    I'm back from four days on the Island of St. Lucia in the Caribbean, as the Guest Speaker at Joe McNally's Off Camera Flash workshop. The workshop was an even more amazing experience than I had expected, and I learned a lot more than just photography. This week, I'm going to share some different things I learned as an instructor, as a student, as a guest in a very special resort (more on this in a moment), as a businessman, as a husband, a father, and as a photographer (it's amazing what you can absorb in just four days). It'll probably make a separate post each day this week to share these lessons, and I'll weave my stories in alongside some of the other important things happening in this; the week leading up to my Worldwide Photo Walk on Saturday. But as I'm sitting…

    Nikon has just released a new site, called the "Nikon D-Movie Screening Room" that features high-definition video clips shot entirely with their DSLR's that have built-in video capabilities (the Nikon D90 and D5000 cameras). I have to say, it's pretty amazing to see what can be done, thanks to the ability to use Nikon camera lenses (and the shallow depth of field that the right lens can bring), and if you've ever wondered what all the fuss is about on putting video in DSLRs, this will make you a believer. Here's the link----take two minutes and check it out.

    With the 4th of July coming up tomorrow (The 4th is Independance Day in the US, and we celebrate with Fireworks), I thought I'd run a quick blurb from Vol. 1 of my book, The Digital Photography Book on how to shoot Fireworks (like I did last year around this time). Here ya go: You’ll need to shoot fireworks with your camera on a tripod, because you’re going to need a slow enough shutter speed to capture the falling light trails, which is what you’re really after. Also, this is where using a cable release really pays off, because you’ll need to see the rocket’s trajectory to know when to push the shutter button—if you’re looking in the viewfinder instead, it will be more of a hit or miss proposition. Next, use a zoom lens (ideally a 200mm or more) so you can get…

    Friend of the blog Richard Rabinowitz (former Publisher of Popular Photography and American Photo) turned me onto this very cool time lapse video from photographer Jill Enfield that is really going to strike a chord with anyone who has ever developed their own film. But beyond that, this two minute video is just darn cool, and seeing the process unfold in front of your eyes is almost as fascinating as the portrait she creates. I've embedded the video below, but also make sure you visit Jill's Website to see some very engaging, thoughtful fine art work.

    .....I was surprised how much, in person, it looks like a calendar. I thought the sprial binding would be cool, especially because the photo book would sit nice and flat, but I have to tell you, most everyone that saw it made the mention that it kind of looks like a calendar. On screen it really didn't have that feel, but it really did in person. That being said; the print job was just great, and the paper was very nice and thick and really reproduced the photos well, but at the end of the day, I think I'll reorder it as a standard softcover book (by the way; I much prefer the soft-cover books to the hard cover ones. They have a much less "consumery feel" to them). So, that's my first take on the spiral bound Apple iPhoto books. They have their…

    Now that I'm back from my workshop, I'm catching up on reading my favorite blogs, and I saw over at Moose Peterson's "Moose New Blog" (link), that he attended the practice sessions for the Reno Air Races (along with a group of 25 aviation photographers). Nikon Professional Services (NPS) was there to support the event, and besides getting to hang with these guys, Moose came back with some just awesome shots. Moose posted a link to a gallery of 37 of his images from the event, but you're not out-of-luck for getting your own, because the actual race itself is coming up this September (seeing Moose's images really makes me want to go now. I'm going to have to check my calendar!!!). Anyway, check out Moose's post about the shoot, and check out his images while you're there. Congrats Moose on capturing some amazing…
