    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…

    Last week was Joe McNally's workshop down in the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, and I was there as a guest instructor (teaching some Lightroom and stuff), and man, did we have a ball. (NOTE: Joe posted the final image of what you see him shooting above over at his blog---here's the link). Of course, Joe was the main attraction, so he had to work his butt off, and well....I only had to teach on Friday, so I could hang out with the class and go on shoots, or sleep in (which I did a lot of), or just hang out on the beach and do nothing (ditto). It was an awesome week of relaxing and fun, at one of the top-rated luxury resorts in the world (and yes, I totally know how lucky I am). :) Joe does a pretty cool thing at…

    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…
