    Here's another shot from my shoot with rapper "10 Minute." After we lost all light at our location shoot, we headed back into the studio to finish up. Here are the details on the shot: Although you can see two lights in the production shot above (photo by Brad Moore), only one (the one directly above his head) was actually connected (the light in the background was left from an earlier shoot that day (the one I did with the clamp-on fan). The light directly above his head is a White Lightning 1200 watt strobe with a Beauty Dish reflector and I have the diffuser that goes over the beauty dish (to somewhat soften the edgy light that comes from a beauty dish). The reason the medium gray background appears so dark is because I used a high shutter speed, so it would fall…

    At Christmas I got a very cool new electric guitar from my wife (that's not the accessory, by the way), and she wanted to make sure I got a guitar I really liked, so I went to the local music store to find one I liked, but while there, I walked by the drum department and that's when I saw a small, specially designed fan for drummers that mounts right on a cymbal stand. Well, I took a look at how it was mounted and realized that it would fit perfectly on a lightstand, which would make it an ideal fan for people shooting fashion, because you can easily control the height and angle of the wind (rather than having it sitting on the floor, where it's harder to access and aim). Anyway, the fan is called the "BLOWiT Personal Cooling System" (OK, the…

    Our good friend, and legendary Wildlife Photographer, Moose Peterson has posted a mini-review of Nikon's new D3x over at his Moose News blog, and he gives one of the first real field tests out there (from the Digital Landscape Workshop Series taking place out in Yellowstone right now) of this newly released high-end camera. Here's the link to Moose's blog to check it out.

    I'm finishing up the update to, "The Photoshop Elements 7 Book for Digital Photographers," (co-authored with Matt Kloskowski) and each time I update a book, I always use all new photos throughout the book, which means I have to be shooting pretty much all the time (which gives me a great excuse to use with my wife, "Honey, it's for work." ;-) Anyway, I shot a number of new images just for the book, and I thought it would be cool to do an on-location sports portrait of some local kids who play Soccer (which is called football about every place else on the planet). My buddy Jim Workman is president of the local Soccer (football) league and he set-up a shoot for me with a family that had three talented, fun, and really sweet kids. This was my first location shoot with Brad…

    Time's running out to get Holiday gifts, so I thought I'd better share a few last minute gift ideas. Here's a pretty cool one for the photographer on your list who already has an off camera flash (Like a Nikon SB-800 or a Canon 580 EX II). It's Lastolite's EZYbox, which is a collapsible softbox that does a really sweet job of softening and spreading the light (in fact, I'm using it on a location shoot tomorrow!). The EZYbox comes with a flash mount bracket, and once you slide your flash onto its hotshoe, you put your flash through the hole in the back of the softbox (as shown above), and you're ready to go.  There are two things I dig about the EZYbox: It folds down really small, as seen in the example photos below, where I think Brad does just a stunning…

    This week on Photoshop User TV, we did our annual "Holiday Gear Guide Live!" where we share some of our picks for holiday gifts, including a bunch of cool gear that isn't in the printed or online versions of my gear guide. You can watch it here online, or in Apple's iTunes (where you can subscribe to it, and get each episode, free at this link). NOTE: On a completely unrelated note: Brad totally rocked his Guest Blog Spot yesterday. I knew Brad was a great assistant, and skilled photographer, but honestly, I had no idea he was such a great writer. I'm both impressed and a bit scared (I don't know whether to find him a photo agent, get him shooting some stock, or find him a book deal). Way to go, Boy Wonder!!!
