    OK, it was really "Fashion Shoot" Wednesday. Last Wednesday, in between my taping a “Another Day with Jay Maisel” on Tuesday in New York City, and my presentations on Thursday at the Photo Plus Expo. Since I had this day in-between, I set up a fashion shoot as one of the projects for my upcoming book, “Photoshop CS5 Professional Portrait Retouching." I’ve been shooting a lot of portraits for the past couple of months, because I wanted all fresh, new images for the book, and even though we have an in-house studio, I’ve always wanted to do a fashion shoot in New York, and do it right----using a professional fashion stylist to coordinate the look, and finding really great hair and make-up artists, along with New York fashion models who would take the whole shoot up a notch. I started my search with the…

    I’m teaching two FREE sessions on the Photo Plus Expo floor today in New York City: (1) Studio Lighting: Behind the Scenes When: 12:15 pm Where: Manfrotto Distribution's booth/theater (they distribute Elinchrom lighting, Lastolite modifiers, Gitzo, Kata, and more). (2) Portrait Retouching Secrets When: 3:30 pm Where: Wacom’s booth/theater Hope to see you later today (make sure you come up and say "hi").

    On Sunday, I shot the Bucs vs. Rams NFL game on assignment for Southcreek Global Media (Both teams are having decent seasons so far and the Bucs ended up winning in the last 15 seconds, taking them to a 4 and 2 record. Whodathunkit?). (Above: Cadillac Williams early in the day, not yet knowing he would make the game winning catch with just seconds left on the clock. CLICK ON IT FOR A LARGER VIEW). The Dream Lens I couldn't hold out any longer, so I went ahead and bought the dream lens---the 400mm f/2.8, and after shooting with it for just one game, it truly is the lens for football. Scary sharp, great shallow DOF, and the 400mm length is really ideal. It definitely is heavier and larger than the 300mm f/2.8, but it's worth it. Camera Specs My main camera was my…

    You guys already know that I'm a huge fan of Elinchrom's strobes (they're the only strobes I use in the studio), and in particular their BXRI's compacts. So, I was really psyched when Elinchrom asked to use some of my images for their new print ad campaign (seen below). The first ad features a studio shot I took of professional model Julie Anna Cole (above), using three BXRI's 500 watt strobes (but one of the strobes was just used to light the white background, so there are only two strobes lighting the subject). This ad appears in the new issue of Professional Photographer magazine. Above: Here's a production shot from the shoot taken by Brad (of course, at this point, she had a fur hat on, which you'll see that shot below, but it wasn't used in the campaign), and you can see the…

    Wow--what a week! This was my fourth hands-on field workshop with Bill Fortney (pictured with me above in Moab. Photo by Chuck Barnes), and it was perhaps our most fun workshop yet. Fun is really a great way to describe Bill's workshops, because he really makes fun an emphasis of the week, and the whole time you're laughing and making new friends while you're learning. Wednesday Night The workshop starts with a social evening on Wednesday night, where Bill introduces the team of instructors and photographers helping the class out, and he shows slideshows from each of us. I used Aperture to do my slideshow, because I can sync each slide to the music, and I wanted to include a sports section to my slideshow, sync'd to the Fox NFL Sports theme, and while the syncing worked great, for reasons I can't understand, the…

    Hi Gang: This week I've been out in Moab, Utah leading a hands-on workshop with landscape photography legend Bill Fortney, along with a team of top notch instructors and 35 or so very fun, totally energized participants, and we're havin' a ball out here shootin' and working with Lightroom and CS5. An HDR Love Fest I got special permission yesterday from Nik Software to show my class Nik's new HDR Efex Pro plug-in for Photoshop and Lightroom and it was a big hit with the workshop participants (and most of our participants at the workshop are seriously into HDR). I had a pre-release copy already so I knew it was going to be a hit, but now that I've shown it to a crowd, it's going to be even bigger than I thought. The area is pretty socked in with clouds, so we haven't…
