Do you live in Ft. Lauderdale?
Are you at least within driving distance? OK, how about a short flight? In either case, you should come out to my seminar there on June, 9th. It’s going to be epic! Ticket info here.

Have a great one everybody, and we’ll see ya back here tomorrow for another in my 10-part series. :)

It’s Monday — and #5 is a alive! This is kind of an obscure feature, and it doesn’t always work 100% of the time (what does, right?), but when it works, it’s pretty awesome. It allows you to match the overall color and tone of one photo to any other one you pick. It’s cooler than it sounds.

Hope you found that helpful. :)

Hey, can you help me spread the word to Orlando photographers?
That’s because I’m heading there in a few weeks with my one-day seminar, and I want to see lots of old friends, and make some new ones. I’m there on Tuesday, June 7th – if you know a friend in that area, can you let ’em know. Much appreciated. Here’s ticket info. 

Good a pretty cool tip for tomorrow, so come on back for #6 in the series. :)

Best,

OK, we’re back with another — this time it’s three little features/options/shortcuts/whatever for the Move tool and they are actually pretty darn handy (One I use multiple times every single day — don’t know what I’d do with out it). Check ’em out below (it’s a really quick video):

Tomorrow, my guest blogger is none other than Amsterdam-based Fashion Photographer, Book Author, and Educator, Frank Doorhof
I love Frank, and have learned a lot from him — make sure you check out this post tomorrow (PLUS: if you live in Santa Cruz, he’s doing a one-day workshop there that will blow your mind. What an opportunity! Here’s the details).

Have a great Tuesday everybody, and we’ll see you here tomorrow for Frank’s Guest Post. :)

Hi folks – sorry I missed posting on Friday – I was out in San Diego for my seminar, and by the time I got back from a dinner/meeting and the seminar and all, I was too whipped to write so I called in “lame.” However, I’m tan, rested, and ready (well, ready anyway), so here is #2 in my series.

This one (below) is a feature Adobe snuck past a lot of folks — they didn’t make much noise about it at all, but it creates a lot of the cross-processed and film looks that are all the rage these days. Check out the video – it’s actually pretty cool, and gets you those looks without having to buy a plug-in.

Quick shout out to the photographers in San Diego
Many thanks to all the folks who came out to my seminar there – had a great time meeting everybody and just love any chance I get to be out there. What a great city! My next seminars are in Orlando, Florida and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida next month.

Hope you all have a great Monday, and I’ll be back tomorrow with #3 in our series. :)

Best,

-Scott

Howdy, folks. Ready for a fun coupla weeks? Good – me, too!

Today I’m launching a new 10-part series called “10 Things You Didn’t Realize (or forgot) Were in Photoshop” and we’re kicking it off today with #1: a short video on a little known, yet no less awesome tool called “The Color Replacement Tool.” (BTW: if you just said to yourself, “The Color Replacement Tool!? What the heck is that?” well, you’re going to feel right at home in this new series).  Here we go!

Happy Friday, everybody! I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to write about today, until I saw this tweet yesterday, and then I knew I had to do a short video (below), which is part studio technique and part retouching in Photoshop (the Photoshop part is really simple. Heck, the studio technique is really simple. It’s all simple — you just have to remember to do it during the shoot or you may not have much of a prayer afterward.
