    Yesterday, in my post about my first football shoot of the year (link), I mentioned that if some of the players wind up in the shade, that I remove the blue tint that appears over anything white (like their jerseys, helmet, the stripes on the ball, and so on) in Lightroom (or Camera Raw). Anyway, I had a few questions about it, so I thought I post a quick tutorial. Here goes: Above: Here's a great illustration of the problem: when the team winds up on a part of the field that's covered in shadows (as seen here), their white jerseys (and anything white for that matter) get a deep blue tint over them. However, you can see from the photo, that in a few seconds part of the team will be running in the daylight in front of them, which puts part of the…

    I had a number of folks ask me about what recovery software my assistant Brad Moore used to recover the images off the "missing miracle memory card" from last week (link). He told me he used San Disk's Photo Rescue Pro. Here's the link. Thanks again Braddo! :-)

    (Above: It's not a composite, and the background hasn't been blurred in Photoshop. It's the 400mm f/2.8 doing what it does best). On Saturday, I got to shoot my first football game of the year, alongside my buddy Mike McCaskey, as the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame routed the Michigan State Spartans 31 - 13. It's was a day made for shooting football---65° at game time with bright beautiful skies. (Above: In the 2nd half the sun gets low enough that about half the field is in shadows, and anything in white turns blue.  So, I get Lightroom's Adjustment Brush; I lower the Saturation slider quite a bit, then I paint over the blue areas in their jerseys, shirts, gloves, etc. and they return to white.). Shaking The Rust Off I was really rusty---not having shot football since last January, and it took me…

    You have to stay with me on this one, because....well...you just have to read this. In May of 2009, I came to Denver to do my Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks tour, and the day before I spent some time shooting with Jason from the Canonblogger.com. I decided to do a creative exercise to stretch myself a bit by breaking with the usual and just use one single lens; a 50mm prime lens----that's it. No changing lenses---just that one lens, the whole time. We shot for hours wandering around downtown Denver and really had a great time. I mostly shot architectural type stuff---buildings, signs, patterns---stuff like you see at the top of this post. I even took some examples I could use for an upcoming book project, and all and all I really enjoyed that one lens exercise because it makes you think and work…

    If you're at Photoshop World in Vegas, the book is being officially launched by Peachpit Press there and we have a limited number for sale at the official bookstore on the Expo floor. It's hitting other bookstores next week (Amazon.com already has the Kindle version available now), and you can preorder the print version from Amazon.com, or Barnes & Noble.com, or pick it up at your local bookstore in just a few days.
