Hi Gang: Just a coupla quick news thingys for today:
Shooting Tethered Wirelessly into an Apple iPad
Check out this very cool video (below) from photographer Brent Pearson, who figured out how to make this all work. This makes sense if you have a desktop computer that’s not near where you shoot in your studio. (Obviously, if you have a laptop, it doesn’t bring that much to the table, because if you have a laptop, you can just use it for tethering, but anyway, it’s worth a quick look either way, and might be handy for having multiple monitors so your client can see images live as you shoot as well). Also, check out his blog for the step-by-step set-up.
New Class From Laurie Excel for Beginning Photographers
Photoshop World Instructor Laurie Excel did an awesome online class exclusively for NAPP members who are new to photography, and it covers tons of tips, tricks, settings & advice for new shooters. If you’re a NAPP member, here’s the link to your free online class. Thanks Laurie!
Dano’s Dictionary of Fine Art & Photography Printing Terms
Ron Mortinsen’s blog has a really helpful resource put together by our friend, and photographer Dan Steinhardt (of Epson), and it’s basically a dictionary of fine art printing and photographers terms. Very cool and definitely worth checking out. Here’s the link.
Yesterday Was a Blast!
First, I had a visit from my buddy Terry White, and we shot a one-hour bonus video for our new iPhone 4 Book (which is on press now), and that’s always one of the highlights of the whole year, and then we had concert photographers (and Photoshop World instructors) Scott Diussa and Alan Hess here shooting online classes for Kelby Training on “How to Shoot Live Concerts.” I went out to the venue where they were shooting the class (their venues and bands have changed each day while they’re taping, to vary the lightning and shooting conditions). I have to tell you this—-as soon as their class goes live—I’ll be the first to watch it—that’s how cool it looks. This guys are the real deal, and the stuff they’re sharing is absolute gold for anybody who wants to shoot concerts!!!!
Yesterday’s Guest Blogger
I really enjoyed yesterday’s Guest Blog Post from Ben Van Hook. Of course, he had great images, but his message was really enlightening, and there are about a dozen lines you can pull out as separate quotes about photography, finding your vision, and taking portraits with emotion, that would all stand on their own. Thank you Ben. What a great read! (if you missed it, click here).
My Free Online Lightroom Class for Photo Walkers is Online—watch it anytime!
Just a reminder—the Online Lightroom Training Class that me, RC, and Matt Kloskowski taped live for anyone who walked as part of my Worldwide Photo Walk has been archived, and you can watch it anytime, completely for free, right here.
That’s it for today
Hope you guys have an awesome day today!!!!
