catch it.

Lightroom 5 is now shipping — and to celebrate; one week from today you’re invited to come join me, Julieanne Kost and Katrin Eismann for B&H Photo’s “Lightroom Digital Photography Summit”

It’s a FREE, all-day learning event at the Javits Center, coming up on Monday, June 17th and if you’re in the New York area, you gotta come down (you’ll have loads of fun and you’ll learn a bunch).

I’ll be showing some of my favorite Lightroom tips; I’m doing a live shoot (then handing off the images to Julieanne and Katrin to retouch and finish), plus a lot more.

Seating is limited (and it’s almost already sold out in advance), so grab your seat at “The Summit” right here.

Hope you can join us. See you in New York next week!

Over the weekend I posted this photo of me holding up a poster I made for the owner of the Audi R8 I shot a few weeks ago. I mentioned I made the poster using Lightroom (and a tiny bit of Photoshop â” just for the type at the bottom), and a lot of folks asked how I put it together so I did the quick tutorial you see below.

The image was printed on our Epson Stylus Pro 7900 printer on Epson Exhibition Fiber paper.

Hanging Prints In My Office
After I ran this video on my Facebook page and on Twitter, I got a new set of questions: “How are you hanging those prints on the wall of your office” so here’s the scoop on that: Those are actually thin shelves that screw into the wall from IKEA called RIBBA that are perfect for clipping prints to. They’re about $10 a section (cheap!). Another option from IKEA is the DIGNITET wire — very hip looking, easier to install (slightly more expensive), but there’s one downside to both: you can’t order them online — you have to go an actual IKEA store to get them.

UPDATE: Hanging clips
Since I released this post this morning, had a few questions about which type of clips I used to hang these. I wish I had some cool thing to turn you on to, they are just metal clips from Office Dept (link). See below. 

One More Thing:
If you missed my behind-the-scenes video of the actual R8 Shoot I ran here on the blog a few weeks back (using the cool new Priolites that are getting a lot of buzz), I embedded it right below so you can check it out (just click play).

Anyway, hope that helps, and here’s wishing you a “kick-butt Monday” (even though you know and I know, that’s an oxymoron). Cheers everybody!

Great video clip from my buddy Matt Kloskowski on what he thinks may well be the most useful button in Lightroom (he originally ran this over on LightroomKillerTips.com last week). I can’t say I disagree, because I use it literally every single day dozens of times (if not more). If it’s not “the” most useful button, it’s surely is among the very top!

Hope you all have a great Monday. :)

Lightroom 5 Beta is here!
That’s right — Adobe released a free downloadable Beta version of Lightroom 5 and I gotta tell ya — it SO rocks!!!!

Our launch center, produced by the National Assn. of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) has videos from us on all the new features, so I  won’t  spoil it for you here, but Adobe really moved Lightroom a big step forward with this release with some killer stuff for the Develop Module (hint: including a “real” healing brush), and they ticked a few key things off our wish list in the Slideshow and Books module too that make a big difference (among a host of tweaks, enhancements and improvements throughout).

Here’s the link to our Lightroom 5 Beta Learning Center — and there’s a direct link there to download the Lightroom 5 Beta version.
